    More of a placeholder than anything - but if you are 100% sure you will be using the same team as you are currently using, please post it here.

    We will go through a more formal process once the rosters are out.

    For reference - the existing teams are:

    Dru50 - Los Angeles Clippers
    Bondzai007 - Orlando Magic
    makinpropel - New York Knicks
    ryalaman - Washington Wizards
    BDSDIGITAL - Cleveland Cavaliers
    Mike E - Oklahoma City Thunder
    Danthraxxx - Memphis Grizzlies
    bringbackjimmy - Minnesota Timberwolves
    JFace907 - Sacramento Kings
    bucsfan047 - Golden St Warriors
    gowazzucougs - Portland Trailblazers

    RynoAid - Dallas Mavericks (I assume)
    Blaza - Miami Heat (I assume)

    will likely be with the Knicks, but if they get too good during FA, I will probably get a more middle skilled team.

    lol, Melo? Stat? Knicks are already incredible in 2K12 bro! :p

    I'm cool with MIA if but I'm also open to taking over another squad. I really enjoy playing with the Nets and OKC (should Mike leave). Hawks have been one of my favorite teams to play with for the last few 2K games and a tiny, insane part of me feels a little interested in rebuilding the hometown Bobcats.

    I will be interested to see rosters and whatnot so hard to say at his point Dru50 , my Christmas list at this point is : Cavs , Grizz , Warriors .... If I end up with Grizz that's fine , I I can make similar trade with bulls , if nobody takes the bulls

    But I am flexible anyway it plays out .... Unless I get Toronto :(

    No joke - with NY you already have the 2 best players on the court in 80-90% of the games you play. How much better could they be? (PS - I don't think they will get Chris Paul until during the season).

    He may get amnesty claused. Of course, the Wizards are far too dumb to amnesty Rashard Lewis.

    Yeah, they should be a fun little team. They have a lot of FA work to do, especially in terms of front court depth, so it will interesting to see how that turns out.

    I heard that he isn't getting amnestied because the GM is afraid to go to the owner and say, "Remember the guy I convinced you to trade for who makes $20m per year? Well, now you need to pay him not to play and then pay for a replacement player."

    Toronto is actually known to be a pretty explosive squad as funny as that sounds.

    They can't play a lick of defensive, but they have shooters every where and can really stretch the floor. A kid in an OS league went absolutely bonkers with them in 2K11.

    I think I am gonna stick with the Thunder. I have yet to even play a game this release with any other team and I am beginning fall for the role players on this team (Cook, Ibaka, Harden, Perk, and Collison).

    A sick part of me wants the Cavs, but I know others probably want them more.

    Be who you want, it doesn't matter to me either way. But that team is a top 3-4 team in the east and easily a top 10 team overall. You were just making it sound like they were a middle of the road team, which sounded funny to me.

    The reason they aren't doing it is because they are already under the cap. Might as well keep him off the team and either trade him at the deadline or just let him come off the books. It's not like he's a shitty player, he just has a bad contract....but it's an expiring one.

    I was looking to vacate Cleveland and take over Boston. Let the flaming of me and the battle royale for the chance to use kyrie Irving begin.

    Are you 100% certain you want to switch? If you do, Boston would be yours based on the team selection rules Bond and I came up with.

    I am willing to give you Portland, but I may want to pluck a player or two from the roster and take them as souvenirs.

    OK - thanks for the heads up.

    I've updated the first post to reflect this.
