Decided to switch games from nba live 07 to 06 and am liking it all over again.

I went with a cleveland cavalier dynasty and am planning on turning this franchise around, i'm really enjoying the reorder roster. I've been developing Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson. I'm working on his offensive skills to make his mid range and dunking abilities better.

I'm also working on Kyrie Irving's dunking ability so he can be the next Derrick Rose. I haven't checked out the draft yet to see how strong it is, but if its at least strong, then i'll probably draft a shooting guard with the first pick. Might, I might forfeit the second pick.

If Anthony Parker is a free agent, then i'll release him and go with a completely young team, this team is obviously in rebuilding mode, hopefully Gee can develop, but i think i'm going to have to train Omri Casspi more because his offensive skills are better.

I'm doing a boston celtic dynasty now and am planning on rebuilding the celtics, making them a younger team, we have a bunch of free agents the first year, so i'll only resign around 2 or 3 players that i need, including KG and Allen. I figure that the celtics need younger big, so with the first pick i drafted a power forward. Second pick will probably be a guard. Then in the offseason, i'll try to trade either Ray Allen or Kevin Garnett.

Made a 7'2", 350 lb center in myplayer. He's surprisingly fast and has a good vertical, idk why. It all comes so easy. idc if the skill points are harder to come by; you're dominant from the start

I think we would all love it if Tristan developed a mid-range game. That would add another dimension to his game that would make him so much better; he's already good now

^ I had a 7'5 center. It's too easy to dominate. I had 17 points and 22 rebounds in my first game despite being rated 42 overall. I fouled out in 20 minutes, but it didn't matter. :lol:

My Thunder, in 2035, have won 5 championships under the reign of GM Willie Lewis. Now up 2-0 on the #7 Seed Houston Rockets, they eye a sweep.

Starting 5 Breakdown

Chucky Wallace, 6'11, 241, NC State

Chucky is one of the best centers in the league. He averages about 10 points per game but is a force on the boards, averaging about 8 board a game. He's one of the rising stars in the NBA.

Perry Larson, 6'9, 254, Kansas State

One of the true stars in the NBA. After being a first overall pick in 2027, Perry has put this Thunder team on his back. With 18 points and 8 rebounds per game, he is a force.

Senso Salvaderi, 6'8, 220, Italy

A loyal and humble guy, Senso is one of the studs OKC drafted. As a 1st overall pick, Senso has showed Kevin Durant like skills, scoring 47 in a big game. He can be inconsistent however, and when he's cold... he's cold.

Michael Manning, 6'7, 223, Arizona State

Drafted 15 years ago, Michael is an old man. He was acquired in a draft day trade with the Cavaliers, and has been a big steal. He has been a leader on the court and off, and hit the game tying shot to force OT in the wild 18 point comeback vs the Rockets.

Billy Bennett, 6'3, 202, UTEP

The true leader of this team, a steal by OKC at 14 and a product of the Thunder System.He has averaged a constant 16 points per game and 7 assists, and has drawn comparisons to Russell Westbrook. He's turned 33 however, and the Thunder need to look for a replacement.

Thought i'd have some fun with a new dynasty, so, i've decided to do later on, is a fantasy draft. Guys from the same college, mostly Buckeyes and Gators on my team. So i'm going to try to draft players like Noah, conley Jr., Oden, Horford and others. It might be fun to do this and see how it turns out.

I'm still doing the same cavaliers dynasty along with other teams, even the heat. This is probably going to make some people angry or surprised, but i've decided to go in another direction with the heat franchise, and build my team around Lebron, and make this team, strickly his. So Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are now gone! In turn for their trades, i have gotten the following players.

Josh Smith (I got him for added defense)
Dorell Wright (Good midrange and three point shooting ratings and is coming off the bench behind Lebron James)
Javale Mcgee (Bocking rebounding and inside scoring plus the heat were lacking a good center who can score inside)
Anthony Parker (He's the starting shooting guard for my team but is a good midrange and three point shooter obviously there is a hole at the sg spot that we have to fill but for now it will be Parker's chance to shine)


Amazingly, with this lineup and with most of the big three gone, the miami heat are 52-30 and are in 5 place in the league! Right behind chicago who is also 52-30, so chicago and miami are the two best teams in the east right now, but boston is 51-31, so no doubt that will change for a while. I don't know how the draft is, i didn't scout or check to see how strong, weak or average the draft is, but we'll still draft a sg, if he's in the top 15 or 20 guards/sg's in the draft, i almost always pick the best player in the draft with my pick, no matter if we need the position he plays or not.

Started to a new association with the pistons and did the ff trade. In this i can build around the new generation of detroit's big three with knight, monroe and derozan but still with old school vets tayshaun at big ben!

Detroit gets:
Derozan, James johnson, A gray, 1st pick 2012

Toronto gets:
Stuckey, Jerebko, 1st pick 2013, Villanueva

Starters:
C - monroe
PF - maxiel
Sf- prince
Sg- derozan INJ
Pg- knight

Bench:
C- big ben
Pf- j johnson
Sf- daye
Sg-gordon (6th man)
Pg-bynum

Reserve: Wilkins, dowdell, Macklin, Gray, Q ross

so far got 4-0 with close wins vs bucks, rockets, clippers and nuggets.

1st win vs bucks - Derozan got hot in his debut as a piston, scoring 16 1st quarter points with us leading 34-30, he then got into foul trouble the rest of the game thus making the score close until the end of 3rd with us leading 62-61. But we managed to win it thanks to the consistency of Monroe and knight. Won - 94-89

2nd win vs rockets - another close game from start til finish and all tied up in the end of 3rd at 72. But thanks to the heroics of ben gordon, scoring 16 of his 18 pts in the 4th with 4 threes as we extended the lead and won eventually 104 97

3rd win vs clippers - see saw battle in the 1st half with tayshaun containing CP3. Unfortunately we could not stop Blake Griffin. We also lost Derozan to injury that will last 2-4weeks. Clips led as much as 8 pts in the 3rd. we manage to climb back and got the lead thanks to 6 straight points by knight. with us having a 3 pt lead at 89-86 in the final 2 mins, CP3 managed to hit a long three to tie it up. A ben gordon jumper took us back the lead with 91-89, then another jumper for Cp3 to tie it up at 17 secs to go. I tried to set a play for ben gordon for the last shot but surprisingly found an open lane. So Knight drived down the lane and was fouled with 2 secs. Scored both fts and we won 93-91!

4th win vs nuggets - Not much of a story but still a close one, ben gordon scored 26 pts with 6/11 3pt shots and Austin Daye added 13 pts 10 boards to get us another W with 89-85 win.

Stats so far:
Monroe 18.4 pts 8reb 1.5blks (dominant big man with A potential! still needs to improve his outside shot and post defense)
Derozan 16.8 pts 2.2 stls (fun to use in 2k with nice midrange)
Knight 15.2 pts 9.8asst 1.7stls (surprisingly good in 2k for me. I used to think this will be derozan's team, but I changed my mind. I like to build it around the 3 but Knight as the main one)
Gordon 14pts 41% 3pt (always loving to have a 3pt specialist on a team. Since I cant afford to bring Ray allen in detroit and to make the East more competitive, I have no regrets sticking with this lineup)

I started another dynasty, and went with the Lakers. We had a good season and finished almost 20 games above 500. But we got eliminated in the 1st round against portland, who went on to loose to miami in the nba finals. So, i had to make a few trades, there was no way we should have lost to portland.

In the offseason we aquired, Roy Hibbert, Ryan Anderson, Danny Granger, Hedo Turkoglu, and Kyle Korver. So, now we have plenty of three point shooters as starters, and two wingmen in Korver and Turkoglu coming off the bench as a shooting guard, and small forward, Korver will play the 2 guard off the bench.

Back up point guard will probably be Steve Blake. I hated trading Jordan Hill, but to be fair and salary reasons, i had to. Though i may try to trade for him, to get him back on the team, because i enjoyed training him. Josh McRoberts will be missed as well. We also have Ronny Turiaf as our back up center, and a cpu rookie named Patterson as the back up power forward, Patterson will trained hard, in all three attributes, offense, defense and atheletics, hopefully he'll be the next pau Gasol, but more atheletic.

Kobe Bryant didn't really have the type of small forward that i liked running the floor with him, so World Peace had to be traded. Hopefully, with all of this offense we now have, we will have better defense, we only have two players who can block shots, and probably just one player who can steal, so we'll probably won't be good defensively, but we did work on defense with both assistants in training camp, so we'll see.

Hadn't played 2K in like a month, so got back to it. Didn't want to play with my Heat, cause I have a game to recap and wouldn't want to get ahead too far.

Took 2K12 and the Bobcats. The rebuild was quite simple.

After 1 season and 8 games, my roster now looks like this :

Starters :

C - Samuel Dalembert (69)
F - Tyrus Thomas (78)
F - Danny Granger (80)
G - Eric Gordon (83)
G - Kyrie Irving (84)

Rotation :

6 - Gerald Henderson (71)
7 - Gerald Green (70)
8 - Brandon Haywood (63)
9 - Kirk Hinrich (69)

Rest :

10 - Chuck Hayes (65)
11 - Reggie Williams (68)
12 - Luke Walton (60)

SF CJ Miles
SG Ray allen (part of the trade with Millsap, Burks, Howard with Celtics)
PG Devin harris

Bench:
C Kanter
PF Lamar Odom (FA signed)
SF Hayward
SG Bell
PG Bradley (part of the trade with Millsap, Burks, Howard with Celtics)
PF Jajuan (part of the trade with Millsap, Burks, Howard with Celtics)

I also flirted to play an association with the Jazz. I like this team and it has some potential. You have some shooting power with Allen and still a big frontcourt with Favors, Jefferson, Kanter and Odom.

Can Kendall save the Suns?

Startet a new MyPlayer just for fun using NC PG Kendall Marshall as a template. I was drafted 13th overall by the Phoenix Suns, i could also go higher but i want the challenge to rebuild with the Suns when Nash leaves.

I know number 5 is retired on the Suns Roster, however i did not know any better jersey number for Kendall Marshall.

In my first Game against the Thunder i played 16 minutes scored 7 points and dished 8 assists. Marcin Gortat is a great fit for me, with my help he scored a career high of 44 points. :lol:
We beat the Thunder in overtime 111:110, i feel this is going to be a great season.

Hey guys, looking at starting an association soon. Going to keep a nice easy pace and not rush into it. Want to know what are the most up to date rosters for PC that I should use as well as the best draft class.

almost retired my association due to got a bit bored in 2k12. But I got back into it when I play against OKC. At first i was down by 18 in the first qtr with them leading 22-4. I almost sim the whole game and quit playing 2k, but somewhat I managed to get closer and trim the lead to 10 at halftime. they widen the gap again by 15 at 64-49 in the 3rd, until westbrook got into foul trouble and we managed to manhandled durant, thus get us back and tied them up at 72!

4th qtr was exciting and lots of deadlocks and lead changes. during the last 2 minutes, we led by 1 thanks to the put back by al jeff 88-87. Then suddenly durant got hot as he managed to make a jumper, a quick steal off an inbound and pull up a three! suddenly they led 92-88, we missed on the next possession and westbrook hit a jumper wth 42 secs and they led 94-88.

I almost gave up but thanks to the quick three by rayray, we closed the gap to 3 with 34 sec. they missed and we got the ball back and made a fastbreak with cj miles trimmed it to one with 15 sec, 93-94! :) Then durant lost the ball we managed to get the final shot with Favors scoring a putback with 1.1 sec to go :) we won the game 95-94 that brought myself back into 2k12. :) Favors led with 24pts 9reb and 4blks while durant scored 28pts for OKC.

Another move i made is I traded Odom (i dont know how to use him in 2k, it seems Jajuan is better than him) and 2013 utah 1st pick, 2012 utah 2nd pick for Kings 2012 1st pick, as I took advantage on the Kings pick as they are currently in 7th seed in west. I also had the Bobcats 2012 1st pick when I traded Utah and Boston 1st picks with it, since CHA is currently 5th seed in east. Hope they both go down for me to get Beal or Marshall and a back up PF for Favors :)

Now 20-5 Utah. Next game vs rockets :)

Playing My Player on 2K11 as an athletic SF/SG. Got drafted with pick 22 by Portland, played 57 games so far (missed 16 through injury - twisted ankle like 4 times and lower back strain). Leading the team in PPG and RPG. Portland traded Wes Matthews and Gerald Wallace for Steve Nash and Grant Hill from the Suns, started working well then Hill went down with an injury.

Recently had an 18 game winning streak ended by OKC and Durant's 44 points (seriously couldn't do a damn thing, bastard was hitting everything LOL) despite 57 pts in my second straight 50+ game (only two of the season too). Blazers are sitting top of the league with 53-20 (30-6 at home :D) but will probably drop a few leading into the playoffs with Grant Hill and Brandon Roy both out for the season (maybe back late into the playoffs if we go that far) with broken ankles and LaMarcus Aldridge out for 1-2 weeks with a sprained knee.

Currently averaging 24.5 PPG, 2.4 ORPG, 11.2 RPG, 1.9 APG, 1.8 SPG, 0.9 BPG, 1.4 TPG with .500 FG%, .275 3P%, .878 FT% on 30.9 MPG.

Started out the season unable to hit a single FT but have hit my groove and only missed one of the last 24. :D My PPG has taken a serious jump in the last few games with Nash pretty much getting me to finish every play without Hill, Roy and Aldridge (occasionally he'll drive himself). Its like he just won't pass to Andre Miller (starting SG with Roy out), Oden or Camby. Rudy Fernandez and Patrick Mills on the other hand (when they get game time), will try and do it all by themselves from one end of the court to the other. :?

Leading the award race for Rookie MVP, though I'm a little worried that missing games will hurt my chances. Was in the running for Defensive Player but have since been knocked out of that by Gerald Wallace over in his new role @ the Suns. Letting Durant hit 44 on me probably wouldn't have helped LOL. Couldn't work out how I let that happen, I'd managed to keep LeBron quiet in our 2 wins over the Heat (both by big margins) and shut down Carmelo for 3 quarters (hit 12 in the 1st and 6-7 for the rest of the game).

Okay, I'll end this now, past tl;dr territory a long time ago. :oops:

Wondering if anyone else has been able to get season averages like this:

Image

Injuries kept me from playing 23 games, so I was unable to win any season awards. My teammate Kevin Durant won MVP and was on the All-D team as well en route to a 66-16 season. Finished out the season on a 32 game win streak before (of course losing the first playoff game).

Had some fun with Orlando.

Traded Dwight right away, Clippers offered me Griffin and Jordan, the best I thought that made sense (Miami offered LeBron, OKC Durant).

First season was a struggle, didn't make the Playoffs. Traded some of the bad contracts away (Davis, J Richardson, Duhon). Acquired Ben Gordon and Damian Lillard in the deals.

Turkoglu and Gordon both picked up their player options, 25M combined, so wasn't much of a player in free agency, signed a bunch of minimum guys. Failed to reach the Playoffs again.

Re-signed Gordon to a 3-year, 11M deal, though it was reasonable as he averaged 17 ppg for me.

Missed the Playoffs again, and the summer was a success. Had about 18M of cap space, Melo opted out of his deal so signed him to a Max-deal. Also got Jordan Hill with the MLE.

So the rotation was :

C - Jordan
F - Griffin
F - Melo
G - Gordon
G - Lillard
------------
6 - A Nicholson
7 - Hill
8 - JR Smith
9 - S Collins
10 - Some euro rookie, who was the 2nd pick, but was a scrub.

To my surprise, only on won 40 games, got to the Playoffs as the 7th seed, only to lose the Heat in 5 games. (Nets got the #1 seed behind league MVP Nolan Smith lol). The Nets would would also win the title.

In the off-season, traded my #17 pick, 2nd round pick and Gordon, who had declined to just 66 to Houston for #12 and Kevin Martin. Got a decent SF, hopefully works out better then that euro guy. Also signed Elton Brand and Shane Battier.

Hopefully this season will be better. Around the league, Miami's big three is over as LeBron went to Phoenix and Bosh went to Charlotte.

Next task is to lock up Lillard long-term, among the league leaders in assists every year. Jordan is locked up, hopefully Melo and Blake want to stick around too.

With the latest roster out, I started a new association with the new, mediocre :/, Celtics.

14 Game Seasons, 3 minute quarters, Injury sliders maxed (makes things interesting), Arcade Sliders :mrgreen:
Image
At 0-3, I got rid of Terry, Lee, and some of the extra bench players for Maxiell & Bynum (Pistons) and some expiring contracts. Also, the Heat had Ray Ray starting at PG....that shit was just unfair, rage quitted (simmed for the loss)
Image
At 3-8, I finally started getting competitive despite having no chance at the playoffs, but ended the season with a 4-10 record, tie with the Wizards for the worst record.
Image
Due to injuries, the Bobcats ended up winning the championship (1, 1, 3, 3 format). Pierce was the PPG leader, KG defensive first team, Rondo AST leader, remember, last place team :), I did some slider adjustments for the 2nd season to make things line up better with the simulated game stats for the CPU teams.
Image
Got the 2nd pick in the draft, crappy trade also got me the 12th pick. Drafted this guy named Ireland, because, well, do I really need to explain it? 6'8" SG (I needed a SG, and I hate passing to PP with "B"), friggin tank, Nate Robinson dunk package despite 69 dunk rating, high 70s for shooting, and 76 OVR. 12th pick is a douche-R-smeesh, gave him a crappy beard and random tattoos, lol. Undersized SF (generated) can shoot but has a shitty animation combination. The 2nd rounder was a 7' Center, turrible, but with my slider sets, I just needed size for swatting.

I really developed Jeff Green and Fab Melo into beasts. Once KG retires at the end of the season (news item) I am just going to throw money at Melo to get him to stay long term. Basically I want the core to be Green, Melo, Ireland, Rondo, and either Avery or douche-R-smeesh, whoever steps up. Picked up Tony Allen and Josh Selby in Free Agency, I also had an accepted offer for James White, but ended up taking it back since I could only sign two (I majorly underballed him too, only 50% interest in the deal, current FA).

So going into season 2, I was pretty excited to finally play with Ireland and see how the team handled....well, the game decided Ireland should sit, so he barely played in the 20 point blowout loss to the Nets (80% to 47% shooting....yea) then with the updated line up all set to go, Melo, Paul, and Bass all went down with major week-month injuries before the next game. And I hit the "Always have CPU adjust rotations" so I went into the game without even knowing about it! TBH, with the injury thing, I really may not resign Pierce at the end of the season. That inconsistency, coupled with my up and coming younger players......I dunno, may be time to hang it up.....that hurts to say.

Finaly finished 2nd regular season with Pacers 61-21 (last season 44-38). Hibbert again all nba 2nd team, Anthony Davis, ROY and All NBA 3rd team.
Now well into the playoffs, only difference from last year, me not underdog anymore. 2nd seed behind HEAT. First round against 7th seed Bobcats :), was an easy walkover, series 4-0 with an average 17.5 margin. Conference semi-finals vs 3rd seed Bulls. 1st game a blowout 114-97, 2nd game was a close one, but still got a win 95-91, 3rd game in united centre was a close one again, but a 3rd W 102-98. Leading series 3-0 and looking forward for a last years re-match in the Conference FInals with Miami. They are leading 3-1 against NY just now. Last year lost to them 2-4. And lost last game to them in the season which prety much decided conference winner this year. Without home court advantage it will be a tough one (my record this season @home 35-6 away 26-15).

Pacers squad:

PG. D.Collison / L.Williams
PG/SG K.Dooling
SG P.George
SF/SG R.Hamilton
SF L.Deng/ J.Moon
PF A.Davis / T.Hansbrough
PF/C C.Wilcox
C R.Hibbert / D.Jordan

Bulls played an amazing Game 4, 84-104 and Game 5, 99-106. Just could not do anything to change the course of both games. For Game 6 was heading to Chicago and was really stressed, was not expecting the series to turn that way after having 3-0 lead... Well, Indiana is going to ECF second year in a row. And second year in a row will face Miami Heat, the defending champions. In Game 6 took control from the beginning and slowly was building up the lead. Final score 98-80, Series 4-2.
West Final is between LAL and Nuggets.

ECF GAME 1 @MIAMI.

Must say it was my best played game the whole season. I kinda left Lebron on his own. Destroyed all the supporting cast including wade and bosh. untill middle of the 3rd Q. Lebron has scored more then 50% of all Miami points. By that point Wade had 6pts on 3-9 shooting, Bosh 4pts on 2-7..
Won the game 107-98. Lebron scored 44pts, but next best player was... T.Zeller :mrgreen: with 10pts and 11rbs. Wade 8pts on 4-12 shooting, Bosh 7pts and 10rbs. All my starting five was in double diggits, while A.Davis 17pts/13rbs and R.Hibbert 21pts/11rbs had double-double.
It was my first away win against miami in two seasons. Taking the lead 1-0 and looking forward of playing another game this evening.

So losing D.Anthony was a main factor in the series, as with him I was 2-1 up in the series, after he wend down with an injury I lost the series 2-4. Finished my season exactly the same as last year, loosing to Miami in ECF. Heat went to the Finals and beat a surprise team from the West, Denver Nuggets, 4-2.

I felt like I need some changes in the off-season. Vogel and B.Show contracts has expired and I decided not to extend them. Surprisingly I found Scott Brooks on a coach market, could not pass that on and signed 3yrs contract with him. Assistant coach B.Cartwright.

K.Weaver, J.Moon, R.Hamilton and C.Wilcox were not offered to extend their contracts. With a 29th pick drafted 203cm 104kg SF from TEXAS. And in the free agency signed K.Garnett 2yrs - $7.5mln., Reggie Williams 3yrs - $10mln, T.Sefolosha was waived by OKC, so picked his contract. Traded away L.Williams who was not happy with his role to Denver for a 1st round pick.

P.George will have last season on his contract and already is telling me he will test free agency next year. So will try to offer him on a trade finder and will see what can i get for him. L.Deng might be on his way out as well.

Roster 2013/2014 so far:

PG D.Collison/K.Dooling
SG D.DeRozan/ T.Sefolosha
SF H.Barnes/ R.Williams / H.Hodgson (rookie)
PF A.Davis / K.Garnett /
C R.Hibbert / D.Jordan / L.Hunt (some generated NBDL player)

Placed L.Deng and P.George on trade finder, got response from 27 teams, but nothing was too good. Have chosen a deal with Raptors. And got DeRozan and H.Barnes. Will see how this will work out. DeRozan is not so versatile as George and 1yr older, but H.Barnes is 7yrs younger version of Deng with bigger OVR already and A potential.

Was not happy keeping T. Hansbrough on the bench for the third season, so just gave him away to Spurs, for L.Hunt and 2014 1st rounder.

Once I get used to 2k13, I'll be starting an association.

Pretty sure my NC Domination save data is long gone but I'll post a write up of the upcoming season, which I remember fairly well, for something that happened about a year ago. :lol:

Looking forward to your new association, do you plan another custom team? or a real NBA team? Do you remember Joachim Keilerhoden? :lol:

Itching to start a thread for my 2K13 association, but holding off until Brick By Brick is finished. Have some recaps backlogged and really enjoying it. You'll never guess which team I chose. :P

When you say it like that, it's either a great team (Lakers, Thunder, Heat, possibly Clippers or Bulls) or it's an easy guess (Charlotte, Portland)

Toronto?

Guys what do you think about the association in this game? My only problem is the potential ratings of every player, to many 90+ overall players just after 3 years.

I like Association so far. It's pretty much the same as 2K12's which I'm fine with and I like Total Sim Control. I haven't gotten that far into an association yet but that's unfortunate about the potential. I'm using the default rosters out of the box too but oh well. Just have to deal with it I guess.

I think Association is really good. They have improved it - slightly. Total sim control makes sense, the sim stats resemble your adjustments. Did a sim with the Bobcats and let them run & gun, we ended up as one of the worst teams in the league but had some pretty nice high scoring games.

Also the stats presentation finally seems to work properly in Association. Lot's of stat overlays during games. That is cool. Rookies are more interesting with sig skills.

Out of the box I don't like the roster, but the stats seem realistic - LeBron, KD, Howard being in the mix for the MVP most of the time is okay. Potential needs to be edited definitely, some players improve so drastically in their first year (+5 - +7)

I'm looking forward to the next roster update with guys like Shved and some others included, then I will start a D - and maybe post it here.

Hi guys. I am currently doing a Bobcats Association. I'm thinking about trading for a veteran power forward, got any ideas?

Antawn Jamison? The Bobcats were interested in him in real life, and he shouldn't be too hard to get away from the Lakers. The Bulls would probably like to get rid of Boozer for some young players and/or picks. He's pretty good in the game, although he's got a somewhat difficult free throw. Al Harrington of the Magic is another good option, and probably the easiest to get out of the three. He can drive, post up and shoot as far out as the three. Zach Randolph is also another possibility. If it were me I would go after Boozer first. He would be a good fit on the current Bobcats team.
