PDA

View Full Version : All right, here's what's happening tomorrow (ABA League)

JayRedd is cancelling the scheduled 6:30AM draft on the nba.com site for tomorrow.

Instead, we are having the draft here on PD starting at 12Noon.

In the meantime, the draft is still open with the 24 hour clock to see if we can squeeze a few more picks in over night. Once noon hits, we switch to a 10 minute clock.

There will be 10 minutes per pick, and if you are not here, you either need to send me a list via PM or I will pick for you (I'll do my best, and I know it's not the same as if you yourself got to do it, but those are the breaks). Hopefully this thing will be over within a couple hours after that.

Once it's finished, we'll figure out how to set up the rosters as they should be, and go from there.

So if you can't make it, first POST HERE TO LET US KNOW.

Second, SEND ME A PM WITH AS MANY PLAYERS AS YOU CAN THAT YOU WANT.

If you have any questions/concerns, post them here. I'm not sure there's a lot that can change at this point, but that doesn't mean we can't talk.

At 12, I'll make a post on the thread we've been making our picks in thus far to announce we're firing it back up. We will be strict on time limits; this draft needs to finish up.

*edit* I have a list that is 21 players short of covering the entire rest of the draft, so during the last round I may need suggestions for making picks for others; FYI.

:bump:

I've edited in the fact that the draft is still going tonight with the 24 hour clock (which will switch at 12Noon to 10 minutes).

I definitely won't be able to make it tomorrow. I'll make as large a contingency list as I can, but there's no way in hell I can make one big enough to cover 9 more rounds.

I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to participate in the draft at noon due to prior commitments. I'll forward my player list sometime in the morning.

I feel like I missed something, however. Does the auto-selection option from the pre-ranked list not work? :confused:

Doesn't appear to exist unless there's a scheduled draft.

After working all night again, I can most certainly not make it at that time, I will only have my BB and with that I can not handle drafting.

Pick whatever you want for me as I also have no time to make a list and even if I did, I would end up wit 5 players in 1 position and none in the other.

Well, hopefully I can be in the draft for 1.5 hours, so I hope that people choose fast and that when time is then time is really up, so I can atleast choose as many players as possible myself.

I think I will send a list of players before I leave.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

Ok, thanks Hicks, Frank and Jay.

If you need any help during the draft, let me know. I'll be around here anyway to make my picks...

I'll leave approximately 6 hours after the 10 minute clock has started. There are still 210 picks left, so, starting at noon, the draft will maximally still last 2100 minutes or 35 hours. Hopefully (and probably) it will be done a lot earlier though.

I'll make a list if necessary.

Let's hope not. Hopefully, the people that are here will not need a full 10 minutes to make a selection. Please try to be somewhat vigilant of when you are coming up and which players are gone, so that people like Mourning can get most of their picks done.

I am actually running out for a few hours. I'm hoping to be back by noon, but may run a little late. Hicks, I'm sending you a list that should cover two or three rounds in case I'm not back until 1 or so.

Thanks for the help with this everyone.

Same here should be back before noon but sending you my list just in case.

Hicks, I'm making arrangements for SuperReggie to either pick for me or set up my account to do an auto-selection. I'm hoping to be back in time for the middle/late rounds to finish up my selections. So you don't need to worry about picking for me from a list.
