And I gave Marshall a 1 yr max, so I doubt he had any better options. He is 30, not 36, he can make the max deal this year and still probably get a nice longer deal next. I would be shocked if a real NBA player in his situation didnt take that
I just made good moves and gave myself tons of flexibility and people get butthurt and want to penalize me for it. I have to re-sign 4 star players in a couple seasons, so Im smart enough to build a contender, and still keep my flexibilty and not give out bad long term deals like other people
I was inactive the 1st season, then started a rebuild, ever heard of one?
hmm lets see:
core of 4 future allstars? yep
Keith Van Horn for Amare? yep
Kenyon Martin for Richard Jefferson? yep
Gary Payton for a bunch of pieces including K-Mart? yep
Dumping bad players so I can make you butthurt?
Lol butt hurt. You are who we thought you were . Doesn't matter who it was directed at, matters it was directed and said.

The Knicks are a franchise that try to take advantage of vulnerable teams and have done a good job of doing it. The GM has been active in one-sided trades. Teams who trade with him only have themselves to blame unfortunately.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
I remember people complaining about my deal with him for KMart. I got rid of Jarics horrible contract that is at 5 mil this season when his production was non existent and still is. Team improved and got to the second round.

"I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery
It is true that in the NBA we dont see much of players vetoing a trade because of their no-trade-clause, it is because they veto it privately before the trade was even finalized. I'm not saying you violated anything, you just found a loophole and abused it. does that make me butthurt? LOL second season champion
All I wanted is for teams not to have the flexibility of trading the 1 year deals. you say that youd probably keep Payton and Marshall, im not against that, what i dont want is for you to have the option of trading them for more assets IF the Marshall-Payton experiment doesnt work

But this time, I agree with you. Unfortunately I can really only think of one way to do resignings, and that is to accept all contracts then go back and delete them if people don't want to accept that deal. Sadly this basically deletes who the guy last played for and you lose his bird rights, this is what happened with you. Marshall deal accepted by me, you decline, and now you can't go over the cap to resign him. Another one of your players, Greg Ostertag, didn't have a contract for you to accept/decline meaning you kept the rights to being able to exceed the cap to resign him.
People need to remember this game was made in 2000 or 2001, it's outdated and definitely has its flaws.

Why would Hardaway or Van Horn block a deal where they leave a bad team and become starters?
And I dont see what loophole I found. I wanted Hardaway, I actually meant to rescind the Van Horn offer. Hardaway had a much better offer and signed with me for some reason. My team ended up bombing so I didn't have much reason to keep them. If anything you should be happy I signed him and glad I didnt tank, as a few more losses mightve got me Wade.
This year again I wasnt gonna give 35 year old Payton a multiple year deal when he is probably gonna retire soon. For Marshall I was worried someone was gonna make a bigger long-term offer than I was willing to give, so I just gave him 1 yr max

I traded the Knicks one late 1st rounder for 4 first rounders, a 2nd rounder and Corey Maggette lol let's stop pumping up a guy who's never made the playoffs and act like he's done anything special as a GM

Its a fake article about a fake sim league don't give yourself too much credit or get too excited about butthurting people, something you seem to be proud of for some strange reason. Its a moot point since I couldnt resign Marshall, something I just found tonight. And thank you for the you mad comment you have come full circle in overused stupid internet phrases.
People obviously enjoy this league its active there is a waiting list to join and it appears a lot of people don't like what you're doing but go ahead keep being yourself you're clearly making a lot of friends in the process.
