Get Your GM Fix: Sponsored Post

NOTE: This is a Sponsored Post. I'm getting paid to pimp the site.

Several of you guys have been discussing a Fantasy league in the last few days. Here's an NBA MockGM for you that should give you your fix. They have created a PtR specific league, so you get to compete against some people you "know", not just random people around the internet. Take a look at your PtR PASPN League.

Here's the lowdown:

There will be 30 General Manager spots available: one for each NBA franchise. Since this is a new league, we will start by taking over each team’s existing contracts. After that, it’s up to you to re-tool your team via trades, draft picks, and free agent signings to form the best team that you can. Since PASPN leagues are governed by the rules of the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA), the Mock GM game mixes fantasy basketball playing with the realities of the business of the NBA.

If you read that, you know the first one to join gets the Spurs. Hurry over and get a good team. Then, this is how the play works:

Once the NBA regular season begins, we will compete in an 18-week Head-to-Head season, where each team has a new opponent every week. You start 8 players (PG, SG, SF, PF, C, UTIL, UTIL, UTIL), and whoever scores more fantasy points wins the matchup. The scoring system is based on’s Efficiency rating: ((PTS + TRB + AST + STL + BLK) - ((FGA - FGM) + (FTA - FTM) + TOV )). The top 16 teams qualify for the Playoffs, which take place during the final 4 weeks of the regular season.

If being a GM isn't enough for you, you can also work like an Agent:

As an NBA Agent, your goal is to make sure your clients needs are being answered whether they are a free agent and in need of a new contract or looking to get bought out of their existing contract. The GMs have to negotiate with them, to sign free-agents, or to get buyouts approved.

The agents are ranked based on the size of the contracts they're able to get for their contracts and the performance of the players during the regular season. Only points earned when a player is part of the GM's roster count towards the Agents rankings, so there is incentive for the Agents to place their clients in situations where they'll see playing time.
