It's time again for the CelticsBlog Pick 2 Draft!

The Pick 2 Draft, for those who are unfamiliar, is a fantasy basketball game. There are no winners and losers; it's supposed to be a laid-back and fun exercise.

In the first round of the draft, each GM selects an NBA franchise. You then pick two players from that franchise as "keepers." All subsequent rounds proceed as they would in a normal fantasy draft - in reverse, fixed order of the franchise selections - with each GM selecting one player. Last year, salaries counted and had to be taken into account when drafting. That could be an option again this year, but we'll likely let the people decide that.

Here's a link to last year's draft thread. Take a peek at it if you're still a little fuzzy on the details.

And here's a link to some of the final rosters.

This is just the interest thread. If you want to take part in the game this year, reply saying so. We're likely looking for at a minimum 20 GMs, but could go up to 30 if there's enough interest.

Again, this is a fun, relaxed game, so if you've been looking to get involved in some of the CelticsBlog drafts but have been intimidated, this is a great place to start! Additionally, some GMs in years past have worked together as co-GMs, so that option is available to you as well.

I'm not going to participate, but I will be monitoring the draft closely so I can take comments you guys say about my DKC guys and use them against you. Cheers, and hope this goes awesome!
