+1. I wouldn't be shocked at all if Lebron/KD are still 1/2 or 2/1 3 years from now.

No issues keeping the draft slot that the actual pick was made from. If its an easy tweak for the spreadsheet maker that is.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

Ya I mean if you're going to slander the draft format after there's a 10 day thread discussing it, please don't mention undrafteds

If you don't want to take a coach, don't.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I honestly think Ben Simmons is a top-3 asset. He just put up a damn dominant 20.0 PER, 9.2 WS rookie season, and some people aren't impressed (Donovan Mitchell had 16.7 and 5.2 // Tatum was 15.3, 7.1).

Sure, the knock that he can't shoot is fair, and if this year's free-throws are determinant, it's not good. But considering that in college he was closer to .670 and he was .700+ for the playoffs, it's more likely that he's a better shooter than people give him credit for. He has a good looking stroke and it's not as if he can't shoot 3's, as so far he hasn't done so. I imagine Philly is going to start forcing him to take them, so it'll be interesting to see how he does next year. If he can get it to say Draymond's level, he's an all-NBA'er. If he somehow gets it to .380+? MVP - clean.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

ben simmons lost to jayson tatum in the playoffs, hope that explains why hes not a top 3 player. (in a series they were 3-1 favorites or so, going in, no less). great regular season play though.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

38% 3 point% is damn high for a guy who shot 11 3 pointers all year and made 0.

simmons struggled against the celtics in the playoffs as well.

if this was a full dynasty i think simmons would go a lot higher.

True, but Embiid was fiddling around all series with his mask, UNDRAFTED scored like 3, 22, 1, 3, 5, and Brad game-planned him. Even then, it's not like he was completely shut-down.

If not for an elite set-play there at the end, and some WIM, they were right there.

And I'm pretty sure all 11 3's this year were heaves. None of them were legit.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

So even worse, it's doubtful he becomes a decent shooter and this coming from a guy who really likes the Sixers. Maybe if he's lucky he can shoot 3s like Giannis.

I expect him to be an amazing playmaker and defender who will improve his shot but it's doubtful he'll ever be better than league average at shooting.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I don't know why y'all saying him not shooting 3's is worse than him really sucking at them. I'd rather take Mystery Box over Giannis' form, for sure. I'm just thinking about the big men who never shot a 3 growing up, and then being pretty decent at it. I know gym shots are different, but there is that video too where he's stroking them back like 10+ in a row, in rhythm. I feel it makes more sense to believe that he never had to take it, than boy can't shoot.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

He is no threat to take any perimeter shots.

It allows the defense to help off him and shrinks the floor.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

it might be because the average distance of his shot was 5.5 feet this year. giannis is 8.4 as a comparison. gobert is 2.0.

I agree with this totally, which is why I think BB is going to have to force him to shoot it next year. Quality is still up for debate.

Haha spoiler totally got me. Was expecting someone else who is dropping relative to public perception

Going to be a polarizing pick for sure. I think I would have waited another half round

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

brad seems like another pick that'd be better in a full dynasty format since he's so young. he lost to a LOL coach again.

Yeah brad’s team isn’t going to be super stacked anymore especially without a first round pick. He also doesn’t get to enjoy all the ridiculous assets Danny gave him from the lolNets.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I mean you literally just saw a bunch of undrafteds go from elite players to potentially out of the league in less than a years time, while a bunch of turds come to boston and have career years.
