I'm down for doing an ILH league but I'd say we need 8 minimum. Confirm in this thread if you want in and I'll set everything up if we get 8.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Wednesday, 16 October 2019 21:46 (two years ago) link

i'd do it this year if we can get enough folks yeah

Clay, Wednesday, 16 October 2019 22:16 (two years ago) link

Uh huh

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 17 October 2019 01:48 (two years ago) link

I’ll play, I’ve only done fantasy hoops like once in the past dozen years so I’m not particularly optimistic about my chances. I hear this Stephen Curry fellow is good at the shooting of basketballs from behind the three point line.

I also presume Doing Zion Shit will be a category, yes?

have never done hoops fantasy and think this might be bad for me so sure why not

zion dunks will be worth 3 points, zion blocks 2, zion steal and fast break dunk 5.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Thursday, 17 October 2019 05:11 (two years ago) link

I'm in!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 17 October 2019 12:33 (two years ago) link

Jerami Grant or Taurean Prince?

Heez, Thursday, 17 October 2019 15:26 (two years ago) link

i think prince will have more opportunity but if millsap gets injured then grant will be huge

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Thursday, 17 October 2019 15:50 (two years ago) link

thanks. i was put on the spot to pick a team name and choose trae don't huerter. hat tip to you

Heez, Thursday, 17 October 2019 15:58 (two years ago) link

nice...

Heez, you want in our ILH league?

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:07 (two years ago) link

no thanks. i can only handle one of these

Heez, Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:28 (two years ago) link

when are you sending invites, spotto. I could use a third league

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:32 (two years ago) link

Looks like we've got at least 8! for those that said they were in please send me an email (pop the levels at g male dot com) from your preferred email address and I'll get everyone plugged in. If anyone else come into the thread and wants to play you can send me an email as well and I'll cap it at 12.

I'll be using the Yahoo fantasy app so make sure you get that. Draft likely this Sunday or Monday evening. 8 category head to head.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:51 (two years ago) link

lol i'm having to delete my yahoo account and make a new one for this bc for whatever reason yahoo doesn't have my age information and i can't update it and you have to be 13 to play fantasy basketball. guys i made that account over 20 years ago..........

Clay, Friday, 18 October 2019 02:30 (two years ago) link

Haha you can use an existing gmail or another account to create a yahoo acct I think

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 03:07 (two years ago) link

it was a minor inconvenience, i ain't exactly spending hour after hour every day on yahoo dot com

Clay, Friday, 18 October 2019 03:23 (two years ago) link

just did a ten-team mock and ... i am gonna have to do a few more of these, feels like my hoops mind is stuck in like 2015

Clay, Friday, 18 October 2019 03:24 (two years ago) link

Word to the wise: don’t draft Carmelo

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 03:35 (two years ago) link

man, I haven't done a Yahoo fantasy league in years, signing up was a real trip down memory lane. seeing how I participated in a big NCAA tourney pool ten years ago put on by Clay Travis before he went full reactionary dickweed and finished 2nd out of 392.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Friday, 18 October 2019 13:28 (two years ago) link

i prefer yahoo to espn for one reason and one reason only: the lightning (start all active players) button.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 15:29 (two years ago) link

ok looks like i still need m bison, lavator and ulysses emails! lets goooooooo. draft is on sunday evening 845

we can hold four more as well if anyone else wants to join in just send me an email.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 15:39 (two years ago) link

sent

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 18 October 2019 16:09 (two years ago) link

We can always open it up to a few randos at the end if we want a shallower player pool

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 18 October 2019 17:11 (two years ago) link

true true. I am used to 8 team leagues and big rosters i kinda like it like that

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 17:26 (two years ago) link

Sent!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 18 October 2019 18:15 (two years ago) link

damn this draft is at 11:45 EST?! i didn't realize all of y'all were west coasters, it's no biggie but i think odds are very strong that i'll be autodrafting.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Friday, 18 October 2019 18:32 (two years ago) link

I'm east coast too - tbh 8:45 est would be tricky for me anyway putting kids to bed but yeah will probably have to do some autodrafting. I'll try to make it for the first few rounds tho

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 18 October 2019 18:43 (two years ago) link

no auto-drafting allowed (half joking, but like 50% of the fun of fantasy is the draft imo). what time would be work better? I just kind of threw that out for a first time. I could do mid day on Sunday like around 1:30-4pm pacific time or monday evening.

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 19:00 (two years ago) link

EST evening sunday will work otherwise i'm mostly screwed

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 18 October 2019 19:01 (two years ago) link

Honestly with this being a snake draft it’ll probably go pretty quick so I could possibly swing 1145. An hour or two earlier would be ideal but I can be amenable

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Friday, 18 October 2019 21:18 (two years ago) link

yeah my last one took about an hour - 8 teams snake draft 90 seconds for each pick. I changed this one to 60 seconds per pick should go even quicker

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 22:26 (two years ago) link

10 or 10:30 EST Sunday night would be ideal but could start as early as 9 or at the later pacific-friendly time

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 18 October 2019 23:01 (two years ago) link

my yahoo mail is roastingonanopenfire

i'm not a government man; i'm a government, man. (m bison), Friday, 18 October 2019 23:20 (two years ago) link

ok sending

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 23:20 (two years ago) link

let's get eight teams in this thing

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Saturday, 19 October 2019 20:05 (two years ago) link

no extra points for 3s, huh?

Jeff Bathos (symsymsym), Sunday, 20 October 2019 00:31 (two years ago) link

down for that, theyre already worth 3 of the points

i'm not a government man; i'm a government, man. (m bison), Sunday, 20 October 2019 00:36 (two years ago) link

oh wow that changes my draft strategy immensely, not doing %s either?

Clay, Sunday, 20 October 2019 00:55 (two years ago) link

so i did some Number Crunching in MicroSoft ExCel (the extra caps in SC stand for Sports Center)

using last year's data, the number one fantasy man per game using spottie's rules is james harden, the second is giannis, wow we got ourselves a mvp debate again!!!

i'm not a government man; i'm a government, man. (m bison), Sunday, 20 October 2019 01:19 (two years ago) link

also the player that most unfairly benefits from this scoring system is westbrook

i'm not a government man; i'm a government, man. (m bison), Sunday, 20 October 2019 01:33 (two years ago) link

i think percentages are really important for balance in fantasy hoops and would like to suggest we use them!

Clay, Sunday, 20 October 2019 01:45 (two years ago) link

i wish missed shots could be a negative value, it would really penalize low-efficiency volume shooting that gets the PPG up

i'm not a government man; i'm a government, man. (m bison), Sunday, 20 October 2019 01:47 (two years ago) link

altho there arent a lot of ppl other than westbrook who are getting rewarded here, its mostly a reflection of the best talent, though it does reward big men more than it prob should.

the average distribution of a player's Spottie points in this system goes like this (w some rounding):
47% from PPG
26% from RPG
16% from APG
11% from SPG
7% from BPG
-6% from TO/G

big men less likely to have high TO rates and more like to have big REB and BLK so thats why 6 of the top 11 players from 18-19 would be centers (davis 3rd, joel 5th, towns, jokic, drummond, vucevic 8th-11th)

Sorry, busy day. I made the roster space.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 3 March 2022 02:28 (four months ago) link

done

Spottie, Thursday, 3 March 2022 16:20 (four months ago) link

playoffs start next week!

Spottie, Thursday, 3 March 2022 23:46 (four months ago) link

i tip my hat to clay for reclaiming the coveted 2nd place in the standings just in time for it to mean a 1st rd bye in ye ole playoffs.

my team kinda fell back to earth across the board this past week, but i choose to blame my loss on harden taking his 5th game as a sizer off for load mgmt, bc who doesn't enjoy another reason to gripe about the beard

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 7 March 2022 14:59 (three months ago) link

always blame harden

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 7 March 2022 17:46 (three months ago) link

My 1-2 of Lillard-Davis isn't looking to hot, but nonetheless my team has been fairly scrappy lately.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 7 March 2022 18:29 (three months ago) link

losing chris paul was a pretty big hit

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 8 March 2022 05:19 (three months ago) link

i lost PG, Nurk and Dray. PG is p much impossible to replace, he was a top 3-5 dude before the injury. rough season for injuries and dudes missing time all around. might get dray back if i make it to the finals (not likely)

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Tuesday, 8 March 2022 05:38 (three months ago) link

well this is a nail biter

symsymsym, Monday, 14 March 2022 01:02 (three months ago) link

when did jonas valanciunas turn into the best player in the nba anyway

symsymsym, Monday, 14 March 2022 01:04 (three months ago) link

Wow yah very close!

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 14 March 2022 01:24 (three months ago) link

it's coming down to field goals made in the last game of the week

symsymsym, Monday, 14 March 2022 01:31 (three months ago) link

i lost PG, Nurk and Dray. PG is p much impossible to replace

you still scored eight billion points this week

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 14 March 2022 02:34 (three months ago) link

Lebron! And randomly got big games from fox and clarkson

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 14 March 2022 02:52 (three months ago) link

Sym i think you have been saved by the ineptitude of the lakers, given that my Suns have no need to play. But a nailbiter it was!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 14 March 2022 03:11 (three months ago) link

totally, I have a couple suns too, but your guys could have easily won with their regular allotment of minutes

symsymsym, Monday, 14 March 2022 04:10 (three months ago) link

really thought I was gonna blow one of those categories.

symsymsym, Monday, 14 March 2022 04:12 (three months ago) link

i have a huge blind spot in factoring in FG% and FT% to my lineup and add/drop decisions. have been losing those categories consistently all year. anyway, congrats sym, you're moving on to face the Dončićmacallit juggernaut, best of luck to ya

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 14 March 2022 14:06 (three months ago) link

uh oh...

symsymsym, Monday, 14 March 2022 15:00 (three months ago) link

hi dere

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Monday, 14 March 2022 17:27 (three months ago) link

not sure if i am gonna get some end of season benchings for key players to rest for playoff runs, you could upend me here

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Monday, 14 March 2022 17:28 (three months ago) link

My phone is a-buzzin’ with your desperation moves, forks. Sym going for the double upset Peacock special!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Sunday, 20 March 2022 16:48 (three months ago) link

better get my reinforcements in too then. gonna be close!

symsymsym, Sunday, 20 March 2022 17:01 (three months ago) link

meh, pulled a bad week

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 20 March 2022 20:09 (three months ago) link

many cheers for the underdogs

Clay, Monday, 21 March 2022 04:40 (three months ago) link

Good match clay, 5-4 and ~5 of those categories were close.

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 21 March 2022 04:41 (three months ago) link

i had 3 big contributors (+ myles turner who hasn't played since 2017 afaict) down for the whole week, too much to overcome!

Clay, Monday, 21 March 2022 04:51 (three months ago) link

the injury bug was hard to escape this season.

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 21 March 2022 16:25 (three months ago) link

the injury + protocols bug tbrr

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 21 March 2022 17:41 (three months ago) link

Lebron might not win much else this year but at least he has a very good shot at the I Love (Fantasy) Hoops title

symsymsym, Tuesday, 22 March 2022 02:25 (three months ago) link

Dude is fantasy gold right now

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Tuesday, 22 March 2022 03:20 (three months ago) link

He went late iirc!

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 22 March 2022 04:47 (three months ago) link

4th round 26th pick yup. probably even better for me has been garland who i got 10th round 74th pick.

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Tuesday, 22 March 2022 05:41 (three months ago) link

sym, weve got ourselves a battle. been trying to maximize my moves, ive picked up three players that instantly burned me... got hurt mid-game or decided not to play, seth curry, gallinari and winslow. i only got one game out of lebron in my finals week :( and looks like i wont get any more games from fox who had been on a tear. you lost sabonis and curry in the last two weeks. we're both scrapping. pretty much every category is within reach and we're relying on the tre manns and immanual quickleys of the world lol.

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Thursday, 24 March 2022 16:57 (three months ago) link

I have two Manns now! I am not sure whether they are related

symsymsym, Thursday, 24 March 2022 17:43 (three months ago) link

Is Lebron out for the rest of the week?

symsymsym, Thursday, 24 March 2022 17:43 (three months ago) link

only had two games this week and he sat the one out from last night. dont play again til monday

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Thursday, 24 March 2022 17:58 (three months ago) link

scared of the moment, classic

symsymsym, Thursday, 24 March 2022 18:15 (three months ago) link

I only beat one of the top 5 teams once in the regular season...H2H fantasy bball may not in fact be a meritocracy!

symsymsym, Thursday, 24 March 2022 18:17 (three months ago) link

theres quite a bit of luck involved especially this season. and it gets even crazier at the end of the season when teams start going into tank mode and sitting their best players and such.

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Thursday, 24 March 2022 18:28 (three months ago) link

you're welcome for seth btw

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 24 March 2022 21:19 (three months ago) link

im more appreciative for wiggins. only got 12 minutes of seth and no stats :)

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Thursday, 24 March 2022 21:29 (three months ago) link

fun season yall. til next year!

1st = Spottie
2nd = symsymsym
3rd = Clay

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 28 March 2022 17:24 (three months ago) link

congrats Spottie!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 28 March 2022 17:35 (three months ago) link

congratulations sir

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 28 March 2022 18:14 (three months ago) link

thanks!

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Monday, 28 March 2022 20:03 (three months ago) link

congrats on the win! glad I made it close at least

symsymsym, Tuesday, 29 March 2022 01:37 (three months ago) link

yeah big ups to spottie! not sure what to do with my life without constantly tooling with add/drops and available player blocks and shooting % averages over the last 14 days

Clay, Tuesday, 29 March 2022 01:58 (three months ago) link

Yah already tapped the app a few times out of muscle memory.

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Tuesday, 29 March 2022 15:54 (three months ago) link

ditto
