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 ....

It's unbelievable what's going on right here!

Your team has the 19th pick in a draft of any player in the world and you take a coach. This is the same as buying bitcoin at 18k. Good lord.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

With the 18th pick in the draft, we’re gonna take Rudy Gobert.

Top 2-3 defensive presence in the game right now, and as we’re getting him for his age 26-30 seasons, he should hopefully remain top 5 defensively throughout this format.

Gonna be easy to build around him, especially when you consider the positional scarcity up top at the 5. Yazz ripping off the long winning streak (37-18 with vs 11-16 without) and making the playoffs this year after he returned from injury with a mostly inefficient Dmitch carrying the offense and a group of above average role players gives us a good team building blueprint that will guarantee us a playoff appearance throughout the time frame.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I dislike Mitchell. Lifehedge. Otherwise would have drafted Tatum.

Drafted Gobert in the last one of these I did. Working on a different team construction.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I think Rudy was the best asset avail for awhile. There is someone I desperately want on my team. But I'm going to try to land him at the tail end of my snake.

Positional scarcity. my dude here just turned 24 and is about to be a maximum salary player. 4th in NBA in WS/48. 6th in defensive win shares. 18th offensive. I believe he's the last cornerstone center available.

Clint Capela

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

With all the 4s that're gonna be drafted to close at 5, I do not think people saying "positional scarcity" at the 5 know what it means. I also think that makes Clint a not particularly exciting (though probably fine) pick, and I don't think Rudy was crazy slept on. I mean he should have gone before Cousins and the coach, but those were bad picks, and you're instantly limited with him as your C on O, and O is more important than D.

Yeah I feel like Gobert should have been taken a little earlier, definitely way before Mitchell.

Last sentence could also be true, but imo I think these teams will be better 3-5 due to less teams, so you can field a good offense around him if that makes sense.

Why do you guys think this? Aging curves won't be too far off given how good of a rookie season Mitchell had and Gobert's injury concerns, so we're basically just arguing the value of massively outlier great defender (though admittedly less so against small ball teams) who is neutral on O against primary or secondary creator who would be a little unsettling as the former and pretty sweet as the latter, is likely to be a clear positive on both sides of the ball, can play a cpl positions, create late in the clock, etc. Also has more upside, in theory.

Re: 2018 NBA 5 Year Dynasty Draft

I’ll take a chance and roll with

Jimmy Butler

4th in RPM in 17-18
4 consecutive all-star appearances
4-year averages of 23 PER, 58% TS, ~11 WS per season, and 22/6/5/2 box score stats.

He’s coming off a meniscus tear and will be 29-33 in this exercise, but he should be much easier to build around than other available options with his well-rounded game, three-level scoring ability, and defensive flexibility.

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.
No, it is that he can’t shoot 3s. He couldn’t even shoot 3s in college. In fact he rarely shot outside the lane in college. Teams would literally sag off into the lane daring him to shoot and he wouldn’t. At least he was smart enough to realize he shouldn’t shoot outside the lane though.
