Can't wait to lowball my way through the superstars and then late in the game offer up $170 for Kyle Lowry or something.

I can't wait to get started by bidding $175 on the first two-time All Star player I see on the list on the first day!

I like the idea of also ranking teams on the 3 year timeline as well - probably halfway thru the bidding process about half the teams won't have much of a chance to assemble a winning team for this year, so it gives them (let's be honest, me as well) something to work towards. I'd happily take the consolation prize of finishing 7th in the "3 year team" rankings when I finish 24th in the "1 year team" rankings.

Sweet, okay you're the last participant. Digger, if you see this and you still want to be part of a team I will see who is willing to have a co-GM. Sorry, just have to keep this running as smoothly as possible.

The players who you guys won will be posted each night around 10 PM or whenever I get all of the lists first. I'll have my e-mail in the OP as well as on each day's post so those without PM's can message me.

Also I'm changing the times a bit. I'll be posting lists anywhere from 7 AM EST to 1 PM EST just depending on my schedule. Today I should have it up pretty early.

Deadline to send your lists in each day will be at 9 PM EST instead of 10 PM EST. Day 1 it will still be at 10 PM because I changed it suddenly, but any day after that is going to be bumped down an hour.

I'll trade you the Sacramento Kings for the Atlanta Hawks. They're both kinda middling to pathetic franchises, but Atlanta is the only big American city I've been in for more than an hour or two, so I'll take it.

Reminders:

Send me a list of your bids via private messages or email: Commuziq@gmail.com. The current day's players will be posted here and in the OP.

  • You are not required to bid on any players each day as long as you finish with 15 by the end of the draft. If you decide not to bid on a particular day, please message me and let me know. Also I would be so grateful if everybody would include their team name somewhere in the email or message for ease.
  • Judging will be based on the ability to win this year but also in the near future (next 2-3 years). So, sustained winning.
  • Everybody has a max spending limit of $286 currently of your complete draft total of $300. Spend wisely. There are 18 days of players and an extra two days to finish your roster. Being too aggressive or too frugal may screw your team. But hey, there's trades that can be made, so you're not completely hosed if that ends up happening. I will only accept your first PM sent to me with your bids each day.
  • Your bids are due tonight at 10 PM EST and bids will be revealed at that point. Every day following today they will be due at 9 PM EST.
  • Players not bid on by anybody will re-enter a pool on the 19th and 20th days.
  • Have fun~

$300 is a tricky amount of money to deal with because it seems like it would be so easy to spend too much.

Can't wait for Lebron to show up on Day 18 and have a highest bid of $5.

The OP posted:

- Each GM will only be allowed to submit one bid per day. That official bid can be for as many players as that GM would like to sign but only the first submitted bid will be accepted.

To clarify - I read this as I can submit in my PM bids for multiple players, but even if I am the highest bidder on more than one player I would only win one auction and get one player. If I am the highest bidder on more than one player, how is it decided which one I win? The one I bid more money on? Or the order they are listed in the PM/Email? Or some other factor?

I think that means you can't change your bid after it's submitted, but you can submit bids for as many players as you want.

Oh yeah I get that. Just querying what happens if I bid $120 for Udonis Haslem but also $95 for Briante Webber and am the top bidder for both, how is decided which player I would get?

Which is kind of interesting if you want one of two guys that would fill the same role on your team and accidentally win them both.

You get every player you bid for and win, no exceptions.

Unless it brings you over $300.

Hearing someone worry that they are overpaying for Chinanu Onuaku makes me feel like I am going to get exactly 0 players today.

Here's hoping everyone sent in bids lower than mine on the players I want (and higher on the players I kinda regret putting in bids on).

And also I assume the winning bids will be posted daily? Or just who got the player? A lot of auction strategy is seeing how players are being valued.
