RISE UP! A Cleveland Cavaliers Dynasty (RETIRED)

Hi and welcome to my new dynasty for the Cleveland Cavaliers. This will be my second attempt on a dynasty, I stopped my previous one for the Kings because the file got corrupted. Hopefully I will be able to do a mush better job with the Cavaliers. Thanks to all the guys in the forum that really inspired me to do another one and also the great patchers that helped in making Live a much better game. Hopefully you guys will also enjoy this as much as I am having fun doing it.

I will be playing most if not all 82 games of the season. I will be using a combination of patches from the forum including rosters by Alby’s, courts by Lagoa and looser, etc. Enjoy!

Planning to do at least four seasons with these...

Hi guys! I thought that I have my own prediction game to at least have some reader participation in my dynasty. Well, hopefully you guys can participate. The TOP 3 finishers will be included in the 2009 draft.

LEADERBOARD

    thierryhenry50 - (32.5) 32.5
    Martti. - (30.5) 30.5
    Xplosibo - (26) 29.5

    ratrac - (28.5) 28.5
    C-77 - (27) 27
    Bulldzers03 - (18.5) 18.5
    Sit - (18.5) 18.5

    weechees - (3.5) 3.5
    Clutch - (0) 0
    *() previous scores

:!: New Players are invited to join!

    REGULAR SEASON

    Okay, so I decided what mechanics to use for the regular season. You just have to predict the correct winner in every game this month.

    Point distribution is as follows:

    Predict correct winner: 1 point
    Correct W/L record: 3 points
    W/L record within 1: 1.5 points (i.e. you predict 10-5, correct W/L record is 9-6)
    (BONUS) Get everything correct: 5 points
    (BONUS) Predict how many triple-doubles LBJ gets: 2 points

    PLAYOFFS

    I will be using the mechanics Lamrock used in his ATL dynasty, so credits to him. (I am too lazy to think of new mechanics) :D

    You just have predict which teams win what series and in how many games.
    Point Distribution is as follows:

    If 7 game prediction goes other way: .5 point (i.e. You pick Cavs 4-3, Bulls win 4-3)
    Predict Correct Winner: 1 point
    # Games Prediction Within 1: 1.5 points (i.e. you predict Cavs 4-2, Bulls win 4-3)
    # Games Prediction Correct: 2 Points
    Bonus: Correctly guess upset: +.5 points

CAVS NAME ZOILO RESURRECCION SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE GENERAL MANAGER


October 1, 2007

CLEVELAND, OH -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have named Zoilo Resurreccion Special Assistant to the General Manager, Cavs Majority Owner Dan Gilbert announced today. His duties will include working closely with Danny Ferry in preparing for the 2008 NBA Draft and in the evaluation of current and future player personnel.

“We are very pleased to welcome Zoilo to the Cavaliers,” said Gilbert. “Zoilo has been following how we run the Cleveland Cavaliers for five years. His experience and knowledge about basketball will be an invaluable asset to the franchise, and we look forward to his contributions.”

“I am really excited to work with this franchise. Right now we definitely have the pieces to go all the way, it is just a matter of chemistry between the players. The management will still try to improve our team if that is what it would take to give us the championship this year,” said Reurreccion.

The Cavaliers recently acquired four new players on a blockbuster three team trade. They received Ben Wallace and Joe Smith from the Chicago Bulls and guards Delonte West and Wally Szczerbiak from the Seattle Supersonics. With the new lineup including superatar Lebron James, the Cavaliers will be one of the favorites to come out on top of the Eastern Conference.

Cavs All-Access: Training Camp 07-08

Postby homicide1550 on Wed Mar 05, 2008 3:44 am

Cavaliers Training Camp 07-08

Image Image

It was the first day of training camp on the newly opened practice facility which features two practice courts, a team meeting room with theater-style seating, and a modern athletic training room and high-tech features like MP3 sockets throughout the building.

“Oh man! I am one lucky dude. This facility is way, way better that what we have in Seattle,” said newcomer Delonte West upon entering the building.

“Amen to that, AMEN!” said Szczerbiak.

The players were all impressed as one by one they started to enter the facility. As soon as all of them arrived they started to do their stretchings and personal rituals, as they wait for the arrival of Coach Mike Brown.

“Hey DJ, have you seen Coach yet?” asked Lebron.

“Nah, they are probably still planning what activities we are gonna do today. Uhmm.. Got an idea though, since our facility is new and all, why don’t we smoke the basket? Who here wants to take on the GREATEST SHOOTER ON EARTH?” shouted Damon Jones. “How bout you Boobie? Wanna challenge the greatest?”

“Yah, sure will DJ. Uhmm.. But what happens if I beat you?” asked Boobie.

“Let’s see. Uhmm.. I got one, IF and ONLY IF you beat me, I will carry your luggage all throughout the preseason, including our games in China, and vice versa. That’s cool right?” explained Damon.

Gibson nodded in agreement with Jones and is preparing to start the challenge. The player who scores the most three-pointers from the top of the key in 30 seconds will win. Lebron, Ben and Sasha all went under the basket to retrieve the balls while others watched on the sidelines betting on who will win.

Gibson shot first and he scored 5 three pointers. He has a smile on his face as he walks to the bench ready to see how the self-proclaimed greatest shooter will do.

“It’s your turn now your highness! Good Luck!” joked Gibson.

Halfway through DJ’s time he has already scored 4 points. As candid as DJ is he tried using his left hand just to make fun of Boobie. And he even nailed one to tie it at 5 with still 6 seconds left. Until...

“PPRRRRRTTTTTT!” the sound of a whistle. It was Coach Brown walking towards the court. “Playtime’s over boys, time to work!”

DJ wasn’t able to nail another jumper so they were tied at 5. He wasn’t able to put up another shot as Mike Brown called all of them over. Boobie definitely got out of being treated as a rookie all over again.

“I’ll get you next time..” chuckled DJ while his other teammates smiled.

“Alright guys! Huddle up!” exclaimed Brown. “This is our first day in training camp and I want all of you to work hard. We have several new players in our team so you better get accustomed playing with them. Learn the offense and most importantly our defense. But before we start since we have several new faces, I just want all of you to introduce yourselves, say your name and little something about you.”

“I am Devin Brown, I have bounced around the league and hopefully this is where I find my home,” said Devin.

“I’m Ben Wallace, and I am willing to do anything to help us get some wins,” said a determined Wallace.

“I am Damon Jones aka DJ aka GREATEST SHOOTAH ON EARTH and I am here to bury some three’s for you coach.” Jones said with a big smile on his face.

Some of them hiding their laughter because of DJ’s antics. And after a few minutes, all players have spoken except for one...

“Hi! My name is Lebron James and I want to win a championship!”

After that statement everybody went into serious mode. Everyone knew what their goal is this season as said by their leader. Even the hilarious Damon Jones stopped fooling around. It was time to RISE UP... and get down to business..

_______________________________________________________


It has been six days since training camp began and everybody was minding their tasks at hand when newly named special assistant to the GM Zoilo Resurreccion came to visit the team with GM Danny Ferry.

The Cavs were having a 5 on 5 scrimmage and with just 5 seconds left on the clock, with the scored tied. Lebron James drew the defense and then kicked it out to the open Daniel Gibson.

“SWISSSHHH!” Gibson nailed the jumper and saved the starters from doing push-ups.

“BENGGAA!!” shouted Boobie after he hit the buzzer beater.

Lebron James came up to him and gave him a pat on the head. He was then motioned by Danny Ferry to come over and talk with him.

“How y’all doin sir? I believe you are the new assistant to the GM right?” asked Lebron while extending his hand for a handshake.

“Yeah.. I guess that’s right. I am Zoilo better yet why don’t you just call me Lil Z since we have Zydrunas as Big Z. I think that would be better.” explained Resurreccion.

“Okay, that’s cool boss, err, I mean Lil Z. Uhmm.. Could you guys excuse me coz I think we still have some video tapes to watch from last year’s Finals. Better learn from mistakes, right? So, I’ll be seeing you guys.” James said running to the direction of his teammates.

“Sure! If there’s anything you need you can tell anyone of us!” Ferry offered.

As training camp approaches it’s final hours, was there enough time to get the team to gel? Or will it take some time for them to work like a well-oiled machine? Luckily for the Cavs, there is still a preseason and hopefully playing more with each other can get them to overcome their differences...

Deathbringer, I have sharpened the pics. Thanks for the advice. Pictures really look much better now.

Chaser7, Hibachi really killed me. And guess what? Another big time guard killed me in the form of Chauncey Billups. :|

Lovin' the reports man. I especially like how you included the three buttons. It's like I'm actually clicking around on a new site.

Gilbert and Chauncy usually score big on me. I was fortunate he only scored 22 in my last game. I don't think he's ever scored 40 against my defense but he usually goes for around 34 or 36. Wish you the best of luck against the Sonics.

Skillmatic, there is an option to sharpen the pics in my photostudio. It looks way better now, thanks to your idea! (Y)

ChiFan23, those scoring guards really punished my backcourt. I actually got the idea from my buddy chaser.

Sanguango, I am having a tough preseason. And I am not playing James and the starters enough as I want the role players to play more.


To all, thanks for reading and commenting! I’ll be uploading the Sonics game next. :D

Skillmatic, Delonte was great. Hopefully Big Ben and Z can handle D12.

Chaser7, Yeah! Just wanted some realism, and they did play some great teams so I kinda liked their preseason schedule.


Keep following guys.. Thank you! :D

It's a shame that I'm such a sucker for the graphical side of the game, because the rest of this dynasty is awesome: great presentation, really enjoyable "behind the scenes". Can't wait for the regular season!

(Oh yes, and don't worry about improving the graphics, they're good already, only the EA default Seattle jerseys look really...off-colour.)

NBA China Games 2007

NBA China Games 2007: A Battle of Young Superstars

Image

The NBA China Games 2007 are comprised of three games featuring the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic and the China Men’s National Team. NBA China Games 2007 will tip off on Oct. 17 with a game between the Cavaliers and the Magic in Shanghai at the Qizhong Forest Sports City arena with a capacity of 13,708. The event will then head to Macao where there will be two games at the new Venetian Arena with a capacity of 15,000. On Oct. 18, the Magic will take on the China Men’s National Team, and a rematch between the Magic and the Cavaliers will take place on Oct. 20.

While many prepare to enjoy a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere at the NBA China Games, Dwight Howard is staying as serious as anybody.

The Orlando Magic center has one task in mind - to dunk over LeBron James in front of Chinese fans.

"If he's around the rim, I'm pretty sure I'm going to dunk the ball on whoever is around," said the 22-year-old All-Star forward. "I'm going to try to break the rim there in China."

Howard, the first overall selection in the 2004 NBA draft, believes the China games will be crucial to his side's preparation for the upcoming season.

"We take it seriously," he said. "Our team is really trying to focus on working on our defense, and the China Games are a pretty good chance to see where we are defensively.

James was not as concerned about the upcoming challenge with Howard. Enjoying the game is his first priority.

"I feel comfortable every time I come to China, so the number one thing for me is to enjoy my game here," he said. "I want my Chinese fans to enjoy the games as well, we will try to show the best of our basketball."

Ouch tough loss and even worse Lebron got dunked on D12. Next game Bron Bron has gotta get revenge!

Also, why is the text so splotchy? Anyway to fix it, it'd make it look better, I mean its fine, just a small suggestion. Skillimatic has this problem too, don't know why..

Chaser7, I think its because I sharpen the pic so the text kinda gets that splotchy thing. D12 got me on that one I tried to get away from him but it was too late... :(

Hopefully, I can get LJ to dunk on him on the next game.. I’ll try.. :mrgreen:

You mean the program I use to edit? I use Arcsoft PhotoStudio. The screens are way too big so I really had to make them smaller, and that was the reason I sharpened the pics so that it isn’t blurry..

Anyway, thanks for checking in Sir Andrew!

Cavs All-Access: NBA China Games (Day 6)

Postby homicide1550 on Wed Mar 12, 2008 1:34 am

NBA China Games (Day 6) - Cavaliers Public Workout

Image

“OOOHHHHH!” echoed through the gym as Lebron James threw down an alley-oop from a half court pass from Daniel Gibson.

“Damn! That was sick ‘Bron!” Delonte West exclaimed with a grimace on his face.

That dunk ended the Cavaliers practice as reporters were allowed to go and talk with the players. Almost all of them went to surround NBA Superstar Lebron James.

“Huh? Man, Why do you have all the attention dawg? Don’t they know I’m the most good-looking player in the NBA?” Damon Jones jokingly told James.
James replied with a smile and shoving Damon lightly.
“Just kiddin’ man, I’ll go and take some shower. See yah later!” said Jones while walking towards the locker room.

“Okay guys, I am ready! So who wants to ask first?” asked James.
“Lebron, how is your stay here in China?” a Chinese reporter asked.
“Well, it has been pretty good. The people here are friendly and what do I have to say, they kinda like me here.”
“They love you here! By the way, have you seen your Nike billboards around here? What are your thoughts about that?”
“For me, growing up, I never thought about having a billboard anywhere. You see them locally, and then you start seeing them a little bit nationwide. And now worldwide. It's like, wow. It's like extra credit. It's unbelievable. You would never think that you could have your face somewhere else where you don't even live,” replied James.
“What did you think about Dwight Howard’s dunk on you the other night?” asked the American journalist.
“Did you have to bring that one up?” James with a smirk on his face.
“Well that was a nasty one. I tried not to get outta the way but Dwight got me. But it is all good, me and Dwight are good friends, it is all for fun but I would really be happy if I can get one on him before this tour ends.”

Finally, after about 10 minutes. Lebron bid farewell to the media and invited them to see their game on Thursday, as he head on to the locker room to freshen up.

__________________

Meanwhile, Coach Mike Brown was sitting in the locker room when his cellphone rang.

“Hello, coach Brown speaking..”
“Hi Coach! How’s the team doin? This is Zoilo, management wanted me to call you...”
“Oh, it’s been great here, but our team seems to be still struggling to play with one another. So what’s this all about?”
“So you’ve not read some news around the league huh? Danny and I have talked about this and both of us had the same idea.”
“Go on, I am listening.” Brown said.
“Since we won’t be picking up the contracts on one of our D-League guys, we decided to pick this young player off the waiver wire, we really think that he could be another piece to our championship puzzle. He is raw but I think he can fit our system.”
“Oh, really? I do hope you guys are right. Who is it then...”
“We’ll let you know once you come back here in Cleveland. Take care of our guys over there.”
