Season 64 preview

Post by TheCoach » 2018-4-16 22:30

One thing we have done in the past is put together your team preview for next season as a fun way to write about your team and get to know your team and you as a manager better.

Shockwave are looking interesting to say the least in season 64. It went from looking like there was going to be wing issues to now surplus of wings.

The projection as of now (still 3 weeks to add some talent)

PG Rosa rate 300
SG Englisch 310, Sandstorm 315, Torstensdatter 315
SF Okur 320, Teng 310 (after jump), Moryet 295
P Huan 325, Kemp 295, Nang 285

I will give more information on them and the youth team later.

PG Rosa rate 300
SG Englisch 310, Sandstorm 315, Torstensdatter 315
SF Okur 320, Teng 310 (after jump), Moryet 295
P Huan 325, Kemp 295, Nang 285

I am going a different route, testing a long theory I have had. Maybe, it is better to go after the old players that people don't want so that I can get cheaper players, getting extra players will help in case of injuries. It will definitely be interesting.

PG Rosa will continue to be the starting PG for the foreseeable future. He should continue putting up 12-14 points with 4-5 assists per game. He is holding fort until further development of youth stud player Babham.

At shooting guard and SF I have no idea who will start. It will likely change game to game depending on opponent, tactics, and injury status. The only definite of players at the SG and SF position is Okur will start at one of the two spots leaving the possibility of Englisch, Sandstorm, Tortensedatter, Moryet, or Teng playing the other wing. Okur should be good for his 60% shooting and close to 12 points. The other group will be interesting because all the diverse ways that they can score. Defensively it could be a matchup nightmare not knowing which player starts and at which position. Any of the other 5 points could put up 20 points in any given game with the exception of maybe Moryet who is more like a max 15-16 point player on any given day.

Post positions also provide diversity. Kemp is the cornerstone of the future here and is good for 10-12 points and 5-6 rebounds. Nang is developing nicely and will be a solid player in another season. Right now Huan is the veteran providing leadership, defense, and sharp shooting.

The team is still exploring other options on the market and/or trades. More to follow.

Players that are not on the main team nor the youth and could be traded or lended out next season.

Eugene Tyrell
A. Glodas
C. Clifton

Players undecided where they will play
Bailey Bartelott, yes you read that correctly. The Angry Russ and Shockwave have agreed upon a trade that has been discussed for numerous seasons. Bartelott will now be a Shockwave and provide a possible offense that is needed of the youth players. In exchange the Shockwave are giving up a lot to get a lot. Giving up sharpshooter SG Parsons and athletic phenom PF Molygnton.

Franklin Carbonall is a 18 year old player (19 next season) that should develop into a future start for the Shockwave. He has already made headlines by competing and winning the WL1 one on one championship during all-star days.

Youth team members
PG Babham - future face of the franchise,6'7" point guard that has average 14 points 4 assists this season, enough said
SG Alzola - Spaniard sensation provides more length also 6'7" and scoring at 10 a game and score all over the floor
SF Lyfeld - If Bartelott plays on the youth team Lyfeld comes off the bench. If you sleep on Lyfeld he will make you pay with sneak attacks. He is the glue of the youth team making the offense and defense more efficient
PF Blasi - Developed quite a bit this last season improving his scoring and rebounding numbers quite a bit. There is going to be more to come with Blasi as he develops into the pick and roll partner for Babham.
C Guage "Double Double" Dryden - Consistent inside presence that teams have to reckon with. Any given day he is capable of 20 points and 10 rebounds as he has the ability to dominate.

Bench
PG Campbell - mini Babham but also a 6'7" point guard
SG Yu - sharp shooter and at 6'4" the shortest member of the Shockwave youth team
P - Lowth - In the mold of Molygnton a definite contributor off the bench
P - Sandes - Statistically doesn't do much but does make his teammates better always looking to set them up.

Bench could include Carbonall and/or Lyfeld depending on where Bartelott goes.
Pretty excited about this bunch going forward, hopefully I will be able to keep them together.

NBN is still overloaded with players and will still be looking to trade 3 players for a better player, either RT or potential wise. If you think you have something to offer, send us a message. We have our projected teams penciled in as:

Pos - Age - RT - Name
PG - 25 - 255 - Rou Very happy with this guy we acquired in a trade last year
SG - 24 - 272 - Sandys This guy is shaping up very well. Hoping he contributes more this coming season.
SF - 28 - 273 - McClean An original 7 potential player that turned out good- may be moving to backup before end of year.
PF - 27 - 288 - Dawne One of the slowest players in BBZ but still a force to be reckoned with. I think he rivals Gage this year
C - 28 - 273 - Gage A truly 1 man wrecking crew. Accolades galore and I really don't know why. 164 MVP of the Match.

Bench
PG - 25 - 259 - Turner A tall player with crazy offense inner potentials, so he is our backup PG and does well at it.
SG - 23 - 254 - Cosworth This one is about to break out into his own, sometime next season I think.
SF - 23 - 244 - Bowyar A short speedy tough guard that loves to go toe to toe with the bigs. Shooting 66% 2pt shots in YL
PF - 23 - 223 - Brodnax Our Denomitive player. We think he will play like Gage soon and is 81% 2pt in YL last 2 seasons.
C - 22 - 205 - Bishopson Forced into action sooner than we liked he has performed extremely well, great future ahead.

The Youth Team is up in the air but there are some good young stars coming up...
PG - 23 - 223 Tregonwell with his 7 potential is almost ready for MT but can't displace Turner yet.
SG - 25 - 210 MacDonald is a victim of circumstances. He is quite good but hard pressed to find playing time.
SG - 21 - 206 Good has the makings of another star and we're shaping him for action in 1 to 2 years.
SF - 21 - 200 Bishop who is listed as SG is very defensive with an eye for the long ball.
SG - 24 - 212 Beaurepaire is a player that can be brilliant or sub par on any given day. We're working on his skills.
SF - 23 - 197 Clopton is a fine SF-PF player who with time should be an fine substitute.
PF - 21 - 171 Berecraft is another high offense skills player. Hard to make this work with a big but we're trying.

The rest of the YT and BB School players are too untested to really comment much on, but there are some that will remain on NBN for their careers. Some won't, like PF Draw & SF Bowyar who are both 19 and headed to Mercury next year. We wish them a great future.

Our hopes are to make it to WL2 next year and we are very worried the 1 trade issue may put a kink in the works. Another roadblock to navigate. And with our coach being 72 this year we are going to be attempting to get a younger one next year.

Overall my team is like the Atlanta Hawks of yesteryear. During their 2014-2015 run. No superstar standouts on my team, but they get things done.

Starting Line-up:
PG: Cipruss (27yo, 288) - unfortunately short; training him to be a better stealer.
SG: Veić (28yo, 261) - over-priced, a little short, stop-gap measure for shooting. can't wait for young talent to replace him.
SF: More (28yo, 304) - well-priced (from scout) jack-of-all-trades.
PF: Zun (30yo, 312) - sadly turned 30, anchor of the post.
C: Savino (28yo, 288) - effective, tall, big man.

Bench:
PG: Rosales (24yo, 231) - borrowed player. potentially interesting experiment focused on steals + assists.
SG: Canon (31yo, 301) - old reliable. previous go-to-guy. anchoring my bench. very pleased with how he turned out with only 8 potential.
SF: Waltham (23yo, 242) - am excited about this rising prospect. still on low minutes, but will play a bigger role in coming years.
PF/C: Bowett (26yo, 252) - homegrown replacement for Zun.

Devils USA 1 and WL 4
PG Roper 225
SG Toulon 228 (star of the team)
SF Mustafa 234
PF LaBarre 217 (denominative player)
C from NBN landed, last name too long and complicated 206

Bench
Ferry C/PF 234
twarby SF/SG/ occasional PF if needed 217
Gudelis SG/SF (used to be the star of the team 2-3 seasons ago) now to bench role 208
Young 216 PG/SG

goals: to stay in USA 1 but at least be in top 8 and win some money AND hopefully have a shot at advancing to WL3.
lets see.
