Just wanted to give a quick update on our 'for fun' fantasy basketball league over on ESPN. It's been fun, but challenging mainly due to a few things: Playing a 20 team league was a bad idea (I felt bad leaving people out though!). Also, asking random people (BE readers) to join with no idea how committed they will be turned out to backfire. (Thanks for wasting our time, guys.)
The good news is that out of 20 teams, 14 are active. (Some more than others, but hey!) We've recently done a redraft (went quite well with added points of Blazer homerism!) :) -- We're also looking for one more owner to take over a team (an inactive team that's still in 5th place and has Kevin Durant.)
So, if you are active and good natured and want to join us, drop your email here or directly to me on the ESPN site. The link: http://games.espn.go.com/fba/leagueoffice?leagueId=10719&seasonId=2014
Lastly, some Blazersedge Fantasy Basketball League FUN FACTS:
- Team Can has an astounding 27 waiver pickups, nearly double the next person (16).
- The team with the #1 pick became inactive shortly after the season started. Way to go man!
- The #3 pick was actually CP3, but for some unknown reason, James Harden was chosen instead. (Can vouch for this!)
- A stellar trade for Kevin Durant was made shortly after the season started; the team owner became inactive shortly after.
- During the redraft, which was manual, players had about a 24 hour period to chose from the pool of players from the inactive teams. The threat at failing to respond was OJ Mayo being permanently added to your roster. All teams chose promptly until the 3rd round.
- The best team name in the league, by far, is: the Olympic Dickpunchers.
