So. Nailed it.
Spurs had an iffy season, plagued by injuries to old people. Won the division, but got bounced by Houston in the first round of the playoffs. Earlier in the year, I had ended up trading away Manu. I didn't really WANT to trade Manu, but NBA 2k Manu has emotional problems. Basically, he gets classified as a role player or sixth man.. which he kinda is. But he's FEATURED, and gets tons of minutes. The game logic can't decide if it likes Manu's role or his minutes, and either way Manu gets just pissed the hell off and demands a trade. I ended up with the Pelican's 1st rounder.
So blah blah, trade trade scout scout. Saw some great prospects coming up in the draft I feared I wouldn't get. Pel's pick was #10. Got offered a trade up to #6, but had to give up Kawhi Leonard for Tobias Harris. Looked at Kawhi's sheet, and he straight up said he'd already decided that we could go to hell, he's testing free agency after next season. Okay, so go test it for your new team, Mr. Leonard.
With that pick, we drafted our coveted 7'1" center. 78 overall, B potential. Huge talented big man. With our #10 we basically replaced Manu. SG/SF type with 90 speed, 99 layup. Bald. It's Manu 2. Tweaks and so forth.. We start preseason an 89 overall.
SF: Tobias Harris
C: Baxter (Rookie guy)
Also have Beaubois (Our MLE), Belinelli (Pissed off), Splitter (Overpaid), R. Anderson (Not so bad), Mercer (Manu II), surprisingly solid team that's suddenly young. Duncan is down to an 82 overall and 38 years old, so.. gotta deal with that.
