Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Man, all these ppl talking "who is larry nance" makes me want to name drop so bad. But alas, I must respect the rules.

There is one player that when he is taken, I am going to flip out. Whoever picks him will have my undying love and admiration.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

yarly. There are so many studs available its sick. Nance worked so well with Ewing and was such a great 2-way player I had to get him, but there are some total studs available.

Bobbo,

It's off topic, but my dad hates the NBA and saw the Kobe/Boozer commercial tonight, looked at me and said "Boozer looks like he's just reading the cue cards".

I'm not drafting, so can you just PM me some examples. Guys like Carmelo are bad examples. He shoots a lot. Bynum dunks a lot.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Anyway, I'm off to the DVR to watch tonight's games. Wanna give more props to Assani for a great thread. I've been ridiculously entertained, and I'm not even drafting. If I was, though, I would have picked Sheed first and gone for the All-Stoner team. The rest of the squad hasn't been picked yet, so I won't name them publicly, but we'd definitely have the most fun.

Honestly its just LOL samplesize IMO. And if you want to talk quality of sample, we're talking what 2 years of being 2nd/3rd string behind Kwame and Mihm and 0.5 years of being a very good center before being injured. Thats a 4:1 ratio of his career to date where he was significantly worse than Kwame Brown.

Don't make me hurt you. One more eligible but undrafted player name and I'm going to the calendar. I'm tired of editing your posts, even joke ones.

Sheed is the best player Detroit has, always has been. Chauncey is the MVP, always has been.

I know, but I've edited 3 of your posts the last few days. I'm maybe cranky, but I'm being honest...I've got better things to do.

So that isn't Clark in the pic, which is crazy to begin with. Is he still an old dude(not that there is anything wrong with that...)?

clark -
1. im very cranky, my team is getting spanked and is about to get eliminated.
2. my other team can;'t play on the road and could legitimately get eliminated next game.
3. come on, it's friday night, you're on 2p2, its not like there's an alarm going off anytime i post something that needs to be edited
4. i dont have anything else to say, just had to shower to take a break from the game it was so upsetting, and while gone, looks like we've made a mini run. weird.
