    Default Fantasy NBA 2011-2012

    We have: myself, SNIC, Brew, Menlow, Double Down, It's Mike, Brett, Scotty5150, Steve McQueen and jrk5150. A 10 team squad all returning from last year.

    Not much needs to be said , but I'll post this just for reference anyway...


    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 2-3 times each. This year we are competing in the following catagories: Field Goals Made, Field Goal Percentage, Free Throws Made, Free Throw Percentage, Three Pointers Made, Blocks, Assists, Steals, Offensive Rebounds, Defensive Rebounds, Double Doubles, and Team Wins total to round out the categories to an odd number of 13 so that there are no ties. This year I was looking for a bit more balance between offensive and defensive categories which I think was found with the slight favor still going to offense (which I've always liked). That makes 12 basketball categories total and the last one is new with total team wins, which I consider as a potential tie breaker kind of. It's interesting anyway. Also, I think Double Doubles are new to this league, but I did it in another league and it was a fun one to have. Splitting the Rebounds between offensive and defensive is also interesting and a new twist.

    The weeks winners are determined by how many categories you win/lose.

    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, IR, IR (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!:

    Live draft again. It owns. Draft day lets say will be December 13th, Tuesday at 6pm PST. I'll provide a call in number again. We'll see how that date floats and adjust as necessary.

    This is a keeper league. Same as before, keeping 4. Returnees, you should know your picks, but if not, make them. I'll collect and post in one post later on so we know who's in the pool and who's already taken


    The draft will be a "snake" style draft starting at 1, going through 10, then 10 again and back to 1. Repeat 14 times or so. Draft order will be from last to first in accordance with end of season rankings.

    The rules:

    Standard rules of the league will be displayed under the league settings page on the ESPN 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)

    -The injured list- Thank God ESPN has an automated system for this. It's a PIA to manage otherwise. We have two IR spots. If a guy goes down, you can pick another up and keep your guy on IR until he heals.

    -Disputes/challenges go through me. I'll mediate if necessary. Doubt it will be.

    -Keepers- Deadline for deciding on your keepers will be let's say ASAP, but no later than this weekend. Figure it out. It's not hard.

    -Trade deadline- It'll be as early as I can set it. I don't want teams with shoddy records cashing it in and giving up early and targeting keepers for the next year. Nothing wrong with that of course, not against the rules or anything, it just seems to take some purity out of it.

    -Trading- No trades this year prior to the draft. No trading of draft positions or any of that. Back to basics here. Select your keepers, draft your team, then let the trading begin.

    Shit. ESPN fantasy site is blocked by my company's firewall, which means I can only do this from home.

    Shit.

    The Champ is still considering his keeper options. We are planning a press conference for later in the week.

    I missed this thread and our league. I don't even care as much about the NBA finally getting its act together.

    BTW everyone should be on the phone for the draft like usual....you are a puss if you are not. And someone should tell OLO to get on too, so we can laugh at him. Especially you chowderheads that have that accent I can't figure out.

    I don't think we can drop players, I can't find a place to do it. I think you have to do it seen.

    I'm keeping Kobe, D Will, and Ze Bo. Haven't decided on the 4th yet.

    Try harder.

    Go to your team. On the top there are tabs, League/MyTeam/Players/Standings etc. Right under those tabs are link options like Roster/Add Player/Drop Player/Manage IR etc. Clicky button. Drop players.

    As LM, I can only do it one player at a time and each time I have to go through like 4 web pages and it's a total PIA.

    I wasn't logged in. Surprising I could see anything not being a member of the league.
