Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Seriously risky pick. Been seriously injured and has only played 1/2 of a good season so far. Probably 2-4 round reach....

yah it's a great tool.

the one defender who did pretty well against shaq has been tim duncan. (not surprising) limiting shaq over 27 games to 23.2/11.2 (while putting up 22/12.1) means they essentially canceled each other out.

its funny, there is a laundry list of guys shaq just demolished tho...
shaq vs ewing http://www.basketball-reference.com/...1&p2=onealsh01
shaq vs admiral

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

wow forgot he had Dwyane Wade. I like the pairing skills wise a mega ton. I hate that they might only play ~30games a season together ala Wade and Shaq.

nopair,

I support you and your non-trade, as trading is super gayballs.

I love Bynum as much as the next lakers homer, but I think he is a mega stretch here.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I like pairing bynum with wade alot here. Their styles fit perfectly together, and I like bynums interior defense alot, hes 7 feet tall but also has super long arms and a good vertical.

Wade is a player who needs the ball alot to be effective, so I need to surround him with people who are the opposites, like bynum, who are also great defenders.

I like my team thus far defensively and offensively

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

How the hell to we gauge Bynum in this stuff? I mean the other super young guys have already had great years where we can just assume the are most likely to put up similar numbers in the future.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Dudd,

I have heard that trading is gayballs from a very reliable source...so I am pretty skeptical of that trade.

I don't either, but he coulda at least had him swap his 4th for his 5th (I'm almost positive Clark woulda done this), (or try to get 3rd for 4th and hold out since Clark wanted to trade up desperatly) where the talent would actually be a little different.
