The Lakers' roster was all done by the computer, but it turned out quite interesting post-dwight! They even have Brand coming off the bench. Might try and get them to make a big trade for a PG, not sure who yet. Using a 48th pick, no matter how good he's doing, as your starting PG while Kobe is in the last year of his contract makes noooo sense.

Jennings is really putting his stamp on this team, he's brilliant. I think he's 3rd in the league in ppg right now! I don't expect it to last, and I get a little worried whenever he posts a small number of assists and a high volume of shots. But...

Jennings needs a little bit of work on consistency. Nice job limiting Kobe! Trey's performance was indeed surprising.

I like your ideas. There's already structures for season and career highs in NST, just didn't think to make sure to check after each box score and create a "facts" page in them for broken records. The milestones is a nice idea as well. I'll put them in my ToDo list, and hope to implement them soon enough.

Loving this dynasty man. The presentation is delightful! Makes me really excited about NST for 2k13 too! Any idea on when REDitor for 2k13 will be ready to go Leftos?

Jennings is playing really well. Looking to see Beal getting a bit more involved as the 6th man though (Y)

Reggie Williams was actually giving me a lot more punch off the bench, so I increased his minutes in the last game. Williams got injured in that game though, so Beal's gonna have to step it up.

Result:

It was a bricklaying contest tonight at KeyArena with both teams failing to find the bucket with any real rhythm.
Bradley Beal had his first game of real impact as a SuperSonic, coming off the bench and providing the hot hand that the team needed to seal the victory.

On a bad night, Jennings has 19 and 7 with .46 from the floor. Yeah... about that... :P

But I can see what you're saying. Quick look at the Box Score, .395 for the Sonics and .269 (!!!) from the Cavaliers, adding to 20 turnovers from each team? Can't have been a very fun game.

Yeah, it was definitely a game that the Cavs lost, rather than we won.

Jennings definitely pulled our side through, and the bigs thrashed the boards... but that didn't translate into points as much as I'd like! Super sloppy game.

Stress Fracture, I'm rooting for the Rockets as well as I was playing them the previous season for the first couple months. They were doing really well then so I'm not sure what's up. I think they made the 8th seed in the west last season, so it's early days and I'm sure they'll see wins soon.

I'm going to take a closer look at each of the teams over the course of the first month to make sure the rosters aren't too wacky, they might be missing some pieces depending on what the AI has done.

I'm still not decided if I'll play with trades on or not. At the moment I'm leaving them on, but I will veto most of the terrible trades & occasionally make trades for other teams if I think it's necessary or makes a good story.

Oh, and we played the Pelicans in the first game of the season, but I didn't take a very clear screen of their uniforms. I made them based on a combination of the released logos & colours and Chris Giorgio's rename & redesign contest entry. Unfortunately the detail of the main logo on the jersey didn't survive compression very elegantly, and has some ugly artefacts. I'll get a better shot next time we meet up.

If anyone is interested in using either of these uniforms I'll release them. Bear in mind they are for 2k12. Not sure if compatible with 2k13.

November 10 - Bucks, Sonics make Trade

76ers receive: Brandon Bass

Projected starting line-ups:
Celtics: Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, Paul Pierce (injured), Jeff Green, Kevin Garnett

76ers: Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Dorell Wright (injured), Brandon Bass, Andrew Bynum


Bucks receive: Aaron Brooks, Jimmer Fredette

Projected starting line-ups:
Bucks: Nate Robinson (Injured), Monta Ellis, Tobias Harris, Ersan Ilyasova, Larry Sanders

SuperSonics: Brandon Jennings, Trevor Ariza, Tyreke Evans, Thomas Robinson, Tiago Splitter


SuperSonics move Aaron Brooks, Jimmer Fredette; receive John Henson

November 10, 2013

Image Image


    Milwaukee fans might have a grudge against the new Seattle SuperSonics for snapping up Brandon Jennings in free agency last off-season, and may be lamenting what they could have received on the trade block if the organisation was intent on letting him go. There is clearly no such ill-will between the Bucks and Sonics organisations, however, as they both look to improve following a trade deal that sends Aaron Brooks and Jimmer Fredette to Milwaukee in exchange for 2nd team All-Rookie John Henson.

    John Henson has recently been struggling coming off the bench in Milwaukee, and with the power forward position loaded with promising players in Ersan Ilyasova, 4th pick Sam Keller, and Mbah a Moute, there had been rumours that one of the four would be traded to partly solve the gaping hole left by Jenning's departure. They picked up Nate Robinson in the Off-Season, but now that he's temporarily out with a dislocated finger the team has sped up its plans to procure some talent at the point.

    Meanwhile, 2010 most improved player Aaron Brooks and 2011 10th pick Jimmer Fredette clearly haven't been a part of the Sonic's plans; neither of the players have seen court time since the start of the season.

    Kings and Seattle fans may be upset to receive a single young player in return for their previously starting point guard and prospect, and Bucks fans are divided over losing one of their most promising players in order to balance their roster.

Which part? I'm mostly just using open office calc and making spreadsheets. Actually, I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it (I'm new to it, isn't geared towards presentation). I get what data I can from Leftos' stat tracker so that once I've made the spreadsheets it's just a matter of taking screenshots and cropping... I'll admit, it's still taking me ages though. :( The whole season will be tough at this rate, but I'm hoping each update will be easier than the last once the process is all in place and I don't have to make any new tables.

Game 6: Seattle SuperSonics @ Portland Trail Blazers

November 11, 2013



Seattle SuperSonics
Image
5-0

Image Image Image Image Image
Brandon Jennings | Trevor Ariza | Tyreke Evans | Thomas Robinson | Tiago Splitter
Portland Trail Blazers
Image
3-1

Image Image Image Image Image
Sebastian Telfair | Nicolas Batum | Danilo Gallinari | Lamarcus Aldridge | J.J. Hickson


Result:
Image
Sebastian Telfair returns to where he began his NBA career.
Neither team was able to protect the ball in a sloppy game, but a clinical performance by Telfair directed the Trail Blazers towards a comfortable victory. He shot 5-5 from both the field and long range.
Damian Lillard is currently injured with a strained quad, and the team--lacking a real backup point guard heading into the season--signed Telfair in free agency.

Bucks don't seem to be good either from outside, nor in drawing fouls inside. Shouldn't be too hard for you to go up against them. Do they really have no proper Center? Is Drew Gooden the best they have? His numbers are terrible. Or is there a major injury?

Yeah, just noticed the 24 and 26 turnovers. What the hell was going on there? And it's not like the teams were stealing the ball from each other (11 steals each) which would at least make it slightly exciting, it seems most of them were silly mistakes.

I saw this earlier and I've updated the stats/tendencies of their players to match their recent performances (Sanders need a heavy boost to his blocking stat). I think the real problem is small sample size, though. Drew Gooden has actually been a monster for them off the bench looking at his numbers, but he's only playing 8 or so minutes per game. They have a decent line up at C, with Sanders and 4th pick Keller, then Gooden and Udoh on the bench. Udoh seems pissed now that he's got a reduced role. They've been giving Keller a starting position at C for the first 5 games, but expect Sanders to take up the starting role again and Keller to move to sixth man.

I thought our last game was terrible (we were lucky, really), but this game was worse! If this keeps going it's not gonna look pretty.

I wish I could say, but I'm worried this is a quirk of hoopcast/the simulation engine. Just can't get turnovers right! When I play games CPUvsCPU coaching I couldn't get the TOs high enough, usually 4-5 per team each game, but now they're too high! The league average for turnovers is 16.1, and ranges from 12.8 to 19 (we're 16.2). The actual NBA ranges from 11.5 to 16.4. I'll see if there are any sliders I can adjust, and if worst comes to worst, I'll have a wider look at how the ball security stat correlates to turnovers in the sim engine. Edit : ok, some quick research and sliders don't change the sim engine, will investigate further.

Postby Pitar on Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:33 pm

I did some really basic testing (with probably way-too-small sample sizes) and found that the biggest factor in team turnovers was offensive awareness, followed by passing. ball security had an effect as well. offhand dribbling & hands didn't have any effect as far as I could tell, but it could have been minute and I didn't have enough samples to detect it. The turnover totals were definitely too high across the board, and I made some rough mass-edits to my roster. In sims I got the team turnovers down to about 13-17 pg from 14.6-18.9. APG & PPG were universally a bit low as well, so it remedied that problem at the same time. Adjusting the stats any more would tip the balance too much and not have enough variety between players. Hopefully it works!

Pitar, contact slimm44 about things like that. AFAIK, he has studied the game unbelievably extensively, and knows pretty much everything when it comes to what factors into what in simulation and gameplay stats.

Game 7: Seattle SuperSonics @ Milwaukee Bucks

November 12, 2013



Seattle SuperSonics
Image
5-1

Image Image Image Image Image
Brandon Jennings | Trevor Ariza | Tyreke Evans | Thomas Robinson | Tiago Splitter
Milwaukee Bucks
Image
1-4

Image Image Image Image Image
Aaron Brooks | Monta Ellis | Tobias Harris | Ersan Ilyasova | Larry Sanders


Result:
Image
It was a showdown of familiar faces tonight in Milwaukee. Previous back-court team members Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings went head-to-head, while recently traded Aaron Brooks started for the Bucks.
Jennings put up 25 points and 4 boards, while Ellis scored 15 points on 54% shooting; both players made 7 dimes and 2 steals.
The crowds' reception of the reunion quickly turned sour as the game developed into a blow-out, and the Bucks' bench didn't let up. Chuck Hayes had a spectacular 13 minutes on the court, shooting 5-6 and bringing down 9 boards.

I didn't want to squeeze any more information under the picture, but I'd just like to point my finger towards Splitter's 7 offensive boards and, well, Robinson did a bit of everything. :cool:

Game 8: Seattle SuperSonics @ Dallas Mavericks

November 14, 2013



Seattle SuperSonics
Image
6-1

Image Image Image Image Image
Brandon Jennings | Trevor Ariza | Tyreke Evans | John Henson | Thomas Robinson
Dallas Mavericks
Image
4-2

Image Image Image Image Image
Darren Collison | O.J. Mayo | Sonny Weems | Dirk Nowitzki | Greg Oden


Result:

Mavericks control second half, secure win; Greg Oden out with back injury

Image
Injury-plagued Greg Oden left today's game early with a back injury that may take him off the court for an estimated 2 months. The Mavericks have been cautious with Oden, only playing him for about 24 minutes per game. Oden has been rebounding at the fastest rate in the league so far (15.4 REB per 36 minutes), and the Mavericks have looked like a contention team with him on the court.

The SuperSonics also have front court injury woes. Both Tiago Splitter and 6th pick Jason Ford are both injured, and out for approximately 2 weeks. Tonight they played Robinson at centre, while recently traded John Henson started at power forward. Henson had a superb starting debut despite the team's loss, putting up a double-double with 14 points, 14 rebounds.

Game Notes: Brandon Jennings' 6 steals breaks his previous single-game record.

That was an unexpected production form Roddy IMO. Tough loss, and it really show the impact Tiago has on the Sonics.

Just from the Matchup preview of the Mavs game, I was SURE it was going to be a good one. You were evenly matched in your best aspects, but losing Splitter obviously cost you the win.

Time to bounce back against the below-par Magic. It's obvious you can foul them as much as you'd like, just be wary of their blocking. Nicholson at Forward seems like a pretty big defensive threat.

Game 9: Orlando Magic @ Seattle SuperSonic

November 16, 2013



Orlando Magic
Image
1-5

Image Image Image Image Image
Jameer Nelson | Arron Afflalo | Tony Mitchell | Andrew Nicholson | Nikola Vucevic
Seattle SuperSonics
Image
6-2

Image Image Image Image Image
Brandon Jennings | Trevor Ariza | Tyreke Evans | John Henson | Thomas Robinson


Result:

SuperSonics snatch another win at home over Magic

Image
Tyreke Evans intercepts the inbound pass to Jameer Nelson.

One of the most surprising stories of the beginning of the season is the SuperSonics. They're 7-2, 3rd in the western conference, and after tonight, 5-0 while playing at KeyArena.
Tyreke Evans was the key to their victory tonight, and has been a reliable 3rd scoring option for the SuperSonics and their early success.
His statistics have taken a dip across the board this season, however, and will Evans be content with his reduced role?

I can't imagine this story will be pleasant reading for Kings fans, seeing their team blown up and moved to Seattle. The Bucks should make good use of Jimmer though, he should do well!

Detroit's first in the Eastern Conference? WOO FUCKING HOO! Can't wait to see you go up against them! And I'd love a Scouting Report on them and one or more of their best players when you get to that point.

Just you wait until Drummond returns. By the way, how prophetic was the 4-6 weeks injury with "Broken Back" compared to his real 4-6 weeks injury because of "Fractured Tailbone"? Spooky stuff!

I don't think Miami will let that stand for much longer!

I'll quickly screen-cap a scouting report after I finish up the weekly recap. If anyone wants details on any of the other teams just let me know and I'll do the same for them.

DETROIT PISTONS - SCOUTING REPORT

Team Roster

PG: Brandon Knight, Rodney Stuckey
SG: Landry Fields, Kim English
SF: Andre Iguodala, Otto Porter, Khris Middleton, Kurt Kirkland
PF: Charlie Villanueva, Jonas Jerebko
C: Greg Monroe, Andrea Bargnani, Vyacheslav Kravtsov, Andre Drummond

===================================================

Pistons, the 4th strongest team in the league right now, after having played 8 games. Their record is currently at 6-2, putting them at #1 in their division and at #1 in their conference.

Although an average offensive team (they can't seem to remain consistent from both inside and outside the arc), they can get back at you with their efficiency from the line.

Scoring is not their virtue, but they're not that bad either. (#11 in FG%: 0.460 - #15 in FGeff: 16.09)
Not much to say about their 3pt shooting. Average, but it is there. (#16 in 3P%: 0.331 - #13 in 3Peff: 2.11)
They tend to attack the lanes hard, getting to the line and making the most of it. They're one of the best teams in the league at it. (#13 in FT%: 0.775 - #4 in FTeff: 18.70)
A team that seems to have some selfish players around, nobody really that efficient to carry the team into high percentages. (#16 in APG: 19.9)

Don't expect to get your score high against them. An elite defensive team, top 5 in points against them each night. (#5 in PAPG: 91.3)

They crash the boards as much as the next guy, but they won't give up any freebies. (#13 in RPG: 45.8, #21 in ORPG: 10.8, #10 in DRPG: 35.0)

Be careful dribbling and passing. They won't be much trouble once you shoot the ball, but the trouble is getting there. Great in steals. (#7 in SPG: 7.6, #26 in BPG: 3.3)
Not good ball handlers, and that's being polite. Bottom 10 in turnovers, they have work to do until they get their offense going. (#25 in TPG: 14.1, #19 in FPG: 17.9)

In summary, their best areas are free throws (#4, 24.1 per game on 0.775), points allowed per game (#5, 91.3), scoring (#7, 100.5), steals (#7, 7.6), defensive rebounds (#10, 35.0).

Thanks for the detailed scouting report; gotta love NST for picking the most important aspects of a team or a player and presenting it so nicely instead of having to go through all those numbers yourself! (<-- Shameless self-promotion there)

So the Pistons are good defensively, and Monroe is putting up great numbers. That's a nice recipe, but it won't hold them at the top of the conference for long, so you might be right. Small sample for now. Let's see how long this lasts for them, and what Drummond's like after his injury; can't expect the Pistons to remain so low in the blocks per game department after he returns.

How far ahead is your first encounter against Detroit? God I wish I could watch that game live! :P

Which part? I'm mostly just using open office calc and making spreadsheets. Actually, I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it (I'm new to it, isn't geared towards presentation). I get what data I can from Leftos' stat tracker so that once I've made the spreadsheets it's just a matter of taking screenshots and cropping... I'll admit, it's still taking me ages though. :( The whole season will be tough at this rate, but I'm hoping each update will be easier than the last once the process is all in place and I don't have to make any new tables.



Cheers, the the whole thing works great imo very well put together.

Actually, Pitar, at some point you might want to share your spreadsheet for others to use as a template or a starting point to create their own.
