I was only 12 when he came into the league, so I don't really remember it. However if a scouting report listed him as injury prone, then I'm likely to believe the scouting report. Why would it say that for no reason?

No, I meant Marc Bulger, Manning is more like Starbury imo. Your avatar caused my freudian slip, I guess I am racist and need to be banned.

After the Horford blowup I needed to grab a wing who could score and who wasn't a complete liability on the defensive end. Corey Maggette fills both of those needs. Maggette will be able to slash the lane leaving Richmond to roam on the perimeter. Arguably Maggette's best asset is getting to the FT line which will also help if I have to slow things down in a halfcourt set. He can also run the floor like the rest of my players. On the break I expect my team to be very deadly. Maggette's midrange game is also solid. He's a tremendous athlete with great strength who I'm hoping can help on D. Injuries are a bit of a concern but I feel like I'm getting one of the BPA here.

Team so far:
PG: Jason Kidd
SG: Mitch Richmond
SF: Corey Maggette
PF/C: Al Horford
great great pick imo. This was another of my 6 that I had my eye on SINCE MY 2ND ROUND PICK. Two of those still remain now.

Very much makes up for Horford.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Brandon Roy would have been a nice addition to my ROY/shoulda been ROY team. I think there are some more established players out there but Roy looks solid.

Also liked the RJ part.

Roy is a good pick one of the young guys who are good and can "swing."

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

hmm... not sure how I feel about Roy here. I was kinda hoping he'd fall to me. But he's had medium-ish injuries both seasons.

I love his game though. He's kinda money.

I honestly can't tell if this is another example of Assani leveling or what.

I don't understand this sentiment in regards to AI at all, I keep checking his stats to make sure I'm not biased (as the tallest person in my family I come just shy of 5'10, we love the little athletes in my household). Hes never been surrounded by elite shooting and he has still put up 5 seasons of 7.1-7.9 apg. Hes always going to be a score first guy, but hard to build around? Very Good interior D was enough for him to take that team to the finals where the 2nd leading scorer averaged 12 pts a game. What you need around AI is solid interior D and perimeter shooting, both of which are abundant in this league. AI should be one of the few players who benefits from this format because he will be surrounded by the best players of his career.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I think Roy is better as PG (I was looking at him for my next pick) since he's smart, passes and shoots well, but isn't as aggressive driving to the hoop. Great player, but I think there are better fits for that team.

See team USA. He's still a shoot first pg. Yes he's extremely talented I just think it's hard to build around an undersized SG who wants to be a PG. He also weighs 160 pounds which is tiny when you have guys like LBJ playing the swing in the NBA.

Wrong he is aggressive driving to the hoop. People just don't think he is because of how he plays. Very crafty, slow and controlled... when he sees his opportunity and it's the right basketball decision he goes for it. Really smart player and has championship level poise as a young'un already.

Yeah, I think the types of characteristics that you mentioned are better suited for PG play. SGs tend to be more explosive and more pure scorers, as they are usually guarded by more athletic players.

I don't try to single you or anyone else out. I just argue with statements I disagree with.
