    I have no idea about roster setting strategies.

    Since we are set up to set rosters daily, is it wise to start all the guys that play on that day?

    Or if it's going to be set by the week, do you pick the guys who play the most games that week, or is each player's stats averaged over all the games he played?

    Obviously the emphasis on total points and not efficiency makes this a whole new ballgame. It makes a lot less sense to have players who don't play major minutes on your roster. At the old site, a guy giving you 15 good minutes every night was very valuable.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I've played only in Yahoo leagues for roto bball so far, but it sounds like NBA.com runs similar to that. With Yahoo, there was no strategy for setting lineups. You just put everyone who is playing that day into your "starting lineup" to get more pts, boards, asts, etc. Sometimes, you'll have more players with games that day than you have available spots, so you do have to decide which players to bench. But with a 24 team league, it'll probably be pretty obvious who should be in the game considering we're gonna have guys like Ryan Bowen, Brian Scalabrine and Michael Olowokandi on our squads.

    Sounds like this league has the same setup.

    I wanted to follow up on this to make sure I understand the scoring.

    The league rules page says this is the scoring:
    Scoring Configuration
    Assists/Game Pts: 2
    Blocked Shots/Game Pts: 2.5
    Defensive Rebounds/Game Pts: 1.5
    Offensive Rebounds/Game Pts: 2
    Personal Fouls Pts: -0.5
    Points Scored/Game Pts: 1
    Steals/Game Pts: 2
    Technical Fouls Pts: -1
    Turnovers/Game Pts: -1.5


    Most of the categories are "/game", which I assume means the scoring will be based on the weekly per game averages and not the total number of points earned during the week? So the number of games a player has in the week doesn't matter? (and if fouls and techs aren't per game would a player with more games in a week be penalized due to the probable higher number of total fouls?)

    That's not the Keeper League scoring. You made me nervous for a minute.

    I assumed the keeper league and ABA had the same/similar scoring.

    Anyway, does what I wrote make sense for the ABA?

    What is the difference between the "per game" numbers & the others.

    I thought I had set it up to mirror the KL but I guess not.

    I know the values are the same but you're not using the "per game"stats?

    EDIT:

    I just changed them over. They're no longer listed as "per game". The numbers are the same as they were but the scores will be added differently I guess.

    LOL - I was gonna answer that I have no flippin' idea - don't know which would be better or anything.

    My knowledge of this site is one step above a Neanderthal's knowledge of Nuclear Physics.

    Or is that nuculer?

    Am I missing something? I don't see evidence of live scoring?

    Just go to the "League" main page. Then there's a link for "Live Scoring" all the way to the right under where it says "League" in red. Click that.

    I can watch in real time as Gary Payton subtracts points as quickly as he adds them.

    Yay!!!





    Love this feature by the way.

    OOOH - Click the box at the bottom that says "Show Only My League's Scoring Categories".

    WAY better!

    Wow, Yahoo has nothing on this when it comes to "Live Scoring".
    This is great.

    Why Not Us ?
