NBA Acquisitions: Early Grades

Mon, 12/15/2008 - 11:53pm
By Mike DeStefano

The summer set the tone for an extremely active first month of the season. A lot of notables have changed addresses and donned new jerseys, including six former All-Stars (with hopefully a seventh on his way out of NYC in the near future). These big moves have drastically changed the teams involved, so I’m going to play professor and grade the biggest acquisitions of this young season based on how these new-look squads performed through Early December.

Create Your Own Mock Draft

Wed, 12/03/2008 - 9:26pm

Create your own 2009 mock draft with our easy-to-use, interactive draft system and see how you compare to the actual draft in June. We'll score your mock draft and post the top winners. You'll also be able to see how you match up with consensus mock draft of the entire community. Here's how it works:

1. Search for your players
Use the search box to find a specific player by name. Or, do an "advanced search" using an * to view the entire player list.


2. Add a player to your mock pool.
Once the search results appear, simply click on the "ADD TO MY MOCK POOL" link to add a player into your pool. If your search contains more than one player, click on the column headers to sort by player name, class or position.

Add to My Mock

Players can also be added from their player profile pages by clicking on the "ADD TO MY MOCK POOL" button.

3. Drag a player from your pool into your mock.
After you've added some players to your Mock Pool, click on the My Mock menu (under "Mocks" in the main menu). To the right, you'll see your pool with the list of players you've added. On the left is the Mock Draft. To move a player from the pool into your draft, simply click and hold the mouse over the player's name, drag him into position in your mock draft, and then unclick. The player is now added to your mock draft. You can drag a player to another position within your mock draft. To delete a player, right click on your mouse.

Drag and drop

4. Come back and edit your Mock Draft as often as you like.
Up until the actual draft in June, you can come back as often as you like to make updates to your mock draft. Once the draft has occurred, your mock will be "scored" and the results posted.
