Surprised by the lack of comments regarding extra rounds and expanded playoffs. If people don't want to or can't do this, we don't have to. The staff here at CS just thought it might be a fun way to help kill all the extra time we all have on our hands.

Feedback?

My feedback is this is totally awesome and the best way to finish off the game. I love it. Very appreciative of you for offering this up too as I imagine it makes WAY more "work" for you. (More TPs) But this is going to be a great ending with nice build up leading up to it and I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks dude!

I also know how important it is that everyone keeps voting until the end so you can certainly count on me to follow along after (errr, if!) I get eliminated.

I am not that interested in the expanded playoffs. Never thought they added much to things. I thought past drafts have shown less is more when it comes to that.

Extra rounds = that's cool.

That said, I am happy to go along with whatever other people want.

Willing to trade up from 5.12 and would be willing to move down from either 6.3 and 8.3, or for both, depending on the deals being offered.

Rumor Mill:  Sources indicate that Milwaukee and the Thunder have agreed to a trade, pending league approval.  The pieces are unclear, but GM Roy H. is a known believer in Paul Pierce, while OKC is known to covet Giannis Antetokounmpo.  A deal could bring Milwaukee more shooting and depth, while offering the Thunder the superstar they lack.

Details to follow, with the deal likely to be consummated tomorrow AM.

Round 4 really cleaned up my draft board.  Lots of players got taken that I thought should go.  Left on my board is:
1 first round player
2 second round players
1 third round player
2 fourth round players

So only 6 players have been drafted that I didn't consider a top 4 round player.  Well done, gang.

I'm fine with anything that doesn't involve doing stuff in May (I have end of semester exams).

So there are 5 players I'm wondering when they'll get drafted.  Each on the basis of their talent should have already been drafted but I'm guessing all have at least a few critics for various reasons.  Two are former Bruins, one a Blue Devil, one a Tar Heel, and one a Hoya.  I'm interested to see who will nab one of these highly talented players before it's too late.

The Hoya is the one I am interested in. I believe he'd be a lot more efficient in the league today because of all the extra spacing for ball-handlers and weaker defenses.

I had him pegged as a 2nd rounder playing next to a dominant big. I had trouble being happy with the rest of the lineup though - which is why I guess nobody has taken him yet.

Yeah, I believe you could take him and 3 other players right now and have a pretty darn good team.  One that would be competitive with the teams that have been drafting all along.  Not as good, but wouldn't be way so different looking either.
