Now in our first month of games in the 1993-94 season, the GGCBA (aka Classic80) has one vacant team after a coach moved overseas and was not able to continue in the league. We are a 20-team draft league and our season starts September 1 and runs through May 10 each year. We allow 8-keeper each heading into the rookie/free agent draft where we build back up to 15-player rosters. New coaches always draft their own roster through a pool of players from teams that do not return for the season. We use a games missed list which allows for different lineups throughout the season. We are an active league with many league discussions and trades each season. Our current Orphans roster has a playoff bound roster with the following players: Charles Barkley, Laphonso Ellis, Nate McMillian, Vincent Askew, Mark West, Sean Rooks, Rex Chapman, Doc Rivers, Shawn Bradley, Pete Myers, JR Reid, Terry Dehere, Carl Herrera, Ennis Whatley, and Jeff Turner. Would be great to find a coach that enjoys 1990’s Basketball!!!

Stratometrics is releasing its latest basketball rating guide for the 2014-15 season. The rating guide does all the math for you so you do not have to. It offers shot columns calculations for outside, penetration, inside and fastbreak columns and includes the total number of foul chances in each category. It offers halfcourt and passing column points-per-pass values to help compare one passer from another. Other important ratings are included in the rating guide to give you a quick guide to each player in the 2014-15 card set. To learn more about the rating guide, take a look at the following link:
The Total Card Values are now available for the 2014-15 season through Stratometrics. If you are looking for some subjective analysis to compare one card to another, than take a look at the Total Card Values. Each TCV file ranks each position from one on down by providing a TCV for each player. Z-scores are also provided to compare across positions since certain ratings are used differently from one position to another. Whether you are looking to better compete in your draft league or want to learn the values of different players in your solo projects, the TCV’s will give you a better understanding of Strat-O-Matic Basketball. For more information, take a look at the following link:
Strat-O-Matic will soon be launching a new league registry page on their website. I would encourage you to register your basketball league to help get their word out there that there are Start basketball leagues out there and they are a lot of fun!
