Agree on the PG preference.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

arg I know this is kinda dick (but others have done it so whatever) but I need more time to think about this pic (I thought for sure my sf would have been taken by now but I really want to pick someone else) but I am going out for the night right now and will think about it a lot, and won't make my pic til tomorrow morning.

Shaq and David Robinson also accomplished this feat. Yeah, T-Mac was pretty damn good when he was young.

I also prefer that other PG.

hey i'm just trying to blend in with the other people who took forever

naw but seriously, if the sf was picked I woulda instantly made this pick now, and I was fully expecting him and Ewing to be gone right now so this would be easy, I need to ask some friends advice on it etc.

It's saturday night anyway, I doubt that many people would be here picking after me anyway

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

arg screw it u guys are lucky I feel guilty cause this has been going so slow and even though I should spend more time to think it I won't, and I already wrote up my stuff on McHale and not on the SF.


Round #1 Pic #21 Kevin McHale 6'10 PF/C (someone find a photo pls)

Wow where to start....Kevin McHale has the best post moves in the history of the NBA. Not only did he have the best post moves ever, but the 6'10 for his height is misleading, because of his ridiculously freakish long arms he played like a 7+ footer. He was discribed by Barkley as the best player he ever played against which says a ton. He has been discribed by many as "the surest 2 points in basketball history", and it is 100% correct. McHale dominated, and his career stats would be a lot higher than 17 ppg, if A) he didn't come off the bench for a few years (he only averaged 31 mpg for his career), B) He didn't play on a stacked offensive team and C) His career wasn't cut short by a freak ankle injury which he decided to play on, which ruined his career. McHale is the only player in NBA History to shoot both over 60 percent from the field, and over 80 percent from the FT line in a season, and he would have done it TWICE if the very next year he shot .004 percent higher from the ft line (he shot .797 for the year). What also makes Kevin McHale's back to back 60+ percent seasons from the floor even more impressive, is that unlike Chandler/Dwight Howard (players in todays game who shoot 60 percent from the floor) Kevin had to constantly work through double/tripple teams in the post to get his shot (not wide open dunks off pick and rolls). As well as his post moves, McHale developed a deadly jump shot throughout his career, so he did not always need to be in the post/have the ball in his hands to be an effective scorer/floor spacer.

Kevin McHale was also a terrific rebounder, and would have gotten more rebounds if he hadn't been in the arguably best rebounding frontcourt ever with Parish+Bird.

Kevin McHale was also a stud on defense. He was selected to the All-Defensive First or Second team six times (3 for each and would have been many more times had injury not stopped him). His freakishly long arms allowed him to block shots most players could never do. He was also relativley quick for his size.

Kevin McHale was a complete all around player who could do it all, can play either PF or Center, and can matchup well vs any Power Foward or Center of all time except for Shaq (but no one can matchup with Shaq anyway). The only issue was the injuries, but it has been said many times that he would have had a much longer career if he had not toughed it out on a bad ankle throughout the 87 season which ruined his career.

I didn't think he'd fall to me in 2nd, but he was like my best bet of someone who falls to early 2 and is insane value.

if it wasn't for the fact that his post seemed to be put together somewhat quickly, the whole last hour would've been an awesome level by epip.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

lol @ people listening to Assani by saying just the player's who they were considering position instead of the name. As if "the other PG" won't make someone who would have been influenced by the name figure it out or immediately look it up anyway, especially since he has been mentioned many times in this thread anyway.

Seriously, can we just drop this silly rule and at least be able to compare similar players? Maybe not talk about potential sleepers and stuff, but later in the draft most people will be drafting based on positional and game style needs, so I don't see the problem with discussing whether another SG would have been better as they are being picked.
