Alright guys, this was brought up about two weeks ago but I haven't seen anybody set a date or anything.
Last season, we proposed an NBADraft.net community mock draft (http://nbadraft.net/forum/nbadraftnet-user-mock-draft)
Here are the rules and regulations:
-There are no trades allowed. We can't predict the trades to take place but we can predict the picks to be taken.
-Each "GM" picks a team and makes their picks for the 1st round.
-This is 1st round only.
-The team sub-forums are used as "War Rooms" so that you can and other GMs or fans of the team you selected can help make a better decision. For example (http://nbadraft.net/forum/user-mock-draft-discussion)
-Each team has 5 minutes to make their selection
This is how it went down last season: http://www.nbadraft.net/forum/nbadraftnet-user-mock-draft-0
The draft will take place Saturday, June 22 at 2pm PST (5pm EST)
What team do you guys want?
I'm down. Clippers.
Can I take the Celtics again?
I'll take the Cavs unless someone else has seniority dibs lol
^Cavs War Room
Can i have the kings?
Never mind. Have to do something that day.
Alright here is the Jazz War Room http://nbadraft.net/forum/utah-jazz-war-room
Forget what I said before
Oklahoma City count me in!
Alright, 7 of the 30 first round picks have been taken by you guys.
Philly please :)
At the risk of looking like a complete idiot, where are the team sub-forums?
The hell? I guess Aran deleted them, I can't seem to find them either lol
Just make the war rooms in the NBA forum (http://nbadraft.net/forum/forums/basketball/nba)
So we won't flood the NBA Draft forum
If your team is already selected, feel free to participate in the "war room" to provide suggestions and influence the GM.
I like the idea. I'll take the Heat.... oh wait...
Can I take Detroit?
I'll take Washington as 3rd pick will be interesting. I'm UK based so it will be 9/10pm when the draft takes place here but I'll keep that hour free.
Those are the teams that are left.
Detroit - DoctorDoubtfire
Atlanta - CavFanPR
Philadelphia - lawrencjd
Sacramento - LlamaDrama
I'm skeptical about you guys since you have a low post count. Does anybody want to be the replacement if they do not follow through?
Dont worry about me I literally have been coming to this site fr 3 years just never started posting til now. Finally got the courage to speak up on my thoughts and Ill be a regular with my opinion on this site for now on.
Alright sweet, bro!
ill take NY
Anybody got any comment on Detroit?! I'm looking to get Trey Burke but don't know if he will be there.
So I'm gonna have to make the Wolves open...got a wedding to go to, lol. Pick well, whoever replaces me!
We still have
left, we need these positions filled by tonight or tomorrow morning!
I'll take Phoenix
Bump. We still need more people by the looks of it.
Oh man, the Pacific Time thing threw me off. I'll take the Pacers.
oh looks like someone actually already picked the suns, i'll pick for portland
Maybe postpone for Sunday 5pm.
who do you think you arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre???
P.S I don't care if some one else picked them, seniority rules...
Just let me know when this User draft is happening...
I'm pushing it back 2 hours. Hopefully we can get some more people. I'll take New Orleans
I can do Utah, but how do we make the picks?!
I'm going to make a separate thread in two hours and we each make our selection when it's our turn.
That's how it happened last year
I'm online, just confirm a start time please and I'll try to still be on-line
4pm PST, 7pm EST
I think you might want to push it back to tomorrow or something. I doubt the remaining 9 teams will be filled up in an hour.
I think you're right. I'm still going to see if it fills but if it doesn't, we'll do it tomorrow at noon
Noon on a sunday is not the most convenient of times. I feel like more users (myself probably included) would pull out before then than would join.
So I make the pick in the war room or just post it on the post or contact you?
TOngue-Out is going to make a "2013 User Mock Draft" thread.
Whoever has the Cavs will make a comment with the first pick.
Whenever it somes to your team, you will comment with that team's pick.
I'll take the Wolves
We doing this? We could just go with Aran's mock/big board for unclaimed teams
