At the Hive community mock draft introduction and sign up

New, comments

Let’s have some fun.

So we’re going to try something new here. We’re going to come together as a community and do a mock draft. Here’s how it’ll work.

  • We’ll use this post as a sort of sign-up sheet. We’ll start with one team per user. If a couple days pass and there are unclaimed teams, some people can double up. Teams are first come first serve.
  • We will vote on the Hornets selections as a community, meaning no one can sign up for them.
  • After all of the teams have been accounted for, I’ll make a new post where we can start making selections and talk about stuff. Teams can make their picks as soon as it’s their turn. Check back often, because if a day goes by without a pick, I’ll make the pick so the draft keeps on moving along.
  • Once we get to the twelfth pick, I’ll write another new post with a poll that’ll have every realistic option for the Hornets at twelve. We’ll leave that up for about a day so the community can speak.
  • After that pick is made, we’ll continue with picks 13 through 35 just like we did 1 through 11, and we’ll do another vote on the Hornets 36th pick. We’ll stop there, because the rest of the second round is a drag.

This may blow up and fail in spectacular fashion, but it’s the offseason. What better things are there to do?

So everybody head to the comments and put your dibs in on the team you want. Note that the Mavericks, Nuggets, Rockets, Clippers, Kings, and Raptors don’t have any picks before 36, so they won’t be a part of this exercise.
