If I limit it to players ive actually seen the primes of....
29 Chris Bosh 11 11 0
35 Carmelo Anthony 10 1
9 Karl Malone 14 14 0
All come under consideration. As any long time poster knows I didnt **** with Chris Bosh as far back as 2005 so I wouldnt mind swapping him for some of those names. Mcdyess if healthy is gonna get me about the same talent.
I feel like I can justify Derrick Coleman, Ron Artest, and Jokic in some of those spots too. Obviously the big red flag is Karl but....people were mad when I said id take Dirk over Karl Malone in like 2006 too. Its not inconceivable that Jocic would be more useful in 2019. Hes not who id remove first when we have 50s guys to contend with....but....Karl vs my pick of those 1 all star guys?
I mean...if I could keep Derrick Coleman healthy...
The league is kinda going towards that more than towards Karl Malone isnt it?
Not to say Karl wouldnt adjust and still be great. He would. But given a health guarantee...and knowing Karl Malone is a dirty piece of shit on top of his other issues?
I think....id put Coleman in that draft over him.
I get why you would take issue with it....but its my draft. Im not looking for him to be in it when ive got other superstar 4 options.
Artest vs Melo is obviously a defensive thing. But its not a lock I take Artest. Id have to talk it over with someone at least....
