    I created a fantasy league for us here at MacRumors, and if anyone is interested in joining, let me know. I set it to 12 teams, but that can always be changed. Lets see if we can 10+ members who would be interested in joining.

    I might be interested in that. I should add the proviso that I don't follow basketball – or really know anything about the sport – but the same is true about American football and I've enjoyed taking part in mscriv's fantasy leagues the past two seasons. If anything, I view my complete lack of knowledge as an added challenge. :p

    I should add that I'm over 6ft so that fact should qualify me in itself. ;)

    Might I ask who you've set the league up with?

    I set it up with ESPN, because it would be an easier transition for us that was in the Fantasy NFL league.

    Might be worthwhile making mention of your idea in the main NBA thread, The.316 – probably the place where those who would be most interested would be most likely to see it.

    Ace. :)

    Meanwhile, while I may not know a lot about the sport myself I do know someone who met Lebron James a few weeks ago so I've got someone to turn to for research purposes. Mind, he wasn't sure beforehand if Mr James was a basketball or baseball player. :p

    I'll join. Never tried NBA fantasy, but I'm up for the challenge.

    By my reckoning then that's eight interested bodies, The.316 – enough as a bare minimum?

    Eight so far huh, that seems to be good. There will be A LOT of talent available, so we should see some good competition.

    So we have so far:

    Me
    Jaffa Cake
    Queen of Spades
    donga
    dukebound85
    Moyank24
    Abstract
    Dandaman

    Lets see if we can get to 10 by tomorrow. If not, we can then see when we want to set up the draft. It has to be some time before Sunday, since the season starts Sunday. Maybe Saturday afternoon?

    That would make it Saturday evening here, which I can't do as we're off out Christmas Eve.

    But if it's a convenient time for everyone else, don't worry about me – I know it's awkward with me being in a completely different time zone and I'm happy to go with what's best for the majority of players. I'll set up player choices on the fantasy site and get that to make the picks for me. Hopefully as we have only eight teams there should still be enough decent players if I want to make some changes to my side. :)

    Not sure how the draft works, but I can do it if Jaffa can do it. ;)

    Oh, it's easy — you just pick the players with the funniest sounding names.

    Jaffa = tactical genius :)

    You're right. Jaffa Cake is a rather funny sounding name. It all makes sense now.

    Alternatively, rank the players in order of height (hint, the better players tend to be the taller ones).

    So we have seven teams so far, and Im waiting for Abstract to answer the invite. I have myself as two teams, because I am holding a spot for a friend of mine. I think I might be waiting for one more person from here to accept the invite, but I cant figure out who since most of the team names have been changed already. With the season starting Sunday, I figure we need to do the draft some time Saturday. Anyone have a problem with that?

    If there isn't any room, we can kick rick snagwell out. No Lakers fans allowed.

    Only Englishmen, women, and Don't panic. :D
