True but we can still hack him a very good amount of times with my bench goons or my starters who aren't in foul trouble.

All this hacking will be done in the 4th quarter as well for the most part.

Alright guys, sorry I'm not able to be on as much as the rest of you, but why has EPIP picked twice? I'm a little lost.

no matter how you slice it though, claiming mchale was on shaq's level offensively is just so outlandish and wrong that i dont think i need to refute this point. a simple "no" works fine.

By that time Shaq will have 25 and 10. You'll probably be down 6-8 points.

I didn't claim McHale was on shaq's level offensivley, I said McHale was the best low post scorer in this league BESIDES Shaq (hence Shaq is obv better at low post scoring).

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I was a little surprised at the love my Mutombo pick got, and surprised at all the hate for Gilbert. The man averaged 29.3 ppg with a .581 ts% in his age 24 season - it is ridiculously hard to find that combination of bulk and efficiency. And I really needed bulk scoring more than anything after drafting Mutombo. Defensively, Mutombo is perfect to pair with a perimieter guy who loves to gamble going for the steal (and is good at it too).

Im coming round to it, didnt consider you had him with Mutombo when i first reacted. Gilberts only problems are injuries and bad shots really, and if you're playing him at the point he doesnt give you a ton of pure point play.

I feel like you answered your own question. Hes a career 49.5 eFG%(good but not great) and 57.4% TS%(very good, but not great). I don't even know why you bother to look at straight FG% as its one of the most worthless stats I can think of.
