1995-96 NBA Replay -- C&D Basic
Permalink  
 


Hi all.

This will be a full NBA replay of the 1995-96 season.

The following rules are going to be used during the replay.

 

1. Opponent Defense Shot Results
2. F(1)/personal fouls
3. Rest
4. Rebounds
5. Action Deck
6. No 3-point shots
7. No Double-Team

 

 

1. Opponent Defense Shot Results
I'll use the Opponent Defense Shot Results from the game rules.

 

2. F-1/personal fouls
Many times we've seen the "F(2) monsters" like Karl Malone roll up personal fouls on the defense, putting players on the bench so fast that it becomes unfair. Sometimes a star player, like Jordan, will have to go to the bench early in the 1st quarter and sit the rest of that quarter with 2 quick fouls. It can happen even when using a foul assignment chart. Before you know it, the starting 5 are in foul trouble and become useless rotting on the bench. Besides, F2 on a shooter's card doesn't mean that the shooter was fouled. It's simply another of Strat's ratings based on total free throw attempts. I have a solution. Most SOM players won't like this because of the realism factor. Oh, well, can't please everyone. This is a drastic change in the way most have been playing SOM basketball.

In my replay, players are not charged with a personal foul. PF's do not accumulate, players are never in "foul trouble", and players cannot "foul out". Therefore, all your players are always available at all times, especially the star players, which is very important. Stars help make the team what it is. By having to put the stars on the bench the team changes and becomes much less effective. To me, this hurts the great teams too much, and the SOM basketball game itself. Who wants to even continue playing when players like Jordan, Lebron, Kobe, Malone, Bird, or Abdul-Jabbar are stuck on the bench in foul trouble the whole game!!!! Not me. To control usage, see #3 below.

F(1)- Shoot one foul shot. Simple as that. Since fouls aren't charged to players or teams, the Penalty Situation isn't used then. It's also has bothered me too that it is taking away a scoring opportunity, which hurts teams. The F(1) is very important. Players with high F(1) numbers should hurt their teams by allowing points.

 

3. Rest
Since I have the PC version as well, the players that are used will be the actual players that played in the game IRL. Their names will be marked as "E" (eligible) and then they will be given their individual playing time by the computer coach. Also, since I am using the players that are on the actual box score, there will be no injuries. There will be marked cards placed at the 10, 8, 6, 4 and 2 minute time remaining in the quarter. Based on the computer manager's instructions, the players will be substituted for at the specific time.

 

4. Rebounds
I don't give rebounds for missed free throws. Opponent looks at Control and play proceeds.

 

5. Basic Action Deck (BAD)
Basic action deck will be used.

 

6. 3-point shots
I won't be using 3-point shots. Going old school.

 

7. No Double-Team
No double-teaming during the game. The reasoning for no double-teaming is simple. The cards are created using the player's statistics for the full season, which also includes stats from when players are double-teamed.

My only comment about the way you are using your home brewed rules.........

Back in that era, 3-point shots were not as important as they are now, nor were they used to the extreme they are now (even taking Golden State out of the equation).

I think the common fan thinks the 3-point shot has always been this prevalent..........not saying you fall into that classification, I am just making a general comment.

If you look at the 1994 All-NBA teams.........1st, 2nd, and 3rd..........you are going to see a TON of huge powerful players that weren't shooters. Yes you have Reggie Miller and Clyde Drexler, but they are in the minority.

In 94-95 Miller took 470 3-point attempts. The average team took 1255 attempts during the season, with 4 teams under 1000.

This year, an average team took 1975 3-point attempts.......an increase of about 9 per team per game.

 Thanks for the reply and the feedback.

One of the reasons for me not using the 3-point shot is to keep the scoring down. I have read many complaints about higher scoring games in their replays or whatever. This way is an attempt to keep the scoring in check.

In 1995-96, the average number of 3-point attempts per team was 1316 with 4 teams under 1000 (Nets, 'Wolves, Pacers, Suns). The scoring average was 99.5 per team.

I'm expecting my first game to go above the league average because they were the #1 and #8 teams in points scored with Charlotte also being in the bottom 6 in points allowed. Michael Jordan only played 16 minutes in the first half so I also expect the Bulls to pick up the pace in the 2nd half with Jordan in more minutes.

I have never played the NBA version.....it is the only one I have not played (have done seasons of football and hockey over the years), so I am not into the differences between RL and the game.

I can tell you, with all the baseball replays and games I have played, offense increases about 5% versus real life.
