Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I can't tell for sure because I refuse to read anymore than 2 sentences of these posts.

LOL....ok this definitely proves that we are spoiled. During the first round everyone was ok with giving people 24 hours to pick. We've had 3 or 4 picks just today! He hasn't even been on the clock for 12 hours I think. Give the guy some time here. Not everyone checks 2p2 every few hours.

+1

I think its up to people to at least pay attention to the thread once it gets close to their pick at least, regardless of whether or not they care during the other times.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

fwiw people who sign up for stuff like this and then go long periods of time without checking it or telling people they will be gone suck at life pretty hard. 12 hours isn't that bad though.

Its just a courtesy thing for me.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

God that problem is so hard because of the random god and not knowing whether they respond yes or no, it makes me think that you have to ask one question to each god, because if you ask two to a god and it happens to be the random one, you'll never be able to solve it.

We should have thought of the problem people who go out to drink and socialize would be for this draft!

I agree though, I made the point about 12 hours not being that bad. I wasn't specifically talking about the guy on the clock. Just wanted to state my feelings. Open up. Share. Let you all in.

Thats a 4:1 ratio of his career to date where he was significantly worse than Kwame Brown.
First 2 years are irrelevant. He got better. A lot. And he shouldn't have been sitting behind Kwame at all this year, but sometimes that's the way it goes.

Ya, the sample size is small, I don't dispute that. But I don't need to see a guy dunk 80 times to know he can dunk.

Bynum destroyed Amare (BOOM logic). Also Amare ain't quarter-bad (get it? the expression is half-bad, but he's only half a player and half of half is a quarter......snap) himself.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Going to bed soon. As I said before the draft started, we're not going to have a time limit. Some people may work long hours, some people may only check 2p2 while they are at work(Monday-Friday), etc. If it gets truly ridiculous then of course we'll eventually find him a replacement, but I'm willing to give people time. And if anyone wants to trade down then just PM me and wait for me to wake up to respond.

They aren't close to equal. I PM'd you someone who is very similar. Bynum also had a knee injury in high school that caused him to miss most of his senior year IIRC...

Other than the guy I PM'd, there probably isn't anyone who put up those numbers (or CP3s, etc) and then fell way off due to injury. There are countless guys who put up very good numbers though, and then declined rapidly due to injury.
