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 12-16 teams and as stated before - I don't think this can be stressed enough - I want only the most dedicated players. For those of you that recognize this plagiarized introduction, you may very well have been a part of last year's league. In which case you're likely gonna get priority entry this year. Assuming you didn't fall off the face of the earth sometime during the season leaving your team without a manager. That being said, I'll still be looking for other enthusiasts to sign up as I'm sure there'll be plenty of spots still open. So I'll just go ahead and paste the rest of last year's thread since the requirements remain the same: 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 story line 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 as 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. Of course if you were in the league last year I won't care about this info. Just post saying you want to join and a quick decision will be made on whether you're in or not (based on productivity last year as mentioned before). The league starts on Tuesday, October 29 so the likely draft date will be Sunday October 27. One week from today. Time hasn't been set and the date isn't set in stone since I'll want to accommodate as many of us as possible. So for now, let's just fill those spots!
