Retro General Manager

Retro GM

Select episodes of In all Airness will feature ‘Retro GM’ contests. The suggestion is the brainchild of good friend, Todd Spehr. Episode 23 will spotlight the debut contest.

Each contest is between two (fake) General Managers; tasked with assembling the best possible team. The winning GM is decided by a listener vote, on my Facebook Page.

 

Retro GM: Guidelines

  • Selections alternate between each GM | 1st pick decided by a Virtual Coin Toss [draft format is subject to change]
  • Contests have a pre-defined date range | Example: 1987-1993
  • Players must have had an All-Star or All-NBA selection, within set period
  • Two-year rule | Players must have played at least 2 seasons within set period
  • Starting five chosen first; remaining seven players, selected irrespective of position

 

Episode 23 is available now. After listening to the selections, please be sure to vote for your preferred Retro GM team!
