Soiled Meat

Just sent my bids, I feel like I'm either going to end up with nothing, or 5 middling big men.

Btw, is it possible to end up with more than 15 players? Does the max of 15 apply to the whole process or just at the end?

Is your bidding done when your roster fills up regardless of how many dudes you get ??

Or should I not even put lowball bids in on players I don't want? Or can we start trading dudes for cash or even more dudes if we collect too many dudes too early??

Did dis dude just did dis?

Does anybody know how to calculate 35% of $300!???

HOw OLD IS UDONIS HASLEM????

Here's a number for y'all -- 0.0000025153857763318967685677393389566

Multiply any player's current salary by that to see what it's worth in proportion to your $300

It's useless because the NBA salary cap means basically every max player is underpaid, and there's widespread agreement that all other players are both over/underpaid. LeBron's getting $84

Fittingly, 35% of $300 is $105, which is basically the same as 106, and this symmetry suggests you plan on bidding $176 on Udonis Haslem, which will certainly beat my $175 bid for him. Well played, sir, your mastery of numbers shames me.

ugh this is wrong I used the luxury tax threshold of $119m rather than the cap max of $99m. Should been more like 0.0000030274590536162998395446701583361

I really hope I only get 1 of the 2 C's I bid on, having them both would screw up my carefully plotted capology manipulations. How many other people bid $150+ for Andre Drummond?

I bid on 6 guys, might have an outside shot at 1 of them, but the only way to win is to get a STAR so gotta be smart with the money. Only Real GM's will get that.

You can only bid once for all your players in a single PM. Maybe Deadbeat will cut you some slack though.

I made maybe 3 real bids and about 6 more lowballs and $1 bids. There were a lot of rookies I just didn't want to chance on, and also I forgot JaMychal Green existed until just after I sent my bids despite being him at the top of the list.

I didn't make any realistic bids. I had some relatively high ones there for guys like Blake and Drummond but kept revising them downwards until it was nothing cause I don't like either guy. I forgot to bid on jingles though and I wish I had.

"I forgot to bid on a dude" is basically as competent as actual GMs. How many times has a GM read about a signing and thought "poo poo I forgot that guy existed"

To clarify - I read this as I can submit in my PM bids for multiple players, but even if I am the highest bidder on more than one player I would only win one auction and get one player. If I am the highest bidder on more than one player, how is it decided which one I win? The one I bid more money on? Or the order they are listed in the PM/Email? Or some other factor?

Nah it just means that if you submit a bid you can't re-submit a bid if you read something that you believe from a GM and readjust your numbers. So just make sure whoever you're bidding on is what you really want to pay for it because that's what I'll be using as a finalized thing.

Also I forgot to mention if you guys aren't bidding on a player you can just leave them out of the list. Just post the ones you want.

I've already got 19 lists, so about 11 more. Maybe it'll be an early reveal! Anybody within 2 hours of the deadline I''ll start writing PMs to remind you in case you forgot or something.
