NDF 2011 Mock Draft Contest

Postby Kid Chocolate » Thu Jun 16, 2011 3:06 am

It's that time again!

With the draft at Thursday, June 23rd 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 23rd. 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) Irving
2) Kanter
3) Williams
4) Knight
5) Valanciunas

and the actual order is
1) Irving
2) Knight
3) Kanter
4) Valanciunas
5) Williams
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 23), 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!

A little enthusiasm is what I like to see!

I'm sure MNFL will be around to avenge his disastrous last place finish.

I will do terrible this year, but I'll still try.

Rick Jackson is going in the lottery, you can quote me on that.

WTH? Did you just fix that while I was posting?

Edit: I see. It's right the first time but not the second two. For a second I thought I needed to change my work schedule!

Trying to predict this draft is insane.... so weak and so many areas teams could go with....

But I will endure!

This draft seems very volatile. No idea what's going to happen, even in the top 3.
