NDF 2010 Mock Draft Contest

Postby Kid Chocolate » Fri Jun 11, 2010 12:04 am

With the draft at Thursday, June 24th 7 PM EST, it's time to have a fun little mock draft contest for anyone who wishes to enter.

Showcase your mock drafts and how well you can predict who gets picked where.

Here are the rules.

Predict the first round of the NBA Draft.

Entries are to PM'ed to Kid Chocolate by 7 PM EST Thursday, June 24th. I'm having the mocks PM'ed to me so other people won't be able to see who has predicted what, and can't copy.

Scoring:

You are predicting what player gets picked in what spot, not which team picks him.
You get 1 point for every spot off you are with your picks.
Example: You predict the draft will go
1) Wall
2) Turner
3) Cousins
4) Favors
5) Johnson

and the actual order is
1) Wall
2) Favors
3) Turner
4) Johnson
5) Cousins

The scoring would be
1) 0
2) 1 (1 spot off)
3) 2 (2 spots off)
4) 2 (2 spot off)
5) 1 (1 spots off)

and so on. The maximum points you can get for a pick will be capped at 20 points.
If you have a player at #25 in your mock draft, and he gets picked 50th, you will get 20 points.

At 7 PM EST on Thursday (June 24), I'll post a link to a spreadsheet with all entries, so everyone can track their progress.

Lowest score wins. Any questions, feel free to ask!

I added DX & Chad Ford (espn's) final Mock's at the end to see how you compare to the "experts".
