    Default Official Keeper League Draft Thread

    Hey Everyone,

    I figure we might as well go ahead and get things started just in case anyone's around - any picks we take care of tonight will get us finished quicker tomorrow. Just make your picks in this thread.

    One caution - I know in the past we've been able to finish this draft in between 2 and 3 hours. I don't expect it to be that quick this year. Every pick will have to be made manually - no contingency lists that a computer can instantaneously use. If we're lucky we might get done in 5. My guess is it'll take closer to 7 or 8.

    Draft rules are simple - you can pick anyone not on the protected list I sent out last week. I'd recommend someone in the NBA - picking Jessica Alba might seem like a good idea but it's not that sort of fantasy league. Starting at 8 a.m. tomorrow there will be a 15 minute clock to select, time beginning when the previous owner picks. Up to that time, there's no clock.

    And finally, I have received just one list from owners who can't be here tomorrow - and it was a very good list with very specific instructions. If you need me to draft for you, please get those to me before 8 AM tomorrow.

    I'm going to also open a draft discussion thread. I don't really care if you chat in this thread but if something important comes up - you make a trade (yes, with the start of the draft trading season is back) or someone drafts a player on the protected list - please post it on that discussion thread so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle.

    The draft order is listed below - have fun.

    There's a small chance I'll be a little late to the draft, so to let the ball roll:

    With the 1st pick in the 2007 Keeper League Draft, the New Castle Trojans select.....

    Kevin Durant

    It was a no-brainer to me. Would have picked Durant if he were available, offcourse. But, for the long term I'm taking a gamble on Oden.

    Either way one good player won't fix my team, so I'm not even THAT down on having him do nothing on my roster... I AM much more worried about some other guys that play important roles on my team (Villanueva, David Lee, Speedy Claxton, Etan Thomas and Shaun Livingston) and that I want to make decisions on keeping or dealing this season.

    I'm here for the longrun .

    Regards,

    We now have a clock and Dr. Badd is on it - I'm figuring on an average of 7-8 minutes/pick which calculates out to (hmmm - 60 picks which is convenient) about 7-8 hours to finish - minus half an hour or so for what's done already.

    The weird thing is Dr. Badd was logged on, just not active in the thread. Maybe he thought since he was picking 6th he had bit of a cushion before joining the thread.

    Dunno - I checked my PM's & e-mails just to make sure I'm not picking for him - if I am I don't have any message saying so.

    You're up Chill - just to be clear, if someone misses, we don't skip him entirely - he can jump in whenever. If two people happen to pick the same player at the same time it'll just be whose post appears first.
