Fantasy basketball

    I'm truly surprised that it isn't more popular. It is my favorite fantasy sport, perhaps by a long shot. (I do enjoy baseball, as well, because of the pitching/hitting dichotomy.)

    Anyone else play?

    Played since 1997 -- won 7 titles in 16 years. We had one league (where you had week long head to head match-ups) blown apart when the commissioner was making roster moves for less active teams. Been in my current league since 2003. 12 teams, 8 categories. One keeper who must be originally drafted 4th round or later and you keep at a one round penalty the first year and two round additional penalty the next.

    I know there were leagues in the '90s in which Michael Jordan could not be drafted. I wonder if we are getting to that point with LeBron and Durant. Seems damn tough to win a league if you aren't drafting first or second.

    We did this in high school, if you picked Jordan, you would be skipped in the next two rounds. If memory serves, it didn't make that much of a difference.

    Love fantasy hoops. Went back and checked my leagues from last year (5 of 'em.....embracing my geekdom). Three had Durant, one had LeBron.....four had Paul George.

    If someone starts a league here, I'd be in. I need a reason to care about the NBA regular season.

    The one and only time I did this, I picked Pervis Ellison as my center. Dumb ass.

    I was in Arco Arena booing him when the real pick was made. Of course, we all wanted them to take Stacey King. :D

    Well, at least King is able to contribute as a broadcaster. ;D
