Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Yao Ming's Career Memorial Thread

deadonthestreetdeadonthestreet Registered User regular
Welcome to the 2008-2009 NBA season. Will the Celtics repeat? Will Starbury find a job? Will the Blazers actually be good, or will Oden's kneecaps fall off? Chris Paul or BronBron for MVP?

If anyone wants to make a fantasy league, I'll advertise it in the OP/title

    I'm a tentative "yay" on the fantasy league, but I'm nervous I'm going to put too much on my plate and neglect it again. Count me as a strong reserve, though, if you fail to fill up the league.

    Also -- Blazers will win 48 games. No more, no less. You heard it here first.

    Am I dumb or is that ID/Pass combo not working?

    EDIT: nm, caps counts when typing the password, and it's lowercase (i.e. pa) rather than uppercase (i.e. PA)

    If it isn't working, try it without caps?

    the password is not capitalized fyi

    also, i would submit that people need not bother joining as the sp00ns have thrown their lots in and the season is now a foregone conclusion

    Man, think how fucked we'd be if you'd typed "pA" or something.

    EDIT: Do I have to actually be on during the time the Draft happens? Because I for sure am going to be in class on Monday at 5:15.

    Defending champs are in.

    Hopefully my draft turns out at lucky as it did last year. Paul #12, Camby #17, Granger #73, Kaman #96.

    Oh, and if you're not online when the draft starts Yahoo will pick for you based on your pre-rankings.

    Knicks Sign Allan Houston

    and

    Jason Williams Retires

    Houston hasn't been in the league for 3 years. And Williams just signed as a free agent with the Clippers last month.

    I'm in.

    edit: Monday @ 5PM PDT I will be in lab.

    Anyway can we push the draft date back to sometime this weekend or maybe push it off until Wednesday at 5:15 (I have class at 5 Tuesday also) or later Monday (like 7PM PDT)?

    If not, then cool i'll try to do the pre-draft rankings as best I can.

    After inadvertently being poked in the eye by Boris Diaw in practice, [Amare] Stoudemire suffered a partially torn iris, an injury which, while relatively minor, has a high incidence of reaggravation. Consequently, team physicians are advising Amare to take precautionary measures.

    Fortunately for fans of old-school fashion, that means there’s a good chance we’ll see STAT rocking goggles on a permanent basis.

    I've never done a fantasy league before despite having watched basketball since before I could walk, so I have a question.

    How many people should I put in my pre-draft rankings if I don't want my guys to be drafted according to their default rankings in the later rounds? I'm not going to able to reach a computer during the draft on Wednesday so from what I understand it's all going to be left up to my pre-draft rankings.

    There are going to be like 14 or 16 teams, depending on if we want more people in, and 11 players per team so that works out to something like 160-176

    Actually, do we want 16 teams or 18?

    We have really shallow teams so we can afford to have more of them.

    deadonthestreet on
  • BubbaTBubbaT Registered User regular
    edited October 2008
    Do we even have 18 people who want to play? Right now there's 13 signed up.

    I've played in an 18-team league before, and it's significantly harder than the standard 12-team setup. Picking the Lebrons and Kobes is easy, having a win or loss decided by Sasha Vujacic vs Chris Quinn not so much.
