    It's strange. If you value ratings, then there are some guys we know of as quality players that aren't worth being drafted high. If you value potential, then there's a lot of guys that I've never heard of with great potential. I mean, Ron Slay? James Lang? Kevin Johnson (no, not that one)? Marcus Hatten? Travis Hansen? Who are these bums, and why do they all have A potential?

    The same reason Deanthony Hullett and Onionyriouyruy or whatever his name was has A but failed. IRL Darko had A potential but never lived up to it. Eddie Curry as well. Also, ratings are a little "overrated" as well. Theres a lot of guys that letter rate out well but can play a lick in this league.

    Thanks for the kind words, this actually got me thinking is there anywhere to see previous seasons results? I know you can look at overall records but I'd like to see most wins in a season and other things like that. This has been a fun season, not having to rely on Webber for absolutely everything I remember saying early on I have 3 guys that can go for 30 any given night and that has been true, I actually think there have been a few games when they've each gotten 30. Hopefully they can close out the regular season and not flame out in the playoffs like I have the past 2 years.

    I get what you're saying, but Darko has C potential in this draft. And some of these guys with A potential weren't even drafted in the real '03 draft, so what's up with that?

    I'm just wondering. Maybe these second-round picks aren't so worthless after all. I guess this is the sim's way of trying to emulate the uncertainity of real life, and failing miserably to do so. There may be some unknown gems the sim has decided to create, but honestly, none of us are going to take a chance on these losers. Even if we did, cries of "TANK! HE'S TANKING!" would no doubt be thrown around.

    Time for me to get started on evaluating the prospects. A 4-11 mark in the last two sims has pretty much knocked me out of the playoffs. Need to improve my SF depth and hope that Manu improves his perimeter scoring next season.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Zaur "Zaza" Pachulia was drafted last season by the Hawks. He's still on their roster.

    I recomend that Sofoklis Schortsianitis be upgraded to As across the board

    Only one guys said he's offered me better and that was hornetstime. I have said many times that I regret not doing that deal. When you PM'ed me that, I wasn't shopping him.

    I've been looking for Cwilder's depth chart because he also traded his best player away (Pierce i think) for David Robinson and a slew of 1st round picks and was applauded for getting assets back. Well looking at his box score Robinson appears to be his 3rd PF and either doesn't play or plays 4-7 mins a game at the Power Forward position. I tried finding his first DC in the thread but when I did a search it only showed his depth charts from season 2 finals. I know he has been missing, but haven't seen it brought up anywhere either. He has Jamaal Magloire starting C Chris Wilcox starting PF and Olumide Oyedeji backing them both up if I had to guess going by the minutes...

    Been a strange year in this sim.
    This is unnecessary telling. Maybe because I set up my depth chart differently, or my team have good defenders. Maybe form a over valued you guy who is on the bench with a A+ defense.

    It's not like you wouldn't have the cap space to sign them to 3 max deals. I'm glad you didnt though, I mean I don't want you to to have Jamison lol I'm fighting you out for a playoff spot

    Yea, like the odds are in my favor especially from previous free agency. Shocked my team are even close, I knew defensively we would be good but wasn't sure if the offense would hold up. Even if the Suns deal would go through, defensively we would have been good. Lets see where this goes.

    Unlike other GM's here, I don't care. Just don't blatantly lie about it to everyone's faces (screens).

    I would much rather have an active owner that is tanking than an owner who can't bother to put in a depth chart all season.

    I'd rather get the clap instead of herpes but I'd rather take precautions against not having either.

    We should set a cap floor, like in the real NBA, to discourage tanking
