Just noticed there's a GM named "coltcrazy" with the #1 team on the Top 25 as of today [6/4/13 whatifsports.com/nba-l/top25.asp].  It looks like he created a private league made up entirely of his own teams -- NBA44348 -- where he's listed at the GM for every single squad.  I didn't think WIS allowed multiple entries in the same league.  Playing against himself over 2000 times has produced some box score gems like the one below, featuring 109 turnovers, 18% shooting, and single game rebounding and steals records for Jermaine O'Neal and Warren Davis.  Obviously virtually every WIS record is at one's mercy if allowed to own an entire league.  Anyway, anyone know the story behind our coltcrazy friend &/or why he's playing all alone (&/or why WIS allowed this)?

I know this has been allowed by wis in the mlb sim for a long time.

You can have as many teams in theme leagues as you want as long as you pay for them.

Wow.   Looks like a box score from about 1903.  I don't see any harm in what he's doing or in WIS allowing it.  What he gets out of spending a boatload of money to manipulate imaginary statistics I have no idea.  Maybe it would tickle his fancy to set a bunch of WISNBA records, if he's got a couple of monster teams playing against dogs.

And sure enough, he's set at least three single game records already.

LOL .... What he gets out of spending a boatload of money to manipulate imaginary statistics I have no idea.

I must admit that even with the "unique" situation, I don't understand the clumping of rebounds and steals, nor do I understand how one team had only 5 players see time when 3 of them had 6 fouls.  Could this be some type of glitch-testing league?
6/4/2013 4:44 PM
I didn't think theme leagues could produce records. Maybe it's an open league? Regardless, what a douche.

seems like a waste of $250.00 bucks if ya ask me. It would be bad business for WiS to punish this guy. WiS is smoking Cubans on his dime while whispering "sucker"

They've been smoking stogies and saying that about all of us who play the NBA sim regularly, whilst giving a shitfuckelse about doing anything to make it better because we all still play.  But I digress.

Interestingly, I just checked and at least a couple of the records no longer appear.

Thanks Abrondon, I never knew how to find top 25 before your post

I noticed this league a bit ago as well. I was thinking it could be a test league for the 12-13 players since most of the league is comprised of them. Interestingly the only experience I've seen from him is his 24-team league and an exhibition season...as well as 97 dream team games (all under the same team name). It's also interesting that he has no finals appearances nor championship...despite being the only owner in the league. Also...a -54819 owner rating.

perhaps he is admin and incompetent?
