So that you'll know, this is how I made the selections.

1. I wrote everyones name on a small slip of paper, mixed them up several times & then, without looking, one by one, selected the names. Once all the names had been drawn I listed them on a separate sheet of paper in the order I had pulled them.

2. I then wrote the numbers 1 thru 24 on back of those same small slips of paper. I again mixed them up, several times & then, without looking, one by one, selected the numbers. The first number I picked went to the first name on the list. The 2nd number went to the 2nd player on the list. I think you get the idea,

The following is the draft order for all odd number rounds. That would be rounds 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11

The order will be reversed for all even number rounds. That would be 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12.

Basicly if you pick first in round 1 you'll get the last pick in round 2.

If you pick last in round 1 you'll also have the first pick in round 2.

By keeping the draft the same all the way thru & not re-shuffling the order I hope that people will have a clearer idea just exactly when they will be drafting & the process will not get bogged down. HINT HINT

Well, heres the list:

1. Bulldog
2. Avoidingtheclowns
3. Ajbry
4. Diamond Dave
5. Shade
6. Diamond Dave 00
7. Bellisimo
8. Dr. Badd
9. Mal
10. Bball
11. Gryon
12. Able
13. bnd45
14. Docpaul
15. Boston Connection
16. Magic Rat
17. Indy
18. Burnzone
19. Jose Slaughter
20. Rcarey
21. Skaut Ech
22. rm 1369
23. Jay Redd
24. Boombaby 33

Woo, #5! Now I can pick an elite franchise player who will summarily get horribly injured at the end of the season! Again! :yay:

Alrighty...first trade is up on the table. I'm willing to part with the 20th pick for a 1-5 pick. 20 is more than any of those numbers. It's a great deal. I'll throw in cash considerations in the form of PM's.

Shade, I hear Greg Oden is a sleeper pick. You should draft him right away!

I just read this! Awesome! First time in my life I'm picking first in any fantasy league.

I keep hearing great things about this Diener kid. Maybe I'll take him first.

Or maybe I'll draft a coach instead of a player. I'm not sure I can trust a player as the face of my franchise, my fanbase is interested in hustle and fundamentals, not hip-hop culture.

Oh, screw it. Barring an injury between now and the draft, I'm taking LeBron.

Mark me down for that unless some news comes out that LBJ's been hurt, this way I can wake up late on Friday and won't hold up the draft.

What the hell, we could start the Draft today with no timer and see how it goes....Let the timer start on Friday.

Who wants to get a head start on the draft?

Seems like we got the #1 pick already done..
