Welcome to the ABA Draft!
Good luck to all participants. I've run a few similar drafts before but this is the first time i've run multiple rounds with all options in play each round, so it promises to be a lot of fun.
You'll be designing a basketball team including a white based home uniform, colour based away uniform and a logo you've designed yourself. All will be included in 1 image, as per last season. The only design guidelines are that you must put the ABA logo on the left shoulder and right hip. Manufacturer logos can go wherever you want.
I'm going to give people a lot of freedom in terms of display. The only thing you're required to display is the front view of the each jersey, but you can display back views, shorts, socks and accessories as you please.
The colour you choose will be your team's primary colour. It will need to be the base of your away uniform and the most prominent colour apart from white on your home uniform. Secondary colours are totally up to you. I'm not going to specify shades, but please try to stick to your selected colour, I don't want to see metallic gold if you pick yellow, for example, and I don't want your purple to be too blue.
Your team is to be located within the boundaries of your selected location, however it doesn't have to be named exactly what is listed on the board. It could be named after the city itself, the state, the region, or even a prominent suburb. For example, the Hobart side could be "Hobart" or "Tasmania". Both Melbourne sides could be called "Melbourne", with different nicknames. Similarly, both Sydney sides could be called "Sydney", but the Western Sydney side can't be called "Sydney City", or "Bondi". If you're unsure, send me a message to ask.
The nickname you select is your nickname. No variations on it. You must base the theme of your identity around your selected nickname. I don't want to see people pick Echidnas then have no reference to Echidnas in their logo/wordmark/uniform etc.
We have 12 participants, starting with Moosen . The draft does not snake, the order will remain the same over the 3 rounds.
Over the 3 rounds of the draft, you are required to pick 1 colour, 1 location and 1 nickname. Nobody pick 2 colours please, just one of each. What round you pick each option is totally up to you.
You have a maximum of 24 hours to make your pick from the time you are tagged, after which it goes to the next person on the list. If you don't pick within that timeframe and people after you on the list start making selections, you can select whenever you get to the thread.
If you mess up a selection ie pick something that has already been selected, your pick is invalid and you'll be required to pick again from whatever is remaining when you realised you've messed up.
When you have drafted, can you please tag the next person on the list so they are aware it's their pick. I'll periodically repost the list of what is remaining in each category, but the onus is on you to ensure that what you're selecting is still available and your pick is valid.
I'll adjudicate on any disputes, but it's pretty straightforward.

Remember after 3 rounds you need to select 1 option from each column. I'll try to cross off the options as they are selected, but it's your responsibility to make sure what you're selecting is still available.
