    Default 1st KL Draft

    Ok. This might be rather early, but I like to have this done as early as possible, so I can pencil it in. So, when could we have the draft for our league?

    Regards,

    Whenever the owners vote to have it once we get the league started up. I'm hoping the site's up by next week - the current message indicates it will be. If it takes too long I'll send an e-mail out and ask owners to either PM or e-mail me back with their preferences.

    The NBA season starts Oct 28 so the choices will be Oct. 11, 18 or 25, a Saturday morning, probably 9 a.m. US Eastern.

    The second thing we'll have to decide is whether to have it on the site or here. I was shocked how well it went just having it here last year - may be a legit option.

    As ussal, I'm free any saturday that works for anyone else. I don't know if it would cause any confusion with keeping track of players, but I think it would be nice to hold the draft here, simply because it makes it easier to chat with everyone between picks.
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    A Saturday morning here on PD is fine with me, as well.

    I agree that last year went well, and the ability to chat on here between picks, as Scott mentioned, is also nice.

    The only negative I can see is you can't make trades while the draft is going on. Didn't seem to bother anyone though. I'll do a poll when we get a little closer.

    Any of those three should be fine, and I think having it here works well.

    As for trades, wouldn't it just take both parties and the commish to get it done? PMs as needed?

    Nope - I'm not gonna mess with drafting for 4-5 people like I usually do AND try to keep track of trades. Folks can wait until the draft is over and all the rosters are loaded.

    I guess it will be like the real NBA then with people making picks for others to set up a agreed-to-in-principle trade.

    Yeah - they can plug a trade in as soon as I get the rosters entered. I usually have enough trouble just keeping up with picks to try to keep track of trades while things are in progress.

    I'm still deciding who to take. I feel like I'm supposed to take Mayo, but I'm not 100% yet.

    I hate you people with your 8 a.m. draft times. At least there will be college football to keep me awake.

    Ah. I got caught up in people saying 8AM towards the end here, and forgot you actually said 9 in the first place.

    We started it at 8 last year and almost from the moment we began I was asking myself, "Why'd we start so early?" In past years we started at 9 which makes sense. I'm not opposed to starting at pretty much any time as long as we remember that we have owners from Australia to California. Of course when you think about it, it may not matter when we start - somebody's gonna be short of sleep somewhere. I suppose we might as well cater to the majority which means US.
