    Hey everyone,
    @BonesJones and I were wondering if there is any interest in doing a mock off season for fun. This can be a really enjoyable experience but it does help if people are active in it. Here's how it would work:

    Everyone playing would be assigned a team (or two if we only have 15 teams) and you'd be the GM of your team with complete control over any transactions. We'd then set a date for our fake NBA Draft. Before and during the draft you would be allowed to make as many trades as you want as long as they work under the CBA. You take on your team's exact roster, draft picks, etc. If it goes well we could even find a way to do a fake free agency.

    As long as you are active and participate in it this type of thing is a lot of fun. It doesn't really matter how well you do as long as you are trying and don't just vanish so we have dormant teams. At the end we can compare rosters and see how everyone did and even revisit it at different points of the season or run 2K simulations to see what teams would win.

    If you want to try it all you have to do is respond and put your top 3 choices in teams and I will decide who gets what team. @Gronk Brady or @LayneStaley I'll even give one of you two a shot at being the Blazers if you want them. Go ahead and tag other people if you think they'd enjoy it. Do we have enough wannabe GM's out there?

    @TBpup I wanted to include you too if you want to play since you had discussed it with Bones.

    Could be fun. I'm willing to take teams nobody cares about like the Hornets or the Nets.

    I will give everyone their 1st choice (first come first serve) and then we'll discuss 2nd teams later if needed.

    How about this:

    Everyone who wants to be is in the drawing for Portland.

    Then everyone else lists 3 teams. Include everyone who wants a team in a drawing and draw foe that one. Start with the teams most sought after and work your way down.

    Could potentially turn this into an interesting video using my mock draft graphics.

    I'm fine with that for the Blazers, I don't care about the other teams.

    Beware! If you let him have the Blazers he'll let Nurkic just walk.

    Well that would be bad for him and good for whoever lands Nurk.

    He's played 5 playoff games. Not exactly a huge sample but your opinion is yours to have.
