It's the off-season and some people work. I like the 9 hour time limit.

We can talk about picks in between and give each other grief too.

BTW, solid pick John3:16


Haha well that is part of it, I have the summer of (teacher). But really I was just hoping to make picks before leaving tomorrow morning. I'm assuming it will pick up this evening but I'll send in my top 10 just in case.


I gotcha. What do you teach?

:jam2:

Kinda got myself in a hole when I said I wouldn't draft Jordan. :man10:


I can make a strong case for drafting 5-6 guys #1 just depending on how you want to build your team, and Wilt is one of those 5-6 guys that deserve consideration for a top pick.

8th Grade US History, it's a blast. And tough to go wrong with Wilt's '62 season. If we are taking the strength of the competition into account that might lower his value slightly, but either way just a monster of a year.

^ US History, that's great! 8th grade seems like a good age to teach because the kids are really coming into their own and figuring out what they like and dislike.

John, I don't think any true NBA fan could pick Jordan with how this league is set up. You made a right choice.

If he is still on the board by the 4th pick, it's likely he won't be there for the 5th pick. :naughty1:

Understandable. I may take him 3rd, but there's a better MJ out there!

In terms of team building there is certainly a good case to be made for a better MJ.

Definitely. This is a draft where you can build the ultimate team. The ultimate team player would help.

By the way, I respect that you are considering drafting Mark Jackson with your first pick.

Sorry guys, been busy working and hanging with friends on my birthday. :D

Michael Jordan! I don't think I've ever owned MJ in anything ever... Woo! Almost wish he was picked so I could get Kobe without any second thoughts... Pressure of having a high draft pick :\

Happy Birthday to laakers! He gets Jordan with the #2 pick! (We'll get a clarification on what year in a moment)

Next up: Kobe Bryant 8!

Ok, everything worked out well for me. I get my top pick from the #4 spot.

I select the Captain.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar. 1971 - Lew Alcindor version.

Yeah that's a great choice. Personally I always start building inside and those first and third picks were right where I'd go. Can't do wrong with Jordan at #2 though.

What is going to happen if someone misses their draft time? Will that person get a player randomly assigned, miss a turn, or just take their turn when they re-appear? Or are their other options?

They get Smush Parker, if Time hasn't drafted him already.
