He was already ruined by then. That's the point. Plus, you ignored his 23.7/7.0/4.2 season.

You mean his partial season with the Clippers only 42 games.

the details: the player pool is essentially the same quality as the average pickup game at a college gym (minus the bottom 25% who absolutely suck). it plays kind of like a pickup game too: not really much post play, but definitely more passing and more solid fundamentals (maybe 90% have played organized ball before). 9 players for each of the 8 teams, everyone is 18-24 and in pretty decent shape, and we get 2 days of maybe 3 hours each to 'scout' the talent.

what kind of team should i be trying to draft?
essentially this question is: if you went to go play pickup and had to draft a team of pretty decent IQ basketball players, what would you be looking for?
Look for athletes. Basketball is the sport that athleticism wins. (moreso than any other imo) It's easiest to judge jumping/"in shape"/etc. too, so you don't need a heavy talent eye.

HIs full season stats are 20.6/6.8/3.8 like it matters. Unless I read this poorly?

Tsk Tsk Clark for bad stats. That was a half season when he traded. His full season total 20.6/6.8/3.8

That's about a push with the previous season that I quoted.

Ah, I just grabbed the wrong line, my bad.

Anyways, all pretty sick for a guy who was shot after year 1 in the league.

Manning should be pissed that he didn't have access to the medical advances regarding knee surgeries and procedures. I would be bitter. He was like a decade early.

I won't make the pick for him since he may have something up his sleeve but nath is about to melt y'alls faces off.

The last time we were told we were going to be stunned by a pick, Starbury was taken. Can't wait to see who follows a face melting.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I know who the best swing player available is or atleast I know top 5.................if he goes that way. I guess he could put Dirk at the 3.......although i think he goes with 1 guy.
