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 (four years ago) link

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

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

Uh huh

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 17 October 2019 01:48 (four 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?

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 (four years ago) link

I'm in!

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

Jerami Grant or Taurean Prince?

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

nice...

Heez, you want in our ILH league?

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

no thanks. i can only handle one of these

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

Word to the wise: don’t draft Carmelo

de-mamba mentality (Spottie), Friday, 18 October 2019 03:35 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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.

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

Sent!

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

EST evening sunday will work otherwise i'm mostly screwed

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 18 October 2019 19:01 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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

ok sending

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

let's get eight teams in this thing

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

no extra points for 3s, huh?

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

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

Clay, Sunday, 20 October 2019 00:55 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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)

who can deny that jimmy butler has teeth, which may impact his ability to play basketball

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 23 October 2023 16:59 (five months ago) link

forks hasn't accessed his team since the league renewal went out in September, btw. I think he's likely a ghost team.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 24 October 2023 17:10 (five months ago) link

wonder if i can switch him to a bot managed team

infinite wiggles (Spottie), Tuesday, 24 October 2023 17:26 (five months ago) link

ITEM! Wiggles adds Wiggins, rest of league wigging out!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Saturday, 28 October 2023 23:37 (five months ago) link

OK I may be a little stoned right now as that notification popped up on my phone, but I do think it would be an excellent idea for Hoopshype to write all their rumor headlines in the style of an Old Hollywood gossip column

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Saturday, 28 October 2023 23:41 (five months ago) link

hot scoop!

Is it possible? I’ve never done it

infinite wiggles (Spottie), Monday, 6 November 2023 01:29 (five months ago) link

I'm not commissioning a hoops league but in football there's a Transfer Team option under "manage other teams" in the commissioner menu

symsymsym, Monday, 6 November 2023 01:32 (five months ago) link

ok i figured it out. can you send me their email address? you can send through ilxor mail or drop it here in hidden text with broken formatting.

three weeks pass...

Why is it that Miles Bridges was deemed untouchable when Spottie picked him up last year but this year it's okay?

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Saturday, 2 December 2023 18:52 (four months ago) link

didnt see who picked him up, he should still be in free agent hell 4ever

polyamerie "it's more than this 1 thing" (m bison), Saturday, 2 December 2023 18:55 (four months ago) link

Yah I don’t think we stated anything explicitly but it was an unwritten thing. Looks like Jrues Holiday got him

infinite wiggles (Spottie), Saturday, 2 December 2023 21:22 (four months ago) link

admittedly I picked him up in my other league because I have bad values lol

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Saturday, 2 December 2023 21:24 (four months ago) link

Uhh yeah i picked him up. It was like I was just sitting there in the experiment room staring at the marshmallow. I know, I’m going to hell

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Sunday, 3 December 2023 05:36 (four months ago) link

based on me telling my friend league rules don't allow him to pick up Bridges, I vote for Bridges being turfed.

symsymsym, Monday, 4 December 2023 15:26 (four months ago) link

the IST will play havoc with fantasy this week, players need to win to get more games...

i need the world to know that the battle between spottie and i for 3rd place was closer than the 7-2 score would have you believe

Yah man that was so close lol. Separated by two fgm, ONE point, three rebounds
