Guys, if you’ve been emailed an invite by one of the managers, please accept it so that we can get underway.
We now have 16 in each league. We’ve scheduled both drafts for Saturday morning at 11AM CST. If you can’t make it, we will have to use auto-draft as we simply have no other choice at this point.
I realize how late in the game this is right now to be starting this thing up and I sincerely apologize. I should have done a better job organizing this from the start. Thanks to our managers, Keith, Craig, and Adam, we’ve managed to recover and look ready to get underway. Despite the inconvenience of the late start, I hope all of you who have claimed a bit will stick around and participate this year. I’m excited to see how this goes and whether it can be a regular part of Red94.
Again, please claim your invites if you have not yet done so and check the forums for all updates. We hope to finally get rolling this Saturday morning.
In today’s episode, I talk more about Kyle Lowry, in anticipation to tonight’s matchup against the league’s best point guard.
Wednesday, 9:30PM CST @ Los Angeles

Some of the Lakers’ greatest weaknesses remain some of Houston’s best attributes: dominant point guard, depth, perimeter shooting; that might give any viewer pause that wants to credit the Rockets too much for their ability to hang with the former champs, but that’s not what those unadorned in Rocket red got out of this. They just got to watch one helluva game. [read more…]
