Yeah, one of the best things about this dynasty IMO is the new looks of many of the teams.

Game three should be up in a couple days, after I finish Bioshock 2 (I'm almost done. The game is so short) Not sure if I'm going to do the 2010-11 season with this, but if not, I'll certainly use your rookies should I start something else.

Warriors' Anthony Randolph Is Most Improved Player
Image April 22, 2010 - Warriors big man Anthony Randolph has been named the NBA's 2009-10 Most Improved Player award. Randolph, 20, has dramatically improved his numbers. In his rookie season last year, he put up 7.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. This year, he is averaging 16.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Furthermore, his Warriors went from 29 wins last season to 47 this year.

The lanky seven-footer was dubbed as a major project going into the draft, but the Warriors scooped him up with the final lottery pick in 2008, and since earning his way into the rotation, he has been sensational. Warriors fans had high hopes for the forward, nicknamed "Meal Ticket", but he has exceeded all expectations, being the league's second leading rebounder, and finishing third in field goal percentage. Randolph is playing in what would be his Junior year of college had he entered the draft, and the sky seems to be the limit for the young man.

Randolph won the award nearly unanimously, earning 117 of the 122 first place votes. Celtics guard Rajon Rondo was a distant second, earning the other five first place nods. Portland forward Carl Landry came in third. Randolph will be presented with the award trophy tomorrow night before the Warriors play game three against the Kings in their conference quarterfinals series, which is tied at a game apiece.

Glad everyone's proud of the Meal Ticket. He's good in this dynasty. Speaking of this dynasty, I'm remembering why I retired it twice... My roster is the product of simming 95% of games and its not fun to use. Honestly, my Clippers dynasty was the most enjoyable that I've done today. Its not the people's favorite, but I just don't enjoy playing Nellieball. I couldn't even get through Game 3 of the playoffs.

Basically, shelved again. :P I'll probably pick it up one of these days and finish the postseason and maybe go through with my grand offseason plans. As for what's next from Lamrock, either nothing, a Blazers dynasty or re-create my Clippers Association, simming up to where I was and updating the rosters so that I have Blake, Trout and Gooden.

Anyway, sorry about the tease.

it's a nice spot to put things on 'park' ;)

but please do BLAZERS. you've mentioned that possibility forever because they're your favorite favorite; they are the perfect team to take to a title (or three?) and i'm sure you could spin the roster enough to make them fun to play and enjoyable to read; i would love to see Roy's development into a superstar and the rivalry/passing-of-the-torch between an aging-Kobe over the seasons

Problem with Nellieball was that I spent 90% of the time on it just making recaps, and rarely played the games. With Clippers I'll do off-season and see how the first could games go. Here's hoping more than keeping it going longer than a month will make it better.

Key word is about. It's several, and I'm probably #2 to you in this respect, but I'm certainly more prolific in picking up old dynasties than starting a constant slew of new ones. And this won't really be a full-fledged dynasty. Just simmed games.

Randolph Scores 32 As Warriors Advance To Conference Semis
by Jim Fayer, Oakland Tribune

April 29, 2010 - It's time to believe again. Three years ago, the Warriors stole game one, then won out at home to advance to the second round, pulling off one of the biggest upsets in playoff history, knocking off the 67-15 Dallas Mavericks... as an 8 seed. Last night's 113-105 victory, while not quite a massive upset, makes this an exciting time for Bay Area hoops fans.

Sacramento and Golden State split the first two games at Arco, with the Warriors winning the first 94-89, and the Kings taking the second 113-92. When the series shifted to the Oracle, there was an absence of "We Believe" T-Shirts, but that didn't stop the Warriors. Fresh off accepting the Most Improved Player award, forward Anthony Randolph went off for 22 points and 17 boards, while holding opposing power forward Carlos Boozer to 13 and 11 en route to a 101-92 win.

An ensemble effort yielded their now legendary 130-125 double-OT game 4 win, despite Randolph fouling out. After the Kings took game 5 with a 113-99 home victory, the "Nellieballers", ran up the scoreboard in the rollercoaster game 6. The Kings seemed to have all the momentum, winning the first quarter 35-22, but the home team got its act together, narrowing the deficit to 56-52 by the half. A barrage of triples opened up a double digit lead for the Warriors in the third, and the Kings would never come within 5 points, as they were held off 113-105.

Anthony "Meal Ticket" Randolph averaged 21.3 points and 12.5 rebounds per game in the series on 57% shooting. Stephen Jackson and Steve Nash contributed 19 and 16 points per game respectively. Rookie Tyreke Evans posed match-up problems for Nelson's Warriors, leading the team with 20.5 points per game, and outshining fellow rookie Ricky Rubio. All-stars Carlos Boozer and Kevin Martin underwhelmed with 17.5 and 14.8 points per game respectively. ESPN statistician John Hollinger listed Randolph as the #3 player in the postseason thus far behind Chris Paul and LeBron James.

The Warriors will face the winner of the "Staples Series" between the Lakers and Clippers, which is currently tied at three games apiece. When asked who he would rather face in the first round, Don Nelson said he wanted the Clippers. "I'm sorry, but you've gotta be nuts to want the Lakers. They are the defending champs! No offense to Shaq and the Clippers, but they are a far easier match-up". The Clippers recovered from a 3-1 series deficit with a narrow victories in games 5 and 6. When asked about whether the 2007 or 2010 Warriors were better, Nelson said "these guys are the best I've ever coached".

|---THE WARRIOR ZONE---|


Around The NBA: May 1, 2010

It has been a very exciting first round of this year's playoffs. Besides the Warriors ousting the Kings, there have been some great series. Three of them went to seven games, and Nuggets-Spurs was truly epic. On the downside, the Lakers managed to finish off the Clippers, and we will be facing them instead of the Clip show in the first round. It should be an exciting first round regardless. Lakers-Warriors, Blazers-Nuggets, Celtics-Bobcats and Magic-Cavaliers all look to be intriguing match-ups.

NBA.com wrote:Lakers Hold Off Clippers 103-93 To Win Staples Series

Image Shaquille O'Neal proved that he had something left in the tank. Unfortunately the the BIg Diesel and the Clippers, it wasn't quite enough. In what Shaq announced was his final playoff run, his Clippers bounced back from a 3-1 deficit to force a game 7 against his former team (in which he won three championships). In front of 20 thousand Laker fans and Billy Crystal, the Lakers recovered from a seven point deficit at the half to oust the Clippers 103-93, earning the right to face the Golden State Warriors in the second round, whom the Lakers swept the season series with. Following the game, O'Neal received a standing ovation. His #34 jersey is expected to be retired by the Lakers.

Lakers win series 4-3


NBA.com wrote:Rasheed, Nuggets Stun Spurs in OT

Image After losing in double overtime, then being blown out by 26 in game 2 seemed like it would be yet another first round loss to the Spurs for Denver. However, the energetic Nuggets went home and tied the series, with a pair of exciting victories. That momentum carried over into a stunning 101-94 win in San Antonio. The veteran Spurs responded with a blowout win in the Mile High City to force a game 7. With the odds stacked against them, the Nuggets got help from an unexpected source: Rasheed Wallace. After having scored just 20 points total in the other three games in San Antonio, Wallace exploded for 25 as his Nuggets defeated the Spurs 110-105. The Nuggets advance to the second round, while Tim Duncan and the Spurs have a long Summer ahead of them.

NBA.com wrote:Blazers Oust Disappointing Rockets In Game 5

Image Following their offseason acquisition of superstar power forward Chris Bosh, many expected the Houston Rockets to contend for the NBA title. Injuries, reported chemistry issues and some bad breaks led to a 46 win season. Finally healthy, and matched up with a defensively weak Portland Trailblazers team, some expected them to pull off the upset. Didn't happen. The Blazers, who ESPN analyst John Hollinger dubbed "the best offensive team ever", destroyed the Rockets, defeating them in five quick games. Bosh and Yao Ming combined to average just under 32 points per game, while Brandon Roy and Danny Granger combined for nearly 50 a night. After this defeat, it is doubtful that Bosh, a free agent, will re-sign with the Rockets this Summer.

NBA.com wrote:Celtics Bounce Back from 3-1 Deficit, Oust Nets

Image The 37-45 New Jersey Nets drew comparison to the 2007 "We Believe" Warriors in the first four games of this series, dominating the Celtics with a brand of fast-paced basketball to take a 3-1 lead. A blowout game 5 win by Boston halted New Jersey's momentum, and Boston took games 6 and 7 handily, to secure a date with the Charlotte Bobcats in the next round. Vince Carter and Devin Harris averaged 25 and 23 points per game respectively in the first four games, but just 14 and 15 in the final three. When asked about the shift in game 5, Doc Rivers said "we were playing their game, for some reason, and that's not our game. In game 5 we slowed them down, and they couldn't do anything".

Image With the Bobcats' 104-99 victory over the highly touted Chicago Bulls in game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, Michael Jordan('s team) has defeated the franchise he won six titles with. The series opened with the Bobcats blowing out the Bulls in Chicago. The Bulls recovered with a game 2 victory followed by a Jordan-esque game-winner by Derrick Rose in the third game. Then, the Bobcat's vaunted defense went to work, holding the Bulls to under 45% from the field in games 4, 5 and 6, all Bobcat victories. The morning after the Bobcats' win, Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro was fired.

Image Could the Hawks' luck have been any worse? They lose the first two games in Cleveland by a possession each, leading scorer Joe Johnson goes down in game 3 with a strained MCL, and they get swept by LeBron and the Cavaliers. The Hawks were in complete control of game 3 following a pair of narrow losses, leading 35-22 before Johnson went down. With Johnson sidelined, the Cavaliers would come back to win 91-87, then took game 4 96-82. Johnson was remorseful about the injury. "It's just the worst timing, you know? Right before a new contra- I mean during the postseason." The Cavaliers will advance to play the Orlando Magic in the conference semis.

The defending conference champs blew out the Raptors in the first two games, thanks to the dynamic duo (Chris Paul and Dwight Howard)'s efforts. When the series shifted to Toronto, they shut them down there too, limiting the league's fourth highest scoring team under 95 points yet again. Tracy McGrady, a former Magic player, scored a season high 40 points, keeping the Raptors in the game. However, the Magic shot 57%, and a late barrage of treys helped Orlando complete the sweep. The Magic will play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference semis.

|---THE WARRIOR ZONE---|


End Of Season Awards Roundup

The NBA Conference Semis are among us, and all of the end of season award winners have been revealed. Save for Kobe Bryant's MVP (which has ESPN's John Hollinger livid), and the seemingly backwards executive and coach winners, they haven't been too surprising. A pair of Warriors took honors. Anthony Randolph became our third Most Improved Player in eight years, and Liam Washburn won executive of the year. Personally, I felt that Don Nelson should have won the coach of the year award with Dunleavy taking the Executive award, but I can't complain.

NBA.com wrote:Warriors' Anthony Randolph Is Most Improved Player

Image April 22, 2010 - Warriors big man Anthony Randolph has been named the NBA's 2009-10 Most Improved Player award. Randolph, 20, has dramatically improved his numbers. In his rookie season last year, he put up 7.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. This year, he is averaging 16.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Furthermore, his Warriors went from 29 wins last season to 47 this year. Read More


NBA.com wrote:Suns' Jrue Holiday Wins Rookie Of The Year Award

Image April 19, 2010 - Phoenix Suns point guard Jrue Holiday has reportedly won the 2009-10 NBA Rookie Of The Year award. The 19 year old former UCLA Bruin averaged 12.2 points per game, and led all rookies with 7.7 assists as well. Holiday played and started 80 games for the Suns, who lost starting PG and two-time MVP Steve Nash to free agency in the offseason. Despite the team losing four of its five starters from last season (Grant Hill and Shaquille O'Neal to the Clippers, Nash to the Warriors, Amar'e Stoudemire to the Bulls), Holiday has helped them over-achieve to an adequate 34-48 record...

NBA.com wrote:Nate Robinson Named Kia Sixth Man Of The Year

Image April 25, 2010 - After helping the Charlotte Bobcats secure their first playoff berth in franchise history, leading the team with just under 18 points per game, Nate Robinson has won the 2010 Kia Sixth Man Of The Year award. Robinson, 25, signed with the Bobcats as a free agent last Summer, and has made an instant impact. In addition to his scoring, Robinson has also averaged 4 assists per game off the bench. Robinson came off the bench in 65 out of 82 games, and averaged 26.6 minutes a night. Robinson will receive the award in Charlotte prior to game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Charlie Villanueva of the Portland Trailblazers and Mehmet Okur of the Memphis Grizzlies finished second and third respectively.


NBA.com wrote:Dwight Howard Named Kia Defensive Player Of The Year

Image April 27, 2010 - For the second consecutive year, Dwight Howard has won the 2010 Kia Defensive Player of the Year award. Howard, 24, became the first player in NBA history to lead the league in both rebounding and blocks for two consecutive seasons, with 12.0 and 2.9 per game respectively. Howard led the Magic to 54 wins and their third consecutive division title. The voting was far from unanimous however, with the Celtics' Rajon Rondo finishing a close second, with Cleveland's LeBron James a distant third. Howard's Orlando Magic finished second in the league at defensive rating behind the Boston Celtics.


NBA.com wrote:Warriors' Liam Washburn Named 2010 Executive Of The Year

April 28, 2010 - Following a league-best 18 game single season turnaround for the Golden State Warriors, which saw them improve from the lottery to the 5th seed in the Western Conference, rookie general manager has won the 2010 NBA Executive of the Year award. Washburn, 28, made major alterations to the team, ultimately retaining just four of the original players from the roster. Notable moves by Washburn include signing two-time MVP Steve Nash, drafting Ricky Rubio and acquiring the Blazers' Rudy Fernandez in one of two blockbuster three-team trades. Despite the death of leading scorer Monta Ellis the Warriors still won 47 games, and will have the cap space to sign a max free agent this offseason. Mike Dunleavy of the Los Angeles Clippers and Otis Smith of the Orlando Magic finished second and third respectively.


NBA.com wrote:Clippers' Mike Dunleavy Named Coach of the Year

April 30, 2010 - From being nearly fired in January to being coach of the year, it has been a pivotal three months for Dunleavy and the Clippers. Posting a 24-10 record from February to April, the Clippers turned their season around, securing their first playoff spot since 2006. The turning point for the season seemed to be when Dunleavy acquired Shaquille O'Neal from the Phoenix Suns. Interestingly enough, the Warriors' Don Nelson finished as the runner-up for this award, while Dunleavy finished second to Golden State's Liam Washburn for the executive of the year award. The Lakers' Phil Jackson finished third. This award is Mike Dunleavy's second.


NBA.com wrote:Lakers' Kobe Bryant Wins 2010 Kia Most Valuable Player Award

Image May 2, 2010 - In what was the closest MVP race in NBA history, the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant has narrowly edged out Cleveland's LeBron James for his second MVP award. Bryant, 31, averaged 27.4 points per game, a career high 6.4 assists per game and 5.4 rebounds per game as he led the Lakers to a league-best 61-21 record. Bryant, who last won the award in 2008, beat out James by just six points, and actually finished with one less first place vote. James, the 2008-09 MVP, had higher stats nearly across the board, but his Cavaliers finished with a disappointing 51-31 record. Bryant will accept his award prior to game 2 against the Golden State Warriors at the Staples Center.

It's been six months since the last story update, so here's chapter 5. The story's shark-jumpery continues, only with less jokes.

Nellieball Chronicles


Chapter 6: Exit Monta, Enter Montaveli

Liam Washburn was bogged down. Though he won the Executive of the Year award, his Warriors were trailing 3-1 in their conference semifinals series against the Los Angeles Lakers, and already off-season changes were being requested. "Bring in Amar'e", Steve Nash pressured. Rashard Lewis is our center of the future. We need him", Don Nelson insisted.

He knew that he couldn't do both without dealing star player Anthony Randolph, and with Stoudemire's marquee player status and Rashard's Magic looking like title favorites, these tasks were looking impossible. Throw in a developing pill addiction, Stephen Jackson constantly complaining about weed being stolen from his locker and visions of the deceased Monta Ellis, and Liam was truly fucked.

Don Nelson wasn't doing much better. A pair of blowout losses in Los Angeles saw the team start to fall apart. They were playing into his system, chucking threes at a rapid pace, but were making less than a quarter of them. Simply put, they became every other Don Nelson coached team. The Warriors narrowly won game 3 against a barely trying Laker team, but lost their first home game of the post-season by 25 after Nelson benched Andris Biedrins and Anthony Randolph in the second half due to their lack of three-point shooting. (Stephen Jackson played the five)

"I'm telling you Liam, for Nellieball to work, we need a five to stretch the floor. A guy like Al Harrington or Raef LaFrentz!", the old coach said to GM Washburn.

Liam pinched the bridge of his nose. "So a power forward that shoots threes? Let me reiterate Don. Antawn Jamison and Troy Murphy never want to play here again, Rashard Lewis is too expensive, and I'm pretty sure Antoine Walker's legs were broken by a loan shark. Finish up the season and I'll see what I do. Plus, the trade and free agency deadlines have passed, it being the fucking playoffs. Don't you have some coaching to do", Washburn snapped.

"Ohhhh real professional Liam. Mr. young know-nothing thinks he can tell me what to do. I'm going to the bar", replied Nelson.

"Perfect," Liam said as he trudged towards the practice court to run yet another practice session. His failure to hire an assistant coach replacement for Ben Bailey has led to him leading a quasi-role as assistant.

Following practice, he once again saw a man with a familiar face wearing a hoodie. "Monta!", he shouted, before the man sped off. Liam went after him, determined. He chases the figure all around the facility, before it tripped on the stairs.

"OW MY ACL!", the man pouted in what was undoubtedly Monta Ellis's.

Liam sprinted down the stairs to help him. "Monta? What are you doing here? I thought you were dead," Liam said, helping him up.

"No... nobody was supposed to find out yet," replied Monta. "You see, my rap career had faltered a bit. Tha Dopeboy IV got a Metascore of 6 and being in C'Mon Son turned out to be bad publicity. So, I took some advice from my good friend Tupac, and faked my death. As a result, Dopeboy has gone Platinum!"

"Tupac, huh? Well, why have you been coming back here?", Liam asked.

"Well, I haven't been receiving paychecks, you see, and my cut of Tha Dopeboy IV proceeds are going to charity, the fuckers. I've been stealing Stephen's weed and training for my comeback," Monta replied, matter-of-factly.

Liam replied, "I see. Well, you know your contract is void, on account of you being dead, right?"

"That hasn't been finalized yet. I'ma come back and win all the awards next year!"

Liam then realized the implications of this: the team would no longer have the cap to afford a max contract player in the offseason, and he would likely be fired for letting such an event go down. "Sounds good. You know, we, uh, made an, um, recording studio in the basement in your honor," Liam said.

Monta was excited. "Ohhh shit son. Let's check that out!"

"Let's," Liam said, before leading the shooting guard into the basement, then locking him in there.

"Man, this is cold, man. Do you know who I am? I am Monta Ellis, bitch!", Monta complained.

"Write me a list of your favorite foods under half an inch in diameter so I can slip it under the door tonight. Stay sharp, Monta!", Liam said, returning to work with a sinister grin on his face.

Meanwhile...

Don Nelson was attempting to rally his troops for game 5 against the Lakers. "Okay, we're down 3-1. No matter what -hic, happens, we'll always -hic have Vegas. Now go out there and hit some long range jump shots!"

"Here here!", Stephen Jackson said, setting his pistol down and running on to the court.
