    Alright guys, the season is upon us. Who is up for a little fantasy Basketball? I mostly play on Yahoo, but am open to ESPN as well. It's gonna be a Rotisserie league, with a normal Live Draft. I played last year, but mostly with idiots and half the guys in the league didn't even make any moves and just left their teams as is for the whole season, auto drafted and everything.


    I know everyone here knows about basketball so I wanna play with you guys.

    Let's get a general idea of how many people are there, then we'll sorta vote on Yahoo or ESPN. I personally am used to Yahoo, haven't tried ESPN but don't really care.

    Gonna be good times.

    Alright guys, I decided on ESPN. All the normal stats are counted, plus Turnovers and 3FG%. I flirted with the idea of Double Doubles and then decided against it.

    I need email addresses to invite whoever is interested, so please message them to me.

    Insulting other users is known as flaming and it is not acceptable is web etiquette.


    BTW any post made about Batum in the Batum watch thread is not trolling. 


    Or suggesting trading Batum in a thread about off season moves or trade proposals is also not trolling. 


    Playing with people who insult others is not fun either. Unless of course they are trash talking.

    Sorry RC, I don't play fantasy basketball but look forward to reading your thread about it. Question, why do you need email adds to play? Is it a league or something? Just curious. Do you play against each other and what's the format for elimination? Maybe I can learn about it from you folks.

    @ Blazer Fanatic, won't u pls reconsider, cmeese47 isn't the only 1 you'll b up against; you WILL face ACTUAL COMPETITION (friendly BUT ruthless!  Hahaha! ;) w/ ACTUAL knowledge; your path to glory is not a given ;)  We need u; I believe that u r our most knowledgeable Blazer/NBA fan/source.  If 1 is to b the best, they MUST go up against the best, u r the best/brightest (I don't think I'm alone in that thought ;)  Wudda u say Blazer Fanatic?

I'm gonna have to take u (AND any1 else that will oppose me) down!  Hahaha! ;)

     

    ps IF we can reel in the biggest Blazer brain... THIS will give the fantasy league some street cred. AND then there will b others that will follow i.e. Siccolo & etc. (maybe commontongue)!  Hahaha! ;p

    And Riverman, yes it's a private league, so to invite people, I need their email addresses. I'll explain how it works.


    In my league, I have set a limit of twelve teams. Once this limit is reached, we schedule a live draft which we all do online at the same time. It's in a snake order. Snake order means that if you get Rd 1 Pick 1, you get Rd 2 pick 12, Rd 3 pick 1, and so on and so forth. So everybody gets to select whatever players they want, if you miss the draft, your team will autodraft, meaning it will just the best player available, based on ESPN ranking. That's pretty bad since you could end up with all PGs or something.


    Now for the scoring. I have selected a few categories to be scored. Let's say rebounds. Remember how there are 12 teams, if my team has the most rebounds total with 789, and the guy after me has the second most with 765, and the guy with the least rebounds has 123, I will get 12 points, the guy in second place will get 11 points, and the guy who came in last will get 1 point.


    So that's how it's scored. I have selected PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLKS, TO, 3PM, FG%, FT%, 3P%.


    During the season, we can also trade player with other teams, and add free agents (basically anyone who wasn't drafted). WE can only trade until the trade deadline though.


    It's really fun, so see if you or anyone else now that I've explained it wants to join.

    @ RipCity

    Scoring system is everything.  I prefer a max of 10 teams which keeps a more active waive wire.  Ten categories is too many imo, definitely not a fan of 3pt%, and I don't enjoy roto leagues.  Head-to-head is where it's at.  Roto is more for casual fantasy play.  I don't know if you'd be up for making those changes, but I would be interested to try ESPN if you could be diswaded.

    I was kinda on the fence about 3pt% too, I'm gonna change that. Gonna keep Roto, but definitely gonna try out H2H in a public league or something. JOIN THE LEAGUE, it'll be fun. And it will probably whittle down to 10 teams because not a lot of people are joining.

    Sigh, roto is so bad for me. : (   If you go with roto, then there's not really need for having an odd number of categories, making turnovers unecessary as well.  Turnovers basically just bring down the value of top tier, ball dominate players - sort of an normalizing effect in an already casual roto league.

    @ RipCity 14, Blazer Fanatic makes a good pt. & can we go w/ head to head v. roto?  I really like it because of the rivalries/direct matchups; the opportunities for trash talkin’ & overall completion r more fun! :)

    RipCity 14, I wanna thank u for ur time/efforts in forming THE League. :)  You’ve got the ball rolling w/ all this @ a very good time; ur celerity has afforded us enough time to make changes that will create THE  best/most fun fantasy experience possible. ;)

    @ Siccolo, alright brother! :)  Glad to have u on board w/ THE Dangerous Crew!  Hahaha!  Welcome sir!  Welcome! :)

    I know nothing of H2H, so if someone else makes the league, I will join, 100%. I am still going to run my Roto league though. And I'm also in a Yahoo Roto league lol. 

    So if Blazer Fanatic or Simpsons will start one, count me in, but see if you can play in mine as well.

    Also, are you (the automated random assigner) going to establish draft order prior to the actual draft?

     

    H2H just means you match up vs another player week to week, and the winner of that week gets... a win.  So the playoffs are based on over-all record of wins and losses.  You either win or lose or tie (rare) a category, so if you win 5 of 4 categories versus your match up that week, you win.  Then you go against someone else the next week. 

     

    I'm not interested in starting, or managing a league this year, but I could join one.  Roto... uhg. : (

    @ RipCity 14, I've actually never played Roto but from the rules u explained to Riverman, I think I've a pretty good idea of how game play would go.  If I were entering fantasy for the 1st time & had the game play of H2H & roto explained to me, H2H just even sounds like more fun.  I don't want to make it seem like Blazer Fanatic & I r ganging up on u or anything, there's no animosity or anything like that.  @ 1st, when u started this post league, I was under the impression that it was going to b H2H (this is no fault of yours, it's my mistake); I should've asked b4 I joined.  I really would like to play H2H w/ every1 but because I joined already, I will still play in your league & fight as hard as I can.  I have no desire to b LM; I appreciate that u would join a league if Blazer Fanatic or I started 1 :)

     

    @ Blazer Fanatic & Siccolo, as I've just said in the paragraph ^, I was thinking this league would b H2H (which is all I've played & love!  Hahaha!) but it's not & if u both change your minds about playing, I'll hold nothing against either of u (I wouldn't have held anything against either of u even if u both even if u both flat-out said "no" ;)  We r/will all b coo either way np :)  BUT... if it's not this season that we play H2H fantasy ball... I very much wanna battle the 2 of u for the crown 1 day!  Hahaha! ;)

    Exaxtly what I thought Siccolo, Roto you get to play everyone. And thanks Simpson.

    Blazer Fanatic, if you're not doing a H2H league, I'll start one but I will need to know more about it to do so.

    And of course the main problem is not having enough people joining.

    And Blazer Fanatic, I removed 3p%, and while I do agree that turnovers aren't REALLY fair to heavy ball handlers, 8 categories are too less. FTM sounds like the best out of the rest of the options, what do you gys think?

    It's ok.  Managing a league is more time consuming than posting a quick reply on a forum, so I'll join the roto.

    The standard league, default stats for espn, does not include turnovers.  Try a mock draft and check it out. 8 stats is plenty.  Should I just pm you my email then?

    @ RipCity 14, since u r the LM of both leagues, would u b ok w/ me moving my play/my a** on over to ur H2H league only?  I'm already in 2 leagues (ur roto would put me in 3 + the H2H makes 4 & I don't think I can fully put my pwr into 4; 3 is the absolute max w/ my time available).

    @ RipCity 14, like Blazer Fanatic said, 10 is great/what I prefer too but I'm in a 12 GM league w/ my friends (they forced to happen that way, it's long story) & THAT IMO in MOST cases, is the very largest u want w/ it staying fun ;)  So if u could make it 10, that'd b awesome :)  I JUST got off the phone w/ my friend & he says he's in for H2H.  Lemme know if it's cool w/ u & I'll send u his email in a pm sir ;)

     

    ps I think Siccolo, even though he seems to like roto, will jump w/ us to H2H if asked ;)
