Random Big Three, Season Two FULL Topic

This is season 2 of the Random Big Three league. This year we are tweaking the rules slightly. Instead of using the 72 highest-salaried unique players, I request that once everyone signs up, they nominate three players that have at least one season above $8,000,000. Once the league has filled, I will assign each owner three of the nominated players using random.org. They will be your "big three". All big three players are exclusive. You will build the rest of your team with teammates of your big three (no minimum or maximum number of teammates from each player required) Teammates can span the entire career of your players. Teammates have to be from a season they played with one of your big three, but they don't need to be from the player season you use. You can use any seasons from your big three, with the caveat that their salaries must combine to use up at least $25,000,000 of your total cap. You will build the rest of your team with the remaining $20,000,000 in cap space. This league could lead to some strange combinations. So what if you get three centers or three swingmen with high usage? Deal with it.

Right now the playoffs are currently underway. The top seeds for season one were a Rudy Tomjanovich/Tracy McGrady/Anfernee Hardaway squad and a Dwyane Wade/Gerald Wallace/Jerry West squad.

The particulars:
Cap - $45M
Trades, WW, clones, rookies - NO
League alignment - Random

I hope to see a good mix of familiar faces and new entrants for an exciting, unique league.

**11/26 - Update: If you cannot make a combined $25M+ salary with your assigned big three, you must at least use seasons of your assigned players that are at least $8M each. I did not think it would happen, but this has happened to one owner. Please let me know if you will be unable to make the $25M salary floor.**

I'm in. Coincidentally, I'm the number one seed (but my series is 2-2... :/ ).

I'll be back with my three suggestions in a bit.

 Dan Issel - Issel filed for bankruptcy in 2009, claiming a $4.5 million debt to at least 34 creditors.

George Mikan - Shaquille O'Neal offered to pay for Mikan's funeral.

Truck Robinson -  In 1982–83 Robinson suffered through the worst slump of his career, averaging just 9.5 points and 8.1 rebounds. Fans began complaining about their “truck with four flat tires.”
