Tag: mock draft
What: A fantasy basketball mock draft (H2H, nine categories, 12 teams, 14 rounds)
When: The evening of Thursday, Aug. 26 (around 7 p.m. EDT — exact time to be announced closer to the day when I know what time slots are available)
Where: Mock Draft Central (sign up for a free account; no, I do not get paid for this referral, but yes, I should)
Why: To get our fantasy basketball juices flowing during the suffocating desert that is the offseason
If you can’t make this one, don’t worry — we’ll organize at least one more before the season tips off. Ask any questions you might have in the comments section below, or reach me on Twitter: @fbasketballblog
It’s August, summer’s winding down, and what used to be the daily flood of NBA news and rumors has slowed to a trickle (I mean, seriously — vuvuzelas, Mike D’Antoni’s back and Dennis Rodman are the most interesting bits of NBA news out there?).
But fear not! The 2010-11 NBA schedule is just a week away and we’re less than three months away from the start of another season.
So with the beauty that is fantasy madness about to descend upon us, I wanted to gauge your interest in two things: mock drafts and live chats.
For live chats, I’m thinking I’ll take an hour or two (or more?) on a given day to take your questions/comments and offer my answers/reactions — kind of like a live Q-and-A session right here on this site.
So take your talents south of this paragraph and express your interest in possible mock drafts and live chats by voting in the poll below (or letting me know on Twitter). If I get enough responses for either option, I’ll organize them.
I’m of the mind that it’s never too early to participate in fantasy basketball mock drafts, so when Henry at Weakside Help reached out to me with the idea of partnering on a drafting adventure, I was amped — Robin Lopez amped.
Here’s the deal: We’re working with a 12-team head-to-head league with nine categories (FG%, FT%, 3ptm, Pts, Reb, Ast, Stl, Blk, TO) and 13 draft rounds. I’m taking the first round, Henry takes the second, I take the third, etc. Each round will consist of picking players in the order we see fit while making sure we’re building 12 viable teams as best as we can, sprinkling our comments along the way.
Got it? Good.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into the first round of our fantasy mock draft: (continue reading…)
