Are you a fellow fantasy basketball geek? If so, I’d like to invite you to join the official Hoops Addict Fantasy Basketball League.

The fine folks at DUNKEST.com will be hosting the league this year. I’m hoping to give away some prizes at the end of the season to the top teams in the league. I currently have some books from Bobby Knight to give away and I’m still looking for some sponsors to help out with donating prizes.

The strength of DUNKEST.com is to offer a free and totally innovative Fantasy Basketball game. Through a graphical interface that allows direct interaction with the court, users can create their Fantasy Teams choosing their favorite NBA players.

The management of the team throughout the season is simple and fun: trades and substitutions are possible during each day of the Regular Season and Playoffs in order to select the best starting five for future matches.

DUNKEST.com is very attentive to the scoring logic in order to reward the more strategic users and not the luckiest ones. Users can also create private leagues to challenge their friends (like the Hoops Addict league).

Moreover, from this year DUNKEST has introduced several sections to engage even more its users: a Forum to discuss the performances of the game, a Lineups section to check the probable rosters of the games, and a Statistics section that will be useful to pick the best players available.

Here’s the link to join the league. Of, if you need to search for the legue fter you create your team, the league ID is 0141199740986929.

LeBron James Says Another Title Likely Would Have Kept Him With Miami Heat

MIAMI — In an interview to air Friday on CNN, LeBron James acknowledged that with three more victories in June he likely would have remained with the Miami Heat instead of signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers in July as a free agent.

In the interview with Rachel Nichols for the network’s Unguarded program that airs Fridays at 10:30 p.m. EDT, James said a third consecutive Heat championship likely would have preempted his eventual return to Cleveland. The Heat instead lost 4-1 in the NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs.

“It’s a greater chance, for sure,” he said. “I mean, it would be hard to leave back-to-back-to-back championships and try to go for four. But, obviously, you really can’t live and think of what may have happened. For me, I’ve always been a person [to] kind of live in the moment.”

He said seeking his third championship after switching teams will present new challenges.

“I understand what it takes to get there,” he said of his four-year Heat tenure, which included four trips to the NBA Finals and championships in 2012 and ’13. “I understand what it takes to win. It’s so difficult. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
