It seems like weekly here we have an arguement between those that know the truth (Daryl Morey is a golden god) and those that don't. So here's your chance to show that you can get a back up center even though you have a superstar starter. Or you can get that second point guard, or trade away your team cancer.
PASPN.net has created a mock GM league that is right up a lot of your alleys:
There will be 30 General Manager spots available: one for each NBA franchise. Since this is a new league, we will start by taking over each team's existing contracts. After that, it's up to you to re-tool your team via trades, draft picks, and free agent signings to form the best team that you can. Since PASPN leagues are governed by the rules of the NBA's collective bargaining agreement (CBA), the Mock GM game mixes fantasy basketball playing with the realities of the business of the NBA.
Once the NBA regular season begins, we will compete in an 18-week Head-to-Head season, where each team has a new opponent every week. You start 8 players (PG, SG, SF, PF, C, UTIL, UTIL, UTIL), and whoever scores more fantasy points wins the matchup. The scoring system is based on NBA.com's Efficiency rating: ((PTS + TRB + AST + STL + BLK) - ((FGA - FGM) + (FTA - FTM) + TOV )). The top 16 teams qualify for the Playoffs, which take place during the final 4 weeks of the regular season.
You can sign up here and show me what you're made of.
I'm specifically calling out everyone that thinks Morey isn't that good, or could have done even better. This is your chance to see just how hard it is to be a quality GM that doesn't make mistakes.
