    I'll do the all time team thing, but not the other due to the lack of time.

    Lets let I Love the Pacers work up some guidelines & see how many players we have. The size won't matter in this league since the draft will be done so quickly.

    How should be pick our teams?

    Lottery?, first pick gets to select any team he wants?

    The game can really encompass any number of players less than about 20 or so. Obviously the Celts and Lakers have the richest histories so they will probably win if we don't either exclude them or make a restriction on total salary or based on some other criteria.

    Let me know if you support the "salary-cap" type of draft or if you have a better idea.

    Also, how many players should we draft?


    Right now we have interest from (11 total):

    ILovethePacers
    Rim Bender
    Joel
    burnzone
    Roaming Gnome
    dipperdunk
    SoupisGood?

    I'll play if we do the all-time thing.

    I don't think we should restrict it really, although the salary cap wouldn't be all that bad. But definetly allow the Lakers and Celts.

    The what if sports site is set up for you to draft 2 centers, 4 forwards & 4 guards, so I guess 10 players.

    Salary cap is fine with me.

    I also think the Lakers & Celtics should be in.

    yeah... this one wont start until after the current one ends.

    If able plays, we will have 12 total players.

    I think we should put a cap on the total salary of the team... Hence, if we have a total of 10 players, perhaps it should be on the order of 6-7 million per player... so a total of 60-70 million.

    Agree? Disagree?

    I would say the 70 million sounds good. That's about what our teams in game 1 will average.

    I also like the idea of only 12 players. If we go with that, why don't we go ahead and do the drawing and select our teams. That will give us until the end of game 1 to pick the players and years we want to use. We could also have the schedule in place as well.

    Ok... Here are the rules:

    I'll give it another day for people to join the game.

    I will then randomize the picking order for teams by allowing a non-participant randomize them for me.

    After the order is decided, the first player may pick their franchise.

    Players and teams from ABA and NBA years allowed.

    You may pick a franchise that has changed cities (i.e. Minneapolis and L.A. Lakers are the same team and so are Charlotte and New Orleans Hornets).

    You may pick a franchise that has changed names (i.e. The Washington Bullets are the same as the Washington Wizards).

    After the first drafting game ends and all franchises are chosen, you will have a total of 1 week to pick your teams (unless you think we need more time).

    You will pick 10 players.

    The total salary must be equal to or under 70 million dollars.

    I need help on this last part, since I'm not too sure about using Whatifsports, but here's what I've come up with so far:

    Depending on the number of players and drafting order, I will construct a single elimination tournament bracket. The highest seeds (lowest draft order) will have byes if necessary.

    Currently we still have 12 participants... but 16 would be nice! Please tell me if I missed you or if you want to play.

    Participants:

    ILovethePacers
    Rim Bender
    Joel
    burnzone
    Roaming Gnome
    dipperdunk
    SoupisGood
    Pig Nash
    Jose Slaughter
    MSA2CF
    Sycamore Ken
    Able?

    Below is the picking order. Please pick your franchise in order, starting with MagicRat, when you get the chance (no rush.. as we are in no hurry to finish this game since the last game hasn't even ended yet). If the picking starts taking on the order of multiple days, then we will have to institute a time limit. I'm going to make a new thread and hopefully we can sticky it to the top, so make your picks there... Anyone else wanting to play is free to be added to the bottom of this list so long as the game isn't over.

    1.) MagicRat
    2.) Able
    3.) Dipperdunk
    4.) Jose Slaughter
    5.) Rim Bender
    6.) Pig Nash
    7.) Burnzone
    8.) Roaming Gnome
    9.) SoupisGood
    10.) ILovethePacers
    11.) MSA2CF
    12.) Joel
    13.) Sycamore Ken

    I know what you mean...

    However, I think it'll be fun being at the bottom... more room to pick a franchise that you like, or to pull a surprise upset in the tourney
