I have now finalized the comp, we are locked and loaded.

8 teams means everyone will have a stacked team, free agency will have plenty of depth during the yr, but at the rate injuries are happening atm we might need all the depth we can get :lol:

I got the yahoo draft app. I have my niece's Bday at that time so will be handy. I did a mock draft on it and it seems simple enough.

I got the app as well, it's pretty good.

If anyone else can't make it get the app or you can just go on the site with google chrome on your phone, 8 teams won't take too long to draft 14 players each.

I'll send out a comp email draft reminder tomorrow or friday.

Yeah I pretty much went best available for the first few rounds and then ended up having to scramble for (injured) guards later on... :opps

That draft was fun. I was happy getting Jabari to look after the 3 while KD recovers.

I'm keen to see what Nik Vucevic and Jimmy Butler will do this year, If they stay injury free look out. Hopefully the Raptors let JV loose and give him big minutes.

45 minutes to do the whole draft is what I'm talking about :D

Are you guys ready to rumble, the NBA season starts on Wednesday, thank god :D finally a decent sport to watch and the best fantasy.

I hope you all have worked out how to select your teams or makes changes each day, the site is easy to use. Go to my team and select the day on the left, you can open it in a dropbox to select the days.

This yr they have added a "select active players" button just above your players stats, click that and it will select active players for you, it will be good when you have 10 or less players on certain days.

You can change players by clicking on a player and the positions he can be moved to will turn green.

The app is easy to do your team as well.

Yeah we are first up, looking forward to another nba fantasy season.

I'm happy knowing KD is stashed away on my team until most likely mid December. Jabari and Jimmy Butler can look after the 3 until then :)

Hopefully everyone can stay active and the comp should be good.

I picked up KD on my other fantasy team. Got him 7th pick. I have Jabari also on that team too. He has show promising signs in the pre season. Took it to Wiggins when they played.

12 months ago all the talk was Wiggins, not now though, Jabari is a class above right now, he has come in NBA ready.

I got KD in my other comp as well, a few of those guys thought he would be available in the 2nd or 3rd round :lol: in head to head he's still an early pick, having him miss games now is no big deal, I'd rather have him fit and firing in Jan, Feb, March and April.

3 days in and the NQ Magic are Droppin Dimes on Droppin Dimes :P

My assists and rebounds are going great so far, apart from shooting and free throws :lol: Rondo had a pretty much perfect return, almost a triple double, Vucevic with two nice games to start the season.

Embarrassing start for LBJ and the Cavs losing to the Knicks :o

Bulls and Cavs tomorrow on ESPN, also Clippers and Lakers.

Lakers are in for a long year I think.

OKC must of killed a few black cats or walked under too many ladders, the injury toll is getting worse.

Westbrook out 4-6 weeks.

Pineappled myself big time. Had my team set for Saturday due to being out all day. Must have accidently hit Start Active Players. Klay Thompson (41pts inc 5 x 3pt) and Steph Curry (31 pts + 10 Asts) both benched. Korver (9 pts) and Wroten (21 pts) were shifted to starters.

Haha that is a rather big pineapple indeed, but it happens at time.

I did the same thing yesterday, I thought I'd need a few more assists and was going to play Elfrid Payton but I forgot to put him in in the morning and he got 8 or 9 assists :lol:

Tony Wroten is a nice pickup, he can fill the stat sheet, surely when MCW returns he moves over and plays SG, I have him in my other team, I like him.

Two 7-6 wins so I'm sitting down in 4th at the moment. Not looking good, I need to get a head start on Millsy before KD is back. :lol:
