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?

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)

class project pat (m bison), Monday, 25 October 2021 01:54 (two months ago) link

not sure if i like this team better than an autodraft but at least i don't have kyrie

all the headache players went to the robot team, perfect system

symsymsym, Monday, 25 October 2021 04:52 (two months ago) link

Gotta love it lol

It's the Final Cluntdiwn (Spottie), Monday, 25 October 2021 06:04 (two months ago) link

Algorithm successfully loaded me up with Celtics but punished me for autodrafting by giving me Harden. Even once he inevitably gets it together and figures out his new schemes I will not enjoy rooting for him. Oh well

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 25 October 2021 14:05 (two months ago) link

hey guys, not in your league, but would you trade MPJ for Booker straight up?

Heez, Thursday, 28 October 2021 13:48 (two months ago) link

Whoever gets Booker is winning that trade easily

It's the Final Cluntdiwn (Spottie), Thursday, 28 October 2021 14:56 (two months ago) link

that would be me. thanks spottie!

Heez, Thursday, 28 October 2021 15:26 (two months ago) link

It depends on your stats. MPJ doesn't foul, which can make a big difference. But it's a fair trade imo

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 28 October 2021 17:39 (two months ago) link

the assist numbers are enough to make a major difference. both are starting the season slow

It's the Final Cluntdiwn (Spottie), Thursday, 28 October 2021 18:13 (two months ago) link

Clay your team is insane. Your boys are COOKIN

It's the Final Cluntdiwn (Spottie), Thursday, 4 November 2021 04:42 (two months ago) link

yeah i've been lucky that my top, like, 10 or 12 guys are shredding it right now, and i grabbed cole anthony just after the draft and he's on a crazy heater. i'm sure it'll all stay this way and nothing will change!

Clay, Thursday, 4 November 2021 05:27 (two months ago) link

that's generally how this works

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 4 November 2021 05:32 (two months ago) link

three weeks pass...

ugh, I fat-fingered my attempt to drop finney-smith and accidentally dropped maxey. would anyone object to a mod correction?

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Sunday, 28 November 2021 17:49 (one month ago) link

no objection from me

class project pat (m bison), Sunday, 28 November 2021 18:09 (one month ago) link

it's fine

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 28 November 2021 18:47 (one month ago) link

I dropped DFS but it won’t let me add him back until you activate mitch rob off the IR. Let me know when you’ve got an empty roster spot so I can add Maxey back

Spottie, Sunday, 28 November 2021 18:51 (one month ago) link

aight cool i dropped mitch rob

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Sunday, 28 November 2021 19:04 (one month ago) link

Done

Spottie, Sunday, 28 November 2021 19:21 (one month ago) link

After next week, Week 8, everyone will have played the managerless team once.

I'm fine with leaving things as they are, but it might be fun to have those players in play in the league.

Hypothetically, if we drafted the managerless team onto our rosters, it might look... a little something... like this:

1-1. bison: doncic
1-2. me: beal
1-3. sym: embiid
1-4. dnp: hayward
1-5. spottie: westbrook
1-6. clay: lonzo
1-7. forks: russell
2-1. forks: richuan
2-2. clay: porzingis
2-3. spottie: graham
2-4. dnp: ben simmons
2-5. sym: stewart
2-6. me: kyrie
2-7. bison: noel

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 6 December 2021 01:43 (one month ago) link

that makes me want to start a poll re: who is more likely to play this year, simmons or kyrie

Clay, Monday, 6 December 2021 01:46 (one month ago) link

that would be cool

Spottie, Monday, 6 December 2021 16:17 (one month ago) link

it would be cool if i didn't draft last

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Monday, 6 December 2021 20:11 (one month ago) link

haha yeah

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 7 December 2021 01:06 (one month ago) link

Yah I want no part of Russ lol

Spottie, Tuesday, 7 December 2021 01:34 (one month ago) link

sooooo that's seven players out...

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 15 December 2021 18:06 (one month ago) link

yeah its rough out there right now.

Spottie, Wednesday, 15 December 2021 20:57 (one month ago) link

can sports stop for a couple weeks? the current protocols seem totally unequipped to deal with omicron

symsymsym, Wednesday, 15 December 2021 22:34 (one month ago) link

I have 12 on IR lol

Spottie, Tuesday, 28 December 2021 20:00 (three weeks ago) link

two weeks pass...

so I accidentally dropped simons while trying to drop amir coffey, could I get a mulligan?

Clay, Friday, 14 January 2022 20:01 (six days ago) link

fine with me but why not just leave him there so i can have him :(

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 14 January 2022 20:24 (six days ago) link

i love him for sentimental reasons

Clay, Friday, 14 January 2022 20:26 (six days ago) link

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 14 January 2022 20:29 (six days ago) link

class project pat (m bison), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 22:58 (yesterday) link

i think what ive realized is *mad men music* i only like the beginning of things (drafts), the actual setting lineups and researching players who suck less than mine just feels like work in a way that i do not enjoy, anyone wanna do trades lemme know

class project pat (m bison), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:00 (yesterday) link

i'll take trae off your hands

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:04 (yesterday) link

lets get a bidding war going imo, i will accept ilxcoin

class project pat (m bison), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:12 (yesterday) link

hah no firesale trades

you can just hit that 'start active players for the week' button on every sunday and be set!

Spottie, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:22 (yesterday) link

class project pat (m bison), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:33 (yesterday) link

its shit like this where im reminded that i probably have adhd

class project pat (m bison), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:33 (yesterday) link

Spottie, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:36 (yesterday) link
