Thanks to
Lamrock, Chaser7, Andrew, Clutch, airBerlin, homicide1550, almightyx for Inspiration!!!
Albys for his FANTASTIC RR8
CHNxiaoju for the AWESOME Shoe Patches - You make us Proud!!
Za man for his AMAZING ESPN HD PATCH
urh28+Andreas Dahl for the Practice Gym

THANK YOU ALL
I hope i could do my best in this dynasty and hopefully reach all your great standards!!


Note: since live 08 starts in the 07-08 season, and i dont want to sim a season, i would play 07-08 as if it was 08-09, so all years would be moved back by one year :D

2nd Note: Most Likely i would do weekly updates, playing in some games, simming others, intervene some. one game of the week would be done via recap, cause 82 game season is too long for every game to write recaps on...

Bobcats Features
Act One- Change has begun

September 12th, 2008 7:30am
Bobcats Office

"Morning Everyone"
The New Major Owner of the Charlotte Bobcats greets his workers as he goes into his office, just as he does every morning, and turns on his computer to check his email..
"oh, whats this?" wondered Jordan when he read one of his latest mail, sent by someone he does not know, labeled "Ideas to make the Bobcats better"...
"Interesting.." - said Jordan, as he started to type up a reply mail to the sender, asking for a phone number for contact"

10 minutes later..

"Secretary, what do you need Mr Jordan?"
"could you get me Rod in my office in 20 minutes time? and send me Larry immediately, thanks"
"No problem"


"Hey there michael, what do you need?" asked Larry Brown as he entered Jordan's office.

"Larry, i just got this email from this guy that lives in Hong Kong regarding improvements to our team, he's got a pretty good look on things and has some great ideas, what do you think?"

"what, you mean hire him as GM and fire Rod?"

"yes, i mean, we gave rod time, and he hasnt done a nice job so far, best move he made was firing Sam Vincent..."

"I don't mind, as long as the new guy has the ability to bring in guys that can play the right way, its all good with me"

Higgins comes in

"oh hey Rod, sit down, we got a few things to discuss with you" - said Jordan

"Michael..Larry, what is it?"

"well, we have been discussing it, and we gave you a year, but.." Michael began to speak

"wait, wait, give me some more time, i promise you, i got this season in the bag, we are gonna make the playoffs this season, just give me one more season to prove myself!" begged Higgins

"No Rod, a change is needed here, i am sorry, but time has run out, and i am getting laughed at by the team's poor performance, and i think you've lost it...You're Fired"

thud

"sigh, Larry, call 911 and get us an ambulance, we'll pay for his medical bills, last thing we can do anyway."

"alright, but man, getting fired is enough for him to faint, bad decision hiring him Mike"

"please don't remind me of that Larry, it is as embarrassing as it is without adding to it.."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

approximately 8339 miles away, in the city of Hong Kong

"yawn...i wonder if i would get a reply from MJ" said Leo as he finishes his homework for the day and logs onto his email account.

a message entitled Are you interested? sits in the email folder, Leo opens it curiously...

"To whom may it concern
Jordan here, after reading through the email you've sent me, i would like to ask a few things, please contact me via the Bobcats office number"


"WOAH, did Michael Jordan just asked me to call him? holy shit!" Leo yelled in excitement as he reaches for the phone...

20 minutes later, he was packing his bags and took a cab towards the Hong Kong International Airport for a flight to Charlotte.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in Charlotte, inside Michael Jordan's Office

"Michael, are you sure about this? the kid is only 17, he hasnt even graduated from his High School Yet!" asked Larry Brown

"Yes Larry, i am sure, besides, he's got some great ideas for the team, i am surprised actually, he showed some maturity and a deep understanding of the business, the game, the organization, and the league in general, I think he'll do well, you will like him, he's a basketball player himself" answered Jordan

"alright...gonna have to wait and see...i'll trust you on this one Mike"

Bobcats Features
Act Two - Offseason..Bobcats Makes a Move

September 18th, 2008 2:30pm
Bobcats Office

"Hello, Leo speaking" said Leo as he picked up his phone

"Hey there Leo, Michael here, just wondering if you could come over to the conference room right now to have a discussion with me and Larry with regards to the team"

"Yeah sure, be right there"

2 Minutes Later, in the Bobcats Conference Room...

"Hello Leo, glad you could join us" said Jordan and Brown as the young GM walks into the room

"Hey, so sup? What do you guys think about the teams? what kind of moves would you like me to look for?"

"Well, me and Larry discussed it, and we want to build around three guys"

"Let me guess, Emeka, DJ, and Jason?"

"...that was fast, anyways, what do you think the team is lacking?" asked Jordan, with a little bit of surprise in his tone due to Leo's quick response

"Well, as of now, we lack firepower. J-Richardson is doing well, but he seems to be the only one doing well, we can count on him to put up some points all night long, but the other scorer on the team, Gerald Wallace, he doesnt produce as well when we play him at the 3, but if we play him at the 4, he would be undersized, he has helped the team alot ever since the expansion draft, but this is an issue we have to deal with now; Emeka needs to work on his offensive moves, and we'll just have to hope DJ has what it takes to be a pass first point guard." answered Leo

"You talked about moving Gerald? what kind of player are you looking for in return?" Larry asked, curious

"well, since we have our point guard already, i say we move Wallace and Nazr for big guys, cause i dont really want to see Emeka playing undersized Center again, and Nazr just cant do that. move Emeka to the PF position, play DJ at the point and Matt at the 2, Richardson at the 3, and the big guy, who ever he is, at Center, i think thats our best immediate option" answered Leo after a quick thought

"Good idea, see who you can find, and try to get us under the cap while you are at it" said Michael

"alright thanks boss"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
a few days later...

"hum...who would be willing to take both Wallace and Mohammad for a good quality center? darn.." thought Leo as he looked at info and analysis all over the web for some hints

ring...ring...

"Hello, Leo speaking" answered Leo as he picks up his phone

"Hey there Leo, i am the GM of the Phoenix Suns, Steve Kerr. First off, congratulations on becoming a GM, you have made history as the youngest GM ever!"

"oh hey there Steve, thanks. but sup?"

"oh, regarding that, what would you want for Gerald Wallace?" asked Kerr

"well, is amare available?" said Leo, half serious as he tests Kerr's reaction as to how far he would go to get his hands on Wallace

"well..he is our future, wallace is not going to be as productive, so sorry man, its going to be a no"

"thats ok, i am looking for a big guy in return, can Lopez be included in a package for Wallace?"

"Lopez is not going to be traded, but if you are looking for big guys, there is always the Big Cactus, he doesnt fit into our system that well"

"Shaq? dudes got a 20 million dollar contract...well..unless you can take Nazr Mohammad and Adam Morrison off my team, then its a deal" answered Leo thoughtfully

"Mohammad and Morrison? hum....alright, i accept, let me get this deal done on paper and get league approval, nice dealing there Leo"

"thanks Steve"

5 minutes later

"puff puff, hey Mr Jordan!!"

"I told you man, call me Mike or something, Mr Jordan is too formal, but whats the hurry?"

"I got us our big guy" answered Leo as he caught his breath

"already? who is it? Howard? Yao? Tyson?"

"nope, i got us The Diesel"

"WHAT!!! YOU GOT US A 20 MILLION DOLLAR, 36 YEAR OLD WHO AVERAGED JUST A BIT OVER 10-10 LAST SEASON? HAVE YOU GONE MAD? Who did you send?" Yelled Michael in disbelieve

"woah calm it Boss, i sent Wallace, Mohammad, and Morrison" answered Leo

"oh..thats better, but i hope for your sake this is worth it..."

"it will work out in the end boss...err Michael"

"I hope so, too tired of losing, at least you got my nightmare Mohammad and Morrison outta here"

Wow. Haven't seen Shaq in a dynasty in a while. The price is right though, and you'll be getting 20 million in cap relief once his contract is done.

Good luck working him into your system. You should update your roster post.

Martti: not really, got rid of Adam "the bust" Morrison, Nazr Mohammad, also traded away Wallace who doesnt fit into the Larry Brown system :D

Lamrock: yeah, i am a fan of the Big Diesel from the Laker days, even if i am not a Laker fan, and this trade makes sense, since Terry Porter (new suns HC) likes defense, Gerald Wallace brings that to the Suns. Thanks man, i'll update it soon :D

Will you trade Felton due to the PG fiasco? You should trade him for a decent SF and a backup PG.

Bobcats Features
Act Three - Training Camp

September 29th, 2008 5:00pm

"Welcome back guys, hope you all enjoyed the off season, hopefully not too out of shape, I'm gonna let Larry and Leo take over now" Jordan stated after all the Bobcats players have arrived at the Michael Jordan Practice Gym that was built recently.

"Well, I'll start first by introducing myself; My name is Leo, i am 17, 6 foot, 135 pound guy from Hong Kong. I am your new General Manager, nice to meet you. I'll also be joining you guys in this training camp, and sometimes regular practice, since i am still young and in shape, i MIGHT be able to be of help to the training sessions." said Leo, a bit nervously

The guys seemed happy enough with their new GM, and some looked really glad, most likely it's because this is the first time they would get a staff member (besides michael) that would be joining them in practices, not just sitting in office drinking coffee and looking at stats.

"Well, i guess i need no introduction, we've met a few times, some of you have been with me in the off season trainings and also the younger guys, like DJ, were in the summer league earlier on. I am Larry Brown for some others. I hope you guys are prepared for this training camp, not preparing and getting back into shape through it, i want you guys to play the right way in order for the team to win, it's going to be about the team, and you are part of the team, get some rest, i'll see you guys here at 6:30 tomorrow morning for start of the camp, i want you guys to work hard and improve as a whole" Larry finished with that

The players go off for dinner, hanging out, chilling..etc, while the GM Leo goes off and starts practicing shooting. Larry and Michael leaves the place together, talking about their own North Carolina days.

Four Hours Later...inside the Jordan Practice Gym

Larry Brown enters the gym, planning to draw up some plans for the start of the camp.

swish...swish....swish...

"i wonder who that is, practicing shooting this late" muttered Larry quietly as he walks quietly to the court to check out who it was.

It was Leo, the young GM that had been practicing since after the team greeting at 5pm, he had been practicing for 4 hours straight

"wow.. i haven't had a kid with this kind of a work ethic and desire to train and work hard in ages..and he isnt even a player, hes just a general manager! I am starting to like this kid already, just as Michael had said.."thought Larry Brown, impressed at Leo's desire to get better and his love for basketball.
Larry quietly walks out of the court area, and goes off to set his plans and stuff for the camp.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two Days Later

So Far the Training Camp has been decent, guys are improving, players are getting to know each other well, and getting to know the GM a little bit well, and are overall impressed with his basketball skills even if he is just an Asian high school player, however.....

"NO!!!, WHAT ARE YOU DOING???!!! You Should have PASSED that ball, not go for a prayer jump shot!!!!! I DONT GIVE A DAMN IF YOU ARE FROM NORTH CAROLINA OR NOT, YOU PLAY THE RIGHT WAY IF YOU ARE ON MY TEAM!" Once again Larry Brown Blows his whistle and screams at the top of his voice towards Raymond Felton, who just doesnt get why he needs to pass the ball so damn often.

"WHAT!! ARE YOU SAYING THAT I CANT PLAY? I SCORED 14.4 PPG LAST SEASON WITH A FG PERCENTAGE OF 41 PERCENT! PRAYER SHOT MY ASS" Felton retaliated with this statement

"I've had it with you, unless you are shooting 100% from the field, i want you to play THE RIGHT WAY and PASS THAT DAMN BALL, come over and sit on the bench for a while, DJ, fill in and continue with the play."

Felton walked to the far corner, sat down, and started sulking...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 6th, 2008

It was the Last day of the training camp, and so far progresses have been pleasing, Jason Richardson had improved his Jump Shot and shot selection tremendously, while DJ Augustin, the 9th overall pick in the 08 draft, had shown his Point Guard skills, Shaq looked decent, playing solid defense, grabbing boards, dominating all the Bobcats down low, and even slamming in down once every 3 possessions or so, everything looked great.

"alright guys, its nearly afternoon soon, i wont keep you long cause you are gonna need some rest for the game on the 8th against the Magic in Orlando, its your first preseason game and i want us to start strong. We are just gonna have a game to wrap things up" announced Larry Brown.

"Sweet, what are the lineups going to be coach?"

"The white team, which is going to be DJ, Matt, Jason, Emeka, and Shaq, Raymond Felton and Sean May; against the orange team, who has Alexis, Shannon, Jermareo, Jared, and Leo. The losing team is going to do 250 pushups and 20 sucides." answered Coach Brown

Shaq easily won the Jump ball and got things started, DJ ran a simple pick and roll and resulted in an alleyopp slam from DJ to Jason Richardson.

The White Team quickly jumped to a 12-4 lead, easily stopping the Orange team's offenses and increased the lead to 26-10 by the end of the first quarter, by half time it was 57-38.

However, when the 2nd half began, the White team got too full of themselves, and the Orange team cut the lead to 18 and made it 67-49 at the end of the 3rd.

The 4th saw Leo playing for the first time in the game, when Shannon Brown had accidentally twisted his ankle and needed to get it treated so it doesnt get bad, this is when everything went wrong for the White team.

They had underestimated Leo, and thought that a 17 year old kid couldnt do much against them, Leo proved them wrong, by first hitting a wide open 30 foot 3 pointer, which had surprised everyone in the gym, he then ran the offense at the point for the orange, scoring, making plays, defending, and helped the orange team, with the help of fellow rookie Alexis Ajinca, who had gotten hot in the 4th quarter, and cut the lead to 2, 78-76 with 20 seconds remaining, which they would have possession.

Leo catches the ball on the inbounds play from a good find by Jared Dudley, and called for pick and pop play, a play that he is most familiar with since the start of his playing days; he comes off a nice pick by Alexis, gets open at the right handed 45 degree angle on the 3 point line, his sweet spot, and fired the 3 ball at the buzzer, the whole gym was silent for about half a second when the sweet sound of swish was heard.

Coach Brown was shocked, he had expected the Orange team to play hard, but not win, and certainly not the young GM knocking down a 25 foot buzzer beater off a high pick and pop play. the White team was shocked also, and some held their heads in disbelief.

"Well, i hoped you guys had learned your lesson, never underestimate anybody on the court, go do your sucides and pushups, however, i must say i was impressed with how you have played, Leo" said Larry Brown after calling over the players.

"Na, i just played hard and got lucky on a couple of shots, those guys are way better then me, i played just a couple of minutes and i am really tired, not to mention the past 2 weeks has given me some serious fatigue" answered Leo

"Well, all of you go home and rest, you all put some hard work in the camp, and i'll see you guys on the 8th"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After every body left, only Michael and Brown are remaining

"what do you think Michael, should we do that?"

"I know what you are thinking, lets just see a few preseason games and see what we need"

ok, lately, i have been really pissed with live 08..even with the roster patches, sim engine fix, aiacts..etc, besides graphics 08 is a real downer, i am thinking about doing this dynasty on live 06, what do you guys think? the best thing about it is the sim engine and the better gameplay, also my copy of live 06 is english instead of chinese.

the bad part is that i don't know any good current roster patches that could match the quality of Albys' Realistic Roster, since Andrew hasnt been making live 06 NLSC roster patches in a while.

thanks guys

Well, since you haven't played any games yet, I think it could work. I'm sure you can find a quality Live 06 roster, considering the Live 06 project going on.

Good luck.

thanks Lamrock, most likely i would wait a week or two so Andrew's live project rosters could be released, it'll most likely have all the art updates anyways

airBerlin: yeah, live 08 pisses ppl off so badly...

Guangdong isn't canto, they're Chinese. Hong Kong is canto. I'm referring to the region he's from, not the language they speak

我可能这个夏天去香港陆游, 跟朋友们学了一点儿粤语, 看着能不能跟别人对话

Okafor leads Bobcats to close win over Superman

Image

All seems well for the new-look Bobcats as they started off their preseason games with a close win in Orlando against Dwight "Superman" Howard and the Orlando Magic.

The Bobcats played terribly in the first quarter, only scoring 10 points and trailed by 15 at the end of the first, but a quick timeout early in the second, along with some serious shouting from new Head Coach Larry Brown got them going, as they ended the second quarter going 27-17.

The second half featured some serious face paced offense from both teams, with Charlotte scoring 39 in the 3rd and Orlando scoring 31, while the 4th was less so due to increased defense from both sides, Charlotte pulled away in the final 2 minutes and won the game.

Shaquille O'Neal was impressive in his Bobcats debut game, getting 10 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 blocks, he helped shut down Magic's Dwight Howard and limited him to only 1 point in the half, and 5 by the end of the game.

The other new Bobcat, Yuta Tabuse, had a nice game coming off the bench, scoring 5 points and dished out 4 assists, 3 of which were ally-opp passes to Okafor and Shaq.

Dwight Howard grabbed an impressive amount of 21 rebounds for the Magic, but as mentioned above, was limited to only 5 points by Shaq, last season's Most Improved Player Hedo Turkoglu led the Magic with 29 points, with Rashard Lewis not far behind with 26. Rookie Courtney Lee had 18 points and 10 assists, while Jameer Nelson racked up 15 and dished out 10 also.

Notes: Bobcats Point Guard Raymond Felton was sent to the locker room after just 7 minutes of play, he argued with Coach Brown during the timeout to sub him off, and as a result was sent to the locker room, the Bobcats refused to comment on this matter, but trade rumors have begun to arise involving Felton
