Thanks for this... brand new player, and while I still have plenty to learn and won't really understand everything in this until I have a chance to use it and then ask others what I'm doing wrong, it's great to have a place to start.

Thanks to Gil for these!



i agree with iguana. if there are small discrepancies between what he said and the excerpt i am about to post (from a much larger site mail i once wrote), go with what he said.

excerpt:
I hope everybody scouts before they recruit a player! There are rare exceptions, but 99% of the time, you can't afford to sign a player without knowing his potential. The range on potential is low 0-6, med 6-20, high 20+. Also, low and high are divided into 2 categories, which you can only determine via evals. Low is divided into approx. 0-3 and 3-6, High is divided into approx 20-30 and 30+. One thing that can get tricky is determining the meaning of an eval message regarding potential. For your convenience, here is a list of the high high and low high message for each attribute:
Ath
Definitely wasn't the best athlete on the floor - unless I'm an idiot and/or this is the laziest kid ever, we can *dramatically* improve his athleticism.
Good athleticism - I'm going to go out on a limb and say that he could improve substantially if he really works at it.
Spd
if he works hard at it, we could see *massive* improvement here
with the right diet and conditioning he could be MUCH quicker than he is today
Reb
Fantastic rebounding instincts - there's no reason to NOT expect HUGE improvement here.
based on my experience, he can still improve substantially if we work with him and he's willing.
Def
I really think we could see massive improvement by his Senior year.
if he's willing to listen, we could really see some major improvement.
Sb
he's shown glimpses of raw ability which make me think he just has *tremendous* room for improvement
has a LOT of room for growth with the right drills and coaching. / definitely has above average room for growth with the right drills and coaching
Lp
skys the limit
has a LOT of room for growth with the right drills and coaching.
Per
I see such solid fundamentals that with enough practice I don't see why he can't be a *significantly* better shooter than he is today
I know this may sound crazy, but I think he has the potential to really improve his shot.
Bh
he has the raw skills to make me think he has *tremendous* upside.
with the right drills and assuming he's willing to put in the time, I see big upside
Pass
with more experience I expect to see TREMENDOUS improvement.
I'd like to see him play more, but still, I really think we could see fairly significant improvement.
Sta
with the right diet and drills, I think we can see a *dramatic* change in his conditioning
even with that, I think we can really improve upon his conditioning
FT%
the fundamentals look solid, with time and coaching, he could really show some improvement. - i only have this message saved for some reason, i assume this is the low/high, but i am not 100%.
