You know me, I love playing fantasy sports. ESPN usually has an NBA Playoff fantasy game but they haven't announced anything yet. I'll keep my eyes open over the coming days. If there gonna do something, they should announce something in a day or 2.

But yeah, that would be cool i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

Now that I'm back, I'll play the fantasy playoff game.

As for an idea, do you remember the post I had a while back on my suggestions?

It appears, at the moment, that ESPN won't be having a NBA playoff challenge. It looks as though they are just going to continue Virtual GM through the playoffs instead of making a new fantasy game. I'll still keep my eyes open though.

I kinda remember what giostar had said a while back, and if he's willing to do that, that would be a good option I supose.

What was giostar's suggestion?

LonestarROB

I guess we'll either have to make one up our self or not have one. I can't seem to find any playoff fantasy games out there.

I'll try and get the details up today. Its really easy to do and keep up with. The basics, choose 3 guards, 3 forwards, and 2 centers. You get points on them as long as their team is still alive in the playoffs. But you can NOT choose two players on the same team... no finley and Nowitzki. Also you can play a person on any position this person usually plays. example... Nowitzki can be used at Forward or Center. Finley can be used at Forward or Guard, but not at the center obviously. I'll post more later. But if interested, start getting an idea of who you want to use now. Playoffs are only days away!!!

Ok, so here it goes...

You get points based on a players performance.

2 pt per FG
1 pt per FT
1 pt per Rebound
1 pt per Blocked Shot
1 pt per assist
3 pts for 3 pt FG
1 pt per steal

You need to pick 8 players. 3 Guards, 3 Forwards, 2 Centers.

These players can be on any team. But you can not pick 2 players on the same team. No Kobe and Shaq, no Fin and Nowitzki. There are 16 teams in the playoffs, thats 1 player per 2 teams!

Once your player's team has been eliminated from the playoffs, you do NOT get to pick another player... you just won't get any more points for them. If you pick malone as your Forward, then you won't get any points for him once the jazz get the hell beat out of them by the Mavs!

Like I said in the other post. You can not have a person on your Playoff Fantasy Team at a position they don't normally play. You can not play Steve Nash as your center, nor your forward. If you choose Finley (for example), he plays both the SG and SF position, so you can have him as one of your players at either position.

Its that easy. What else do you need to know? Obviously you want to pick players on teams that you think will play more game (whether it be going further in the playoffs, or taking more games to win a series).

Sounds good to me i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif . Who all's gonna play?

One question. Are you going to add up the points or do we do it our self?

Hales233
04-18-2001, 12:25 AM
I'm in, just still a little confused i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif

Yeah, Time to get the wheels in motion...

giostar

I suppose that I could keep up with the points. I wont be that hard.

So if you are interested, send your private messages to me here. You have until 10 minutes before the 1st playoff game to do so. I will copy you all on the teams once we have them all set.

giostar

Hales,

What is your question? I'm sure that if you have a question, someone else will too.

LonestarROB
04-18-2001, 03:55 PM
You want us to PM you our team? i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Hales233
04-18-2001, 04:02 PM
I was just wondering about guys like Scot Pollard and Dale Davis, would they be considered Forwards or Centers, because they play both the 4 and the 5.

giostar
04-19-2001, 11:44 AM
Yes, please PM me your teams.

Scot Pollard and Dale Davis can be used as one of your forwards or one of your Centers as they play either position.

LonestarROB
04-19-2001, 01:35 PM
Duncan can be used as a Forward right?

LonestarROB
04-20-2001, 04:29 PM

I'll get the updated points after tonights game together and send something out tomorrow.

scooterj5
04-24-2001, 06:53 PM
Seeing the heat series perhaps I should have kicked Zo out of my team i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

giostar
04-25-2001, 01:01 PM
Sorry I havent get those up to date stats out yet. Ill do what I can soon guys.

LonestarROB
04-25-2001, 02:43 PM
I say just wait until the first round is over. Update them round by round. We don't need them updated everyday or every other day. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

LonestarROB
05-05-2001, 11:42 AM
Ok, I did the totals for my team and Giostar's team for the first round.

Giostar had 1297 points

Marion - 112
Sprewell - 136
Iverson - 190

You can feel free to add mine up cos I sure ain't going through ALL those boxscores!!

LonestarROB
05-08-2001, 02:24 PM
You only got 2(Camby and McGrady) to do. I already did the others on your team. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

giostar
05-08-2001, 07:35 PM
Sorry, Ive been forgetting to post this...

The only other 4 players left are

Hardaway - 17
Finley - 172
McGrady - 204
R. Wallace - 82

giostar
05-08-2001, 07:36 PM
By the way, thanks Rob WR - thanks for doing the dirty work.

giostar
05-09-2001, 05:52 PM
Ok hardaway and wallace were a waste of time:

Kidd - 142
Camby - 75

So I guess here are the totals throuhg the 1st round:

Giostar - 1297
Rob WR - 1117
Scooterj5 - 1175
Hales233 - 1152

giostar
05-09-2001, 06:01 PM
One more thing...

I have done some looking at this and see that everyone has Shaq, Webber, Iverson, and Allen on their team. So I am not going to be doing the point totals for them, since we cancel each other out on them. So these are the only players we have left in the second round:

RobWR - Duncan
Giostar - Duncan, Nowitzki, Carter
Scooterj - Nowitzki
Hales233 - Finley, Duncan

The point totals will that I update later will only include these players in the total points. Everyone else has either been eliminated or is one of the 4 players mentioned above.

Did I miss someone?

scooterj5
05-10-2001, 01:45 AM
Oh no I forgot Duncan, well I'm screwed.

LonestarROB
