A Deadly Fantasy
I can do a nine draft. I think I've got another one at 10:30. I guess with a 20 team league we are talking about a 2 hour draft, so probably some overlap. I wonder if I can do two on the same computer at the same time? They are both ESPN which might make it a bit more difficult.
Anyway, no way you can satisfy everyone in a 20 team league. But Sunday night is generally the safest bet one would think.
“It’s very exciting,” Scola told HOOPSWORLD of playing with Dragic again. “I think he did a great job last year. We were struggling, so when he showed up in the starting lineup he gave us a spark and we started playing well, we started winning games and we went all the way to the last week of the season (in the playoff hunt)… He had a great year and I’m happy that I get to play with him again.”
we should do a mock
If you have any spots left I'll join. [email protected]
Amock?!? And give up my sleepers? NFW.
I've never done a 20 team draft before. The problem with most drafts that I have is we get through 15 rounds and I'm still seeing a ton of talent on the board that I'm ready to role with. Not everyone pans out, but I always have guys in mind that don't get drafted that I know will produce good enough to be on a team. But with 20 teams and decent sized rosters, I don't know what those last rounds are really going to look like.
Also, I've never done double double and tripple double catagory. I assume tripple double category is generally just won by the team that gets one that week. Rondo's about the only guy in the league who can count on getting a triple double at some point during the season. So it seems a random category, but it will be fun. When one of your guys gets one, then you pretty much know you just got a point.
"Amock?!? And give up my sleepers? NFW."
FOR REAL, no mock... that would be stupid
I got, like, second in last year's league, so I'm a serious playa. I will update my roster several times a week and stuff. So pick me.
LoL. The triple-double thing is really just a fun category. It won me a week last year and it was awesome. So when ya get one, its pretty exciting.
No offense to you pistol but you have only posted a handful of times.. Idk about inviting you. I am still waiting for 6 people to register. If one of them doesn't register, I'll send ya an invite. Sorry man.
That's fine. I don't post much but I read a lot. I will definitely keep up with it if you change your mind.
I'm gonna send ya an invite.. I sent one to a sketchy guy and he hasn't responded.
Still waiting for a confirm from:
aamir, ohcanada, f_smock, and TaylorCodrin
Could you guys post the draft results? I've never seen a 20-team draft and am curious how this will look.
Or just link me if that works.
Looking forward to it, any time on Sunday is fine with me so it doesn't matter. I think 20 teams will make it pretty interesting, almost like doing a fantasy draft on NBA 2K.
20 teams makes it very hard.. But IMO, that is fun. You are depending on guys like AJ Price and Jason Smith to be big players on your team. And a guy that can average 5 rebounds and 6 points is a huge asset to you. It also make the big name players that much more important since you don't usually have 2 stud players on your team. Nobody is going to get Lebron and Love on the same team.
When you have 20 players, I think the winner is a person that works really hard all year on making the right moves and really working the Waiver wire..
I am very excited about it.
Another thing is the draft. In a snake draft, it is a blessing and a curse to get the first pick. Because then you get to pick KD or Lebron but on the bad side of it, you don't pick again until 40th. But, you also get the very next pick. So if you don't know what your doing, the first pick can ruin you.
I am probably late but my email is [email protected]. Thanks
I've got 2 people who haven't registered.. I'll boot 1 out.
Just sent an invite.
Congratulations! You have successfully joined the ESPN Fantasy Basketball league "A Deadly Fantasy".
don't boot me... im signing up
Already did. Resend me your email and I will giv you OhCanada's spot if you register quick.
I sent it.
Hope everyone has done their homework for the draft tomorrow.
Just something to think about, if you get the first pick, yuou wont pick again until like 39th and 40th.. Its a long wait..
Should be a great time! Draft at 9!
Agh I only work once a week and it had to fall on draft day. I've spent the morning tweeking my players rankings, but I need autodraft to come through for me big time! I'm excited to see who I end up with lol, and hit me up with some trade ideas since I might need to reshape a bit after
I'm sorry to hear that man. Hopefully you end up with some good people. Or at lest some people you can trade to get who ya want.
Spent about a hour or so scouting this is huge a 20 player league.Im loveing to see how the injured players get took in the draft.
Feeling like a nba scout and gm right now with all the work I just put in.
People always talk about scouting, but for basketball I feel like I know the game well enough to pick between John Lucas the third and Charles Jenkins, I've never been in a league larger than 14, so this will definatly be fun.
Im tellin you guys, its gonna be pretty fun.
“The team put me in the position where we had to move,” Allen recently told WMEN in Miami. “We had to go. Miami was a better choice for us based on what the team was doing, so don’t boo me, boo the team.”
wow number 1 pick, that makes things a lot easier. Autopick pulled through for me like a champ, really like my squad.
can people post their teams?
Brooklyn Tall Ball. I missed the first few rounds and got auto drafted Jefferson and Millsap, which is a little questionable. But I picked up drafting live with about the sixth pick and I really like the bench guys I've got. With a 20 team league you can see how deep you have to go once you start talking about being 200 picks into a draft. I mean how many leagues out there could Kosta Koufos actually be on. But apparently he is starting for Denver which is a fast paced squad. He might work out for me.
PG Andre Miller, Den PG
SG Nicolas Batum, Por SF
SF Danny Granger, Ind SF
PF Paul Millsap, Uta PF
C Al Jefferson, Uta C
G Kawhi Leonard, SA SF
F Elton Brand, Dal PF
UTIL Omer Asik, Hou C
UTIL Andray Blatche, Bkn PF
UTIL Jared Sullinger, Bos PF
Bench Enes Kanter, Uta C
Bench Kosta Koufos, Den PF
Bench Nate Robinson, Chi PG
I figured out a way to cut and paste from the edit trading block setting that made it easy to post this.
I had the 2nd pick of the draft, and here is how my team looks:
PG- Tony Parker
SG- Mo Williams (PG)
SF- Lebron James
PF- Chris Bosh (C)
C- Nikola Pekovic
G- Ramon Sessions (Pg/Sg)
F- Jason Richardson (Sg/Sf)
UTIL- Chris Kaman (C)
UTIL- Nikola Vucevic (PF/C)
UTIL- Anthony Morrow (SG/SF)
Bench- Jason Thompson (PF)
Bench- Corey Maggette (SF)
Bench- Jason Maxiell (PF/C)
I tried to draft a bunch of guys who play multiple positions, so now I have atleast 3 players avaialble at every position. My top 3 players don't make many 3's and is why I picked up guys like Morrow, Richardson, and Willliams. Plus my team has 2 guys named Nikola, nobody is gonna beat that.
My internet went out and I couldn't get it too load on my phone. Verizon and ATT must have been having issues at the same time. It auto picked mine but it looks like I have a pretty solid team.
I remember some of my picks so here we go. Westbrook, Joe Johnson, Evan Turner, T Rob, Brook Lopez, Javale McGee, Grevis Vazquez, Caron butler, Tiago splitter, Derrick Williams, Eric Bledsoe, Austin daye and one more I forget
I had the 10th pick and made every selection myself..
These are in order that I picked them.
1st: Rajon Rondo
2nd: Paul Pierce
3rd: Roy Hibbert
4th: Carlos Boozer
5th: Kris Humphries
6th: Jonas Valanciunas
7th: Luke Ridnour
8th: Courtney Lee
9th: Tayshaun Prince
10th: J.J. Redick
11th: Terrence Ross
12th: Kyle Korver
13th: Tyrus Thomas
With my later picks, I tried to make sure I drafted players that were starters or would get starter minutes regardless of their predicted stats..
PG - Damian Lillard
SG - Landry Fields
SF - Kevin Durant
PF - Anthony Davis
C - Marcin Gortat
G - Raymond Felton
F - Tristan Thompson
UTIL - Jameer Nelson
UTIL - Jeff Green
UTIL - Richard Hamilton
Bench - Devin Harris
Bench - Tobias Harris
Bench - Kendrick Perkins

How did you pull off Taj Gibson and Ty Lawson for Marcus Thornton? That's highway robbery lol
its not he had mello and ty lawson they put up close stats one gets more boards the other gets more assit i gave him more scoring and steals and a rebounding from the sg spot not to mention 2 or more 3s a game in thorton hes slept on he was before alot of top players like klay kmart thad,stuckey he fills up every stat...taj is a bench player i have no room for him i can release him and he can have him back i just took the offer i wanted lawson
anyway I want lilard my pgs are off limits u can have anyone else and multipel players ......you can only put faried n the deal if i get davis back@ moochie
