I'll have the divisions & conference posted shortly.

As for the draft..............

Able has mentoined we will need to do the draft here on line. I'd like to get it started as soon as possible & run it similar to what we have done in the past.

I'll post an alphabetical list on NBA players, the draft order for all 12 rounds & we'll each have 12 hours to make a selection. We've used a 24 hour draft clock in the past but I think we can manage with a 12 hour draft clock.

We've managed to get the draft completed in just under a week using this type of draft. This time we will have just over 2 weeks to finsih the draft before the season starts.......... plenty of time, so nobody should get all worked up if someone is slowing us down.

One more thing & all the long time vets already know this. I have a very detailed list that I use for drafting. I will be offering it to all the rookies to try to make the playing field a little more even.

The worse thing about fantasy sports is having an owner that gets overwhelmed & looses interest in his team. That kills a league faster than anything. The best way to fix that is to help the new guys draft the best team they can. They have a competitive team, we have a competitive league.

Thanks

12 hour per round sounds doable from my side :)
lookin' forward to this upcoming season...
always open for trades...as long as they make sense ;)

I'm pretty sure you have 12 hours total, not per round.....

I too will be busy on the 13th, but if Jose is available for picking, I can send him a list.

We're having my son's 1st birthday party that day, and I'm pretty sure, my wife would kill me if I was on the computer......

Just to clarify.

Each owner will have 12 to make each pick.

So once a pick is made the next guy has upto 12 hours to post his selection.

It sounds like it'll take forever but we've done this type draft twice & completed the entire draft in under a week. People seldom take more than a few hours to make their picks.

OK then. I remember last year being herky-jerky; sometimes you'd get 6 picks in 30 minutes, then you'd get 2 in 4 hours. But if it's expected to stretch that long, that's fine by me; I'll just chill out and wait.

due to time zone difference - i wouldn't have been able to make it to a "live draft night" so i appreciate this style :)

I'm going to be out of town all next week so I'll probably need to send in a list also........
