I think MJ is a slam dunk #1, but 2-10ish is really up in the air and arguements could be made for a ton of different guys. Ill be very interested to see how this shakes out and who is available to me in the 2nd round.

1. Rigas- Michael Jordan
2. Orangeish- Magic Johnson
3. 719inhere- Kobe Bryant

Also, that Rigas selected Jordan means I'm going to knock the idea of selecting particular versions of players in the head. Otherwise everyone will pick a different version/year of Jordan lol.

Ok, Davy-040 is up. I am a little worried he might take a while as it looks like he is in Europe and he has not been active today on the forum. I sent him a DM to remind him.

I'm going to be MIA for a few hours. Hopefully we have some more picks by then

We have a trade to announce..... slackjaw has traded the rights to the 4th pick to Greg for his 5th round pick, next year's 2nd rnd pick, Greg Ostertag, and cash considerations...

(okay, just kidding, always wanted to announce my own draft day trade)


With the 4th pick in the CityData draft, slackjaw selects:

Spoiler


It's a small man draft!

LMAO at Slackjaw.... Ostertag? I'll take a bucket of KFC first Actually I do like the trade idea, we can implement that too as the rosters fill out.

1. Rigas- Michael Jordan
2. Orangeish- Magic Johnson
3. 719inhere- Kobe Bryant
4. Slackjaw- Larry Bird

Surprised at the lack of big man love myself, Orangeish....

Probably because there are about six that anyone could make an argument for.

Talent dropoff is more pronounced in the smalls.
