Looks like we're going to do the draft here on PD.
Not all the votes are in but the last time I checked it was 8-0 in favor of having the draft here with a 24 hour draft clock.
This will be the first time I have been a part of this type of draft so I'm a little out of my element. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear 'em.
I posted an NBA player list in another thread. I assume its complete since I copied it from NBA.com. I'll update the list prior to the draft starting.
As far as the selection order goes I'd like to set it up similar to what we've done on Sports.ws in the past.
The odd numbered rounds are random & the even numbered rounds that follow them are in reverse order.
An example of that would be...... if you have the 1st pick in the draft, then you pick last in the 2nd round. If you have the last pick of the 1st round, you also have the 1st pick in the 2nd.
Round 1 is random, round 2 is the reverse of round 1
Round 3 is random, round 4 is the reverse of round 3
As far as the draft clock goes........... You'll have 24 hours from the time the person ahead of you post his selection to make your choice.
Nobody will come close to taking that long to make a pick, so don't panic.
As for the scoring in the league, we'll be using the scoring that we've always used on Sports.ws, However its my understanding that the NBA.com site only counts the points the "starters" score.
So, how many "starters" should we have?
Currently I have it set at 3 guards, 3 forwards & 2 centers.
I've thought about changing it to 4, 4 & 2. Anyone have any thoughts one way or the other on this?
