Heat have a lot of weapons to contend with, even with Rice off his game in that one.

One struggles, one excels: Anthony Mason (R.I.P.) was amazing. We don't have their depth. I hope we don't get swept.

Third quarter was a killer. Same thing happened to the Clippers in real life today.

Not the result we were hoping for, but great coverage throughout the season, and hopefully it was fun to play.

And now that the 2002 season is here, I guess MJ makes a comeback!

I didn't get to play as much as I would have wanted, I simmed most of it, but it has been fun so far. Now the FUN, in big letters, begins.

I will try to add MJ and not get the saves screwed up!

Some pretty decent results, though I'd say Martin's numbers are a little low for Rookie of the Year. Probably some worthier candidates on the All-Rookie Second Team, including Michael Redd who actually got a good run in his rookie year in this reality. Tim Floyd winning Coach of the Year is certainly...different. Not unthinkable given the season the Bulls had here, though.

Yeah, I think there were some other candidates who could have won ROY. Despite missing 20 games, Martin led all rookies in rebounds and blocks per game and also field goal percentage, I think that was decisive. With Floyd winning it, I'm actually OK, the Baby Bulls had multiple 7-game winning streaks and almost made the postseason.

Interesting mix of reality and fiction in the Draft there.

Yeah, definitely interesting. Kwame fell a lot, obviously.

Re: our trade, I think it's a big risk for both teams. While Ilgauskas is injury prone, Harrington has shot just 38 percent from the field last season for me. Cavs already had Andre Miller and Anthony Johnson at the point so they could part ways with Tinsley, but they needed another center so there goes Tabak (also injured last season). So we'll see.


Note: some players (Bell, Arroyo, Trybanski) went undrafted in real life but were in this draft class, same goes for players who went undrafted in previous years but joined the league in 2001 as free agents (Malik Allen, Mike James). The rest of the second round selections were generated players.

Kwame dropping that low is definitely a surprise given that he was an intriguing prospect at a time when drafting high schoolers was very much in vogue.
