What was the greatest NBA dynasty of all time?  The 80's Showtime Lakers?  The 90's Jordan Bulls? Here's the league that will answer that question once and for all!  Rules are simple:

1.     Pick a franchise
2.     Pick a decade - 1951/52-1969/70 (50's and 60's are combined as a single decade); 1970/71-1979/80; 1980/81-1989/90; 1990/91-1999/00; 2000/01-2012/13 (yes you get 3 extra years for new millenium teams).  Note - years will be strictly enforced, e.g. you can't use the 79-80 or 90-91 season for a 1980-1990 team
3.     All your players must come from your franchise and decade
4.     Salary cap is $47,000; no rookies, waiver wire or clones
5.     Teams must be named as follows:  1960-70 New York Knicks, 2000-13 San Antonio Spurs etc.
6.     You can use franchises that changed names during a particular decade, i.e. Sonics/Thunder
7.     Franchise/Decade combos are exclusive.  So you can have multiple Celtics teams, but only one 1980-1990 Celtics team.

League number will be posted when we have 15 owners.

2.     Pick a decade - 1950/51-1959/60; 1960/61-1969/70; 1970/71-1979/80; 1980/81-1989/90; 1990/91-1999/00; 2000/01-2012/13 (yes you get 3 extra years for new millenium teams).  Note - years will be strictly enforced, e.g. you can't use the 79-80 or 90-91 season for a 1980-1990 team


79-80 is considered the 80s, fyi.  A season spends much longer in the yy portion than the xx portion (thus the 96 bulls are the 95-96 team, the 86 celtics is the 85-86 team, etc).  I can understand the division to help the 50s squad out, but the 50s suck anyway.  Even if you combined the 50s & 60s, those teams are going to be so weak they will be uncompetitive.

Also, giving exclusivity in a non-draft format really gives huge advantages to the early entries.

Just my 2¢

I think with the lower cap you can easily field 24 competitive teams in this format. If majority of owners want to change the decade definitions we can look at that for season 2. And I think there are a couple of 60s teams that would do very well.

Playing with possibilities, but wanted to ask:

How will teams be placed in Divisions?  geographically, seasonally, some combination, or something else (random)?
5/8/2013 7:43 PM
Hmmmm - I had not thought about that - I may go with random alignment assuming that there are no owners with multiple teams.
