    Use this link, and then click the search button, and then search the user created teams, then when you find one, click add to game.

    http://www.whatifsports.com/nba/default.asp

    My team from the one we did last year is still on there, so if you still have a team on there from last year, and didn't delete it, it should still be there.

    I simulated a game with my old team, against the Magic Rat Pacers from last year, and everything worked fine.

    The site looks a little different than it did last year, but it still appears to work the same, and it still has the option to generate play-by-play for the boxscore.

    It does appear that if we make exhibition teams to simulate with, we will have to use the $42 million salary cap, the only way to get around that is to have a paid league.

    If you already have an account on there, use this link below, then click the Manage My Team(s) button at the top, and it will take you to the League Overview, and you can click on the link to the Draft Center.

    http://www.whatifsports.com/nba-l/default.shtm

    If you don't have an account on there, just sign up real quick, it's free, then you can go to the above link to create your exhibition team, then use the link I put at the very top of this post to simulate against other user created teams.

    I'm gonna sit this one out unless you need someone. I don't feel like devoting the time.

    I'll be gone for 4-5 days mid-august, but assuming we can get around that, I should be good to go.

    Shouldn't be a problem.

    The draft should be wrapped up by then, if not you can have someone make your last couple picks for you.

    Foretaz: Last season we had an unlimited salary cap so you just had to find the best player reguardless of the price. Looks like the are limiting us to 42M. All last years strategies are out the window.... pardon the pun, but it's a whole new ball game.

    There has been some minor changes in the draft order.

    1. Burnzone
    2. SycamoreKen
    3. Able
    4. Travmil
    5. Go !!!!!
    6. Soup is good
    7. Kstat
    8. Foretaz
    9. Magic Rat
    10. Roaming Gnome
    11. IndyPacers67
    12. Wooolus
    13. Dipperdunk
    14. MSA2CF

    We didn't have a 16th player step forward so I removed myself from the game. I think I'll still be able to select a team & run the games as planned.

    I have the teams divided into two conferences & a schedule made out. I'll get the schedule a little later but this is the conference alignment.

    Sycamore Ken
    Abel
    Travmil
    Soup is Good
    Kstat
    Roaming Gnome
    Wooolus

    Magic Rat
    IndianaPacer67
    Dipperdunk
    MSA2CF

    Each team will play each conference opponent 4 times, 2 home & 2 away games.

    Each team will also play each non-conference opponent twice, one home & one away game.

    That should be a 38 game regular season spread over 23 days. I'll start the season about a day after the draft ends.

    I'm not sure how we should do the playoffs this year. If you have any suggestions I'm more than happy to listen.

    Since I'm out of the game I won't have a problem with stepping in & making selections for those that are too slow in picking a player.

    Jose, I'm going to be unbelievably busy for the next week (friends moving out of state, didn't see it coming). You can have my spot, or you can make my picks for me until I am able to play, whichever you choose.

    [edit]Besides, if you had to sit out after setting this up for everyone, I'd feel bad. Especially since I won't be able to devote my full attention to it. [/edit]

    Yea, bail out after you find out who is going to kick your butt and be conference champ.
