I play in a 12 team league but I want to get involved in a 20+. I think I would enjoy it.
base in my experience 20 man league with 9 players per team would be enjoyable...so there will be still some fa gems

The 7th, or 8th guys of a NBA team always comes out of no where and that is what makes the FA very exciting, not oversupply yet not dry.
And because not everyone gets to grab the sleepers in FA, this size would be just enough to drive up trades between team owners.
on this basis, 20*9, 18*10, 16*11, 14*12 etc league setting could be very fun for me.
I don't know if this is a shallow or deep league though.
I also play another pretty fun setting: H2H 20 teams, 5 players per team, 3 spot per day: Utl, Utl, Utl. Auction draft. Cats: P,A,R,S,B
You get build up you own unbeatable 3 on 3 team, have the freedom to go all big or all small, and can spam the FAs with a lot of good players in the pool.It's pretty much like playing pokers to me.

Deep. My longtime league is 16 x 14 and the wire is more barren than the surface of the moon.
My long time one is 14x15. Majority of wire suggestions that articles talk about or are posted here were drafted. Seems like only players that breakout through a starters injury are the ones available.

I'm in a 20 teams (15 players) league, so 300 players were drafted. It was so much fun when I digged out Jeremy Lin and Pek last year. and this year I got shved. When you are in a 12 team league, you can always find someone useful off waiver wire.
Agreed. I play in a 18 teams (15 players) and it is so much better because of the bigger challenge. Oh yeah, and it's a keeper league, which makes it even more interesting.
I used to play 4 or 5 leagues per season, now i only play one longterm league. It feels so much more realistic. Before when i was in more leagues it was allways weird, when one player had a great game, and i was happy because he was on one of my teams, but at the same time i played against him in one of the matchups. Strange feeling.
I don't have such a strong team yet, but i do have a lot of young prospects, including Irving and Davis.
