I hadn't been keeping up with the thread as much as the beginning because it definitley started to taper off. We are two different people. If you guys want to continue believing that we were the same person then fine. I'm still not sure what the point of coming up with two screen names and posting in this thread would be but whatever.

He didn't show up or log into the site for like over a week and we waited days for him to pick. It had zero to do with his actual picks.

Ahhh, I see. Fair enough I suppose. He said that everyone was pissed that he drafted Roy Tarpley and Reggie Lewis and voted him out. I remember when he picked Lewis and people were saying he should take his pick back but I didn't really pay much attention after that then he said he was out.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

and Thaddeus Young is L O ****ING L

I'm sure he'll have some visionary Assani nonsense to say about it, but it's an awful pick. Truly.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

This Hodges pick seems bad, if I really wanted an undersized three point shooter, there's one guy in particular who shoots better and has tons more longevity.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Young had a decent year for a rookie, but I mean, you'd have to try hard to convince me that he's any better than a ton of other SFs.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

You'd have to try hard to convince me he's better than like 10 other undrafted players in his rookie class.

Thanks for the backup Clark. You guys do realize that this is the 34th out of 40 picks in the 7th round right? I wanted a guy who can come off the bench and hit some 3s and provide a spark. I thought Hodges fit the bill. It's not like I picked him in round 2 or 3. He might be there in round 8 still but I didn't have a pick in mind that would be there now but not be there in the 8th round so I just took Hodges now. I definitley don't think he would've been there in the 9th or 10th for me.

considering he held up the draft for DAYS (and we waited) and still hasn't made an appearance, i'm pretty happy w/ the decision.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

also, hodges seems like fair value. i don't think it's a facemelter but it's solid.

the thad pick i knew about and i can see the upside, but overall think it's a reach.

Yeah I agree. If he was holding it up that bad then yeah that's fine. I figured he wouldn't be back too much because he only came to the site to the draft. I was telling him about it at lunch one day so he came on and signed up. He tells me that he still reads some of the other threads sometimes at work.

there are better players who haven't been picked who have logged more than 1500 minutes who also have more upside than this guy.

Thad's a nice player and a key contributor to Philly's nice little season, but get real.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

Craig Hodges was one of those players who's stats were surprisingly good, perhaps it's because I caught him at the tail end of his career. Anyhow, it's a pretty good guy to have coming off your bench, esp with Hakeem.

Thad - While I agree that there are a lot better picks, the kid does have more upside than many of those guys. I'm on the fence with this one..

I'm probably missing them. We'll see when/if they get drafted.

I don't need upside. I need him to do one thing. Come off the bench and hit threes. He was in the league for 8 years and had a decent little career. 8 years is long enough.

I read it as the first line being about hodges and the second line about young but I could be wrong.

Refusing to believe that two SEPARATE people can 1. Have the same word in their username and 2. Know each other in real life is strange logic imo.

+1


Seriously, I think I've been more than fair to people regarding giving them some time to pick and accomodating them.
