Obvious pick which has excellent value, IMO.

Also, tuq, did you change my avatar? Mad propz.

Though I'd rather have the undertitle, kthx?

I hooked you up Franchise

Round 1, Pick 12

Karl Malone



With so many elite big men taken before me, I took either the best or the second best PF of all time (depending on your point of view) with the 12th pick in the draft.

Malone had a 11 year stretch where he averaged 25+ ppg and 9.7+ rpg and missed no more than 2 regular season games in any season. In addition, Malone had 14 straight finishes in the top 10 of the NBA MVP voting. While he didn't walk away with a ring, its impossible to argue that Malone was not one of the top 20 players in NBA history.

2 NBA MVP Awards (96-97, 98-99)
10 Time First Team All NBA
14 Time All Star
Career Averages of 25ppg and 10.1 rpg
Career Playoff Averages of 24.7 ppg and 10.7 rpg
All Defensive 1st or 2nd team 4 times
Fathered child with 12 year old

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

I attempted to find a very lol pic of Karl Malone.

Also, Malone was the player I was speaking of when I said I hate drafting him, but at pick 12, I had to take him.

This is brutality. You have had like 4 hours to narrow it down to two guys. Get the card up to the podium son.

Really Assani, we should put these guys on a time limit. Saying you are going to sleep on it, especially when you were on deck for hours, is wack.
