Oh well. I had to because it would have been unrealistic if he just bailed despite me being able to offer more money and more years. Not to mention to go to a team like Phoenix.

Also, Chara was signing in whacky places despite coming off a title. :roll:

Okay, 2k9 is dodgy then if Chara is signing elsewhere. Tyson in Phoenix however isn't so bad. It's not turrible, that's for sure :cool:

My hand was sort of forced. As you will soon see, the logic of 2K9 is pretty bad... Boston ended up with 3 star PGs.

EDIT: I'm working on team and player ranking articles. Hopefully won't be too long of a wait in between my Offseason roundup and those articles I'm writing. :) Once all are finished, the 2013-14 season begins!

- Who is the man? KD (28ppg) or Ty (23ppg, 5rpg,5apg)? Durant even though he is a dick
- Will Sit make any moves or is the team good as it is? More moves, one or two trades
- Is David Lee a flop as a Stealth player (has not reached double digit rebound average in any season on the team)? Yes, trade this guy!!
- Will Bogut be an All-Star again? Yup
- Will Kidd's body hold up? Well he was injured in the playoffs, and he is getting old so no
- Will Adam Morrison be a better fit than Trevor Ariza? His stache is better than Ariza
- Will the Stealth be as successful with Karl at the helm? How many wins?Yes, 59 wins

Who is the man? KD (28ppg) or Ty (23ppg, 5rpg,5apg)?
- I will go against the flow and say it's Ty's time now. Fresh off a max deal and adding another year on his belt he should be able to continue to blossom and take over the team from Kevin "Dickhead" Durant (Y)

Will Sit make any moves or is the team good as it is?
- I reckon a minor deal here or there will make the team better, but mainly the same team should be good

Is David Lee a flop as a Stealth player (has not reached double digit rebound average in any season on the team)?
- No, the level of talent he's playing with is too much. In the case of rebounding, there's Andrew Bogut sharing the front court with him, the wing players Durant and Tyson can both grab boards and lets not forget about the triple double machine in Jason Kidd. Lee is doing just fine

Will Bogut be an All-Star again?
- If no injuries and no different in the system, yes

Will Kidd's body hold up?
- In limited minutes and perhaps even a bench role, yes

Will Adam Morrison be a better fit than Trevor Ariza?
- Hard to say, the Stealth loses a ton of defense from Ariza but having a good shooter to space the floor and allow the others to drive to the basket is important

Will the Stealth be as successful with Karl at the helm? How many wins?
- Karl is still a very good coach and it shouldn't be much different from last season, I say 58 wins

Free Agency

Mavs Upgrades Raises Title Hopes

July 15 2013, DALLASAndrew Watson was swayed by Steve Nash and the Dallas Mavericks at the last minute. ‘The X’ could not say no to a shot at winning an NBA championship and signed a 4 year deal worth 45 million dollars to lend his services to the Mavs. Dallas also signed Aaron Brooks for 3 years on a 30 million dollar deal.

“After my run with Denver (Nuggets) when I first got to the league, I have to say that winning an NBA championship has always been an aim for me,” Watson explained, “I did want to commit to the (Houston) Rockets but I have to apologize to them. I don’t have much time left in my career and this was too hard to say no to.” The 32 year old 10th pick of the 2009 NBA Draft will slide into the starting 2-guard spot alongside Jerryd Bayless in the Mavs backcourt. Watson holds career averages of 18.6 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 3.7 apg, .460 FG% and .400 3PT%.

Watson will be joined by former Rockets PG Brooks. The 28 year old is coming off a season with the New York Knicks and is relishing a chance to play back up to Bayless. “The Mavs have got a good squad,” Brooks said, “I’m looking forward to being a part of what may be ahead.”

Although losing Nash to retirement, the Mavs have a shot at contending for a championship. Bayless has always been a stellar sixth man in his Blazers and Mavs days and should fill in Nash’s shoes competently. Watson is the shooting guard that the Mavs have needed for so long. Dirk Nowitzki may still be a shadow of his old self but he is still a capable scorer. Hedo Turkoglu can still shoot from range and spread the floor while Samuel Dalambert is a solid presence on the boards and in the paint. The old age is balanced out with fresh legs in defensive player of the year candidate Kenneth Dela Cruz and promising prospect Leo Lai.

Defending Champs Sign Chara, Lewis

July 15 2013, SACRAMENTOMoses Chara, unsurprisingly, resigned with the Sacramento Kings for the max 6-year 120 million dollar deal allowed. The surprising pickup of the Summer was Rashard Lewis and a move that is sure to make the Kings favorites to repeat as NBA champions. The title team remains intact but for the addition of veteran sharpshooter Lewis.

The 34 year old will enter his 17th NBA season and is likely to come off the bench for the Kings. The Kings anticipate for Lewis to play the role that starting SG Michael Redd used to play: come off the bench and knock down shots. Lewis has averaged 18.6 ppg over his 16 year career; his first 9 seasons with the Seattle Sonics and the last 6 with the Orlando Magic.

Lewis was excited with the switch, “I weighed it all up and decided that the Kings give me the best shot to win a title. I’m happy to join the defending champions.” Lewis signed a 2 year deal with the Kings.

Cleveland Finally Adds Another Big

July 15 2013, CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Cavaliers come off their demoralizing defeat in the 2013 NBA Finals with a consolation prize in the form of 7’2” C Byron Brock. The signing of Brock has reignited the passion and fanfare in the city; talk of a championship has just begun again.

“The people of Cleveland never stop dreaming of winning a title,” Lebron James said, “Adding Brock and (Terrell) Hicks are definitely the right moves. It’s a shame to see Boobie (Daniel Gibson) go but we are getting two great guys into the ball club. This is without a doubt an important move to keep up with the rest of the league.”

Brock joins the Cavs on a 5 year, 81 million dollar deal. Brock was drafted by the Knicks in 2009 with the number 4 pick but off-court issues forced him to be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers before his second season began. The 25 year old has slowly improved and averaged 9.5 ppg and 7.7 rpg last season. He is expected to form a helluva 1-2 punch in the paint for the Cavs with Joakim Noah.

Cleveland also added the 11th pick of the 2009 Draft, SG Terrell Hicks, whom was not wanted back by the Toronto Raptors. Hicks felt betrayed by the team that drafted and developed him, “It’s their loss if they don’t want me back. I’ve moved onto better things with this ball team here.” The 6’6” Hicks will come off the bench for the Cavs who were intrigued with his shooting ability (.410 3PT%) as he seemingly replaces Daniel Gibson.

Moore Stays Loyal To Hornets

JULY 15 2013, NEW ORLEANSMark Moore, 26, was tempted to sign with the Memphis Grizzlies but instead chose to be loyal and stick with the New Orleans Hornets after they had saved him from the Charlotte Bobcats in the middle of the last season. Moore has averaged 17.8 ppg and 4.6 apg over his 4 year NBA career after being drafted by the Bobcats in 2009 with the 9th overall draft pick.

Suns Settle For Martti Must

JULY 15 2013, PHOENIX – Estonian PF Martti Must brushed off suggestions that he was not content with being the Phoenix Suns’ consolation prize, “Reshawn (Tyson) is a great player. I used to play with him at North Carolina. He’s a good friend and I don’t mind being second to him.”

Must was able to sign a 5 year, 86 million dollar deal with the Suns after Tyson had said no to the same team. Must left the Memphis Grizzlies after 4 seasons and being picked by the franchise in 2009. The 25 year old had a career year last season: 20 ppg, 11.6 rpg, 6.6 apg, 2.4 bpg. He is hoping to continue with that form with the Suns as he lines up alongside former All-Star Baron Davis.

“I told my agent that I wanted to play with at least one other All-Star,” Must said, “Baron has all the experience and the tools to help me. I think I can also help him and the Suns get back to the playoffs.”

Wow, the X on the Mavs with Dirk, that must be the team I'm rooting for this season. (Seattle-Dallas Conference Finals).

Other than that, some decent signings here and there, Noah and Hicks will be interesting, I honestly did not know Hicks before.

Good stuff, keep it coming (Y)

- Who is the man? At this point Durant, who knows maybe things will change next season, but for now, KD is no.1 on your team , he just gets it done
- I think there will be a trade but Ty is too good for you to trade him
- A little bit disappointed in David Lee, I'm expecting a trade for a big man
- I don't think Bogut will be an all-star. Ty will need more space to blossom into a true superstar so it means less touches for Bogut
- Yes, the guy was rock solid throughout his whole career. Reduced numbers for sure, but with this team it won't be a big problem
- Not a chance, Ariza is a defensive stopper and a good shooter from beyond the arc, he can be a good player off the bench at best
- I'm predicting 52-57 wins and a trip to the NBA finals, but i don't expect you to win it yet, I think you are aiming to make Ty's story very similar to Jordan's. And he didn't win his first ring until his 7 th season

Crybaby Must, you are flanked by Baron Davis, Leandro Barbosa, Nate Robinson, Jason Richardson in he backcourt. Can't think of who is in the frontcourt but they desperately needed you. Look on page 10-12 and you should see their roster... Most of it is intact. Phoenix aren't bad, you will make them better.

Surprised to see myself in Dallas. I guess Steve Nash got into my ear in the off-season. I've got a feeling money came into it. That's a big deal & sets me up financially for the rest of my life. I'm guessing with the great talent that the Rockets added that they weren't going to pony up that sort of cash & length of deal, right? Should be interesting how the season goes.

I think the Rockets offered a larger contract. You must have opted fo a chance to win a title. The Mavs split their cap space between you and Brooks which was actually a smart move. I was impressed with the logic. Don't know why you didn't stay in Houston but the move to Dallas makes sense.

Dallas has a great team.

Hova - the Cavs signed Brock. Noah was there last season. Brock used to play for Philly who are now fucked cause they lost three starters: Brock, Ressurreccion and Brand. :S

Re: A Legend Is Born III - Tyson Signs.

Postby megarover on Tue Nov 30, 2010 9:03 am

    - Who is the man? KD (28ppg) or Ty (23ppg, 5rpg,5apg)? Durant is undoubtedly still the man in my book. Durant hasn't even hit 30 yet and is in his prime. Ty is a lot like Pippen or a younger Kobe in the way that he brings an all around approach to the game. He isn't as good as a rebounder or passer as Pippen and not as talented offensively as Kobe but hopefully he will improve in those areas. One thing for sure is he is one heck of a second option.
    - Will Sit make any moves or is the team good as it is? I think you should move Lee. I was very high on his signing but he just isn't getting it done.His best attribute scoring is redunant on a team with Durant, Tyson and Iverson and he doesn't seem to show up in big games anyways.. Some moves should probably be made to get him off your hands. Maybe Bosh, Must or perhaps even STAT!
    - Is David Lee a flop as a Stealth player (has not reached double digit rebound average in any season on the team)? Do you have to ask. **** YEA
    - Will Bogut be an All-Star again? I see no reason not. A capable scoring in the post and a nice defender usually earns you an All-Star selection
    - Will Kidd's body hold up? Keep his minutes low and gradually bring up your young PG's and I see no reason not.
    - Will Adam Morrison be a better fit than Trevor Ariza? I dont really think so but I've always been a big Ariza fan since his stint in LA. In 09 I felt he was a major reason we won the title while at the same time Stache was sitting on the bench cutting his toenails. He is great in the open court while being a solid shooter and nice man defender. What else do you want from a role player?
    - Will the Stealth be as successful with Karl at the helm? How many wins?
With a team this talented the only way they aren't successful is if the team plane crashes. I'm predicting 58 wins for this team.

Must: Suns Not Good Enough

PHOENIX, July 20 (AP) – Newly signed PF Martti Must may have claimed that he was confident and excited about joining Phoenix but sources have revealed that it may all be a charade. In what will be disappointing for Suns fans, the Estonian All-Star has allegedly said, "(I am) not sure the Suns are the team that will make a deep Playoff push." This has caused anger amongst the senior playing ranks at the ball club with All-Star guard Baron Davis being one of many voicing displeasure at their new team mate's attitude.

"If he doesn't think we can be successful then he shouldn't be coming here," Davis told a reporter on the phone. SF Jason Richardson also responded to a question for his thoughts, "I think that if he wants to have a whinge then he should have stayed with the (Memphis) Grizzlies. We work hard here in Phoenix and if he think we're losers then he shouldn't come here. Wait till we see him for training camp." PG Leandro Barbosa, in Brazil with his national team, was shocked that Must would say such a thing, "I though he was a professional."

Perhaps the harshest jibe was that of PG Nate Robinson who stated, "Maybe the crybaby needs his dummy."

Suns General Manager Charles Barkley could not be reached for comment. The Suns Organization explained that he was away for the opening of a new Las Vegas casino.

- Who is the man? KD (28ppg) or Ty (23ppg, 5rpg,5apg)? Ty, since he is a team player
- Will Sit make any moves or is the team good as it is? Sit will make at least 1 move. I predict 2.
- Is David Lee a flop as a Stealth player (has not reached double digit rebound average in any season on the team)? NO!
- Will Bogut be an All-Star again? Possibly. But not likely, he is getting older now.
- Will Kidd's body hold up? Yes, his injury was a fluke due to the NBA's Brett Favre.
- Will Adam Morrison be a better fit than Trevor Ariza? No, he will be one of the players that I would put on the trading block.
- Will the Stealth be as successful with Karl at the helm? How many wins? Yes, 74

Improve Your Player and All-NEW Player Influence


Last chance for you guys to improve your players before the All-Star break. Please PM me your requests. Ensure that you know what attributes exist in 2K9!

Improve Your Player

Every participant has a certain number of points that they will be able to use on improving attributes of their virtual player. You only have one chance to use all these points so don’t waste your points (i.e. any leftover points are not able to be brought forward to the next tipping competition).

For every Skill-based attribute, it costs you 4 points in order to improve that certain attribute by 1. For every Physical-based attribute, it costs you 8 points in order to improve that certain attribute.

Skill-based attributes are skills like shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, etc. Physical-based attributes includes attributes like strength, speed, endurance, as well as mental attributes such as awareness. If you are unsure whether the attribute you want to include is a skill-based or physical-based one, you are able to post and pose your question.

A quick example of how to let me know how you want to improve your player:

Player: 75 points
Three point shooting + 5 (20 points)
Mid range shooting + 4 (16 points)
Layup + 3 (12 points)
Stamina + 3 (24 points)
3 Points left over that cannot be spent


All-NEW Grinch Effect

The Grinch will be able to deduct points that you have earned in the competitions so that you are unable to use them. I have decided that the Grinch will not be able to lower your ratings as it is more work for me. It is easier to deduct points before you can use them.

Every 1 point that the Grinch earns works out as 2 negative points. He can use negative points to deduct points that others have earned.

However, he is at liberty to use his points to improve the ratings of any player as well.

That is why the Grinch Effect is the wildcard of this interactive experience!

All-NEW Player Influence

Here is a brand new scheme that gives you more control over the fortunes of your virtual player.

Complain About Role On Team: 100 points
Demand Trade: 200 points
Demand Trade and Request Destination: 250 points

For Free Agents Only

Choose a preferred destination: 80 points
Choose 2 preferred destinations: 120 points
Choose 3 preferred destinations: 150 points

The points listed are minimum values. The more points you spend, the stronger your request will be. If you don’t like being a benchwarmer, you can complain about your role. The more points you use, the stronger your complaint will be. It may result in a teammate being traded away or you forcing your way into the starting five. For example, spend 150 points to complain about your role and you are more likely to succeed with your complaint than spending just 100 points.

If you don’t like your team, spend at least 200 points to demand a trade. To ensure your trade demand does not fall upon deaf ears, spend more points to get your point across.

There are no guarantees that your player’s wishes will be heard and the only way to get past this is to spend more points.

Points

You can accumulate points during any time of the season by participating in contests and also by posting articles that provide a different view of my story. These points may be cashed in: at the conclusion of the postseason, before the regular season begins and All-Star weekend.

Prospects can only use their points during the preseason/before the regular season.

Good luck!

Points (Pending Grinch Effect)

Playoff predictions, awards predictions and other points have all been accounted for. As you will see below, all those who participated in the ‘random’ contests or posting articles have the most points. You can still post articles if you wish!

BREAKING NEWS: Bosh Traded To Heat

MIAMI, September 20 (AP) – On the eve of NBA teams starting training camp, the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors have agreed on a trade that will send All-Star PF Chris Bosh to South Beach. The Heat have agreed to deal SG JR Smith, PG Luke Ridnour and two future first round draft picks for Bosh.

Bosh, 29, is an 11 year pro and averaged 25 ppg, 10 rpg last season for the Raptors. He has played for Toronto over his entire career but has been embroiled in trade rumours for the past 4 to 5 seasons. Bosh is excited about playing alongside All-Stars Michael Beasley and Dwyane Wade, “It’s great. I’ve played with both of these guys before. I’ve played with Wade for Team USA. We know how each other plays.”

Smith is a high scoring journeyman who averaged 24.4 ppg last season. The 27 year old 10 year pro is expected to start for Toronto and give PG Chris Hova another scoring option to work with. Smith will be excited to be the second scoring option behind rookie and first pick Coby Clark. Ridnour is a 32 year old veteran who has been brought in to back up Hova. The Raptors are reportedly to be involved in a separate deal that will send PG Jose Calderon to the LA Lakers.

Hova, Clark give Raptors hope for 2013 campaign

TORONTO September 21 (CP) – Chris Hova and rookie Coby Clark are already working together for more than three weeks and seemed very self-confident as the Raptors' training camp started yesterday.

"We are really clicking, in all my years in Toronto we have not had such a special player like Coby (Clark)", Hova stated as the Raptors introduced their training camp roster to the media.

"Chris (Bosh) ... I mean, he was awesome, he's a good guy, but I've always said he does not lift this team to the Playoffs and he didn't", Hova described the situation last year, where the Raptors again failed to make it to the postseason with Bosh being their franchise player.

Now that Bosh got traded to Miami in exchange for the 27-year old swingman JR Smith and veteran point guard Luke Ridnour, it seems like a new era has began for the only canadian franchise in the NBA.

"I have never worked as hard during offseason as I did this summer", Hova said, who is said to be hitting the gym every day for more than four hours and also disclaimed playing for Germany past summer.

"Me and Coby, we ran drills in Derek Fisher's training camp and it really helped us to get to know each other", the german point guard described his latest activities. The ex-Laker veteran Fisher's (retired 2012) training camps have a very good reputation of being professional and also training how to understand the game better.

"I love being in Toronto, playing alongside Chris (Hova) and these other guys, I think we can make some noise in the East and make it to the postseason", an optimistic Coby Clark said while signing autographs.

The only problem in Toronto could be the unsatisfying situation of Spaniard Jose Calderon, who has not yet arrived in training camp after playing at the 2013 European Championship for his home country.

Calderon's name has been part of many trade rumours recently.

Davis:Must has to be a professional

PHOENIX,July 21(AP).A huge concern was raised into the Suns' organization, for newly signed PF out of North Carolina, Martti Must, after his controversial words,about his concerns for Suns' potential this season. There have been several players from the team,who are really frustrated with the Estonian,and some of them decided to talk on the press about this matter.

Suns starting PG,and a respectable player on the league, Baron Davis, decided to talk in deep about his thought on this matter,on ESPN.com.

"I'm really surprised with this kid" Said the veteran out of UCLA. "I believed that he moved to Phoenix because he knew he could do something great with this team. But after his statement on the press today (w.n.:yesterday), I really feel that he has an attitude which belongs to an amateur,not a professional player. If he signed only because there was a possibility Tyson would sign as well,then he did a mistake." He added clearly irritated. "If he doesn't think we can be successful then he shouldn't be coming here. Phoenix Suns is an organization who takes care of all it's members,and who is currently on a rebuilding stage,working hard and getting ready for a new season.We're not losers here.We're doing our best in order to win,and if he doesn't share the same spirit,he won't fit in here"

Davis concluded his little interview with a statement." Mr. Must , you have to act professionally ,and give your best in order to help this team win.Otherwise, demanding a trade won't be a bad idea"

It's still unknown how the solid PF will react on those late talks about himself and on the harsh comments from his new teammates,especially from Baron Davis and Nate Robinson, with the second calling Marrti Must "a crybaby". It's speculated that Must's reply will come on the next hours

I do like it because it's to the point and no showboating. :) I hate it when everyone writes their virtual player as a superstar or having the potential to be one. The only ones who haven't done it are you and The X.

Admittedly though Sit, when you have your NLSC-er in other Associations/Dynasties, you write stuff as if they are a superstar or the one, so you can't be too hard on people that do it in yours :lol:

Anyways, at work at the mo. Got an idea for a quick, small article on my player. Just a matter of finding the time to do it. Maybe tonight if I'm lucky :P

Zolio Resurrection not welcoming to Rookie Lewis

The star point guard of the 76ers, Zolio Resurrection has stated that he is not liking the 76ers' first round pick, Willie Lewis.

"I mean, for a kid picked 23rd? He talks too much. Someone needs to get him some duct tape, because we don't need some kid with a big ego ruining our team. We're a playoff team, not some team that needs a hero."

Ever since Willie Lewis' comments about Woody Hannes surfaced, many people have criticized him for his trash talking. But Lewis, 21, has not spoken to the Media ever since his rookie Press Conference, where he said that he hopes to work with the Superstar Point Guard in establishing a friendship-at least on the court.

"He may not like me, I may not like him. As long as we don't drag this onto the court, it isn't a big deal. See what's happening in Seattle? That's a big deal."

When asked about minutes, Lewis simply responded, "I can play the 2."

The 76ers, who were sweeped by the Nets, are in attack mode, trying to bring the hopes of a title to Philly. With Andre Igoudala, Elton Brand, and Resurrection, the team hopes for a more successful playoff run.

"You know, if Zolio and Willie can't get along, this is going to be a long season." said Vince Carter.

"They need to get together, have a beer, and talk about getting this team to a championship." said Elton Brand, who has clearly stated that he is excited this year.

Friend of Resurrection and Mavericks player Kenneth Dela Cruz has called out Lewis, calling him, 'Cocky, ignorant, and plain stupid.'

But in surprise, Andre Igoudala defended Lewis.

"I don't want some idiot with no knowledge of what's going on to be taunting my teammate. I don't care if he made some comments about a writer, if you wanna talk crap about my teammates, you're asking for it."

Sorry, forgot to add in the above recap that Zoilo has left and gone to Boston. The Sixers don't have anyone at starting PG atm. WIllie Lewis might even get to be a surprise starter. So you should change your article Hondo. (Y) Good effort though.

Sixers have Vince Carter, Andre Iguodala. They lost starting C (to Cleveland), PF (to Washington)and PG (To Boston).
