That's weird. Did they abruptly retire or something?

I don't really know what happened. None of them were listed on the retirements screen, but when free agency came around they were just gone. I had to add 60 players back in, although probably half were just summer league players who ended up getting waived anyway.

After every season the game usually retires a bunch of players who have been on the free agents list all season. But these ones had been playing. It was just weird.

But that is why I like the create-a-player feature. My efforts at achieving realism would have been ruined if that many players had just prematurely retired :lol:

Odd. The game does prune free agents just like NBA Live used to, but usually not the higher rated ones. At least you were able to bring them back, though as you said, it's a shame they're imperfect copies as far as career stats.

27/3/20

Charlotte Hornets [22-50] vs Oklahoma City Thunder [24-47]

Thunder's future is on display as Gilgeous-Alexander and Bazley take down Hornets

Image


CHA | 30 | 31 | 30 | 30 | 121 |
OKC | 36 | 29 | 39 | 33 | 139 |

Player of the Game: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
(40pts, 5reb, 10ast, 2stl)

(16-24 FG, 2-2 3PT, 6-7 FT)

Simmed Game

CHI | 17 | 26 | 16 | 17 | 76 |
OKC | 31 | 26 | 13 | 22 | 92 |

POTG: Chris Paul (20pts, 2reb, 8ast, 1stl)


Record: 26-47



These wins basically end our slim hopes of finishing with the worst record in the league. Oh well :wink:


It's taken me most of the season to figure out SGA's game, but I think I'm finally getting it. His quick first step allows him to get past his defender and get to the rim to score quite easily.

Losing with honour, rather than shamefully tanking, I say.

That would've been an enjoyable win over the Lakers, but obviously not an easy feat to accomplish. At least SGA outscored LeBron!
