Make a team while only using a players 10th year into his career or later. Example: you use Jordan, Jordan 1st WiS season was 84-85, only seasons eligible for him would be 93-94 or later. Keep in mind some players will have missed years due to injuries. This is a tough time of the year to fill leagues so maybe this will draw some interest.

$52 mill
No ww
No rookies
No clones.

Special note: the 10 year rule doesnt apply to players with salaries below $500K. This should give you flexibility to help fill rosters.

Will have a league number soon. Still working my team
7/25/2013 6:37 AM
Is it 10 or over 10?  For example Lebron has been in the league 10 years.  Can his last season be used?

10 and beyond. So yes his 12-13 is available to use.

Not to nitpick, but a lot of seasons that people already use are 10th and beyond. 12-13 Lebron will be on nearly every team. Plus, with the beasts that came out of high school in the past 20 years, a lot of guys are 28 and still in their prime in the 10th year. From the title of the league, I was expecting something like a 32 and over league. Or at least something that wouldn't have a clear cut best player available like 2012-2013 Lebron.

Im aware of that. Their are actually quite a few guys who have great seasons after their 10th year. Im simply trying to create a league that will limit the player pool. I got rid of some of the cookie teams. Look at how many great seasons get eliminated. Rodmans great years, Wilts great years, most of J. Kidds, kareem, most of Birds, Magic etc. not to mention the players not even eligible: Durant, CP3, D. Howard, Deron Williams, Novak etc..

Not sure of what high school "Beasts" you are referring too that have come out that would be eligible for this format. Kobe, KG, and maybe Chandler?

The 10th season he played or just 10 years since he was in the league? For instance, Bill Walton came in the league in 74-75 and his last season is 85-86 but he was hurt so much he only played 9 seasons total. Can I use Walton's 85-86 season?

Moses Malone went str8 to the ABA from high school (not in the last 20 years of course).  $52M might be too high for this theme.

My response was based on the past 20. But thanks for the input.

Yes. 10 years from his rookie year. Not his 10th WiS season

Nc. If this fills I may do it again with a lower cap and 12 from rookie season.
