Hello everyone and welcome to my Seattle Shooting Stars Franchise Thread! I want to thank you for your time in viewing it. For those wondering about the process, I created a team full of free agents plus one player that I kept from the franchise I replaced, which was the Sacramento Kings. That gives you my "expansion team". For the rest of the players on the Kings' roster, I held a "compensation draft" if you will based on this past season's draft order. The teams were given the player I felt fit their needs or were just the best player available. 82 games is a bit too much, therefore during the season I will play a game then sim a game for the entire season. The first season was simmed.

Game: NBA 2K15
Console: X-box 360
Difficulty: Hall of Fame
Quarter Length: 9 Minutes

I want to thank everyone again for viewing my thread and encouraging any: comments, suggestions or questions. I will do my best in order to make this as creative, interesting and realistic as possible.

Seattle Barely Edges Spurs On Vesely's Late Lay-In

vs (22-15)

Pre Game Thoughts: After winning their last 7 consecutive games and 9 of their last ten, the Shooting Stars streak finally came to an end as they fell to the Lakers in a big conference game. They enter tonight's game going against a very good, experienced Spurs team who has been on a hot streak of their own, winning 9 of their last 10 games. This game features two of the hottest teams in the league and could very well be a matchup come playoff time.

1st Quarter: Early on the game saw great defense from both sides along with some sloppy offensive possessions. It was back and forth as each sides would answer back. Corey Brewer had big shoes to fill in the starting lineup as Kawai Leonard was out in this one; Brewer made a huge impact both offensively and defensively. Emmanuel Mudiay also had a big impact as he left the 1st quarter with 12 points.

2nd Quarter: With John Henson already out, the Shooting Stars took a huge blow when Jarvis Varnado was forced to leave the game which left Seattle with only 3 big men for the rest of the game. As if that was bad enough, Wayne Selden would need to leave the game in the same quarter, arguably the team's biggest producer off the bench. The 2nd was much like the previous quarter, back and forth basketball as both sides would answer each other. 7 lead changes were exchanged in the 2nd. Mudiay posterized Tony Parker late in the quarter to tie up the game.

3rd Quarter: Jimmy Butler would get into foul trouble early in the 3rd which would deplete the Shooting Stars even more. Despite that, they came out hot in the 3rd and shot the ball very well. They jumped ahead to early 9 point lead which was headlined by their 10-2 run. Seattle's offense was clicking on all cylinders and they were able to take an 8 point lead into the final quarter.

4th Quarter: The Spurs cut the deficit to only 3 points early on, making this game even more exciting and competitive. However, every time San Antonio would get something cooking on offense, Seattle would answer. Halfway through the 4th, the Spurs were able to tie the game; these next 4 minutes shaped up to be very entertaining. Boris Diaw had a huge block on Mudiay as he launched the ball into the crowd and shifted the momentum. With Seattle down a few players, they seemed very fatigued as the game entered the final stretch, they were also in foul trouble. With 2 and a half minutes left, Ginobli hit a big 3 pointer to give the Spurs the lead. Seattle would answer to tie the game back up. About a minute later Jimmy Butler would toss up an air ball, luckily Jan Vesely was there to catch it and lay it in for a 2 point lead, the biggest play of the game. Anderson Varejao had a big block on Ginobli on San Antonio's next possession. Peyton Siva missed an open shot which would make it a comfortable 2 possession game for Seattle. After being blocked on their previous possession, Ginobli would miss a lay up to tie the game the next time down the court. Butler would then miss an open 3 pointer to close out the game, giving the Spurs 24 seconds on the clock and one more chance to tie it up, or even win the game. With a few seconds on the clock, a timeout was called. The timeout didn't pay off as Parker missed a 3 pointer he probably should've made which would've given the Spurs the victory.

Post Game Thoughts: "What a game. Obviously you always want to win, but winning the close games are always a little bit sweeter. Both teams came to play and brought their "A game" today. I have to give credit to Greg Popovich and the Spurs, but it was my guys who just happened to come out on top."
-Terry Stotts

Game Notes:
-San Antonio failed to score any points in the final 2 minutes
-Wayne Selden & Jarvis Varnado were both forced to leave the game in the 2nd quarter

Kings Moving To Seattle; Become Expansion Team


Ranadive took the NBA by storm with his announcement this past evening.

SACRAMENTO -- Only a year after purchasing the Sacramento Kings franchise from the Maloof family, current owner, Vivek Ranadive has decided to move the franchise up north a little bit into Seattle. Seattle has been without an NBA team since 2008 after the franchise headed down south to Oklahoma City and became known as the Thunder. The city of Seattle has been ever so eager for another basketball team to come in and replaced their beloved SuperSonics.

Ranadive wasn't done shaking things up yet. In a move that took a lot in order for the NBA to approve it, the Kings will become the NBA's newest expansion team. What this means is that the Kings' roster will be competely dismantled and replaced by free agents. The NBA will hold a compensation draft based on this past season's draft order with the new Seattle franchise holding the top pick in order to distribute out the current players on the Kings' roster. DeMarcus Cousins seems like the only viable option for the expansion team, but they could shake it up. The rules of the draft are simple:

-No trades allowed
-You take on the exact contract of the player you select
-You don't have to select a player


The main reason Ranadive decided to do this is based on the poor performances of recent Kings' teams. He wanted to start from scratch and build this team up on his own while giving them a fresh, new look and a new start in a new city where he knew the team would be welcomed with open arms. A team name switch is expected as well which would bring new uniforms. This move surely shakes up the NBA and makes things a lot more interesting; we will provide you with more information as this story develops.

Seattle Goes With Cousins In Compensation Draft


Seattle chose to build their franchise around DeMarcus Cousins, as most expected.

SEATTLE -- As most expected, the now named Seattle Shooting Stars chose DeMarcus Cousins at the top of the compensation draft as the dismantling of the Kings' franchise is now in full effect. Cousins is coming off a season in which he recorded career highs in all major categories which included over 20 points and over 10 rebounds per game while finally establishing himself as one of the elite centers in the NBA. Cousins gives Seattle a great piece to build around.

Other notable movement from the compensation draft was Rudy Gay to Milwaukee. The 76ers were really hoping for him to slide to them at #3 but the Bucks couldn't pass on the talented slasher. Gay was reportedly the only other player Seattle contemplated selecting with the top pick. Instead of Gay, Philly had to settle with Darren Collision who provides good depth in the backcourt along with reigning Rookie of the Year, Michael Carter-Williams. First round picks from the last 2 years followed as Ben McLemore went to Orlando and Nik Stauskas was chosen by the Jazz. Ray McCallum slipped all the way to 13 to Minnesota; most thought he'd go top 10 based on his ceiling. The Pistons and Knicks were the only teams to forfeit their picks.

1.) Seattle Shooting Stars: C Demarcus Cousins
2.) Milwaukee Bucks: SF Rudy Gay
3.) Philadelphia 76ers: PG Darren Collison
4.) Orlando Magic: SG Ben McLemore
5.) Utah Jazz: SG Nik Stauskas
6.) Boston Celtics: PG Ramon Sessions
7.) Los Angeles Lakers: PF Carl Landry
8.) Detroit Pistons: Forfeit Pick
9.) Cleveland Cavaliers: PF Reggie Evans
10.) New Orleans Pelicans: SF Derrick Williams
11.) Denver Nuggets: PF Jason Thompson
12.) New York Knicks: Forfeit Pick
13.) Minnesota Timberwolves: PG Ray McCallum
14.) Phoenix Suns: C Ryan Hollins


With the compensation draft now in the books, the Seattle Shooting Stars are now ready to build around DeMarcus Cousins as they go through the process of selecting their team from the crop of free agents.

Ray Allen Headlines Crop Selected By Seattle


Ray Allen returns to Seattle after playing in the city from 2003-2007.

SEATTLE -- After the extremely tedious process of evaluating players and trying to find the right fits, Seattle Head Coach Mike Malone and General Manager Pete D'Alessandro finally announced the roster for the Shooting Stars which was long awaited by the league and the fans. Headlining the selections was veteran Ray Allen, arguably one of the best pure shooters in NBA history. Allen previously played in Seattle for the SuperSonics. When asked about his role, Mike Malone said this:

"Ray is a winner and a competitor, he will be the leader and voice of this team. Despite his age, he can still compete at a high level. Jordan (Crawford) will see most of the starts at the 4 so Ray will serve as our 6th man and be one of the best in the league this season."

Other notable selections were veterans Chauncey Billups and Michael Beasley. Billups, who announced his retirement from the NBA this off season agreed to help coach Malone and run the point for Seattle this season. Beasley, the former 2nd overall pick, contemplated going overseas to play basketball but agreed to join the new franchise after being offered a starting gig. Youngsters such as Jordan Crawford, MarShon Brooks and Jordan Hamilton are other notable names.

Obviously, DeMarcus Cousins will have the biggest impact on this team. Coach Malone and D'Alessandro did the best job they could at building an adequate team around Cousins with what they had to work with. Obviously much won't be expected from the expansion Shooting Stars, but it shouldn't be long before they have a good team built that will compete in the Western Conference.

Projected Depth Chart

C: DeMarcus Cousins, Andrew Bynum
PF: Michael Beasley, Jarvis Varnado, Jan Vesely
SF: Jordan Hamilton, Earl Clark, Quincy Miller
SG: Jordan Crawford, Ray Allen, MarShon Brooks
PG: Chauncey Billups, Peyton Siva, Diante Garrett

The thing I like most about 2k15 it let's you use rotations similar to real life situations.

I like your depth chart how it looks right now except for Crawford starting. He has the Microwave, and Spark Plug badges in the game meaning he would be better suited coming off the bench behind Brooks (who is a better defender in game) with Ray Allen taking minutes at the 3.

This is really cool. I usually always click on these types of things and it seems lame and almost always, the person who starts usually will quit a few days or so afterward. I love the idea and you seem like a really quality poster just judging from your NBA Season Preview series.

Doing an expansion draft seems like a good idea because the Kings haven't had much success since the Webber/Bibby, etc days; but they did have a lot of young talent on that team so it must have been a tough decision to break them up. Obviously DeMarcus Cousins is the no-brainer choice to choose to build around, though.

Thanks man, I really appreciate that. I'm definitely going to keep up with it and make this as interesting and creative as possible.

I definitely know what you're saying about breaking up the Kings. I wasn't sure with who else to go with, maybe the Jazz would've served as a more realistic option.

As for my next installments; I will post: an End of Season Review, Awards, Playoffs, Draft and Notable Free Agency signings. After that, I can finally get started with some games and commence the 2015-2016 NBA season!

How'd the Bulls get bounced in the 1st round by the Raptors? Did they have key players get injured or something?

Surprisingly no, they were at full health in that series. Ironically, they actually got Joakim Noah back from an injury right before the start of the post season.

All off season news to come shortly!

Changes To Come In Seattle After Inaugural Season


Jimmy Butler and John Henson were 2 solid pieces added by Seattle during the season.

SEATTLE -- Coming into the season, much wasn't expected of the new NBA franchise as it was a team virtually built from scratch. However, they did the best they could with what they had to work with. The Shooting Star got off to a surprisingly good start to the season as they competed with teams such as the Warriors and Suns in the middle of the division. However, injuries hindered the club all season long and they fell to the bottom of the division, just behind the Lakers. The Shooting Stars finished the season losing 12 of their last 13 games with the 2nd worst record in the league, the Magic with the worst.

The front office made two solid moves during the season. Ray Allen had garnered interest from teams around the NBA all season long as teams looked for an experienced scoring specialist as they tried to make a deep playoff run. General Manage Pete D'Allesandro was patient as he waited for the right deal to come along. At the trade deadline, D'Allesandro was able to strike a deal with the Chicago Bulls, sending Allen to the Bulls in exchange for defensive specialist, Jimmy Butler. Butler, in a contract year went on to sign a 4 year extension worth just over $20 million with Seattle following the deal. Butler had a career year, averaging nearly 15 points per game with 8 rebounds as well as his tremendous defensive efforts which would give him All Defensive 1st Team honors. Butler gives the team another solid piece to build around along with Demarcus Cousins.

The other move made by D'Allesandro was the swap of Andrew Bynum to Milwaukee for young power forward, John Henson. Henson is a very good rebounder who can do a little bit of everything else.

Headlining the season for the Shooting Stars was All Star DeMarcus Cousins being named All NBA 1st Team. Also, Jordan Crawford was named the NBA's Most Improved Player.

Finishing the season with a 26-56 record, just 2 wins shy of last season's record by the Kings, Mike Malone is not expected to be re-signed as the team's head coach. Early candidates seem to be: Brett Brown, Terry Stotts, Avery Johnson and Jacque Vaughn.
