NBA Sim league starting in 2002-03 season 

Post#1 » by stackdatcheese » Wed Jun 2, 2021 1:32 pm

Hey guys,

This isn’t fantasy, rather an NBA sim league using the game "Fast Break Basketball" beginning during the 2002-03 NBA season. I created the league file myself and it is based on rosters as of October 2002.

Have four GMs right now including myself so plenty of spots open!

Here is a link where you can view every team's roster that has player ratings and salary:

The West is stacked with the Dallas Mavericks (Dirk and Nash), the Lakers (Kobe and Shaq) and the Spurs (Duncan, young Parker/Ginobli). Then you've got stars like Iverson and McGrady in the East.

It's also the year before the LeBron/Wade/Melo/Bosh draft.

If you're not familiar with sim leagues, I'll explain a bit:

Basically, you act as the GM for a team. That means you make trades, attempt to sign players in the offseason, draft players and are responsible for deciding what system your team runs and what players they run it through (in the game this just amounts to whether you want your team to run a fast or slow pace, how aggressive you want them to play defense and whether to focus on inside scoring or 3-point shooting).

You tell me what to do, I input it and run the sim. I then upload the results daily. It should take a little less than a month to complete a full season and we can run for as many seasons as we like.

It's all run through a message board forum, which can be found here:

It's quite fun and a great community to be a part of as a basketball fan in my experience. I hope you'll join if you're interested.

The rest of the rules for the league are explained in greater detail on the forum. I used other similar leagues I've seen to sort of form a skeleton, but if you join I'm open to any suggestions you have on how to make it better.

Hope to see you there!
