Not the most knowledgeable person on this topic but sure sign me up. Any draft would do. Need that draft hit.

I think I know enough to put together a strong team.

Should there be a required distribution of guards, forwards and centres the way you'd have required positions in a football team draft?

Yes, I would suggest at least two players to cover each position: point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and center.

Personally, positions arenít essential I donít think. If you want to try and use LeBron as the point you can argue your case. Same as if you want Draymond Green at the 5.

I know names but not positions. And most of my selections would be based on NBA Jam from 1998 so I think Iíll sit this one out assuming you get enough people in from elsewhere.

Maybe just four guards, four forwards and two centres would be a decent midpoint?

We're building a roster who can dominate in the 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s or 20s, so Ewing is a very good pick. He shon in the golden era of big men (great rim protector with solid post moves + mid-range ability).

@Fiasco - "LeBron James ?, Isiah Thomas ?, Patrick Ewing ?"

When possible, select your 4 year peaks for each player.

Curious to see what version of LeBron you choose.

My bad, I didn't see that part of the draft as I came in to it late. I'll make the distinctions now :)


That makes it harder mind you! But better of course with more thought going into it.
