Fantasy basketball mock draft: 10-team, head-to-head points

Our ESPN Fantasy Basketball experts came together for their first mock draft of the 2021-22 NBA season, taking part in a 10-team, head-to-head points league.

The whole draft took only 30 minutes — with 130 players picked in all — but in that time there were plenty of laughs, a few surprises and lots to be learned.

Note: If you’re new to fantasy hoops and looking to try it out for the first time, here is a tutorial of all the basics. From there, it’s easy to grab a handful of people, set up a draft and have some fun!

Now on to our 10-team H2H points mock. The participants, in order of draft position, were: Joe Kaiser, John Cregan, Ryan Smith, Eric Moody, Tom Carpenter, Keith Lipscomb, Jim McCormick, Kyle Soppe, Eric Karabell and André Snellings.
