    For 2K13, the Baseline will be a lot more structured. It will be less of a democracy an have a defined leadership team. Last year the league was run very loosely and was still solid, so I expect this time around to be even better.

    There are a few quick items I'd like to point out for those thinking about applying for the league.

    · This is a Premier League. If you apply before becoming premier, you will not be considered.

    · As of right now, we will run with 16 users (8 east/8west). If the game advances the same way it did in '12 then that is the max we will have. If the advance schedule is more managable then I will look at increasing that number.

    · The leadership team will consist of myself and 2 conference commissioners. I will choose the commissioners when I choose the league roster.

    · The assigning of teams will be solely my decision, but I will do my best to get everyone a team that they want to run with.

    · Content will be required. The NBA is full of storylines and it should not be hard to come up with some good ideas for content. Game Summaries are absolutely REQUIRED.

    · Lastly, but MOST importantly. If you cannot take a loss like a man then don’t bother applying. Bitching and moaning and overall douchebaggery will NOT be tolerated. While I will be fair, I will not hesitate to boot you.

    Application Process:

    Please answer the following questions in this thread. If you cannot for a coherent application you will not be considered.

    1. Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?
    2. List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    3. What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    4. What is your favorite real life team and why?
    5. Why should I pick you for The Baseline?


    I cannot stress this enough. Please read this entire post before applying. Don't leave shit out.

    I feel like I was pretty solid and very active last edition, despite the poor ending. Content isnt a problem for me either as i love to write and draw out the storylines.

    1.Availability – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in? Usually nights, 7 days a week unless otherwise notified. Central Time Zone

    2.List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    1) Cavs - grew up a fan

    2) Hornets - Looks like this team will be a lot of fun this year

    3) Mavericks - I live in Dallas and actually enjoy watching the Mavs

    3.What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    - Pushing for Paydirt (ncaa)
    - The Longest Yard (Madden)

    4.What is your favorite real life team and why?
    Cleveland Cavaliers...because i love pain, anguish, and suffering. Grew up watching Mark Price, Larry Nance, and Craig Ehlo get their hearts ripped out year in and year out by Michael Jordan...and I liked it...

    5.Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    I am a sim player in all my games, and enjoy the camaraderie of TSO more than anything. Winning and losing are not as important as getting along with the group of guys in the league and having a fun experience. Baseline '12 was by far my favorite league that i have been in on this site. I will contribute with content as much as possible and will help in any other aspect.

    Thanks, and I hope to be considered for the 2k13 cycle!

    1.Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?
    I'm usually on every day after like 5 or 6.
    2.List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    Denver Nuggets, Brooklyn Nets, then no preference after
    3.What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    PFP(NCAA) 1st and Ten, NML(NCAA) TLY(Madden)
    4.What is your favorite real life team and why?
    My Favorite team in real life is the Nuggets. Chauncey Billups is my favorite player so when he got traded to the Nuggets, they were my favorite team. Once he got traded to the Knicks, I didn't like the Knicks and didn't plan on liking them, so I just stuck with the Nuggets.
    5.Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    I'm very Active on the forums and and always on top of my games when it comes to leagues. I've actually been in a sim league before for 2k and I loved it. I hated playing ranked and people would just be basket hanging or holding RT running all over the place or just scoring with one person. I love running plays to set up the shot.

    Im available anytime after 630pm CST M-F and mostly anytime on the weekends.

    2. List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.

    3. What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    TMFL, Zeroes to Heroes

    4. What is your favorite real life team and why?
    Lakers, because growing up I was a huge Shaq fan from his days at LSU and when he signed to LA I also made the transition to Hollywood. But that only lasted until I saw Kobe win the dunk contest and he has been my favorite player ever since and I love the way he plays the game with no apologies and his **** you attitude.

    5. Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    Because I am a easy going guy and play for the love of the game. I always respect my opponents and treat people the way I want to be treated. I also pride myself to being on time and hold myself to higher standard than anyone else can.

    1. Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?
    I'm in the Alaskan time zone (-4 EST). Usually online Su-We after 930pm eastern and all day Th-Sa

    2. List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    Cavs, Hornets, Kings

    3. What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    PFP (NCAA), TMFL (Madden), TFL (FIFA)

    4. What is your favorite real life team and why?
    The Cleveland Cavaliers. I'm a fan of all things Cleveland and really fell in love with these guys when they brought Kemp over. Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill are still two of my favorite Cavs (wasn't quite old enough to full understand the Mark Price era). Then of course everything came into full bloom once they drafted LeBron James and made their runs that would fall short. I have stuck with my Cavs and will continue to do so no matter how dim the light at the end of the tunnel is (if its even there).

    5. Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    I love basketball. I love 2K. I'm also very much a content driven guy who loves to make up storylines and give the people something entertaining. I also feel i was a very solid member last year as it really became my primary online league on this site and i could easily see it doing that again in 13.

    Blazers. I was originally a bulls fan during the jordan years, but after the 2nd retirement i decided to go with the hometown team. Alot of fun years with the jail blazers, but they became to much trouble and we had a few bad years cleaning up. Then we big dreams with roy. LA and oden, but the dream turned to nightmare fast.

    5. Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    because where is the fun when there is no bbj rants? We had fun last season even with all the hiccups. Hopefully they get rid of all the bugs and we cant get through more than 2 seasons at a time..

    1. Normally after 8pm est Sunday to Thursday. Friday and Saturday anytime after 8 til the wee hours.

    2. Sixers, Nets, Spurs

    3. Commissioner of the redshirts, co commissioner of the dugout, TMFL

    4. Sixers. Im a PA sports team homer and root for all my home state teams. I've always followed them and would like nothing more than to bring the trophy back home.

    5. Im dedicated, get a long with most of the guys from last year, also was in '12. Im very easy going and really only bitch about legitimate douchebaggery. As the old man in the bunch, i bring the maturity required to bring sonn and ryalaman in check. I also play straight up running an actual offense, and take all my losses like a man.

    1. Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?
    EST and I'm usually pretty flexible with getting my games in.

    2.List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    Wizards, Hornets, Nuggets

    3.What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    Redshirts, FIFA, co-commish of Dugout

    4.What is your favorite real life team and why?
    Wiz. Mostly because I hate myself. And because I'm a fan of all local sports in general.

    5.Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    I thought I was a good member last year who was active on the forums and on skype. Despite the fact that Ernie gave me a roster that can't play my style and with no cap space (seriously, think about us 2k players next time), you can count on me to be there for the full cycle.

    EST. Available nightly after about 7pm EST

    2.List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    Knicks, Clips, Nets, Minn

    3.What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    None

    4.What is your favorite real life team and why?
    Knicks. Partly bc of my obsession with the city itself and partly bc of my unhealthy John Starks obsession (pause).

    5.Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    I'm an uber hoophead and a forum reg. Love the NBA and have a nice solid knowledge base re: The Association. Played every game under the sun over the years but the 2K OA ran away with my gaming interests. Creator of infamous (and accurate) BBKKK moniker.

    I'm still up in the air... I'll likely end up getting talked into it though. Did we ever figure out if they added auto-pilot for this year's version? That would make my decision an easy yes.

    1. Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?

    Usually available most nights after 6. EST

    2. List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.

    Charlotte Bobcats, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers

    3. What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?

    The Redshirts (NCAA) and I have inquired to join TMFL.

    4. What is your favorite real life team and why?

    The Charlotte Bobcats are my favorite team mostly because I live in Concord,NC which is about 20 minutes from Charlotte. I was also a big Hornets fan but after they left I really didn't have a team to pull for so it was really awesome when we got the Bobcats and I can say that my owner has 6 Rings and can dunk on your owner lol.

    5. Why should I pick you for The Baseline?

    I was in '12 and I contributed rather well on the content side with Game Recaps/Rookie of the year Candidates and also in the skype chat.

    1.Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?

    Anytime after about 7 my time on weekdays, weekends are pretty free, unless the Huskers are on. Central Time Zone

    2.List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.

    Minnesota, Hornets, Rockets

    3.What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?

    Alumni Nation, a non premier NCAA dynasty

    4.What is your favorite real life team and why?

    The Lakers, basically because I'm a huge Kobe fan. A lot of my friends are also Laker fans, so it is easy to just join them, and talk basketball with them. I live in Nebraska, so there isn't a "home team".

    5.Why should I pick you for The Baseline?

    I love NBA, and 2k is by far my favorite sports game. This league is the reason I am not in a premier dynasty for NCAA, because I knew I wouldn't be able to keep up the pace of playing that chore of a game once this beauty came out. I was in '12 through every restart but the last one, and had a lot of fun with you guys. If we can get this thing going through many seasons, it can and will be one of the best leagues on the site.

    Application Process:


    Please answer the following questions in this thread. If you cannot for a coherent application you will not be considered.


    1. Availablilty – What time of day/week are you usually online playing? What time zone are you in?
    Sometimes available upon request other times have to keep the other priorities in line first and then gaming will come. Open after 5:30 Central, 8 CT or later is probably better.

    2.List your top 3 teams that you would like to be.
    LA Clippers, Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies​

    3.What other leagues are you or will you be involved in?
    NCAA: Second to None
    Madden: Hard Knocks

    4.What is your favorite real life team and why?
    Been through different times:
    I was a huge AI and Sixers fan while growing up
    Then it turned into Golden State with Baron Davis, watched the take down of the Mavs in the playoffs then through Monta Ellis (now with the Bucks).
    LA Clippers: They have always had a spot, loveable losers and the next team that Baron Davis went to, along with Al Thornton (FSU) being drafted in 07-08 then DeAndre Jordan in 08-09.
    Then of course I am a LeBron fan

    5.Why should I pick you for The Baseline?
    I am a good league member and will bring content to the league along with wanting to give an NBA game a try.

    Come to Kentucky and pick a team lol.. I wouldn't say I jump out there and pick the front runner teams though and I basically picked some teams to follow mostly underdogs at the time/currently. I enjoy the NBA but I don't really have a diehard team to go root for.
