I've noticed commissioner Q renewed the league. Should we update the thread so new/old people can join?

OK guys, so it should be all set up. If you were in the league last year, you are automatically renewed to be in it this year. If you were in last year and want out, let me know. If you are new and want to play I can kick Kevin out like I did for football

Season is coming up fast, especially with the earlier start so draft is a week from today (Sunday) on October 8th

Thought I wasn't in the league last year and still got auto-renewed, just checked and turns out I was in the league but I disappeared after the draft afaik.
Despite my inactivity last season my team still finished 6th out of 18, you guys really suck to let an inactive team finish that high.

My team this season is quiresultan.

Draft is live in a half hour. IIRC you can log in half an hour early to see which pick you got. Also, I fixed the schedules so that you will play everyone in your division twice. Reminder that division winners make playoffs

I know it's already predraft and only 20 mins. before the draft but can the draft time be changed to 1 minute? 1 minute 30 seconds is too long for the live ones to wait for those damn autodrafts.

Auto draft picks are made after 10 seconds. They should not be ones you should be worried about.

nice to actually draft my team for a change. shout out to shadow for killing my battery. bastard! :lol:

berlin- there were a few guys you scooped before my picks but it was novu with the ultimate cockblock by picking markannen way early. kudos though

16 team team drafts are fun. you hope the 1 or 2 guys you target are on still on the board, get your hopes high , than they're gone when right before it's your turn.

my team's meh. nabbed 2 C's right away so didn't have to worry about chasing to fill the position later. half thought about drafting LBJ but the Brow will do

Only one I regret drafting was Tristan Kardashian.
I trust Pop in what he said about involving Aldridge more in offense than NLSC analysts, at worst he gets traded which is still a good thing.
Kyrie is gonna die trying to be the league scoring leader, he wants to be the man like Westbrook, Curry, Wall, Harden, or even Thomas in Boston so bad that he left LeBron before LeBron could leave him.

Due to large volume of requests rapidly filling up my mail box, here is the in-depth draft analysis on some notable teams.

Jeremy Lin Bandwagon: Are you sure this is not an autodrafted team?

QuireSultan: This guy has no idea at all what fantasball is. It's insulting to our prestigious league.
DRose Sex Belt: If the losing was the purpose of fantasyball, this guy's done it to near perfection.
airBerLIN'S DREADLOX: You very rarely see people fucking up with early round picks but this guy somehow pulled it off. Excellent job.
Average Joe's: Average, this guy realizes exactly who he is. Almost too much.

Pulled the trigger. Any thoughts on the trade? I practically moved up to 7th round by spending lower round picks.

Donovan Mitchell (13th round)
Lauri Markkenen (10th round)
Wesley Matthews (8th round)

FOR

Dirk Nowitzki (7th round)

A bit risky in my opinion. The Mavs have almost 0 chances to make the playoffs. He might get shut down at some point. I don't know if I would've pulled the trigger for a straight up Matthews for Nowitzki trade. Maybe you'll have some luck and father time won't show his impact on Dirk's game.

Yeah tbh I dunno how much he's really gonna play this year, and if he does play he might be okay being the second or third option

Then again I dunno how much those other two guys in the trade will do either so it might be an even swap

There's no benefit of shutting down Dirk, he's old so no need to think about his future in the league like young players do, playing or not Mavs won't make the playoffs anyway.
Dirk will continue to be played to stat pad his career numbers before he retires.
Only sure thing are he won't be the first option anymore and his minutes will be limited to keep him healthy and keep the stat pad going.

novu swindled someone again.

The official injury report states he has a "discolated ankle and a broken tibia" though. I didn't watch closely when the thing happened, but the injury looked spiral to me.
