Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

NBA Finals and only one pick? That sucks.

Also, really dislike the Reggie Lewis pick and fit. It doesn't look like you need a scorer, much less an inefficient one with a condition.

Reggie Lewis dying is my first sports memory. I remember exactly where I was and who I was with. So sad.

So you're thereby admitting that heavy minutes can skew bulk stats. Thats all I was saying. Yes obviously its good to play more minutes. However, my point is that the gap between Wilt's bulk stats and the others isn't as big as it appears since to get a true measure you'd have to add the others bulk stats to the average bulk stats of a bench player who replaces them up to the amount of minutes Wilt played.
And these guys have bad backups. I agree that there's a need to account for the "replacement player", but by and large you're talking about total scrubs.
