Mason certainly assures you'll lead the league in pump fakes.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

part of me wants to be like "sick pick" because it's not often you'll get a guy who'll put up that many shots at that good a %, but man between him and daugherty, you're really gonna have to find someone to help pipp out on the defensive end. still it was one of two ways that you could've gone (i was thinking either a 3 pt shooter or defensive presence in the paint here for you)

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

actually yeah i like it. whenever you address a very important need like that with a very effective player, it's a good pick. just means you're going to have to continue drafting well down the road.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

actually, relative to his era, ellis was a fairly average defender. will he help on the defensive end? no. is he going to hurt you? meh, pip is going to be locking down the best offensive player on the other end, so unless he plays a team w/ 2 really good slashers, he'll be ok. im tryingto look at a weakness in ellis, and really, he's just a real solid quality pick at this point in the draft, and i can see how batt's team is looking. (What i mean i suppose is ellis is a really good catch and shooter, and at 6-7 he'll have a nice size complement to pippen...) i mean i suppose batt's team wont be top 10 or 15 defensively, but he so far looks like an average defensive team and a very good offensive team, which would put him as an above average team.. cant go wrng

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Mason: Dude was an animal. Had a few years of limited production but then really started to pick it up in the Riley Knicks years. Was sort of an innovator as a "point forward". Watching Mase bring up the ball at his size and handle it like he did was incredible. Dude also set some mean screens. He should be able to mesh nicely with Nash and Manu.

Sabonis: I think he's been addressed fairly well. He came into the league late, but when he finally arrived he was legit.

Ellis: Nice pick. Will be interested to see what post presence you decide to draft to beging rounding out your team. Ellis could shoot the rock so well.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Beidrins I like him but I think he's pretty early. Defnsively he blocks shots but his metrics are bad but then again he's on a horrible defensive team. He is extremely efficient though although like Shaq, D12 he can't shoot FTs, his are extremely ugly. He is very young though and does have some upside I think he would be available later but I can't really smash a big man pick.

Maybe a touch early, but if Camby and Chandler are getting picked I don't think I can afford to wait any longer.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Biedrins wow...think it may be a little early but he's really rounding out very nicely and he's still only 22 as you mentioned.

I'd been curious about where Ellis would go

I have a couple guys in mind that I'm also curious to see what people think (or to draft if I get gifted that team).

edit: just saw the Biedrins pick. Not sure what I think; I gotta do some research

Nath, as far as I know the team is yours. Assani had no problem with me giving the team to lapoker, so I don't see why it would be a problem to give to you.
