If you go to espn fantasy basketball go to auction type draft when you look for a lobby. And its pretty wierd really. People nominate a player like I can nominate Lebron James and I start the bid with 40 dollars and then everyone else is can bet on him to get him and the person with the highest bid gets him. then so and so picks the next player and the samething again. But whats sucks is that you only start off with 200 dollars. For example I spent 101 on dwade and then 80 on cp3 that left me with 19 dollars which made my draft diffcult not being able to be as much as others. its really entertaining but you have to be smart about it.

Auction style sounds fun lol. If anything you're missing guys who would be around the 40 dollars range but it might be interesting because Wade and Paul get nearly triple doubles. Lamar's production will do down because of Artest I think, and Eddy Curry will be behind David Lee in production. The other guys are solid backups and will produce fine. If you do struggle in the beginning look to trade Paul/filler for 2-3 mid guys like Rashard Lewis/Ray Allen/VC/Al Jefferson/Josh Smith/Joe Johnson.........shop around lol...good luck I draft this week I'll post my team up.
