I would like to give this a shot. If I play one of the ten game seasons to try it will they give me the three extra players?

Any idea how to see +/- for a player? This game is pure math and stats and I have a hard time believing that stat isn't being kept somewhere.

Im really new to this stuff. I think it would really help if someone could analyze my team and tell me the pros & cons. I'd really appreciate any suggestions or ideas on how to make my team better.

Right now in my team i have:
- At PG
1. Kyrie Irving 35 mins
2. Maurice Cheecks 10

- At SG
1. Jason Terry 30 mins
2. Manu Ginobili 15 mins
3. Kyle irving 4 mins

- At SF
1. Derrick Rose 30 mins
2. Carmelo Anthony 15 mins
3. Steve Novak 5 mins

- At PF
1. Serge Ibaka 30 mins
2. Jason Smith 8 mins
3. Tyson Chandler 9 mins

- At C
1. Tyson Chandler 26 mins
2. JaVale McGee 8 mins
3. Fabrico Oberto 8 mins

At first glance, Irving and Terry as the starting guards is alright (although u might think about getting more assists).  Chandler at C or PF is ok.  Move Ibaka to SF (11-12 Ibaka is 100% at SF) and get a PF or C (remove Rose from the team).

here's a tip - delete the icon cells and the stat sheet will reformat to normal size

much better

ok you dont want a guy with 30+% usage and an efg of under 50%
3 guard system wont work - to give you an idea lot's of people's favorite PG is named Lebron - rebounding you'll get killed

I tried to go by the guidlines in the OP but I feel like my team is going to get killed after simulating several games. Any thoughts? League hasn't started yet so still time to adjust

you've got problems with efficiency, assists and rebounding

With field goal efficiency? I only have one player under 48 what did I do wrong?
1/8/2013 2:45 PM

your highest usage player has an efg of 50.6 which is ok but not great (and your next two highest usage guys are sub 50% efg) - it is possible(and desirable) to funnel usage to guys with much higher efg - there are 31.0+ usage Shaq seasons where he's shooting 57-58% for instance

i have a question. when setting your defence does it really matter wether i set my team to balance of 0 and leave it alone. And double teams do they help or hurt? thanks!!!

I wouldn't recommend double teaming as a general rule.  I'd only suggest a defensive balance other than 0 if ur opponent scores a big majority of their points from the paint or perimeter.
