Agreed, Epipen's doing very well, but I think people are underating Mchale's awesomeness for some reason.

His ts% went from .564 to .584 this year, and he shot almost 40% on 3s. His % went up a little an d his usage went down a little. Duh. He went from being the only option to being the third option.

agreed I wish I had pick #30 in this draft because then I woulda still been able to grab McHale and get Billups without having to trade up for him too. I also would have a high 3rd round pick too.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

uhh yeah, epi has the best team so far because he's picked 2 players, and those picks were ahead of others... obv he's drafted well so far too, but to say he has the best team right now is sorta dumb

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

epip vs. gka in a 2v2 would be sweet. I'd give the edge to epip because Billups speed advantage over Pierce, but if it's make it take it and GKA scores they might never give the ball back.

I mean, he is an excellent low post scorer, but I don't think he's too underrated here.

fyp, and he also shoots ft's at like 80 percent so you can't hack him like Shaq, and plays elite D unlike Shaq as well.

please we can def defend a lot better than gka could defend us, lol @ gasol being even close to able to stop McHale (not saying u said it, but it should be if Epip scores they might never give the ball back, not GKA due to this). McHale could do a good job vs gasol tho on d, and Billups could do a decent job vs Pierce too.

he's 32 and coming off of double ankle surgery. Even if this is guaranteed to happen every time, you get 8 healthy seasons of an elite SG and one of the best 3pt shooters ever.

Almost cost us the game last night though

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

In case anyone missed the spreadsheet that I posted late last night of the entire draft order, here it is again for all your trading needs. Maybe edit it into the main draft thread so that people who actually spend their lives doing something worthwhile won't have to read this whole thread?

i'm voting more based on who picked the best at each spot, and i really liked both of his picks so far. i guess that puts the higher picks at a disadvantage, so you better do something good when it gets back to you in 3 weeks.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

After bobbo made the shaq pick I made a quick joke about it. He made a good point that you have a 9 man roster, not exactly good for hack-a-shaq IMO
