2008 Cafe Reshuffle

By Nick Adams

Over the past four months, thirty Cafe members participated in the inaugural Fantasy Basketball Cafe Reshuffle. Drawing inspiration from its predecessor at the Football Cafe, the Reshuffle sought to generate discussion about real life player value that is often conspicuously absent here at the fantasy-minded Cafe. The premise was simple: all players affiliated with an NBA team (on the roster, playing for their D-League affiliate, injured, etc.) as well as any current NBDL’ers, were thrown into a pool, and Cafe members, each representing an NBA franchise, held a snake draft to redistribute their rights. Managers drafted in an attempt to compile the team that would be most competitive in real life. Here are the results:
