I think having Shaq would suck the most. Can't choose Kobe, Wade, Payton, Malone, Lebron and for most of his career it was really Shaq and a 2 guard and no real star with the rest of them
Yeah...because Shaq never played with Ray Allen, or Nick Anderson, or Dennis Scott, or Lamar Odom, or Steve Nash, or Amare Stoudemire.

I can see the problems...lol
yea I wasnt even thinking about his geezer years, good point

malone, I don't think  you've got it right.  You can't twist Pat Riley to a season in which he didn't play with Wilt.

right you can use any teammates of any season they actually played with Wilt but you can't use a player who played with WIlt for 1 year and use his best year 5 years later

8/27/2013 6:21 PM

So in a nutshell, I can choose any season of any player who
 
A.  At some point played with one of my three players;
 
and, 

B.  Is not one of the 69 others who form trios.

Correct?
Bingo.
Oooooh.  Man.  I have made this way to complicated on myself.  I was under the assumption that if I used say, 67-68 Wilt, I could only use players from the 67-68 76ers.  That is not the case?
right what he is saying is if you pick 67-68 wilt because he was with the 76ers you can only use people that played with him from 64-65 to 67-68 his years with the 76ers..

so your best bet if possible is to use the Lakers or the SF/Phily Warriors season

I dont think that is it.

He could use Wilt from any year, and use any teammate of Wilt from anytime in his career.  So he could use 60-61 Wilt and use Pat Riley who he played with the year he retired in 72-73 and choose the 75-76 season when he was in Phoenix.
This is the way I am understanding it and doing it now.  I built a spreadsheet with each player season in which that season of that player was on a team with one of my three guys and using that as my pool.  This is correct, right?
This is correct. I guess I didn't make things initially clear enough. Sorry if I caused any confusion to owners.

Using what Malone9975 did as an example,

If my big three were Kobe, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Mchale I can select players from the following seasons:

96-97 to 12-13 Lakers
98-99 to 12-13 Celtics 
80-81 to 92-93 Celtics

I hope that clears things up.

8/27/2013 6:27 PM
So, to be absolutely clear, using your, example, if I have McHale would I be allowed to use one of Parish's Golden State seasons?

I get what your saying but what Malone is saying because Wilt played with Pat Riley in 72-73 that gives him the ok to use the 1975 Riley who was on the Suns

No. That is called twisting. There is no twisting allowed in this league. The teammates' seasons you use must be from a year in which they played with one of your big three.
