I hope Milwaukee don't pick me because I want to play for a team where I can become a star. If Milwaukee picks me, I'm just going to take over Redd's spot :lol:

Oh, really... ? Given his passion for good and hard Defense, I think I'll nickname him D-Weaver... :lol:

It wouldn't ,ake sense anyway for them to pick you, so I'll probably work up a trade for you to go somewhere where you can start...
These rookie patches and all have taken too much of my comp time , so I better hava as many of them start, without getting unrealistic... let's just say that this was one deep draft class... :lol:

damn right....I want March Madness/NCAA game to be made on PC and I want exportable draft classes that give accurate ratings etc.... :x they do it NCAA and Madden, do they not? last time I checked they did :x

ahh well....until then, dbf editing will consume us....I still have to do ratings :cry:

I'll avoid everything else and concentrate on the most important new addition to the dynasty, the scouting reports....

observations....David Weaver looks very similar to this Hassakis guy I have in my dynasty :o although Weaver seems to not wear the goggles and appears to have a lot more range (and I mean a lot more range) than Hassakis :lol: I wonder if Weaver and Hassakis played at Stanford around the same time :drool:

next observation....I hope Frye drops down the draft to the 2nd Round :D unlikely if you have got those player values correct :wink: hope it helped....wouldn't mind knowing if I got it right or not....

final observation....sorry Ms. Jackson, your sonny boy will be leaving home for good come June....he's really got an NBA body at 6'7" and 230lbs....that's something Penny never had....Desmond "Mafia" Jackson seems like a rich man's Danny Granger to me....wonder who will end up as the better pro in your dynasty....the real Danny Granger or the rich man's version....everyone's bet has to be on Mr. Jackson....

enuff said....

Attempting a mid range fade-away jumper is not the same as actually making it.... :lol: it just made for a nice picture... :D


I hope Frye drops down the draft to the 2nd Round unlikely if you have got those player values correct hope it helped....wouldn't mind knowing if I got it right or not....


Nah, he's about in the same range as Weaver... 15 to 20 or somewhere...


Desmond "Mafia" Jackson seems like a rich man's Danny Granger to me....wonder who will end up as the better pro in your dynasty....the real Danny Granger or the rich man's version....everyone's bet has to be on Mr. Jackson...


Granger is projected Top 15... D-Jax is Top 5.... there's a lot of difference talent wise... D-Jax is the best thing to have happened to Memphis since the Griz made the playoffs... :lol:

Well at least hardly any teams will be disappointed in this draft, I mean they should be happy with any person they draft now


It's a deep class, just not so strong at the top... plus I left out guys like Paul, Marvin Williams, Webster, Monta Ellis, Blatche , Petro, Andriuskevicius etc for the 07 draft class...

April 2, 2006



Utah 107 – New York 106 (Record:42-30)
It was as close as it could get, with neither team being able to shake the other loose at any point in the game. Carlos Boozer with 26 points and 13 rebounds led the Jazz to victory, while Croatian guard Gordan Giricek seconded his efforts with another 25 points, voiding Odom’s 23 pts – 9 rebs as well as Mike Dunleavy’s quality performance off the bench, with 15 points in 21 minutes.




April 3, 2006



New York 115 – Milwaukee 88 (Record:43-30)
This one had the smell of a blowout about it ever since the first 5 minutes or so. Michael Redd was forcing shots on offense, the rest of the Bucks were in some kind of hypnotic trance unable to score or defend, all the while Jamal Crawford was having a party against TJ Ford and Maurice Williams on offense. JC finished the game with 31 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, and Jamaal Magloire added another 20 points and 13 rebounds.




April 5, 2006



New York 94 – Milwaukee 88 (Record:44-30)
This one was much closer than the game 2 days ago, but the end result was the same: another home victory for the Knicks against the Bucks. This time around it was all due to Allan Houston’s heroics during the final minutes of the 4th quarter, that New York reached to the finishing line first. Allan had 15 of his 31 total points during that stretch, proving the fact that he is still the veteran leader of this teams , despite his 34 years of age.

Image




April 7, 2006



New York 87 – Orlando 107 (Record:44-31)
The Knicks never really showed up to contest the Magic for victory, and especially their second half performance was pathetic. Sophomore forward/center Dwight Howard was having a blast against Lamar Odom on offense, scoring 27 points , grabbing 13 rebounds and swatting 4 of Lamar’s shots. Jamal Crawford had 22 points on 8/17 shooting, but the team’s shooting percentage of .407 proved to be the deciding factor for the loss.




April 9, 2006



New Jersey 102 – New York 97 (Record:44-32)
Another close one in the end, but despite the Knicks mounting a 4th quarter charge to come back from a double-digit deficit, the victory went to J-Kidd and company in the end. Kidd had 28 points and 8 assist, and Richard Jefferson scored 34, being the beneficiary of most of the aforementioned assists. Odom and Thomas scored 24, and Brian Grant came off the bench to put up another 11 points, but those three were the only Knicks in double figures.




April 10, 2006



Washington 89 – New York 130 (Record:45-32)
The Wizards have begun tanking the season a long time ago, now being bottom of the league with an embarrassing 20 – 52 record. The Knicks had no problem whatsoever to reach to their biggest win of the season by a margin of 41 points, with Odom, Magloire, Houston and Crawford all scoring 20 points or more.

Cmon, you just need 5 straight wins and you can get to the 50-mark. Either way it goes, your set for the playoffs so just try to keep your head above water.

Hoping for another appearance in the NBA Finals... The league, and especially the East, seem much tougher this yera so it'll take even more of an effort than in 2005...

Yes... just like baseball... :lol:

It won't make much difference... the Pistons are way ahead of me for the 1st seed in the East, the Sixers are too far behind for the Atlantic title... so I'm guaranteed a 2nd or 3rd Conference seed... I guess I coudl push Miami for the 2nd place amongst division winners, but I'd rather play no. 6 Philly than no. 7 Chicago, who is red hot at the moment...

April 13, 2006



New York 93 – Golden State 95 (Record:45-33)
The Knicks had the victory all but sealed up until the final 4 minutes, but the visiting warriors played like their name suggests and grinded their way to a rare road victory, playing excellent defense and keeping the home side scoreless during that stretch. Jason Richardson had 31 and Baron Davis 29 points for the winners, while Lamar Odom led New York in scoring with 22.



April 18, 2006



Toronto 132 – New York 103 (Record:45-34)
The Knicks forgot about playing defense in this game and they paid the hefty price with a 130 point shellacking, courtesy of the streaking Raptors, who may be out of playoff contention as usual, but they took no time off in dismantling their opposition today. Jalen Rose had 33 points and Mo Peterson added 27, with the two of them combined hitting 11 three pointers early on to break the Knicks’ spirit. Odom had 22 for New York.




April 23, 2006



Philadelphia 97 – New York 89 (Record:45-35)
The Sixers managed to defeat their Atlantic division rivals, with a late game effort, but fell short in their quest to clinch the divisional title, which is as of now the courtesy of the New York Knicks. We will be an automatic top 3 seed in the East because of this. In regard to this game, aging Allen Iverson remembered his old explosive self and went on to score 37 and lead his team to a potential 4th seed clinching victory. Odom had 29 for the Knicks, but he went silent in the final 5 minutes when his team needed him the most.

Image




April 25, 2006



New York 101 – Seattle 102 (Record:45-36)
Another 4th quarter drop in performance resulted in another late loss for the Knicks, who seem to be going into the playoffs with far from perfect momentum having lost 7 of their last 10 games. Magloire had a great game with 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Mike Dunleavy hit 6 three pointers for a total of 18 points coming off the bench, but it was the Sonics’ grit and passion that led them to a late charge and subsequent victory. Ray Allen had 24 and Rashard Lewis 23 points for the victors.




April 30, 2006



Miami 98 – New York 84 (Final Record:45-37)
The Knicks had the chance to grab the 2nd seed in the east with a victory in Florida, facing 40-42 Chicago rather than 43-39 and in-form Philadelhia. They could not get the job done against Miami, though, and dropped their 5th straight game, going into the playoffs with less than appropriate confidence. Despite Allan Houston’s 28 point worth shooting display, the combined might of Shaq and Udonis Haslem proved too much for the Knicks to contain, with the both of them combining for 35 rebounds.



- Brian Grant got injured today, picking the worst possible time to do so, approximately 5 days before the playoffs begin. He will be out of practice for 12 days and from then on he’ll be day-by-day.

Playoffs is when we New Yorkers tend to grind it out and get result... let's see how this year goes...

wow...5 straight lost...
good luck for the playoffs man


No sweat... we're in, with a no 3 seed... Thanks (Y)

Oh no... Brian Grant...

haha... u will be fine Weaver!



Well, he's rated 65, can play both PF and C and is my sicth man coming off the bench along with Derek Fisher... The next best big man on the team is none other than Jerome James, so that's a reason to start worrying... :lol:

it was suppose to be 5 straight wins, not 5 straight losses....guess I jinxed you when I mentioned that magic number 50

good luck turning it around in the post-season....


Looks like th eboys tanked it to stay fresh, but Brian Grant still manage to sideline himself for two weeks... :x

yap, i hope u can make a good playoff run in spite of ur disappointing last games


Thanks Flo, I hope so too... (Y)


I had a feeling that was going to happen 5 straight losses instead of 5 straight wins. You ruined the big 50 surprise


Maybe next year... my last contract year with NY... :D



Good stuff weaver! I thought u had the sixers up wrong! lol


We're playing them in Round 1, so I though you'd like to see their stats...



a bit lazy on resizing pics down today eh?


Damn, I knew i had forgotten something.... well, no way I'm editing them now... :P



No. 3 seed is solid so let us see how you do


I want the title, but it's tough... If I make it to the Conference Finalsm, this season would be reagarded as succesful... 8-)


oh good to see kg's team bak in form, also good to see the suns up there


Minny have been on top of the league for two straight seasons, and after losing to eventual champions Dallas in the Western Finals last year, they're back for another run, even if Spree is now playing for the Hawks... Hoiberg is having career years at 33, starting and scoring 11.5 ppg... Go Mr. Mayor!!! (Y)


Nice recap for the division leading teams. The pictures are a little blurry so I guess you sized them down a little late. My expectations are that you should succeed in the playoffs


Thanks. Actually, I forgot to resize the pics... :lol: Success varies upon definition.... As I said, making it to the Eastern Finals would make this year a succesful one...



Stay tuned: Playoff trees coming up, and the all-favorite predictions contest is back for another year, with the winner gaining a place for himself in the '07 rookie class....

I appreciate this, buddy... You know sometimes we dynasters feel like we're preaching to the same ol' choir... it's mice to see new faces in here... start posting your thought guys :D :wink:



Okay, I'll wait a bit more for Mark and Mafia's votes... Should Batmaf win, I'll give him theoption of being traded to the team of his choice as early as the trade deadline of the 06/07 season... and the runner-up will enter the dynasty as a rookie...

Game 1 – Eastern Quarterfinals: New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers(Series at 0 – 0)

It was a very close game up until the final 3 minutes, at which point Lamar Odom exploded offensively and proceeded to score 8 consecutive points to transform a two point lead into a 10 point one. Odom finished Game 1 with 24 points and 11 rebounds, all the while Jamal Crawford was feeding him the ball, racking up 9 assists in the end. Magloire’s rebounding kept control of the tempo, and Allan Houston’s 16 points with 5 three pointers were a welcome addition. From the Sixers, Chris Webber had 25 points and 8 rebounds, but with Allan Iverson stuck at 16 points and 8 assists, there really was not much hope for Philly.

ImageImage


Result: The Knicks take game 1, 103 – 91, and lead the series 1 – 0.









Game 2 – Eastern Quarterfinals: New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers(Knicks lead 1 – 0)

This was a copy of game 1, no exaggeration whatsoever. The two teams again entered the 4th quarter tied, and once more a late game explosion by Lamar Odom and the Knicks tilted the game heavily towards their favor resulting in victory. Lamar scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, 8 of which were offensive. He also played good D on Webber , who might have scored 25 points but he did so on 9/24 shooting from the field. Tim Thomas was playing second fiddle for the Knicks with 19 points and 9 rebounds, while Jamal Crawford had a vintage 15pts – 6rebs – 6ast game with 6/6 from the field.

Image Image


Result: New York wins 116 – 95, and now takes command of the series, leading 2 – 0 and going into Philadelphia for games 3 and 4.

Pretty much the same type of games and you won both and Odom dominating in both of them :lol: Good job stealing the first two games, could it be a sweep???

Also, it's Allen not Allan Iverson :P

Yes, Odom looks to be a big time playoff performer , elevating his game under pressure... I didn't steal any games, I have homecourt advantage... :wink:

2-0 and rolling....nice work


Thanks... to the sim engine :P

Game 3 – Eastern Quarterfinals: Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks (Knicks lead 2 – 0)

Up until half time, the home team had dominated the opposition, leading by 17 and seemingly leaving no room for a comeback with asphyxiating defense and excellent shot selection on the offensive end of the floor. It all was turned upside down in the second half. Though, with New York managing to outscore Philadelphia 47 – 20 and reaching the victory in a convincing way in the end. Derek Fisher put up another fantastic playoff performance to add to his résumé, with 27 points with 9 three pointers in 11 attempts!!! . Fish also added 7 assists and 6 rebounds to cap a great performance. Allen Iverson scored 32 , but only 8 in the second half.

ImageImage


Result: Knicks win 85 – 95 with a second half rally. And are now ahead by 3 – 0.

Game 4 – Eastern Quarterfinals: Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks (Knicks lead 3 – 0)



The Knicks blew their chances of sweeping their opponents and progressing to the Eastern Semifinals as early as of today. Most of the time, the Sixers were in complete command, leading with more than 10 points for about 30 minutes, led again by the ageless Chris Webber who was playing for himself AND for constantly sub-par in this series Allen Iverson. New York led a late game charge that peaked during the last 5 minutes of the 4th and final quarter, and even managed to tie the game 95-95 with a minute to go, but Webber scored a tough basket and in the last possession, a buzzer beating attempt by Derek Fisher missed its mark and led to Philadelphia avoiding an embarrassing sweep.

ImageImage




Result: The Sixers take it 97 – 95, make the series 3 – 1 for the Knicks, and will now be hoping for three more straight wins in order to advance.

I have a feeling that poor Philly won't be able to come back from this deficit as no team has ever done it before. I would like to see you clean house next game :wink:

Game 5 – Eastern Quarterfinals: Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks (Knicks lead 3 – 1)




This was as easy as it could get for the Knicks. In front of a sell-out crowd in the Madison Square Garden, New York seemingly could do no wrong and proceeded to destroy the Sixers with a 25-point margin of victory. Mike Dunleacy had his best game as a Knick, with 30 points ( 7/8 threes ) coming off the bench and playing a total of 28 minutes. Tim Thomas added 20, being used at the PF spot a lot, and Jamal Crawford added 11 assists to feed them the easy baskets they needed to score. Odom had an off night with only 11 points, but with Webber shooting 8/25 and AI committing 9 turnovers, he needn’t do much more.



ImageImage



Result: New York wins the game easily 104 – 79, makes it 4 – 1 clinching the series, and will now progress to the next Round where we will face the Chicago Bulls.



Here’s the stat sheet for the Knickerbockers after the first round and 5 games played:




Image






And this is how the playoff picture has shaped up after the Conference Quarterfinals:




ImageImage



Chicago made the upset and knocked Miami out with 3 straight victories, to win the series 4 games to 2, and inflict more misery upon the Heat fans who saw their team being ousted in the first round for the second consecutive time after last year, when they fell to another 7th seed, the Knicks.

Detroit manhandled the Nets’ weak frontcourt and won 4-1, but the surprising fact in the East was Indiana’s playoff veterans surrendering to the inexperienced Cavaliers so easily, getting swept in the process.


In the Western Conference, there were three lower-seeded teams advancing, with the shocker coming from the fact that the reigning champions Dallas Mavericks will not be able to defend their crown after losing 4-2 to the Kings. San Antonio and Phoenix also could not defend home court, while Minnesota cruised to the Western Semi-finals after cruising through most of the regular season. Let’s see if they can make the Finals this time.





Brian Grant has recovered from his late season injury and will be in uniform for Game 1 against the Bulls.
