I have no expectations other than complete failure.

Feel better?
I once had this guy named LeBron James on my team. He was decent.

Just as long as Caramel goes West. I'm sick of dealing with Caramel and Scates in the same division.

Caramel and Freddy might call for a KJ gut wrenching UFA 1 sim with teasers.

Caramel doesn't care about money anymore, so he'll sign in Milwaukee for half of the MLE. Mack/Caramel/Sweet/Rogic/Hope.

Caramel knows its only a matter of time before the Celtics start beating the Hawks in the playoffs again. He wants to be on the winning side.

Re: Trade: Boston and Houston

If I win this year I wouldn't even be mad if Caramel left. Ideally I'd resign him and trade him for value, but I'm getting to the point where I want to try different things. We will see though, cross that bridge when its time.

Low field goal percentage, turns it over too much, average defensively, can't shoot a three to save his life, no positional flexibility. He's A guy, whereas Xerxes is THE guy.

Duck gets a new cornerstone player to build around, and I expect his team to have a rise for the rest of this season (probably still miss the playoffs though), but should definitely be fighting for a playoff spot next year as they continue to build around the monster that is Xerxes Khoroushi.
Jude has the last laugh as he broke the triple double record last year and led my team to one win from a championship. He's also been shooting up around 50%.

Re: Trade: Boston and Houston

That's a unique stat and all, but I still don't see him as being on the same level as Xerxes. Xerxes is an absolute monster, and he dragged that Rockets team to the WCF last season. Xerxes is a perennial MVP candidate, I think he's the third or fourth best player in the entire sim.

Jude is better than I thought he was, but I feel pretty similarly about this trade now as I did when it happened.

Your team has/had undeniably more talent than that Rockets team.
