30 for 30: Raptors

 Hello once again athletes!!!

It’s another 30 for 30 time. This time, we have the best NBA team in Canada! Oh, they only have one, that’s right. Nevertheless it’s time to #BombforWiggans. Let’s do this like Nike! (P.S. That logo though!)

 Missed playoffs

PPG: 97.2 (16th) RPG: 40.2 (28th) APG: 21.5 (20th) PA: 98.7 (17th)

—Players lost in offseason—

  • Andrea Bargiani (Trade)
  • Marcus Camby (Free agency)

—Players acquired in offseason—-

  • Steve Novak (Trade)
  • Austin Daye (Free agency)
  • D.J. Augustin (Free agency)

It’s not hard to tell the Raptors are trying to bomb this season. In an interview with Andrew Wiggans, projected 2014 Draft 1st overall pick, Wiggans said his dream team to go to would be Toronto, as he is a Canada native. Ever since Bosh left Toronto, they have been trying to recover, and I think Wiggans can help some, but they need more pieces. Rudy Gay is great for them, and Valenciunas could grow into a nice player. They also need to give T-Ross some more minutes, just saying.

Record- 19-63, 15th in East

Lineup- Augustin, Ross, Gay, Johnson, Valenciunas

That’s not that hard, is it? Exactly. Leave your entry in the comments section below. The winner will be announced after I have had time to contemplate. Sorry if this was a short post, but you know, it’s pretty important.

Guess the Mystery Athlete! Old School Edition!

 Hello once again athletes!!!

It is contest time! This time, we have Guess the Mystery Athlete! Last time, I gave 5 clues about:

 Jason Kidd!

And the athlete who got it correct first was: Conner012367

Everyone who commented got it correct, so congrats to everyone. This time, I have a harder challenge. It is an old-school player! I felt like it was time to switch it up, even for just once. If you like an alternation between old-school and current players, let me know in the comments below. Here are the 5 clues for this old-school player:

  • Drafted in 1976 by Milwaukee
  • Is a Hall of Famer
  • Was the leagues best scorer in the ’80’s
  • Was traded in 1980 to Denver for aging George McGinnis
  • Played for just 4 tems throughout his successful career

This is I hope will be quite challenging. Like I said, if this isn’t a good idea just drop a comment and let me know.

30 for 30: 76ers

 Hello once again athletes!!!

It’s been a little while since we’ve had a 30 for 30 I felt, so this week we will have… Oh, let’s say 4 with 2 contests and a filler post day. Sound good? Great. This 30 for 30, we have the 76ers. Let’s do this like Nike!

 Missed playoffs

PPG: 93.2 (30th) RPG: 41.3 (20th) APG: 22.8 (11th) PA: 96.5 (9th)

—-Players lost in offseason—

  • Andrew Bynum (Free agency)
  • Jrue Holiday (Trade)

—-Players acquired in offseason—-

  • Nerlens Noel (Trade)
  • Royce White (Trade)
  • Furkan Aldemir (Trade)
  • James Anderson (Free agency)
  • Michael Carter-Williams (Draft)
  • Arsalan Kazemi (Trade)
  • Tony Wroten (Trade)

Philly fans, cover your eyes. The 76ers will straight suck ducks this year. My guess is it’s par of the whole “Bomb for Wiggans” fiasco. I’m not a fan of this. However, it is their team and they can do whatever with it. I think they will be in the bottom-3 of the East with Toronto and Boston. Hopefully this pays off and they get lucky in the lottery. If not, good luck with the high expetations Philly brings.

—-Projections—-

Record- 33-49, 13th in East

Lineup- Carter-Williams, Wilkins, Turner, Young, Hawes

Association Update!

 Hello once again athletes!!!

The picture is very relevant, trust me. Welcome to my first Online Association Update! I’ve been playing quite a lot of it, considering I’m MyCareer-less. But hey, I’m not even mad. Okay, I’m pretty mad, but still, association is pretty addicting. Let’s do this like Nike!

So, in the Online Association, I’m playing against about 15 of my friends, so that leaves 14 CPU teams. One of my friends decided to be funny and pick the Thunder, so I picked the Bobcats. It was random draft order, and I actually like the jerseys they have, NBA Green and Classic Home II or III I believe are the Cougars ones. I ended up with the 12th pick.

In the first round, I drafted Rajon Rondo, which I thought was good at the time, but later realized I like a scoring PG. In the second round. I picked up Zach Randolph. I liked having a big body down low-post, but can also hit the occasional jumper (with correct shot release). I neglected the fact they were pretty expensive, however. In the third and forth rounds, I picked up Kawhi Leonard and Chandler Parsons. I like them because they have the inside-outside game, and used up very little cap space (About 2.5 million for both). I don’t quite remember where I drafted the others, but I got MarShon Brooks, Omer Asik, Brandon Bass, Gary Neal, Marco Bellineli, Mike Miller (The Killer), Greivis Vasquez, and Nick Young. 

I like the guys I have because I can run a fast-break, 3-point shooting style of play, somewhat similar of what I like in MyTeam. I made quite a bit of trades in the offseason, I won’t lie. I traded Rondo, Randolph, and Brooks to the Nuggets for Steph Curry and Brook Lopez aka Bropez. I wanted a nice big man because Randolph was my starting C, and came in at 6’8″. I freed up so much cap space that I pursued Dwight Howard, offering him an 18.5 million dollar deal, in which he accepted. I didn’t have enough regular cap space to pursue Paul Millsap, but I had a lot of hard-cap space left so I offered him like 3 years, 31 million. I also traded Asik for Andrew Nicholson, mostly because Asik’s salary for the ’14-’15 season is ridiculously high at around 13 million. 

That’s my progress to this point. Tell me if you think my moves are good or bad in the comments below.
