I'm getting alot of tallent for this year that won't likely be here next year except Shaq and Diogu. plus this year I'll have about 5 mil. more to sign.
finally we got a fair deal...Yao will start for one year...then ill focus on resigning Dirk with the bird years...Prince is an Allstar combo forward and much better then Bibby (if anybody want him let me know lol) but shaq is some years older than yao...so i guess thats ok...still we dont know how long yao can play with those various foot injuries...but i already have a good team and no risk no fun...ill miss Blake as i am a lakers fan but i accept.
This is such a joke why would I let you sign my player just to trade him away like really Hawks that is such a low blow to me and players I'm sorry but I picked your team because I thought you wouldn't just turn around and trade him but i guess I was wrong..

I don't like it not for the fact that it's a good or bad trade, but it's basically circumventing a rule.
I don't know if the rule is written or unwritten, but whenever I made a trade using FA signees, I have always waited until December 15th game wise before I traded them, and I think that should apply here too, whenever a GM asked me to trade with my newest player I said, wait till DEC 15th sim wise and then come back to me with an offer.
I think a lot of GM's feel the same way about this, that whether it's written or unwritten this rule should be enforced.
well i really thought ill keep Shaq....ut in the minute i got how Charlotte sent me a PM he is highly interested....in the end its a sim league...and the fun here is about trading...i already was interested in yao but the deal was rejected...so i packed Shaq along with Prince and one of my favorites Blake and Diogu and packed old Bibby on the other side with yao...and we had a great fair trade for both sides
i really hope now yao gets healthy in real life....i didnt expect this...but in the end everybody of us tries to improve the team and if the right opportunity comes along, who wouldnt risk it?
(the 15.dec-rule is written in the real NBA - in sim leagues normally u can trade right from the beginning, cuz trading is fun and keeps the activity high)

All sim leagues maintain a certain balance between realism and entertainment. This is either crossing the line or close to it. I'm actually in favour of establishing the real-life NBA rule which disallows the trading of recently signed FAs until a certain date.
Either way, Charlotte's managed to turn Pau Gasol into Yao and now into Shaq. Shaq's a hero and a legend, but not a great player any more. I feel I'd reject either way, whether for realism's sake or the trade itself.
Deron Williams - OJ Mayo - Luol Deng - Chris Bosh - Kendrick Perkins 2006/07 - 28W-54L 2007/08 - 39W-43L 2008/09 - 52W-30L (Semi Finalists) 2009/10 - 53W-29L (Semi Finalists) 2010/11 -
Well thats Why i included allstar forward Prince and Lakers PG Blake and 70 Pf. Diogu for old bibby. So this makes the Trade very fair and a winwin for both Sides. I would appreciate it of u can approve the Trade And please Yao get healthy
I'll accept as long as Atlanta knows his free agency options are probably going to be severely hurt as long as he remains in D5
thx, iam loyal to most of my players (franchiseplayer Dirk) and FAs from last season: Jason Williams, still on my team. Lorenzen Wright (RIP) and Snyder were on my team ill his contract ended...and Diogu and Blake were on my team till this shaq deal came around...Kapono was even resigned now
