Basketball Rating Guide

Stratometrics is releasing its latest basketball rating guide for the 2014-15 season. The rating guide does all the math for you so you do not have to. It offers shot columns calculations for outside, penetration, inside and fastbreak columns and includes the total number of foul chances in each category. It offers halfcourt and passing column points-per-pass values to help compare one passer from another.  Other important ratings are included in the rating guide to give you a quick guide to each player in the 2014-15 card set. To learn more about the rating guide, take a look at the following link:

Total Card Values

The Total Card Values are now available for the 2014-15 season through Stratometrics. If you are looking for some subjective analysis to compare one card to another, than take a look at the Total Card Values. Each TCV file ranks each position from one on down by providing a TCV for each player. Z-scores are also provided to compare across positions since certain ratings are used differently from one position to another. Whether you are looking to better compete in your draft league or want to learn the values of different players in your solo projects, the TCV’s will give you a better understanding of Strat-O-Matic Basketball. For more information, take a look at the following link:

Retro70 Openings

We are looking to fill a few teams in the Great Commission Retro Basketball Associaion (Retro70) for the 1973-74 season. We use both the NBA and ABA rosters in our 22-team league. New coaches will draft in dispersal draft from the below pool. The Retro70 allows 8-keepers before our rookie/free agent draft which allows for some deeper than your typical rookie drafts. Have an 82-game season over 5 blocks plus playoffs where you play your 41 home games and create 41 road gameplans. Netplay is optional in regular season and most of the playoffs except the finals and game 7′s (3′s in 3-game series, 5′s in 5-game), netplay can be waived if both parties agree. We use a games missed list before the schedule is created, have 110% player minutes and do not use a Use Them Or Loose Them rule since we only allow 8-keepers. Developing a league website for the league: Send me an email if you are interested. (support at somhoops dot com).
