STORY OF THE YEAR 2013!

NBA Live 2K14 Current gen is already out, everyone are looking forward to the Next Gen version as well as the return of NBA Live, so time to wrap up the year and vote for the best story this past year.

This time you'll need to vote for just 5 stories, not 8 like last, should make it more simple.

Rules :

* You can't vote for your own story.
* Votes will be sent to me via PM.
* Voting ends on Nov 20.
* You can vote for any active dynasty/association, last update within the last 6 months. (By the story maker, don't just bump someone's old topic to make it eligible.)

Voting will be like this :

1st : A's Hawks (10 points.)
2nd : B's Hawks (8 points.)
3rd : C's Hawks (6 points.)
4th : D's Hawks (4 points.)
5th : E's Hawks (2 points.)

Get voting. :)

The winner will get this prestigious trophy :

Thanks for making this Martti. Wasn't sure if we would given the lack of activity in this section. I'll send you my votes. As for 2007, I want to say Pursuer's Lakers dynasty? (IIRC all the picture links are dead but that was a good one)

No surprises really with the winner (or the top three for that matter).

Congratulations to Phil89. Well deserved at this point, after a few years of quality story writing.

As for me, I'm surprised I received so many points. Thanks for everyone for voting for my new thread :)

Wow, that's totally unexpected for me. Didn't even think I was in the running. Thanks to everyone who voted. :)

I started that association because I wanted a change from my OKC games, starting with the lowly Wizards and trying to make them relevant. I'm in a good position now thanks to some bold trading and some luck in the lottery which landed me Andrew Wiggins, but I have played every game and feel like I've earned everything so far. I was slightly questioning my choice after losing my first 23 games in my first season though, I must admit. Hopefully it can be third time lucky and I can challenge for the title this season.

I'll probably continue for a couple more seasons as well as 2k13 is still great for me and I can't justify buying a PS4 yet.

Congrats to everyone who got votes and it's good to see so many good threads in this section as well. :applaud:

Haven't been on here for a while and just saw this, big congrats to Phil89 (I suppose spoiler tags are unnecessary now?) and thanks to everybody who voted for me (Y)

Unfortunately this section does seem to be dying down a bit so hopefully the second half of the season brings back a bit more interest in here soon.
