NBA Live 2003 Roster Update FAQ Version 1.1
By: DOAsaturn ([email protected])

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 
[email protected] 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.

* - 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
