This is by far the best fantasy basketball site I've ever been to. It took me weeks to find a good one. When I found pennantchase, I was hooked immediately. I would definitely recommend this site to any basketball lover.
I know it must take a whole lot of time to put this together and keep it updated. Really is awesome and the fact that it is free is beyond comprehension. Thanks for making one soul happy for a few minutes each day!
I first joined PennantChase during the delayed 2020 season, as I figured it would be a good holdover for fantasy sports. It has far exceeded any expectations I had. It has been great fun to take part in custom leagues, and I even joined one with three of my friends that I recommended Pennant Chase to. Great job making this site so accessible and the leagues so customizable.
