I have been obsessed with this fantasy game on NBA.com since the season has started. Basically, each player is worth a certain amount of money as a stock. You start with $300 and try to build a team and get the most points you can. The scoring system is a little different, but still understandable.

I created a league on their if other people want to join. The league is called Wissports League, and the password is wissports. If anyone want to join the league just leave your e-mail and I will send you an invite.

I have had a blast doing it, I would recommend other people try it out.

Do you have to send an invite in order for me to get into the league? Do I have to create a team first?

But I want in. j_rode@hotmail.com

Do you buy players each day? Or what?

Yup, you buy players each day. The key is, at each position you only have 82 games. So you can't just load up and have a full roster for each day of the season, because then you will be out of games pretty quick. Also, if you pick a player up and play him on the same day, he is locked on your team for a total of 2 days, so back to backs are crucial.

This is the scoring system:
Field Goals Missed (FGMI) -0.46
Field Goals Made (FGMA) 0.54
Free Throw Missed (FTMI) -0.75
Free Throw Made (FTMA) 0.25
Points Scored (PT) 0.50
3-point Shots Made (3PT) 1.00
Total Rebounds (REB) 1.50
Assists (AST) 1.99
Steals (ST) 3.00
Turnovers (TO) -2.00
Blocked Shots (BLK) 3.00

So as you can see, points are only a small part of the game. A guy who gets a bunch of rebounds/assists/steals/blocks is more valuable then a player who will get 30 points on 10-25 shooting.

Like the normal stock exchange, buying low and selling high is a huge part of the game. Before the season I bought Deron Williams for $55, and then he went down with his ankle injury. Since most people sold him right away, his price dropped down to $30 before I had even realized he was hurt. Instead of eating the $25 loss, I kept him on my roster, and now he is almost back up to his original market price. Recently I picked up Josh Smith and Manu Ginobli to sit on my bench while they were injured, hoping I would gain a lot of money on them once they came back. I haven't been able to gain much of anything on Manu, but when Smith comes back I am going to rake in a large profit. Right now my team is worth $355, so I have made an additional $55 that I can now spend on players.

Let me clarify the bolded part. You can buy a player and keep him for the entire season. But you can also buy and sell your players daily, with the price dependent upon the market. The market is determined by all the players in the world that are playing the game.

Like I said, for each position you get 82 games, so since you guys are going to be behind me in games played, you will be able to play guys most everyday until you are back on pace.


[ul]PG: 18/82 (+1)SG: 18/82 (+1)G: 18/82 (+1)SF: 17/82 (0)PF: 17/82 (0)F: 17/82 (0)FC: 17/82 (0)C: 18/82 (+1)UTIL: 19/82 (+2) [/ul] That is my pace for right now, so as you can see I am a little ahead in some positions. As of right now I will be way ahead of you guys in points, but since I can only have 82 games at each position, you all have the opportunity to catch up.

Also, like I said in the post, if you pick a player up and play him that same day, then he is locked on your roster for two days. For instance, yesterday I picked up and played Mario Chalmers (because everybody goes off on the Warriors/Knicks) so he was locked on my roster for today. But I can sell him once the market opens at 7am tomorrow.

The best advice I have: Buy Low, Sell High.
