Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

we're going at a good pace. i don't think we should skip aggressively in the first round when there's good activity/conversation. i PM'd him. last activity 1am last night, so he should be aware this is going on.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

Kawhi being hated on by certain people is confusing at best. He was a top 5 player going into last year and this injury doesn't have career ending implications. In the limited sample this past season, he was still extremely good. He is also very young still.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

AD is the clear #1 because of versatility and team building

KD ? Go find your alpha player to carry this beta while picking 48th next
Giannis ? Ok but if you pick a non-shooting player next to him spacing is ****ed

AD ? Can play 4 in big ball, 5 in small ball, decent enough from 3 that if you have an elite non-shooting player you can still pick him

This is not only about superstar potential, AD is the only PF/C itl that is not flawed offensively and defensively.

24 teams will struggle to not get exploited with a big who can't D, or who can't switch, or who can't post IT ....

BUT THE NEW YORK JAZZ ISN'T ONE OF THOSE TEAMS

Yeah Guivre, KD really needed an alpha to carry him these past couple years. Delusionally bad take bud. AD was a good pick tho!

You should be banned considering what happened with the last draft you set up and ran

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

if Curry was taken, definitely thinking about "TTP." Embiid was #2 on Steelers short list.

I'm going with Nikola Jokic. Can do it all offensively. Scares me on defense.

I'll take one of the most unique pieces to build around, Ben Simmons. Hoping for countless evenings spent at the shooting gym, not the Kardashian mansion.

I don't love Dipo but you were right about him becoming great without RWB in Indy.

15th a brutal spot but thibk you have to gamble on upside there. Dipo ceiling just nowhere near high enough.

Was hoping Jokic would fall. I just woke up and on Dad duties. Give us 30 to decide and write up.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I'd imagine a linear construction around high floor (e.g Oladipo) players is more viable in this year's draft than any of the last few. Just so many back prime and front prime studs, but only a couple pure prime (Brow, Kawhi, Oladipo only guys 24-28 year 1).

I disagree that gambling on upside is necessary with a middle round pick. You REALLY can't afford to strike out on a first round pick. Dipo has a nice floor and his ceiling could be a Gary Payton lite. Not even a fan of his but I think he is solid to build a team around.
