2016 Dynasty Draft Official Thread


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

Here are the rules (note this year's change on coaches):

1.  Draft Format: This is a fourteen round snake draft, so Draft order goes 1,2,3,4,...14, 15, 16, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11,...3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3,..

2. Eligibility: You can Draft anybody that is currently in the league or is or has been draft eligible. So players eligible for the 2016 draft can be drafted as can foreign players drafted in the past or draft eligible in the past who haven't played in the NBA. Players like Josh Jackson or Harry Giles are still not eligible for this draft because they are not and have never been draft eligible.  As a clarification, you can pick pretty much anyone to coach.

 3. Making Your Picks/Discussion and Debate: When it's your turn to draft, you just post (in bold) the player's name and you should do a writeup on why you chose that player. If you don't have time for a writeup, you can just make your selection to keep Draft moving and then post writeup later when you have time. Your writeup should explain why the player rules and how well they fit with your squad and why your team is now going to dominate the '10s. You should always pm the next person in the list after you pick.
AHF Team Pick: Shaquille O’Neal
I am taking Shaq to bolster my rebounding and interior defense. While he is getting older, he will be playing limited minutes on my roster behind Dwight Howard and will still be able to dominate smaller guys playing center like Al Horford [note: already selected so can be named] in the paint. Health is a concern but in round 11 there isn’t a lot of depth on the interior so this pick makes all the sense in the world.  Next person on the list has been PM'd

Discussion of picks is encouraged but do not discuss undrafted players to avoid influencing future picks. So, for example, if Wilt is picked #1 then it is a breach of draft etiquette to start discussion other available centers or how MJ is still available, etc. If you are explaining why you picked Wilt, you need to just generally address other available players or use the word "Player" as a substitute for someone specific.

 Example: AHF Team Selects:  Dominique Wilkins. I took Nique because he was so dominant in the playoffs, and I don't think that Player would hold up as well as him when guarded by other elite picks. Next person on the list has been PM'd.  (Note:  Nique would not be a good choice at all as explained below).

 We will keep a separate thread with a summary of all picks for easy reference.

 4. Time Frame/Finances: You get the player as they are and their projected potential/output for their projected career from here on out. So if you Draft Elton Brand, you are getting the 2016-17 Elton Brand who has a very limited number of years left. If you Draft someone from this years draft you might get a young player who may project to play for 10+ years at a high level. Assume for purposes of this draft that all players get paid 1/13th of your salary cap every year so that you don’t need to bypass Michael Conley for Emmanual Mudiay just because Conley is expensive and you already have several high salaries.  This applies equally to coaches.  

5. Roster: Each team gets 13 players and 1 coach, no restrictions on positions...draft 13 centers if you want; only 1 coach and that coach must be currently employed as a coach in the league (head, assistant or otherwise).

6. Evaluation Criteria: Draft as if you are starting a new franchise, so consider how your team will play into the future, not just year one. That said, you can choose to weight immediate success or long-term success as you wish.

7. Trades: Teams are free to trade players, coaches or picks but the total number of incoming and outgoing roster spots must be the same. I.e., you can trade your first round pick and fifth round pick for someone’s second and third round picks but can’t trade your first round pick for a second round pick and a tenth round pick. Trades are subject to review but will only be overturned where both a number of posters and the commish (AHF) feel the trade is so unfair that it could ruin balance. Basically, we want to avoid stacking one team up with lopsided trades but trades for fit or due to different projections of talent are fine.

8. Time Limits: We'll start off with an 8 hour time limit for each pick (see note on nighttime shutdown). So when the person before you picks, you have 8 hours from then to make your selection or you are skipped. If you are skipped, the next person's clock starts and they have 8 hours. You may make up skipped picks at any time. Just post who you want when you get back to the thread. We may decrease time limit if the draft drags to a crawl and people aren’t expected to take that long if they are available. Draft moving smoothly, but we'll decide that as a group.
One Caveat: The clock does not run from 10pm-7am EST. So if team 5 makes a selection at 9pm then team 6 has until 2pm the next day (1 hour until 10pm then 7 hours after 7am.)

Second Caveat:  If you miss your pick and make everyone wait 8 hours, if you haven't made that next pick you will only have 2 hours for your next pick.  Once you are current on your picks, you will get a full 8 hours again.

9. PM The Next Pick: You should PM the person after you when you make your pick so they know it's their turn. However, everyone should also follow along with the thread and know when they are up soon. Please make sure you have set your preferences to receive emails when you are PM’d.

10. Anticipated Absences – Advance Picks: If your pick is coming up soon and you'll be away, just ask in thread who will take your pm and be around to post it when it's your turn. I like to pm someone picking after me, and ideally someone that I have 2 picks before they go again so I can pm them 2 choices in case my top choice gets selected.

For the love of god can somebody copy n past the draft order here please...I can't find no classic theme on my phone


You are drafting 13th. Cap has 1st pick and is trying to move it. If no one offers him something he likes, he will make his pick at 7:00am when the draft officially starts.


I got rid of the cells in notepad, I think you will see it now.

This might freak a few peeps out but with my first pick Capstone's Crew selects 

Karl Anthony-Towns 

kid is the real deal ...  At just 20 years old, Karl dominates the C position and will be the best center next season ...  His  versatility will also allow him to switch over to PF ... towns is pure talent ... He finished his rookie season with 18.3 ppt / 10.5 rpg  and 1.7 bpg ... He hit at a .540 clip and even made 34% from three but the most impressive percentage stat is .811 from the line.   No hack a shaq with this big man ... You cant foul him or he makes you pay.  His d is also stellar .... After just his rookie season Towns has also showed a maturity and leadership skills many veterans envy ... Playing all 82 games he continued to improve as the season went on ... Scary what he will do this season ... He is the future of this league


welcome to the Crew Karl!

@PSSSHHHRRR87 has been pm'd

Views has reached out to not only capstone's club for their pick, but also 87's as he intends on making a move to secure that he gets the player he targeted once it was broken that his team would indeed be rewarded the 3rd overall selection in this draft. 

Speaking in the third person is just straight dope pimp shit in a dynasty draft no doubt doh...:-|

Hmmmm... Randomized huh... Mmmmkay 

Blame @Diesel and @lethalweapon3.  One scrambled the list of names, the other the numbers then I took the two lists and matched them up.  Since they bracket you I would say the only potential collusion was trying to get a weak drafter between them.
