Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Well since I'd be sending you a list of two guys and since you pick before me early in the 8th round, it does matter actually. Not that I don't trust you, but yeah I'd rather send it to someone without a pick before my next two.

I've been waiting for Mo Williams to go for the last 3 rounds now. So underrated.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I like Wayman, I have been thinking about him for a bit, and almost took him instead of Gatling. The other half of the best NBA Jam team! I decided against him b/c of his D, but with the team that JoA has, that's less of a worry than for the team I took over. Good pick.

If someone takes my facemelter, I'm going to be sad.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Take it from someone who watches Mo Williams play all the time, he is not very good. He is basically an undersized SG playing PG because he's not big enough to be a SG.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

The number of original NBA Jam players undrafted is drastically shrinking. I might have to take the most undraftable player on the game in the 10th round if he's the only one left.

Yeah, for my team as 7th(?) man, he's a great fit, and doesn't have proven longevity issues of other guys who also would've fit my team needs (bench offense at PG, with ability to hit the 3). 56.6% TS% is no joke in the bench chucker role, esp since he's a pretty good assist guy too.

I'm guessing it's someone stupid and way off the beaten path so he can stroke himself some more

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

there is 1 PG available in particular that brings INCREDIBLE value and i'm flatout perplexed he's available. I may have to snatch him up with my next pick even though I'm inundated with small guys.

there's maybe 3 guys who are miles ahead in talent, but prob wont be drafted due to injuries . i agree the PG should go somewhat soon though, i just didnt want to deal with having try to justify another injury (mcdyess is enough)

Bobbo, PM me please since there's obviously no way I can take a 3rd PG.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

if it's who I think it is calling him the clear best talent available is a bit much, and I'm assuming he means best PG talent available. Def not BPA not by a long shot

I happen to think there are an assload of decent to solid PGs available who will be fine for the 15mpg they get.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Mo Williams - I had him in my top 3 as well, with the other two having distinct positives and negatives. Perhaps I'm missing some others, but I really think he was one of if not the best PGs available when you factor in everything. I think it's a nice solid pick to go with Mookie and they represent a great dichotomy.

I thought about taking a PG, but pretty much cam the KC's conclusion that there is a lot of depth at that position when you factor in playing limited minutes.

Wayman Tisdale - This is actually a pretty spectacular pick when you factor in JOA's team. He's got a monster defensive front line in McKey/Green/Robinson, and Wayman is such a good scorer with a variety of moves. Like Clark's pick, it seems like a great pairing.

Nene is still better than both of them though
