Default NBA WIF Sim Idea

Been off the forum for a little bit. Thinking of putting together a sim league for something like another professional basketball league coming in during the lockout back at the beginning of the decade. The IHBA is formed, and 16 of the NBA's own teams leave the NBA to come to our brand.

Unlikely, but let's run with it for basketball reasons. So I picked 16 teams I thought would leave to come for us, and I'm going to be using those 16 teams to sim with. Those teams are:

Charlotte Hornets
Cleveland Cavaliers
Denver Nuggets
Detroit Pistons
Golden State Warriors
Indiana Pacers
Los Angeles Clippers
Sacramento Kings
Milwaukee Bucks
New York Knicks
Orlando Magic
Philadelphia 76ers
Portland Trail Blazers
Seattle SuperSonics
Toronto Raptors
Vancouver Grizzlies

Timmy D for MVP
Boston C's

Now, using the players off their 00-01 roster (Wanna be a season ahead so we can catch that rookie class in here) we can do an expansion/fantasy draft with these 16 teams using all players from the 00-01 season, and end up simming it like a real season. Maybe just a 50 game season or something.

I'm going to be simming it on whatifsports which is actually pretty accurate from what I've seen in my past experiences. What whatifsports does is sim's based on that players performance any given year, so if a player had a good year shooting in 04 and a bad year in 05, same thing's probably going to happen here. Each game is individually simmed and has a detailed play-by-play that can be seen.

I'm not quite sure what to do about free agency and trades and stuff, but we'll get to that bridge when we cross it. I was wondering, what do you guys think? Would anyone want to draft a team and sim it? I would keep stats and all that, got the whole decade of players to work with. I won't be simming every day, it will be a laid back type of thing, every second day or so. Definitely nothing serious, just an idea I had in my head.

I was thinking up to 16 players, and then we'd pull off our expansion draft, remember you'd be drafting based on how their career went from 00-01 on.

Here's a list of the players we would be drafting (checked it out, enough for 12-13 man rosters):
