    I know I'm totally stealing blueadams' thunder on this, but I think it would be a boatload of fun if we had a mock draft and had everyone vote on who the best team is. Is there any way we could possibly objectively rate who the winner is? No, but it would give us something fun to do and argue about later on; it will basically be pre-BCS college football.

    I figure the format will just be a standard snake draft (randomly generated order) and everyone post their picks in the draft thread created for it. Trades are okay by me.

    Sign me up. Just 5 picks per team? How do we determine draft order (first come first serve - me!?).

    Let's do all 12 picks. I'll randomize the order.

    I'm reviving a thought from way back here. The only fair and entertaining way to determine the winner would be to hold a tournament on a video game system where you can populate teams with historic players. You'd have to post the simulations on youtube and probably hold the tournament during the final 4 for maximum excitement. The computer would simulate the games fully with no players at the controllers. Not sure how feasible it is, but is sounds doable to me (even though I've been retired from video games for 10+ years now).

    It would look sort of like this:

    Video games tend to totally over rate superstars though, which is lame.

    But this mock draft would only be picking superstars. It's lame, but at least it has a luck element involved and doesn't come down to the opinion of some casual internet fan.

    I want to pick. I don't have any video games, though, so someone else would have to do the simulations.

    First we gotta decide which game is to be used and get a list of players that game has available. I don't think each game has every player. I might be wrong though, the last time I played a basketball game was on a Commodore Amiga.

    I guess you'd get to pick the year of the player too, right? Could you have 2004 Ben Wallace on your team and 2002 Rasheed Wallace?

    I am interest too if you agree unless you decide to go with a live draft.
    As I am in France, I don't want to wake up at 3.00 AM to do it !

    Haha no chance. You could nearly make 1 full squad, though it is very top-heavy. No natural SF's at all.
    Starters
    C - Andrew Bogut
    PF - Chris Anstey
    SF - David Andersen
    SG - Andrew Gaze
    PG - Patty Mills

    Bench
    SG - Shane Heal
    C - Luc Longley
    C - Luke Schenscher
    PF - Aron Baynes
    PF - Mark Bradtke
    PF - Nathan Jawai

    Had to put Andersen at SF cos he plays pretty soft - lots of jumpers and 3's. Otherwise you could go small ball and put Heal at SG and Gaze at SF. But the wing D would be pretty bad.
