It's that time of year again!

2011 ClubLakers All-NBA Challenge

Image

GENERAL INFORMATION

There will be 16 teams. Each team will be responsible for creating their own team thread, giving themselves any team name they desire. I'll do our best to choose managers based on who was first, but also on your post history, if you’ve done GM League’s before, and so on. Only those who will be fully engaged will be allowed.

The draft order will be based on a lottery format. The sign-up list will be randomized and each player on the list, in order, will then receive a number from 1 to 16. This is the order in which they will pick their draft slot. Draft slots taken by those ahead of you in the lottery cannot be stolen. We'll do this ourselves using a random generation tool online. The draft will be snake format, in which the first round goes 1-16, then the 16th GM gets the first pick in the second round.

ROSTERS

Each roster will be comprised of twelve players. Only players who played during the 2010-2011 season are available, aside from people who have retired (e.g. - Shaq). Euros who aren't currently in the NBA are not allowed and the same goes for college players (Irving, Williams, etc). Players chosen who are currently in the league are assumed to be at their current basketball skill level (even rookies). Injured players are not assumed to be at their peak or their pre-level injury; injured players are assumed to be at the level they will return to next year. This is subjective and you must understand the risk that comes with selecting an injured player when it comes time for the judges to make their decisions.

TRADES

Trades can happen at anytime. You may trade draft picks, but the number of picks exchanged must be equal to keep all rosters at twelve players. Each team will be allowed to make up to five trades. Three team trades are allowed.

COACHING AND THE PLAYOFFS
At the conclusion of the trading portion of the contest, each GM will submit a write-up as to why their team should be one of the top four teams in their conference. The judges will then pick the top four, in each conference, seed them, and a single-elimination, eight-team tournament will begin.

Remember, this isn't numbers driven fantasy basketball. You need to know the talent you are choosing and choose talents that fit together. You must have some idea of how to utilize this talent as a team and include basic strategies in your write-up.


If you've never done this, here's some info:
1.) We open up a forum for this game. You'll have your own team thread.
2.) Drafting takes time and dedication. If you don't have time, DON'T sign up.
3.) It lasts about 3 weeks to a month.


The GM's:
1.) Kobe Bryant 8
2.) Crispy
3.) The Laker Link
4.) XXIV

I want in.

I might be more available at night than anything due to jobs, but I'll be available pretty much all summer.

No. This one is simply a draft of all players.

So a trade like Derrick Rose for Kobe could go through?

Are we going to aim these teams or just build and then we get it done and vote who the best is?

I'm not sure what you're asking.

We'll have a draft order and the entire pool of NBA talent to pick from. You can trade draft positions and players (or both).

For example: Team A trades Rajon Rondo and #22 pick to Team B for Russell Westbrook and the #40 pick.

No. We draft and build and go through our season and then after a while we stop.

After drafting, trading, and building, will we sim a season of our teams or will we just evaluate our teams after we're done and vote for who wins?

Also so we are just doing players that played last season? We aren't drafting Jordan or Magic or any other HOF? Just build our teams with who played last season and only from last season?

It's all explained in the first post.

We draft, we trade. Once that's over the judges will pick their top-8 teams. From there we do write-ups explaining how we will beat our opponents. 1 will play 8, 2 will play 7, and so on.

And yes, current NBA player only.

Ok. So judges judge and then we have a playoff style system.

Ok that makes sense. I think I vaguely remember this process the last time this was done.

I would like to be part of this if possible?

I just finally created an account just for this, I have been following the forum for years though. I work on a computer all day so I wouldn't have an issue with commitment.

I do understand if I am not selected due to just creating an account finally.

Thanks

So once we have 16 GM's we can begin choosing our team name and creating our thread?

Also, will we have any staff (fellow CL members) to be a part of our team? And what about coaches?

Possibly. I'd rather do the GMC, but it's a game that requires the help of multiple CL members. I'm not sure I can find that kind of support.

I probably don't have the time available to play, but I'd be willing to judge if you need someone to do that.
