Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

While we're at how'd everyone like the KJ/Nique pairing? Seems pretty explosive. KJ might be my next mayor, fwiw.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

KJ and Nique are awesome, but at this point you have 2/3 of your backcourt, neither of which can hit 3s, and you need to build a front court ASAP. So essentially you're either gonna have to pick a 4 who can hit 3s or potentially pass over better 2 guards just so you get one who can hit 3s.

Still, christ, those guys can get to the bucket at will.

Zonderland is the name of a trance song I used to listen to a lot, and it has "land" in it so it sounds like a location. Expunge = eradicate, didn't want to make a name that 26000 teams already have.

Edit: actually he only played half of his 28-year-old season, so I guess he would only get credit for half of that.
It's not his exact age-28 season that matters here.... we're not cherry-picking individual seasons - a guy with 25 PER at 27, 20 PER at 28, and 25 PER at 29 is more valuable than a guy with 20 PER at 27, 25 PER at 28, and 20 PER at 29 (not saying that PER is the end-all and be-all of value, but you get the point I am making here).

I vote for letting Assani do what he wants since he clearly knows what he's doing. Shark doctor and epipen especially need to stfu as they've been trying to steal the reigns since this thing started, and it's getting annoying.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I still have like 400 posts to catch up on, but I'd like to say I am so psyched that the inevitable and much awaited battle royale between Assani and Epipen is finally on. Despite throwing them both into our fantasy basketball league, it hadn't happened in earnest until no. I am stoked.

lol wtf? I don't give a crap about running this league, I just wanted there to be a reasonable time inbetween picks (24 hour time limit) like any other reasonable person does.

How about it. MEBenhoe is like absent from 99% of discussions and comes in six guns a blazin', and then out of nowhere Yeti comes flying in like he's got a dog in this hunt. I'm finding the posts from today to be kind of mind blowing.

Prepare to be disappointed. The last 400 posts could easily be compiled into about 5 posts.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

It's cool guys, I would change my name to EPeen but I already have too many posts on here it would kill what i've worked so hard to get (lots of posts on 2+2 ldo).

You guys can call me EPeen from now on though, as I think it's by far the coolest name eva.

Can I at least change my team name in our N2 fantasy bball league from the very creative name of Boston Celtics (took me a while to come up with it) to EPeen?

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Must be city-nickname format.

Boston EPeens is likely acceptable, but I'd defer to the commish.
