I'm 99% sure who Epippen wants.

And yes he is the worst injury guy so far if its him.

Yeah I knew this question would arise. I'm not sure about the answer though.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

lol, from ePippen11:
who is the guy with insane value right now, and who are the guys who should have been picked last round?

i think that takes away from the spirit of the game.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

There are definitely some bad and crazy picks but I think as a hole the picks have been pretty good for a while. There are hardly any super sleepers really left.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

yeah, i know who ePeen wants as well.

i dont get what the big problem is. do the research and present an argument why this wont happen. injury **** is so subjective anyway

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Maybe, I fall 17 picks this round which I don't think is that big of a deal.

I gain 23 positions in what is essentially my 9th(8th) round pick and 56 spots in what is my 10th(9th).

I don't think its that bad, I do agree I am maybe taking a little of the worst of it, but it really depends on where people go. At this point my 5th rounder I think is going to still be there in 17 picks. There is no telling who is going to be around later but I am glad I am picking sooner than I was, before I had near the last pick in the draft now I done at 341.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Guys i'm pretty sure it's not the guy ur thinking about although I know who it is (and I did ask D102 about him too).\

Anyway I should have the pick within the hour, I just need to do a little more research.

i mean its not nanking-level rape, but on the surface it looks pretty bad.

then again, if there' s a certain player you wanted in this spot and he falls 17 spots, then you won

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

ruff,

the 8th and 9th rounds are going to be filled with mediocre, sub-par players. You blew it hard.

i think you guys are being a little rough on him. assuming he had no other trade options, and his 'guy' falls 17 spots, he made a good deal.

(who else loves the famous ePeen stacking hypotheticals?)

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Unless the Jordan team starts making some late round steals, itll come down to these teams. everyone else is so far its not even close.

Patrick Ewing, Larry Nance, Mookie Blaylock, Allan Houston

Shaq, Eddie Jones, Derrick Coleman, Terrell Brandon

David Robinson, Terry Porter, Mark Aguirre

Reggie Miller, Dennis Rodman, Ron Artest, Sam Perkins




Hakeem/Glen Rice has promise until he mucked it up with Odom and Strickland.

People are already drafting mediocre and sub-par players and writing huge writeups to make them seem better than they are. Losing 17 spots now is not that big of a deal to me honestly. Because of the way it snakes, it is important to me to pick higher later, I got F'd by the snaking and getting a high 1st rounder.

I guess so. I'd take D12, Iggy, T-Hardaway and Steve Smith over your last pick.
