So those of you who keep up with the NBA will know that the season is just around the corner. And that means it's time for Fantasy Basketball! Summer Camps have long since ended and the preseason is on the way, so now all that's left is to start recruiting dedicated players to fill the league. Note that I said dedicated players The league will be done on ESPN so all selected users will need an ESPN account. The league itself will have a chat board but we're most likely going to be communicating through the forums and Skype (for real time chats). This isn't a requirement by any means. It's just useful. I'm looking for about 16-20 teams and as stated before - I don't think this can be stressed enough - I want only the most dedicated players. So, in order to make the selection process easier I'd like for each interested user to include their favorite team/s and why favorite player/s and why storyline that you look forward to the most this season an idea of how much time you devote to following basketball in general whether or not you've done fantasy basketball before, and if yes how many seasons as well finishing positions and records These may seem like silly areas to base qualifications on. But any real sports fan will know that these alone are enough to gauge the level of interest we can expect throughout the season. I don't want people that watch only the finals so they can know who won. I want... you guessed it, dedicated players. I expect the level of competition to be high all throughout the season. So if you're the kind that will get discouraged because of a bad start and quit, then just move along. So let's see just how much interest will be generated. Feel free to post any questions you may have regarding the league in general. Keep in mind that you don't have to have played fantasy before. If I can see that you're - what was that word - dedicated, then that may be enough to secure a spot. I suppose I should have also have mentioned that the current set draft date is Sunday, October 28 at 5PM EST. Of course this is subject to change to suit as many of us as possible. Chances are it won't be any later than that though. The league starts on Tuesday, October 30.
