Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

Agree with the pippen pick. I debated between Dirk and Ewing, but Pippen was right behind them.

I wouldn't have made it, but I don't mind the Nash pick too much.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

And "The Small Forward" is Pippen, not Dominique. Taking Nique over Pippen is bizarre.

We'll be playing zone for his 35 minutes/game.

Hey, mmmbtone, you know this pick from the player at age 24, so his age relative to Kidd right now doesn't matter.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

He's taking the "draft all late peaks" strategy to own the league from year 5-10 when all our pathetic early peak teams start declining in year 4.

You know that means Kidd starts at 24 too, right?

Of the picks so far:

TD too low.
CP3 a little high.
KM low.
Isiah high.
Dirk high.
Ewing low.
Drexler wtf.
Nique too high.
Pippen low.

That's what I'm saying.

Ok, I see your point now.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

Gary Payton is an incredibly good pick. 9 straight years of 19.6+ PER ball along with being "the glove." He's significantly better than Jason Kidd.
he also happens to be better then Isiah Thomas. GP is another guy who likely should've gone a few picks ago.

I had Payton ahead of Kidd and Thomas (blasphemy?)
not at all, i did too

GP too low to me to. It was either him or Howard at 17 for me.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

The problem with taking a swing player this early is there are so many good ones imo. This is pretty obvious and shouldn't change things I hope. Other than MJ and Bird if you consider him a 3, I would really have to make a stretch to pick a 2/3. Probally KB/LBJ too, but after that.....idk.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion Thread

Is it safe to assume that a player who ran the triangle (i.e. Pippen) is capable of playing in most any offense?
