Two teams per person?
« on: May 02, 2012, 08:12:22 AM »
Because of this league's complexity, it's very well possible that we don't find 30 dedicated people with decent CBA knowledge and the right attitude. (The latter includes forgiveness towards fixing mathematical blunders on the go, as well as genuine interest in learning how contracts can be constructed under the Gilbert Arenas rule.)

More importantly, we really need all participants to be responsible for their franchise's future in the long term, especially in case of teams under the salary cap. Let me explain based on an example: whoever gets the Bobcats or the Hornets must embrace the rebuilding process by investing in young players, wisely using his draft picks for a year or two, and then slowly improving in season 2 or 3 (OKC too were the worst team in this league once, y'know). The worst thing that could happen to our game is some win-oriented kid with little respect for how the NBA really functions, who starts off by overpaying a couple of aging losers and then quits after a month, while complaining about Kemba's struggles in the +/- category.

Going further, since the league will focus strongly on contract construction and such, it's very possible that managing teams like the Lakers or the Bulls - with their rotations fixed and their salaries just under the hard cap - will be less exciting (and surely less time-consuming).

All this leads me to a conclusion that maybe it makes sense to have two teams assigned to every GM: one in each conference. Preferably, one would contend and the other in the middle of a painful rebuilding, so that you can enjoy the ins & outs of both processes. Practical changes would include the yearly fee rising to $4, and of course transfer ban between your two franchises.

Thoughts?

I am ok with it too.  How would we decide on the 2 teams?  I am fine with a team given to me instead of choosing both.

That's kinda secondary :)
  • Let's see if people like the idea.
  • Let's see if I have more than 15 applications. In that case I'll have the luxury of preparing the Collective Bargaining Agreement Knowledge Test of Doom, CBAKToD (TM), to directly eliminate people who don't know absolutely anything and don't care enough to look it up.
  • Let's discuss together who gets what. Shouldn't be difficult. First all the die-hards get their home team. Then you look at the other conference and name a couple of teams that you like (either like per se, or like the challenge of their salary situation). Then we try to make everybody as happy as possible :)

i like this idea... we will have to have a good trade committee to make sure nobody takes advantage of having 2 teams.

I will follow the other managers.
Concern could indeed be trades between those teams having the same manager.....

Don't worry guys, like I wrote above: trades between your two franchises are forbidden. Trading with only 28 other teams should be realistic enough! :)

I don't see any issue with each GM taking 2 teams.
