    Default Drafting Game

    Since this post comes up at the top of every page I decided to take advantage of it.

    As of now we are using a 12 hour selection window.

    What this means is, when the person ahead of you in the draft makes their pick, you will have upto 12 hours to make yours.

    After the 12 hours next person in line mat select & you may catch up whenever you can.

    One more thing. We now, offically, will be using a best of 7 format for our playoffs. Seeding will be done according to salary rank.

    A big thanks to Roaming Gnome for helping us out with the salary numbers.

    Thanks

    We're supposed to pick the player from a certain year? So someone else can pick Shaq from the 94-95 season?

    The way I interpret rule #7 it looks like there will be only one Shaq, no matter what year I select....I hope so anyway. For what it is worth...S. O'neal of 93-94!

    7. Players may only be selected once. This is an all time NBA draft, not everyone can have Wilt on thier roster.

    No other player can select Shaq in this game.

    For the purposes of the What if Sports tourney RG needed to select the year he wanted to use Shaq's starts from for the tourney.

    You don't need to make the year known at this time but you will need to decide before the tourney begins.

    I saw that one coming...

    I almost penciled it in when I posted Shaq at #1

    The Lip is on the clock.

    Yeah, I was considering Ol' Wilt but for some reason decided to go with Mr. O'neal...We'll see how it works out.

    I just wonder if Wilt will hit for any 50pt games in our league?

    You have to make sure the guy you want is a guard...For instance...Dominique Wilkins is often mistaken for a SG, but he is actually listed on What if, as a S. Forward!

    With the 4th pick the San Antonio Sycamores select Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Season to be named later.

    By the way Oscar comes up as a SG on the mock team I put together.

    Hey Jose...I have an Idea that might speed up the drafting part, if you haven't thought about it already...

    You could PM whoever is up to draft since it goes to their e-mail.

    Yeah, I'm a little anxious myself since I have to wait a good while to make my second pick. :devil3:

    Lip, you made a very good pick. Oscar was who I would have picked had he been available at my selection.

    Only other guy I would have taken ahead of Oscar would have been Wilt. The 61-62 season is probably the greatest individual statistical season anyone has ever put up and I highly doubt it will ever be matched as long as I live. (50 ppg, 25 rpg)

    The next best all around statistical season would probably be Oscar from the same 61-62 season. (30 ppg, 11 apg, 12 rpg)

    Its strange how they ended up in the same season.

    At the time of the draft, no.

    you will need to select a season for each of your players before the tourney starts.

    I sent him a PM already.

    If he doesn't make a pick this evening I'll add a player to his roster for him.

    Hey, why don't we do it like they do it in the NFL if you go over the clock...The next teams in line just come in and make their picks and when Btown gets in, he just makes his pick as if it was his turn. Saves you from having to make a judgement for him, and is fair to the guys after him.

    I'm not whining....Just a thought!
