**NBA BTTF VI** -- 2ND GREATEST THREAD IN NBA FORUM HISTORY


Koya

Recommended Posts

A year ago today, we were bemoaning how awful it would soon be with Hillary as President - but on the bright side, the Patriots haven't won squat and stupid Tom Brady has to sit for four games, certainly dooming their season.  

But all that's ok, you guy's roped poor ol' Koya, a rookie with almost no NBA knowledge, to take the last and final spot.  Suckas. :banned:

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!   GET YOUR FBG-WIS-NBA-BTTF VI, HERE!

 

LINK TO LAST YEAR'S GOOGLE DOC

 

2016-2017 Recap and Participants:

Final Four: Koya, Scoobus, Kev4029, Yo Mama

Runner Up: Scoobus 

CHAMPION: Koya 

Congrats to all the playoff participants, and a good season by all!

 

WHO IS IN FOR '17-18

I believe below is correct re: holdovers, just took them from the OP of last season, so let me know if it changed.

TIME IS LIMITED - LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE IN.  If we don't have confirmations by week's end at the latest, we will find replacements.

NOTE: WIS HAS BEEN SOLD TO SPORTSHUB. All indications are this is a positive move.  At worst, it appears there will be status quo for the user interface and engine, but it's quite possible appropriate updates may in fact occur.  Not likely to happen before the season starts, but perhaps we have some refinements to the engine before we start the SIM component of this.

RULES (This is where TRE's expertise and delightful disposition come into play, so direct questions to him)

Draft/Roster Size: 18 Rounds, keep best 12 for WIS (assuming that remains the same)

Format: Daily blind bid auction

Summary: Each day there will be 6 to 10 players up for auction simultaneously. Each team is allotted $100 in auction funds. Teams can bid up to their available funds for any individual player up for auction. Owners can place bids on multiple players during a bidding cycle, e.g. you can bid $100 on every player on day one. See bid prioritization for more info. No decimal bids -- any decimal will be rounded down to a whole number (i.e. $10.88 will be a $10 bid)

Bidding: Send one email per team with all daily bids to WISRUTHROLL@GMAIL.COM. The deadline will be 11:00 EDT so TRE can award the bids before the start of the following day.

Send email in the player order provided - include clear instruction of your 3 priority players (if you're using them). Be sure and include your FBG name. 

Example Email:

1. Davis 100
2. Curry 100 (1st PRIORITY)
3. Harden 5
4. James 6
5. Westbrook 10 (2nd PRIORITY)
6. Durant 15 (3rd PRIORITY)

You can prioritize up to three bids per day (optional). These bids will be processed first if an owner has multiple successful bids in a day.


Excluded prioritized bids, auctions will be processed in the order of the rankings, e.g. the player ranked #3 will be awarded before player #4. If an owner doesn't have enough funds available due to a player awarded earlier in the day's processing, the bid on the latter player would be invalid.

**If you want to void bids after winning a certain player or position, you must include those instructions.

Auction tiebreakers:
1. amount of money remaining in budget at the time the player is processed. More=better.
2. dice roll
 

Auction Schedule will be set by TRE.

Thanks @Spartans Rule for the following.  I added not about no carryover of minutes from reg season to playoffs

If you build a logical basketball team, and your players perform well in the season, you'll do fine. That said, here's what everything does in the sim:

Usage: Explained at the link HERE better than I could.

Shooting percentages and turnovers: Are covered under usage.

Minutes: Your players will be allowed to play about the number of minutes they played in real life. If you don't have enough minutes, your players will fatigue, be ineffective, and possibly get injured (there are no random injuries, just fatigue-related ones). NOTE: YOU CAN NOT HOLD OVER UNUSED MINUTES FROM THE REGULAR SEASON IN THE PLAYOFFS. 

Position Effectiveness: Players who have less than 100% at a position will not perform up to their full capabilities. You'll probably notice that outside of pure point guards and giant oafish centers, most players are 100% at multiple positions, so you have some flexibility.

Assists: Having more of them will positively affect your team's FG%.

Rebounds: Function exactly as you'd expect them to.

Blocks and steals: Players accumulate them at roughly real-life rates, and I assume they cause more missed shots and turnovers for the other team.

Defensive rating: Lowers or raises the FG% of the player he's guarding. Good luck figuring out how to draft players who get good D ratings. Also note that if a player got an 80 or 90 rating exactly, it was probably because he made first or second team all-defense. We're not going to wait for the all-defense teams to be picked, so don't assume a guy who's had a 90 five straight years will get one again.

Deal me out of this one for now.

If you get stuck at 23, I could probably be guilt-tripped into drafting but I'd prefer running this as a regular fantasy league vs. a WIS sim.

NOOOOOOOO!!!

 

sucks to lose the crew. Do reconsider, but we will start looking for new blood just in case.

This is far superior than a run of the mill fantasy league.

I've come to loathe WIS and their hoops sim in particular.

They're a SaaS provider whether they think they are or not.  Development is part of the business.  I'm tired of the same old sim with the same old ####.

Are you not curious if we will finally see improvements and investments with the new SportsHub ownership? Looks like a group that could benefit from the investment and recognizes it.

The SIM is like 1/10 the fun for me. I most enjoy the draft. That's the best part. Where else was Larry Sanders drafted last year?! It gets me ready for the season and I learn things about players I barely know going in.

That's all there regardless of the SIM. :shrug:

Whoa now, I'm not looking for extra work.

This thing is dying in here though.

Hey I did my work - and I'm perhaps the least knowledgeable NBA guy here!

Ill try to get one going later if possible. No longer sitting around recovering from surgery, have actual work to do.
