2k18 - 76ers "the process needs results"

So I am going to go with a 76ers as my team as they are such a fun team to rebuild and use. I don't expect to get a lot of replies and views on this so I am doing it more for myself then anything. One good thing about using them as if they make the playoffs and win a round or two or get a top 5 pick both are believable. The last year 2 years I have played with my Hawks and since they are boring this year I am switching it up. I plan to go 5+ years as once I get started on this I will get hooked. I don't have any fancy skills like photoshop so don't expect anything like that.

Mode - I always use my GM, but I have decided to move my letter to My league this year with 30 team control. This will allow me to make trades with cpu teams or swap it and just let me have trade veto power. I will also be able to do things like set cpu rotations and edit players ratings during the year. I can also jump in and make sure a player resigns with a certain team like Durant to warriors. I also didn’t see how I could do start today on my gm. I have also since I’m doing start today set pre existing injures to on so Fultz will out a few weeks.

Sliders / Quarters - My skill level isn't that great so I am somewhere between pro and all star don't worry I will not be winning every game I play. If I play the whole game then typically I drop down to 10 min quarters.

How I play - Since I'm not going to play 82 regular season games what I think I will do is play 2 games per month. I will super sim the games and if its close in the 2nd half I will jump into the game. I will play the majority of the playoff games.

Game Recap - I am going to use the table generator or game pics and then maybe a few sentences if its needed to describe the game. That way its easy to read and quick for me to post. I will not do this for every game I am thinking just the ones I play or jump in.

Articles - I will do several articles about 1 or 2 paragraphs long during the year as stuff happens. My writing skills aren't the best so overlook all my typos.

Roster - I am going to use the basic 2k roster and going with my league allows me to edit the major ratings changes during the year. I will try and keep it sim on any trades I make and I plan keeping Embiid, Simmons and Fultz as my core. I would like to sign 1 big free agent in the offseason and unload Bayless's contract.

2017 / 2018 Major Storylines


1. Is this the year we see results and the 76ers make the playoffs ?

The 76ers have been tanking and redshirting players for years and now the fans are tired of trusting the process and want to see results. Everyone knows that the Eastern Conference is very weak even more so then last year after this past offseason. The bottom 4 seeds in the east are up for grabs so fighting with teams like Pistons, Heat, Hornets, Hawks and Pacers aren't exactly death row.


2. Can Embiid stay healthy and justify the new contract after dominating in just 31 games last year?

Last year he finally made his NBA debut after sitting out 2 years with injuries and while he only played in 31 games. He averaged 20 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assist, 1 steal and 2.5 blocks and did all of this in only 25 minutes. The front office just 2 weeks ago went ahead and gave him a max contract instead of letting him play out the year as a restricted free agent. There is no doubt that Embiid can be a perennial all star and is still only 23 years old. He also may be the most likable guy in the entire NBA so he has a lot of people pulling for him. The big questions is can he stay healthy ?


3. Can Fultz score 20 a game as rookie ? Was it the right move to trade up to #1 and pass on Ball ?

Instead of picking at #3 overall the 76ers traded a future high draft pick to move up from #3 to #1 and take Fultz. On paper its a perfect fit as the team greatly needed some backcourt help, shooting and someone that can score. Even though he struggled in preseason nobody is doubting if Fultz can step in right away and score 15+ a game. Just keep a eye out on Jason Tatum for the Celtics and the future Kings pick to see if it was the right move to trade up.

* 2K defaults the pick to a 19 kings 1st where as it real life it could be this years lakers 1st if it lands on 2,3 4 or 5 that the celtics get. From the 76ers side everything should be fair either way just the lakers may get more help.


4. How will former #1 overall pick Ben Simmons play in his rookie year ?

If you follow the NBA at all then you have heard of Ben Simmons the former 1st overall pick who also missed his rookie year with a injury. He has drawn comparisons to Magic Johnson since he is 6'10 with PG skills. Incase you have never seen him play he is a do everything type of player who will flirt with a triple double on most nights. We are expecting him to average around 13 to 18 a night with 6+ assist and rebounds as a rookie. Just don't expect to see him score 26 a game and be shooting 3's as that is not his game.

Re: 2k18 - 76ers "the process needs results"

•I am still trying to figure out the format and didn't have all the info I needed. So overlook some things as I get the bugs worked out. I just wanted to get the few games I played last night posted as I should have some more stuff to post tomorrow as i'll be playing tonight. I think I may just switch over to taking a screenshot and sending to social media and doing that.

Bayless misses 2 3's at the buzzer

Jarred Bayless the backup PG was came into the game for his 3 point shooting and hit back to back 3's and the 76ers took a 1 point lead with only 1:16 to go. Back to back baskets resulted in the 76ers down 3 and Bayless would come up short on two 3's that would have sent the game to overtime.

Curry dominates in blow out win

The 76ers have hit a wall as this is the 5th straight loss and most of them not close. The return of Markelle Fultz is happening soon so that will be a big addition.

Ball vs Fultz Part 1


The careers of Fultz and Ball will forever be linked after the 76ers traded up and passed on Lonzo Ball. If your looking at just the stats It ended up a draw as the PG's posted similar stats . We will give round 1 to Fultz as the 76ers finally break a 6 game losing streak. It will not take long for round 2 to happen as the two teams face off again in 3 weeks.

Smaller 76ers Storylines


How much will bringing in JJ Redick help the team ?

Everyone knows to win in the NBA you need some veterans on your team to show the young guys how to win. That was one of the main reasons JJ Redick was brought to the team along with his shooting ability. JJ is off to a slow start with 11 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assist while only shooting 30% from 3's. He is to good of a shooter for the slump to last it just looks like it will be more of a adjustment then everyone hoped. Amir Johnson was another vet that was brought in and is currently not in the rotation now that that Richaun Holmes is back and Okafor is playing well. JJ and Amir both signed 1 year deals so the team try and go after a big name free agent this summer.


Will Jared Bayless be traded ?

He is owed 9 million for this year and next and going into the year it looked like it would be very hard to trade his contract. When Fultz got hurt that allowed him see more minutes and he has responded well scoring 9.2 points while shooting 42% from 3. He has spent some time playing SG and that along with his production has got his rating up from 73 to 76. He has proven to be a valuable 3 point specialist off the bench that can play either the PG or SG. If he is kept till the off season when he only has 1 year to go on his deal that will help his trade value as he could be moved to a team looking to shed salary.


How much will it take to keep Robert Covington ?

His strengths on the team are obvious he has a rating of A in both perimeter defense and 3 point shooting. He is 6'9 and 225 so he is capable of playing the 2-4. He is averaging double figures in scoring for the 4th straight year and is shooting 41% from the 3. He is expected to get around 12 million a year and we don't see anyway the team lets him walk since he is only 26.


Can former 3rd overall pick Jahli Okafor turn things around ?

Jahli to the surprise of many has stayed in the rotation all year even after Richaun Holmes got back healthy. He is averaging around 16 minutes a night and is currently at 11.4 points and 5.4 rebounds. The trade rumors with him are always on going, but from what we hear it looks like his spot in the rotation is safe for now. The new front office likes his ability to score when the 2nd unit gets on the floor.



NBA News & Notes

I have went through every team and adjusted the lineup the way I would do it as well as changed a few positions if the player was a tweener. Sometimes the CPU will play a 3rd PG over a backup C when there is only a small rating difference. I have also created a excel sheet for myself on all teams to help me manage the teams needs / assets as far as trades go.

PF Chris Bosh signs a 1 year deal with the Celtics (this was done by the CPU)

SG Marcus Smart (77 ovr) is out 2 to 4 months and with injuries turned on they are also without Heyward. The Celtics now don't have a SG on the NBA roster. Could a trade be on the way ? They are currently 8-8

PF Dirk Nowitzki's likely final season is not going as planned as the Mavs are 3-13 and a pinched nerve at his back will cause him to miss 2-4 weeks


The Utah Jazz are off to a surprising start with a 12-4 record as well as the Pistions who are 11-4.

Its good news and bad news for the Wizards who are 11-4 and top of the eastern conference. Otta Porter (82 ovr) who was off to a great start with 18.1 points per game broke his wrist and is out 4-6 weeks, Kelly Oubre (75 ovr) will have to step up and play 30+ min a night
