    OK, here is my idea. The members at pf.com hold our own NBA Mock draft.

    There are 30 teams, so there will be 30 first round picks (some teams have more than one and some have none).

    Anyone interested signs up here. If I get enough interest, I'll throw the names in a hat and assign numbers accordingly. Best case, I get 30 interested people. But if I get ten, I'll do three rounds.

    Example: Jammer is one of ten people signing up. His name gets picked #7, #12, and #25. (I'll do it so that each name gets picked once before getting thrown in the hat again.

    Anyhow, thats my idea. I figure we can do a tad of research on a teams needs (or look at a couple other mock drafts) when we find out whose pick we have. Of course, we cannot account for trades on draft day.

    Our draft will probably take up to a week but it sounds like fun. So sign up here.

    Oh yeah, I didn't ask Roscoe about this, but he'll like it, and if not I'll blame Linwood.

    Also, I put this in this section because I thought if I put it in the games section some people may not look.

    OK, so sign up if you wanna be an expert, and if I can get at least ten we can do it.

    Slippy, Kimberly,and the rest of my pals...you better sign up! The rest of you (you know who you are) better sign up too. That includes you Roscoe!!!!!

    I'm in! I've always considered myself sort of an armchair Danny Ainge or John Nash.

    Thanks Sloopy, but you spelled my name wrong. :nerd2: That's ok, I'm used to you doing that.:gun1::jedi2:

    Looks like we will reach our quota of prognosticators. We've got a good bunch so far.

    Hey, do you guys want me to make Oden and Durant automatic #1 &#2 or and start assigning with the third pick, or should I not assume everyone will put them there and let the chips fall where they may?

    how dare you critisize my spellering!:gun1:

    not even the experts can agree. so have people really look at the 1 and 2.
    also how are we going to keep people from picking the same guy? The first pick posts first? the second next?

    and what is the format?

    Pick number: 1
    player selected: Darth Tater
    How he fits the Palpatine Imperials. Darth is easily the tallest Sith swinging a red lightsaber. How lost post play of highly developed considering his maturity level. While being encased in black armor hinders his athleticism, he does channel the force as well as any other player in the draft.

    After that the #2 guy goes.

    Pick number:2
    Player selected: blah blah blah
    Since Tater was taken first, it was a no brainer to select....

    I can move the posts so that it becomes a compiled mock draft.

    :MusicBigGrin: Eggzacly rite Slipppy. The draft weell take several daze cuz persun number too cant pik till he sees peoples number onez choice.

    mooving posts soundz great. I'll prolly give people till midnight tonite two sign up and then I'll draw the numberz. Butt I'll make myself inlegible for the Pistonz piks cuz I no everone wants too git um and it will look rigged if I doo, not that my intigrety is in questined.

    I tink it weell be lotz of fun but if rosgoat doesnt sine up their wil be hill to pay!

    Everyone who is in will have their name thrown in a hat. There are 30 slots available, but if we only get ten people everyone gets picked 3 times. 15 people, everyone twice.

    Lets say we have ten people and your name is pulled first. You get to choose who Portland picks. Your name doesnt go back in the hat until all names are drawn each round. So lets say slippy is 10th. After I draw his name, I throw everyone back in for picks 11-20. Then repeat for 21-30. All names will be drawn in advance.

    Does that make sense.? It's ok if we get an odd amount of people. If we get say...17 people, then 17 people will get at least one pick and 13 of those same 17 will get an extra choice to be used on picks 18-30.

    I guess people should pick based on who they actually tihnk a team will take based on the teams needs, but you are the GM's so it's your call.

    Sorry I wasn't clear at first. It's all Linwood's fault! :MusicBigGrin:

    Hey, anyone know what day the real NBA draft is? Thanks. :nerd2:

    Thanks on the date. I'm glad you asked for clarification. I thought of it late last night, and figured I was too vague.

    slippy, not sure we can move posts because they are time stamped and will re-order based on that. I'll try to think of a workaround.
