talking about the past is irrelevant to what is happening now.


Then stop talking about my past games and talk about now

if you keep this lineup for the rest of the season (or majority of it) i will put out a public apology to you in this thread. you have my word on that


I am even organizing a special bobblehead night for the game at Cleveland

Everyone here views you as a clown so you never had any respect to lose.


I was willing to let it go and just play a similar terrible line up vs u, however it was brought to me that you would increase your minutes if i increased dirks' minutes. And when i stated i would increase dirks minutes u backed out like a weasel.

so now should u ever win a fake championship in the future this will be the screen shot posted over and over again on how you weaseled ur way to it! It will also be used by other teams in their pitch to Simmons in 5 years on how you cost him rookie of the yr and potential allstar game, and all first/second/third team NBA.

Simmons’ stars stink this year and he’s averaging 28 MPG which is plenty. Eat that L. He’s not gonna wanna play for your trash of a team and I even doubt we’ll be playing this in 5 years

we talkin bout teams benching players like KAT, Embiid (when he's healthy), playing players like ben simmons, oladipo, 20 mins per game. you aren't seeing that in real life.



What if they’re simultaneously trying to tank and avoid injury? Embiid IRL not too long ago was sitting back to backs. The sim is pretty crazy this year too... imagine losing KAT for 318 days like Jonas just was.

I’m not picking sides btw, but just trying to look at it from both pov’s. And I do see where you’re coming from... you’re playing your young dudes like normal and getting whatever pick you get, which is great and honorable, but where do you draw the lines? Especially with the NBA not really having done anything about it yet. Bledsoe was benched so blatantly last year that he took to Twitter to complain.

Do we pick certain players you can and can’t bench? Is there a minutes minimum? How many games can certain people sit? Then what happens if someone loses a player for a year because we forced them to play their star x amount of meaningless games and minutes while the sim is in its sadistic mode this season? Kinda a slippery slope :-?

they not benching players for that reason though. you know that. they have even said it that its so they can lose. i wouldn't mind if a team benches a player every now and then. but that's not the case. only cause you said it now, they are going to use that excuse and run with it.

bledsoe ended up being traded right after that. cause he did not want to be there. players aren't going to request trades in this game. look at mecca. he's out here talkin about how his players won't care about this when they win a chip in 5 years. yet in real life players would request trades. it's blatant exploitation of the game.




4real? I thought I saw some people mentioning injury risks. Maybe I just assumed they were trying to kill two birds with one stone (injuries/better pick). I haven’t read every single back n forth post about this tho, but with how many players crushed with injuries, it seems like the logical thing to do... it’s gunna be tough to regulate this tho. Like figuring out how far is too far.

yeah. it has nothing to do with injury risks. they have said that it's only for them to lose games. it is what it is

im just gonna stop talkin about this stuff cause there's no point. people gonna do what they wanna do... i cant stop them. bish said there will be some type of consequence for them so we'll see what happens.

Yeah when we started this, I think the lot of us thought there would be constant updates. Young guys who've been in the league for a year or two were either pretty damn cheap, I thought I had some steals with Winslow and Sabonis at the time.
