All-Time NBA Draft League: Seeding SET! MATCHES SET!

All-Time NBA Draft League: Seeding SET! MATCHES SET!

Postby therealdeal on Tue Jun 10, 2014 11:25 am

Over the next few weeks I'll need eight volunteers to enter what is basically a fantasy draft of every player that has been in the NBA thus far. It'll be a snake draft the order of which will be randomly decided with this random number generator.

The teams will consist of 12 players, 2 for each position (PG, SG, SF, PF, C) and 2 extra. Tweeners can be debated, for instance if you wanted to slide LeBron to PF to make room for Scottie Pippen or James Worthy or Elgin Baylor... we could let that slide.

At the end of the draft we have an awesome discussion about which teams ended up the best! There's also a site called whatifsports.com that we can enter the teams into and see which teams end up winning in head-to-head play!

Real, you might consider an announcement post in LD directing folks here. Some might not see this otherwise.

Will we be drafting on the basis of a player's entire career or are we choosing them based on a particular season; for instance 2000 Shaq, or 2006 Kobe?

I'm thinking we have to go year to year. It's the only way to keep things fair for the younger guys.

So far we've got:
1. laakers
2. TIME
3. John3:16
4. Battle Tested
5. unpossibl1
6. Kobe Bryant 8
7. MusixFinest

I think it'll be more fun if we have more teams so we'll wait and hope that over the next couple days we can pick up 3 more guys!

I would like to participate if the draft falls on a weekday? I tend to not be around CL on weekends.

I see people complaining about the potential draft day. My idea was to do it on CL itself.

It's the off-season, we're in no rush. I'll simply say "So-and-so you're up, what's your pick?" and that person will make the pick when they come around in time to make it. This could take a few days or a week or something to complete in total, but I figure that's a hell of a lot easier than trying to set up an off-site draft of players.

Not to mention there's no pressure for people to show up at certain time in a certain place. Here's an example of what I'm saying:

Day One- 9:00 AM
therealdeal- "TIME your pick is up! You have 9 hours to make the pick or you're autodrafted!"


10:40 AM
TIME- "I pick Michael Jordan!"

11:30 AM
therealdeal- "Excellent! TIME has selected Michael Jodan, now it's unpossibl1's turn! You have 9 hours to make the pick!"

4:30 PM
unpossibl1- "I pick Kareem Abdul-Jabbar!"

6:30 PM
therealdeal- "Great!"

Etc. etc. Does that make sense?
