    Thank you to everyone who was involved in the current players draft, and congratulations to our winner, tfivas.

    Anyways, you know the deal. Construct the best 10 player team possible. The goal is for your team to beat any and all of the other teams being drafted.

    Once a team/user/owner is on the clock (it's their turn), they have up to 12 hours to make their pick. The quicker the better but a 12 hour maximum time period will be allotted.

    Each pick must include the player's name, their "resume", and why they are the best ****ing pick possible at that place in the draft for your team — a kick *** pic or two, maybe even a highlight video, helps as well usually. Some details may be left out so as not to give away a team's strategy or indirectly allude to who that team/user/owner may be considering with their next pick(s), but you get the point.

    Trading can occur during the draft and once it's done. Once the draft is complete, there will be a short amount of time for post-draft trades before the playoff tournament ensues. The winner of each match in the tournament will be determined by the voting of JazzFanz.

    It will take more than 1/3 of the participants which in this case would be 6 votes to veto a trade. I don't think we will have a problem with any trades but there is a system in place just in case.

    I'm hoping for a total of 16 teams, please only serious people who will not take the whole 12 hours and will actually make their pick within 3-5 hours or so. Preseason is coming up soon, so we need to be on the ball with it.

    If someone misses their pick, it moves on to the next person. When the pick-misser returns, they can choose from any currently available players. The person who was then on the clock has the option to take that player themselves.

    This is a legendary players draft, only NBA players who are no longer playing as of the start of the tournament can be selected. Players who played in 2018-2019 but have not yet announced their retirement are not eligible, even if they don't have a contract. Players who are playing in foreign leagues and do not have a reasonable expectation of getting a deal with an NBA team are eligible.

    Worth of a player is determined by two things: their best season, and the weight of their career. So someone who was rock solid for 20 years but never flashy could be worth about the same as someone who was great for a few years but faded out quick.

    In the event of a tie, the team with the most votes from the other participants will win the tie-breaker. If it is still tied after that we will go into sudden death and the first team to receive a write-in vote will win and move on.

    All participants must vote in every matchup.

    The playoff seeding will be determined randomly and the playoff system will work extremely well with 16 teams. I hope to have the draft ready to go by Tuesday or Wednesday, 9/24 or 9/25. I will be as transparent as possible with both the draft seeding and the playoff seeding. I will be using http://www.draftordergenerator.com/ to determine draft seeding. I liked the modified snake draft we did for the Current Players draft, so I'll do that again.

    If anyone has any questions, please ask.

    To me it is the best part of this gig.

    Then again maybe I am saying this since I have never won anything.

    But seriously I’ve learned a lot in these things.

    The voting on this is kinda stupid since so few posters know these players or saw them play. Add that to the fact that most everyone completely misses the impact on a defensive liability of a team filled with all stars.
