OK time permitting I'll try to get this all set up, a suggestion is needed though, how many teams should we have?

We can get real down and dirty and have as many as there are in the NBA now, what 30?

Or we can limit it to say 16ish to keep the teams from being diluted and to keep our research a bit less time consuming.

I vote for 16 teams, both for personal reason and for reason mentioned above.

GREAT idea.

In.

I say 16. I can use the sites bracketing software to facilitate the bracket/voting.

Just get me on the other side of the bracket from Herman Fontenot.

I am sure with all this excitement about hoops in CTown right now we can get 32 easy, so maybe two 16 team leagues. Each league drafting from it's own separate pool of players? Repeat players drafted but 1 in a million odds of any identical repeat teams between the 2 leagues I would think. Thoughts.

Rich or any mods maybe pin this for a while?

Pinned. One thing we will have to clarify is if you have to draft a PG and a SG, or just two guards. Maybe even come up with a position list, so we have clarity on what positions swingmen would be drafted at.

Also, I like the idea of drafting a coach as well.

Positions required:

PG
SG
SF
PF
C

1 swing man at the guard spot
1 swing man at the f/c spots

1 coach

Total of 7 players.

For the sake of any disputes about position maybe we can go by an official site's listing in their stat page for the player, or just a board consensus about the position said player played longest or the most?

As for positions, should we not just let the person drafting use their discretion? If they want to draft and start 5 post guys, than they run the risk of it coming back to bite them in the voting. I'm good either way, this is going to be fun.

I am not opposed Bayou, but here is my thinking on why maybe we shouldn't, to keep it a bit more realistic and avoid popularity contest stuff in regards to the players. Let's face it few of us saw Wilt or Russell play, we know they were great, but we might as a demographic be more inclined to vote for the team with the Jordans and the Kobe's only b/c we are more familiar with them.

Either way I am up to what the group wants.

I see where you're coming from, I guess it could go either way.

Another thing we could do for kicks is to run the matchups on whatifsports.com to see there simulated scores and box scores. We'd still vote to determine the winner, but it would be interesting to see how they simulate it and how players would matchup and perform. Not sure how much you can do on that site for free, but I'll look into it. Just another dimension to add to the discussion when we match these teams up.

Not sure if this is possible or not but if we could "pimp" our own team within the matchup and talk trash about the other to help provide voters with a "take" ont he matchup, that could be cool...?

I'd love to have a paragraph throw down about how The Diesel (my C) would slaughter David Robinson (opponent) and Gary Payton would be too much for Fat Lever to handle...

Without a doubt Noles.

I think the during the draft commentary on our picks, commentary on the matchups as the voting is commencing ... will be the funnest part.

War Fat Lever references.

If there is enough interest another 16 would be no problem I imagine.

Yeah Don, just use that second random draft generator link (one you don't need email addresses for) ... and just cut and paste the results.

Ha, just my luck. :-( :sad: :(

Seriously though, great idea Donny. I'm excited to join if someone drops out or if we can get 15 more.

Junior, I know a guy that will snip one of the other competitors brake wires for 15 large. Heavy price tag, but you'd be in.

Is there any suspense as to who the first pick of the draft will be?

This is going to be alot of fun. It'll be interesting to see the reasons why individuals picked the players they did. Especially if it comes down to a George Miken over a Bob Lanier
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I saw this thread too late. Out of curiosity, though, how are the teams going to be scored or rated? Subjectively, or is there something I missed?

Rich is going to put it in bracket form and put it into the hands of John Q Public.

Here is the draft order.

I had to do it three times for integrity reasons b/c the first time Swerb was first (sorry bud, it is your site) and I was first the second time (just wouldn't look right).

Go from LeBron to the Elgin Baylor/Jerry West duo.

Not sure if I'm happy or sad about that.

As long as the Whopper, Billy Paultz is still available at the 10th pick, it's all good.

My suggestion is starting right now, and give it a day or two and see how we are going. If it starts to drag way too much then maybe try to force feed it a little.

Pick a guy and provide a link (basketball ref.com etc...) verifying the player and position, sound good?

rebel's up, no harm in rebel picking without everybody being aware at this point, right?

Not bad having the #1 pick.

With the 1st pick in the 2009 TCF NBA Greats Draft I select:

Michael Jeffrey Jordan, 6'6" SG
1982 ACC Freshmen of the Year
1991 SI Sportsmen of the Year

Now it gets interesting.

junior, if this lasts past Friday night I might need you to take over and finish this up for me.

I'm leaving Saturday for California and I'll be out for a week (23-30). We'll see how it plays out, but I'll pm you if I need your help.

Why take Jordan when Sam Bowie was still on the board? You can never have too many big men.

As a help for this maybe if people know they will be unavailable for long stretches of the day they can let us know ahead of time if possible.

For instance I will not have access to a PC between 4:30am & 4:00pm on Wednesday.
