    Each team is seriously stacked. I think adding even two more GMs would’ve spread things out a lot and we’d be looking at a very different draft right now.

    So, for the actual games, I think I'll just rerank everyone randomly using that same site, and then stay with the same seeding throughout. Anyone have a problem with that?

    I don't know how I am supposed to distinguish between the teams (unless someone drafts Mark Jackson, that team would be last).
    Do we really have to do a head-to-head tournament? Can't we just save time and 1) have each person post about their team to highlight the strengths and strategy, 2) allow everyone to rank the eight teams (with participants only allowed to rank the other seven teams). If necessary we could do a head-to-head for numbers 1 & 2 and 7 & 8.

    • Drazen Petrovic

    Reggie says he’s the best shooter ever, and faster release then Steph Curry




    Drazen destroying Hakeem and the Rockets. Getting under the skin of Vernon Maxwell, lol.




    Another fierce competitor, in the joe Ingles category, can’t have too many of these types of players, he’s an elite shooter, but is not one of those one dimensional shooters, he has a good floor game, great passer and can get to the rim, good in pick and roll, has a great all around game. Had he not died so early, I think he was on his way to superstardom, very underrated player


    He’s the type of guy who would come into a game with his team down, and nail two or three 3’s in a row and change the completion of any game.

    Only 8 pickers doesn’t make for many trades with such a deep pool of players.

    Now that I checked, Ellis looks pretty good too. Last time I called someone, Ron won it all. So ready your fingers Ellis.
