Obviously I have no clue about what's going to happen to the Nba season, we are all wandering in the dark. But, hey, greetings from a fully quarantined Northern Italy, the center of the coronavir

Fellas, you guys seem to be not taking this corona virus serious enough even though a worldwide outbreak is starting. As someone in Hong Kong and seeing how the situation in Japan, Korea and italy sta

This is just brutal man. I get it’s just fantasy but all these hours that we’ve put into research, working the wire... frustrating 

 

Yep, it's a gut punch.  Rolling into fantasy PO's in 8 leagues with 3 byes and good prospects of more than doubling my total buy-in ($1,050).  

For the four leagues where I am commissioner, assuming the season is cancelled I will disburse payouts based on final standings.  I'm inclined to believe whoever is leading in the standings after 5 months has earned it.

The best basketball on right now is this college game. Big East tournament game involving some sh*t called the DePaul Blue Demons. At first glance I thought it was Duke.

 

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan listen lol. Time for some Netflix.

What about those of us already in the playoffs...

Good question! Some talk about Commissioners splitting the pot amongst all playoff teams and some are waiting for Yahoo Fantasy and what they will do with leagues (ie. Close, rank based on current position, record, etc.). So who knows because this is obviously unprecedented.

Just looking through all posts now, sorry not trying to nitpick your posts but this is again very bad reasoning, not to mention your mortality rate of the coronavirus is wrong. It's not 1%.

Yes, most of the deaths are from people who are elders or have underlying health problems, but we need to work together to reduce the spread to those people. It's not just about you, me, or someone else who will likely recover from it. Your older family members, friends, coworkers, etc who you interact with is at a much higher risk if you get it.

Exactly.  People are just trying to sound smart when the world leaders are trying to figure out how to contain this serious situation by saying it's not worse than the flu.  You think world leaders want their economy to tank?  They literally have done a ton of stuff to try to contain it even before you hear about it.  You can't make this stuff up.  Citizens thinking they are smarter than the ones who are actually doing all the work and planning to make things better.

I'm sure they have to quarantine Utah's players so atleast no games for 2 weeks?


probably no games for 2-3 weeks at the minimum and then the rest of the season will be played without fans.   Ronnie2k will be asked to simulate the crowd using ps4 graphics

you were right

Unfortunately.

I have been stashing resources for the last 4 weeks and felt amazingly stupid about it. But now I feel pretty, pretty, preeeeetty smart.

I did hope that I could watch NBA basketball and chill after the world goes to shutdown mode, but obviously looking it back now... It was never going to happen.

Take care of yourselves managers all around world. We will be back.

ESPN is so trash they probs haven't even realised yet

ESPN listing Rudy Gobert (infected with a deadly bioweapon) as DTD. Waiting for his three missed games. Maybe we'll get IR eligibility in October 2020.

I think fantasy basketball season is done. I play in yahoo and i dont see them wanting to update their server to add more weeks of games. I can obviously be wrong but i feel them saying whoever is in 1st place after tonights game is the champion.

the team plane used to fly utah jazz to the oklahoma city was later used to fly both orlando magic and memphis grizzlies in recent days...

Ok so test every player, get results back 1-2 days, quarantine who is affected, and let the rest continue? Simple.

I know we all feel bad, you know some of us played in really competitive leagues, put so much time and effort into this, and really became attached. But this really has the threat to not just screw over the fantasy season, but the NBA season. Imagine how those NBA players would feel, considering how much work and effort they put to possibly win the championship this year. Think of LeBron and the Lakers, thats 1 more year of his prime and this year really seemed like they would win it too did so many things right. Ouch honestly.

im saying the same thing but it obviously is not that simple, it can very well end up being that the whole jazz team has contracted the disease...who plays for the jazz in that case? they have to trace back all people that were in contact with one another...plus u have to think about at the end of the day when everyone goes home, what happens then? this could very well end up being an outbreak among the nba players and staff

Well Fantrax is very customable so we can easily finish the season if we want with whatever games might be played later. It will not be fair at all, but I already have some ideas about "corona compensation" and injured players like KAT and Simmons suspended rest of the way.

Saying that I do not know if there will be games to be played and even if there is would it be worth it to try finish the fantasy season out. I do hate quitting so knowing myself I probably will find a way to get back to it if NBA gets back to it...
