you've outdone yourself
12/21/2013 2:43 PM
so there is time to waste on this pointless post but we cant get bill russell a decent defensive rating?

this had to take more time then just simply changing russells rating to 100 for every year like it should be

1.  Who is Seble?

2.  Russell's defensive rating is by far the greatest outlier on this site. Can he fix it?

Seble is the guy in charge of the basketball sim. He doesn't do a whole lot for us, and what he does do are either minor problems that aren't really important or things that didn't need to be done. He sort of doesn't like most of the guys that have been around for a while, because they call him out on that. The Russell travesty has been one of the most requested changes for a long time but seble just sort of ignores us. He doesn't like us, we don't like him.

I'm just saying how it is.

That's too bad. Thanks for clarifying.

"He doesn't do a whole lot for us" = Understatement of the millennium.

It's so sad that it's kind of funny. Not like "haha" funny - more like "oops, I ran over a baby koala" funny.

12/22/2013 6:24 PM
We requested and got this info in the hockey sim about.. 8 years ago.. made for a fun theme league to ban all those guys
12/22/2013 8:27 PM
I like how the league designated scrubs from the PPL are on this list.  Shows you a little something.
12/22/2013 8:31 PM
Haha nice catch
12/22/2013 8:49 PM
17 players on the list min. salary how utterly unfascinating.
