    Ok guys had a hectic last few days, but I like to tell you the rules we have decided on.
    It will be which team will be most likely to win a 7 game series one series a year over 5 years. Each team will face another in a head to head format. We will pretend both teams have made the NBA playoffs. Soon to be rookies are available to be draft IE Bamba Ayton Donic, but Gabriel, Vanderbilt, PJ Washington are OFF LIMITS to cut down on Pandering. I was thinking of adding a 2 UK player max, but I'll ultimately leave that up to a vote with 16 teams it should be fairly distributed.

    I will be performing 2k simulations. Injuries turned on. This will be done by each one of us picking an Organization as a pick in the draft. This will be your coach for intents and purposes but will also be location of play, home court advantage, etc. that 2k puts into the nuances of the game. To do this I will do a Fantasy draft and assign all players to their respective 16 teams and all other teams (cpu) will draft the lowest player on the draft board. I will customize the conferences to have 8 teams from each conference from each side of the bracket that is generated. To break it down further more I will then split the conferences into 2 divisions with 4 teams a piece so that we compare the divisions at the end of the season. I will then simulate each season and save a file after it is done for 5 season. This will ensure I can go back each round and run a 7 game series simulation in each of the 5 years.

    I will also run a pure simulation and tell you all who wins the championship year to year and provide other details if you all are interested.

    The team that wins the simulation could get 20% of the overall votes added to his total. So if 40 people vote on the thread the winner of the simulation would be awarded 6 additional votes to boost there total, and possibly tip the scales. Thought it'd be a fun addition.

    6 hrs to pick, clocks stops between midnight and 9am, though picks can be made during those times. 10 rounds, picks are in snake order. Also if you timeout your pick in the first few rounds you might forfeit your team to another user, so please check RR frequently during the draft.

    Winner gets bragging rights for a full off season.

    You're first to respond you're in. I think Norse is in the other AllTime draft.

    Well make @UKNorse first alternate for teams that time out.

    battle of the summer drafts. Who wins, Gonzo or Runt. I can only handle playing in one and I've already committed to this one.

    I'll go first.

    Michael Jordan.

    Also, I think Lebron shouldn't be an option since the other draft thread is omitting Jordan. Makes no sense. People might hate Lebron but if the team is right we all know how great he is.

    Lebron would ball everyone of those with no problem. Who would vote for Khwai or KD over Lebron?

    We're going to do voting. Winner of the simulation will get an extra 15% of the total votes added onto the total number of votes.

    For example
    Team 1 21 votes
    Team 2 19 votes but wins simulation gets an extra 6 votes (15% of 40 total) for a total of 25 votes and advances to the next round.

    I thought 15% wasn't to over or underwhelming.

    Lebron is 33 now and over the next 5 years he'll be aging. Theres at least a solid argument to be made. Would you rather have Old Lebron or KD, Greek Freek, Khawi.

    Also to all the people that are scared lebron gets all the votes, maybe in 2k he retires early? That'd be a big hit

    I mean, Lebron is amazing. Like one could legit argue he is the goat. However, he’s 33 and would be in his 21st season by year 5. Imo, he is far from a lock as a top 5 pick, let alone first in a 5 year draft.
