Draft post is here:




Players drafted so far starts here:



Players can be drafted to any position listed in the bball ref stats so check that out like this: Jordan can be SG or SF. So do a search of the drafted players list, someone may have taken your player you expected to use as PF but have them at C. We don't want to be too stringent but try to keep some form to this.

Rules:

  • Pick a team to draft your all time best/favourite rosters
  • Time allowed per pick is 18 hours or your turn will be auto-skipped
  • Previous selector will tag the next pick who is up and the time will start
  • More below so please read and be up to speed!

Previous Draft Rules-

1. Draft-
The objective here is to draft the greatest basketball team possible from a pool of every professional basketball player who has played in the NBA/ABA. This will be a TWELVE round snake draft, with randomized draft order prior to the beginning of the draft (using random.org)...

2. Roster- Every team roster will include the following TWELVE positions to be drafted. A player can be drafted at any position that shows up that they played at that position on basketball reference
-
PG-
PG-
SG-
SG-
G-
SF-
SF-
PF-
PF-
F/C-
C-
C-

3. Drafting Rules- To ensure the draft moves along, I will impose a strict eighteen hour draft clock for every pick. If you fail to make your pick during the twelve hour window, your team will be skipped. If your team is skipped three times in the draft, you either forfeit your spot or someone who missed out might take over as GM. If you are skipped, you may make your pick at any moment after your draft window is expired, however, you run the risk of the next team drafting a player that you wished to draft.

Also, if you know you are going to be gone for your next pick and do not want to be skipped, you may send a proxy list of players you would like to draft to me, via pm. Also, because sending a proxy list will speed up the draft process, the other team owners and I as commissioner will appreciate it.

4. Drafting Formating and Etiquette- Please format all picks in the following way:

["round number"."pick number"] "Team Name" Select- "Player Name", "Player Position"

EXAMPLE- [1.1] San Antonio Spurs Select- Michael Jordan, SG

Also, members are required to send a pm to the next team to notify them that it is their turn. When you do send a pm, please say so under your draft pick. If for whatever reason you cannot format or pm next, please indicate that and I will do so ASAP, but please, do not abuse it...

5. Maintaining Rosters- I will maintain a draft sheet in next post, to list all draft choices by pick and also by position. I ask that all of you however maintain your current roster on your own edited post where you first selected your team, in order for everybody to be able to look over all teams individually. Other rules about maintaining the rosters will be available on this separate thread.

6. Draft Completion- Once the draft is complete and all teams have a full roster, teams will be randomized (using random.org) to see your opponent, and again for each round after. Games will be best of 7 and run through a game simulator software eg whatifsports.com.

Round 1 : 1 v 16, 2 v 15 etc etc - random for home court
Round 2: 1 v 8, 2 v 7 etc - random for home court
Round 3 : 1 v 4, 2 v 3 - random for home court
Finals : 1 v 2 - random for home court or best win/loss record so far? TBC

Happy for this to be ignored but it occurred to me after spending way too much time picking my team in the second draft only to watch my Michael Jordan-led opponent come back from 3-0 down to beat my team 4-3 that the teams picking first and second in the draft will ALWAYS pick MJ and LeBron and the random generator will always pick one of those two teams to win unless the balance of the teams are populated by D-League players. That being the case I was wondering if we could exclude both GOATs or at least have some healthy debate about it. Please ignore if either of my teams get to pick first.

I got Lebron with the 10th pick in the 1st draft, such as the drafting went lol - Having said that, I ended up having the winning team

I'm not sure it's the game simulator software bias or not
