Also, the way they sell on these layups kill me lol. Still entertaining though. This game reminded me of my matchup against CLE. Competitive first half, then the inevitable happened lol.


yeah I couldn't keep track of how many times I thought my guys could just go to the rim and they just settled for a mid range jumper.

and the amount of blocks from behind are madening. I think Frank one time made a nice pass to MPJ who was right under the basket by himself and somewhow Bagley blocked him from behind because the layup look so mechanically he would just dunk that.

my random FA pick up were horrible. There was a stretch in that 3rd qtr where morris or rozier would take a horrible shot and lebron had like 5 straight fast break hoops...he was a freight train.

U gotta admit the 1st half probably got the blood pressure up just a little?


Can't front, I was definitely shook. Didn't want to be the only favorite in the 1st round of the bubble tourney to get upset...

Spoiler:
...especially after all the schit I talked. :lol:


the 1st half was so crisp. we were playing controlled offense and limiting Lebron fast breaks. Them we got reckless and it was like a snowball effect.

That Shamet 3 probably didn't matter because I figured you would still win but it felt bigger...up 5 at half dude hits a fadway 3 from mid court.

At that point I was like this aint gunna be a good 2nd half :lol:


Hey man, at one point I thought it wouldn't be my night when Ntilikina score like 5 straight points :lol:

Should be a good one for sure. Both teams are built similarly. Superstar wing (LeBron/Harden), lots of size up front (Boogie, Bagley, Len, Kornet/Dwight, Zubac, Kaminsky), some good wing shooters (Kennard, Hood, Shamet/Tobias, Bullock, Milton), and a defensive specialist (O'Neale/Roberson) as well. Pretty much the same formula.

But Millsap and Rui as smaller mobile 4's probably give him the edge over me as they make him deeper. At this point Miami is the favorite. They scored 168 pts in round 1 too.

Raps just hoping to make it a game. :-?

Your squad will be good. But I think aside from one or two teams, the 2K Sweet 16 seems pretty accurate for a BaF playoff prediction.

2k did NOT like that Atlanta matchup for me. I'm waiting on the Sim but it treats the Kyrie/Middleton pairing the same way something will have to give. 2K Middleton has been buns.

Middleton averaged 20pts, 5ast, 4rebs in the sim. I think that was good for him. You can always trade him though. Maybe someone would give you a decent return :dontknow:

He was bomber for me after the acquisition. I'm not gonna make Sim decisions on the 2K tourney but 2K just doesn't like this pairing at all. I don't think Middleton went above 17 pts in five games :lol:

I mean let’s not overlook the obvious here, 2K is trash and has way to many variables to be taken seriously. Fun to kill time, but trash nonetheless.

Definitely entertaining for us during this extended off-season, but they have a LOT to work on. The CPU drops the ball on some of the easiest play making decisions. It's pretty ridiculous.

Yea that's wild. Besides the ones I walked away from, I've obviously been watching most of the games. Outside of the FA teams being blown out, and your game with ATL (which could've gone either way), The teams that I expected to win have all come away with the victory. But 2K has work on those glitches man.

Dude is so proud of his payroll he is the only GM with every player's contract terms and salary in his sig. What a cornball.

We will see if you rock the same format when you're GMing the T-Wolves.

Yeah I knew 2K was trash when I saw guys wide open in transition slow down so that a guy running like 30 feet behind can catch up and block a shot, guys having open driving lanes only to pull back for a crossover on absolutely nobody, double teams at halfcourt leaving open guys for dunks over and over again, guys spinning into defenders and losing the ball like they all have a little Julius Randle in them, etc.
