I think the cap itself is a big-time restriction... Limiting the "total salary" of one player is going to do very little. Partial season players are better at caps such as this anyway.
quick example: Florida... I use Lebron for my $9-mill guy. I can still get partial season shaq & dwight at the 4/5 and actually save $/min doing so.
I like what you're trying to do... I just think that the player pool is going to be entirely too large for some states with no good way of restricting it with the current ruleset.
How about this.
If you pick a state with multiple pro teams you must only use players from one franchise.
Example: you pick Florida, you then must choose if you are going to use he Heat OR Magic?
I think that would be reasonable.
Not sure what to do with Cali. 300+ players birth place, 393 high school players, plus 4 NBA franchises that include players like Wilt, Shaq, Howard, Rodman, Magic, Paul, Walton... I could do this all day.
I don't want to eliminate Cali entirely, but they are overwhelming with talent. Not sure what to do here.
As far as the states with no pro franchise? What about using pro teams from states with shared borders.
In the case of Bama you could use Atlanta, Miami, or Orlando.?
