    Default Fantasy NBA 2008-2009

    The best game and the best thread ever will begin now.

    I'm going to copy the first post of last year, and make a few minor revisions that we've already discussed.....

    I'll try to encapsulate as much in to one post here as possible for future reference regarding the league and the rules.

    Access to last years page can be made through http://archive.fantasysports.yahoo.com/nba/2007/125439

    First, the teams: I'm not aware of any pussy quitters. I think we have about the best group we could ask for. Let me know if you're not in though.

    We have: Brew Crew, myself, Wruff, Menlow, Panama Dog, It's me, Miller Lite Drinkers (Brews brother), Brett, Scotty5150 and jrk5150. A ten team squad and no freshmans.

    The Format:

    This league will be head to head (same as prior years), meaning that your team will play a different opponent every week. We cycle through and play each other about 3 times I think. In the past, we have competed in the following scoring categories: FGM (field goals made), FG%, FTM (free throws made), FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK. Each category won is considered one point. The weeks winners are determined by how many categories you win/lose. I'm considering another category to add to make it an odd number which lessens the chance of a tie.

    We'll compete with the following roster positions: (same as last year): PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, C, Util, Util, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN (Util= utility and can be any NBA position, BN= Bench and does not count towards the days stats ie if a player is assigned to the bench, even if they are playing that night, they are not active and accumulating towards your score).

    45 moves allowed again. Trades and injured reserve players don't count towards your moves for the season (more on injuries later).

    The Draft!:

    This is one of the funnest parts of the season for me. This year is going to just rock.

    I don't know the format yet. Live draft vs. offline. I'd prefer live of course, but time zones etc can be a challenge. Let's say we'll make every attempt at live, but I know the offline works too. Draft day lets say will be early/mid October and I'll keep you posted on date/time.

    This is a keeper league. Same as before, keeping 4.


    The draft will be a "snake" style draft starting at 1, going through 10, then 10 again and back to 1. Repeat 14 times.

    The rules:

    Standard rules of the league will be displayed under the league settings page on the Yahoo! site. I do have some additions though that are not listed there:

    1. ACTIVE PARTICIPATION- Basically, this is a big boy league. I expect that this be an active, interactive and competitive league. I don't care if you have a good team or a bad team or what your rank is, but I do care about you playing your best. That means basically updating your roster on a weekly (or so) basis, responding to trade requests within a reasonable amount of time, taking care of injured players etc. It's lame when somebody disappears for a week and doesn't update their roster, letting their opponent have an easy win (which affects everything including final standings, playoff rankings etc) and then comes back the next week and updates just to smoke the next guy. It's not fair. Basically, the more participation we have, the funner the league is for everybody. This has always been an active league so I'd have no reason to suspect that it won't continue to be. I just want to put that out there. If you end up in last place, I'd expect you to not pick up your ball and go home. (Again, I copied this from last year. Given the core we have here, I really don't see this as an issue at all)

    2. The injured list- It's going to be as simple as this: If you have a player go down and he missed playing time in 3 consecutive games or more, you can drop that player, have them be protected (nobody can pick them up), pick up another player to replace them until he heals and pick him back up at that time. As long as we have rule #1 followed, this will never be a problem.If he's protected, he's protected until you want to pick him back up. If he's been back for a while and you haven't picked him up, I may send you a note asking you to shit or get off the pot, but he's your guy.

    4. Disputes/challenges go through me. I'll mediate if necessary. Doubt it will be. If you guys don't like the way something is done, bring it up by all means

    5. Keepers- Deadline for deciding on your keepers will be prior to draft day. Do whatever trading you want to do now and up until that point. I'll have a specific date to list em'. Hell, list em now if you want. I'm going with Bosh, Arenas, Boozer and B Davis, but I'm open to trading of course, prior to the draft.

    6. Trade deadline- It'll be way earlier this year. The only thing I didn't like very much last year was the tendency to throw it in early if it didn't look like you had a shot at the title and just go for keepers for this year. Nothing wrong with that of course, not against the rules or anything, it just seemed to take some purity out of it.

    Get ready to roll bitches. I know I have a target on my back and many of you are due for a legit title run.....gotta get that from me first though.

    Oh, and sticky this shit!!

    The UFA's are signing in and ready to roll. We'll be looking to knock that crown off your head Seen. Let us know when draft day will be - we got our keepers ready to announce.

    Not for nothin, and certainly don't want to make more work for you, but NBA.com's draft was put together much better than Yahoo's, IMO. I kind of like how we accidentally ended up doing it last year - draft on NBA.com, play on Yahoo. You had the live chat on NBA.com, because we did it there, they kept track of who was drafted, so we didn't have to, etc.

    i agree with JRK about the look of the NBA.com draft room but I'm hoping we can do a live draft. I know last year didn't work but it would be nice to go live this season.

    I'm up for a live draft.

    I know there are some different time zones, but if we all have enough notice, maybe everybody could be available on a Saturday evening/afternoon? Something like 7:00 est/4:00 pst?

    That way you guys can witness genius all at once rather than staggered out over a week.

    Whatever. Your overrated UFA's (my 9-month old could think of a better name) are destined for failure.

    She probably could but she's too busy working on your draft board last I heard. Good to see you brought some expertise into the organization.

    don't make me post the picture of Nash with the 2 MVP trophies.

    BTW - Joseph has a mesage for the little princess: "my dad's team is better then your dad's".

    Just called Joseph and he simply said "Scoreboard". Not sure what he meant.

    If I remember correctly, the Knicks even managed a deep playoff run a couple times in the last 20 years.
