I will be using my 2006 Roster Mod On NBA 2K11 for this. That means D-League, and it means the best and most realistic gameplay of any NBA 2K. More details to come!

Coming In October

Awesome!

2004-2008 were my favorite NBA years. I especially loved 2006, and it remains my favorite draft despite notoriously being known as one of the worst.

Thanks for commenting! I think you'll love this Dynasty, and the Roster Mod when it gets released. Do you still play 2k11?

LARRY LEGEND

Image

By the end of the winter of 2006, Adam Morrison was one of the most famous athletes, college, pro or otherwise, in America. Or maybe he was one of the most famous people in America. It was tough to tell if you were in the Northwest during the mania of that year. There was a national curiosity with Spokane's unlikely hoops hero, the magnitude of which was hard to gauge.

Morrison was leading the nation in scoring, often doing so with an intensity and throwback style that made him the darling of SportsCenter and old school hoop fanatics.
Basketball fans were captivated and lobbed haphazard Larry Bird comparisons. The narrative of that season followed Morrison and Duke's J.J. Redick as they battled for the scoring title, Player of the Year honours and other accolades. The two eventually would wind up sharing the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Rival student sections, however, ruthlessly mocked him. Maybe those kids had it out for the guy because of the moustache or the hair, but more likely, it was the fact that, as he did at Loyola Marymount on a February afternoon that season, he could drop 37 points on your team — in one half.
Gonzaga, Spokane and specifically Adam Morrison became the center of the college basketball world for a time. For Morrison, it was more than he bargained for when he set out to play college basketball.

"I enjoyed the basketball part of it, but not the insanity of not being able to go anywhere. I felt like I couldn't go anywhere without stopping 15 times for a photo or an autograph," says Morrison.

While he weathered what he called a "circus," some looked at his approach to the notoriety and labelled Morrison an introvert. Or worse, some even called him rude if he — just 21 years old and largely unprepared for the fame — didn't respond how people expected.
"I'm not saying I'm not grateful, but if you came across wrong to one person, then you're a jerk to the whole city," he says.

4am Morrisons Home - Spokane - One Week Before NBA Draft

Adam Morrison awoke to the sound of the phone ringing in my ears, something he had grown quite accustomed to after a summer with Reggie Miller organising his workouts. He expected it to be Reggie, but it was a voice with a strong Indiana twang. He didn't recognise him at first but as he spoke it became quite clear.

"Adam?" His voice echoed in Adam's ear.
"Yes Sir? What is it?" Adam asked.

"Well, I hear you have been working hard behind the scenes, getting ready for your first NBA Season."
"What? How do you know this? Reggie is sworn to silence on that. Is this one of Reggies friends?" Adam said.

"Oh it has a little to do with Reggie alright. He's got a lot of pull around these parts. I bumped into him last week and he said I should bring you over for a workout."
"Really? I'll be honest with you I have no idea who I am speaking too, It is 4am though Sir. The timing is a little unusual. But if this is a serious call I'd like to know!" Adam sai

"Sheesz Kid Its Larry Bird. And yes this sure as hell is a serious phone call. I'm sure you are aware we have had a spate of injuries this season."

"Mr Bird, I'm incredibly sorry, I'm only half awake here. Can you give me a moment to get out of bed?" Adam said.

Adam put the call on hold, and jumped out of bed quietly. Don't want to wake the wife or the kids. He looks in the mirror in the bathroom, and throw some water on his face. He can't believe his childhood idol is waiting on the other line of the phone.

"Wow Mr Bird, Now this is out of nowhere." Adam said.

"Listen I've been talking to Reggie and he has been pushing you really hard. I've been keeping tabs on you for over 2 years now. Over here in Indiana. I think you have the potential to shake up this league. I think we have a lot in common, or at least SportsCenter seemed to think so!"

"Yeah well I never believed the hype but to mentioned in the same breath as you is certainly an honour Mr Bird, your game truly inspired mine." Adam said.

"Well if your interested, I can arrange some flights over here. Will your family be ok if you come over for a few days before the draft? There are some guys and trainers I want you to work with here. I know there are several other teams interested in you, namely the Blazers, and The Celtics."

"I have my notebook somewhere. I'll sort it out with them tomorrow Sir." Adam said.

"Hey Adam, no matter what happens, just relax and let your game do the talking."

"Thanks Mr Bird" Adam said.

"Call me Larry, kid. Good night."

It was unbelievable, Adam couldn't believe what I was hearing. After all the work he put in, after allthey dedication to my studies and this training, it might finally be his time, but did Larry Bird really plan on trading up to take him in the draft, and make him a Pacer?

The phone clicked, as the dial tone rang in Adam's ear. The NBA season is three months away
