Yeah it does seem like he would be the one out of the four that they would most want to keep. For the same reason that he is an attractive trade target. I'm looking for a good young big man but having trouble finding someone who I like, but that is also realistic to get.

Derrick Favors (Thought it might be slightly realistic given the depth they have. But he is probably the most valuable of the 4)
Greg Monroe (Doubt Pistons would trade him for anything)
Kenneth Faried (If I did that badreligionau would probably never read this again. :lol:)
Brook Lopez (Nets are 'win now' so draft picks wouldn't be worth anything to them)
Anthony Davis (Hornets just used a no.1 pick on him. Not going anywhere)
Roy Hibbert (Big contract and wasn't that impressed by him on my Live 10 game)
Kevin Love (Don't really have the right assets to trade for him)
JaVale McGee (Wizards only just got rid of him)
DeAndre Jordan (Same as Lopez really)
JJ Hickson, DeJuan Blair (Available as free agents next season, don't want to give anything up to get them)

Guess I'll just have to stick with Seraphin/Patterson/Dalembert/Martin for now. I could add some really good frontcourt talent in the off-season anyway I guess.

I got Larry Sanders, he's been beasting. Though he's not really the same caliber guy then those you mentioned. I'd get Favors now, cause he jumps to like 85-90 rating in 3 years.

Definitely a rough start, but you've definitely set it up to be challenging and it'll hopefully work out for you in the long run. Looks like you're having quarters where it's all clicking and you've got the hang of things, but lose your grip on the game in the next twelve minutes. Hope you can break the streak soon and string together a few wins, though the slow start has made it a somewhat unique story thread. ;)

I was down 93-90 with 30 seconds left and the commentator said I needed to foul quickly. Which I did without thinking.
Obviously after that happened I realised how stupid it was. Why did he say that? Stupid game. :cry:
My 3pt shooting was good. Beal (6-10) and Cook (4-7) in particular were knocking them down. All I can do is take the positives and keep trying for that win.

Maybe you can tank this season and get dwight or CP3! And get a higher pick :)

Sounds like a good plan. But could CP3 and Wall play on the same team or would I have to trade Wall? Doubt he would want to be a backup.

Oh and tanking would mean that I'm losing on purpose. Wish I was good enough to have the choice of winning or not. :P

November 2012 Summary

ImageImageImageImageImage

With the season now well under way, a surprise leader has emerged in the east. The 76ers are a game clear of the Bulls, Heat and Celtics.
At the other end is Washington, who are yet to win their first game this season. They have gone an amazing fourteen games without a win.
It isn't all doom and gloom for the Wizards though. The form of John Wall and Bradley Beal has been really outstanding despite all the losses.
Rather strangely both Wall and Beal won eastern conference player of the month and eastern conference rookie of the month, respectively.
Beal is currently leading the field in the rookie of the year race. He's averaging 18/4/4 and has started every one of their fourteen games.
There has been bad injury news for some teams. Stars Andre Iguodala, Joakim Noah and Manu Ginobili will all miss the rest of the season.

Iggy, CP3 and Dwight always become free agents. I'd suggest getting Iggy and Dwight if you have the cap space.

A rough first month, but the play of Wall and Beal is certainly encouraging. Nice to see Beal pick up Rookie of the Month honours there, his numbers are pretty solid.

3/12/12

Wizards increase the average age of their squad further with trade

Image

After a terrible 0-14 start to the season, Washington GM Steve Kerr has decided to make a move in an attempt to improve their defense.
He has agreed to send Martell Webster, Jan Vesely and two second round picks to Detroit for veterans Corey Maggette and Jason Maxiell.
It's a pretty low risk move given that Maggette is on an expiring contract, whilst Maxiell's wage will drop from $5m to $2m after this season.

Detroit are moving forward with a rebuild of their own based around a promising core of Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond and Brandon Knight.
Webster and Vesely now join a younger supporting cast that also includes Rodney Stuckey, Jonas Jerebko, Kyle Singler and Khris Middleton.
After their dominance of the east during the early-to-mid 2000's, including a championship, the Pistons haven't made the playoffs since 2009.
They will be hoping that Monroe can develop into a superstar center and guide them back to the heights that they enjoyed for so many seasons.

Washington are having an absolutely horrendous season so far. Maybe it's not suprising though given they decided to go into full rebuild mode.
Having their two promising youngsters shoulder all of the burden probably isn't helping their cause either. Leading a franchise isn't an easy task.
Maggette should give the Wizards another scoring option. Nearly all of the pressure to score has been on guards John Wall and Bradley Beal so far.
He was averaging 14 points per game with the Pistons. Maxiell's rebounding will come in handy too. He was grabbing 9 per game off the bench.


Image Image

Detroit receive
Martell Webster - 26 - SF - $1.60m - 1 year (69)
Jan Vesely - 22 - PF - $6.82m - 2 years (63)
Wizards 2013 2nd round pick
Wizards 2014 2nd round pick

Projected line-up:
Greg Monroe - Chalie Villanueva - Tayshaun Prince - Rodney Stuckey - Brandon Knight
Bench options:
Will Bynum, Jonas Jerebko, Andre Drummond, Jan Vesely, Martell Webster, Kyle Singler, Khris Middleton



Image Image

Washington receive
Corey Maggette - 33 - SF - $10.92m - 1 year (73)
Jason Maxiell - 29 - PF - $14.05m - 5 years (70)

Projected line-up:
Kevin Seraphin - Patrick Patterson - Corey Maggette - Bradley Beal - John Wall
Bench options:
Michael Redd, Beno Udrih, Samuel Dalembert, Donte Greene, Daequan Cook, Jason Maxiell, Kenyon Martin

Washington Wizards [0-14] vs Miami Heat [10-5]

Heat demolish Wizards after close start

Image

WAS - 30 23 15 18 86
MIA - 32 31 44 30 137

Player of the Game: Dwyane Wade
(30pt, 1reb, 6ast, 3stl)


Top Scorers
Dwyane Wade - 30
LeBron James - 23
Norris Cole - 21
Corey Maggette - 19
John Wall - 17
Ray Allen - 15
Bradley Beal - 14
Michael Redd - 11
Rashard Lewis - 11
Chris Bosh - 10

Assists
Mario Chalmers - 11

Rebounds
Chris Bosh - 15
Joel Anthony - 6

Mike Miller - 5
Kevin Seraphin - 5
Michael Redd - 5


Maggette had 14 points in the first quarter (5-7 fgm-a, 4-5 3ptm-a). Was probably the only positive in the game for me.
I pretty much gave up in the third quarter and just bombed threes. Hence the 50 point loss. I was just so annoyed because I was within 4-6 points for 95% of the second quarter before they stretched it to 10 at the half. And then as usual it became a 20+ point lead in the blink of an eye.
Only three more games to attempt to avoid the Nets losing streak record. :?

Sounds good. Although a part of me would feel guilty if I ended up with a top pick in the draft and then signed Dwight and CP3. Easiest rebuild ever?! :mrgreen:

I was trying to emulate the Clippers' unbeaten month, but I think I was doing it wrong? :wink: It's nice that they got the awards, but it's not surprising that they have good numbers as no one else on my team is doing much of anything.

I was only down by 1 point with 2 minutes left in the third, but then they hit 5 threes in a row to end the quarter and it was pretty much game over.
Got the lead down to 8 with the first basket in the fourth, then the usual collapse happened.

It could only be worse if Wall and Beal got injured for the season. :lol: Sure it's interesting. It's also a huge test on my patience and restraint from breaking things.

You mean a trade or just switching my rotations around? I had Redd starting at SF, but now Maggette is here and he's a much better scoring threat. My biggest problem is probably rebounding. I think only Seraphin has managed to grab 10 in a game so far this season.

I'll be really annoyed if I only win a handful of games and then miss out on at least a top 3 pick. :x


Btw, how do I get videos from 2k13 onto youtube? I've got it onto my 2k share thingy, but what do I do now? Live 10 was much easier (Unless I'm just missing something really obvious).

So close there. Definitely admire you for sticking with it through a very rough start.

I believe it's a similar situation where you can upload them to nba-2k.com and download them from there. I must admit I haven't looked into it that much as I'm playing on PC and just always use Fraps.

I hate losing but I kind of feel like if I just simmed the rest of the season I'd be missing out on something. The game would lose some authenticity to me if I wasn't in total control or something like that. So I endure it. :P

I've linked my youtube account to my MyPlayer account in the social accounts tab on the 2k website. But I can't see anyway to even link to a video, let alone download it.

Well top pick would be awesome and it's not that unrealistic at this point, but I'm certainly trying to win every game.

I hope so! Although a punch in the face would be more enjoyable than these games have been so far to be honest. :P Hopefully I can draft an NBA-ready guy next season and pick up some solid free agents. I think with a good off-season (and if I improve my ability on 2k13) I can maybe challenge for eighth seed next season.

I simmed the last quarter of this. Couldn't be bothered playing it out. I made a great comeback in the second quarter, cutting the lead to 5, but they exploded again late in the quarter and into the third. :(

Dwight was out injured, which obviously helped me. But even with a 9 point lead at halftime I expected them to comeback hard. Would have been a nice team to get my first win against.

Haha you can at least claim you broke a record eh?
Man these games must be a chore, I would just try push on to the next season. Rest assured you will have a few changes to make then which should be a bit more interesting.

EDIT: I just checked your settings. Are you still playing with the default sliders? Perhaps that could be your problem..... Are you also still on 8min quarters?

I have only just started but the ones I am using seem quite good, maybe a tad easy, but that is just going on one game so we will see. I think that would make a difference.

But I also think it may reduce the stats a bit, in the game I played both teams scored just over 100 and I wouldn't say we were playing that slow.

I'd have probably lowered the difficulty a notch and then turned it back up when things started getting too easy again, so once again kudos for sticking with it. Definitely one of the most unusual and unique starts for a story thread.

Gordon looking for a way out of New Orleans

Image

Star New Orleans guard Eric Gordon has finally had enough of playing for the Hornets and has allegedly demanded an immediate trade.
It's no secret that the 23 year old doesn't want to be in New Orleans. He signed a very lucrative offer sheet from the Suns in the summer.
The Hornets then matched the offer, despite him expressing his desire to sign with Phoenix. Now he is forcing the issue with this demand.
Having been secured as part of the Chris Paul with the Clippers, Gordon has major value for the Hornets and they won't give him up cheaply.
It's not a completely terrible situation for the Hornets though. His injury-proneness and monster salary are two big reasons for trading him.
They could secure some valuable draft picks or some youngsters with big potential to place around new franchise centrepiece Anthony Davis.
Getting rid of Gordon would also allow rookie Austin Rivers to gain a starting role, which would help with his development as an NBA player.
Rumours are circulating that a deal could be reached to trade Gordon in the next few days. It will be interesting to see if he gets his wish.

Breaking news: Hornets, Jazz & Wizards agree to three-team trade

Image

Only a day after announcing that he wanted a trade out of New Orleans, Eric Gordon has gotten his wish. He is now a Utah Jazz player.
The complex deal involves nine players and several draft picks. New Orleans decided to cash in on Gordon before his right knee gave out.
They receive solid young center Kevin Seraphin, veterans Samuel Dalembert and Beno Udrih and two first round picks from the Wizards.
Raja Bell and Utah's 2013 first round pick also head to New Orleans. The package will help them rebuild through the draft and free agency.
Utah get the guard they have been looking for in Gordon. He will give them another scoring option alongside Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap.
The Wizards get Derrick Favors and Randy Foye from the Jazz and Roger Mason and Dominic McGuire from the Hornets as part of the deal.

New Orleans may take some criticism for seemingly caving to their player's demand, but they had some good reasons to trade Gordon.
First of which is the fact that he has a history of being injury-prone. The most serious injury has been cartilage damage in his right knee.
It forced him to miss a large chunk of last season due to his rehabilitation. Many experts feel that his knee could hamper him in the future.
Then there is the fact that he just didn't want to be there. He was hurting team chemistry and wasn't putting in 100% every time he played.
Lastly there is his monster $43m contract. With that off their books the Hornets now have some cap room to work with in the off-season.
Could Chris Paul return? Would they be able to pair up Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis in the frontcourt? Both are now possible for them.
Paul returning is probably unlikely, given what happened the first time. A defensive partnership of Howard and Davis would be scary though.
They will have about $23m to spend on free agents. It should easily enough for a max contract player or a couple of all-star calibre players.
The 2014 pick from the Wizards could be a top 5 pick, depending on how quickly Washington can build their squad and improve on the court.
Meanwhile the two 2013 first round picks could be useful if any highly rated prospects are still available in the pick 15-25 region of the draft.
With Gordon now gone, rookie Austin Rivers will now get the opportunity to have a starting role and develop into an impressive NBA player.
They weren't going to get market value for Gordon given his injury record, so this deal is a very nice return for them all things considered.
Sitting in 12th place in the western conference with a 9-13 record, the Hornets may decide to shut down their season to help their rebuild.


Utah have already extended Al Jefferson's contract this season. Now they have made another big move to show their championship intent.
Despite his promising future, Favors was stuck behind Jefferson and Millsap in Utah's rotation. Now they've gotten better without losing much.
With Jefferson, Millsap and Kanter they still have an enviable frontcourt. Favors leaving just means that Jeremy Evans will have to up his game.
The Jazz have been needing a star guard ever since trading away Deron Williams to the Nets. Ironically in a deal that saw them acquire Favors.
Gordon will help them to spread the floor and stop their big men getting double-teamed in the post. His range will really improve their offense.
Utah now has a good balance of youth and experience. Jefferson, Millsap and Mo Williams all provide good leadership and aren't troublemakers.
And the likes of Gordon, Enes Kanter, Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks all secure their long term future and ability to compete for years to come.
The Jazz are currently having a great season. They're third in the western conference with a 16-9 record and look set to go deep in the playoffs.


Washington GM Steve Kerr has taken advantage of Gordon's situation to achieve his own major goal of acquiring a talented young big man.
There were rumours last month that Kerr had contacted the Jazz bout a possible of a trade for Favors, now they have finally acquired him.
He will partner Patrick Patterson in the Wizards frontcourt. With John Wall and Bradley Beal also there, the future is bright in Washington.
It seems that Kerr wants to build the Wizards into a playoff calibre team as quickly as possible and that the 2014 draft was too long to wait.
They still have their own pick and the Rockets pick in the 2013 draft. Both could be high lottery picks and add further talent to their squad.
Drafting a top prospect next season is highly probable as they have started the season with a 0-20 record and should be in line for a top pick.
With the Rockets hovering just below the .500 mark, they could end up with another lottery pick depending on how Houston end the season.
They also have the luxury of significant cap room heading into a free agency period which boasts the likes of Dwight Howard and Chris Paul.
Despite the suddenness of this deal, Favors will be available to play against the Heat in Miami tonight. It's a really big boost for team morale.
Washington currently sit bottom of the eastern conference. They've got the worst record in the league, starting with twenty straight losses.
