2009 Draft Day Challenge

The web's biggest and most comprehensive mock draft contest is back!



Here's your chance to show your expertise on the NBA Draft.


Mock Draft Contest

Our “Draft Day Challenge” is back! Scores are given based on accuracy of mock draft, and prizes will be awarded. Be the top “mocker” and win our top prize, a brand new Sony Play Station 3.

Be sure to fill out a 60 player mock draft before the NBA draft starts and compete with your friends and the entire NBADraft.net community.

To create your own mock draft, click here.

Your score will be recorded and you will receive an overall score, rank and percentile among participants.

Scoring System

Here is the scoring system (after the draft is complete). Different point totals are awarded for first round picks (positions 1 - 30) and second round picks (positions 31 - 60).


1-30 (First round) 31-60 (Second Round)
Exact pick 5 pts 3 pts
within 3 positions 3 pts 1 pt
within 5 positions 2 pts 1 pt
within 10 positions 1 pt 1 pt
greater than 10 positions 0 pt 0 pt


For more information on the scoring system, please click here: Draft Day Challenge Scoring System

Rules:

1. You must provide a valid name, email and address.

2. Deadline to submit mock draft is 30 minutes prior to start of draft.

Create & Share Your Mock Draft

Our latest feature allows you to not only create a full 60 player mock draft but write explanations for why you think each pick will be made. Set your mock, fill in your comments and send the link to friends or post it on Facebook or other social networking sites for all your friends to see!

Member Point System

Another new feature on the site is a point system which is based upon accumulating points on the forum (with our new thumbs up/thumbs down point system) – as well as accumulating points in other ways such as suggesting friends become members, as well as scoring high in the Draft Day Challenge.

hey guys

tech guy is aware of pts glitch and working on it.

i think the points system can be good, gives people incentive to make quality posts and improve the overall conversation of the board.

if you know ppl who might be interested in the draft day challenge let them know!

thanks guys!
 
ps: butidonthavemoney if u go under -3100 points i'm gonna have to ban you...........

I'm pretty sure all you have

I'm pretty sure all you have to do is place your picks in each spot and they automatically save. Then provide your name and information in your account.
