    hot take incoming

    too complex

    we generally struggle to even finish these drafts. inty's done a great job with the mini drafts, pushing them forward with a small, committed set of GMs and judges. i'd say keep that formula, and keep the rules simple.

    Oh. I like that. It's a good work-around. Again, leaves you with the ability to improve your team or weaken the other team, but not too much.

    Edit: that was to DP4M, not heelsy

    I'd be down for a sports draft. I had floated some ideas for a different NBA draft a good while back, but no one said anything so I figured the interest was dead lol.

    I think some limitations would be cool. Maybe limit everyone to just two hall of famers and the rest of the roster has to be filled with non all stars? Could be fun if everyone likes to research, and make it a little more challenging. Just my two cents.

    That's an interesting suggestion, but what do you do with active players and those who are retired, but not yet eligible for the hall of fame? I don't think it's quite fair to give someone peak Dirk and peak LeBron and peak KD on a technicality, when the rules would say you need to dig deeper and find someone else.

    The one time we did restrictions, we did a single season of eligibility only (current season at the time)

    If we go with a four-player, I think it might be fun to go with a restriction where the first player to pick in the round determines that all other picks in that round have to be from the same franchise. Then, each round, we change who goes first to dictate terms.

    ex: if heels, asw, dlote, and rx are the four, the draft order would go like this:

    Round 1:

    heels
    asw
    dlote
    rx

    Round 2:

    rx
    dlote
    asw
    heels

    Round 3:

    asw
    heels
    rx
    dlote

    Round 4:

    dlote
    rx
    heels
    asw

    Then, we'd do that pattern three times for 12 total rounds. so in Round one, if heels picked 1997 Michael Jordan, everyone else would have to pick a member of the bulls. And in round 2, if rx picked 2007 LeBron, everyone else would have to pick Cavaliers that round. It might sound cumbersome and complicated, but I think it works out nicely.

    Another thought I had was to limit everyone to one pick from each Franchise. So, if you pick Larry Bird, you can't select another Celtic.

    how about a comic book character draft, but instead of fighting they have to play basketball?

    i would probably be in for another nba draft, always had fun in the past. i like your rotating franchises idea.
