Alright cool, thanks.

If you change your mind before the pick or whatever let me know and you can take it over.

Team 1 wins. Let's save some time and call it a draft.

I have had a few drinks tonight so forgive my denseness but aren't we calling it the "Franchise Draft Thread."

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Thread

Just trying to save everyone time.

The problem with this format is that the top teams have such an advantage. It should be reverse snake draft to help offset that. (1-32, 32-1, 32-1, 1-32).

But, yeah, Team Jordan wins.

I actually thought it snaked.

Even if it doesn't it is interesting to build a franchise w/ this criteria. Cool idea.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Thread

Agreed it'll be fun.

It does snake. I'm saying reverse snake (see my example above. Not the same as a pure snake)

Its going to become a lot easier keeping in track that way. Keep the other thread open for comments regarding this draft.

(this message will self-destruct......hopefully)
understand your point. Maybe we should have two separate threads: One for picks and the other for commentary/analysis on those picks. I dunno...

I would actually do this also, but I don't know how many teams you guys want to stop at.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Thread

How do guys like Kareem and Moses Malone hold up in this draft???

Considering that we are drafting players from 1980 and above...these two guys played a big part of their careers in the 70s (possibly their primes were even spent in the 70's)

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Thread

I think the rule is their rookie year had to be 1980 or later, so those two are out.

They aren't eligible. Your rookie year had to be 79-80 season or later.
