I'll post this here in this section for a while because it will get many more eyeballs than it would over in the fantasy section.
This season I will be starting a seriously kick-ass fantasy basketball league. What makes this one different? It will be populated by the most diehard Bobcats fans from around the web.
We are filling it with people that won't abandon teams 10 games in.
In this league trash talking is mandatory. When your team beats the west hell out of somebody else's sorry squad it is your duty to let them know about it. When someone trades Russell Westbrook for Cory Higgins it is your responsibility to laugh at that dumbassed move.
If you think that this sounds like the league for you, then tell us why you will be able to kick everyone else's butt in the league and let us know what your team name would be.
Note: I'm a sucker for a hilarious team name
As the entries for this league come in, I'll choose the ones that are truly extraordinary.
So far in this league we have the following people commited.
Ziggy - BCP - Team Name ( Diop 3:16 )
Swedd523 - BCP - Team Name TBD
Brad - BCP, SportsCLT.com - Team Name TBD
Fat Lever - RGM - Team Name ( 0-for-Burleson )
Sachmo - RGM - Team ( Miley Tyrus )
Black - BCP = Team Name ( Kemba Waffle Fries )
Adam187 - BCP - Team Name ( 50 shades of Rudy Gay )
Felton 4 Pres - BCP - Team Name ( Passion of the Gilchrist )
Colin & T-Bone - WFNZ - ( To Infinity and Biyombo! )
Andrew - TradeStreetPost.com - Team Name ( Less is Morrison )
DCarnys - BCP- Team Name TBD
ND22 - BCP - Team Name TBD
I'm planning on filling out a 12 team league, and I'm holding a few spots for a few RGM folks and another person or 2 so if you're interested make your case in this thread!

I'm in, I'll come up with some clever reasons why I deserve a spot at a later date.

In Cho I Trust
I think fats said Sachmo was in and that he was going to contact Lamar. I assume a couple of other guys are willing as well, but I'm not sure if he's contacting people directly or if he'll post a thread.
My team name has been Pippen Ain't Easy for every year I've played, but I may switch it up for something as potentially epic as this.
I'd like to nominate myself. I played in the BCP League last year and dominated it in rebounds and technical fouls. I run a fantasy football league for my friends, so I know about the dedication a good league and team require. I love talking trash on the ESPN smack board even though no one ever checks it and I always vote my team to win. Truthfully, I'm a mediocre fantasy player because I play with my heart and not my head, but I swear that's all gonna change soon. I write down rules before the draft (no white dudes) and immediately end up breaking them (Kevin Love with my first pick). I talk about my team like it's the real thing, wondering if I need to rest my starters, if our home court advantage will be enough to pull us through, and whose Ipod we're gonna be listening to in the weight room (last year it was usually Rondo's). Anyways, this league sounds awesome and I can definitely go all in for it, so it'd be great to be a part of it.
Also, I work in a library, so I typically aim for a literary theme with my team name: Kobe Dick, Slaughterhouse 5, or 50 Shades of Rudy Gay.
PS - technical fouls should be a positive category, not a negative one.
I'm in, because even after my team is garbage, I will still talk trash.

If given the opportunity, I'd love to play. Diehard Bobcat fandom can't be questioned...I still own my Mek, Felton and Crash jersey (yes, it says Crash on the back). In no way is that depressing nor does it concern me about my own spending habits after a few beers.
As a Bobcat fan, I know a lot about not abandoning a team after 10 games or 20 games or the first pre-season game. I'm in it to the end, even if it means I have to watch Corey Higgins get PT or the Hornets get the first draft pick.
Personal humor level boarders more on sarcasm (a la South Park) than in your face trash talking, which could be used as a welcome change of pace.
I haven't played fantasy hoops in a few yrs mainly due to the lack of a solid league. I've been in the same fantasy football league for 15yrs so my allegiance to a solid league is demonstrated.
Let's go 'cats!
