GDS Fantasy Basketball


Recommended Posts

So I decided not to sign up for fantasy football since I've got so much on my plate right now. But there's no way I'll miss NBA/fantasy basketball season, and I've been thinking of joining another league aside from the 2-3 I'm usually active in. Or in this case, forming one, though I must warn you I have no experience as a league commissioner. Will give it the old college try, though...AFAIK most of the tedious stuff comes when you're setting up the league, but when the season begins, you can just sit back and adjust your lineup with the rest of the guys, and approve trades when they come along.


Is anyone else interested in joining a fantasy basketball league? I've played on Yahoo for the past 6-7 years, I'd say, so I'm most familiar with its rules and mechanics...

Invites have been sent to Psycho Sam and EddieFnG...so that leaves 13 more spots open! <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" />

Bumping this as we've got less than three weeks to go before the start of the NBA season! <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> Anyone who's interested can PM me...dunno if I'd be able to drum up enough interest for a 16-team league, but perhaps eight or ten teams would be fine. We're still at three teams as of now - EddieFnG, Psycho Sam and myself.

<p>Oh well, at least I tried. <img alt=":o" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/redface.png.900245280682ef18c5d82399a93c5827.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

Still stuck at three teams with mere days remaining before the season kicks off, which means I'm going to have to dissolve the league. Many thanks, though, to EddieFnG and Psycho Sam for signing up! <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> Let's see if we can do this again in 2014-15.</p>
