Is NBA 2010 Available?

When I was looking through the Fantasy Sports API game resource documentation (http://developer.yahoo.com/fantasysports/guide/game-resource.html), I noticed that NBA and NHL 2010 is not there. Is this just an example grid and do those exist somewhere since those seasons have started?

Thanks!

    Use 'nba' or '249' as the game_key for NBA 2010

    Yep, thanks Zippy! Our documentation needs to be updated, but the game ID for NBA 2010 is indeed 249. You can get similar information by constructing a query like:

    Thanks Zippy and Sean! Both work great! So "nba" uses the current season? What does it use if it is in between seasons?

    If you're in between seasons, "nba" will show "last" season up until we launch the configuration changes to set up the new season, which is usually less than a month before a game actually "launches" (ie, the game is available for registration through the website). Once we've set up the new season, then "nba" will default to that. So, basically, in between seasons, it'll magically flip over to the "new" season somewhat randomly and without a strict correlation to what's happening on the fantasy site itself.
