2K is a nice baseline for talent range but obviously teams won't and shouldn't overreact unless their teams are constantly ass or out of the playoffs when they thought they'd be a playoff team. Even then BAF might be diff. I'm counting on the nuances of playstyle stuff in BAF, depth because of the ticky tack injuries, more tinkering with lineups in BAF that will add some more wins to my team. West is tough this year so being top 6 for any of us besides Smash/Deez/Pooch will be a battle. But even they can struggle a bit if one of their top guys go down.

I can see some potential differences between BAF and 2K. They are mostly due to depth and the 1st/2nd tier players. Its going to be interesting to see what happens with Bagley, Bey, Harris, KP, Nunn, and Zion in BAF.

If things fall right, I could have a top 5 offense in the league.
BAF Pacers:

PG Doncic ( 94 )
SG Harris ( 79 )
SF Bey ( 78 )
PF Williamson ( 89 )
C Porzingis ( 84 )

Nunn ( 78 ) Bagley III ( 78 ), Gay ( 78 ), Reddish ( 76 )
Bitadze ( 74 ), Moody ( 73 ), Augustin ( 73 ), Bassey ( 70 )

i did one last 2k simulation. i think 4 sims should be enough to see any trends/outliers. and before anyone else overreacts to this, these sims are used to just give a preview of the next season. nothing more and can be entirely off compared to the actual BAF season.

Never go full 2010. He takes BAF way too seriously. I wasnt expecting him to go on a full unhinged rant because of 2k results but I guess he’s crazier than I thought.


Coward. We can talk schit on hoops all day. But when you start tryna get personal (age) you know I can go there all day. And considering you look like a meerkat, I am ready for the smoke if you wanted to go there.


You not talking hoops at this point. You just lying to everyone. You not telling everyone how you wanted me to break up my core for worse players in the SIM but yet you trying to take credit for my ring. That’s why I called you old cause you clearly unhinged. You’re butthurt right now and threatening to post my personal info cause you really feel some type of way about 2k. Lol. I’m not even gonna roast your looks because that’s not basketball.


Unhinged has no correlation to age. Stop tryna backtrack. You wanted to make an attempt to get personal by mentioning age. So if you dare go there, I can go hard with personal jokes for days. And please, you can’t roast my looks cuz you know you don’t measure up. So it’s in your best interest to keep this hoops lil guy.

Pretty happy with the SIM results, kind of what I expect my current rotation to do. Depending on how the BAF season starts I may use some of my depth pieces to grab a win now player if it improves a position of weakness.

But it looks like Avoiding a first and second round match up vs the Cavs would be the ideal situation to see if another team like the Bulls, Pacers, Nets or Magic can beat him, maybe even the SiM sixers can pull off a upset and do the dirty work for me.

I was hating 2K after my embarrassing beatdown at the hands of the Pacers last week, but I'm warming up to these full season sims :D

In BAF though, I think (as of now) I'm a 3-5 seed in the East who could easily be ousted in the first round. However, I could go either way midseason. I have 3 tradeable 1st round picks if an opportunity comes up and the timing seems right to push all-in and I have some nice not too expensive, starter quality bench pieces outside of my core to deal to contenders if I decide to build up some more future draft assets.

I haven't played 2K (or video games in general) in years but this next gen looks enticing. Graphics looks sick but gameplay still looks trash at least in 2K especially the shot selections.

it's 4/4 times. i dont mind seeing myself lose. i don't really have anything to prove at this point. i almost lost to the bulls in the last sim

e-balla also used a different sim for all the teams and he said i won every time as well. i think randle's all star season made me really tough to beat now since i have him as my 6th man

Yeah I noticed this too. Maybe they improve on the gameplay in the next couple years now that they have more time to work with the new gen systems
