I can’t believe this is actually happening. My lifelong dreams…They’re finally coming true…

Better get some sleep so I’m fresh for the tryout tomorrow.


“Tryout?”

“H-huh? Oh, Marvin, it’s just you.”

“Chief, what tryout are you talking about? Your baseball career’s been over, ever since That Game…”

I wince in pain at the mention of That Game. “Oh, right. So, uh, what am I so excited about?”

“Chief, you’re interviewing for the Bucks’ GM job tomorrow!”

“Oh! Oh, yeah. Right. Well, uh, better get some, uh, sleep. Night.”

“Night, Chief.”

Marvin turns off the light and walks over to his bed, on the other side of the wooden nighttable. Then I close my eyes and begin dreaming…

“Congratulations, Simon. You got the job…at Carl’s Jr., maybe. You certainly didn’t get the job here,” an unfamiliar voice tells me.

Someone spits in my face. “Thanks for nothing,” the mystery man says.

“Now scram! Get out before I call security on you!”

What a lovely dream…

Hopefully it doesn’t come true.

I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

There are always rumors about a team moving to Seattle…

But will they ever come true?


“Name and occupation, please.”

“My name’s Simon Young, and I’m the general manager of the Milwaukee Bucks.”

“Confidence. I like it. Now, if you get the job, what would be your first order of business?”

“Well, I’m thinking about an aggressive rebuild. This year’s draft class is pretty deep, and acquiring a lot of draft picks along with expiring contracts will allow us to quickly reshape the roster. There are some young players I would like to keep around, though—I see a lot of potential in Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker, for example.”

“Interesting. I like it. You’re hired. Now, as GM, you’ll have to stay within the goals I set for you. I don’t want to hear about you breaking any promises you make to players, and I want our team morale to be at least above-average (60).”

“My word is stronger than oak, sir. And as for the team morale, I will do everything I can to keep the players happy.”

“Now as for my wish list: I’d like to make the playoffs within three seasons. I’d also like to see you acquire at least one extra first-round draft pick for the upcoming season. I would also like to be respectable on the road with at least 17 road wins.”

“I will try my hardest to accomplish those goals, although I am a bit uncertain about our chances at pulling out 17 road wins during a time of such high roster turnover.”

“That’s fair, I won’t hold that against you as much due to your uncertainty.”

“I appreciate it, sir.”

“I think we’re done here, unless there’s anything else you want to ask.”

“No, sir, I think I understand everything.”

“I look forward to working with you.”

We shake hands, and I walk down the hall into my new office, a spacious (and empty) wooden room with only a desk, a chair, and a couple bookshelves in it. The bookshelves are, of course, completely empty, but there is a telephone on the desk along with a list of phone numbers for GMs around the league. My first call is to the Houston GM, Daryl Morey. All in all, I make a dozen calls and eight trades during that first day:

— Trade with Houston: Received K.J. McDaniels and 2017 1st-round pick for Miles Plumlee and Damien Inglis
— Trade with San Antonio: Received Kyle Anderson and Patrick Mills for Michael Carter-Williams, Chris Copeland, and 2017 2nd-round pick
— Trade with Charlotte: Received Cody Zeller and Brian Roberts for John Henson and Jerryd Bayless
— Trade with Philadelphia: Received Carl Landry and 2016 1st-round pick for Greg Monroe
— Trade with Portland: Received Gerald Henderson and 2016 1st-round pick for Khris Middleton
— Trade with Atlanta: Received Mike Muscala and Walter Tavares for Tyler Ennis, Johnny O’Bryant, and 2016 2nd-round pick
— Trade with Phoenix: Received Mirza Teletovic and 2017 1st-round pick for O.J. Mayo
— Trade with Boston: Received five 2016 2nd-round picks for 2017 1st-round pick and 2018 2nd-round pick

We’ll see how this new roster fares in our first game…tomorrow night.

You trashed the roster and traded away J-Hook in the process :cry:

We played pretty well in our first game, dropping an 86-78 contest to the Knicks. We did a good job of rebounding and outside shooting, but we didn’t force a single turnover and allowed them too many chances inside, as they scored 50 points in the paint. Gerald Henderson was the game’s leading scorer with 23 points including 4 of 6 from three, but Carmelo Anthony scored 20 for the Knicks to win player of the game honors.

I won’t be attending our next three games as I focus on settling in to the new job and getting to know some of my co-workers, but I will keep you posted with score updates. Let’s see…

We beat the Wizards 66-65, with Gerald Henderson scoring 20 and Carl Landry posting 9 points and 11 rebounds.

We then dropped one to the Raptors 85-72. Patty Mills had an impressive 14 of 16 from the foul line and a total of 24 points.

We rebounded to beat the Nets 66-61, with the Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo, pitching in 17 points and 9 rebounds.

I’ll be attending our next game against the 76ers. With this team starting to build chemistry, I think we have a decent chance of being a lot better than we expected this season—and with nine draft picks as of right now, we certainly don’t need to tank to get a lottery pick.

I haven’t been on Twitter in a while. Let’s see what the fans are saying about me…

“You trashed the roster”…”You traded away my favorite player”…”You suck”…

Well, I think I made a bad move somewhere along the way. And it’s my job to try and right my wrongs, as hard as that may be.

Now let’s see…Charlotte’s GM is Waka Flocka Flame, and his phone number is 420-6969…wait, what? That can’t be right. Marvin must have messed with my stuff again.

Okay, here’s the real list. The Hornets’ GM is Rich Cho, and his number is 555-2628…

Let’s see what he thinks about
this proposal.

I hope your favorite player is who I think it is...If so the next update will be interesting ;)

I have 8 draft picks next year. Trust me, that roster's gonna be looking good in no time.

They have stockpiled a ton of young talent, not only Noel, Okafor, and Covington but guys like Saric and Embiid who haven't even played an NBA game yet...and they're just going to add more to that pile this year with even more high draft picks. Sure, the process isn't pretty, but the results are what matters, and when all of these players finally come together and build chemistry, they're going to be a dangerous team.

That's the problem. :lol:

They severely lack talent in their backcourt, and if it takes them 3 more years to assemble a college team there, the guys in the frontcourt they have now will be killing themselves to get out of Philadelphia, to get more money and play for a team that wins more than once a month.

It’s 1:45 A.M. and I still haven’t slept a wink… Ugh…

I can’t sleep when I feel like I’ve done something wrong.

I don’t know why Mr. Cho didn’t pick up when I called him earlier…

But I do know that I have to call him back.

I
have to get this deal done, no matter what.

Ring…

Ring…

“Hello?”

“Oh, uh, hi, Mr. Cho. This is—“

“I know who you are, Mr. Young. Now out with it, what do you want?”

“I, uh, I want John Henson.”

“John Henson? But—“

“I know, I know, I’m the one who traded him to you in the first place. But I realized my error and I’m ready to make everything right again.”

“Well, okay, I’ll see what I can do. Give me ten minutes and I’ll come back to you with an offer.”







“Okay, here’s my offer. I’ll give you Henson and Spencer Hawes for Mike Muscala and two second-round picks.”

Hmm…It’s an interesting proposal, but I don’t want to take Hawes because of his two-year contract…What would be a good counter-offer?

“How about this counter: Henson for Muscala and one second-rounder?”

“You’ve got a deal, Mr. Young. It’s been a pleasure.”

Maybe now I can finally get some sleep…

----------------------------------------

Today’s matchup features our 2-2 Bucks against the 1-2 76ers…

With Henson at the five and Landry at the four, we might look into running some high-low plays…







We shot 42 percent from three, scored 91 points, and outrebounded them by six—but we lost 107-91. A whopping 17 turnovers hurt us big-time, and we couldn’t stop them inside as they scored 60 points in the paint. Tony Wroten led Philadelphia with 24 points and 7 assists. Gerald Henderson led our team with 21 points, Cody Zeller chipped in a double-double including five offensive rebounds, and all thirteen guys scored again, but we need to do a better job of taking care of the ball and defending without fouling. They scored 24 points from the line and both Henson and Mills fouled out in the third quarter. I think we played our best when Coach Kidd sat the starters in the fourth and let the reserves play.

I won’t attend another game until the Cavaliers game on the 14th, but I’ll keep you updated with the scores and stuff…

We beat the Knicks by three and the Nets by two, but lost to the Celtics and Nuggets. Antetokounmpo and Henson played well, but I think we’re going to need to shake up the lineup.

I got grilled by the press over my treatment of Jabari Parker; it seems everyone thinks he should be a starter, and after seeing Carl Landry struggle some of late, I think I agree. Patty Mills hasn’t been very efficient either, so I’m going to talk to Jason about maybe switching up the lineup.

He agreed and decided to put Parker and Greivis Vasquez in the lineup in place of Mills and Landry. Of course, they’ll still have big roles off the bench and may even work their way back into the starting five.

We’re also dealing with some injuries, as Rashad Vaughn is out a couple weeks with a shoulder injury of some sort. He says that he feels worse than the time he tried to go vegan. Walter Tavares, our “project” big man, will take his spot on the active roster as our 13th man until Vaughn is ready to come back.

The Cavaliers are 6-3 coming into this game, with Kyrie Irving their leading scorer, Kevin Love their leading rebounder, and LeBron James leading in assists. They’re a very well-rounded team and we’ll have to be in top form to beat them.

“…Chief?”

M-Marvin?

“Chief, get up!”

Huh? Oh…

I shouldn’t have stayed out so late last night…

I don’t even think I got home ’til one in the morning…


“Chief, there’s a fire!”

Whaaaaaaaat?!? A fire? I better get up…

“Chief, look at the TV! There’s a fire at the Ducks!”

The Ducks?!?!? No…It can’t be…

Ben…I don’t know where you are, but I hope you’re okay.

And Pokintem…Wait, no, Patty…I hope you’re okay too.


“The popular local hot-dog joint had not yet opened its doors when a fire suddenly started. Police have not yet determined if there was any foul play, but it does not appear that anyone was at the shop when the fire started to blaze.”

Phew…

Foul play, though…I wonder who would have done such a thing? The Ducks only competition is…

“…Ahahahaha…”

What was that?!?

Oh…it came from the TV…

They’re showing a commercial for Black Dog. I guess if I want a hot dog, I’m going to have to find one of their locations. I would imagine the Ducks stand at the arena will be closed down during the investigation.
