Big Rings: Man Down (ep.3) #2K16

ep. 2 'Live From The Baseline'

As of November 29th, 2017, Kevin Durant has been placed on IR. This comes after the game we played against the Clippers in the closing seconds. As we (the Hype Killers) went on to win, 84-74. This is a big blow to the team as we were 12 and 2 moving strong into the season. We hope to have him back by the All-Star break. In the meantime this is the chance for other players to step up. We need D.Rose to lead this team as we have the biggest star in the league out. We will be moving Larry Sanders up into the starting lineup.

(I sim all games btw)

The first game out and we played great without Kevin Durant. The ball was moving and all the players stepped up against a great Timber Wolves team. We had some high hopes, still do. The games are just not going the way they need to be. First we have Roy Hilbert getting hurt and Nicolas Batum just forgot how to play basketball. I don't know what it is. He was to be the secret weapon on the team. I more then likely won't be bringing him back if his failure keeps up. As of right now, he is wasting space and we can get a younger players into the rotation. 

 Along with Batum being up this year, we have to see about Larry Sanders, Hibbert and Ilyasova. I haven't made my mind up about all four but as of right now, Larry will be back in the Sanquon family if he wants too. 

As many of you know, Larry Stepped away from the game around the same time I did. He just didn't feel it anymore. 

 It was announced on February 21, 2015, following his second suspension for marijuana use, that the Bucks were buying out Sanders' contract. On February 25, a video of Sanders was released where he explained that he entered into a program at Rogers Memorial Hospital for anxiety, depression and mood disorders. He claims that the program led him to realize "what's important, and where I would want to devote my time and energy" and that ultimately he realized that "for [basketball] to be consuming so much of my life and time right now ... it's not there for me. It's not that worth it." He did however claim to still love the game and that "if I get to a point where I feel I'm capable of playing basketball again, then I will."

When I came back. I had to bring him along with me. So he is not fully in shape as far as basketball goes but he is getting there. 

 The problem with the other three is that they have no reason for the way they have been failing. They haven't took any breaks from the game. Hibbert is not living up to what he can be. He should be a 10 and 10 player each night. 

 KD Returns To The Starting Lineup. 

We were hoping to have Kevin Durant back after the All-Star break and work him back into the starting lineup. We got a pretty big surprise today as the doctor has cleared K.D. to practice. He's not 100% but should be soon. 

Remember that basketball shape I said that Larry wasn't in? Looks like I will happily be eating my words. His play over the stretch has earned him a starting spot Pete Bell announced today. 

"Larry Sanders will be stepping into the starting power forward position as Kevin Durant has been placed off IR today. We're happy to have him back and we know he's happy to be back. Moving Larry into the PF will put Durant back at his natural position at SF. Batum will now bring energy from the 6th man spot. We will be working this out during the All-Star break and will be getting this team back on track as soon as possible.  We started hot got cold and now it's time to heat up. We have the playoffs to make" - Pete Bell. 

 We also got some big news from the league office today. We have TWO ALL STARS. Be sure to read my next report to find out the three. Who do you think it is? Leave your guess in the comments.
