Every once in a while some folks affiliated with the online basketball scene want to help us out with funds for our jersey contest and t-shirts in exchange for a quick mention. This is one of those posts. PASPN runs a fantasy basketball league and they create leagues for each individual website they service. Blazersedge is among those. It will have its own, specific league for you to participate in. Here are the details they want you to know.
There will be 30 General Manager spots available: one for each NBA franchise. Since this is a new league, we will start by taking over each team's existing contracts. After that, it's up to you to re-tool your team via trades, draft picks, and free agent signings to form the best team that you can. Since PASPN leagues are governed by the rules of the NBA's collective bargaining agreement (CBA), the Mock GM game mixes fantasy basketball playing with the realities of the business of the NBA.
Once the NBA regular season begins, we will compete in an 18-week Head-to-Head season, where each team has a new opponent every week. You start 8 players (PG, SG, SF, PF, C, UTIL, UTIL, UTIL), and whoever scores more fantasy points wins the matchup. The scoring system is based on NBA.com's Efficiency rating: ((PTS + TRB + AST + STL + BLK) - ((FGA - FGM) + (FTA - FTM) + TOV )). The top 16 teams qualify for the Playoffs, which take place during the final 4 weeks of the regular season.
If this sounds like your idea of a good time, here is the link for the BE league. Channel your inner Kevin Pritchard (or, if you choose, Chris Wallace) and knock yourselves out!
P.S. Apparently the first BE league is full so a second one has been opened here.
