    My TSO friends,

    It appears that NBA2K12 is going to explode in terms of popularity this year. Already TSO has a Premier League being organized by RynoAid. From our discussions, it appears it will be capped at 16-20 users. and we already have generated more interest than that league can hold. Hence this post.:) What I am looking for is a solid group of 16 who wants to start another league with me. I would prefer to have a couple of "right hand" men who have the ability to help me with some of the finer details, but if that doesn't materialize then I can handle the organizational aspects of the league.

    Having spent a lot of time playing games here at TSO (between Madden/NCAA/FIFA/Racing, etc), I know what I want from the people in my league. I (and my "deputies" so to speak) will draw from our knoweledge of the membership base to choose the guys we feel will be good fits. If that means we only end up with 8 people, then so be it.

    League Member wants:
    1. People with flexible schedules. This is a want because I don't mind taking a guy with a great attitude who won't cry about getting simmed on occassion. That said, if you have a 1 hour window to play in every night, don't waste my time.
    2. People who are in love with a NBA team. I prefer to have genuine fans running teams.

    League Member musts:
    1. Passionate people who want to have fun.
    2. People who don't mind losing.
    3. People who don't feel the need to tweak every little thing. (Sliders especially)
    4. People who don't like to argue for the sake of arguing.
    5. People who know sim, but can give good members the benifit of the doubt if something un-sim occurs.
    6. People who will trust the league leadership to do what is in the best interest of the league, even if it isn't in line with their personal opinion.

    I'm not going to be in this to play until December, the aspect of most sports games that is interesting to me is the building of teams. It is inevitable that with interest comes new gamers, people with seasonal game excitement syndrome, etc. That's why I am going to be picky with selection of members.

    I'm not sure about any league specifics (season length, game settings), etc. We will figure that out together. This will be a non-Premier League

    Anyone interested?

    I would if I played basketball games. Thanks for thinking of me though. Even if I was interested, with Crop and AGS I'm strapped for time as it is.

    I would definitely be interested in this. I was waiting to see what 2K was going to be before making the decision to buy it or FIFA. think 2k wins out with this.

    With the Deuce and the TMFL, plus BF3 dropping - I'm afraid I just wouldn't have the time.

    I would love to go on a waiting list. At this time I'm trying to play on the PS3 console. Probably will get the Xbox copy in November or so, when the price drops.

    and please forgive my ignorance but I'm new is Premier the paid members who are expected to be more reliabl and or organized while non-Premiere leagues can be hit or miss?...Just trying to get the lay of the land.

    I signed up for Premier on the strength of supporting sports gaming communities whether I play in a league or not but I'm down to play in any well run league...Premier or non-Premier.

    Thanks
