Take a coach in the 3rd imo.

I'm assuming any round, but anything other than round 9 is a pretty big leak imo

Like the year he took as many shots as Kevin Garnett. Or more than Marion and Stoudemire.

Hell, he took 18 shots/game with Joe Johnson, Amare, and Marion on the team. gtfo. The guy's a ballhog and he always will be. He's gonna shoot more than Charles Barkley.

He looked pretty awesome running the Athens Olympic team into the ground.

So I take it you're not taking Larry Brown as your coach?

HSP's misses Starbury's peak when he took 19 a game when he was 23. Playing the decline ldo.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

You guys are forgetting the intangibles Marbury brings to the table. He's a great character guy who every coach wants around the locker room. He was team captain of the Knicks for a reason.

They are both pretty freaking bad to me. Bynum has height but is injury prone and has put together one third of a season well. Congrats he can dunk.

Marbury is a cancer, his teams get better when he leaves, he's a ballhog and I can't stress it enough..the dude is ****ing bat**** crazy.

Chris Mullen is very good, but you are going to have to convince me that he's a great pick for Stockton. John was a better PnR guy than a penetrate-kick out guy.

I think there are better picks available to pair up with Stockton.. Mullen may be BPA right now, but I don' think he fits with your guy very well.
