This will be our 14th straight season running fantasy NBA leagues through TS!
We've mostly had 4 leagues, but have dropped back to 3 leagues the last few years. We have promotion and relegation between the leagues each year. Last season was the first where we introduced a promotion to premier league direct from all of the other leagues - prior to then you could only be promoted to premier league from Div1. Congrats to @The Royals for being the first one promoted to Premier in this way after he took out the Div 2 championship earlier this year!
We also held a knockout comp last season for the first time, including teams from all leagues! I feel this was a success and we plan to run it again this season, and not just because I won it lol (humble brag )
Here is a list of all the Premier League champions over the years:
19/20: @Steve *unfinished season
For those who are new, we use the ESPN platform.
12-team points leagues.
We intend to run with the same points system and settings as last season. [edit - as mentioned in the comments, the points system is likely to change]
Timetable for the next couple of months (subject to change):
Saturday 16th September: Expressions of interest open;
Saturday 23rd Sept (today): New post with info and draft makeup of leagues;
Tuesday 3rd October: Deadline for returning coaches to hold spot in their division;
Wednesday 4th Oct: Draft orders announced!
Friday 6th Oct: NBA preseason games commence;
Friday 13th Oct: Aim for leagues to be finalised, with all invitations sent;
Saturday 21st Oct: NBA Preseason games finish;
Sunday 22nd Oct: Fantasy Draft night;
Wednesday 25th Oct: NBA opening night.
We have already had 24 coaches recommit for the new season, so we will have at least two leagues.
We have had a couple of coaches drop out this season who have been playing these leagues for many years, @dabombers was our inaugural champion when we only had one league in the first season and @smokinjoemisiti joined the season after; both have played every season since but sadly need to step away this season and they will surely be missed around here. SmokinJoe was going to be in premier league this season, so with him dropping out, a couple of coaches have shuffled up a division higher than they were going to be.
Here is the makeup of the leagues for 23/24 as they stand (tagging those who still havent yet committed for the new season):
HEAVER, crossy, anthak, stowie, tasho, bgt2110, Rev, @KAT4MVP , @Steve , @Sparks , The Royals, Rad_E_Cool.
nicksnow, tyze1, costak, Lethal, Mick Webb, Belmont383, Bearfly, James84, karlos, @Esther , unaio, @Chris Whitey.
Jmulldihno, Don_Cottagers, @Eggrobber , churchboy, @Lano24 , Jasmine, @WingMan , @insider , Jacob Doole, @headmandude , 11, 12.
