    I sense the presence of some dark conspiracy behind your "championship." :D

    Congrats. I think there were too many teams in the league.

    If you want out, let me know, because we have a waiting list.

    Did I say I wanted out? When you started the league you did not have as many teams but kept adding before the draft. The biggest problem with 30+ teams is if you had one starting player hurt, you were in bad shape. If you had two guys out, you were almost assured of losing.

    I'm assuming the draft order next year will be based on how the teams finished after the playoffs.

    I lost my starting center, and my two forwards for most of the season, yet somehow I managed to get second.

    I think waiver wire pick ups, and getting a little luck were important. And Gilbert Arenas. :D

    Overall, it was interesting to have so many teams.

    Gilbert was a fantasy basketball dream to have.

    I think the number of teams made it more interesting. I can't wait to find out how many players we get to keep and to see how the next draft works out.

    30+ teams for fantasy BasketBall?

    Sorry but that is beyond rediculous. There are only 30 teams in the NBA. Only 5 starters per team. That means teams in your league are relying on back-ups as primary players in their rotation. That is incredibly insane.

    Heck in fantasy football you have to many teams with 12-15 and they have 32 teams. Im glad I didnt get in that.

    I hope I get a high pick in next year's draft. My team is young but was wrecked by injuries to Rashard Lewis and Jason Richardson. If I can keep those two along with Al Jefferson, as well as get a nice high pick...my team will be a force.

    I like my chances for the future. With a high pic, Yao Ming, Foye, Rondo and whoever else. That sounds pretty good.

    Next year's draft should be based on where you finished after the playoffs.

    2nd to last pick brought me my belt, this league is so stretched picking 30 and 31 would be sweet

    I don't know how it works, but I'd think at this point the draft wouldn't snake again, it would just go in order each round.

    Is that right or no? Would it be unfair?

    Oh, and congrats on winning the league!

    I have to check and see what the deal is with keepers--there's bound to be some different rules--or at least, a way we can make our own rules without site limitations.

    There will be no ADDED teams. Period. We have enough already--the only way the people on the waiting list can get in is if a current owner abandons their team. Which is bound to happen.

    30 teams makes it a much more strategic game. Yes, you have to play less-than-super players, but that's like the NBA itself. And some of these lesser players are actually good fantasy earners. It's hard, but that's what makes it interesting.
