10/2/2013 4:50 PM
We have 1 opening for the 10th season of a double season progressive that started with the 1951 and 1979 season and progresses one season at a time. For this 10th season owners will use the 1960/61 or 1988/89 seasons for their players.

Season 10 WIS Rookies include Oscar Robertson and Jerry West from 1960/61 and Lenny Wilkens, Rod Strickland, Hersey Hawkins and Rik Smits from 1988/89.


Here is an opportunity to join a great league. The league has 20 owners with 4 owners having 2 teams in the league.

I will give interested owners immediate access to the league's private forum, which has the list of players available for the season 8 draft and the draft order. The draft schedule will be posted in the next couple of days. The draft will likely be 5 rounds in length although most teams will be drafting only 1, 2 or 3 players.

The roster and sim league stats for  season 10 for the available team is posted below. If interested please sign up below. However, since this is a progressive league I do request that you not sign up unless you anticipate being able to participate for at least 3 seasons.

The available team is the Los Angeles Lakers. With 16 games left in season 9 the Lakers are 40-26 and are highly likely to make the playoffs. It appears probable that they will draft about 16th or 17th in the 24 team league.

The Laker Roster for season 9 was as follows:

Team: Los Angeles Lakers
Arena: Staples Center
Record: 40-26
Home: 24-8
Away: 16-18

With the double season format there is plenty of talent. You can be in a league with Elgin Baylor, Bob Pettit, Oscar Robertson, and Jerry West competing against Bird, Magic and Jordan-can the old timers compete with the 1988 stars ? The answer is definitely yes at least for some of them.
10/2/2013 5:18 PM
Malone, Chambers, Cheeks, Laimbeer and Jones all have good seasons left.

Daye and Gregory both retire after season 9 and Bradley should almost certainly be cut.

Berry, Reed, Sundvold and possibly Gray may be useful subs-you make the call !!

The teams has probably 2-4 seasons left as a playoff contender and will then need to be rebuilt.
