It came to me, yes it's a crazy idea, but I want to see what posters think of the idea. What if the NBA did an annual draft? No not the NBA draft where you get rookies. A draft where everyone becomes available. Where each team gets in the draft order depending on how good they were the previous year, and then everyone picks to where there spot was earned. If that were to happen this year the Nets would have LeBron James, The Timberwolves would have Dwyane Wade, and so on.
This could help prevent heart ache, because you don't have to plan on having your players every year, you don't have to anticipate is he going or staying? You know they may be gone unless your team draft them again. The main thing is though that their could always be that sense of hope and excitement, Who will we get this year? It would cause more hype than free-agency ever could.
This helps cities that no one wants to join via free-agency too. For example my team (Utah Jazz) has a very tough time getting big names to join the team. The cities that no one wants to join can also get the excitement of getting a big player like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kevin Durant, etc.
The main problem I see with it is, you can never fully, and truely bond with your team. You would be to busy trying to keep up with your new team yearly. Although this may prevent heart ache, I can see in a way how it could be the same, or even provoke it even more. Trying to sign contracts and figuring out how much each player is paid could be a pain and would need to be well thought out, and even things as simple as buying new jerseys each year could become pricy for the fans.
The question is, does anyone think that an NBA "Draft" yearly is a good idea? Hey i'm not saying it's a great idea and should for sure happen. I just thought I should see what the sports world thinks of the "Crazy" idea...

On this thread I will be starting a 2010 NBA Mock Draft for posters on the NBA boards, You can pick you favorite team or any team you want a draft for them in which manner you think would fit the team best. So everyone join in and pick a team, the draft will be when I let you know, as soon as all spots are full. You may take 2 teams if you wish.
Ok, here are the available teams, (Note: Some teams will not be in the draft because of trades.)

Ok so here is my mock draft for the 2010 NBA draft with analysis through the top 10, if you disagree (which many of you will since we have our own looks on it.) Feel free to comment and say what you think would happen, feel free to comment anything you want, ok here is my mock draft.
2. Philidelpia 76ers select, Evan Turner SG - Evan Turner was a top player in the nation last year, some argue that he was the best player in the nation, either way I think the 76ers take this solid, young rookie with the number 2 pick, although don't be surprised if they go with a big man either.
8. Los Angeles Clippers select, Greg Monroe, C - The Clippers could use a young C, Monroe and Blake Griffin together would be a good young duo, Monroe looks like a good pick for the Clippers, but they could also take Ed Davis or Ekpe Udoh.
11. New Orleans Hornets select, Ekpe Udoh, PF
12. Memphis Grizzlies select, Patrick Patterson, PF
13. Toronto Raptors select, Donatas Montiejunas, PF
14. Houston Rockets select, Gordon Hayward, SF
