    Advanced League Live Draft - Sunday Oct. 21 at 6:45 pm EST

    This gives us some time to do some wheelin' and dealin' before the season kicks off.

    Here's a couple of tips:

    Don't forget to pre-rank your players just in case you are unable to attend or run into technical difficulties on draft night. That being said, I strongly suggest you attend the draft as it is easily one of the highlights of the entire season. If you've never been a part of one, you are in for a treat. Yahoo provides a great interface.

    The draft will be a snake draft, meaning that each round the draft order will reverse. The last person to pick will be the first person to pick the following round.

    Draft order will be revealed just prior to the start of the draft, will be visible by opening the java applet, and is determined randomnly by Yahoo. I'd also suggest that you use the option provided by Yahoo (available now) that allows you to test if the Java application works properly for you. Trust me, it sucks to be there draft night just to find out that you can't get to the draft screen. Save yourself the headache and get it working before draft day.

    Let's do our homework and get ready to have an exciting season!

    Happy Drafting!

    Any thoughts on who you think the #1 draft pick will be?

    well, i haven't prepared or pre-ranked, i've got family over today, and i might not be present for all of the draft. so hopefully things won't go too poorly.

    either way i'm covering myself with a myraid of excuses in case my draft sucks :D

    I'd bet on KG. Otherwise Darko...the next KG.

    If I go #1 it will be a waste, because I am taking a guy who is not supposed to go #1

    I'm taking Kevin Durant with the number one pick. BF has me convinced.

    Kobe seems like a solid pick. Even if he leaves LA, he will probably go to a team where he is the #1, #2, and #3 option.

    Garnett could be interesting. he may see a decrease in his numbers with Pierce and Allen on the team.

    I think Garnett is a great choice.

    As usual, Kobe is off my list. I hate him too much to root for him.

    With 16 people drafting, it kinda changes things a bit. I might have to let the force guide me in the early picks...lol

    Garnett is good, but if I have the first pick I might not pick him because he actually has some great players around him now. That can really effect his numbers.

    Kobe is kind of unmotivated right now, so I do not know if I would pick him. Same goes with LeBron because Cleveland has done nothing this offseason. I have no idea who I will choose first.

    I see Garnets stats dropping a tad because of the help in Ray and Pierce..no doubt he is a top three pick though with Kobe and LBJ also in that top three

    Or maybe his stats increase because he is surrounded by two other all-stars that make it difficult to double team. The advantage they have is that each of them play distinctly different positions.

    Yesterday Yahoo reported that he is fully expected to be fit & ready for the season opener.

    motown gets the number 1 pick. there is a conspiracy going on here with commissioners.

    the draft application is up - you can launch it now. unless the order changes, it looks like motown and tater get the #1 and #2 picks (cheaters!). this is going to be an extremely interesting draft with 16 teams...i have a feeling everyone's going to be flawed in some way or another
