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

I love basketball but I suck at analyzing it. Though I can see now why Boozer doesn't work with dirk. Whatever. I'll come back when I can see straight.

Include a writeup on JO with why you think he fits your team IMO.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

moose,

I went from absolutely loving JON a few years ago to hating him very quickly. Overall I think he's very solid since he's actually quite sick at D. But he's mega mediocre on offense and he's kinda a ball hog and he's made of glass. You have two guys with very early peaks who aren't very efficient.

Bad shooter for a mid-volume guy. Turnover-prone, and most of all he is an very very bad defender. So as a PG, he brings little offensively and is a liability on defense.

Because he's usually been the best offensive player on his team and did not have the luxury of only taking high EV shots, and he was not coached properlyl and thus took too many threes.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

i'm thinking HSP is just having fun cuz Barkley and Marbury is ****ing lol dude.

Talkin' with JoA (zomg conspiracy).. we both agree that Marbury isn't terrible.. but he was soo overrated in his youth and it really makes zero sense for him to go this high

his ts% is... better. he's a below average scorer. the problem is he takes a ton of shots and he's just gonna take shots away from barkley.

Ah, the "my coach will fix what's wrong with him" argument. The last bastion of someone defending a turrrbl pick.

He played with KG for 2 years, and both those years his TS% was below his career average. Please try again.

It's just tough to start with 2 power forwards, even though they could be on the court together. Not great defense, etc.

The last three years he's been on the worst team in the NBA, with the worst coach, the worst GM, one of the worst centers, and nothing remotely resembling a NBA level supporting cast. And before that he was a 20 PER guy for seven seasons. He's going to shoot less low percentage shots like threes and deep jumpers, and pass more and take guys off the dribble.

Not to mention he wanted to split up with KG because he wanted to be the man. OVER KG!

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Is there going to be a separate round just for coaches or can we pick them at any round?
