Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion - Let's Get'er Done

Agree with the pippen pick. I debated between Dirk and Ewing, but Pippen was right behind them.
05-12-2008 , 10:52 PM
I wouldn't have made it, but I don't mind the Nash pick too much.
05-12-2008 , 10:52 PM
BTW, can we now talk about how Payton > Kidd?
05-12-2008 , 10:52 PM
And "The Small Forward" is Pippen, not Dominique. Taking Nique over Pippen is bizarre.

In a league like this, what's Nash's stat line going to be, 15 assists a game, 45 points a game by the guy he ends up guarding?
We'll be playing zone for his 35 minutes/game.

BTW, now is when the fun really starts.

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

this really isnt even close. isiah versus payton is the better debate. gp was unbelievable.

kidd isn't very good. i think i'd even rather have iverson.

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.
05-12-2008 , 10:58 PM
That's what I'm saying.

Ok, I see your point now.
05-12-2008 , 10:58 PM
seriously I think Payton is the best value pick after the rather obvious top 10ers. assfags
05-12-2008 , 10:58 PM
lol Pippen high.
05-12-2008 , 10:59 PM
Nash at 24: 8pp, 5,5 assist 36%FG.

Any thoughts on Pip there?
Considering he should've gone roughly 5 to 10 picks ago, you got the steal of the draft. nicely done.

Quote:
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

+1 for this, too.
05-12-2008 , 11:04 PM
GP too low to me to. It was either him or Howard at 17 for me.
05-12-2008 , 11:05 PM
Isiah is still the worst pick of this draft
05-12-2008 , 11:05 PM
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.
05-12-2008 , 11:06 PM
Dudd and NPP are both on, sweet, 2 more picks before bedtime, yay
05-12-2008 , 11:10 PM
Is it safe to assume that a player who ran the triangle (i.e. Pippen) is capable of playing in most any offense?
