NBA 2K11 | Blue Collar: A Detroit Pistons Association Story (2-0)

BLUE COLLAR
A Detroit Pistons Association Story


October 1, 2010 - The 2010-11 season opener couldn't get any closer after one of the most eventful NBA off-seasons in history. Unfortunately, it wasn't as eventful for the Detroit Pistons. Aside from drafting promising talents in Greg Monroe and Terrico White, the organization had only made one off-season signing in Tracy McGrady, the former superstar whose injuries had finally caught up with his on-court performance.

Coming off their first 50-loss season since 2001 and with a team sale looming, will the Pistons continue their losing ways and bad decisions, or will the next Pistons owner inherit a team that regained their winning culture?


Association Info:
Platform: PC
Roster Used: Darth-Skinett's UAR Ver 9.9x (No Injuries)
Difficulty: All-Star
Game Style: Custom (Thierry's Sliders V2)
Season and Playoff Length: 82 Games, 7-7-7-7
Quarter Length (In-game and Sim): 12 Minutes
Injuries: Yes

Current Roster:
C - Ben Wallace
PF - Charlie Villanueva
SF - Tayshaun Prince
SG - Richard Hamilton
PG - Rodney Stuckey
===============
6 - Ben Gordon
7 - Tracy McGrady
8 - Will Bynum
9 - Jason Maxiell
10 - Greg Monroe
11 - Jonas Jerebko
12 - Austin Daye
Res - Chris Wilcox
Res - Dajuan Summers
Res - Terrico White
===============
Coach: John Kuester

Author's Note:
I've chosen to use UAR v9.9x for the roster file since it was released during the 2011 NBA finals, thus containing updated ratings for all players while including undrafted rookies like Jeremy Lin and Ish Smith. The final official Living Rosters aren't playable for Assoc mode, compelling me to find and use the UAR.

Ever since I've lurked this site back in 2006, I was amazed not only by the mods (called "patches" back in the day) the community creates, but also the dynasty stories being posted here. At this point in time, I believe I now have an opportunity to create an association story of my own. I'm very open to suggestions to improve, so let me know by posting here.

Thanks, Breems! Your dynasty thread is among the many factors that inspired me to make this.

Cool beans; good to see another random throwback story as well, as I've recently dipped back to NBA Live 10. Breems inspired me to start that as well.

You have T-Mac; I have a slightly better T-Mac, but we both have old T-Mac's. :lol:

Good to see Thierry's ghost live on in the form of sliders. :lol:

Watching old T-Mac saddened me, but it was glad to see him don a Pistons uniform at the very least.

I never knew about the legend of Thierry until I read the older Stories threads. It was quite an education :lol:

Making his first season appearance for the Nets, Deron Williams acquires 13 points and 8 assists.

Center Brook Lopez also achieves a double-double with 13 points and 11 assists. Notable contributions include Travis Outlaw with 19 points and Anthony Morrow earning 18 points while shooting 4/10 from beyond the arc.

Coach John Kuester praised his Pistons squad during the post-game interview, commending them for starting the season on a positive note.

Cool start. (Y) T-Mac is back baby. :) At the very least you should be able to compete for the eighth seed, but you'll still be stuck in no-man's land all the same.

Good start, and nice idea including results from around the league. I regret not doing that more often in my old Dynasty topics, meaning they felt very centred on my team. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it's great to have more context of what's going on with the rest of the NBA outside of the monthly recaps.

I got the idea of including other game results from the local newspaper's format, although I was honestly surprised with that many games occuring on the same night.

Here are the highlights from the Pistons-Nets game, inspired by Youtuber Ximo Pierto's format:

Happy weekend, NLSC! We got our second game recap for this storyline:


Detroit Wins Home Opener vs. Oklahoma City
by JuicyShaqMeat | October 29, 2010


Image


AUBURN HILLS, MI. -- Clear skies were upon The Palace as the Detroit Pistons defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 99-82.

Second-unit guard Ben Gordon gets the highest points with 19, while starter Rodney Stuckey finishes with a double-double, 18 points and 10 assists. Other starters scoring more than 10 include Richard Hamilton (18), Tayshaun Prince (12) and Charlie Villanueva (11), while Ben Wallace makes 11 rebounds.

Last year's scoring champion Kevin Durant fills up the stat sheet with 23 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks all in 40 minutes. He also finishes the game without any turnovers. Thabo Sefolosha, James Harden and Serge Ibaka contribute double-digit performances with 16, 12 and 10 respectively. Rebounding seems pedestrian for Kendrick Perkins, making 13 boards tonight.

"Winning our first season game was great," says Gordon after the contest. "But that was in [New] Jersey. Winning the second at home is even greater."

PISTONS, 99 - Gordon 19, Hamilton 18, Stuckey 18, Prince 12, Villanueva 11, Maxiell 7, McGrady 4, Wallace 4, Daye 2, Jerebko 2, Monroe , Bynum 0
THUNDER, 82 - Durant 23, Sefolosha 16, Harden 12, Ibaka 10, Westbrook 8, Maynor 7, Perkins 4, Aldrich 2, Mohammed 0, Cook 0, Collison 0
Box score: 22-23, 43-43, 72-59, 99-82


Game results from across the league:
IND 95, CHA 111
SAC 90, NJ 122
ATL 99, PHI 118
CLE 88, TOR 91
MIL 98, MIN 80
DEN 103, NO 98
NY 93, BOS 109
MEM 113, DAL 129
LAC 98, GS 81
LAL 103, PHO 100
ORL 108, MIA 116


I'll post this game's highlight reel soon. Stay tuned!

It's a shame what happened to Gordon. For a while there, when he was with the Bulls, he was my favourite player.

Back then, I thought he resembled Kobe a little bit. I kinda felt bad relegating him on the bench every time I insert a created Jordan to the Bulls in Live 2005.

I dunno if I'm remembering it correctly, but didn't you use to rock a banner sig featuring the past (MJ), the present (Gordon) and the future (Rose)?

*flashback Friday vibes* :mrgreen:

I forgot how many guards this team really had. Gordon, T-Mac, Hamilton, Stuckey. This team was kind of stacked at mid-to-lower-tier shooting guards for the time.

Was thinking the same. Three of those players were damn near elite... I don't think Stuckey ever reached his potential.

Nice job keeping Harden and Westbrook to a combined 20 points.

It's cool seeing all those familiar names playing in that game. Brings back good memories of my Live 10 OKC game :)

Thank you for the kind comments and replies, everyone! Nostalgia truly is a strong force.

Sorry I took a while to post this, but nevertheless, the highlights of the Pistons-Thunder game are now available for your viewing pleasure:

That intro really was nostalgic for me. I forgot that 2K did that!

Watching the highlights, it seemed Perk & Thabo were bigger threats than KD and Westbrook, was that the case?

Nah, Durant was a total beast in this game, I just couldn't stop him. But with Westbrook contained, Thabo shot the lights out in this game with 6-of-11 shooting (1-of-3 from beyond the arc), while Perkins dominated the boards (3 of his 13 rebounds were on offense).
