Some week ago I've finished my Raptors association, and started Bobcats one. Im thinking how would my next season roster should look. Im about to draft Noel, get Iggy&Hickson from the free agency, and make the starting five look something like that:

PG: Walker
SG: Iguodala
SF: Kidd-Gilchrist
PF: Hickson
C: Noel

On the bench, I could have Ross/Ray Ray, Tyrus T, Sessions etc. What do you think guys? Would such team could make the playoffs?

I started a new association where I just simulate games and manage the team. I used the Timberwolves and our first season was very bad which in turn gave me good draft picks. Basically I just built my team through the first two drafts where I acquired Shabazz Muhammad, Nerlens Noel, and Andrew Wiggins. I also got Westbrook through free agency. After getting some reward points, I increased their potential along with Kevin Love, and after a few seasons I had a starting lineup with all 90s. XD First time I had a roster this good in association. In others I would usually just get 2 or 3 max 90 overall players so I'm really happy with this one.

I'm playing with the Nuggets. I simulated the whole season, made no trades, now I play the playoffs, we're the third seed, and we are playing against the Grizzlies. We won the first two games quite easily, by 15 point difference I think (playing on Superstar) but the second game, we were losing 10 points, we came back, and then Conley hits a three pointer 3 seconds 'til the end and we lost 92-95, but then we played Game 4, and we pretty much had the lead from start to end, and we won 100-92, Game 5 is still to be played..

Injuries : Kenneth Faried, 1 month, too bad :(

Playoff player stats:
Iggy 20p 4reb 6ast
Lawson 19p 5reb 8ast
Gallo 14p 7reb 3ast
Chandler 9p 11reb 2ast

Ok, as you guys can see, I'm back to the beginning. All my 2k files are in the trash... gone, and I need to install everything again. So I'm down with a couple of teams:

- Brooklyn
- Denver
- Golden State
- Toronto

Hopefully I can share something decent. :)

finally started an Association I plan on playing for fun that uses the NST. Did a fantasy draft with my All Pro Basketball Division 3 rosters (so bench and role players at best, from current and classic players) and completely fucked up not getting a player who can pass. I went tall though, very tall.

  1. 5'11" Eugene Jeter PG
  2. 6'6" Alexey Shved SG
  3. 6'5" Derek Anderson SG
  4. 6'11" DeAndre Jordan C
  5. 7'1" Tyson Chandler C
  6. 7'6" Shawn Bradley C
  7. 6'3" Darwin Cook PG
  8. 6'4" Travis Leslie SG
  9. 6'10" Vladimir Radmanovic PF
  10. 7'3" Hasheem Thabeet C
  11. 6'5" Robert Vaden SG
  12. 6'5" Terrico White SG

I've only played 1 game so far, but just <3 to Leftos again and again for NST, with scouting and such, it makes it so much more enjoyable.



I'll let NST explain the rage quit.
Montréal, the 30th strongest team in the league right now, after having played 6 games. Their record is currently at 0-6, putting them at #4 in their division and at #14 in their conference.

Average offensive team. Not really efficient in anything they do when they bring the ball down the court.

You'll have to worry about their scoring efficiency, as they're in the top third of the league. (#14 in FG%: 0.457 - #10 in FGeff: 5.25)
Not much to say about their 3pt shooting. Average, but it is there. (#21 in 3P%: 0.233 - #20 in 3Peff: 0.27)
A team that doesn't know how to get to the line, or how to score from there. You don't have to worry about freebies against them. (#23 in FT%: 0.643 - #28 in FTeff: 0.96)
They know how to find the open man, and they get their offense going by getting it around the perimeter until a clean shot is there. (#2 in APG: 8.2)

This team has just forgotten what defense is. They're one of the 10 easiest teams to score against. (#29 in PAPG: 35.0)

Second chance points? One of their biggest fears. Low low LOW rebounding numbers; just jump for the ball and you'll keep your score high. (#30 in RPG: 10.7, #25 in ORPG: 2.3, #27 in DRPG: 8.3)

A team that knows how to play defense. They're one of the best in steals and blocks, and they make you work hard on offense. (#9 in SPG: 2.2, #8 in BPG: 1.5)
Not good ball handlers, and that's being polite. Bottom 10 in turnovers, they have work to do until they get their offense going. (#29 in TPG: 5.8, #12 in FPG: 3.7)

In summary, their best areas are assists (#2, 8.2), blocks (#8, 1.5), steals (#9, 2.2), field goals (#10, 11.5 per game on 0.457), fouls (#12, 3.7).

Blame Canada. Not having any passers killed me. Not having any mid-range scorers or outside threats killed me. Not having interior offense anything killed me. Lobs to Jordan and Chandler made up so little of my points, it was just bad.

Lessons learned, but it was fun still.

Yeah, you have to life with the fact that not everybody is commenting. I'm also a big fan of the opinion of other's come trades or other decision, even be it game discussions like sliders etc. But in the end not everybody has the time to reply and might just read your stuff quickly.

And it is definitely proven that you get more replies the longer your story runs as it gets more appealing to people then.

I'm hoping to start one for NBA 2K14 and NBA Live 14. I am planning if everything panned out to get an XBOX ONE so I can do the NBA Live 14. I want to be able to provide highlights if possible. My goal is this see list below

1) NBA 2K14- either XBOX 360 or XBOX One- I will probably more than likely pick Orlando Magic because I want to see how I can do with Nikola Vucevic, Tobias Harris, Maurice Harkless, victor oladipo. I will probably package Glen Davis, and Hedo Turkoglu to maybe try and get Derrick Favors from Utah. I want to have a very young starting four out of five of Vucevic, Favors, Harris, Oladipo and Nelson. I admit my goal the first season or two is to stink it up enough to land a top five pick. I am looking to draft a point guard or maybe an amazing power forward if the draft is strong enough. If i can't draft a point guard I will try to get one in free agency. I want to see if I can improve Tobias Harris, Victor Oladipo, Nikola Vucevic and Derrick Favors. I'm also hoping to get Hedo turkoglu and Jameer Nelson's contract off the books. I might go with Derrick Williams of Minnesota to give him a chance. I'd like to get Kendall Marshall from the Suns and give him a shot. I admit sometimes the first season or two I do try to tank just so I can get a top five player to build around. I do have a solid young team with Tobias Harris, Victor Oladipo, Nikola Vucevic. I feel like the Bulls when they had Hinrich, Gordon and Deng all trying to develop. I may also possibly try to get a point guard in the draft and go for a veteran power forward in free agency. I don't mind having one or two veterans on my team though. I may even go for Drew Gooden the first season in free agency to add some more depth to the power forward/center position


2) NBA Live14- Since I'm going eastern conference on NBA 2K14 I'm going to go western on this game. I'm more than likely am leaning towards either the New Orleans Pelicans or the Utah Jazz. the Pelicans are intriguing to me because of building around Anthony Davis and having players like Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday. I may though consider trading injury prone Eric Gordon for a center. If i don't trade Eric Gordon I may just keep him and use Austin Rivers as my sixth man or go after a free agent. I'd like to get a decent backup point guard to Jrue Holiday. If I could get Nerlens Noel from Philly then I would have a block party of Noel and Davis which would be fun to watch on defense. Offensively though it could be a nightmare which is why I'm looking to improve anthony davis on the offensive end. Another thought if to possibly trade Eric Gordon for Spencer Hawes and a first rounder. Don't know if I can get the first rounder or not. Spencer Hawes I feel could provide me some scoring at the center position. I want to have Tyreke Evans playing the shooting guard and start Al- Farouq Aminu or even give Darius Miller a shot. If I have enough cap I want to try and go for either Lebron James or Carmelo Anthony.


So what do you think?

I'm always coming back :D

Started one with the Bulls, all simulated, and ended up with Rose, J.R. Smith, Gallinari, Faried and Noah. If I remember correctly the deal was Gallinari and Faried for Deng (morale at 25 and expiring), Young (a first round pick), a first round pick and a second round pick. Then Gibson wanted to be traded so I dealt him to Detroit, along with CJ Wilcox (a second round pick) for Earl. Plus Hinrich staying and the signings of Maggette (a personal fav) and Turiaf. 51-31, 51-31 and 54-28 in the first three years but never past of the Conference Finals.

It's either Bulls or Lakers for 2K14.

Started an Online Association a while back w/ the Suns. Forgot about it for like a week. :x Came back and I was 3-12 lol. So decided to just completely rebuild. Started trading everyone w/ high salaries basically trying to just clear cap space and get picks. But that turned into more trading for players as well. 1st trade for Markieff Morris and a 2nd for Jazz's 1st. Then Bledsoe to the Pelicans for Aminu and a 1st. Gortat and Beasley went to the Raptors for Rudy Gay and a 1st. And lastly, Dragic, Frye and Butler went to the Hawks for Millsap and Teague. So lineup will be Teague, Shannon Brown, Gay, Millsap and I'll have to give Len a shot until next season I guess. :\ While the 'clear cap space' objective was definitely failed with the Millsap and Gay trades, at least the money is going to players who are worth it now. lol. I plan on drafting a SG with my (hopefully) 1st overall pick. lol. And maybe I'll have the cap space to get Gortat again or some other free agent Center. 4-17(of 29 games) atm lol.

Started an association on nba 2k14, with Pelicans (other choices were Cavs or Phila), but Pelicans had least players I dont like. Using JMoney superstar sliders and playing 12min quarters.

11 games in the season and Pelicans are something of a surprise team so far. To be honest the schedule was very easy. Record is 8-3.

Made couple of trades before the season. As I do not really know how to use Eric Gordon (undersized with odd shot release) and R.Anderson (too slow) and L.Tomas. Placed them on trade finder and got an offer from Grizzlies, Zach Randolph and M.Miller, so accepted it.

Roster for now, not sure if make more trades, probably will try to unload one of the C's for a PF.

PG J. Holiday
SG T. Evans
SF A. Aminu
PF Z.Randolph
C. A. Davis

Bench

PF E. Davis
PG A.Rivers
SF D.Miller
C G.Stiemsma
C J.Whitey
SG A. Morrow
SG Franklin

IR

B.Roberts

Made another trade J.SMith, M. Miller + 15 1st round pick for E.Davis and Franklin from Grizzlies.

So far 9-4 record.

Started a Defensive Center MyCareer. Timberwolves drafted me 9th overall. Somehow making it to the finals despite simming everything but key games. lol. Barely made it in to the playoffs at the 8th seed. Beat the Warriors, which we really shouldn't have, in 6. Then the Trailblazers again in 6 which is more believable. Then just swept the (Harden-less) Rockets in 4. This was my proudest moment in game 4.
phpBB [video]


lol. Howard was pretty much owned completely in game 4. He scored 10 points with 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal and +/- of -11. I scored a career-high 21 points, 12 rebounds(7 offensive amazingly), 1 assist, 1 block and a +/- of 20.

Edit: Lost 4-1 to the Nets :\ Not surprising though. Even without Harden, I shouldn't have beaten the Rockets or even the Warriors but I'll take it. :p

I have started new Association mode with Utah Jazz using UBR v6 Roster as a base. It will be a video story, so I recommend anyone interested in subscribing (not that it matters :lol: ).

I should be uploading at least 1-2 episodes per day. I am doing full games. Yes, full games. Not hot moments or highlights, full games only. Why? Because it helps me out too to see where I make bad moves and such. It really helps to become better player, even if it's dull to watch ;).

Inspired by Portland's sorry play as of late, I started a Blazers association recently, intervening to stop this ship from sinking completely. Right now I sit at 49-27, riding a three game winning streak and heading into a match with Phoenix which would lock up a playoff spot. Looking forward to the off season as I have a real draft class.

I'm currently playing Miami Heat and the team is currently in the year 2039. The Heat was successful between the year 2014-2015 when winning the three-peat and then winning another Championship. In 2016, things went sour, when Ray Allen was shifted to the 76ers and Chris Bosh was carted to Memphis. They made the final the same year but Wade and James were injured so Anderson and Haslem had to lift the team, but they were swept clean in the series by Toronto. James retired the following year and the Heat made the playoffs again but failed dramatically in the Conference Finals. Wade decided to retire in 2018 and the Miami Heat were in the rebuilding stage again. They made the playoffs again but got knocked out in the Semi Finals. From then Michael Carter Williams came to Miami and tried to lift the new Miami Heat but failed after the coach Eric Spolestra left in 2019. From then they failed to make the playoffs. New rookies came to the heat followed by a gun forward Kurt Patterson in 2024. New Miami Heat coach was appointed, Larry Drue was now coaching the heat. The Miami Heat failed to get to the playoffs from 2019-2029, but things changed in 2030 when they finally made a playoff appearance but got knocked out in the first round by Detroit. The following year they made it to the playoffs again but then got knocked out in the first round. The team was rebuilding again but the new team was soon going to be better and win championships once again. Miami failed to make it to the playoffs in 2032-2034. They had a fantastic season winning 67 games in the regular season and then made it to the finals stretching the Memphis Grizzlies to game 7 and winning the championship. The following year, they were 1st seed and went back to back. Could they three-peat, yes they could. With a close to average record, Miami Heat were 7th seed in the playoffs but destroyed the New Orleans Pelicans 4-0 in the finals. In 2038, the season I have just finished they won another Championship, the teams fourth straight. Currently playing 2039 and the heat aren't doing to great.

I've gotta say, current-gen 2k14 is not very polished. No matter how high Joel Embiid is rated, team need always pushes him into the late first round / early second which sort of kills the immersion for a nerd like me. Maybe generic draftees are the way to go but I've been so spoiled by the last few 2k's having remotely competent draft logic.

So I've kind of shelved my association and decided to give myCareer a try. Ended up getting drafted by Bucks after my 25/1/2/6 to performance and was projected to get 12 MPG, being the third highest rated point guard. I play the season opener which immediately becomes a blowout loss, and after coming in midway through the first quarter, coach never takes me out and I play 41 very dull minutes. Lame. (N)

Then there's myTeam which is fun but I wasted all my VC on making my player rate @ 66 overall so I'm stuck with Beno Udrih and Copeland as my best players.

:boohoo: I know but five months later I still have buyer's remorse.

I'm glad I didn't buy, I was underwhelmed by releases after 2K11. Tempted to play 2K11 again, even though it's obviously unpolished. Either that or try 2K13.

2K13 is the best one since 2K11. I liked it a lot. There are current rosters available but you might need to use a USB to get them. My only problem with the game is that they took down the cloud servers but the game will always spend thirty seconds trying to save to them anyway.

Ok so, I'm coming back to do a Clippers association, for those that remember me from around 2 years ago. I've been busy with my first year of law school (finished) and was busy the year prior to that unfortunately.

Here is the basic layout of what my news articles will be, any help in making it better? for example, the side bar where recent played games could be in a different colour along with the news article title etc?

Have not started it yet, the games against the celtics and raptors were just placeholders.

Decided to give myCareer another shot (mostly for achievements) and now I'm enjoying it. Turns out the minutes glitch was a one time thing and I've been developing as a sixth man. On the Bucks and basically my dude is Jimmer playing for a team dumb enough to play him, with 75% of my points coming off long threes. Needless to say I'm among the league leaders in PER and TS%.

Playing only key games, my Bucks are 34-41 and tied with Atlanta for 8th, coming off a loss in Miami which was pretty much all my fault. With averages of 16/2/3, I'm likely to win 6MotY but not RotY. Here's hoping my 70 ovr 3pt specialist can bring home some hardware and lead the Bucks to that coveted 8 seed!

Nowadays I enjoy to set up a franchise with Golden State Warriors at my favorite game, NBA Live 2003.

At each season's start, Warriors has always the first match and can reach the whole free agents list. Usually, star players are signed with minimum contract instead of signing large contracts at free agency. So you can sign Kevin Garnett, Steve Francis, Grant Hill, Jamal Mashburn and Jerry Stackhouse at one season (all these guys are +87 rating at NBA Live 2003, these guys were fine ballers back then).

Well, after my myCareer got corrupted or something, I started an association for fun with 3 minute quarters and 29 game seasons with the 76ers. They were fun to rebuild, and after a 7-22 first season, I went 23-6 in tthe next, sweeping the end of season awards and winning the championship behind Michael Carter-Williams.

MCW, Lance Stephenson, Gerald Green, Myles Turner and Nerlens Noel was my starting five with Hawes, Pierre Jackson, Kelly Oubre, Wroten and Ray Allen among my key reserves.

The Sim engine fared better than expected, 2014-15 champions Denver and 2016 all-star Jonny Flynn aside. I might sim out my Sonics aassociation, but other than that, I think it's time to say goodbye to this generation of sports gaming.

Started with the Pistons using the 2002/03 rosters. Traded guys like Hamilton and Prince for draft picks which was the only thing I wanted as it was the 2003 draft coming up and getting wins didn't really matter. Still, with 4 first round draft picks, I made it to the Playoffs, got to the second round. But the draft was more important, only had 1 lottery pick, #7 overall, so after a plethora of trades during the draft and some insanely bad draft logic by the CPU, this was what I ended up with :

Image

Starting line-up after the off-season :

C - Ben Wallace
PF - Chris Bosh
SF - Carmelo Anthony
SG - Dwyane Wade
PG - Gary Payton

LeBron went to the Bobcats, who were 0-82 in the first season, they had a roster full of 25 rated players for some reason. LeBron averaged 36.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists.

Lost in the Conference Finals, simulated all of it. The Grizzlies won the 'chip with Gasol, Miller and Jason Williams. (lol wtf) They beat the 76ers, who have both Iverson and Tracy McGrady.

Season 2 depth chart :

C - Ben Wallace (87) / Marcus Camby (75)
PF - Chris Bosh (86) / Aaron Williams (71) / Lee Nailon (66)
SF - Carmelo Anthony (89) / Courtney Alexander (74) / Dorell Wright (67)
SG - Dwyane Wade (87) / Kyle Korver (68)
PG - Gary Payton (80) / Damon Stoudamire (76)

Tim Duncan, Zach Randolph and Pau Gasol have all signed with the Jazz.

good to know something good happens to the bobcats, even though they were a team that didn't even exist in 2003 :lol: :lol: :lol:

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to find the best team to fit in with my athletic 6'2 PG.

Knicks are crappy with Sam replacing Tyson. Lakers, Nash got injured in just the 2nd game of the season (broken back). OKC, no great rebounders. Celtics, just....no. Blazers, seems okay. Dallas, looks good but Dirk shoots bad in this game.

Waiting til Christmas to get a PS4 and 2k15, and after getting seriously burnt out on 2K14, I promised myself that I would shelve it for good. However, with the NBA season starting up, I couldn't resist.

After winning the 15-16 championship with Philadelphia, I resigned my position and signed with Portland, unfortunately not being able to do it after the off-season. I inherited a roster actually rated higher than the championship Sixers, but coming off an 11-18 start. Lillard, McCollum, Batum, Aldridge and Miles Plumlee start, with Goran Dragic, Thomas Robinson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson among relevant reserves. I'd like to upgrade at the Center position, but the team is pretty solid.

Currently 2-0 (5-0 pro-rata) and considering turning up the difficulty and/or changing the sliders after blowing out the Thunder in OKC. Will probably sim some games to get through the year.

Perhaps it is time for a new thread for the next-generation?

Portland | 16-17 Season | 6 Minute Quarters | 29 Games | All-Star

So I traded Thomas Robinson, Meyers Leonard and Mo Williams to Indiana for Roy Hibbert and some scrub to make what I thought would be an unbeatable team that is clearly superior to my 76ers. However, the Sim engine (simming about half the games) has not been kind. To be fair, stupid mistakes and my inability to play defense have cost me winnable games vs. Memphis (who got Rudy Gay back but lost Marc and Z-Bo) and Boston (no Rondo).

8-9 but in the playoff picture and LA and Dame both have a chance to start in the all-star game. Next game against the team I built Philly will be a big test and perhaps decide whether this is a lost season. Hollis-Jefferson is out for a few weeks, but my starting five of Lillard, Dragic, Batum, Aldridge and Hibbert is solid, and McCollum, D-Wright, Plumlee and Mullens should get it done...

Started MyLeague with Oklahoma City on NBA 2k15.

In first season only did one trade, traded "Big Perk" Perkins for Gortat as needed proper Center. This was, in fact, brilliant move :lol:.

Played Season 1 on Pro/Simulation, 29 games, best of 7 in playoffs, 6 min qtrs and in first 3 games of the season... I lost them all. Getting to grips with new gameplay was a bit of a mess at first, but then, came our first win ;).

I went on a run and in the Conference standings we came 2nd. Winning 20 losing 9.

In Play Offs there were AWESOME and I mean AWESOME games.

First on our way were Denver Nuggets, but we did witn 4-1.

In 2nd Rouind, we faced Memphis Grizzlies, but they were heavily injured, we won 4-0, advancing to our tree Finals.

There we faced the team, I lost to both times in Regular season. Trail Blazers.

My God that must have been the best 7 games I played. The series went to draw 3-3 and we had 7th game to decide it. We did win in the end by a buzzer beater from the one and only KD. Winning 4-3 and advancing to Championship Finals to face... Indiana Pacers (how did this go, check in video below).

The summary of first season is here:

phpBB [video]


Now I'm in Season 2, played 11 games. Did STUPID and I mean STUPID trade I thought it wouldn't go through :(. Switched to All-Star difficulty too as Pro was tad easy.

Lost Westbrook, got Rubio and some other dude (I can't remember the name now). Yeah, I said to myself: this will be a real test now without Westbrook points :lol:.

Traded Ibaka, Gortat (sorry, man!), and 2 prospects and got Drummond (BEAST!), Monroe (och yes :D), Derron Williams (old, but who cares, he still is one of best playmakers :P).

Surprised we are at the top of conference, being on 64% chemistry (at end of 1st season that was 89% fyi). Must say, that my rebounding totals went HELL up with Monroe/Drummond combo. Plus don't miss out on Westbrook, sure his points would be ace, but instead of points, now I have 2 most fun playmakers in NBA in same team. Rubio and Williams when they play together... They tear teams apart. Rubio alley-oops and behind, over, back passes are just a joy to look at. So smoooooth. Ach yeah, KD is still here and rolling over teams :lol:.

Got a PS4 for Christmas with the Gamestop bundle which gives you one of four free games, one of them being 2k15. Unfortunately, PSN has been down and will be for the near future. I got four other games, so not stressing that, but no myGM for Lamrock until (if?) Sony gets its get together.

Hello, I'm obviously a new member. I have been playing a lot of MyGM/MyLeague seasons on NBA 2k15 (I actually like them more than MyCareer/Parks). I have been successful with multiple franchises so far and I would probably like to start up a proper thread for one of my teams. I just can't think of which one, maybe you could help me out with a decision.

Thunder - Never had them in GM, would be an interesting first few seasons being one of the main contenders.
Pacers - Had them in MyGM once, enjoyed it a lot, but f'ed it up with making some stupid trades, that I couldn't revert on S3.
Heat - Would be an interesting rebuild process with DWade and B-Rex getting older.
Brooklyn - Nice mid-table team with some depth and talent.
Spurs - Top contender, with core getting older and young superstar developing.
Your suggestions?

Also I would like to point out, that I like to make trades only when players are unhappy with their role/playing time, or if I see an offer that is realistic and would benefit teams. Obviously trading untouchables is a no-no, unless there is a good reason in my "NBA-verse".

If anyone has any suggestions or opinions, please let me know! :bowdown2:

I was contemplating between Miami and Brooklyn, somehow I see Brooklyn as a more of a challenge, having a starting lineup that is quite old and other players that haven't developed much yet. But if I start with BKN I need to sign Ray-Ray from FA too, to have a decent output. Even in my NBA-verse it would make sense, as KG would approach Ray and ask him to join in for a contender run, for old times sake. :lol:
Miami is definitely somewhere on the top of my list, though.

Finally got 2K15 on Monday and I can't stop playing it. I get that same great feeling that I did making the jump from 2K6 on the original Xbox to 2K7 on the 360. Obviously the graphics are fantastic besides a few blemishes and I like the gameplay a lot - though I haven't found out how to do everything yet (I can't seem to get my players to cut). I've been waiting years for Simcast, and the roster, though not perfect, is much improved over past years. I miss the ability to jump into the current point of the season, but I'm looking forward to checking out myGM and myLeague more.

myCareer is what I've been hooked on lately though. I always forget how addictive this mode is. Got picked up by a 16-32 Magic team, and we've gone 9-2 since adding me to the team, hoping to make an unlikely playoff run. Despite my Assist/Turnover ratio of 1>, I got promoted to starter and look to continue to hit clutch threes.

I also gave myGM a shot, picking Minnesota because they suck. Got off to a real rough start with Pek, Rubio and Martin all out, but getting Pekovic back has given us some momentum. Ended up trading Bennett and Budinger to Boston for Gerald Wallace and their first rounder (complicated 8 player, makeshift 3 team deal with CLE) after Bennett compared my intelligence to that of a fetus... 8-16 rocking a starting five of Mo Williams, Wiggins, Shabazz, Thad Young and Pek with a solid bench of Dieng, Lavine, Gerald Wallace and Troy Daniels. Might actually be in danger of meeting the owner's 38 win goal if Rubio and Martin come back soon!

Ehhhh that always seems like a good idea when I'm on break from school but I simply won't have time for that starting next week. Will constrain my exploits to this thread for the time being. ;)

I like the idea of myGM a lot but I think myLeague is going to be the way to go. I don't like making five trades per season but the game seems to force my hand too often. I also don't really care about micromanaging non basketball stuff.

I haven't played with my retro Hornets association in a long time as I've built a team for fun and it's freaking awesome to play with.

Me and my cousin often pick two teams, start an association with either real rosters or a fantasy draft. This time we decided to do a fantasy draft and I didn't do that well. I got Kyle Lowry, Chris Bosh and Luol Deng as my 3 main guys. First season wasn't that spectacular. But one thing we do is stockpile draft picks and I had plenty of first round picks to draft guys.

I can't remember all the moves I made, but I picked Jahlil Okafor in the 2015 draft, traded Lowry for Marcus Smart (cap space) and then swapped Okafor and fillers for Anthony Davis. (cpu offered the deal)

I had loads of picks so I drafted Jaylen Brown (Draftexpress #1 prospect) in 2016. Also got Cheick Diallo (#4) and Malik Newman (#5). Won the title the next two years with them, kept most of the squad (all simulated).

Now, in season 2018-19, I finally decided to play with this squad and I just love it.

My line-up is like this :

C - Anthony Davis (94)
F - Nerlens Noel (85)
F - Jaylen Brown (88) - Just a beast. He has the lockdown defender skill, also a 85 three-pointer and a 95 dunk. Similar to Paul George.
G - Malik Newman (83) - Great shooter, also a freak athlete.
G - Marcus Smart (80)
------------------
6 - Stanley Johnson (84) - Lockdown defender, posterizer. Quick and a great cross-over for a SF. Needs work on his jumpshot. Traded for him, gave up a PF I had drafted who didn't really do much for me.
7 - Cheick Diallo (82) - Kenneth Faried copy. Gets to all the loose balls, dunks everything he can.
8 - Brandon Jennings (82)
9 - Chris Bosh (77)
10 - Thabo Sefolosha (65)
11 - Zaza Pachulia (62)
12 - Dorell Wright (61)

I like athletic players and basically that's what I've built. After simulating the first two games of the season, Brown had scored 12 points combined. I've played 10 games now, hall of fame and won all of them. Brown's scoring numbers - 42, 46, 35, 44, 39, 35, 29, 51, 33, 42. He's also a good rebounder and passer, a triple-double threat every night though I have yet to get one. Came within 1 rebound once. Standing at 11-1 now after beating OKC in overtime (they have Durant, Steph Curry, Brook Lopez and Afflalo, 2nd in the West.)

During the winning streak, Brown's averaged 39.6 pooints, 6.6 rebounds and 7.6 assists.

The team my cousin has built isn't bad either -

C - Ibaka (85)
F - Mirotic (85)
F - Ben Simmons (86)
G - J Butler (85)
G - Rose (91)
-----------
Mudiay (88)
Shumpert (81)
Justise Winslow (79)
Harry Giles (80)

I'm really into this team so I might start a story with this team. The fantasy draft aspect means that no one plays for the team they do in real life. LeBron is in Clipperland, Carmelo's in Indiana, Paul George is in Brooklyn, Harden is in Atlanta. Kobe, Duncan, Pierce and Dirk have all retired.

Would you guys follow this?

Definitely prefer myLeague to myGM. Dealing with the owner and player egos are annoying and I like the options of myLeague. There are a couple things I don't like about both though. The menus are kind of confusing, though that might just be due to being new to it after nearly a decade of playing Association. I also think the social media stuff is kind of silly. (Yeah, I'm going to read all 2000 generic tweets that have been posted in the last month of the season) Sim stats are okay, but every star player puts up LeBron-type numbers. Finally, it's a bit too easy to unknowingly sim through games - I was 5-0, then accidentally simmed through a game vs. Dallas which I of course lost. Still, Simcast, while not perfect is the best feature they've added in years. Between that and Playstation Share, it'll be tempting to write a casual story some day.

So yeah, have been playing a casual myLeague with Portland - 29 games, 7-7-7-7 playoffs, 6 minute quarters. 7-1 right now and despite the quarter length, Lillard averages 25+ PPG. 2K never changes...

I've just started a new single season myleague with the Knicks using Embracethapace's off season roster.

Enjoying it a lot so far using the new players NY have gotten like RoLo, Double A and D-Will!

I may post it on here I haven't decided yet....

One to many failed attempts has gotten me questioning my commitment but I am enjoying playing the game never the less.

I always wait until after the trading deadline to start my (2K 16/PS3) Association. So far my Knicks are 11-3, coming off an 85-84 loss at Washington. Wall & Beal took advantage of NY's poor perimeter defense, scoring nearly half of the Wizards' points.
