I'm mildly competitive in fantasy football but I definitely don't take it as seriously as I take fantasy baseball. How can I? They don't play most of the week. I played fantasy basketball as a joke for the first time this year. I know nothing about it or the NBA and I can name every NBA player I know on one hand. I wasn't even sure what an SF was. I played in a 10-team league with 9 other fairly knowledgeable and competitive guys. It was roto style.
Not only did I win the league, but I won by a landslide... trash talking the entire way. This just goes to show how reject fantasy basketball is; I drafted from a draft list I found after 5 minutes of Googling, and then just add/dropped players based on their Yahoo ranking throughout the season. End result was a dominant team. Throughout I didn't read any NBA news or watch a single second of an NBA game. I'd put money on the same practice next year.
What's up with the NBA not having a DL/IR? That pissed me off for a while, but otherwise I just checked my team's lineup regularly and made sure whoever could play that day was playing. That's it, fantasy basketball is a joke.
