    In 25,710 place in the 2K NBA Video Sim.
    Damn these sims are pretty accurate!!!
    They take into account the REAPER affect!!

    Went 16-16 on Awesomeo. Tiebreaker wasn’t good enough, and wheel wasn’t nice. Is what it is.

    I enjoy watching them, and am actually really looking forward to the bracket style.

    I missed it, why are the periods so short in the NBA 2K sim?

    I think because a lot of the players are so old, they can’t play a full game.

    Ah, the Uncle Drew scenario

  • yisman

    FYI, for the bracket contest, they’re having a group prize. If someone from your group wins, the other people in the group split a pool of money.

    I would suggest people use the league name RG when joining.

    And we’ll all be in the same group/league, unless someone has another league they want to join.

  • tribetown15

    So are there no daily contests through Awesomeo’s site now that bracket play has started?

    Just want to make sure I’m not missing something

    Correct, but FD is still having the daily single game contests.

    So….Passing time here. Here’s some guys on FD tonight who haven’t posted one of their high-ish ceiling type games yet, especially for there price. So, technically they may be “due.” I’ll just start with PG and work my way through..If I don’t list someone it’s just because there is nothing that stands out. There price seems fair, they’ve been pretty split in good games pulled and bad games and so on.

    PG:

    Luka- Has dozens of 60+ games and so far his highest has been 56.9
    Paul- Chris Paul has 20 games over 40 FD points, including 12 over 45, his highest so far is 38.1

    Seems like Dinwiddie has been “lucky” so far.
    Brogdon more likely to bust
    Payton has 9 games over 40 this season and already had 2 of them pulled
    Reggie has played 21 games this season. 10 of those would be a pretty good return on his salary (28 or more). 2 of those have been pulled.
    Ish has plenty of strong games for his price, but his best game of the season has already been pulled.

    White- Has 19 games this season over 30, and has yet to pull one over 20.
    DJ- Has 25 games over 20 and 10 over 30. Has yet to pull a game over 30, and only 1 of the 4 over 20.

    Man you got some time on your hands to put together this info…….lol………..I wonder if the same “game number” can be pulled? I would think so

    Yeah, I mean I’m home and not working, nothing to really research. I’ve 15 hours until the next LOL slate. It’s not that difficult. FD has these games in the game logs, cross reference to full season game logs. Quick counting. I think it took like 20 minutes to go through the PG’s.

    Not sure, but obviously the chances of pulling the same game twice is slim.

    Yea I here you. I wanted to to try look into players like that, but heck it is so random, who knows what you are going get. I mean the prices don’t move at all, so it gets really boring again. I am still waiting to KP to have a ceiling game at this cheap price…….lol

    Anyone have any predictions/ideas about the bracket challenge? Is that being discussed anywhere?

    Well, started doing SG and accidentally deleted it…so quick recap of what I figured…

    Harden I believe I wrote has 17 games over 65 and has only pulled 1 over 60 so far and 2 floor games.

    Butler has a whole bunch of games over 45. I think it was 17 too and yet to pull one over 40.

    Same for Booker.

    LeVert has a whole bunch of sub 30 point games and yet to pull one. He’s due for a bust.

    Ross has 14 games over 30, and hasn’t pulled one yet.

    Bruce Brown isn’t a great option, but odds suggest he can’t possibly pull another game in the teens.

    For the single game that Awesemo is running through FD, why are players missing from the ‘player pool’? No Manu or Nestrerovic but has Mohammed who didn’t join the Spurs until sometime towards the end of February. Also no Vinnie Johnson for Detroit who started 21 games and played in all 82 for them that year.

    I don’t have any ideas. I wish there was a site that posting player ratings for the various teams. I don’t have the video game.

    Anyone joining under the RG League, post here, so we can have an idea of how many we have.

    “If an entry from your league places highest among all entries from leagues with 5 or more users, your league will win $3,000 total to be split among all leaguemates.”

    I also noticed this “We put this tournament together as quickly as possible to give sports fans some much needed entertainment and don’t have functionality allowing us to validate whether your league name is already in use. Therefore, you need to think of something unusual preferably with letters, numbers and special characters.”

    But I don’t see what the harm is. If I enter RG and someone else has entered using RG, it just means we’ll have more league members. It would mean less prizes per person if the league won, but also a better chance at winning.

  • fightingjohn

    i will join tonight under the RG league. What is the exact name we need to enter for the league?

    I did it as well, using RG. So far already regretting tonights game as If they are using rosters (same as for the FD free) I’m leaning Pistons but took Spurs. Then noticed as I posted above no ‘Manu or Nestrerovic’

  • sideshowgreg

    Manu and Nestrerovic are apparently not in the game.

    Spurs only have 6 players? Do they have randoms on the bench or something?

    Nevermind, i see on FD they have 3 other cheapies who I assume are super low rated.

    The Randoms are the likes of John Johnson, Michael Davis, and William Jones.

    Game also has Dawkins on the roster for the Pistons, but he was waived in February for Long.
