Props to Franky for getting this new league on the right track; keeping the number of teams to a small amount and made up with the group of players that were actively playing their games in the "dead" league. I gotta admit that 20 teams was a bit greedy on my part and the people that were signing up and didn't even show up to play a single game was really disappointing. I had no problems with some of people that dropped out because at least they had the courtesy to let me know that they wanted out.

This new league has the making of being an very active because like I said before, the members were the same that kept the other one alive. Too bad I didn't show up on time to sign up but oh well :( ....I'm rooting for you guys!


If someone doesn't show up for the deadline on Friday I can sign you up since you were in the last league. I'll keep you up to date. Hopefully there are no problems though.

Are you going to write up a strict code of ethics and list of rules? If not, we'll have too many cheesers and won't be able to maintain a successful league. </AceFan>

Only FrankySox will get that.


Yes those are all coming after Fridays deadline. I know one of the rules in no more than 10 shots in the paint per quarter and you can only run the 24 second shot clock down to 1 twice in a row. =)

Those are some pretty strict rules. Especially that last one-- I like to run plays and occasionally I'm shut down, thus a couple of buzzer beaters. No more than 10 shots in the paint per quarter, yeah I can do with that.

I hope you're joking about the 10 shots in the paint rule. As you know I like to play the inside game with West and Chandler, or drive with CP3, and if you collapse there go to Peja and others outside. I don't like to run up and down the court all the time.

Word. I like to play an inside out game with Shaq and Amare.

LMAO... Franky was joking, guys. Like I said, only he would get what I said. I was ripping on how AceFan's NCAA 09 league had a strict code of ethics and regulations. FrankySox would be the last person to put restrictions on his league.

Wait... So your Gamertag is Red Sox and your CAG name is Rays? Does not compute.

It won't let me even find the league, much less join, without an invitation.

So how are everyone's franchises going? I'm using the Bulls, and though I haven't played nearly as many games as in, say, my NHL 09 dynasty, I'm loving this so far. Playing 7 minute quarters on All-Star, I'm 16 games in, sitting at 9-7 after a thrilling overtime win in San Antonio. That's good for 1st by 1 game in the division and 4th in the Eastern Conference.

Derrick Rose leads the league in scoring with 23.6 PPG. On the downside, Drew Gooden, playing in only his 6th game of the season after just coming back from a separated shoulder, got the same injury on a loose ball dive and is out another 2-4 weeks, or 5-9 games. He's the Kevin Nash of my team.

Are you flipping kidding me I am a guy who plays deep into a franchise mode. And I just got to my 7 year because I kept restarting due to constant roster update. The 2k insider is cool but its making me always want to start the game over again.

Usually by this time I am on my 11 or 12 year.

Anyway, its going great my team is a mix of new and old players but most likely generated players that i edited so that they actually turn out good. Useally I make 3 superstars (clones of Bron Bron, Kobe, T-Mac,ETC) then some niche guys like pure shooters or pure slashers or bangers. That way there is a steady stream of good players coming into the league.

I havent played in a couple days but I know the top score is a made up guy who just dominates. SF averaging just over 30 points. Shit is tight.

Do you play 82 games? Sim any of them? How long of quarters? To play 82 game seasons, even on 5 minute quarters, to that extent must give you little time to play other games. That's fucking dedication. I have too many games, I guess, and not enough of an attention span.

And yes there are no restrictions in this league, just join and play.

I guess I won't be able to join the league. I wasn't home, but my brother and my dad were. Way to ignore the UPS guy..

They're rescheduling it for tomorrow. Whatever guys, I'll be a couple of hours and late and I'm getting the boot. =p

Call UPS, as long as it's before 7 PM you can arrange a same day will call pickup. They'll call you when it's back at the local office and you can go pick it up there.

Also, in regards to scheduling, there's something that would work to get us an even 20 games. If we split the league into two divisions, we could play each team within our division four times, and the teams in the other division twice. That'd come to an even 20 games.

If you hit X on any of the menus to bring up help, it will scroll the help options where the sports ticker is. I've had to do that on a lot of occasions because everything isn't listed in the manual :bomb:

I could pick it up, but I don't want to waste my gas for the sake of joining this league.

And Franky, I'm sure I'll be able to join by then. 8AM was the deadline, and they deliver here early around 11AM. It's just that my brother was a douche to answer the door, my dad was busy, and I was out running errands. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We are full right now. There are two people on the waiting list and I'm sure if all the people don't join one of those two will, but I'll put you on the list.

I'm going to go ahead and send out invites to those on the waiting list, if someone joins before you shinryuu I'm sorry, but I think I'd like to keep the deadline at 8am. I think two days is ample time to join a league, sorry your console red ringed, if you had played a few more games I would have probably given you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe nobody on the list will join so you could join anyways when you get your console tomorrow. At this point I'm making it a first come first serve for the last spot.

I REALLY REALLY do not want to be a dick here, but I also really want this league to run well. I think this decision is in the best interest of the league.

By the way, do you guys mind if I use this thread just for general NBA 2k talk? I would use the NBA 2k9 thread but it seems like all the people who would actually talk in that thread are in here so whats the point?

I doubt anyone will mind if we have general game discussion here. I used this thread since the other, as you said, is inactive and people are in here.

I play 82 games and sim none. I can't stand to play and sim. I have a franchise to play and one just to sim all games and do the GM stuff myself. But now I see how you could get through all that already.

In my franchise, the Cavs are the team to crush on- two losses to my Bulls by 17 and 33 points, with Rose going for 40 and 45. But it looks like the real game isn't going that way tonight.

I have played with the guy that has red ringed and I think it would benefit everyone here if he gets the time to join tomorrow. Trust me, he will play the most games out of all of us and even when my game disconected on him, he was ready for a rematch immediately. A great waste if he can't join the league.

Well I sent a PM to Goodfella so no response from him and shinryuu will be good to go. My major concern is that I don't want this to turn into "I'll have it tomorrow" thing for a week. If I knew for certain he'd have it tomorrow then no problem.
