Once this league has filled, I will assign each owner three of the above players using random.org. They will be your "big three". All big three players are exclusive. You will build the rest of your team with teammates of your big three (no minimum or maximum number of teammates from each player required) Teammates can span the entire career of your players (they don't need to be from the player season you use). You can use any seasons from your big three, with the caveat that their salaries must combine to use up at least $25,000,000 of your total cap. You will build the rest of your team with the remaining $20,000,000 in cap space. This league could lead to some strange combinations. So what if you get three centers or three swingmen with high usage? Deal with it.

Cap - $45,000,000
Rookies, clones, trades, WW - NO

Hopefully we get this filled. It should be a lot of fun.

*7/24 UPDATE - I had forgot to mention that big three players are exclusive to each owner.

This is the type of stuff I like but $42m might be a little too restrictive.  I would be in at 45-47M

I'm open to changing the cap if enough people agree with you. The idea I had was to force owners to build their teams more true to life (if you had three superstars on your team you wouldn't cap space for much else, right?) But something like $45M would be fine too.

Yeah its just getting your minutes to 19675 without having some real crappy players to fill it.  If cap is 45M I'm in
7/19/2013 1:26 PM
I'd be in with the higher cap

Malone, if you really hate yourself, you should look at the other theme league I posted.

I am in a league that is exactly that already.  IT WILL NOT FILL!!

Draft took a LONG TIME and special rules had to be enacted for whoever got KD and LBJ.  I played in a league like that last season as well.  It is really something that only works once per season, and the rule about not exceeding the real salary cap is a non rule.  No one in the league has a total salary over 52 mil I would imagine.

The James Dolan method. There is something masochistic about this that somehow makes it appealing. Guess it goes with being a Knick fan.
 
I'M IN.

You know it Thomcat! Brutal to be a Knicks fan.

There is some REAL sim AIDS on that list.  All I can say is if I get hit with AI, Hill, and Arenas...I am going to be uberpissed.

Bump. Let's fill this one up.
