Guess which team has the best record in the league and which has the worst?  One has 38, the other has 8.

This was an OT game, but still.  37 tos and 27 fouls?

That's a good example of usage not working like it should.  You are def a little light on usage, even though all the usage points add up.  If you had a higher usage Dwight or more bench usage, I think you'd be okay.  
3/13/2014 9:41 PM
I see at least 14 usage points on either squad, unless Scott's a straight liar (well we know he is) but unless he is lying about this in particular that is not the issue (or shouldn't be)
3/13/2014 11:15 PM
I don't think usage is the issue.  I start 16.5 points.  I just looked at my FGAs for LBJ and for Wilt.  Howard is on pace for 42.7% more FGA than in real life.  LBJ = 31.4%, Marion = 23.3, Rodman = 19.4% and Wilt = 14%.  I'm sure those numbers probably factor in somehow.  Here's my current depth chart:

PG:  Paul 28, LBJ 20
SG:  LBJ 13, Marion 35
SF:  Rodman 43, Marion 3, Birdman 2
PF:  Howard 35, Drummond 13
C:  Wilt 47, Drummond 1

The least amount of usage points possible on the floor at any given time is 9.5 (Paul, Marion, Rodman, Drummond, Wilt).  I checked the box score of the 37to game and this lineup was on the floor for 32 seconds in the 2nd quarter and 19 seconds in the 3rd quarter for a grand total of 51 seconds of the game.  Shouldn't be a huge factor, but who knows. 

I also discovered additional ridiculous information.  In the first quarter, My lineup looked like this (in order 1-5):  LBJ, Paul, Marion, Howard, Chamberlain. Paul was subbed in at SG for some reason.  Why the f*ck would that happen?  Why wouldn't Paul go to PG and LBJ to SG? The sim is that dumb?  I don't want Paul playing SG, hence the reason I don't have him in my depth chart there.

Then, later in the first quarter, my lineup looked like this:  Paul, Marion, James, Drummond, Chamberlain.  Why is LBJ subbed in at SF?  He's not on my depth chart there, but Marion is.  Why not put Marion at SF and LBJ at SG, like I have my depth chart set to?  I have my lineup set how I want it.  If 5 guys are going to be on the floor on offense, I want them at the positions I've put them at in my depth chart.

At one point in the 2nd quarter, my lineup was:  Paul, Marion, Rodman, LBJ, Wilt.  WTF?

Are you looking at the offense or defense side of lineups ?    I have some players cover multiple positions which is reflected on the defense side of the play by play.

3/14/2014 12:16 AM
Offense.

Foul substitution strategy ?

cant imagine watching a game with 60+ turnovers would be too much fun
4/30/2014 9:55 PM
I noticed in tonight's playoff game that the Mavs had 8 turnovers and the Spurs had 5. Does anyone know why WIS cranks up the turnovers?
