A better question is, how do we go about with this dynasty thing next season, since I was resigned to being kept out of the playoffs and hopefully making noise in the lower bracket to get a high draft pick...

I've been thinking about this for a while because the reward of selecting first in the next draft for winning the consolation bracket can be in conflict with the keeper rules. For example, if I won the first overall pick but I want to keep my 2nd round player from this draft, I'd essentially be wasting the first overall pick next year on a keeper and my first "real" draft pick would be at the end of the second round. It kind of gives that person an unintended difficult decision.

Instead, I suggest every owner select their draft position in the draft order I outlined before the season (7th place, 8th place, etc.). I believe this more adequately rewards the winner of the consolation bracket. So if I finished 7th and I want to keep my 2nd round player, I should choose the 12th draft position to maximize my draft value. Furthermore, maybe the 8th place guy doesn't want to keep his 2nd round player, so then he'd have the chance to take the 1st draft position. I hope that makes sense.

Due to the suspension of the season, I think we should use this model based on the final standings as we have them now, except in a descending order. So Split would have his choice of a draft position first.

Honestly that feels way too complicated in the longer term. If someone doesn't want to get the #1 pick, it's much easier to lose a post season match up than it is to win one. They can easily tank their way out of the 7th place finish.

As for next season, I think there is some bragging right on the line to have finished #1 overall in the regular season too, but I'll go with the flow on how the draft order would be determined for next season.

I disagree on both :lol:.

I don't think it's all that complicated. I think the adjustment I outlined is the best way to reward active owners who probably just had an unlucky season. Winning the consolation bracket earns the right to chose a draft position first. Sure it might take a few days for everyone to be on the ball and make their selections here, but there's always enough time for that stuff and other measures like a time limit could be implemented to keep it from being drawn out too long.

I don't think there's really any bragging rights for finishing #1 in the standings this season. As a joke, sure, it would be kind of funny if Split was out here bragging about winning the league or something.

If the NBA never resumes this season, is anyone going to call the Bucks the 2019-20 NBA champions?
