Don't crucify me for this but: maybe we do strictly a draft with no trades to take out loads of confusion as to who ends up where and make it a strictly draft skills based exercise.. Thoughts?

It's been almost impossible to follow and keep up with all the moving pieces in the past. This would make the draft go a lot quicker and focus on a particular skill.

Hmmm... I actually like the trade discussions, but agree there are some folks who just take things tooooo far.

I have a couple minor tweaks in mind, but don't know that I'd want to do away with trades. but that's just me.

Understandable. Trades are fun but we definitely need some sort of limit/maximum in place. In the past it's been impossible to tell who has what players/picks with the massive amount of trades.

Bumping this thread.

How many GM's do we have? We need to do this.

Join. Test your GM-ing skills, I'm talking to you, you people that think Danny Ainge should have traded/drafted for a different player.

Let's test those skills out.

Looks like we're about halfway there in terms of filling this up. I've been playing this since it first came to the blog, and even helped as a commish early on. One of my favorite online activities, that's for sure. I highly recommend giving it a shot!

I always like the historical drafts better, but time permitting would do this lesser version.

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
We (my wife and I) just had our second baby and we're in the middle of DKC Free Agency, so I won't have the time (unless it is way later in the summer) but if anyone is on the fence, I encourage people to join. Especially first-timers who don't know if they can figure it out or not. You CAN figure it out. It WILL be more fun than you think. Advice to win: Don't take it too seriously, and don't pick LeBron, that's a cheat.

I wonder, where's triboy and Chris22 in all of this?

With those guys posting a lot of stuff about drafting and who's good and bad, I feel this is the perfect game for them.
