Starting in 2002-2003, with LeBron, Wade and Melo waiting in the next Draft. Baby Bulls.

(I know you want me to succeed. I think something really special could happen here. Go ahead and send me any bad luck wishes you have.)

That's a tough team to play with. I remember planning to do so in NBA Live 2003, and quickly losing my enthusiasm for it. Then again, NBA Live 2003's gameplay did have something to do with that as well.

I don't know much about this team apart from Jamal Crawford and Tyson Chandler, because I wasn't following the NBA during this period. So this will be interesting.

The first couple of years will definitely be difficult. I think Jay Williams will be a huge What If here, also will be nice to see Chandler and Rose carry a team.

Decided to sim at least 60% of the games every season for this to go forward at a nice pace. Expect weekly recaps, perhaps a video for a played game, and not much more.

Settings, roster and history added. Going full 2003 with this.

Yeah I think these days, simming a portion of the season is the way to go. Playing every game used to be a point of pride for me, but it's just not as feasible as it once was.

Thanks 'Drew, it definitely is. Hope I can put your Bulls back on top down the road.

Doing a rebuild game can be tough. With mine I just kept reminding myself that wins are good, but so are losses because they help your draft position.

Hopefully the sim engine is a bit tough on you, so that you end up with a top 4 pick in the superdraft :)

Thanks Phil. I know I'm gonna jinx myself by saying this, but I think I will put Bron, Wade and Melo in Cleveland, Miami and Denver and play against them first, and look into signing one of them in the future. Not sure yet. Fingers crossed.

Nice video recap (and win!).

It's funny to read 'contending' and 'Kings' in the same sentence. But I guess they had a good team in this era.

Thanks for checking in Phil! They truly had a great team back then. The previous WCF were probably rigged against them, so I guess they are out for revenge.

Following. (Y) Hopefully you can stick to this.

I might have to try the UBR myself as I've had the story bug on and off lately.

Thanks man, it has definitely been fun so far and I think this is the way to go -- sim a lot. :lol:

If you want to try a retro story, UBR has been perfect for me.
