    Default NBA Yahoo Fantasy League

    Didn't want this info to get lost inside the other NBA Discussion Thread, so decided to make a thread of its own.

    Hey guys, I've gone ahead and set up a fantasy league on Yahoo. Anyone and everyone on SPCNET is invited and encouraged to join!
    ID# is 22384
    PW: spc123
    Head-to-head with default positions and scoring. Preliminary draft date is for Oct. 23, 12:00 PM EST, but if a lot of people can't make it we can try to figure out an optimal date.

    The default positions played is 1 PG, 1 SG, 1 G, 1 SF, 1 PF, 1 F, 2 C, 2 Util, 3 BN, 1 IL. In another league that I'm playing with friends, we thought that having so many positions played contributed a lot to randomness and luck depending on injuries. So instead we are doing a smaller number of positions played each day at 1 PG, 1 SG, 1 SF, 1 PF, 1 C, 2 Util, with 6 BN and 1 IL. Essentially, you play a 7 man rotation each day (kind of like a real team which does 7 or 8 man rotations) as opposed to Yahoo's default 10 man rotation. Any opinions, feedback, on which you guys would prefer? Leave it at Yahoo's default 10-man? Or switch to 7-man?

    Also, I've defaulted to Head-to-head for now because it just seems more fun. Would everyone prefer rotisserie instead? Votes?

    So go ahead and sign up everyone!

    Good luck, have fun!

    BTW ... who does everyone think will get picked #1? Personally, I would pick McGrady, but that's very much fan-worship influenced. Other than that, it'd be hard to argue against picking up Lebron. He doesn't have a single weak category (maybe except TO). Dirk could also be a candidate for #1 as he adds stats that normal PF's don't contribute. Garnett always a candidate for the top pick as well, giving ridiculous stats across the board.

    i think LBJ is the top pick this year for most leagues. KG and Duncan is good too. if i dont get any of those players i will go with Dirt or AK.

    That's Saturday morning in the States. I'm sure it would be saturday night or sunday morning for them. They can't be 24 hours ahead of us, right?

    Sounds good. Hope this will be a good season.

    Anyone know the time difference between US and Australia? I can try to figure out a time that would be at night as well as on the weekend.

    Maybe we can vote on what times we'll be available. The draft time won't be able to accomodate everyone, but hopefully it will for most. I will make time as long as it is not during the weekday since I work 8-5, but weeknights are ok. (US times)

    I wont be able to make it to any of the draft dates, so I am going to let yahoo draft for me according to my rankings. Also, we have an odd number of teams(7) in our league. We need an even number to make it work.

    Hmm before I go to change it again, let me try to suggest a time that will fit both Lin(weekend) and Crazy8(nighttime). How is Saturday Oct 22, 8 PM EDT? That would be Sunday Oct 23 11am in Australia I think. Let me know if that time is OK with you guys.

    Also, any input on whether you guys want to play a 7-man or a 10-man roster? (refer to my first post).
