Join FlowingData fantasy basketball pool

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

The basketball season is going to start soon (finally). To make the season more interesting, I’m starting a FlowingData fantasy basketball pool, and you’re invited. It’s a combination of data and basketball. Pure awesomeness.

It’s a $20 chip-in, and winner takes all. Want to join in on the fun? Just email me with “I’m in” in the subject header, and I’ll send over the info. We need at least 10 teams, and the maximum is 20, so the earlier you reply, the better. Let the games begin!
