I want to do 4 divisions also.
Hey, I made the stat categories as follows
Field Goals Made - 2 pts
Free Throws Made - 1pt
3pt Shots Made - 2.5pts
Points Scored - 2pts
Off Rebs - 2pts
Def Rebs - 2pts
Assists - 2.5 pts
Steals - 2.5pts
Blocks - 2.5pts
Turnovers - -1pts
Fouls - -1pts
Games play - .5pts
Games Started - .5pts
I didn't include total rebounds, 3pt shots attempted, free throws attempted, field goals attempted.
I did the scoring system like this because it's as balanced as I tried to make it. Favors defensive players, assist guys, help defenders, centers who block shots, 3pt specialist, and offensive guys.
Carmelo goes for 25 points = 50pts
8 - 21 FG = 16pts
1-5 3pt shots - 2.5 pts
7 turnovers - -7 pts
11 rebounds - 22 pts
1 stl - 2.5pts
1 blk - 2.5 pts
Game played - .5pts
Game started - .5pts
Total stateline of 57.5 (I think, off the head math)
I'm down with 4 divisions, for sure.
I'd also probably bump offensive boards to 2.5 or even 3, as they're so much harder to come by than defensive boards - FT rebounds etc.
I was going to organize the divisions just wanted to get Metro's say so and what names you guys want to give to them
something like that
Seems like Rady and OrangeBlogman want in.
Theres already 16 teams.
I wonder how a 20 many man league would work. The talent pool would be water downed though.
How many teams we had last year?
I meant I could do an 18 team league.
I wouldn't go higher than that. If the demand gets real high (especially next year), I would actually create two levels of play:
one league for more hardcore people, those who are veterans, those who have made the playoffs in a league
the other league would be for people who have yet to prove what leve of ball they are at.
And making the divisons the boroughs is awesome idea.
With 12 teams making it, we'd have 6 playoff teams from each conference. Which could work out funky....we need 8 or 4 at some pt to move forward cleanly....
Which is why I would do the two 1st round buys. These top seeds, would then play the lowest seeded team of the 6 in their conference, who advanced to Round 2.
Where we'd have 4 teams in each conference.
This makes sense in terms of letting a nice number of teams taste playoff action, increases the action in the playoffs, puts in some cool plot lines that will develop between the top alphas and the underdog or two who will sneak in, an it also doesn't make it a charity thing, as the true #1 seeds get a very reward for their excellence.
