In other news, this thread is at epic status.

I guess i must be stupid but after the last couple of picks I had the Feeling he might fall to me. Seeing the reactions, it was a little silly, but what an awesome Combo he would have made with James....
An Bynum+ Wade serioulsy?It's like the hill+ kemp combo, except you're not going to be good in the first few years

also, what do people think of clark's bigs? Ewing-Nance is a pretty daunting starting 5-4/

Nance is just an insane value here, I mean, wow.

Should Bynum have even been picked in this draft? Let alone the 2nd round? I mean, only 35 games of good basketball and injury concerns. You're asking everyone to take a giant leap of faith that he is going to be good. Wow, just wow.

PS Wow.

I have no time to give indepth reasoning, simply my opinion and it should be clear why these picks are loltastic.

14. Stockton - lol
16. Dirk - haha
19. Clyde - probably should be about 65th
21. Mchale - wow

Yao - should be much higher
Amare - should be much higher

Stockton is a 10 time all-nba player, a good defender and 2nd all-time in assists with no injury issues. Yeah horrible pick.

Yet you have time to post completely useless posts with no arguments or reasoning? Either give us legit arguments or stop wasting our time.

This post is probably 500x worse than any of those picks.

1st all time in assists, yo.

The guy was basically the perfect point guard. Anyone who says the pick is LOL doesn't know anything about basketball. I actually think he could have gone higher. And I hated the guy when he played.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Thanks for re-opening the fascinating in this thread, Hova. In your defense, "Lol" is not by definition a criticism, therefore it's possible you were praising the Stockton pick and were "lolling" at how he fell so far. I am doing you a massive favor by blatantly ignoring the context of your other asinine comments.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

the beginning of this round featured some bad picks, some picks made prematurely, and some obvious picks. at this point, it seems like everyone is drafted very well. i was sure the player i wanted would slip to me not too long ago, but now that it seems people have their heads on straight, im not really that confident. 21 picks to go baby!

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

KJ should have gone alot earlier imo, but I was praying he fell. A lot of retired players have fallen a lot farther then they should have (this has been said before).

xxThe_Lebowskixx,

Please delete that post immediately. Not cool at all to give out hints like that.

KJ had his own shoe, therefore I am surprised he fell this far.
