Hello and welcome to the extremely accurate and definitive simulation of One (1) season of NBA basketball as played by the teams from this year's Be Your Own GM thread.

Here's a spreedsheet containing a list of each team's roster.
Here are the voting results for the game.
code:

3. Pelicans
4. Spurs 
5. Kings

8. Twolves
About the Simulation

The games will be simulated in NBA 2k13, as it is the most actively modded 2k game. I'm using NBA 2k13's URB mod because the roster is updated frequently and the player ratings are achieved using advanced stats. If you enjoy near-obsessive amounts of attention to detail in your simulations and want to simulate the 1989 NBA season using accurate jerseys, shoes, and courts, I suggest checking it out. Anyways I will be the puppetmaster in that I'm pressing "Simulate" each time but I'm going to be totally hands off otherwise, don't shoot the messenger if your glorious group of boys fail to win a game.

Because of the limitations of the mod, we're going to be simulating the 2016 NBA schedule. Sorry, but that's what the mod defaults to and players would retire before the beginning of the 2017 season, making some rosters impossible (Dirk and Jared Dudley announced their retirements on the first day of the season, so they won't be available next season.) I turned off injuries because it'd be really uninteresting for someone's season to get derailed by a digital injury and it would probably cause them to not care about the simulation. (EDIT: Injuries will now be turned on due to thread demand.)

I will be doing one week of games at a time and will post them once every other day unless something comes up and I miss a day. They'll all follow the format of the next post, unless there's a huge demand for an additional section or feature. Keep in mind that this is a ton of work already and I'm not going to be able to post every team's stats every week, but I'll try to accommodate you if you ask how a certain player or lineup is doing.

Each post will contain:
- That week's scores, separated by day
- Players of the Week (decided by the game)
- Rookie watch (the game decides what 5 rookies are playing the best and has a list of their stats)
- Standings
- Power rankings (decided by the game)
- Injury report
- All-star voting (once the results start coming in, takes a while)

Rosters and Changes

Lineups - I referred to the spreadsheet and/or your team pimping posts to set the starting lineups/sixth man situation, but those aren't set in stone. If your team is struggling or you just want to switch things up, let me know your changes and I'll do them

Trades - As per voting in the BYOGM thread, trades will not be allowed.

Free Agents - There are players in the FA pool that never went up for draft, but I'm not gonna post them and nobody's going to be allowed to sign them. Tough luck.

Coaches - The game has coaches and coach grades, but there aren't enough replacement/fake coaches to replace every coach with a neutral/bad one, plus they all vary wildly in attributes as well. What I did was assign a middling fake coach to teams that have noticeably above average coaches (Spurs, Celtics, Mavericks, etc.) There's really no other way I can even the playing field, so it'll have to do.

Endgame

Once the regular season ends, we'll do a prediction poll for MVP, Rookie of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year etc and then match them up to the game's awards because polls are fun to do. The winner of the championship will get a nice avatar designed by me so you can show off to all of your friends

OPENING WEEK of the NBA SEASON! It's a short week, only five days of games. Get ready to have so much fun




Day One



Knicks 97 - Cavs 87
Jazz 111 - Blazers 101
Spurs 107 - Warriors 104


Day Two



Mavs 89 - Pacers 93
Heat 105 - Magic 121
Nets 97 - Celtics 130
Pistons 92 - Raptors 88
Timberwolves 85 - Grizzlies 114
Hornets 120 - Bucks 106
Nuggets 107 - Pelicans 95
Thunder 83 - Sixers 113
Kings 96 - Suns 111
Rockets 95 - Lakers 116


Day Three



Wizards 114 - Hawks 87
Celtics 118 - Bulls 100
Clippers 93 - Blazers 89
Spurs 94 - Kings 103


Day Four



Cavs 69 - Raptors 105
Pacers 95 - Nets 111
Magic 111 - Pistons 120
Hornets 89 - Heat 102
Suns 107 - Thunder 118
Rockets 110 - Mavs 88
Lakers 117 - Jazz 101
Warriors 118 - Pelicans 120


Day Five



Hawks 89 - Sixers 97
Celtics 114 - Hornets 106
Magic 113 - Cavs 99
Grizzlies 133 - Knicks 98
Pacers 85 - Bulls 109
Nets 95 - Bucks 115
Pelicans 98 - Spurs 118
Blazers 106 - Nuggets 84
Timberwolves 102 - Kings 118





























I think that's it! Surely my Celtics are unbeatable and they will win every single game. Clear Lakers and Celtics bias. Also, the game apparently does not think very much about the whole "surround Lebron with scrubs" strategy, but maybe that will change. Let me know if I missed anything huge and good luck to your team!

I agree with this. Joel Embiid is worth a lot more if you know he's good for all 82 as opposed to the 17.4 games he will actually play before a new part of his body explodes

I'm all for turning on injuries for maximum chaos, honestly

They'll be on for the rest of the season and I'll add an injuries section to each post

The problem with injuries is that we would be reliant on the AI to reset lineups, unless we want to make Cool Buff Man manually fix them.

True of a ton of guys, especially older ones. There are 10 year vets who have NEVER played 80 games and that's very reflected in their stats and reputations

He's the best example though. Davis KAT and Jokic went for 150+ and he went for 82 in part because lots of posters consider him unlikely to ever play a real season

It's not a huge deal compared to what it took to set the lineups and do the draft in the first place

I'll resim week 2 onwards with injuries, but I'm not redoing week 1 cuz I already took all the screenshots. Injury prone teams consider yourself lucky that you didn't die in the first week (myself included)

He's not starting, it's sorted by points by default, no worries. Gordon's your pg but your coach really likes putting Parker in
