The draft order rules were wildly weird this year. We will abide by them as they were agreed to at the beginning of the year; however I would like to address them for next year. Much like the NBA has done, we have had a peculiar overreaction.

I finished 6th last year, won a playoff series and now because of "anti-tanking rules" am drafting 10th. I didn't even notice at the time, so be it. However, I would like to correct for the future. I am all for keeping the consolation tournament picks the same so those who do not make the playoffs are rewarded for postseason success. However, having 3rd place, a monied spot in every league I have ever played in, having anti-tanking rules seems inappropriate. I would vote to have the first 6 picks decided as they are today, the 7th and 8th picks decided by RS record, and the remaining picks by PS tournament.

Please vote on future draft order with your first pick.

As always, Cats:
Pts/Reb/Asst/Stl/Bl/FG%/3s/TOs/FTMs

As we had last year, 3 adds/week. This does not include trades.

Someone please find Ozzy. I cannot imagine any other possible keepers but he will be drafting soon I would hope.

IC will be gone and may not be able to draft until Tuesday so this will be a slow roll out.

Oz already posted his keepers in the NBA Thread.? Curry and Kawhi.? I think you need to edit in the keepers to the first post so bigwig can ctrl+f his first pick.? I really don't care about the draft order.

The Yahoo site has all available players, but I will attach keepers into the 1st post.

Copied from the regular NBA thread: Yahoo is updated. If you look at the Players List it will show you who has been kept and who is available. However, the 'All Available Players' filter is a little wonky so you have to look and see if a player is already on a team.

I vote keep it the way we did it this year for two reasons:

1) It gives everybody something to play for all the way through the playoffs?
2) HK doesn't like it

I think if HK wants to throw out the result of the 5th place game in favor of regular season record the same should be done for the 3rd place game. It's not a money league and I don't know if people are really hanging their hat on a 3rd place finish. Otherwise I'm with Bigwig and keeping something on the line.

I'm with this. 3rd and 5th place should not be treated any differently especially since this is not a money league. That said, I have always played to lose after my team lost in the Playoffs. I always wanted the better pick and the rules rewarded me for quitting.

That's right. And I'm pretty sure this happened between you and I one year.
