WELCOME TO THE HISTORY OF BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION (HOBA)
$300 PER SEASON
2 DIVISIONS/ 7 TEAMS PER DIVISION
The HOBA is a dynasty style head to head categories formatted league. I currently run a 10 year running dynasty baseball league, and very much enjoy the continuity of a dynasty style format. A little about me: I have run leagues for over 20 years and started playing fantasy basketball in the old AOL fantasy grandstand days of the late 90’s. I am a serious player and always a contender. This league will incorporate trading of future picks as well. There will be teams that are rebuilding with youth. There will be championship, win now dynasties. The continuity of this style is what draws my interest in fantasy sports. I’m looking for a likeminded group. I already have about 1/2 the league filled, but we are looking for some new talent and styles to join this group.
