To all the veterns of this site
The draft I have planned is still going on. Please state your case in why you think you are one of the top 10 minds on the site. (Note, I have already thought of D Hamp, as I think he is deserving, while he is on his hiatus).
haha i think because butidonthavemoney likes me. no because i believe i have earned respect from the users on this site. might not be a top 1o user but i dont know what else to say.
i believe i am a top 10 ten user because i always respect others opinions but i always make sure mine is known.I am knowledgable about basketball and i am involved with this site on a daily basis.
Decent post but I cant really argue my point considering lately i have not been on much.
I won't say I am better than anybody else or more deserving but sure I would like to participate in this contest. I am a consistent contributor to this site. I am very competitive & would enjoy the challenge of going against the other knowledgeable posters on here.
I'm with Gatorheels as far as saying I'm better then others although I have put up good post and topics, but I know I've slipped off compared to others because early on in the Summer I had the time to get on here and discuss a lot more, but lately I try and get on and at night everyone is usually gone by then. I am sure hardly anyone would mention me for a shoutout thinking off the top of their head because I don't post as much as some of the others. It's fine if I'm not a Top 10 Mind on here. I just joined for the fun of it. Hopefully I can get on more towards the end of summer before school starts in 3 weeks.
i dont want to say im any better than anyone, but i am on this site everyday and alwways have a way to contribute to this site. I post a lot and have made some topics that lots of people discuss on, i also do lots of fantasy and have teams every year in all sports.
I know there are a lot of great minds. Im not up there when it comes to NCAA stuff, since i live in canada and i don't get much detail to it, but i can still argue with the best of them. Im probably not going to say im the best, but neither will i say someone else is better then me.I think its just the competitive nature i have. I try to post as much as i can, and give insight. I try to bring breaking news faster then CNN lol but its alright if im not top 10 just trying to get better, and one day i am preobably going to be number one.
i think we should have a second league too.
I don't know if I'm top ten or not but I think I'm up there in terms of number of posts...
I think Im a guy that post only what I know, not what I can find on other websites or looking up scouting reports and statistics. In my opinion, it takes limited knowledge to do that. I try to go on what I see actually happen, instead of looking up stats to determine who's better than who. There are plenty of guys that base performance off of stats or what they read on another website, I really try to not do that.
I also think if you dont think your the best, you will never be the best. So, yes, I do think Im the best poster on this site. I honestly do, and if you dont then thats you. I dont mean to come off arrogant, but Im not going to be modest when I really do feel Im better. I try my hardest to back up everything I say with as much detail as possible, so you cant say I didnt explain myself and I try to make it easy to read and understand.
I also feel that its important to let your posts speak for themselves. When I 1st came on this site, I felt that I made good posts but they were overlooked. That was OK, because sooner or later my posts would speak for themselves. I didnt need to make slogans, or call out other people, or call people "idiots" to get attention or anything like that to prove a point. If you make sense, people will notice it. Thats all I do.
So basically those are my reasons for thinking Im a respected guy, hope yall respect me as much as I respect yall. I know Im not perfect, and I've made mistakes when talking about players or whatever, but I think I know what Im talking about most of the time.
it is hard to determine a top 10 users. But I ready for some fantasy bball, been playing some sort of fantasy basketball for 20 or so years. Also I am always very active and will pay attention to the league and players daily!
I would like to join a fantasy basketball league with some guys from this site. I haven't participated in one in 5+ years, but I'm sure I could get the hang of it again. I'm a huge fantasy football player.
As far as having two leagues, I think it would be cool to set it up similar to international soccer. Someone that knows how to explain this better than I'm about to then please do, but here is my take on it.
If we have multiple leagues, then we could rank the leagues. One league will be the most competitive league and each league after that varies. After the season concludes the bottom 3 teams from the "competitive" league will be demoted down to the next league, and the top 3 teams from the other league will be promoted up to the "competitive" league. I'm sure we can't set leagues up with these specific settings, but we could just run the leagues separate, write down the names of the teams that have to change leagues, and adjust from there.
If someone decides not to play before the next season then they can be replaced. In the case that player is in the "competitive" league, then the next best player/team from the other league will be upgraded to the "competitive" league.
Basically, you want to stay in the "competitive" league year-in, year-out by avoiding a terrible season. Also, I'm unsure if the keeper league option is available for basketball fantasy leagues, but it would be cool to set a league up with keepers.
Knicksboy or birdman could even set up a website dedicated to these leagues to keep up with all sorts of information, stats, etc. If we could get enough dedicated people this could be a long-term league that goes on for years. Maybe to the point it will be the most famous fantasy basketball league ever in like 3-5 years, then we could charge entrance fees for all of the new people that want to join. J/k, ha.
Just an idea I had after reading some posts on here. Feel free to comment or criticize since this idea is currently nothing more than just an idea.
ive never played fantasy Bball before so id have to go in one of the lower leagues. and i dont have experiance so i wouldnt be able to set it up very well.
You are asking the veterns of this site to beg you to be in your league?
Stop and think about this...
I'm not begging, if people don't want to do it, I can get rid of it, just an idea. I am open to two leagues, and may even participate in the 2nd league. So far in the first league I am thinking of putting in: Sheltwon, RickyRubio9, gatorheels, D Hamp, BasketBallGuru 24, igoudala9 for sure, and other people in this thread that are hungryyy. I never meant to leave anyone out, I'm down for making 5 leagues if I have too, I just have to give respect to people that have been on this site a long time, and wanna see whos the greatest mind out of them. Those 6 are in the first one for sure. Im not trying to diss anyone, Im just giving respect to those who deserve it most. I think everyone else in this thread has a possibility for making it into the first group because they are showing mad interest, but if there is overflow, I'll make a second one too.
You read my question wrong.
Hey butidonthavethemoney, sorry, read your post wrong. I don't want the veterens to beg to me. Disrespectful, I just want them to state their case. I would like you to be in the first draft too. If anyone gets snubbed out of the first group, please understand, it's because the 10 guys in the first league have been here longer. No disrespect.
I was just messing around. I think it's stupid to have to explain to everyone why you are worthy of playing fantasy ball but getting the best league possible makes sense.
No thanks I don't do fantasy ball, but I will follow the league because it would be interesting to see you all go at it.
The only offense taken was when you spelled my name wrong.
you're not playing?
I'm not into fantasy sports unless money is involved. I'll keep tabs on the standings and stuff.
I have no idea what this is for, but I had the time to post so I will say I think I am a top 10 easily and probably the 1st or 2nd best o the site. Sorry if I seem cocky but Iguadala said it perfectly, you can't be the best if you don't think you are.
I love fantasy basketball, and would love to be in a league with you guys.
I would definitely win though... ;)
I always try and back up what I say, and actually take the time to think about what I'm saying so that I don't sound like a complete idiot (all the time)
i wont lie or bullsh*t like some others on here. if i lose a arguemtn or if im wrong i own up but i dont lose often. I dont base my opinions off my fav players or who i like and dont like i base it off game. i take into account how much ppl play and wat systems they are in that prevent them from doin wat others do
