A new Internet sports simulation game released Monday, TOTAL HOOPS BASKETBALL, does not include most current players a break from traditional fantasy sports games.
TOTAL HOOPS owners will be able to draft and manage a team through an 82-game, seven-week season against other team owners.
More than 1,000 players from the NBA, the American Basketball Association (1967-1976) and the Basketball Association of America (1946-1949) are available, including legends like Michael Jordon, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Current players are only included if theyve had a lengthy career.
We have created a game that picks up where traditional fantasy sports games fall short, said Dayne Myers, CEO of Imagine Sports. We want our customers to enjoy the most complete and realistic fantasy experience possible and so we give them total control over all aspects of a team.
TOTAL HOOPS was created by Imagine Sports, Inc., the company behind the popular DIAMOND MIND ONLINE baseball game.
For a limited time, new customers can sign up for a team and play a complete season of league play for no charge.
