Okay, Yahoo's fantasy NBA leagues begin in "late September" according to their site.  I think we should plan on  a October 1st-ish start to the draft.  The NBA season begins on November 1st.

Currently we have:

E.Z.
john todd
Juanelopezrosario
Mosnab
Dressel
Dressel Jr.
Scott
Morgbug
John H
Chris Elliott

Up to 2 more teams would be the limit.

I know Chris Elliott from RS is in.  I invited two other people as well, and I'll follow up with them today.

I forgot to ask, but where you guys do the fantasy leagues?  Yahoo?  Elsewhere?

Yahoo.com is where we input our teams and have our stats done, but we draft right here in this thread.  See our NFL or hockey threads for examples.  So we may post pick by pick in this thread for 2 weeks and complete our draft that way, then the commish will enter the teams into yahoo.com

Gah...seriously?  Seems to me that would be a tedious and painstaking process, as well as error-prone.  Why not do a live draft through Yahoo?

Error prone?  Not really, not if people are even moderately capable of paying attention.  You get an occasional error and the rest of the group mocks the other individual mercilessly.  At least that's the way it's supposed to work. 

As for tedious, yeah, it is.  But it's tough to get a set time for a live draft.  A lot of people aren't big fans of doing rankings online and setting it all up if they can't draft in person.

It's fun, give it a shot this time.  It works for us all the time.  When things get going, you wind up picking about 1 player a day on average.  Also, basketball goes the fastest because there are only 7 starting spots, and 5 bench = 12 rounds.  I also feel that's what makes JD Fantasy Sports, well, JD Fantasy Sports.  The way we draft kinda separates it from other leagues.

Check out an example of our recent football draft here

No, it's cool...I wasn't complaining.  Just seemed weird to me at first, but you guys are a bunch of lunatics anyway.  (I mean that in the most endearing way, of course.   :P)

I'll definitely give it a shot.  Looking forward to it.

That Canadian has to pay for stealing my championship at the end of last season.

And pay he will.

One thing I can guarantee, Kobe Bryant, Shawn Marion, and Amare Stoudemire will not all wind up on the same team this year.

And one thing I can guarantee, is that I will somehow end up picking in the bottom half of the first round - 4 straight fantasy sports endeavors, 4 straight times picking half way down or lower.
