I didn't realize how good your roster is until I looked at it again. About equal to the Heat, but you have the upper hand in talent. Is Jamison or Tmac injured? You should've had Tmac in the rotation imo.

I don't think Wade is too far behind Frye in scoring.

Neither of those two are injured, I just figured I'd have an extra big man on the bench in case of foul trouble and Humphries is good at rebounding. (Although he hasn't seen much game time lately) Maybe I could swap him for McGrady seeing as Garnett is filling in pretty well (for a 70 year old) :mrgreen:

Looks like another competitive Finals series so far, with you both taking a win on each other's home floor. Hopefully you can finish them off in five, though it'd be nice to win in front of the hometown fans. ;)

Thanks everyone! Really proud of this team.

I was 50/50 on continuing this for a fifth season, but I thought I'd give it one more season and wait for Live 13 to come out before starting anything new.

Working on the off-season stuff now. Hopefully there will be some more challengers for myself and Miami next season. :)

Draft Lottery & Top 10 Prospects

Lottery Chances

2013 NBA Draft Order

PHI - 1st ↑1
GSW - 2nd ↑5
HOU - 3rd ↑3
OKC - 4th ↓3
WAS - 5th ↓2
DEN - 6th ↓2
DAL - 7th ↓2
LAC - 8th -
NOH - 9th -
SAC - 10th -
TOR - 11th -
POR - 12th -
CLE - 13th -
CHA - 14th -


The Philadelphia 76ers finally have something to smile about after finishing bottom of the eastern conference for the past two seasons.
They will have the first selection in the 2013 NBA draft. They went into the lottery having the second most chances of receiving the top pick.
The biggest losers of the night were Oklahoma City. Having the highest chance of getting top pick, they fell all the way down to the fourth pick.
Perhaps the basketball gods perhaps decided that the Thunder didn't need the top pick after recently winning their fourth consecutive title.
Golden State certainly were the luckiest team in the lottery. They moved from the seventh pick all the way up to the second.

Tough break in the lottery, though it's not like you really need the top rookie in the Draft. ;) Hopefully you'll still land someone who'll have a shot at ROY, should they find enough PT in your rotation.

Off-season news update

Image Image Image Image Image

Oklahoma City has confirmed today that they have not offered new contracts to Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, Daequan Cook and Gilbert Arenas.
It is believed that Garnett and McGrady were released due to their age, but that it was wage demands that saw Cook and Arenas released.
Apparently Cook was asking for about twice what the Thunder were willing to pay, considering he was a sparingly used bench player this season.
Whilst Arenas somewhat surprisingly was said to have wanted a deal with similar money to the $20m a season he earned during his last contract.
Garnett and McGrady were the latest in the Thunder's veteran experiment. Grant Hill, Shaquille O'Neal and Allen Iverson previously played for them.
Forward Kris Humphries was also waived today, despite having another year to run on his contract. The Thunder wanted to free up a roster spot.
