  1. Id go with the white team. Their players have proven much more at the D1 level. Kobe Webster, Kobe King, Trey McGowens, and Teddy Allen have all accomplished more than anyone on the red team has to date.
  2. The general managers voted on the restart model and prefered a play-in round over group stages (75%-25%). This shouldnt really be a shocker as GMs have more of a stake in how the team performs. If im the Bucks, Lakers, or any other high seed obviously I want to play the Magic-Grizzilies in the first round and only them compared to being grouped with four other teams of ranging ability. The owners vote will prob be based more on whichever model will be more lucrative for them.
  3. If we take the six schollie guys who were on the roster last year against the six that could be suiting up for us this year? Trevor Lakes is not included as he has no intentions of getting a waiver for immediate eligibility. Red Team: Akol Arop, Yvan Ourdraogo, Thorir Thorbjarnarson, Derrick Walker, Shamiel Stevenson, Dalano Banton White Team: Kobe Webster, Kobe King, Trey McGowens, Teddy Allen, Lat Mayen, Eduardo Andre
  4. July 31st is the hopeful restart date. A little later than what I was hoping for. There will be a vote amongst league owners on Thursday for Adam Silver to get therir input on how to to restart. A final decision should be coming soon after.
  5. No way. I have to completely disagree. After four years of LeBron-Warriors im overly excited for an NBA Playoffs with multiple contenders.
  6. Im hearing July 21st-ish for the start of games and, early on, NBA officials have said they would like to be finishing up the week of labor day (if thats since changed idk). Since you are completley eliminating travel, im sure the games will be more condensed. Which means teams are probably playing every other day. Maybe even some back to backs.
  7. From there, I prefer the World Cup Knockout Round format for the quarters. With this, you preset the quarter finals and let the chips fall where they may. G1 Winner v. G2 Runnerup G4 Winner v. G3 Runnerup G3 Winner v. G4 Runnerup G2 Winner v. G1 Runnerup For example, lets say the group stage goes chalk (which obviously wouldnt really happen), here are your quarterfinal matchups: - Bucks v. Jazz - Clippers v. Nuggets - Raptors v. Celtics - Lakers v. Heat Alright, thats all i got. Hopefully you enjoyed my posts. Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas. I love talking NBA!!!
  8. Here is how it would look: 1. Milwaukee Bucks 2. LA Lakers 3. Toronto Raptors 4. LA Clippers 5. Boston Celtics 6. Denver Nuggets 7. Utah Jazz 8. Miami Heat 9. OKC Thunder 10. Houston Rockets 11. Indiana Pacers 12. Philadelphia 76ers 13. Dallas Mavericks 14. Memphis Grizzlies 15. Brooklyn Nets 16. Orlando Magic 17. Portland Trailblazers 18. Sacramento Kings 19. New Orleans Pelicans 20. San Antonio Spurs G1: Bucks, Heat, Thunder, Magic, Blazers G2: Lakers, Jazz, Rockets, Nets, Kings G3: Raptors, Nuggets, Pacers, Grizzlies, Pelicans G4: Clippers, Celtics, 76ers, Mavericks, Spurs Each group plays double round robin within their group. Top two teams from each group advance to the the quarters.
  9. Once you have your particpants for the quarterfinals, you have two options on how to conduct them: 1. Reseed the quarterfinals. The top two teams each group get seeded based off of their regular season records. The playoffs continue from there. This ensures that the #1 seed still has an advantage earned from being the #1 seed, which is an easier path. 2. Soccer style quarterfinals. Have preset quarter final matchups regardless of how group play turns out. Ex --> Group 1 winner v. Group 4 runner up. Option 1 has the best odds of ensuring that the NBA finals is a matchup of the top two teams, regardless of whatever crazy upsets happen in group play. This is probably what they want in order to maximize ratings and revenue. Option 2 allows for more of a Cinderella run as its possible an unlikely team wins its group and paired against a lesser second place in a predetermined matchup. Resulting in one of those two teams advancing all the way to the semis atleast.
  10. *FOR OUR NBA FANS* The NBA's plan for a restart should be getting announced within the next week (NHL just released theirs). I wanted to share my favorite restart template and invite the boards avid NBA fans to to share their thoughts. Here is my favorite template: - Do not restart regular season or attempt to finish any games from regular season - Take the top 20 teams and rank them 1-20 based off of what the record was when the hiatus began. These 20 teams advance to the post season. Twenty teams makes it so the teams that were just outside the playoffs but still in the hunt are included (since they wont get a chance bc of the last 20ish regular season games are being canceled). This also means the bottom ten teams can focus on the off season since they had no realistic chance of making the playoffs anyway - From here take your top 20 teams, once again ranked from 1-20 based off record at date of hiatus, and snake draft them into four groups of five teams each. Conference affiliation will be disregarded - The playoffs will begin with group play. Each team will play every team in their group twice (8 games total for every team) - The top two teams from each group, based off of group play record, move on to what would be the quarterfinals. The remaining three teams from each group are eliminated - Quarters, semis, and finals would all be best of 7
  11. I believe when Yvan popped up on HCFHs radar he was being touted as 6'7 and then magically jumped to 6'9 in a very short period of time. Everybody seemed to be okay with it bc he had just turned 17 so he was very young. Plus our fanbase craves that elusive big man so 6'9 sounds much better than 6'7.
  12. Will never happen, but with COVID-19 and the fear of spreading through travel now would be the perfect time to scrap these ridiculous conferences and go back to ones based solely off of geography. Imagine this: - Nebraska - Iowa - Iowa State - Kansas - Kansas St - Missouri - Colorado - Oklahoma - Oklahoma St Everyone is fairly close and you get to play every team in your conference every single year. Im 24yo btw, not just some old head.
  13. There is a video of Yvan Ouedraogo dunking and he looks much more bouncy and explosive than what we saw his freshman year. If anyone cares to embed it, its on Yvan's account and was retweeted by Robin Washut.
  14. HCFH has adamantly stated that he will start the five most skilled players and work from there. And he has backed that up by playing games with no one taller than 6'7. Thats just something to keep in mind. If Eduardo Andre is starting from day one that means we got an absolute steal in the 2020 recruiting class imo.
  15. *Without Kobe King PG: K. Webster - D. Banton W: D. Banton - T. Thorbjarnarson W: T. Allen - T. Thorbjarnarson W: S. Stevenson - L. Mayen - A. Arop F: Y. Ouedraogo - D. Walker - E. Andre *With Kobe King PG: D. Banton - K. Webster W: K. King - T. Thorbjarnarson W: T. Allen - T. Thorbjarnarson W: S. Stevenson - L. Mayen - A. Arop F: Y. Ouedraogo - D. Walker - E. Andre
  16. I think Akol Arop, Lat Mayen, and Eduardo Andre have the least chance at starting. This whole pandemic thing is really going to benefit the more experienced, veteran players aside from the uber talented recruits. Yvan Ouedraogo and Thorir Thorbjarnarson both have atleast a years worth of experience under HCFH and playing B1G ball Dalano Banton, Shamiel Stevenson, and Derrick Walker all have a year under with HCFH and are experienced collegiate athletes Kobe Webster has a lot of experience and is clearly intelligent (or at the very least studious) since he graduated in 3 years Teddy Allen is a hooper. That is that. Kobe King, if eligible, is experienced not only in high major bball but also in the B1G Assuming all summer bball workouts and conditioning sessions get wiped out (will they be made up?) veteran/experienced players will have a upper hand come opening tip imo.
  17. Yikes. Didnt know that lol. Like i said, not a fan.
  18. Im rolling with: STARTERS Kobe Webster Dalano Banton Teddy Allen Shamiel Stevenson Yvan Ouedraogo BENCH Thorir Thorbjarnarson Derrick Walker Lat Mayen Eduardo Andre Akol Arop Will adjust as/if sit-out guys become eligible.
  19. Not a fan of MLB or baseball in general really. However, I always found the DH rule to be fascinating. I also am a fan of how they use the all-star game to dictate home field advantage in the World Series. The all star game outcome in MLB has the biggest impact since you are essentially playing for home field and house rules. I also like how they are considering temporarily grouping teams bc region, regardless of the league. But I will be mainly following in hopes the NBA is able to gather info on how to properly restart and finish the season (playoffs).
  20. Cam Mack >> Kobe Webster Haanif Cheatham >> Lat Mayen Thorir Thorbjarnarson << Teddy Allen Dachon Burke < Kobe King Yvan Ouedraogo < Eduardo Andre Kevin Cross, Jervay Green, Matej Kavas > Trevor Lakes
  21. The payment would definitely have to be adjusted if it were to happen
  22. I really hope this means we can RS Akol Arop. I think it would benefit both Arop and the coaching staff. No inside info here, just my hope. Anyways, congrats to Eduardo Andre! Excited to see how he fits in with Yvan, Lat, and Derrick.
  23. Looking for opinions... So if non-conf games get cut and this years football season consists of only conference games the G5 and FCS schools will lose out on ALOT of money. So here's an idea to help them out: In the Spring of 2021 schools are allowed to play one or two exhibition games. This would temporarily (or permanently) replace traditional spring games. So instead of a Red v. White scrimmage, we play two exhibition games against Central Michigan and South Dakota State. Now obviously those two schools would have to receive some type of payment. Im sure it would have to be modified since its not a regular season game and surely wouldnt be covered nationally as much as one. Thoughts?
  24. It is looking more and more like we will see Hoiberg's largest starting lineup of his collegiate coaching career in the 2020-21 season.
