NBA Mock Draft Game ($$)

Seeing if there would be any interest in a mock draft game for Thursday? I'd need a full first round mock draft submitted by 6:59 PM EST. 5 points for a correct pick, 4 points for being 1 pick off, etc. $20 entries with winner take all. Here's an example of how I did one (1-on-1) for the NFL this year.



I'll do it live on a shared Google Drive link so anyone can follow along to see who's winning.

Ok. I'll be gone literally all day today but you can PM me a list and I'm down even if it's just 1-on-1. Just by the time the draft starts tomorrow.

Everyone cool with $20? We can just do the honor system and send to whoever the winner is. I'll post here right at 7 the link to view the mocks in case any late joiners want to participate

Sounds good. I'm finalizing mine, so haven't checked any. I will use whichever the last one anyone sends so feel free to modify again if necessary.

Ok, Arles and Suicane, here's the link: NBA Mock Draft Game - Google Sheets

Let me know that it works. I'll try to be nearly as up to date as Woj. This was fun putting your lists next to mine - a nice mix of differences. Good luck

Chauncey Billups' player comparisons are great. I look forward to the entire 1st round of the draft being future Hall of Famers.

From 20 on was pretty rough for all of us. This is a lot harder than I thought

Sent the PM, thanks! He did the scoring based on the actual player. So, if you look at lines 24 and 26, you got 4 points for both guys.

Yeah, if you look at it as a whole it can be perplexing but the points are assigned from the draft position.

How did you all have Bamba at 5th but get different points for him?

Points were calculated based the player picked in the NBA draft, not the player picked in each of the mock drafts. So on the Bamba line for the 4th pick, Trae Young was actually picked.
  • Shorty had Young down at 11, so he got 0 points.
  • Arles had Young as the next pick, so he got 4 points.
  • Suicane had Young at 8, so he only got two points.

Thank you. It's the easiest way to do it across the board as the picks go. Basically the PTs column is points you earned at each overall selection. I don't know if there is a better way to display it, but if you followed along during the the draft I think it made pretty easy sense.

I'd be down. Don't think I have a chance of matching last year's good fortune though This year seasons like a massive crapshoot after 3

Looks like just me and jbergey22 this year unless we get more in the next few minutes. I'll accept submissions through the Zion pick
