I am trying to learn how fantasy basketball works

Auction would be best just to give it as close to an Otto feel as possible, no?


#22

Honestly I think auctioning will be even harder when not all of us know all the players. A snake draft would take a bit of the strategy out of it, which I think would be easier on us when many of us are basketball novices. And we’re really more looking at the in-season play, right? We all know how auctions work, but I don’t think we necessarily need to actually do an auction for this league.


#23

That said I’m not THAT strongly opposed. If you guys want to do an auction I’ll roll with it!


#24

I’m pro snake draft. just trying to learn in-season. happy to do auction if it will keep more people engaged


#25

It doesn’t matter to me. Since it’s more of a learning experience either way is fine with me.


#26

Hi how’s the research on scoring going. Any updates?


#27

We are doing full season points, using points, blocks, steals, assists, rebounds, and turnovers (-1)


#28

My personal goal, assuming I can’t win this league against actual basketball fans, is going to be to have the most blocks (while doing the best I can overall, of course). I want to watch highlights of my players blocking shots all day.

Quick question - what’s up with the limit on Centers when you look at the roster rules? Most positions say “no limit” or “n/a” but for Center there’s a limit of 2. 2 of what, you can only have two Centers on your roster? Or you can only start 2 in a lineup? Or something else?

You can only have 2 - there aren’t really a ton of centers out there, and we didn’t want someone snagging all of them. Kind of an interesting limitation, very specific to the NBA in its current form.
