Fantasy basketball? October 10, 2008 8:18 PM   Subscribe

Would anyone be interested in a metafilter fantasy basketball league?

(Unless if one already exists that I don't know about)

I would be very much interested.

Yes, although I'm a relative fantasy bb n00b. Are we thinking head-to-head or roto?

I was thinking head-to-head, though I'm open to either.

Absolutely. If by fantasy, you mean I can invent a race of atomic supermen.

I like the idea of roto, and was just about to setup my usual sparsely populated league on Yahoo. I've got a handful of friends/family members that can be counted on to play, but we could always use about 5-6 more people it seems.

Last year I took to adding a ridiculous number of positions to make up for the lack of people.

I'd be interested in playing with some of you folks (I noticed you posted this over at MetaChat already).

I'm in, if it's "head to head." The pile-up-stats-and-see-who-wins-in-10-months style bores me.

I would prefer head-to-head, as well.

I'm interested, too. I've never done fantasy BB.

I'd probably be in if it were H2H and I could make the live draft. I'm commish-ing a longtime friends-league already, but I wouldn't be averse to having another team.

I guess this is my way of saying "Color me maybe".

I'll set up a head-to-head one tomorrow with (if it's available) a draft set for 7 or 8 PM CST on an upcoming Sunday night. I'll post the details tomorrow.

Here's the league page

The league ID # is 76250
The password is cameras
The draft is currently set for October 19th at 7:30 p.m. Central Time. You don't have to live draft, but it gives you a better shot.

I posted this on the league page but: as it stands, we have seven teams. It would be excellent if we had at least ten. My brother and my good friend would be thrilled to add more franchises to the league; they are not members but they are lurkers. Are more folks going to join the league? Do we need them to fill out spots? Do we want them to fill out spots?

I'd be fine with whoever joining. Ten teams would be a good number.

My brother says this will make him finally drop the five bucks to join, so that's good.
