    Since I have some free time on my hands, I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a draft.

    Everyone is assigned a team to draft for and it works like a fantasy draft, except you build a team that you think could win in real life. Every player is thrown into the player pool. 5 starters and 1 or 2 bench players.

    I'm looking for either 6 or 10 owners to do this - each owner will take 3 or 5 teams each, depending on who is interested. I like less people because the seperation in between picks are shorter, which keeps people interested and the draft moving faster.

    I'm doing this in another forum and it is very fun/interesting and leads to a lot of debate. I figure to determine a winner we could place all teams in a playoff and vote on which team would win each individual matchup...unless anyone has a better idea. Just something to pass the time of a bad Piston's season!

    Who is in?

    Yeah. It's not just gunna be a one day thing. It'll be a draft that continues in the forum until it is finished. I would ask that people check in at bare minimum once a day. (In hindsight probably should have put this thread in the NBA general discussion forum sorry)

    You'll probably have no problem finding 6 or 8 owners who check in daily. It's fine here until you fill your league. This is where most of the action is. We'll move it to the competition forum once you're good to start.

    It's just not interesting. I don't see the point.

    Personally, I just think it's fun to play GM. Everyone is always complaining about Joe's moves so it is interesting to see what type of team YOU would make if you had the chance.

    I guess I like playing GM which is why I always enjoyed franchise mode in Madden.

    Seems like mid-season fantasy. Makes little sense to me.

    If you don't have anything nice to say...:diablo:

    I'm in! I LOVE the fantasy drafts in Madden, etc.

    I'd buy NHL 09 except for the fact that it doesn't offer fantasy drafts (as far as I can tell). That's my favourite part of playing sports games.

    I'm really surprised this is taking so long. Sounds really fun to me.

    It sounds like a lot of work to go through the draft process only to have a winner arbitrarily picked. If Lebron takes down this championship, I'm going to be very depressed.
