D-Rob is looking rough out there with only 6.8 rebounds. J.R. may also be overrated in your league at that point in his career (if you care about sim stats). He was good in the earlier stages of his career and even post playing with Robinson he was good, however, with Robinson, the man had an average rebounding for his half-season that year. My assumption, from not watching him as extensively, would be the Spurs used him to boxout more as Robinson freely moved for rebounds. Depending on your comfort with the balance in your rosters and game, and proceed with some caution here, but you might want to lower his stats a bit while on the Spurs (again if realism in your sim stats is something you care about) to match that. Also, you may want to look at Will Perdue's rebounding stats as well. He was a really good rebounder for the Spurs. To give context, when talking Rebounding Rate using 2K's ratings (I'm not having any 2K systems in play to have to balance around and also having the scope be only 1996): Rodman is the only 99 (which in '96 he and Jayson Williams would probably be the only 90+ rebounders in real-life), Robinson should probably be around a 76 rebounder (he was top 10 in the league, but this would give realistic gap saying how great Rodman really was in 1996). Will Perdue should be around a 79 and Reid should probably be in the 55 range (Total Rebounding % in 1996: Rodman: 26.6, Williams: 23.8, Robinson 18.4, Perdue: 19.3, Reid: 10.7). Perdue was a notch above Robinson that year when looking at his ability while on the floor, he just didn't play a lot of minutes comparing the two. Again, ignore this suggestion if the sim stats don't bother you too much, also, if you don't want to make roster changes like that, ignore what I'm saying. I suspect you would have to change the entire roster if you wanted it to match perfectly to '96 as 1996 really went, and I also suspect in 2K14's system that is ridiculously hard to match as the rules were able to be changed and versatile sliders need to be taken in the count to make the numbers match the hypothetical math I just pulled and still be fun. Keep in mind, the ratings may have a bigger scope depending on the mod as well. If using all-time as a scope for example, in my hypothetical math, I'd make my scale lower for the 90s in ratings so that could be what was done in the roster and Robinson would probably have an 81 for instance in 1996 instead of the 76. Also, the balance of fun-factor has to be calculated for and embellished a little (no one wants to play an average rebounding Kevin Garnett, despite him not being a great rebounder yet at 19 unless they care about sim). The balance could easily get broken with the changes I'm suggesting here depending on the scope the roster is using and how the rest of the roster was built. So, to be blunt, despite my suggestion, I'd probably not want to make any major changes unless you have a great handle on balance and why things "tick" as they do. :)

Anyway, looking good otherwise! We'll see if the Spurs can pick up this downswing. I think if Robinson can get more Offensive Rebounds to give him close shots at the basket his PPG numbers should go up as well which would help the Spurs' win column. The Cavs were mean that year though in perimeter play. Depending on the schemes and rules you are playing with (2K14 has zones, I think you can remove them, but it would push players out instead of in with zones), the Spurs could counter that by pushing everything to Robinson for easier off-the-ball blocks, closer rebounding, and better rim protection. That could be an easier solution for that team.

That is noted bro, I know the numbers you are seeing are not what they are supposed to be, but the stats you are seeing now are not the one when I started the season because the original file got corrupted, including the backup. It sucks right?


So I had to sim just to get to the date where I stopped, David Robinson had some injury during the sim that affected his performance, hence the low rpg, the same goes for the rest of the league.

Thanks for the input nonetheless.

Cleveland Cavaliers have big issues to address, and has to do it quickly, Cavs fell to the Spurs in a close game 112-107.

The San Antonio Spurs have three wins now while the Cleveland Cavaliers are in three game losing skid, and have a tall order to overcome as they go up against next to the undefeated Bulls.

Sean Elliott led the Spurs with 39 points, scoring perfect of 6 out of 6 from3-point area.

"I'm real confident in my shot. Worked on it a lot this summer," Elliott said.

"When I made the first three, I know it's a special night. My teammates telling to keep shooting it. Just knowing that they have that confidence in me, it would be selfish of me to pass up shots when they find me wide open."

David Robinson and J.R. Reid dominated the boards with a combination of 30 rebounds, more than half of team's total.

"He (Elliott) was the hot scorer," Robinson said. "while JR took care of the rebounds actually because I had to try blocking the shots."


Chris Mills led the Cavs with 25 points while Terrell Brandon just one assist shy to have double double 23 points ad 9 assists.

"You never want to lose any game, but especially when you were able to come back from got a solid lead but give them credit," Cavs coach Mike Fratello said.

This is awesome. Can you please share how can I replicate it on my end? Is it a matter of updating the audio id’s in the roster file?

If you can confirm the audio id’s for the players in your video (Ceballos, Smits, McKey, Muresan, etc.) it would be great. I assume it is just a matter of updating the roster file with these values, right?

1. Go to REDMC, Last_Names tab
2. Replace last name that you like but make sure to follow alphabetical order
Name - AudioID1-2
Ceballos 3187
Dumas 3192
Lang 3558
Mckey 384
Muresan 3331
Smits 3233

It worked! Thank you so much sir. A couple of follow ups:
1. Do you happen to know the audio id for Scott Burrell?
2. What BIN file you checked for the names and how did you open it?
