Fantasy basketball is in the DNA of Golden State of Mind as illustrated by my co-founder's pen name "Fantasy Junkie." Back in 2006 we had a Golden State of Mind fantasy league that FJ used to manage. It was a ton of fun and lots of community members were engaged, but it was hard to connect it to our non-stop Golden State Warriors hyper-focused coverage.
Start Four, a new fantasy sports game centered around a single team and game, allows us to have a Golden State of Mind fantasy league focused just on the Golden State Warriors and their games. It was founded right here in the Bay Area by my buddy Bill Onderdonk, a big time sports fan. I'm eager to use Start Four this season for our GSOM fantasy league because we can gamify and quantify the community's hoops IQ about the Warriors and their opponents.
We'll keep you posted about prizes, but make sure to sign up for a Start Four account and join the Golden State of Mind group so you can get your picks in for tomorrow's opening night festivity against the LA Lakers.
Also don't forget to use your GSOM screen name as your Start Four screen name. The cross-polination will undoubtedly lead to some "Unstoppable Baby" levels of community banter in our game previews, open threads, and recaps.
If you don't have a GSOM account, now's the time to create one and also join our group on Start Four!
"I Got 4 On It!"
