Welcome to a thrown together season preview (Meaning: so much stuff happened so fast, I didn't have time to work with the Insider or make any new fancy graphics, and no one was willing to sponsor this entry. #MyApologies).

Thanks for your time and effort.





Last week was a mess for the world of ISBA. We jumped to playoffs so Vince, the top favorite to win the title doesn't miss the playoffs. Then after first round an unnamed member turned admin went with the logical move and tried to advance to the next round. Sadly that move moved us to the offseason with no winner of season 1. After a short back and forth it was decided that there won't be a champion, and that we will proceed with season 2. However the league was paused and offseason was in 2K's hands so the advance timer said that we have 6 days until next period. *Time goes by so slowly.* And after we slept over those 6 days, 2K decided to make us wait another 30 days in an attempt to simulate real life offseason length. That wasn't really well received and #Reboot was born. Sadly (again) it was set on Superstar difficulty and CPU on Superstar is the biggest try-hard ever. So #Revamp was born, renamed ISBA Forever for better marketing purposes.

TEAMS
All of this left very little time to make a new season preview because two different leagues were abandoned over last 48h. I don't think that anyone left the league so far (Crax was paid to stay by giving him a headliner spot in all "Shaqtin' A Fool" segments for the season) and there's one new member - Brandon. Around 1/2 of the league changed their teams, with Paul, Vince, Goldielox69, Luka, Chrome, Simon, Kia & KJ staying with their Season 1 teams.
Justin took Thunder, Bryan Jazz, Ante Hornets then Blazers, Mulac Cavs, Sukan left Canada for Indiana (not much of an upgrade tbh), Envy went to Boston, Leroy debuts with Washington (the cameo in S1 doesn't count), Hassan still hasn't made a decision, and yours truly took his talents to Rockies and Denver Nuggets. We are still waiting for Brandon take his first coaching spot.
I doubt anyone really expects Jeebs to join and be an active member after missing out on last few #TuesdayCameos.

The league conference power battle switched to Western Conference with 10 teams and making it more stacked than last seasons East. That also means that whoever wins WCF will meet Vince & Heat in The Finals, unless Vince gets married while on Hawaii or a shark eats him (Baywatch Hawaii, and Magnum P.I. were used as premise to this claim).

TRADES
The trade frenzy started before the league opening day so we already are witnesses to Royce for Burks & Cunter (sp?) and JaVale for Bogut (part of the deal to keep Craxiors from jumping ship to the sea of My Team and the world of butthurt). The Lakers are also trying to do their annual SF trade (Small Forward, but could also easily mean Science Fiction). It can get only better from this point on. And by better I mean more rowdy.

PROJECTED STANDINGS

EAST WEST
1 Heat 46-12 1 Lakers 44-14
2 Wizards 39-19 2 Warriors 42-16
3 Pacers 37-21 3 Blazers 38-20
4 Bulls 35-23 4 Rockets 36-22
5 Knicks 31-27 5 Thunder 35-23
6 Sixers 29-29 6 Jazz 32-26
7 Cavs 29-29 7 Nuggets 31-27
8 Celtics 27-31 8 Mavs 29-29
9 Bucks 25-33 9 Grizzlies 29-29
10 Nets 24-34 10 Clippers 26-32
11 Bobcats 22-36 11 Suns 25-33
12 Hawks 21-37 12 Spurs 23-35
13 Pistons 20-38 13 Wolves 22-36
14 Raptors 18-40 14 Kings 20-38
15 Magic 16-42 15 Hornets 19-39

A quick note about each team:
- Heat - Vince continues where he left off in S1, projected record shows how dominant he's going to be in East.
- Wizards - Leroy is going to dominate most CPU teams and if he steps up, he might beat a lot of human users as well. Time to shine.
- Pacers - The CPU King, Sukan will again go 100-0 in first week by playing CPU games. Pacers are a huge upgrade over Toronto.
- Bulls - What we saw in S1 is probably what we are going to see in #Revamp.
- Cavs - A team filled with young players will struggle against most human teams and even some CPU might be an issue. On the bubble for the playoffs. Future is theirs.
- Celtics - Anything is possible with Envy and Celtics. Lets hope we talk only positives about C's in weeks to come.
- Lakers - Paul caught fire late into S1 and now that he's fully accustomed to Lakers he will rise in the standings.
- Warriors - sir Arthur talked about Nellieball and fun one day and then traded for two 7 footers the next. A contender, even if he doesn't admit it. Hope he turns face again.
- Blazers - Ante has a solid 5-6 man core and a bunch of nobodies, but he'll be extra motivated to play Paul in the Playoffs and will do his best to push that meeting all the way back to WCF.
- Rockets - The biggest winner of the reboot & revamp, instead of Alonzo Gee and Boobie Gibson, Luka has James Harden.
- Thunder - Justin goes from East's best scorer to West's. A playoff team, pacing themselves to shine in the Playoffs.
- Jazz - Royce White's new home, could be a issue if Bryan tries to hard to make White the focal point of the offense. Otherwise a lock for the playoffs.
- Nuggets - Sweet looking alternate jerseys.
- Mavs - The home of the CPU_Mavs, they will be carried again by huge number of sim games and split series, so they are projected to split the 58 games.
- Grizzlies - A team on the bubble, much like last season, could be hurt by the influx of human coaches.
- Suns - A mystery to all contacted sources.

INDIVIDUAL AWARDS & ALL-ISBA TEAMS


That's pretty much it for this edition of the Season Preview. Lets hope that the next season preview will be for the 2013/2014 season and not for #ReReReBoot. thx. Go Green!

Denver will finish MUCH better than 7th. Top 3-4 in the West. That's a good team and with Bogut in the mix it will be a tough team to stop.

I haven't decided how to integrate Royce into my rotation yet.

Lots of respect for the Pacers. I'm hoping they finish that goo.

OKC > Portland

You can use him as a playmaker of the second unit. Initiate a couple of high post plays and you're ready to go.
