[5-5] Fear the Brow | Chapter 2: Time for change.

Decided to make this dynasty completely out of the blue, to be honest. I haven't been to this page in ages and even though I did make a few attempts at dynasty stories years ago, I am really not familiar with all that nowadays. Despite that, I thought that writing down all the stuff that goes on will make the game a lot more interesting for me, as will giving the players some actual characters and stories that they can be built around.

Considering the fact that I've been away from all the NBA kind of stuff for quite some time now, I won't really make any promises or big goals for myself or anyone else who decides to follow this story. The main goal for me will be to spark up some of the NBA 2K13 association experience, seeing how I enjoy some sort of fictional character development. To create this certain type of character development, I will probably bring in the legendary "behind the scenes" kind of posts, something along the lines of what Sit, Chaser7 and many others have done in the past.

I'll be using NBA 2K13 with completely random settings and sliders, something that will make the game enjoyable and realistic. I'll use the default rosters (which means no Harden to Houston trade etc). Other than that, just enjoy what happens and I am absolutely hoping to receive any kind of feedback - comments and constructive criticism.

Here goes!

      A new idendity.
    It was just the morning, 7 AM to be exact. There was another hour until the morning workout session. Anthony Davis arrived an hour early to the practice facility, clearly hyped up about the upcoming season, and the start of his NBA career in general. He entered the dressing room with a stunned facial expression, sparkling like a little star despite the spectacularly crooked teeth. The actual NBA vibe kicked in at last, he felt ready. Ready to take on the league, ready to lead the Hornets.

    He sat down on the wooden bench between the rows of wardrobes, glaring around the room from underneath his Charlotte Hornets snapback. He removed the massive Dre headphones from around his head, allowing for them to fall down to his neck level. Only then did he hear the repeated bounces from the gym, echoing through the empty hallways of the practice facility in this quiet morning. As there was still plenty of time until the start of the actual practice, he slowly raised up, kicking his feet into action to give the gym a quick look. Having made his way to the dark gym, he quickly noticed the source of the bouncing sound - it was coach Monty Williams, bouncing a basketball through his legs as he sat down on a metal chair, curiously staring at the MacBook placed on his lap. He never tracked his attention over to Anthony, which in a way set a little more inspiration to the lanky Davis.

    After curiously looking around in the facility, Anthony returned to the dressing room. By that time, a few others had made it: Wayne, Al Farouq, Robin, Gilbert, and to the surprise for the rest of the crowd - Terrance Williams. Apparently, the signing of Williams had recieved very little attention from the present individuals. However, apart from AD, Farouq and Robin, all of Wayne, Gilbert and Terrence were new to the team, having missed out on training camp along with the rest of the team.

    After the somewhat tired, yet partially anxious and impatient dressing room talk among the youngsters, the practice time finally arrived, as did the rest of the team. Majority of the players quickly rushed over to the cart of basketballs, ready to throw up shots non-stop, unable to hide their enormous anticipation for the upcoming season. It had been a long offseason, and it was clear judging by the faces of the players. After approximately five minutes of unsettled shootaround, coach Monty blew his sparkingly yellow whistle in attempt to catch the attention of the players. Long story short, the players quickly gathered around coach Monty Williams, assistant coach Zach Brewer and trainer Corie Love.

    "Morning. First of all, some of you might be somewhat surprised to see a new face in here - Terrence. He's signed a full year contract with the team, so he's apart of it now, full time." said coach Monty, shifting his gaze from one face to another, examining the players as some of them curiously observe, yet others stroll around rather carelessly. "We've made some new additions in the past few days, with Gilbert, Darrell, Wayne, and now Terrence. It's a new team with no real idendity as of yet, we lack experience or veteran presence. For that, Derek Fisher has also signed with us, however, as you can see, he is not present right now. Derek will make it to New Orleans in the upcoming days, so it won't be a problem. Anyway, as I was saying - we, the Hornets, are still a team with no certain idendity, no certain reputation. Last season is behind us and hopefully we won't have to carry anything bad from the past with us. To start off the year, we're going to work extremely hard on defense and rebounding. On offense, we'll make sure that the inside-outside game is working on all cylinders, as we clearly do have great presence in each, the frontcourt and the backcourt. We have plenty of capable shooters on our team who shouldn't hesitate to let it fly from behind the line - Ryan, Eric, Gilbert, Austin and many others among you. A lot of the offense will be ran through the two and five positions - Eric and AD. Anyhow, to start off, get ready to embrace defense, hitting the boards, working the inside-outside game and so on. The upcoming months will be difficult, a young team as we are, don't expect anything to be a piece of cake. This is a long project over here, but we've got one single goal - to bring the championship to New Orleans, be it in a year or longer, we'll stay focused on that certain goal."

    The crowd around Monty stood still all the time, paying a lot of attention to what the coach was saying. The focused and hungry gaze on each players face appeared frightening even to the coach himself, but he knew that it was all for the good. Only ten minutes of the practice had gone by, yet they appeared eager. Only ten minutes...

    ... An hour later.

    "Good god, how long this nigga finna' keep us running!?" muttered Austin to himself as he leaned on the construction of the basketball hoop, wiping sweat off his forehead in an exhausted manner.

Quite the first read (Y)

I'm not sure I like the signing of Arenas as you already have two up-and-coming point guards on the roster, however, I'm sure Arenas will make for some great story lines down the road.

Glad you enjoyed it. And yes, the main intention of signing Arenas was for the sake of the story - he's definitely known to be a colorful character, so I'll make sure to spice up some of the story around him. I also found the roster somewhat lackluster on the offensive end, seeing how Austin Rivers is really nothing in real life, and Vasquez is just.. Vasquez. We'll see how it pans out.

On another note, could anybody tell me how to take screenshots of 2K13? I'm in quite some trouble figuring out that part, and it's quite an essential part of the presentation of the story.

    Spurs rally in 4th, down Hornets 106-101
    106 - San Antonio @ New Orleans - 101

    Image
    Tony Parker going for 2 of his team-high 19 points.

      New Orleans, 31st October, 2012 - The New Orleans Hornets were ready to kick off the season making use of the home court advantage, but the experienced conference rivals San Antonio Spurs had other plans. They kicked the Hornets off with a balanced team effort and a late game spurt to close out the game.

      With five players scoring in double-figures, the Spurs capped off the game with an extremely balanced offense. Tony Parker chipped in with 19 points and 11 assists. Tim Duncan, Kahwi Leonard and Manu Ginobili each had 16 points. Ginobili stood out on the defensive end, finishing the game with an impressive 5 steals and 4 blocks.

      Amongst the Hornets, the most outstanding performers for the night were Eric Gordon, debutant Anthony Davis and most surprisingly the Venezuelan guard, Greivis Vasquez. Gordon finished with game-high 23 points. Anthony Davis debuted with 22 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks, clearly playing well enough on the defensive end to live up to his reputation as an "once in a lifetime defender". The Hornets received brief support from their bench guard, Greivis Vasquez, who managed to fill the boxscore with a 11 point, 3 rebound, 3 assist and 2 steal game despite playing only 8 minutes. Austin Rivers started his career with 9 points along with 3 rebounds and 3 assists, similarly to Vasquez.

    Gordon explodes in a 109-101 win against the Jazz
    101 - Utah Jazz @ New Orleans Hornets - 109

    Image
    Gordon finishing a tough layup with 3 defenders on him.

      New Orleans, 2nd November, 2012 - The game in New Orleans kicked off in a stunning manner, as in the first quarter, Eric Gordon matched the amount of points scored by the Utah team as a whole. Gordon and the opponents each scored 23 points in the first quarter. The team show was clearly stolen by Eric Gordon, who set a new franchise record in points scored with 52 and field goals made with 21.

      Besides scoring, Gordon carried his team in other elements of the game. He chipped in with 52 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals, shooting a spectacular 21-33 from the field, including 8-12 from downtown. What made the scoring outburst even more impressive was the fact that Gordon only got to the free throw line once, connecting on each shot.

      Looking past the spotlight which is clearly on Gordon, the 1st draft pick Anthony Davis and 10th overall pick, Austin Rivers, each played extremely efficiently. Anthony Davis finished the game with 14 points on 7-8 shooting. He also had 9 rebounds and 2 blocks. Austin Rivers tallied 18 points in 18 minutes, hitting 8 of his 9 shots from the field, including one three pointer.

      Despite the fact that the Hornets appeared unstoppable that game, some of the Jazz players looked really good in the game as well. Utah's center Al Jefferson scored 24 points, but struggled to grab too many rebounds against the phenomenal rookie, Anthony Davis, grabbing only 3 rebounds for the night. Paul Millsap on the other hand finished with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Mo Williams scored 16 points and also had 7 assists for the night. Randy Foye brought instant offense off the bench, scoring 11 points in only 10 minutes. He shot an impressive 60% from the three point line, connecting on 3 of his 5 attempts.
      UTA: 23 29 21 28 - 101

Gordon was really a beast that game, at one point in the first half, I found it difficult to miss from anywhere. Went 5-5 from the three point line in the first half, so I just decided to stick to it and keep firing away from back there. Thanks for following, stay tuned!

Anyway, that was a huge game by Eric Gordon. Good to see you getting some production out of Austin Rivers as well.

I'm aware of what you pointed out, but thanks for the reminder, lol. A little bit of exaggerating can only spark more interest to this brand new story. But that aside, it was indeed a huge game by him as I said earlier, it was really just unreal how he was lighting it up, especially from downtown. And yes, Austin Rivers has been surprisingly good, even though I decreased a lot of his skills seeing how he fails to produce in real life. We'll see where it all goes though, thanks for following. :)

    Gordon carries the Hornets past the Thunder.
    101 - OKC @ NOH - 113

    Davis comes all over on the so-called Iblocka's face.

      New Orleans, 16th November, 2012 - The Oklahoma City Thunder arrived in New Orleans with great hopes, having won 7 of their last 9 games. The Thunder are clearly led by their explosive duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, with each of the two being considered the MVP candidates this year. However, the defensive presence in New Orleans quickly shattered the Thunders dreams, as the Hornets finished the first half with a double-digit lead.

      Once again, New Orleans phenom Eric Gordon shined, chipping in with 36 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists, connecting on 15 of his 25 shot attempts. The ROY candidate Anthony Davis finished the game with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocks, introducing himself to another known defensive anchor - Serge Ibaka, by stuffing a massive one-handed tomahawk down into his throat early in the first quarter. As per usual, the Hornets role players played a big role in the victory. The high-flying Terrence Williams ended the game with a solid all-around performance of 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists on 5-6 shooting. Robin Lopez scored 10 points and clawed 7 rebounds in 14 minutes of playing time off the bench.

      Perhaps the key to the victory was shutting down Kevin Durant, who only managed to score 9 points in the game, shooting an abysmal 4-19 from the field. However, he managed to impact the game in many other ways, snatching 11 rebounds and 4 steals. The trigger-happy guard Russell Westbrook finished the game with 26 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists. He appeared rather frustrated with how the team performed, as he was caught trading words with the coach and Kevin Durant in a rather heated manner. James Harden was perhaps the best performer for the Thunder, chipping in with 18 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals. OKC's rookie Perry Jones also appeared extremely serviceable in limited minutes, as he finished with 8 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in only 9 minutes of playing time. However, all that was clearly not enough to face the red hot Eric Gordon and company.

    Durant was ice cold, so it's no surprise I managed to pull off the game, even more so as the players were really hitting their shots. Satisfying victory it is. Stay tuned!

        Vasquez glaring up towards Robin Lopez in a rather careless manner, flattered about his attempt to encourage the team.

        Time for change.

      The joy was clear in each and every winners face after the game against Indiana. The excitement and satisfaction was visible on everyone's face, but not on Grevis Vasquezes. The team walked into the locker rooms, cheering, bumping fists with each other, enjoying the moment after the big fourth quarter run to crush the Pacers on their own home court. As the team sat down in the locker room, ready to hit the showers, the lone Vasquez appeared somewhat troubled, despite finishing his career night with a 29-point game. The trade rumors were spreading all over and his loss of motivation to play for the Hornets was definitely clear to everyone with a slight of clue. A few minutes later, as the instant joy over the win had started to shrug off of the players, the news about Eric Gordon's injury arrived. He had been sent to an MRI to check on his
      ankle. The positive atmosphere disappeared in a blink of an eye, as if the Venezuelan guards mood had infected others.

      "It'll be fine, you saw the injury, he'll recover from it in like no time at all, no doubt!" said Robin Lopez, clearly trying to encourage his teammates as they appeared to have sunk deep in some emotional dark spot. "Plus, y'all seen how the Va-squeeze run things. What you got, like 40 points tonight? Beast unleashed!"

      Vasquez showed little to no emotion as a response, briefly glancing up towards Robin's face as if he found his attitude somewhat goofy, rather than encouraging. He grabbed his towel and hit the showers before anyone else, leaving the rest of the team to glare at each others faces in a rather confused manner.


        Later that night...

      The New Orleans Hornets General Manager, Dell Demps, was sitting comfortably in his office at the Hornets practice facility, holding his feet on the desk as he leaned back on the chair, browsing through the newest cover of Slam magazine. He had received multiple trade offers in the past few days, mainly centered around Greivis Vasquez, but definitely nothing that would appear intriguing enough to let go of the young and talented six-foot-six point guard. All of a sudden, the phone right next to his feet started to ring loudly. He continued reading for a good twenty seconds before reaching over to the phone to pick it up. It was the General Manager of the Washington Wizards, Ernie Grunfield. After the brief, friendly and polite catching up, Ernie got to the point. One that definitely appeared considerable, perhaps even got goosebumps on Dell's forearms.

      "Anyway, Dell.. Players on both of our teams have expressed their displeasure in the last month. We've been looking at Greivis Vasquez here in Washington for a while now, and tonight's fantastic outing by him definitely made it even clearer that we do want him. Plus, we want to clear out any chemistry issues that we currently have here in Washington. Our offer would give you a chance to get another player that might turn into a superstar caliber player one day..."

    __________________________________________

    Go ahead and guess the offer.
