I've told everyone to PM him when their writeup isn't included in the thread multiple times and they have told me that they have PMed him.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

well then relax because if he ain't posting them when he's PM'd he ain't listening to your "hey clark pwweeeze" post every other page.

It'd be a million times easier if people just did write ups before they posted. It's one thing to ask Clark/MEb to help out here and there, but they didn't sign up for late write ups ***** duty.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

btw, just giving fair warning about a bazillion picks early, that if it gets to my pick this weekend, I won't be able to pick until some point sunday. See warning, so don't skip my ass if it somehow goes through 50 picks before sunday.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Round 7 Pick 270

ISAIAH RIDER





Yes - I picked the headcase. A pretty good headcase at that. I was in need of a solid wingman off the bench - and he was the most talented one available (by a long shot imo).

He was known for his Dunk Contests and was the one who originated the between-the-legs-dunk (which was perfected by VC and J-Rich respectively)...but this man was a pretty good scorer as well! With a career 17 ppg (topping off at 20.4 ppg), 4rbg and a TS% of .526 and a career PER of 15...he will be an excellent addition to my bench as he has shown he can be pretty efficient.!

Roster:
PG Chris Paul
SG RIP
SF Terry Cummings
PF Vin Baker
C Theo Ratliff

Bench:
SF Chuck Person
SG JR Rider


(click on the name at the top for some JR Highlights)


Alex is on the clock....

he and xorb were sharing bigcat's team. Now only xorb is going to own bigcat's, and D10 has HSP's.

good pick. Very good chance I took him if he fell to me even though I don't really need another 2.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I kinda feel bad for JR because he was the man from day 1 in Minny when he wasn't really good enough to be.

Most message boards allow users to edit their own posts. This one doesn't. This board only allows mods to edit posts after a few minutes. They asked to be mods- it wasn't forced upon them.

This is absolutely fine. While I would prefer people to just PM me(or someone else who is on a lot) a list of their wanted picks, I will never allow a person to be skipped if they have given advanced warning that they'll be away(and its a reasonable time frame that they're away for).

I was starting to look at Rider recently....not a bad pick...lots of upside for sure.

KC, I disagree with you. JR definitely had enough skill to be "the man" in Minnesota. This isn't a Tom Googliotta or Zach Randolph type of guy who scores a ton on very bad efficiency on bad teams. JR's TS% in his first three years was 53.3%, 54.8%, and 55.0%.

I'm actually very surprised that SD posted his career TS%(which is greatly brought down by his later years) instead of focusing on the potential upside of Rider actually continuing his early career numbers.

Rider's problems were mental, not physical imo.
