in addition to discussion, each player should rank the top 5 teams in their opinion.

It this point, I would say it's the latter, although it's still subject to change until the draft actually begins.


Thanks for the info ;-D

Rizzo wrote:About the team building aspect of this draft....

If a team decides to draft a team around a Run N' Gun type of offense, would that penalize them? I would hope people wouldn't look at the roster and say, "You only have one big man who doesn't necessarily play in the post, not a good way to build a team." I'm just thinking that people when analyzing these squads should take team strategy into account.


I agree that we should be analysing team building with respect to team strategy, but we should also analyse team stragey as well. So for example, a manager might get torched because of the Run N' Gun system that he built his squad around, but he should also be praised for the selection of players.

nebgib5 said he's got a bunch of PMs out to fill the thing -- i think it's worth waiting to start a few extra days if it means that nobody has more than one team. we'll make sure everyone knows when we are set to go

and please vote in the poll regarding allowing trades of draft picks

This baby is full. :-D

Draft will start January 4th at noon EST. For the beginning of the draft there will be a 12 hour time limit, so don't say you weren't warned. }:-)

I like the idea of ranking the top 5 teams.

For me, I would like to discuss just about every aspect of the team. From are they a half court team or run and gun team to do they have an inside/outside game. Obviously a guy who might be suspended for a season because of a brawl with fans but who is a dominant player won't be drafted solely based on talent. Other aspects should be taken into account. The Spurs won those championships with steady players not with guys like that. But then again if you feel you have someone on your team that you think can keep him in line, then you might not mind drafting the guy. Kinda like Jordon keeping Rodman in line.

right on, just like you cant draft a team of scorers as there's only one ball on the court (as far as i know), you probably want some guys grabbing rebounds and playing defence as well.
