Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Somebody picking parker at this stage tells me they didn't follow the NBA before 2003.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

someone pm dtemp (hes up after capeano)

personally I think you should wait until dtemp logs on, no point in making capeano's pick if dtemp isn't even here

edit: omg flyingmoose is browsing too, he is up after dtemp, we can knock out a bunch of picks today (thank god)

Yeah, I deleted my post because the more I looked at it, the more justifiable it looked. Still don't love the pick, but it's def not as bad as I first thought it was.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

As I said given his age Parker is a really good pick in this thing. Maybe not the pairing but he's getting better and better and only just now playing the years that qualify for this.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

you guys are getting a little too hardcore about getting picks out. I'll be damned if I'm checking when people are logged on and whatnot.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

there were much bette choices ou there to pair with Tmac. As great as parker is, he has no jumphot and he is not a great passing point guard.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

There, he did it himself.

Kind of sad, I was looking forward to writing Tim "I Hate Gays" Hardaway.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Don't have time to catch up on everything right now, but....


Really really tilted. Nicholas PMed me back at 6:30AM my time saying: "i'll do this trade if u pm me to confirm in the next 20ish minutes before I post my pick". Obviously I just woke up so I missed out on him. And then my guy was taken within the next few picks.

Sidney Moncrief was the guy I had really really wanted(Seadood I tried to be as honest as possible without giving it away when you PMed me about him). I won't go into details now, but I think hes by far the steal of the draft.

It just sucks for me that Nicholas actually would've done the trade but we just weren't on at the same time(despite me being on 10+ hours per day!!!!) and then my guy goes a few picks later.

I still may be interested in trading up, but I'm not as willing to pay a huge price now.

I am glad to see a lot of picks made and a few pages worth of discussion. I'll be sure to catch up on all of that when I have a chance later today.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

NOOOOOO I wanted him...Hardaway is insane value right now, he seriously puts all the pretender point guards in this round to shame. Best crossover in NBA ever, two seasons of 20/10, had a pretty long career despite a few injuries, there's no excuse for him dropping this far. He's the best point guard taken this round.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I thought he was BPA and I really wanted a PG although I proabally like KJ better of the guys who were picked lately. Pretty damn good passer, the only problem I have is he liked to chuck the 3s too much. Defensively for GSW he was weak but in Miami he was a damn good defender imo.

Timmy's a very good pick. Better PG than Parker imo. Just rules out John Amaechi as your late-round sleeper
