I like the idea of $10. It's not much, but I know fantasy basketball isn't all that popular so maybe it'll entice some more people to join.

Draft order is randomized prior to the draft. I feel like snake is a little better for newcomers (like myself), that's all.

ESPN auto determines it but you have to click the randomize button or it'll just keep the order that I put the teams in.

I can put you on the waitlist if you want. If we get one more person that'd give us 12 and that would work.

Should have stuck with 10 on a beginners league. None of us know the depth, better to keep the talent pool fat so we can all eat. 12 teams will be a straight up famine. I didn't chime in on this sooner because I could have sworn when we had 10 you said that's a wrap. Oh well.

I propose we make our team names "Team GTZusername"

It's not creative but otherwise it sucks to have no idea which player is which user.

I agree. After looking through the numbers, I think 10 teams is the max we should do. I'm going to close it at 10 and keep it there.

You can set up your priority ahead of time in case you can't make it. ESPN lets you do that.

I agree. It works well in the football league. Makes trades easier to work as well since you know who you're dealing with.

Couple minor suggestions:

League open to public view and 1 bench spot seems like too little. Also is the draft order being done by video hat picking. I'll do it if we're doing that. I'm off the next two days, work Friday, wedding sat, off sun, mon and have minor surgery on tues. I'll have my girl film it and post it on you tube then in the thread, I mean unless someone's already on top of it. Let me know I haven't read every post in the thread.

Should we do first team picked is 1 and so on or first team picked is 10, 9, 8 and so on till we build to who gets the first pick? Unless someone tells me otherwise I'll write up everyone's name on a piece of paper and get crap ready to go. Ill cut them up lay them out and when my girl gets back from getting her hair done I'll have her film me toss them in my Dodgers hat and do it. Let me know you rotten bums.

What are you guys seeing? I'm seeing 3 bench spots and that's the way the league is setup.

As for the draft, if you can do that video Prime that would be awesome and I'd appreciate it. I would count down from 10. Kind of build the suspense as to who's going to get the number 1 pick. I like that.
