For real? Did you pass the first time? Still about a month away from results so I’ve been sweating it. Would hate to retake it in February.

I appreciate it. I’m happy to do it and there was more support than backlash so I thank you and others for that.

No, not me Brandon. I've had enough experience with lawyers to know that it's not my cup of tea (no offense). My best friend, sister in-law and father in-law are all lawyers. I run a record label and have been an artist/executive for almost the last 20 years; hence, the music refence in a previous post. Good luck with the bar exam. What type of law?

Wow surrounded by lawyers, no wonder you knew to avoid it! I’ll be working state government for the time being but might transition to private practice if plans change.

Your record label/executive position sounds extremely official. Do you work with local acts or is it bigger than that? I’ve heard the music industry is difficult to break into.

I work with local, national and international acts. The music industry is much easier to get into now than it was when I got signed 20 some odd years ago. More platforms, broader distribution means for independent acts and also more publicists that work with independent acts. It still remains a bit challenging to garner the attention of major labels but far easier to make waves as an indie artist.

Would your draft class also include portraits for the rookies? Thanks anyways if it doesn't.

It includes it for some. Mostly hit or miss depending on who had good portraits. You’ll have the college portraits so it’s more compatible as a draft class. The roster files will include NBA portraits for rookies.

Is it okay if I make some portraits that is compatible to your draft class face IDs for release in case others want to use them? I was just going to use some of NBA's headshots they have for rookies and some other outside resources

Not a problem at all. You can post them here or start your own thread if you prefer. Once I release the project, it’s free for the community to run with. I look forward to whatever improvements you can provide.

I’ll release an excel sheet with the IDs so people can use their own faces if they prefer others work.

Ehi mate! And what about the players' contracts in your rosters? Will they be updated for the 19-20 season? It would be so important for a MyLeague mod, trying to rebuild some team. Thanks for your huge work! (Y)

Gonna try like hell. That’s the last piece to be done but it’s also the most tedious.

That’s the plan. I’ve got about 15 teams fully updated, including added cyberfaces, tattoos, and portraits. It includes lots of guys 2k neglected and many 2-way players. I’m going to hopefully work on the latter half this week. Draft class for sure is out this weekend, roster may be pushing it.

Draft Class is live now via 2kshare!

Name: Real 2019 Draft

User: bluejaybrandon

I'll be uploading the cyberface and portrait pack either later tonight or tomorrow. But now, people can import the class into their MyLeagues. I may amend it to add a few prospects later.

Thank you, Brandon! Clearly a lot of hard work.

Is there a science to your rating system? It's pretty far off base from 2k's 2k20 rookie ratings, and generally far lower (for most players) than your average rookie class. Then you gave players like Louis King (undrafted) ratings as high as some first rounders (if I'm not mistaken). Ratings are obviously subjective but these seem a bit skewed.

Really was hoping for a release of the cyberfaces today and I'm still holding out hope for a release this evening. There's some pretty awesome second rounders and undrafted free agents who haven't been released otherwise.

Thanks again!

Ratings are lower than 2k because the thought it is that you’ll be drafting the players then advancing. They’ll receive an in-game bump between years of about 1 or 2 points on average. I also think 2ks ratings are questionable. My ratings are based off of a combination of mock drafts. Louis King was often mocked in the lottery at the start of the year. In my roster he is adjusted to account for being an undrafted two-way player. But the draft class is different by keeping him relatively high, it will reflect the mocks throughout the season in your MyLeague mocks. Also some players have higher overalls based off of “intangibles” rating boost, but their actual attributes reflect a lower overall. Kinda like a “gem/bust” system. And quite frankly some of it is my own personal bias from watching tape.

If you feel they aren’t reflective of how you want your MyLeague draft to progress, by all means mix them around. I’m just trying to give the pieces, you are all free to switch it around how you see fit.

I see...

It's okay - I'm actually not using your ratings for My League. I watch a ton of tape and read about every scouting report and mock draft there is (was). I've constructed my own ratings system - so I started the 19-20 season months ago w my own draft class. I was just interested to see if there was a particular formula applied.

Very detailed work on your end, though. The signatures and tendencies look good.
