Are you going to add all the modern ballparks, like the new Yankee Stadium or Citi Field?

Wow - look at all those new basketball enhancements!!! Oh wait......

This is awesome. Thanks for the improvements!

- Should we expect a "Promise Start Sophomore" coming soon to HD as well then?
- Where can/should we submit suggestions for further updates?

meanwhile according to Whatif there are 4 different James Harden seasons where he was a better defender than Bill Russell (in all but one of his seasons) and fixing Russell's D ratings (which are largely based on made up #s generated by WIS anyway) would only take about 3 minutes (something we've only been asking for most of this century - literally)

imagine the goodwill that could be created by that bare minimum of effort
