View Full Version : All time NBA Expansion Draft

Here's the dealio. One player can be picked from a franchise, after that, no one else from that franchise can be picked. With players being on different teams through their careers, you must pick a specific season.

Like with Lebron, if you pick 2020 Lebron, he would be the Lakers pick. You CANNOT pick Lebron from the Cavs or Heat, naturally.

With 30 teams, we can only have 5 or 6 participants. 5 means you get a starting 5 and a 6th man. 6 teams obviously just means a starting 5.

I was THINKING at the end, all votes get sent to someone and the top 2 would face off in a championship match with votes. Could post the link in the NBA thread and keep it open a few days.


1) Scottyboy
2) Greatest hockey goalie of all time
3) Kyle
4) OSU
5) Fernando
6) SP

Why not

Fernando
05-25-2020, 04:42 PM
This would be infinitely more fun if the “one franchise” rule only applied on a per team basis not overall.

SP
05-25-2020, 05:08 PM
Yh and more ppl would be allowed in

Brodie
05-25-2020, 06:29 PM
Yeah I think it's better to just limit it to one franchise per person. So no taking multiple Lakers but you could take LeBron with the Cavs and Rick Fox with the Lakers

Kyle
05-25-2020, 06:31 PM
Ha, Brodie showed his hand. Rick Fox will be mine.

Brodie
05-25-2020, 07:10 PM
My current assumption

Lakers- Rick Fox
Pistons- Vinnie Johnson
Cavs- Craig Ehlo
Knicks- Charlie Ward
Heat- Udonis Haslem
Nets- Sean Williams

SP
05-25-2020, 11:02 PM
anyways i'm in

scottyboy
05-25-2020, 11:31 PM
This would be infinitely more fun if the “one franchise” rule only applied on a per team basis not overall.

I guess, but that makes it way easier and not too much different than a regular all time draft

SP
05-25-2020, 11:38 PM
A lot of players have played for a lot of different teams tho eg taking Shaq completely changes how you're gonna pick for the rest of the draft.

edit: or is what you're saying is if you pick shaq from 2000 then you can pick other players who have played for the celtics/heat etc? hmm

scottyboy
05-25-2020, 11:44 PM

Is that what Fernando was saying or more towards what Brodie was saying?

If THAT'S what he meant, yeah that's a cool idea. If it's what Brodie said with his example, that's kinda lame

SP

it's what I assumed he was saying just because that's what all of those football team challenges have been based on haha

Brodie
05-26-2020, 12:44 AM
But the thing is if you take Shaq and immediately cannot take another Laker, another Heat, another Cav, another Magic, another Celtic, another Sun...that's kind of absurd. It makes Dirk intensely valuable but still.

that's what makes it fun and different and harder. that's the point. otherwise it'd just be a regular all time draft with like, a minor adjustment.

Brodie

I mean I'm in regardless, up to you people how you wanna go.

Fernando
05-26-2020, 01:25 PM
that's what makes it fun and different and harder. that's the point. otherwise it'd just be a regular all time draft with like, a minor adjustment.

I mean, the idea behind this draft was that any one person couldn’t pick someone from the same team. That’s what makes it individually challenging. Making this a 30 player pool seems unnecessarily complicated. The last few rounds are gonna be miserable.

oh yeah which is hilarious. making people pick someone pick like Emeka Okafor.

But I like the idea of if a player played for multiple franchises, all the ones the played for count. So if you pick Lebron, you can't have any other players who played for the Lakers, Cavs or Heat.

That's what we're going with. We can have more people sign up. Hope to start it tonight or tomorrow morning if that's gucci with everyone?

Fernando
05-26-2020, 02:26 PM
I don’t mean to be a dick but I’m out of we’re doing that. It’s gonna require more time than I can commit to right now.

Edit - your nba thread post has now confused the fuck out of me. Let’s get some clarification on the rules so we can get this started at some point.

OSUGiants
05-26-2020, 02:52 PM
So are we not specifying the year we’re taking them from then? Cause if taking Shaq means I can’t take any Magic, Lakers, Heat, Cavs, Suns, or Celtics, then why bother specifying a year where people can nitpick stat lines instead of just assuming it’s prime Shaq.

I kinda preferred the: state a year, eliminate a team from the collective pool idea. So like 96 MJ going 1 overall would mean nobody could take a player on the bulls again, they’d be forced to take like Trailblazers Pippen or some shit.

I’m in either way, I just want some clarity on the rules

scottyboy
05-26-2020, 05:58 PM
If we do the original idea, it'd be a certain year. If not, then no.

The options are:

1) Total expansion draft. One player to represent a franchise.
SO if you picked Lebron with the cavs, someone can still take a Heat or Lakers player. But no other cavs player can be picked. `(ala Cavs Boobie Gipson)
That was the original idea and what OSU said

2) This one is what I think I interpreted as Fernando's original idea (but could be wrong)
Franchise options is limited by person. So if you picked Lebron, you can't pick a Heat, Cavs or Lakers player. But they're still open to anyone else.

3). Brodie's idea - Limited to one person per franchise, but only the team you pick them with. So you could have Cavs Lebron and Lakers Chris Mihm

scottyboy
05-26-2020, 05:59 PM

even with this, you wouldn't need year specific. You could just say "Bulls Jordan" or "Cavs Lebron" and that just means no one else can pick a player to represent the Cavs or Bulls. Like you wouldn't need a specific year for guys like Dirk or Bird etc

OSUGiants
05-26-2020, 06:21 PM
I like 1 & 3 the most

05-26-2020, 08:49 PM

I like 1 or 2

Fernando
05-26-2020, 11:19 PM
I’ll join only under 2. I’m gonna lose interest when all the Celtics, Lakers, Bulls and Warriors are gone before my first pick.

Brodie
05-26-2020, 11:43 PM
Whichever you guys want, I can adjust to any scenario.

SP
05-27-2020, 03:45 AM
Yh I'm 2 but happy to go with any

scottyboy
05-27-2020, 11:45 AM
#2 it is.

(We could even do #1 after very quickly if people wanted since it's limited rounds).

Since this takes a limit off, maybe do 8 rounds? starters and 3 bench? Then we can rock and maybe, perhaps, even roll

Kyle
05-27-2020, 01:05 PM
If we're rocking AND rolling I'm sorry but I'm out.

scottyboy
05-27-2020, 01:51 PM
If we're rocking AND rolling I'm sorry but I'm out.

Fine. Just rock.

It'll be either 6 or 8 rounds. Once we do that, I'll make the thread around noon 30 or 1

Brodie
05-27-2020, 02:19 PM
With the first pick, I take

Patrick Ewing, C, Orlando Magic

OSUGiants
05-27-2020, 03:21 PM
Sorry, I don’t rock, I only roll

Fernando
05-27-2020, 03:21 PM
Alright sign me up. Text me or twitter me if I’m up for a pick.

SP
05-27-2020, 03:39 PM
3 bench players!

Brodie
05-27-2020, 03:53 PM
Are we counting Durant as a Net eliminator since he hasn't yet played a game but has signed there

Fernando
05-27-2020, 04:08 PM
I say yes only cause there isn’t a single Net in history worthy of this draft.

scottyboy
05-27-2020, 04:23 PM
I say yes only cause there isn’t a single Net in history worthy of this draft.

Fernando's first pick is Richard Jefferson, ruling out the Nets, Bucks, Spurs, Warriors, Jazz, Mavs, Cavs and Nuggets

scottyboy
05-27-2020, 04:31 PM
order is up. thread posted. Fernando has pick 1 so just give him RJ.

Most of us are also accessible via textual message or twitter so that's coolio

Brodie
05-27-2020, 05:35 PM
Scotty go bug Fernando on Twitter!

OSUGiants
05-27-2020, 06:02 PM
Scotty you’ve got my # so just text me after Fernando picks

Fernando
05-27-2020, 06:23 PM
Scotty go bug Fernando on Twitter!

You literally follow me you clown. Why couldn’t you let me know

Brodie
05-27-2020, 07:38 PM
You literally follow me you clown. Why couldn’t you let me know

Because I always do this in drafts, I am taking a break *leans back*

that and I don't know how to reach Xavier

Kyle
05-27-2020, 07:46 PM
Its 8:46 in the UK. If he goes to bed without picking he's getting Joe Smith and knocking out 12 teams.

SP
05-27-2020, 07:54 PM
suck it

Brodie
05-27-2020, 07:59 PM
At least pick before you say that

Kyle
05-27-2020, 09:01 PM
For the handful of olds that might be drafted, how are we handling teams moving? Do the Buffalo Braves count as the Clippers?

Brodie
05-27-2020, 09:13 PM
Yes probably

Fernando
05-27-2020, 09:22 PM
Fuck off Corey.

Fernando
05-27-2020, 10:36 PM
This is gonna take a month to finish.

SP
05-27-2020, 10:38 PM
Scotty can't pick my guy anyways so shall I just post mine?

SP
05-27-2020, 10:47 PM
peak steph and peak shaq good luck ppl

Brodie
05-27-2020, 10:48 PM
It works but it takes you out of a fuckton of options because of how many teams Shaq played on.

SP
05-27-2020, 10:53 PM
I think there's gonna be enough guys left to make it work

scottyboy
05-27-2020, 11:00 PM
sorry guys, unexpectedly busy today. my college classes started up yesterday but gucci now. Pick up in a minute

Brodie
05-27-2020, 11:02 PM
SP if you go to bed leave me a list since I'll be up until like 3 AM as usual

SP
05-27-2020, 11:04 PM
so you can steal my players again huh, can't fool me twice corey!

Brodie
05-27-2020, 11:06 PM
I did not do that!

SP
05-27-2020, 11:07 PM
;)

but yh I'll make my next pick and then see where it's at before I sleep

scottyboy
05-27-2020, 11:18 PM
I updated the thread and texted OSU

Fernando
05-27-2020, 11:42 PM
Hmmmmm

SP
05-27-2020, 11:44 PM
Hmmmmm

would you have picked shaq? you were the only person left that could've but I couldn't risk it lol

Fernando
05-27-2020, 11:49 PM
would you have picked shaq? you were the only person left that could've but I couldn't risk it lol

I wanted him, didn’t think he’d last, but he kinda fucks it up a little bit with the tail end of his career.

Kyle
05-28-2020, 12:21 AM
I may have fucked up someone's team history and destroyed my whole plan. Picks coming soon.

scottyboy
05-28-2020, 12:25 AM
there are so many dudes who it's like "wtf why did you play on those teams your last two years, you jerk"

Brodie
05-28-2020, 12:28 AM
Pippen's pointless Rockets year made it hard to take him but alas

Oh yeah everyone has already taken a Laker so I'm taking Kobe in the last round, just to clear that up.

Fernando
05-28-2020, 12:48 AM
Damnit Giannis was a good pick.

scottyboy
05-28-2020, 01:31 AM
oh fuck you brodie, ugh

Giannis was the only reason I hesitated with Kareem tbh

Fernando
05-28-2020, 01:38 AM
Wade was also with the Cavs

Brodie
05-28-2020, 01:40 AM
Can you put Kobe at my round 8 pick just so I can continue to poke at it

Fernando
05-28-2020, 01:44 AM
I thought SP was gonna leave a big board?

Brodie
05-28-2020, 01:46 AM
He's still up I think

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 01:49 AM
So many guys with wasted seasons on random teams, this is a lot harder than I first thought

SP
05-28-2020, 01:52 AM
blahhhh

Fernando
05-28-2020, 01:58 AM
So many guys with wasted seasons on random teams, this is a lot harder than I first thought

Which is exactly why I wanted it this format. This is hard enough.

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 01:59 AM
Fucking everyone had at least one season on the lakers

Fernando
05-28-2020, 02:00 AM
Yup, you had to use a good Laker pick because of it.

Brodie
05-28-2020, 02:04 AM
Karl Malone and KG won't be drafted because of the format. Shame for KG, laugh at Karl.

TACKS
05-28-2020, 02:08 AM
Scotty you really shouldn't have let Fernando peer pressure you into this goofy format. Your original idea was way better.

Fernando
05-28-2020, 02:11 AM
Scotty you really shouldn't have let Fernando peer pressure you into this goofy format. Your original idea was way better.

Karl Malone and KG won't be drafted because of the format. Shame for KG, laugh at Karl.

KG is the guy i plannned on drafting as a timberwolf/celtic in the 3rd round and completely forgot he was a net.

Brodie
05-28-2020, 02:18 AM
Shit I didn't realize OSU had room for KG. Dammit.

Fernando
05-28-2020, 02:19 AM

KG was always on my radar, but the Uncut Gems gif with the selection was a fuck you to Corey. One of my all time favorite players so I wasn’t going to forget about him

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 02:21 AM
Kinda regret Hakeem cause it means I couldn’t take CP3, but there’s going to be so many good centers here I couldn’t settle for a small lineup. My pick will be up in a minute

Brodie
05-28-2020, 02:22 AM
CP3 would have been my pick if Pippen hadn't played for the Rockets. Ah well, I don't need a ball dominant dude when Kobe is my 2 anyways.

Fernando
05-28-2020, 02:25 AM
Too many HOF PG’s spent their washed years ring chasing. Had to go all in somewhere.

Kyle
05-28-2020, 02:25 AM
Brodie we all know you're taking Eddie Jones over Kobe just stop it.

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 02:41 AM
I’m torn between 2 players but I might as well complete my starting 5 with a guard who only played for 1 team

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 02:43 AM
Staring 5:
PG: Dame Lillard (Blazers), Isiah Thomas (Pistons)
SG: Klay Thompson (Warriors), George Gervin (Spurs, Bulls)
SF: LeBron James (Cavs, Heat, Lakers), George Gervin (Spurs, Bulls)
PF: Kevin Garnett (T-Wolves, Celtics, Nets)
C: Hakeem Olajuwon (Rockets, Raptors)

Picks left: 1
Teams left: 17

Brodie
05-28-2020, 02:59 AM
SP go to bed! And Scotty pick cause I want to go two more times tonight

Fernando
05-28-2020, 03:01 AM
Bill Russell would have KAT in a headlock all game.

Kyle
05-28-2020, 03:12 AM
The Wolves are so goddamn useless historically and KAT is so goddamn historically good offensively so sure why not.

Brodie
05-28-2020, 03:13 AM

05-28-2020, 01:09 PM
Scotty you really shouldn't have let Fernando peer pressure you into this goofy format. Your original idea was way better.

I honestly feel this is more difficult than the first idea would've been.

But I'm SO down to do another one with true expansion format. It'd only be 30 picks so it would go quickly. Would just need 4 other people. 5 teams of 6. Bada bing bada boom

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 02:26 PM
Forgot how many dudes got sucked into playing for those 2007-09 Cavs teams to help LeBron and now they’re all off my board

Brodie
05-28-2020, 02:51 PM
Kyle you can't take T-Mac, he was on the Spurs.

Kyle
05-28-2020, 02:53 PM
Fuck this game. I can't even trust basketball reference anymore?

Brodie
05-28-2020, 02:54 PM
it was only for the playoffs for a few games, it's mostly a technicality but welcome to the hell world

Brodie
05-28-2020, 03:09 PM
my last two picks cannot be taken by any other team so i could theoretically just grab them now

Kyle
05-28-2020, 03:32 PM
Harden probably fell too far, but its the SuperThunder what can ya do

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 03:46 PM
Seeing as how everyone but Corey has their lakers pick and he plans on taking Kobe, that means Gary Payton & Rodman will both go undrafted which is a damn shame. Greatest defensive point guard of all time

Brodie
05-28-2020, 03:52 PM
My second to last pick is Mark Price by the way, so you people know where you're operating from (everyone has a Warrior but Scotty and Scotty has a Cav, so nobody can take him).

Fernando
05-28-2020, 04:21 PM
I wanted Isiah but I really thought about the chemistry part.

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 04:28 PM
Yea I probably should’ve taken him with my next pick cause I’m worried you’re about to snipe the guy at the top of my board

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 04:35 PM
There’s a few very old school guys I keep considering but it’s so hard to see their game translating to today. The 3pt shot has just evolved so much that I don’t know if I can really prioritize guys who made their living off awkward midrange jumpers and finger rolls

Fernando
05-28-2020, 04:44 PM
Yea I probably should’ve taken him with my next pick cause I’m worried you’re about to snipe the guy at the top of my board

Hope it wasn’t one of those guys.

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 04:45 PM
Fucking knew I shouldn’t have waited on Ginobili give me a little to search for my pick. Fuck you nando

Fernando
05-28-2020, 04:50 PM
Gotta strategize bro, I had no need for a PG.

scottyboy
05-28-2020, 04:54 PM
Ah, Manu was one of the 2 guys I wanted with my next pick. Nice one. Hopefully my other guy still falls

Fernando
05-28-2020, 04:55 PM
I’m shocked he wasn’t taken earlier tbh, he’s so highly regarded and a lifelong Spur.

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 04:59 PM
Gotta strategize bro, I had no need for a PG.

You just took Penny fucking Hardaway, you did need another PG

scottyboy
05-28-2020, 04:59 PM
I could see how Manu and Penny both fit better with CP3 as opposed to Thomas, but it IS hilarious that he picked two guys who are damn good ball handlers hahaha

OSUGiants
05-28-2020, 05:02 PM
Not to mention, with Wilt, Dirk, and Bill Russell, he definitely needed another PG. I just should’ve known that the guy from Texas was going to prioritization Manu the same way I knew he’d snipe Dirk from me

Brodie
05-28-2020, 05:05 PM
I don't even have a point guard on my roster until I take Mark Price shortly.

i like your team over brodie's but i reckon you need better shooters around your best 2 players. in other words, i'd somehow get peja on the floor over havlicek or giannis/david

on second glance, it's pretty even.

Kyle

Hondo could shoot he just didn't have a 3 point line, KD can shoot a little too. The layup/dunk is still the best shot in basketball.

Best 3 pt shooter in the league last year and in everyone's hearts. Even with me rigging the voting in your favor, the results are in. Top 2 vote getters are

Steph
Harden
Kawhi
KAT
Shaq

is a deadly lineup. Him having Schayes & Moncrief starting made me consider putting him lower, but that lineup is great. Your team was way too big for my liking. Scotty lacked that 1 player who can take over a game and dominate. That’s how I got Kyle and Corey as my top 2 and then I had to nitpick between the two for the top spot.

Brodie

Kyle

SP has some crazy offensive firepower but with everyone having the perimeter weapons they do its easy to take advantage of a KAT/Shaq defensive frontcourt. I had to deduct for Dolph Schayes too, I'm sorry that's just how I was raised.

Picks left: 0
Teams left: 16

These teams are all stacked

My (quick) case against OSU:

Team is built around the best passer of all time and a full roster full of guys who excel on the fast break and attacking the rim, along with arguably the best perimeter scorer of all time in Durant. Between KD/Peja/Hondo there is elite level shooters to spread the floor.

We'll live in the open court and the FT line, and on defense there probably hasn't ever been a team with as much length. Giannis and Admiral is a great 1-2 punch of rim protectors to contain Dream in the post and Lebron drives, and Frazier/Hondo were perennial All Defensive team members to take defensive pressure off of Magic.

Hakeem > Robinson every time they met in the playoffs. Lillard & Klay can hit 3s from anywhere while LeBron plays point forward, staying healthy thanks to KG and Dream doing his dirty work down low. Not to mention Klay is a hound on defense and KG is one of the greatest defenders of all time. Jokic off the bench, and even KG to an extent, can shoot the 3 and pass incredibly well to help space the floor and give LeBron room to drive. If the lane clogs up Klay is one of the best catch & release shooters of all time and both he and Dame can splash from the parking lot.

The insane range of my back court with a front court of KG/Dream and the versatility of LeGoat makes my offense impossible to stop.

My weakest player on defense is Dame, but if I switch Klay onto Magic and ask Dame to slow down Havlicek he’ll be fine. LeBron and KG match up well defensively against KD/Giannis and we already know how Dream handles The Admiral.

I’m sure someone else could make these points better but I’m high and my teams the best. Vote OSU and donate to the Minnesota freedom fund & Louisville community bail fund. Thanks

My one thing is that Clyde should 100% be starting as Hondo came off the bench all the time anyways. I think if you make that change, the biggest issue is the Magic/Dame problem. You could contain Magic more by re-arranging LeBron onto him, but then what do you do with Durant? His length would also be a problem with Klay.

I do like OSU's bench better though. Bleh.
