Who said anything about a face melter? Bogart was my "solid and safe" pick.

Bogart Outlaw was my #1 guy who I didn't think would go before me, so its a moot issue regarding that other player. Theres actually 2 guys out there right now, neither of whom I'd take with my next pick just due to fit, but I'm shocked that they havn't been taken.

Btw, I'm still looking to move up if anyone is interested.

Let me know whenever that guy is picked, but I have a hard time believing theres another guy with:

1. Very good defense
2. Great efficiency
3. Doesn't need the ball one bit on offense

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I would really like to see the Assani Fisher All-Stars vs. the KKF Ballaz in a seven-game series, 'cause that could really settle pretty much every important basketball debate right there on the court.

'A BUNCH OF THE KINDS OF GUYS YOU <3' vs. 'A BUNCH OF THE KINDS OF GUYS HE <3s'

'Post defense & efficiency win gamez!!!!' vs. 'Baller-ass mother****ers win games don't gimme that corny-ass bull****'

I thought the lines had been drawn on this long since.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Well, as the title might suggest, they would be a team of guys drafted and managed by KKF aka xxTheLebowskixx aka fish_twoplustwo or whatever aka insert troll gimmick here, aka, the guy who keeps making fun of you for taking guys with career 11 ppg averages when guys like, say, Stackhouse are available.

Sorry that hurt your feelers and you had to try the sarcastic route. You want analysis, um ok:

Bo couldn't shoot, he could barely hit the goal with his free throws, for a post he wasn't a great rebounder. I remember him being a great shot blocker, and a pretty good 1on1 and help defender, other than that he was a liability.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

god i love bo outlaw, im remember him with orlando, and penny, those were some fun teams. I remember him bringing up the ball on offense on more then one occasion. Point-Power-Forward ftw.

Along with Allan Houston gives me two of the best pure perimeter shooters in NBA history (both career 40% guys on high volume) to complement my interior power with Nance and Ewing, and the ability of Mookie and Butler to create, penetrate and pass. Like the rest of my team, he is good for a long period of time, giving my team not only a high peak, but extreme longevity and durability.

A lethal 3pt shooter, its no surprise that his peak for this league has a TS% of 55% and an amazingly high 16+ PER for a 15ppg shooter/scorer. Like Houston, he can also create off picks and while he'll never be confused with a lockdown defender, he's got a good ratio of defensive to offensive win shares, and not a horrible rating. Key to his fit for my team, his best years were when he had his best teammates, something that will obviously be going on here in this league.

It should be pretty easy to see how my team fits together. A good balance of inside-midrange-outside games, all built to perfectly complement one of the dominant big men of all time. And with one of the very best perimeter defenders on the point, tremendous inside presence, and capable wings, my team is shaping up as a very balanced, long lived, versatile team.

Team so far:

PG Mookie Blaylock
SG/SF Allan Houston
SF/SG/Point Forward Caron Butler
PF/C Larry Nance
C Patrick Ewing

Bench
SG Dell Curry
Man, this one was tough.
