JediDefender Fantasy....um....basketball? 2012? Maybe?
« on: September 7, 2011, 12:04 AM »
Are they playing?  I know there's a schedule.  Whatever.

League ID: 4094
password: berry

I think league is set for 8 teams right now, everyone should get an email on it.  More players are welcome if anyone new wants to join in.  Just let me know and I'll set the limit higher.

Is there anything worse than fantasy basketball?  The answer is fantasy hockey and golf.

But yeah, I'll play again just to see if I can draft Patrick Ewing Jr.. Ron 'Peace Around the World' and Allen Iverson.

Did fantasy basketball exist in the Jordan era?  That would have been cool.

I played Fantasy Basketball in the early 90's...I had Barkley and Karl Malone on the same team and absolutely mopped up one year.  I know for sure that I played Fantasy Football in the late 80's with my buddies.  I remember having Herschel Walker as a Viking which would have been 1989.

Well now we know at least the first 2 weeks of the season are cancelled.

That means LeBron James has 2 less weeks to choke.

Yeah, um, I just changed the draft.  Had it set for tomorrow night but bumped it back to November 30th now.  Will advise if anything changes.

Only five signed up.  Would like at least three more.  Assuming they play this year.

I guess I'll play if there is a season.  We'll have to see what happens.

I'm hearing reports that the lockout is done.  Hopefully this will be official today and we'll get a 50 game season or something.

It seems that's the case from what I've read as well. 

Our draft is scheduled for Wednesday, November 30th.  I think I'll leave it there, so the draft is only five days away. 

We could use some more teams as we're only at five right now.  Eight is a nice minimum.

I think the season is set to start on Christmas Day December 25th.  Why don't we make the draft a few days before that, so we can actually let the free agency signings happen, and some preseason games.  We literally don't even know where some of the star 2nd and 3rd round players are landing yet.  Drafting now would be pretty much blind.

Yeah if there are openings I'd be in favor of pushing it back.  Not too far though, if you get to close to the holidays it'll start getting tough.

Because I'm in Hawaii from the 10th to the 23rd.  Not doing a draft while I'm in Hawaii.

Well I could do it on the 23rd?  If you guys are willing to wait that long and that night is feasible as it's probably the start of the Christmas weekend for those with families coming in or traveling to visit. 

Otherwise I'll just do an autodraft and live with the results.  If so, propose a date please and I'll make the adjustment to the draft.

Yeah, I can't do it that close to Christmas.  I've got this whole wedding thing on New Year's Eve that is eating up most of my free time and will really be eating up all of my free time by that point in the month.

What about as close to the departure date for your Hawaii trip as possible?
