Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Round 7, Pick 251: Run JMC selects Jeff Foster






To further solidify my bench I took one of today's most underrated players. Foster is an absolute workhorse who makes the most of his minutes. In limited action, Foster has put up 7 RPG and played stellar D with a career DRtg of 100. He's not a scorer but can finish around the rim which is fine given my wing scorers. He should be a solid big off the bench who will fill that role well. I was kind of surprised to find out he was 6-11 so that's a plus as well.

Team so far:
PG: Jason Kidd
SG: Mitch Richmond
SF: Corey Maggette
PF: Al Horford
C: Ralph Sampson

SG/SF: Bonzi Wells
PF/C: Jeff Foster

FaDi on the clock...

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

That SI article on TH was great, why the hell do they suck so bad now? They need more of this ****, players talking about the game in detail, and about what they are good at, I could have read five more pages about that ****.

Good pick, but he's also gonna be your starting C pretty soon so you may need more backups.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Does anyone else think Foster and Durr look a lot a like?

I really thought Foster would slip to me, as well, jesus.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Jeez I had three guys in mind 20 picks ago, and they are all still available. I have no idea which one to pick after Fadi.

Black or White? Offense or Defense?

jesus dude spot on. Wonder if he has the same weird voice, too.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Yeah, he is the BEST offensive rebounder literally ever.

I would prefer him on a team with Gilbert or Iverson; just imagine the ownage of all the missed shots pairing Foster w/ Deke or Wallace or whatnot. Just sick.

Does anyone else realize just how damn good Foster is? He's a better pick then all of the last round of bigmen for sure (maybe not Tyrone Hill) and is so deceptively good.,..

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Hate the Hunter pick. I know he's a "winner", but his defense is good (but not great) and there are better PG defenders that can actually do stuff on the offensive end too. (Enjoy his sub .500 TS!)

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I'm doing my writeup now, shouldn't take too long.

Bobbo knows my pick, and I've PM'd it to Capone so he can do his writeup.

I have a few guys in mind. If Seafood and or capone0 take either obviously it'll make my decision making process either but I won't take that long either way.
