Sigh ... no one wants to see someone getting skipped in the first round of a gigantic draft. :-{

Especially since there really is no urgency to get this thing done by a particular point. Obviously, I'd like this thing to move along quickly but I'd rather not skip anyone so soon. In the later rounds it won't matter nearly as much.

Skip: Can you confirm that you PM'ed sabonis to let him know that it is his turn to pick?

I sent one out to him yesterday early in the afternoon. ;-7

I know he's a frequent visitor over at Real GM but he's got his messages turned off. :*)

Go ahead Jackie. All this means to me is his penalty is a drop in the draft order. (Hopefully it doesn't happen) but if he still hasn't picked by the time my pick rolls around, I'll either replace him or at the very least make the pick myself.

First mini-surprise of the draft in Brook Lopez. No doubt he's maybe the best young big but there were quite a few more proven guys you passed over. O:-)

Damn jackie, that's who I was targeting - figured there was a shot he would still be there when it got to me at 18.

So, who's going to fall to me now, hmmmmmm...

I think Brook went a little too soon. This early in the first round I'd be giving major emphasis on whoever I thought had the best chance of being the centerpiece on a championship contending team (with still some emphasis as to how long they might continue to be able to do that), and there are still several players on the board that I'd rate higher in that area than Lopez. I mean yes he's young and quite good and a C, but the best player on a championship team? Not sold.

That said, when KalElen mentioned that Dwight might be the only C taken in the first round, my first thought was that there was no way Brook Lopez doesn't go 1st round.
