Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I remember too much of Starbury......IDK about top 5 talent either, I'm not sure he was ever that good.

He didn't PM me a writeup. He's been solid so far, so I assumed one will be forthcoming.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Everytime I target a player, he ends up going within two picks. I was going to pick Mullin at 69, give me a few to come up with someone else and I'll put my pick up.

Mullin was my favorite non-Celtic growing up cuz I'm lefty and I had the same crew cut as him and enjoyed alcohol a lot

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

ROFL, I sent a message to Noze to pick for me:

Here is my list:

Tim Hardaway
Mullin

If those aren't available:

Jermaine
Boozer
Another guy I won't name.

This is pretty funny.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Starbury has epic abilities, he just needs to be on a championship caliber team like the one I'm going to field.

He came online and posted it right after you and it was deleted.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Mullin

I mean seriously, how does he fall to the late 60's? Am I missing something?

I just remember loving him as a kid, and then I saw his stats and was shocked he fell.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

HSP, thanks for not disappointing.

Ok, last picks:

Best: Mullin by a mile
Next best: ugh they all suck. Let's try it this way:
Least worst: JoN, at least he blocks shots.

Man, I am calling Boozer a better pick than Marbury just ecause so mant good PGs are left. Bah, sale with PFs. Eff this mess, I dislike both picks.

Kidcolin, remember our Marbury discussion? "He didn't decline, people just realized he wasn't really that good".

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I deleted it because I saw seadood came through with it. My writeup was basically copy/pasted from wiki. I don't think it matters too much though, sounds like people hate it enough that saying "Led the league in blocks in 2003" isn't going to change anyone's mind.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Okay so now that some of you on your high horses have done your "LOLOLOL" routine, why don't you explain in more detail your disdain for the pick so much, and actually make a coherent argument against the points I made in the writeup.

It's probably good to get one up there anyway.

I think JO represents solid value at this point. There aren't many defensive stalwart big men available that have offensive capabilities, and he's one of them.
