Wow! Instagram looks amazing! (Y)

Were you planning on doing that before the first few games or did you just stumble on good screenshots which you realized could make this?

Thanks man! A little bit of both :mrgreen: when I was thinking of a layout for the recaps, I wanted to post several pics. When I finished making it, I saw I got a lot I didn't use so I thought of a quick way to share them, nothing better than an Instagram page. I remember 2K10 (or was it 2K11?) that had the game pressbook and it was easier.

You do all the planning to try and stop LeBron, but then Caldwell-Pope drops 37 like that. Unlucky.

It's a shame that Ibaka didn't go beast mode for you like he did IRL against the Lakers.

It's a good birthday for Lonzo. :lol:

Wow, in one game the Lakers dethroned your top offensive FG%. It must be a really tight race in your NBA for dominance early on.

Despite the loss, it appears like the Lakers just caught fire with KCP and LeBron's triple dub as you were experimenting to see how much of an option your front court can be. While losses can be rough, this one seems kind of a throwaway. At least judging from how you wrote the Stan Lee (love the usage here) article.

He did go beast mode tonight. Much needed. But I'm really surprised with Jonas, I find it easy to score with him and he's great on the boards.

Lakers looking tough really early in the season. Hopefully they start getting some losses, want to keep this realistic :mrgreen: KCP was just unstoppable. Always open. I didn't want to put Kawhi on him because Bron would torch me (he kind of did, anyway.)

Pretty good start for the Raptors. Great job on the presentation!

Thanks Andrew. Looking good so far, but it's still early, hopefully there won't be any important injuries. Knock on wood.

Tough loss, a tall order to come back after that first quarter.

Looks like it was a brutal first half in Utah. But going 4-2 on against those western teams is still a great effort.

Winning in Oakland, San Antonio, Denver and Portland is very nice (Y)

ladies and gentlemen...

back in early 2010s, there were tons of stories here, and only a few survived. however the most notorious and pertinacious story creator was Thierry, with the name spiderxx7 today.

however I remember that your last story went for more than a season. great to see you around again, these photoshop outputs reminded me of one.

i'm sure that you can make this a multi-season story, because you did that with spurs IIRC

It was difficult after that first quarter, but yeah, 4-2, a win at Golden State, and Lowry was injured for a few games, so I can't complain.

Murat, thanks a lot for taking the time and commenting! Wow, those were different times, truly. :mrgreen: While I'm putting a lot of effort on this one, I think my Spurs were my most ambitious story. I made like 40 threads before that! And then I was able to play all 82, make videos for all of them, the NCAA mod including some of you, even using the D-League... it all paid off. Using my favourite team at the time helped for sure, but now that Manu has retired, I felt that I had to move on as well and start to suffer a little :lol: with the Knicks. I will always have a soft spot for the Spurs, anyway.

I would love to do a second season here, the Raps are interesting. I'm simming most of the games (I only played 3/9 so far) so that helps.

Solid win on throwback night. I might have to copy that idea at some point :wink:

They're not going to win a lot of games shooting 1/17 from beyond the arc. You walked all over them in the second half!
