I don't want to say too much here, but if you know EXACTLY who you want, chances are pretty good he's going to get picked real soon.

Pick an undecisive player for me imo.

Just doing the writeup now. I think I could be making a hell of a reach and I can see criticisms already but screw it.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Dumars,

Seems like a reach to me. Good player, definitely going in this round, but I think taken a little early.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

you would've been better served trading this pick then reaching for dumars, imo.

make sure to list your team on your pick, also. interesting core for sure with dumars and cwebb, neither was known as a goto guy in the clutch.

I can think of a 3rd year player who finished #3 in MVP voting that pretty much did this (injuries played a part, but still had a long career) - you want me to name him?

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I had Dumars on my radar and def was looking at him if I had stayed put, I think he is a good pick although there is def a few players I woulda taken before him.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Also I am like 90 percent sure sergz will take the player I wanted besides Billups and it will be a great pick.

Edit: wow ok, nm he didn't.

Gilbert!

Man, this is where the draft gets fun. Clearly based on the last few picks other than Bosh, there may be a pool of like 25 guys that could go at any given pick.

Yeah but I dont think I could drop back twenty or so picks and hes still there (and worse, my other options definitely arent). Wanted another defensive stalwart who can also score and Dumars just edged out all the other candidates. If someone only 5-10 picks back wanted to trade then I do it and hope he's still there.

Agreed but I picked Billups because of position scarcity, there are tons of sg/sf's who can defend/shoot almost like Dumars could, but there is only one other PG who can defend/shoot like Billups can and that was Stockton.

At 24, Gilbert led the league in turnovers, so you got that going for you.

Sweating out each pick, there's someone I really want but I refuse to trade up.
