    Melbourne Tigers have signed Patty Mills. Instead of an NBA fantasy season might have to do an NBL one.

    Soups, the more the merrier! Although we are yet to decide how many teams per league etc.

    Does anyone remember who it was last year that was trying to get an NBL league going? A couple of us joined, myself included but I didn't do much after selecting my original team.
    Could be fun if the NBA doesn't get of the ground

    Looks like things are starting to happen with the NBA. Derek Fisher from the players union told players yesterday to expect an NBA season this year and to get ready for it.

    Still a lot of work to be done to get all the issues resolved but lets hope something does eventuate. training camps start at the beginning of October and the proper season starts on Oct 28.

    I need my ESPN NBA fantasy fix over the summer!!!!

    Great news steve lets hope the negotiations dont hit a wall again.
    Gotta play one fantasy game where I'm a chance at winning. EPL-I,Suck, DT/SC ok but not great, and still feeling the pain from the bombers on the weekend.
    Lets get it all set up so we're not rushing if it kicks off sooner than we think.

    It doesn't look good at all. commentators saying best case scenario is shortened season starting in 2012. But if the NFL could sort it out, hopefully NBA parties get their act together.

    Been mucking around on w mock drafts on YahooSports fantasy basketball for bit of off-season fun. Can't seem to find mock drafts for ESPN.

    Ant - might also want to extend the draft date - there's a countdown clock that says our draft starts 1st October.

    Carn Blues for this weekend! No Gibbs/Kruz will make it difficult - but quietly confident we can make it competitive.

    Yeah I'll extend the draft date out - I was extremely hopefull [read delusional] when I set that date!

    Dan, you're right (at first I wrote tight instead of right - there's a Freudian slip if ever there was one... Anyone that tried to trade with dan last season will know what I mean lol)

    Anyway, you are right that we should sort things out. I'll set up a thread on main page soon. Im real busy tonight and tomorrow, but hopefully next week.

    Also, registrations for fantasy NBL have now opened. Are others still interested in an NBL league? I am.
