Haha they are exciting, aren't they? :disco:

Anywhooooo, deleted the old league, this one is now the official FO sidekick. Set your trading blocks and whatnot, and may the force be with you :judge:

Maannn!!  My other team was actually decent!  I now have the dreaded troika of Blake, Granger and Gasol!  Ugh! :doh:

I meant Blake Griffin, and no Steve Blake does not rock.  He's a little prick-watched him in college!

Congratulations to Steve, who ran away with this league and therefore received the :NBA6TH: trophy in his signature, apart from a healthy TMS boost for :SAC: to be added soon.

The second place was always going to be close. Prab had a bit of a head start since he played his games much earlier than everybody else. But with only 2 days left, I'm leading him by half a point (sic!), hoping that Melo won't play too much in his last game (I'm tied in three-pointers with Paris Headlights). Literally a dozen other changes could occur too, e.g. my FT% is .7497, clearly inferior to Nick's .7498 ;)

No changes before the last night: if Melo hits a three, I need either Valanciunas or Andersen to go 2/2 at the line :afro:

NBA Front Office 2.0 strikes back :judge:

WHAT
FO is not only a game, but also a community. This little side project started a year ago, and the idea behind it is: since we're battling through bi-annual exceptions, extend-and-trades and whatnot on a daily basis here, why don't we have a bit of relatively mindless fun as a side dish? It's an opportunity for the whole gang to meet and enjoy this very casual "typical fantasy" experience, oh-so-different from our daily FO grind! As an additional incentive, the top performers receive a very slight TMS bump, as their FO players respect their bosses' mad skillz :)

WHO
:OKC: David, :DET-NBA: Kris, :DAL-NBA: Stephen, :DEN-NBA: Nick, :CHI-NBA: Frank, :PHX: myself, and the reigning champion :SAC: Steve hopefully returning. 20 places in total. PM me if interested!

HOW
Auction (creative, inspires trash talk), 9-cat roto (i.e. really focused on the draft night, as we have enough on our plates with the "real deal" H2H NBAFO throughout the season), ESPN (personal/historical bias: Yahoo draft rooms suck). Whoever bids for my Gortat is automatically kicked out of FO ;)

WHEN
October-ish? I'll start a doodle soon to find the perfect draft day and a nice compromise between the time zones.
