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 (three years ago) link

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

Uh huh

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

I'm in!

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

Jerami Grant or Taurean Prince?

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

nice...

Heez, you want in our ILH league?

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

no thanks. i can only handle one of these

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

Word to the wise: don’t draft Carmelo

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

sent

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

Sent!

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

EST evening sunday will work otherwise i'm mostly screwed

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

ok sending

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

let's get eight teams in this thing

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

no extra points for 3s, huh?

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

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

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

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 4 October 2022 16:14 (two months ago) link

how does sunday night work for everyone? whats the latest everyone can start?

Spottie, Thursday, 13 October 2022 22:04 (one month ago) link

Can we try to get an 8th playa and avoid a robo team?

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 13 October 2022 22:15 (one month ago) link

for sure, thats preferred. you know anyone? we try every year on ilh and can never get more than what we have here

Spottie, Thursday, 13 October 2022 23:04 (one month ago) link

trick one of the ilbaseball ppl into it, tell them the nba stands for national baseball association

terence trent d'ilfer (m bison), Thursday, 13 October 2022 23:10 (one month ago) link

hahaaa

Spottie, Thursday, 13 October 2022 23:17 (one month ago) link

What if we switched to roto? Then there's no matchups ... the number of players wouldn't matter.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 14 October 2022 04:47 (one month ago) link

I’ve never done it, is it easy?

Spottie, Friday, 14 October 2022 05:52 (one month ago) link

roto's way less fun imo

Clay, Friday, 14 October 2022 05:58 (one month ago) link

roto's a lot more fair but yeah less fun

symsymsym, Friday, 14 October 2022 06:15 (one month ago) link

fun > fair

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 14 October 2022 12:48 (one month ago) link

um, what happened here exactly? Do we wanna draft tomorrow late night?

oh yeah we should do this tomorrow (night)

Clay, Monday, 17 October 2022 03:42 (one month ago) link

ive got another draft tomorrow night. i can do tues or wed, you can still do it after the season starts.

Spottie, Monday, 17 October 2022 06:00 (one month ago) link

I have a buddy who will be an 8th. What’s the draft plan?

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 00:45 (one month ago) link

Nice, tomorrow night or Wednesday night after 8 pacific works for me. I can set it up to start games next week. Could also do this weekend if that’s better for folks.

Spottie, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 01:00 (one month ago) link

tomorrow or wednesday's great for me, would prefer to do it with as little actual games played as possible

per Ham (Clay), Tuesday, 18 October 2022 01:04 (one month ago) link

I could also do like daytime tomorrow afternoon like between 3-5pm pacific before games start but I realize that’s prob not optimal for everyone, just throwing it out there

Spottie, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 01:10 (one month ago) link

spottie, can you mail the league when you set a time please? I'd push for late night EST if we're doing it this week.

Morning all. 3-5 pacific won’t work for me today or tomorrow. Ideal will be in the 9-12pm eastern/6-9 pacific range, can do that today or tomorrow. Thursday wouldn’t be able to do the first hour of that window but latter two still good.

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 10:39 (one month ago) link

alright yall, I'm setting it for 8:20 pacific tonight. I'll set the time for each pick a little faster so we should be able to get through it in about 45 minutes. Hope yall can make it.

Spottie, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 16:08 (one month ago) link

sounds good!

symsymsym, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 16:15 (one month ago) link

Spottie, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 16:18 (one month ago) link

Clay, Monday, 24 October 2022 22:37 (one month ago) link

Spottie, Monday, 24 October 2022 22:42 (one month ago) link

Hi, I’m Lavator S. and I drafted Ben Simmons.

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 27 October 2022 14:01 (one month ago) link

I accidentally dropped kyle lowry on my phone - and of course he finally has his first good game right after

symsymsym, Thursday, 27 October 2022 15:34 (one month ago) link

I can add him back. Just make sure you have a spot open for him

Spottie, Thursday, 27 October 2022 16:00 (one month ago) link

Hi, I’m Lavator S. and I drafted Ben Simmons.
