deni and Onyeka Okongwu fit the bill for my team even okoro with his supposed defense..damn other than Ball i know nothing about these guys


That's impressive actually. Imagine not only being a trash mock, but you actually compare someone to Jeryl Sasser. Kudos to whoever did that mock, that's a name I haven't heard in a while.

Now on to Detroit, why isn’t anyone talking about the possibility of adding the #1 overall pick to a young core of Tyler Herro, Mitchell Robinson? And on top of all that, they also have the 4th overall pick??? Smh. Not to mention, Paschall, Dort, Porter JR., and a crazy collection of future picks? Context may have been drunk last night, but the man has a right to celebrate. #Respect

Ok so the T’Wolves are just gonna suddenly become a top defensive team huh? Strick seems to have been a great addition to the game. A rookie who operates like a vet? Yikes! Good luck scoring 100+ against that team. Welcome to the Wild Wild West!!!

Dejounte Murray/JJ Barea
Gary Harris/Jordan Clarkson/Nickeil Alexander-Walker
OG Anunoby/Rodney McGruder
Otto Porter/Nicolas Claxton/TJ Leaf
Jarrett Allen/Hassan Whiteside/Ivan Rabb

Oh and they have over $100 in cap space...

I've had some playoff beasts and that never carried over bro, Mecca tweeted them and they said they go off strictly regular season stats. I think he might move it too, but if he makes the right pick he could put together a young big three with Morant and JJJ.


Not sure when Mecca tweeted them, but I'm assuming it was in the past. But let's just say, I know for a fact that they will be taking IRL NBA Playoffs bubble performance and analytics into consideration when doing this season's player ratings. Due to the NBA's shortened regular season and the unprecedented circumstances of COVID-19.

Not taking away from what you've managed to do yet again, by overhauling your team like only you can. Cuz you know I respect your GM skills. But just giving you the info I'm privy to.


I don't think anyone has been able to pin point EXACTLY what goes into this sim. It's not egregious, but it's definitely produced some odd results from time to time. At times we've seen players with two and a half stars out play four, four and half star guys. Not to mention in season progress that's made that's really hard to follow with just a screenshot.

We've seen Draymond Green be a walking triple double.
We've seen James Harden be an elite defender.
There are certain players that just never seem to produce on multiple teams.

Like everyone else, just waiting on those damn ratings to be released :lol:


True. But when one gets tired of all the guesswork and studying tendencies they are taught to go straight to the source.

Add Dennis Shroeder to Drummond, KP, Graham, Oubre, Wood...man these deals benefited everybody. I’m still strategizing how to dismantle the twin towers in Denver, but these guards are gonna be annoying.

anyone want roberson contract can be a $50 EL contract until he signs with a team in real life which is not a guarantee given his injury situation.. can place him on the EL and target tier 2 free agents (which i would be doing if i keep him... couple of high 3 point percentage players available in that range..)

There’s a difference when you stick to your plan though. Context doesn’t strike me as a GM who cares about the wait. He’s been sticking to a process, and it’s paying off. Young studs and picks galore. If I were in a youth movement I’d take his situation in a heartbeat.

True, but so was Melo until the Murray trade. It may not take as long as we think with all those assets. Just gotta let the young guys develop in the meanwhile. I’m sure Herro’s play this season came as an early gift lol.
