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?
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.

My 2nd team with Grant Hill, Aldridge and Sikma. I am forced to use the highest salaried seasons just to get over the $25mill. Should be fun.
8/27/2013 6:43 PM
From "A YEAR" But not "The Year" your player played.

I know how you feel, I used Cowens and Hawkins 8m seasons to get me to like almost 17m, however Elgin doesn't have an8mill season so I had to use a 9m one which I didnt want to make the 25

anyone else finding this impossible? i just cant make this work with a 20 mill bench. Also, what about scrubs. can we just use anyone under $300k?
Once I understood the rules I was able to make it work a lot easier.

I am not going to ***** and moan because I did end up with Wilt....  but **** is Johnston horrible.  I am using the highest salary Wilt and Lucas seasons to avoid spending anything on Johnston since he is so ****** and I have 3 centers.  Additionally, there is very little to go around in terms of assists, shooting, low TO/fouls since I have all old guys.  Again, I know we all have our own unique issues and that is what makes this fun and I got a great player...  my team just won't be as good or well rounded as I would like.

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.
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, I don't think so.  The only seasons available are the ones in which they co-existed with one or more of big three as a teammate.
8/27/2013 7:29 PM
ughh...i was only able to get to 19300 mins and had to stockpile super low usg guys just to get that...only 1 other guy on my team is over 3 mil...very tough with the 45m cap

Is a league number available?
8/27/2013 7:41 PM
Glad to hear others are struggling with this because it seems like my team is going to blow.

Simpler yet (I think):

Any season in which they played together on the same team is OK. So, any season in which a prospective draft pick played with Kobe would be an acceptable season. If that prospective draft pick did not play with Kobe in a given season, that season is off limits.
