Equal Opportunity League FULL (DRAFTING) Topic

New Year and another attempt at filling this league,

No changes to how felonius has been running this great league, here we go:

I was doing some yardwork yesterday when I stubbed my toe on a metal box. One corner of the box was barely sticking out of the ground so I unearthed the rest of it. It was manuscripts by my boy Al Einstein from back in the day! Explaining space-time continuum and the pre-cursor to the super-string theory.
Anyhow, I've figued out how to manipulate the six dimensions that comprise our existence. I roamed back to nineteen seventy eight and kid-napped Moses Malone, then traveled to nineteen seventy six. In nineteen seventy six I poisoned the disgruntled, moody Moses Malone and replaced him with the nineteen seventy eight version. Then the vibrant, offensive rebounding machine from nineteen seventy eight stepped into the Buffalo Braves line-up in nineteen seventy six and led them to the NBA championship!

I'm willing to share my knowledge of time travel with twenty three other competent owners. This league will be an all-time franchise league where you can use any season of any player who played in at least one game for your team. You can use any season of that player, regardless if the season you choose to use was with your franchise or not. All seasons of your franchise are available.
Artis Gilmore, old and decrepid for the Celtics will now be looming, rebounding giant Artis Gilmore for the Celtics. Lazy and out of shape Shawn Kemp of the Orlando Magic now becomes high-flying slam dunk machine Shawn Kemp for the Magic. You get the picture.

Once 24 owners have decided to join we will have a draft to decide teams. We will use this to decide draft order.


1.) DRAFT a franchise. You get any player who appeared in at least one game on that team in the history of the team. But you can use any season for that player, regardless of whether they played for your team or not (//www.basketball-reference.com/teams/), any year of that player that you like. No clones.
2.) You must use a arena from your franchise.
3.) You get $50 Mil to make your team, not the standard $42 mil.
4.) Must use a team name in franchise history. Keep it simple, EX: Oklahoma City Thunder, New Orleans Hornets, New York Nets.

Interesting league and was initially excited to join, but then realized I might end up with a team like the Raptors. YUK!

sample raptors roster:
billups/calderon/bogues/mark jackson

1/4/2013 12:43 PM
yeah i think i won 50 games with the nuggets a couple seasons ago. no team is a guaranteed winner or loser.
1/4/2013 6:04 PM
I'm in.

I've seen people screw up the lakers and Ive seen people win 50 games with the jazz, the twist plus the cap are really a nice mix to keep things just right
1/5/2013 12:40 AM
The Clippers and Knicks just got a lot better too.  I've only seen Chicago win once a couple of years ago.  Never seen LA win it. 

I'll commit to be in this league if it fills.
