NBA Live 2003 Roster Update FAQ Version 1.1 By: DOAsaturn (email@example.com) Preseason Version 1.0 (Oct 11, 2002) Welcome to the Roster Update FAQ for NBA Live 2003. I am using the PS2 version of the game, but this should also work with the GC/Xbox versions as well. This is meant as a tool for those who don't have the means to get roster updates through the internet, and want to do them theirself without the hassle of all the research (that's where I come in :) Please, don't hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if there are any questions, concerns, corrections, additions, or suggestions you would like to make. With that, let's get into the FAQ. Preseason Version 1.1 (Oct 16, 2002) A few additions/corrections were made to the Cavs, Raptors, and Wizards rosters today. The Varda release for the Wizards is meant to make room for Charles Oakley. Varda most likely will not make the roster, so I figured that would be a safe move. Jumaine Jones and Hakeem Olajuwon (still hasn't retired I guess) are still on their respective teams and need to be resigned (sorry for the inconvenience). So, Vonteego Cummings will have to wait until the Cavs release someone before I can officially add him back on the roster. I've promised more created players and stats for 1.2, but I won't do a complete list until the 15-man rosters are resolved. I also plan to add starting lineups (or perhaps complete depth charts, once again when 15-man rosters are finalized) soon. Another section being worked on is a player edit section which will compile player corrections that are needed in the game (like #, height, weight, shoe types, etc...). Of course, I can always use your help and I thank everyone who has e-mailed me so far. I can try to do this all by myself, but it is easier with your help! Sec. 1 - Players to Release: These are the players you must release from their respective teams from the original default rosters in the game. Do all of these releases first, before signing players (with Detroit, who needs 6 players released, you may have to wait until you sign a couple players to their team first. Use the same Version/Date on the release/signing lists so you don't end up having to backtrack. For now, only 1 version is available, but there will be more revisions made. Version 1.0 (Oct 11, 2002) ----------------------------------- Atlanta - (none) Boston - Erick Strickland Chicago - Travis Best, Charles Oakley Cleveland - Lamond Murray, Jumaine Jones Dallas - ZhiZhi Wang, Johnny Newman Denver - Mark Jackson, Don Reid, Menk Bateer Detroit - Mikki Moore, Jerry Stackhouse, Ratko Varda, Brian Cardinal, Dana Barros, Rodney White Golden State - Mookie Blaylock, Dean Garrett, Cedric Henderson Houston - Dan Langhi, Walt Williams Indiana - Carlos Rogers, Kevin Ollie LA Clippers - Doug Overton LA Lakers - (none) Memphis - Rodney Buford Miami - Kendall Gill, Jimmy Jackson Milwaukee - Darvin Ham, Rafer Alston, Greg Anthony, Mike Wilks Minnesota - Will Avery, Robert Pack New Jersey - (none) New Orleans - (none) New York - Larry Robinson, Felton Spencer Orlando - Jaren Jackson Philadelphia - Alvin Jones Phoenix - Milt Palacio, Joe Crispin Portland - (none) Sacramento - Chucky Brown San Antonio - Cherokee Parks Seattle - Randy Livingston, Art Long Toronto - Michael Stewart, Hakeem Olajuwon, Dell Curry Utah - Rusty Larue, Quincy Lewis, John Starks Washington - Richard Hamilton, Hubert Davis, Popeye Jones Version 1.1 (Oct 16, 2002) ----------------------------------- Cleveland - Jeff Trepagnier, Vonteego Cummings+ Washington - Ratko Varda+ +-player still on roster, but room was needed for a more important signing Sec. 2 - Players to Sign Version 1.0 (Oct 11, 2002) ----------------------------------- Atlanta - Darvin Ham Boston - (none) Chicago - Doug Overton, Rick Brunson Cleveland - Vonteego Cummings, Milt Palacio, Michael Stewart, Anthony Johnson* Dallas - Popeye Jones Denver - Rodney White Detroit - Don Reid, Richard Hamilton, Hubert Davis Golden State - Rafer Alston Houston - Tierre Brown Indiana - Greg Foster, Erick Strickland LA Clippers - ZhiZhi Wang, Cherokee Parks LA Lakers - (none) Memphis - (none) Miami - Eddie House, Travis Best Milwaukee - Cedric Henderson, Kevin Ollie Minnesota - Randy Livingston, Kendall Gill New Jersey - (none) New Orleans - (none) New York - Mark Pope Orlando - Shawn Kemp, Obinna Ekezie Philadelphia - Art Long Phoenix - Dan Langhi Portland - Chris Dudley Sacramento - (none) San Antonio - Menk Bateer, Mikki Moore* Seattle - (none) Toronto - Lamond Murray, Jelani McCoy Utah - Mark Jackson Washington - Jerry Stackhouse, Bryon Russell, Ratko Varda, Brian Cardinal* Version 1.1 (Oct 16, 2002) ----------------------------------- Cleveland - Anthony Johnson, Jumaine Jones Toronto - Hakeem Olajuwon Washington - Charles Oakley * - players with a * by their name cannot fit on the team since the roster is full. Preseason rosters will have this problem. As players are released more frequently, room will open up for these players as well as CAPs. Sec. 3 - Players to Create (CAPs) -This section will bring vital stats of all the CAPs needed in the game, as well as (hopefully) some ratings. With all the players on the preseason rosters missing in this game, it would be a daunting (and stupid) task to list them all here. Many rosters in the preseason 18-20 players, and it is impossible to predict who will be the few who will make the team. So instead of listing all the CAPs, or all the CAPs I predict will make it, I will just list the absolute guarantees, until we know who made the regular season rosters.
