    WhatIfSports doesn't have this season listed, so that's probably a no go.

    tom ... as best I can tell there's no penalty given for shortened seasons. It doesn't look as if volume stats are taken into account, which is what would matter for shortened seasons.

    MandaloreYak is up

    Yes. I expect team names to be posted with final rosters. Going to screen capture box scores son team names will be shown.

    Also, just had a thought that it would be hilarious if the GMs conspired to ensure a Celtic was the best available pick every time you got to pick Tunes ...

    There are a few Celtics I wouldn't mind drafting, actually. My bias against that organization doesn't mean I can't acknowledge great basketball skills.

    Nah, Tunes is guaranteed a top Laker. There's four, by my counting that could go in the late first round.

    Alright, I'll try to have my pick up within the next couple hours. Which guarantees it will be sub-optimal, but I'll try to make that up by debating the simulator.

    It was a good try. Maybe we can get some of the old comic drafts and stuff going. And I still haven't started lookin, tryna see if I can drop some unneeded weight.

    If anyone is feeling left out of the action(trim, etc.), feel free to give me all the advice you want. We could use a vice president of player personnel.

    Curses! There goes plan G. Now I've got to make revisions to plans H-N as well. This might take a while.

    Just going to make this pick now because it's kind of silly that these numbers are still on the board.

    Wilt Chamberlain ('61-'62)

    A popular vintage, it seems.

    P.S. you're welcome DarthTunick

    Yeah that was the "obvious." But then I saw Big O... And college memories won out.
