    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    Great question. Actually there is....sorta. I was thinking about randomizing the selections (randomize button) and then letting the trade posturing for draft picks/selection begin. Only one problem. I'm unable to identify if the trade draft pick option is a function available only to the Commissionsers or if the GMs can do it on the fly, during the draft or both. This is where that inexperience in how this league works plays a factor. :rolleyes: This would be a nightmare if it is up to the Commish to manage all of those activites during a draft. So, if you or another GM could do me a favor and poke around the site to see if any trade draft pick options are available to the GMs it will help alot. Otherwise, we will just continue the current course to avoid confusion.

    Man, trading picks would be cool!
    It would only be a nightmare for the GM. I'm fine with it! :laugh:

    I did some searching but didn't see anything about trading picks.

    But I did notice a couple of other cool features! I like the "trading block" feature especially.

    Looking forward to tip off!

    Okay, just got a response from NBA.com support.

    It looks like trading draft picks can only be done pre-draft, do not require league approval and can only be handled by the commish. I think we'll pass this time around fellas. The overhead of managing 14 picks for 12 different teams seems a bit ambitous this year.

    One thing I must comment on is that the NBA.com fantasy b-ball customer support is excellent. They normally give me answers within the half hour and they have done a great job at answering questions to my satisfaction. (Which is not very easy. :) )

    Looks like someone isn't being a team player.

    good question.

    The Yahoo version of the draft has a chatroom, however I don't know how the draft is going to be for the NBA.com version. I'll research this and get an answer back to the group.

    Awesome.

    Its nice to have during the draft. It makes you feel like everyones actually there, rather than just watching them make pics. So we'll be able to roast whoever ends up taking Darko in the first round in real time!

    Re: Trial League News - '06-07

    Whewwww!

    Well, I finally completed the schedule. It ended up being alot more time consuming than I anticipated. Finally, I got smart and downloaded a free scheduler that helped me out a bit. It still required a lot of work considering I was trying to factor in interleague play.

    Anyway here is the breakdown.

    Each team will play against a team in their division three times. There will be seven weeks of inter-divisional play. This means that everyone will get the opportunity to play someone from an opposing division at least once. The last inter-divisional game will pair you up against someone listed in your top 3 preferred list (if you emailed me). Home court advantage will alternate from Bad Boys to Going to Work every inter-divisional week with the exception of the last week of Mar19 - Mar25. At this time, the home court advantage will be awarded to the team that was the visitor for the previous matchup between the two rival teams.

    Hope I didn't confuse the hell outta ya.

    To see the complete schedule, please login to the NBA.com fantasy page.

    Here are the inter-divisional matchups (Home teams in bold) :

    Week 3
    Webz vs Winless
    Jammer vs Slippy
    Dre vs Griff
    Motown vs Roscoe
    Darth vs Linwood
    Dlev vs Himat

    Week 6
    Linvwood vs Webz
    Slippy vs Motown
    Winless vs Jammer
    Griff vs Darth
    Roscoe vs Dlev
    Himat vs Dre

    Week 9
    Webz vs Roscoe
    Jammer vs Himat
    Dre vs Winless
    Motown vs Linwood
    Darth vs Slippy
    Dlev vs Griff

    Week 12
    Slippy vs Webz
    Griff vs Jammer
    Linwood vs Dre
    Himat vs Motown
    Roscoe vs Darth
    Winless vs Dlev

    Week 15
    Motown vs Winless
    Darth vs Himat
    Dre vs Slippy
    Jammer vs Roscoe
    Webz vs Griff
    Dlev vs Linwood

    Week 18
    Griffin vs Motown
    Himat vs Webz
    Slippy vs Dlev
    Roscoe vs Dre
    Linwood vs Jammer
    Winless vs Darth

    Week 21
    Webz vs Slippy
    Linwood vs Darth
    Winless vs Dre
    Roscoe vs Motown
    Himat vs Jammer
    Griff vs Dlev


    With the schedule determined, I will go ahead and press the randomize button to determine the draft selection order in advance. Look for an update before midnight. Should make for some interesting discussion. Time to get prepared for the draft fellas. I'm ready. Are you? :)

    You feelin' sorry for the Going to Work league Mo? Looks like they get a big edge in the home court advantage department.

    That's ok. Ties are for girls anyway. Real men win outright. :gun1:

    Good catch.

    The actual schedule on the site is correct, the one I posted here did not take into account the home court advantage. Should be all better now.

    Linwood is first. Bad news for Cleveland fans. LeBron will be on crutches the entire year.:crutch:

    I'd have to imagine its snaking, but I'd really prefer it if it was straight up!
