Fantastic to see we're all set for a new season of fantasy NBA here at TooSerious.
In a late scramble, we ended up with 4 teams of 12 again! and even had an extra waiting in the wings, sorry @protraj keep us in mind for next season, hopefully we can get you into a league. It would be great to even expand to have more Division 2 leagues next season.
For any of you who are new to this in any way, please feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments in the threads on this basketball forum.
We have set up a thread for chatter throughout the season: HERE
Opening night is upon us!
We had all four drafts at the same time last Sunday night Australian time and they have thrown up some interesting results.
All up we had 177 drafted players.
In the list below, Ive given a value of 157 to any players who were undrafted in any particular league.
Giannis went at #1 in three leagues with Anthony Davis getting the nod in the other. Somehow (presumably injury worries) AD slipped to #4 in one league!
Harden and Durant were picked 3rd and 6th respectively, in all 4 leagues, whilst LeBron and KAT joined them to make up the consensus top 6.
Harden and Durant were the only two players picked at the same spot in every league.
Jordan Clarkson had the biggest std.dev due to being drafted 38th in Division 1, but outside the top 100 in all three other leagues!
Olyniyk had the best ADP of players who went undrafted in at least one league: He didnt get drafted in Div 2, Con 1, but went as high as #103 in Div 2, Con 2.
The best ADP out of players picked up in just one league, was Javale McGee who was picked at #88 in Premier (by me, and I still cant believe it, I even wrote in the draft straight after my pick that I couldnt believe I'd taken him so high lol)!
The worst ADP from players picked in all four leagues was Thad Young whose ADP was 144.25.
