How many of you really plan on trying to make it on one of the squads?

50,000 gamers vieing for approx. 80 slots.. that makes sense.

i hope the 49,920 others can view the games or be involved in the process a bit. it almost seems like a backroom "gentlemans hierarchy club" where the common folk will just move on with life and not even care. they really need to bring the fun and possibly allow players to get waived in favor of others. give people incentive

The one thing that troubles me with this is, what type of players are going to be chosen?

Will the only users chosen be the so called "cheesers" and anyone else who just does anything it takes to win?

If they are the ones that are always winning, and those are going to be the ones chosen, then that really doesn't give any of us "sim heads" a fair shot at this contest.

Fans can now sign-up online to receive registration information for the NBA 2K9 fantasy league draft through www.theotherseason.com, and while every player who registers and participates will be drafted, fans can make their own pitch for why they should be drafted to a specific team by describing their strengths and weaknesses, platform they play on, gamertag,
this has me scratching my head how many players will be on each team?
