I thought the problem I had today with NBA Live 08 was pretty random.
By the way, I was simulating all of this.
I started a dynasty mode with the Charlotte Bobcats. I signed Smuch Parker to a 23.2 million, 4 year contract.
Soon I was 4-14. Smush Parker was averaging around 5 PPG. I decided to trade him, my first round pick, and my leading scorer Jason Richardson for Dwayne Wade and the Heat's first round draft pick.
I did really good after that. I was seven games over .500 when the trade-deadline came. At the deadline, I traded Raymond Felton for Daniel Gibson.
I ended the season at 45-37 and finished 5th in the Eastern Conference. I beat the Washington Wizards in the first round then lost to the Boston Celtics in the second round.
So heading into the off-season, my team was pretty good. My first round pick from Miami ended up being #1 overall. I picked a SF named Durrell Smith.
In FA, I signed Antwan Jamison to a 24.6 million, two year deal. I moved Emeka Okafor up to Center so I had a lineup like this:
6th man-Gerald Wallace
7th man-Adam Morrison
I thought that I would have at least 55+ wins.
When Year 2 was over, I was 33-49
Gerald Wallace, Emeka Okafor, and Adam Morrison all scored under 10 PPG.
Durrell Smith, at least, won ROY with 20.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 3.2 APG.
I decided to do nothing in the off-season hoping that my team would do better.
Year 3 Record: 30-52
My advice: Don't pick the Bobcats for dynasty mode.
