With the actual draft just over 3 days away. I was interested to see how everyone thinks it will play out. I know there is an OPP Mock draft coming shortly (and i'm really looking forward to that), but that is what everyone thinks teams SHOULD do, not necessarily what they think they WILL do.
Therefore i was interested in coming up with a very rudimentary way of measuring who is the best at anticipating what WILL happen. Feel free to join in (or not).
Simply post the lottery draft order you think players will be selected at (from 1 to 14), ignoring any trades (i.e if Orlando trades down to 9 and selects Trey Burke then Burke is at 9).
Scoring is like this:
- 1 point for selecting a player in the lottery but at the wrong position (e.g. you pick Burke at 6 and he goes at 8)
- 3 points for selecting a player in the correct draft position (e.g. you pick Burke at 6 and he goes at 6)
- and since we have been focusing on it so much... 3 bonus points for selecting the correct player at number 2 (doesn't matter which team picks at this number in the end... it's all about the player)
Once the draft is over we can add up the points and work out who is the 2013 draft clairvoyant.
I have a feeling i will be close to last on this but i will kick it off...
