    Default Alternate PD Draft Thread Idea

    Not to compete with Jose's threads, which I love, but I think it would be cool to do a draft where we each pick a team and make their pick for them.

    Essentially one poster would be assigned as GM of a team, then they could do a little research if they like and tell us who they'd pick.

    We could start after the lottery on the 20th. If you're interested, reply or PM me with the team you'd like to GM.

    ATL - Rommie
    CHA - DrFife
    CHI (2)- Count55
    CLE - UncleReg
    DAL - binarysolo
    DET - Wetbob
    GS - Hibbert Laugh
    IND - Duke Dynamite
    LAC - MillerTime
    LAL - Peskoe97
    MEM (2)- Jose Slaughter
    MIL - CableKC
    MIN (3)- Mellifluous
    NJ - PostArtestEra
    NO -iPacer
    NY - TroyMurphy3
    OKC (2)- BRushwithdeath
    PHI -LoneGranger33
    PHO - avoidingtheclowns
    POR - Pwee31
    SAC (2)- Major Cold
    TOR - dcpacersfan
    UTAH - pacergod2
    WAS - Mourning

    Some teams are not listed because they don't have a 1st round pick. Teams with multiple picks are noted.

    First come, first serve. Though maybe I should reserve certain teams for certain posters who are fans of that team. I'm open to ideas.

    mel's idea, I think mel should get us.

    We did this on RealGM last year, but we just had posters sign up, and we did a random draw for team assignments.

    I'd be cool with that, too.

    However, if we're picking...I'll take Chicago or Phoenix.

    I like this idea.....To elaborate more on Counts idea (which I love), why dont we try to get 30 posters and each poster get a team and hopefully we can those teams for other drafts (like 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013...etc). How does that sound? Its likes a keepers league.

    Do you guys like the idea, or is it just gay?

    Duke can have the Pacers. I was planning on just taking the last team picked. I'll have fun with it no matter which team I get.

    Which one do you want Count?

    Does anybody else see Chicago as a prime candidate to trade their late pick? If there's one thing that team doesn't need, it's more youth.

    What I want to know is if I should save Detroit for Kstat, Golden State for DC, and the Knicks for DisplacedKnick. Who knows if they'd even be interested?

    I guess I'll take Chicago...and I trade both picks and Tim Thomas to Indiana for Jamaal Tinsley and a dozen Long's donuts (Hot).

    I'm also going to option Derrick Rose to our NBDL team for all of next year, and decline his third year option.

    I'll take Charlotte if they're still available.

    (If I'm GM, I go to MJ and say "One round of golf: I win, you train for playoff minutes next Spring; you win, I'll make Larry Brown appear in a Hanes Underwear commercial" -- a la the coaches in Guitar Hero.)

    (On second thought, I suck at golf. Let's make it tennis, or better yet, something non-athletic ... like Defender.)

    Personally, I would prefer to do random team assignments....but if we don't go with that...I'll take Milwaukee.

    Mel, are we forced to make a pick?

    or

    Are we acting like a "Draft Day" GM and doing some wheelin' and dealin'? ( like offering the 10th pick+Gadzuric's contract for the Non-Lottery pick+$$$$+Expiring Contract to some other GM)?
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I'd say we're better off having all the players keep their picks and just draft.

    Trades are going to make things very screwy.
