Boston Revolution
« on: July 08, 2018, 10:06:32 PM »
Boston Revolution

Owner: Bartholomew Revere
Team Assistant: Patty Saint



Team History:
Bartholomew Revere shares the same bloodline as the famous Paul Revere and decided to capitalize on the family name by creating the Revere Brewing Company.  The alcoholic beverage has quickly risen the ranks of the favorite beers that Americans drink. Born and raised in Boston, Mr. Revere is a diehard Boston sports fan and he did not hesitate when the opportunity presented itself for him to own a professional basketball team.  Unfortunately, in the first three seasons the Boston Revolution have not had a winning season which does not sit well with Mr. Revere.  He is ready for his team to be a true contender.

Season 1: 21-21
Season 2: 21-21
Season 3: 19-23

I've built a well known beer company from scratch.  I've built this basketball team from scratch.  Now I want this team to match the success of my beer company.  Somebody help me do that!

I have found the person that is going to bring the Revolution to prominence.  I am pleased to announce Digger as the first GM of the Boston Revolution.

Thank you, Patty. I look forward to working with you.

Let's talk to Coach Jones.

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

Coach, this is Digger, the new GM here in Boston. It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm trying to familiarize myself with the roster before free agency and the draft, so I'd like to hear your take on our players under contract...

GM Digger, it's nice to meet you as well.  As it relates to our team, I think the guys we have under contract give us a solid foundation to start with. Here is my assessment of each individual player:

Alex Ray is competitive and a good decision maker.  He's mostly effective with the ball in his hands, however he tends to dominate the ball at times which can stifle the offense a bit.  He is pretty good at getting steals, but can become lax on the defensive end if he is not totally in the game.  He is a big time scorer, averaged 31.8 ppg last season, and is known to have huge scoring games.  He is a 3-time All-Star and was the league MVP two seasons ago.  He's expensive, but at least we have him locked up for the next three seasons and I will leave that stuff up to you.

Ross Crosby has great shooting ability and is a versatile defender who can guard multiple positions.  He will be nothing more than a role player in the pros, but a solid one.

Matt Billet is a tricky player to evaluate.  He can flat out shoot the ball when he gets hot.  He has great 3-point range, however he doesn't elevate all that well on his jumper and seems to be content on being a flat footed set shooter.  With that being said, he's got a good head on his shoulders, doesn't get frustrated easily and his a solid ball handler for a shooting guard.  He made the All-Rookie team in the first season and he's only 23 so he can continue to get better.

Reggie Dodson, another shooting guard, can damn near jump out the building.  He's got good outside shooting ability and is a decent passer.  He's an effective defender that stays in front of his man and limits drives.  Averages over a steal a game. He is a streaky shooter so he can be prone to shooting slumps.

Odie Denson has a sweet shooting stroke with a soft touch and high release on his shot.  What's even better is that his perimeter game should continue to get better with training.  He's a solid one-on-one player, but is sometimes too unselfish and can overpass.  He has a solid basketball IQ and seems to understand the game.  His body isn't fully developed so that should improve over the next couple of years.

Cleveland Wilcox is 3-time All-Star who can score.  He averaged 22.3 ppg and 7 rpg last season to go along with 3 assists per game.  Has great ball handling for a big and attacks the basket aggressively with a quick first step.  He's extremely athletic and has a great work ethic, but defensively he needs work.  He's more concerned with scoring.

Toro Fangio is a serviceable center, though a little short.  He lives in the post, 84% of his touches were in the post last season, and has a nice jump hook he likes to use.  He's a solid rebounder, but average on defense.  Averaged nearly 8 points and 8 boards a game last season.

Would you say shooting guard and center are the biggest places we should look to upgrade, along with adding depth to our bench?

I agree with that assessment, though if you upgrade at shooting guard and center, moving Billet and Fangio to the bench would provide us depth there.

Yes, that would give us more depth.

What are your thoughts on the coaching staff currently in place?

Good. I like the idea of having an established group that can stay together and keep consistency on the coaching front.

Do you feel you work better with young players or established veterans?

I work well with both to be honest.  Whoever is going to help us win, that's what I'm concerned with.  If it's a rookie, so be it.  If it's a ten year vet, so be it.

Good. That means we can go about building a winner however best works instead of a specific way...

Would it be possible to see our team's stats from last season?

Ok, let's get the ball rolling...

Let's talk to the representation for Jason Rogers.

Let's knock out a deal for Jason and get him here to Boston. I'm thinking 4 years, 8 million with 2 million PR...

Of course, Jason. I have no doubt you'll help us win some championships. Enjoy the rest of the offseason.

Let's talk to the representation for Maurice Cameron.

Let's knock out a deal for Maurice. How does 4 years, 3.5 million sound?

No, sir.  They understand that this is your first year with the organization and you don't know them yet.  So just let your imagination run wild.
