Mock draft results and analysis: Aug. 26 (poll)

Batman and Robin

Listen to Batman, Robin. (batmancomic.info)

We finally pulled off our mock draft on Thursday evening, and I’m happy to say that it was privileged enough to receive the attendance of many of my favorite fantasy basketball bloggers. Here’s the cast:

- Justin from Life is Just a Fantasy … Basketball Blog (Life is Just a Fantasy … Basketball Blog)

- Patrick from Give Me The Rock (GMTR_Patrick)

- Doneycat from Tale of 9 Cats (Doneycat)

- Tippy from Fantasy Basketball Daily (supposedly “ended up” with the automatically

generated “Fantasy god”)

- Henry from Weakside Help (Weakside Help)

- Eugene, my good friend and fantasy basketball nemesis (ec236)

- West, a reader who seems to have missed the draft; next time!

- Boogerboys, an unknown participant who was on autoselect until round eight

- drafting hungover, another unknown entrant

While I don’t like leagues that are any smaller than 12 teams (too shallow, too much parity between teams, don’t get to utilize the depths of your fantasy knowledge), there wasn’t any other choice at the time slot we drafted in. No matter: the fantastic company made it easy to forget the size of our draft.

Without further ado, here’s a quick and dirty recap of our mock draft (nine categories, head-to-head), with round-by-round analysis. (Henry already posted his analysis at Weakside Help.) Especially admirable picks are in green, while questionable picks are in red. (Picks made on autoselect were exempt from color-coded and written judgment.) I’ve also decided to include the pick times for each pick, in case anyone was interested. (The average pick time was 19.2 seconds, for all you fellow inquiring nerds out there.)
