    distaste is a bit strong, however I just don't think basketball translates all that well to fantasy. ah, what the hell... count me in if you need me. Are lineups locked for the week or am I going to have to check this thing daily... if daily, that is going to be tough for me.

    I actually liked the locked lineups for the week... I think it enhanced the strategy quite a bit... do you play the lesser players that is playing 4 times for the week or the better player that is only playing 3? made for some interesting choices. It also made for a more level playing field as it did not just reward who is always checking it and eliminated all the continual one day pickups and cuts. A team should be a "team"... just just a revolving door or free agent acquisitions no? Or is there at least a limit on the amount of games you can "play" at each position?

    Well, I see your point and basically agree with everything youve put there................but I would just hate for a player to get injured on day 1 and then you are stuck with him all week!

    We have the free agent max at 50, so that prevents spamming the wire from the word go............other than that, I just really wouldnt want to do it personally.

    We can take a vote though.

    Also, for those who want to sign up now, I have created the league (can change anything we decide to as we go along before the draft).

    So strategy question... that means that it is more important to just get bodies into the lineup on a daily basis then the quality of those bodies?

    Re: WRT FANTASY BASKETBALL 2 - Come on People! Simple Yes or

    LOL, in a word...............hmmmm.

    HOWEVER............its not that simple, as obviously you would have to have a revolving set of players you are willing to part ways with constantly = meaning that you have multiple players on your team that arent very good. Also, you have to think about the moves in the sense of whether they are helping you improve a stat/positon you are lacking in............so there is strategy.

    So, at the end of the day, 1 solid player playing 3 games, is better than 3 sh*t players playing 6 games.

    Also, with the max move limit, it just doesnt happen............I mean I reached the 50 limit last year and I dont think anyone would say I spammed the wire.............in one of my leagues, with no limit, a guy had 89 moves! and he finished 4th.

    So really, it isnt as bad as it sounds.

    I know there's a way to do this on ESPN fantasy... but I'm not sure about Yahoo, but....

    Is there a way to change the scoring so that a FG attempt is -1, a made FG +1, FTA -1, FTM +1, TO -1, ast +1, 3pm +1, point +1, steal +2, blocks +1, reb +1? Basically customize the scoring? That way the scoring for each player is kind of like in fantasy football. Match up scoring would still be the same (7-2, 5-4, etc.), but this way it would rewards efficiency and penalizes non-efficiency. The FGA and FGM would replace FG% and FTA and FTM replaces FT%... It doesn't necessarily gotta be like that... but something to that effect. And I'm not saying we should change it to that type of scoring, but really just wondering if it can be done and maybe we can discuss it later.

    Re: WRT FANTASY BASKETBALL 2 - Come on People! Simple Yes or

    Man, I would have NO idea how to set that up and weight it all..............never done that before and dont have the issue of seeing the equal weighting as a problem.

    Does someone want to try it out and play around with it on ESPN, then report back with how it works?

    Also, at the moment we have 8 people including Bada............so not a great number and given the threads been open for over a week (an as an announcement for about 5 days).

    I also vouch for ESPN, lets agree on a weight, and experiment this year. My other league is playing ESPN too so it'll be convenient as well! :D

    ok, sorry, so I set this up but cant find a way to invite people other than by email. I am happy to do that but do we for sure want to move to ESPN? If we decide that, I need everyone to send me their email address via PM so I can send out invites.
