    With rumors, 99.9% true rumors, swirling about an online association present in this year's game I figured now would be a great time to see if their is any interest in a PS3 league. If the online feature is anywhere close to its offline counterpart this could be very special. Now before I wander off of TSO for my basketball season I will attempt to find any interested prospects on here. I've witnessed several attempts fizzle in the past but am willing to put 110% in making this league work on TSO. I'll even pass my commish title onto someone else in my football league.

    I don't dwell on titles, in fact, I don't even care if I receive one for this league. I just want to be surrounded by dedicated 2k fans that won't quit once they are out of playoff contention. Every league starts somewhere but it always succeeds with a solid foundation. It survives because its played by true fans. It takes fans like the NCAA leagues have for this to work.

    So, if you're a true fan of the sport as well of the game and play 2k all year round, would you be willing to help set a foundation (the standard) for TSO basketball on the PS3 console? If so, please post interest in this thread.

    All this is subject to the approval by the TSO management team before anything is entirely concrete. No interest, no league. I hope we can get there because I really don't want to play on XBox:p

    Yeah I'm all for it. Let's get a concrete plan together and see what interest we have.

    I might be interested...will depend a lot on my time available. already in the FIFA league and possibly getting an NHL league set up. If i have both of those I probably won't have time for NBA, but if the NHL one doesn't work out I could have time for this. I haven't played since 2k10, so odds are I'll suck, but hopefully it would come back eventually. Put me down as a maybe for now and I'll keep you updated

    Cool. I'm not sure if I'll commish this or not but I am currently on the recruiting trail for the league now. I'm actually visiting, honest truth, 6 or 7 leagues right now trying to pluck their good members.

    I'm seriously contemplating if I am done with NCAA. I am tired of the bullshit with this game.

    That being said, what's really good? I'm pretty sure this game is coming out in a couple of weeks?

    I ran a league or two the past few years but they never seemed to jump off. If you want to help me, I will run another league this year. I know I have a few guys that will come to play. We don't have to get a full NBA league now that there is CPU teams!

    What do you say Jerz? Join forces?

    Has it been confirmed somewhere that you don't have to have all user teams in online association? I've been waiting on some information about the online association mode but 2k has talked about everything but that mode.

    Don't quote me but from what I've been hearing, it isn't just the typical user "league" mode. It is a full association mode now. That is what I am hoping for. I know JerzeyReign probably can answer that better than I.

    Yes sir!! I will help you out in any way possible. BTW, I vote for CA to be David Stern.

    I was thinking about a 16 man league (8 per conference). If we can't get 16 good reliable guys we could possibly do a 12 man, 2 per division league to get things started. I only bring up the 2 per division theme for the purpose of having us spread out throughout the league while not bombarding anyone with user games every advance. Also, after further thought, if we get the right bunch, a 28 game season can be accomplished. Either way is fine with me though.

    And I think with the right group this league can (and will) survive. We will have to mirror it off of the NCAA leagues template (organized scheduling, game summaries, content) and we should be fine.

    Finally, don't believe any of the forum rumors yet. 2k community guys have a weird way of replying to questions and the 'question asker' forum posts are normally filled with more assumption than fact. The online insight should be out either today or early next week. The safe bet is to look for it early next week.

    Some names for the league (most are old video games or defunct leagues). I'm just bored at work, so ignore this until the time comes.:

    • Shut Up And Jam
    • Give 'N Go
    • Double Dribble
    • Slam City
    • In The Zone (or we could call it 'The Zone')
    • Sim Basketball Association (SBA)... SBA Showtime
    • National Basketball Alliance (NBA) ... NBA Showtime: NBA on TSO

    How many do you think you have thats willing to ball? I think 12 will be the best number for right now until we set a solid foundation. Up to you though.
