yes, he was quick and long. he wont be able to guard real explosive 2s (think of 2s that love driving) but guys who just stand and shoot (for example, a mike miller, hornacek, finley) he would do a great job since he's wonderful at contesting.

remember tho, the top 15 teams get the snake back at the top for the following round, so dont cast judgment yet.

i really love the direction of a few teams, there are a few that are questionable, but it really was my own fault (although how can you not!) to mark off a team after the 2nd round. again, starting 5 is so much more important for "fit" than 2. ppl lately are drafting great.

No I realize that, but I think a lot of the top 15 teams made a good amount of bad picks which really killed their potential.

And bad picks in the first 3-4 rounds hurt u a lotttttttttttt more than bad picks in the later rounds.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I have a rules question: Suppose someone is drafted and plays in the NBA but has a freak career-ending injury before he turned 24, not basketball related, do I get him at whatever point right before the injury happened? Or when he first came into the league? Or a hypothetical 24-year-old ersion of him?

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Edit your post; Jordan = Dirk? Again, nothing like each other. The other analogies are flawed, aside from the obvious Terry = Terry.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

i like both of these picks. both clark and capone have similar teams in that they both have guys who like do their best work in the paint, so it's a great pick for both to space things out.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion
