    As for now, we're doing an 8-man tournament, but if more people want to participate, then I'll increase it to 16. Also, we need three judges. Simply post in this thread if you want to be a part of the NBA debate contest. </p>

    I'll participate. But isn't this similar to the Around the Horn we have going on (or had going on?)

    No, it actually isn't. That was for points, and in that contest, it was everyone for themselves, not 1-on-1 debating a topic like this one. You'll see the difference once we start this up. </p>

    Zards maybe you should move to being a judge unless you really want to debate, you're going to be making all the topics for the debates and running the entire contest, don't you think it will be a bit much to also debate especially with school starting in a week. It will also be easier to find 2 more debaters rather than 2 more judges.

    I'm happy to be judge.</p>

    Note: I deduct mega points for using ridiculous player comparisons.</p>

    Thanks for the help on this, GA. Anyways, what I'm going to do is post the matchups in a separate thread in this board, and the way I'm going to do it is picking random names out of a hat... because that always seemed the best solution to me. After I post the matchups, then I will PM every debater and give them three topics to debate on and they have to rank the topics in which one the want to debate. After I get all the debaters' decisions, I will then post the debate topics and give everyone a deadline for ending their debate.
