Ok, so posting this to see if there is any interest in this silly game I came up with. If we get 10 teams we’ll do it, if we get a lot of interest we can expand it pre draft.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the NBA knucklehead Draft!
Rules: Five Rounds, must draft 2 Guards and 2 Forwards, last player can be either. If one of your 5 is injured for a significant time during the year, you may drop them via this thread and pick up a replacement from anywhere in the league. Outside significant injury (lets call it more than a month) no Add/Drops allowed.
Alternativly, we could do 3 rounds if people only want to follow 3 guys for the year
Trades are acceptable as long as both teams have 5 players at the end and conform to the 2 guard and 2 forward rule.
So how does this work? We will follow our teams player’s for the entire year. Owners are responsible for posting Scoring plays in this thread, and Myself and (god willing) a few volunteer Co-official scorers will update the Totals on Page One throughout the year.
In the event of “scoring plays” that are borderline calls, I’ll make the final call on if it counts, but discussion is of course encouraged in the thread.
So how Do you Score? See below for point system.

So let me know what you guys think, any intrest, ect.
Also I think since were 11 games in but to my knowledge there’s been no major scandals, if you pick a guy and he’s had Techs, flopping warnings, ect, those should count, so we’ll just score them retroactively.
So yea, anyway, post what you think, if we get interest I’d like to get it going fairly soon. Just a fun goofy game I think.
Also mabey we could do prizes for top individual scorer for the year in each catagory, total team score winner, ect.
TP's are the only prize I think we could offer
