Journeyman Shaq

Postby Kenny on Sun Nov 20, 2011 9:36 pm

Wasn't quite sure what section this really fit into. Even though it's about a specific NBA player, since it'll cover both NBA Live and 2K for the most part, I thought I'd put it in the Virtual Hardwood section. I'd also understand if it got moved to the Photoshop Studio section. Anyway:

Journeyman Shaq!

If you're anything like me, you're a big Shaq fan. During the course of his career, he provided great entertainment, whether it'd be his sheer dominance on the court or his many great quotes off it.

If you play any NBA games and you see him on the free agency list, you begin to wonder: what would my team be like with Shaq? Perhaps you've even made that signing in your dynasty/association... I know I have!

So here's the idea; I want the NLSC members to help me out with something called "Journeyman Shaq". Basically, if you see Shaq on a team in your dynasty (preferably one that hasn't already been done before hand), I want you to take a screenshot and either:

-Make an image 200 pixels wide by 300 pixels heigh and post it in this thread. These constraints will make sure the images are uniform.

or

-PM me the screenshot and I can make it the correct size.

I suppose the rules are to basically post within the forum guidelines. And for the start, try to refrain from trading him to a random team and playing an exhibition game just for the photo op. I know I played an exhibition game with the Celtics for one, but it was the team he was with during NBA 2k11. If you can specify what NBA video game it's from as well, that'd be excellent (y)

Of course, this isn't just limited to the traditional NBA teams. Expansion teams, All-Star and any other teams would be great too.

------------------------------

I have a feeling this will probably fall flat on it's ass, but I thought it was an interesting idea and can be entertaining during the lockout. I'm hoping it'll see screenshots from all different basketball games and hopefully even become a continued idea for other players (Journeyman Ammo maybe?)

EDIT 2/12/11: With 15 teams in the NBA 30, we're officially at the halfway point! Thanks to all the current contributors. Hopefully the next 15 can come relatively quickly as well :)

Send as many as you want. Just keep in mind that for the moment, there'll only be one per team (ie: 1 pic from the Nuggets, 1 from Miami etc). If you have 2k12, I heard there's classic teams like the Magic and the Lakers that have Shaq on them. His days with Phoenix might be the hardest to get, since he was only really with them for about half a season or so.

But yeah, anything you send in, tell me what game it is and if it's from a dynasty/association story and it'll get posted in the gallery. The overall aim is to not only get Shaq in 30 or more jerseys, but to also span across as many NBA games as possible.

Thanks for showing interest (y)

Cool idea. (Y) I once had Shaq in an NBA Live 2000 Blazers franchise, I don't have any screenshots from the time but I could whip one up.

That would be awesome if you could do that. It'd be cool to get a vast array of NBA games for this, since he was around since some of the very early NBA Live games. I think I might be able to get him with the Suns from NBA Live 08 since there was a roster update after he was traded.

Also, I think I'll make it so that you can post a picture of Shaq in your favourite team's uniform. I just didn't want one person to post 29 pictures of him just because they traded for him in the game menu and decided to play an exhibition game. So you could post one of him as a member of the Bulls, Axel. for the Rockets etc etc

Nah, I just think stick to teams he's actually randomly ended up on in Dynasty/Association, that's much cooler (Y)

Of course if you have instances like Andrew mentioned where you remember him being on a team in Dynasty mode but don't have screenshot, I don't have any issues going back & getting one :P

i think this would be cool too. it would spotlight some of the older Lives and plus, it's kind of lame to go to the menu and trade him to your favorite team to get a screenshot

Ideally I'd like it to be all shots from places he's gone during people's dynasties and his default team for the corresponding video game. The ammendment to the rule was more of a way to get more people involved and with some team's cap situations, signing or trading for Shaq could be tricky.

Anyway, I just added a couple from NBA Live 06 :)

Thanks for that Andrew (y) it's cool to get something from as far back as 2000. Definitely a nice poster shot and I'm sure it's one Shaq would let Mr Ewing know about for many years to come :lol:

It's been added :)

The face textures were actually pretty good for the time. The jerseys definitely don't look that good now though, the font was generic as you noted and they had a very "painted on" look.

NBA Live 2000 was a really good game for its time but going back and playing it now, it is certainly dated.

Thanks for your additions guys, I've updated the gallery :)

The X: I decided to replace the two pictures I had. Definitely some great shots in that lot and it gave me an idea of possibly putting up "NLSC Vs Shaq". In my My Player story, I have footage of myself actually dunking on him, so I might implement that soon. If pictures of Miami Shaq continue to be popular, I might also have a subcategory for that.

Phil89: Thanks for replying to my PM. All those shots are great and I'm currently trying to decide whether I should put Sonics Shaq in seperate category to OKC Shaq (Lamrock would probably agree with it :P )

Keep em coming (y)

EDIT: I played NBA Live 06 yesterday to get those screen shots and maybe it's because I haven't played it in years, but it's really hard. Either that or I just suck at it now :P

NBA Live 06 had some pretty brutal comeback logic. Still one of my favourite games in the series, though. :)

I'd say it's definitely my favourite. As it's documented, I've gotten the most playing time out of NBA Live 10, but 06 was more interesting due to the fact that players could get injured. The other two games I played were 98 and 08. 98 was a classic and I've been trying so hard to get it running on my new PC, but I'm having no success. 08 on PS3 makes 10 look like a masterpiece. Gameplay-wise, that game was such a decline from 06.

Anyway, back to topic: if anyone owns 2k12 and can get me Shaq from Orlando and Lakers, it'd be much appreciated. I think I'll also check the Dynasty/Association stories section for more stories that have Shaq involved with other teams as well and PM some more writers. I'm happy with how this is going so far :)

That's a great shot. As I've said before, I'm guessing that Miami Shaq will be popular since he was with the Heat during some of the most recent games (up til Live 08 if I remember correctly), so at some point I'll create a Miami sub-section. It's also great to get something from Live 07; I never actually played that one (or 09 for that matter).

Thanks for the kind words; glad you like the idea (y)

EDIT: Just added it to the Miami Heat section :)

That's awesome Phil89, thanks! I was wondering if we'd see a BobShaq anytime soon. The gallery is coming along quite nicely at the moment.

I really regret not getting a screenshot of him playing for Golden State in my dynasty... hopefully it's happened in someone else's.

Decided to take your advice. The only reason I believe I couldn't get a screen shot before was because it was the season I decided to sim half of (season 3). First two he was with Cleveland, the 3rd he was with Golden State and then he was signed by me. So NellieShaq has now been added to the gallery.

10 down, 20 to go :)

The quality is fine, as long as the shot is clear, all is well. The Big Fossil has been added. Which reminds me, towards the end of this (if we get all 30), a nickname competition would be a must.

I think coming up with nicknames for all the teams is going to be tough. I've just been trying to think of a few but beyond the ones that have already been thrown out there for his real life stints with certain teams, I'm drawing a blank at the moment.

And some extra screens, if you'd like them. Shaq in his prime on the Lakers from NBA Live 2002 and on the Suns in NBA Live 09.

Sweet, thanks for the front page coverage. Hopefully with that exposure we can get him playing for 30 teams even quicker. I decided to use the NBA Live 2002 Lakers Shaq in "Shaq 30" since it's become a slightly more obscure game now and one of the aims of this is to get him across as many as possible. I'll use the other Lakers shot down the track when/if we get more of him playing for them. The Suns one is great too, plus it's the only NBA Live 09 one we've had so far.

Cheers for the TNL plug and the kind words as well :)

I have him on the Bulls in my 2K11 association and I even took a screenshot of him, but the pic was on my old hard drive. Will take one when I face them again.

You're welcome. :) Glad I could help out with those screens, almost at the halfway mark now.

Thanks Martti, that'd be great :D

And looking at that Suns screen shot, NBA Live 09's graphics looked pretty good. What was the actual game like? My housemate and I usually bought NBA Live games every two years, so I didn't get to play that one.

It wasn't too bad. There were some clunky animations including a rather frustrating one that sometimes happened when trying to jump for a rebound (basically just a little hop without even putting their arms up) and your timing was just slightly off, but it played an OK game of basketball.

That makes lucky thirteen. Just two more and we've covered half the teams in the league, not a bad effort.

Thanks Martti. :) I dunno why but he looks particularly awesome in that Bulls jersey. Probably because of nostalgia and wanting him to be teammates with MJ when I was a kid. Interested to see what teams come next.

I got him in a retro Houston jersey, uploading it now.

EDIT:

How did he get in the Rockets? Well, I made an association with historical teams, and in the second season, I traded Olajuwon for the younger Shaq(notice how those two Shaqs are totally different). The trade was well..a disaster. I never could play with Shaq that much, while Olajuwon went on with the Magic to get the title. Shaq left me in the offseason, and now, after 4 years, I finally made the playoffs.

The difference between those Shaqs is that the All-Star one is the Lakers Shaq.

I can`t remember the team that he actually left me for...hmm, I will look it up later and maby provide you with another pic.

Thanks Cruzerr :) it's probably not a trade I would have made, since Hakeem was a beast in his own right, but having Shaq on your team is always fun. I was just wondering who the team he was playing for in that East jersey was. Since you indicated it was Lakers Shaq, he would have been in the West.

He is in Lakers yes, but because of the amount of the teams...I have one on the East and the other one in the West. xD

If I got time, I will upload where Shaq is now.

Thanks for the heads up X... I'm surprised I didn't spot that earlier :facepalm:

And Cruzerr, that'd be great. But if time doesn't permit though, that's fine as well.
