Sure thing. Just send me a PM letting me know what picks you won't be available for. I can step in for anyone if needed, as long as I am by the computer.

And Swerb, let me get back to you on that offer :thumb up:

The draft order was just posted yesterday evening. I'm sure not everyone got the memo yet.

Mu suggestion is leave to try to always leave your next pick (or a list of priorities) with somebody on the site you know is on often or with Rich or myself. Warning though I am MIA for hours at a time Monday-Thursdays.

Only 8 rounds we'll be alright though.

Pup you'll get no disagreement from me, and Bill was one of the NBA's greatest greats. But I am not too sure that the whole championship thing will play out the way you intend it in a publicly decided bracket judging the match ups. IMO numbers and one other thing will win out in most minds.

With all due respect to Swerb and FUDU, the draft's mastermind, but I think each participant should get to write the brief description arguing for their team (if they choose) for the capsule in the bracket. Just a thought.

Man could we do a Football version of this?

I'd be itching to do it as soon as this is over, would anyone be interested?

This seems like a really cool idea, and I'm really excited to see how this will turn out.

I'm wondering how high Bird and LeBron will go in this.

Reason Magic took so long, his greatness wasn't as tied to numbers as other greats. Plus he wasn't a prolific scorer remember. A thing like we're doing here is going to focus on scorers early on IMO.

A salient point, but scorers can be found anywhere. Hell, Ben Gordon is a "scorer" and he won't be taken in this thing. There is a lot to be said for assists, leadership, size at your position and a winning mentality.

Understood, I'm just stating that even though Magic is often mentioned as one of the top 3 greatest ever he could be overlooked in something like this b/c other greats scored at a greater clip than he did.

Wikipedia has him as a SG/PG, so I think either are in play. Lord knows if the PD can cite wikipedia as a source (they did, it's a fact) so can I.

I actually might have taken the Big O, but I was so late that I said screw it.

With the 8th pick, I take Shaquille O'Neal. One of the most unstoppable players this league has ever seen.

Don't know if Pharoah is still on the clock, but I'm pretty confident he won't make this pick.

This might be a surprise pick to some of you, but I feel awfully good about it.

A three-time NBA Most Valuable Player. One of the league's all-time great rebounders, especially on the offensive glass. Single-handedly dragged a dogshit, 40-win Rockets team to the 1981 Finals, and two years later put the 76ers over the top with one of the most dominating postseason runs ever. Kareem was his bitch. His name might as well be "Relentless." But it isn't. It is Moses Malone, center, from Petersburg, Virginia.

Damn Herm, I have a feeling you and I will be going after identical picks. Once I saw I was 13 in the draft, I had Malone on the radar. No surprise here, good pick

I've got BritP for Robertson and Herm for Holy Moses Malone (nice pick, btw).

That puts Jordan on the clock and myself on deck.

Gee, I wonder who you're going to pick Bayou?

Could it be a gentleman that grew up in Clemson, SC ;).

It's going to kill me not to pick him, but I just can't justify it right now. He's my personal favorite sports figure of all time though.

Y'all need some regulation on time allotted to pick.

This isn't holding my attention like the Rock Band deal did and it really should be.

sorry guys, i had to cut a lot of grass today so i couldn't get on till now. so without any further ado i will select Dr. J, Julius Erving.

not only was he one of the greatest NBA players of all time, but you have to take into account that, in the heyday of the ABA, he was their best player.

Julius Winfield Erving II (born February 22, 1950 and raised in Roosevelt, New York), commonly known by the nickname Dr. J, is a retired American basketball player who helped launch a modern style of play that emphasizes leaping and play above the rim.

Erving helped legitimize the now-defunct American Basketball Association (ABA). Much as some players are considered "the team," Dr. J was considered "the league." He was the best known player in the ABA when the ABA-NBA merger joined it with the National Basketball Association (NBA) after the 1976 season.

Erving won three championships, four Most Valuable Player Awards, and three scoring titles while playing with the ABA's Virginia Squires and New York Nets and the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers. He is the fifth-highest scorer in professional basketball history, with 30,026 points (NBA and ABA combined). He is well-known for slam dunking from the free throw line in Slam Dunk Contests.

Erving was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time team and in 1993 was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2004, he was inducted into the Nassau County Sports Hall of Fame. Many consider him among the most spectacular basketballers ever, and one of the best dunkers. His signature dunk was the "slam" dunk, since incorporated into the vernacular and basic skill set of the game, in the same manner as the "cross-over" dribble and the "no look" pass.
