I tried to get Williams. Didn't work salary wise and he was willing to give up pacers 03 with nash
I want the Celtics!
Great Job guys.
I really wish there was a way for more inside info on trade prospects could come out. I think GM's should be called out more. I'm surprised it took so long to call out the Mavs.
Warriors Kings is going to be an interesting series. I think it will go to 7 games and hopefully my HC advantage will put me on top.
Bob Sura has been ballin lately putting up a triple double and filling up the stat sheet but Courtney Alexander has disappered down the stretch and Glen Robinson has been mediocre.
I think if my team gets back on track I will pull it out.
Also, to the Bucks GM, as the Skip said, there is nothing wrong with what I did. We were negotiating a deal in private, were still not settled on the exact details (but overall had the framework agreed to) then the next 2 sims Alexander started rounding into form and my team started winning so I went in another direction.
That happens all the time in the NBA. Nothing was sent in, nothing fully agreed to.
It sucks not being able to fill out a depth chart.
I think there should be more interviews so when things like tanking and trades are brought up at least a GM has a chance to explain himself, makes for a less biased view on things.
As I said, we can only talk about things that happen in PM (like trades) that we are aware of. Although, I do know that both Balls and myself arent the only 2 GMs that have gone through the tooth-pulling process of trade talks. In the future, I will try to deter from making mention of things involving my own team if that will make you happy, bruh.
very nice guys.. sixers got a lot of love in this one
I've seen that done before, we'd need another forum for it though.
Well wasn’t expecting that kinda heat (Im the Mavs GM) but like ESPN you have to have strong opinions to draw in the audience.. so I get it. I can’t change your opinion but I lost a top 5 player in the league (Malone retired), missed free agency because I was moving, and played my best lineup for half of the season before I traded away Pierce. Pierce has a high greed score (96, will get overpaid when his contract runs up), low loyalty score, and low play for winner score. I gave him a chance to be the “man” and win and he didn’t (no way I was getting close to the playoffs). I shopped him for a few weeks and got the best offer I could find for the situation I was in (expiring, picks, and young talent). If I really was tanking I would have traded him and Magloire (got plenty of bad offers) away before the season started and really stunk it up. Funny how people are blaming other GM’s for tanking (no disrespect I get it) but will turn around and give you terrible offers for your solid players to help facilitate this tanking… So you take advantage of one side but still blame the Gm’s for the other. Look this is a problem in real life so I am not going to get too involved in a sim league (funny how you run into the same problems with the real NBA)but I just wanted to give my 2 cents so people wouldn’t think I just went completely MIA on the sim or my team.
Oh and good luck to all in the playoffs and lotto!
Trell, I saw your comment last night and i'd like to state I didn't really take any personal shots at you besides talking about a bad trade that almost went down, which was reporting on a trade. I did mention something about Oneal being traded like 8xs but it was all part of a message to all of the GMs to get their stuff together and check the trade checker and rules before submitting the trades. I have personally fell into the category of not reading over the rules as carefully as i should have (11 points and not 10 in our trade), but since then I don't think any of my trades have 'failed'. I think it was a calling for all of us to get better, and to be honest, these failed trades are usually when the drama starts. If you (anyone in the league) PM someone who you think might know.
