Best Basketball Management Game?
 
What's the best NBA game currently available if I want to spend a lot of time being a mock-GM? I'm looking for an NBA version of those Championship Manager games for soccer/football fanatics. I want good season simulations, drafts, trading, free agency, etc.

Total Pro Basketball 2005. This is what was used to sim matches in a Sim League that I used to be in. Very detailed game which even includes D-League. You have to download a patch to get the real players, but its easy to find as far as I know and very easy to install.

I think there is a more up to date and better management game called DDS: Basketball though.

Cool. I was looking for something like this too. I liked the earlier version of Championship Manager. More "playable". The excessive detail takes away from the fun of the game - but thats just me.

Anyway,
total pro basketball, you think its worth the $35 to buy?

Just felt that this needed to be bumped.

Fast Break Basketball is another legit one.

It's nice and simple, has some bugs and glitches, but that's because it was made in 04/05 I believe. I can find the crack for it so you can unlock it w/o paying

I've played most of them and you can't go past Fast Break Basketball but just don't expect anything close to the game that the CM/FM series is.

Sadly there just ins't a basketball game that is even really close to those, the best is probably the college ones(there are 3 that are good) but if you are after an NBA one you will have a hard time finding one.

Hockey has Eastside Hockey and baseball has Out of the Park, which are both on the same level as FM(not as good, but close) but there just isn't anything for basketball and the only thing close for football(Front Office Football) isn't as accessible as FM is, it's every bit as detailed but it is almost too buried in the details.

Any of those College games for free? Or have cracks? I'm looking for a college one, but only one I find for free is FastBreak's college version, which I disliked bigtime.

Eh, I like TPB, but it gets too complicated and annoying. FBB is the way to go if you want something to actually enjoy.

Is FBB the real NBA rosters or fake players? I don't mind too much either way but if you could find a crack that would be great.

I found one called World Basketball Manager 2008 and apparently you can download a patch for all the real names and team names.

Since FBB was last made back in 04, it's the rosters of that year, but you can find updated rosters and import them to your game. Just check sim leagues if you can.

Is it free?

If you can download it off of ares or limewire successfully, then yeah. But I haven't had any luck getting it yet. On the game's website it says that it costs 20 euros, which is quite cheap.

Just foun an online game which seems to be really good. It's free and you have complete control over the team. You sort out the training, the money expenses, how and where the players play on the court, you also decide the lineup for each game and quarter. It seems pretty good.

Just registering for it now. Something to pass the time away I guess :) Hopefully it will be interesting. Thanks man.

Oh great, another one of these 'wait for the administrator to approve you' sites. Took me nearly 2 weeks to be accepted here on ISH. Hopefully it won't take that long.
