The core of that team is:

Kevin Durant - 26 years - 95 ovr
Derrick Rose - 26 years - 94 ovr
Blake Griffin - 25 years - 90 ovr
James Harden - 25 years - 88 ovr
Michael Beasley - 26 years - 86 ovr
Roy Hibbert - 27 years - 85 ovr

Elsewhere, Stephen Curry is only 85 overall. He did average 26p/10a the previous season though.

It's always important to back up your files. You never know when a file might get corrupted or deleted by accident. I have two flash drives so I'm always covered.

Dotson has been a real find for my Association....good mid-range shooter, has nice moves, handles the ball well, excellent finisher and super fast. I can play him at the 2 or 3 spot.

For my fellow franchise enthusiasts, I discussed the prospect of simulating games - and the need to make peace with the idea, especially as we get older - in this week's Monday Tip-Off: https://www.nba-live.com/mto-making-pea ... ted-games/

Hey guys, Thierry here! I guess you really didn't expect me to return. It's been almost four years since I was a truly active member. Life has not been very kind to me -- it's a long, long story. I found a personal retreat in movies (I've been watching one a day for the past two years), and also 2K14 with all the mods (UBR above all) that the forum has been providing.

I would love to make some sort of return and be around the forums again, if you guys will have me. :bowdown: I thought of some "What If?" scenarios from the past where I would start an association, or with today's rosters, it would be the Knicks.

Can't believe I registered 14 years ago.

This is hilarious: Lamrock just started a thread, Kenny's back, I (of all people) started a thread. I was never the most active or regualar on this forum, but I know you remember me: probably "Hyperize." was one of my most well-known handles at the time... there's something in the water. :lol:

Heads-up to everyone who started a 2K19 story already: people on OS are saying there is a glitch in 2020 where every center is commanding a max contract and players like KAT and DMC go unsigned because they're demanding so much money, so that should be fun. (Y) At least we have complete control over every aspect of the game.

Ok, so I have an scenario I like for every team in the league, except five: Thunder/Sonics (a team that I don't like/an association I've seen reborn several times); Cavs, Clippers (two teams I've never been fond of); Mavericks (I like a point in their history, but they did won a championship just a couple of years later), and the Spurs (which I used before in my HOF story). :cheeky: Some are sexier than others, of course, but 2K14 UBR makes everything possible. Anything you would like to see, peoples? (an actual team, it would be NY.)

What If's: 1996 Hornets (Kobe stays), 1996 Magic (Shaq stays), 2001 Hawks (Pau Gasol stays), 2004 Pacers (no Palace Brawl), 2008 Blazers (Durant instead of Oden)
Rebuilds: 1998 Bulls (after the three-peat), 2001 Grizzlies (fresh off relocation), 2004 Lakers (Shaq leaves), 2004 Celtics (no KG/Ray, let's try something else), 2008 Pistons (last time they won a playoff game)
Contenders: 1996 Heat (Alonzo, Tim Hardaway, Mashburn), 1999 Knicks (can they reassure their Finals berth?), 2000 Jazz (a trophy for Malone & Stockton!), 2001 Sixers (let's get AI a ring), 2002 Kings (battles vs. Lakers), 2003 Nets (two Finals losses), 2004 Suns (Seven Seconds or Less), 2004 Wolves (fresh off Conf. Finals), 2008 Nuggets (Conf. Finals with Melo, Billups, JR, Nené, etc.)
Just cool teams, IMO: 2003 Bucks (Gary Payton, Redd, Desmond Mason), 2003 Raptors (Vince stays for life plus Bosh!), 2003 Wizards (Arenas plus one of my favourite logo + jerseys combos), 2004 Rockets (T-Mac + Yao), 2005 Hornets (CP3! JR! West!), 2007 Warriors (8th seed defeating 1st seed Mavs).

Wow... lot's of good ideas there. Durant on the Blazers and big three-less Celtics are sticking out to me, but really, you should choose the '04 Rockets: continue on as I will abandon my Live 10 story. :lol:

I've never actually played an NBA game on PC, so I'm unaware of the UBR (I know what it stands for and I've seen Jao's video on it), but I'm astounded by the options, and the prospect of using a recent game to do a story with a classic team is awesome... how far back does it go, and pretty much everything will be accurate save the franchise year?

I might have to try out the UBR for myself, though I've never been savvy at modding.

IIRC, roster files from the 60s until today, and draft classes from the 70s until today. Not hard at all, you just have to copy jerseys, courts, logos to the 2K directory and rosters, draft classes, settings to the Saves directory. Then you load in game. Easy peasy.

Finally got myself 2K19. Been playing 2k14 on PC on and off for the last 5 years...

After 2 online games realized that I should probably start with offline games and perhaps some sort of MyLeague or MyGM.

Nice to see this section lively again and many old faces returning as well. Might start something up once I'm better at the game and costumed to next gen (if they even call it that anymore) gameplay.
