Let’s kick off Round 4!NBA_SOuthwest

Archie selects Z-Bo PF/SF/Hoodlum/SG

David: Love the pick! Z-Bo has been sitting in the green room playing on his phone about a round too long.
Jacko: That’s a steal at R4. I’m gonna pretend Archie took Z-Bo in round 3 and David Lee in Round 4, ok?

Bill selects Faried SF/ROY/SG/PF

Jacko: Love Faried. Kid does what he’s told, works his arse off, and might never go off for 40, you want him on your team.
David: Hate to say it, but I see James Worthy 2.0 right there.

DJ selects LaMarcus Aldridge. PF/C

Jacko: If he got some solid coaching, he could be Tim Duncan 2.0,
David: By the power of Dean Smith, I will smite thee if you Blaspheme like that in my presence.
Jacko: I’m guessing he’s playing Center? LaM/Durant/Hardin is one interesting Frontline

EJ selects Dwayne Wade SG/Cripple/PG/SF and Dwight Howard C/Wuss/KobeH8ter

Jacko: There is a commotion in the stands as Kobe is making it rain!
David: Solid, Solid picks. In a videogame world, this is one devastating pairing- heck 3 years ago these are both top 2 picks.
Jacko: Imagine Wade’s heart in Howards chest.
David: Imagine Howards heart in Wade’s chest.
Jacko: Don’t have too, he gave me my fries at the drive-though.

DJ selects the Cousins C/PF/Captain Insano

Jacko: Interesting. Another post threat. Durant/Hardin/Cousins/LaM – Hardin is not going to want to goto the bench.
David: Can he play SG? That is a HUGE frontline. Maybe Cousins hits the bench? Think I bench Cousins and maybe use him to spell LaM

Bill selects DIRK

David: A round too late. Not going to help D, but with Al and Faried, this could be a monster off the bench.
Jacko: Not gonna be happy being up 10 and Dirk comes in hot and fresh as French Bread.

Archie selects Vasquez PG

David: So Westbrook at SG? We got some ball movement now.
Jacko: Could be a disaster, could be fascinating. I wonder if Vasquez can handle that roster though. Mario Chalmers doesn’t have the easiest time in the world, but he is able to manage that team.
David: But if it works. . . Defensive shifting could be an issue but wow.

Archie selects Noah C/PF/HairBearNoah

Jacko: Interesting. Noah/Z-Bo on the inside with Lee rotating? If Melo can’t drop 30 he needs to quit.
David: Some serious rebounders here.

Bill selects Paul Pierce SF

David: Whoa! Is this a team or the 00s hall of fame all-decade class?
Jacko: How did we forget this guy? Kobe,CP3,PP? On the same team? If they don’t get hurt, this team could roll.

DJ select Stephen Curry SG/Gunner/PG

David: Fascinating pick. In 6 picks, DJ has 3 guys that can drop 40 on you without sweating. Can you play Parker and Curry together?
Jacko: Who cares? Run Cousins till he drops, then toss LaMarcus in there and run baby run.

EJ selects Tyson Chandler C/PF

David: What? 2 rounds too late? Holy sheepdip! Now EJ has Howard and Tyson, plus Duncan?
Jacko: If he could draft Howard a heart in the next round, this team may be unstoppable!

This ends Round 6

Team BOOM
Chandler/Duncan/LeBron/Wade/Irving
6M Howard

David: A stunning team. Just stunning. Even if Howard no shows, this starting 5 is just crippling.
Jacko: Not a fan of Irving, but this team is scary. Lebron has no issues having to play PF now.

Team DJ
Cousins/AL/Faried/Kobe/CP3
6M Curry

David: Can we get Kobe at SF for a bit? If Cousins plays like COUSINS, this team could drop 150 on you.
Jacko: I like this team better if Faired was coming off the bench.

Team Bill
Al/Dirk/PP/Kobe/CP3
6M Faried

Jacko: Faried better not get comfy in the warmups. Talk about an energy guy! If Dirk goes cold, or Al forgets to show up, they could easily slide up and down.
David: Real feast or famine team.

Team Archie
Noah/Z-Bo/Melo/West/Vasquez
6M: Lee

Jacko: I like the concept, It all comes down to Westbrook.
David: Does make me wonder if that was a missed pick, Kevin Love or Chandler was out there, as was Howard.

Comeback Friday for the end of the draft.
