Using the Stall option in 2002-03 games
from Ken Main:
I've been informally tracking how often I use the Stall. It averages approximately 5 cards a game, and almost always in late-game situations- or when a team is ahead by 12+ at any point after the 6:00 mark of the third quarter. This seems to get scores and shots/game/team very near their respective 95 and 81 '02-03 season averages, as Dave Loparco can attest from my box scores [from the 2002-03 co-op replay, on the Replay Forum].

Handling and Tracking Player Rest
from Vinny Mancini:
I’ve been using this idea to help keep track of when to bring resting players back into the game: Since the player cards are the same size and shape as the Play Card deck, whenever I remove a player from the game in order to rest, I count off how many cards (5 per minute) he will sit out, and simply insert his card into the Play Card deck at that point. Thus, whenever the Play Card deck reaches that player’s card, he will be ready to come back into the lineup.

from Tim Chandler:
Regarding usage (rest), I list all players on the score sheet. A player who does not start gets a 12 in the rest box. A starter has no entry at the game's start. When a sub enters the game, a dash and the minute of entry are added after the zero. Thus, if a sub enters in the ninth minute, his entry is "12-9", indicating that he was resting from minute 12 until minute 9: A total of three minutes.

When the starter leaves the game at minute 9, his entry is 9, and if he does not come back in during the quarter, a dash and a zero will be added to show that he rested from minute 9 to minute 0, a total of 9 minutes.

If the sub left the game after three minutes then his next entry would be 6-0. His total rest would then equal 9 minutes [(12-9)+(6-0)=9]. Since we are concerned with rest minutes rather than minutes played, the system seems to work pretty well. The rest box on the score sheet is adequate to make these recordings. Of course, when subs enter and re-enter in two consecutive quarters, it can become a little cluttered!

Capturing the Fatiguing Impact of Back-to-Back Games
from Greg Eno:

For season replays, if it's known that the game is the second of a back-to-back:
roll two dice:
2-6, 10-12- “BTB effect”.
If unknown, roll two dice: 2-6, 10-12– this is a back-to-back game...then roll again for “BTB effect” as above.
The “BTB effect” will increase the players’ Rest ratings, as follows:
Rest 1 = Rest 3
Rest 3 = Rest 6
Rest 6 = Rest 9
Rest 9 = Rest 12
This simulates the need to give extra rest to players, due to the rigors of a back-to-back game. It forces coaches to be even more cognizant of rest, as they would be in the actual NBA.

Double-Teaming Rules
from Greg Eno:
This one is very simple: Call for the double team (defensive players should consist of one guard and one non-guard) before flipping next Play Card. If a 2? occurs on the double-teamed player’s card, roll one die: 1-4- missed shot; 5-6- basket. Consequently, if the "left open" man rolls a 2?,
roll one die: 1-4- basket; 5-6- missed shot....simple, yet effective. The double teaming players are assumed to be two-timing the targeted player until the next change of possession, or missed FGA.

Enhanced Home Court Advantage
from Greg Eno:
Use the following chart to increase the Home Court Advantage…

INDEX     IGNORE         IGNORE         ADD TO 3PA*
             4 Fouls         3 TO's                  +3
             3 Fouls          2 TO's                  +2
             2 Fouls          1 TO                    +1
             1 Foul
—You may ignore any foul, as long as it's not in the last two minutes of the game, and it's not a 2F1 foul.
—You may only ignore TO's, not steals.
—You must call for an addition to a 3PA before rolling the dice for the shot; you may only do this once per game, and not in the last two minutes)

Tracking Player Stats by Quarters
from Mark Dobrow:
Here’s a simple trick for keeping quarter-by-quarter stats for each player when using the Replay scoresheet: I use four different colored pens (one for each quarter) which lets me track performance-by-quarter automatically.

Limiting Fouls (And Potential Foul-outs) on Low-Foul Players (Wilt!)
from Kurt Conlan:
Here’s my proposed modification of the foul procedure for players who rarely foul...
For any player with a Column 6 Defense rating of 15 or better, change his opponent’s Column 6 results as follows:
F1 = F1?
F2 = F2*
I believe this will more accurately recreate results for players who seldom foul.

Suggested Rules for Players Playing Out of Position
from Brien Martin:

Use the following rules when, as a result of injury, fatigue, or ejection, you must play someone our of his normal position:
1) All ‘A’ and ‘P+’ results become ‘P’ results instead
2) The player uses his ‘B’ ratings on defense
3) Ignore any F1* and F2* results on his opponent’s Column 6...change to F1 and F2
4) All ? results against this player on his opponent’s Column 6 go to the benefit of his opponent
5) All ST? on the player’s Column 4 go to the benefit of his defender
6) Any missed FG results on the player’s Col 4 become TO results instead
7) Rebound and Assist ratings are reduced by five, to a minimum of zero

Optional Rest System
from Mark Dobrow
I came up with a less-than-scientific rest formula that I have worked into a VERY simple
Excel worksheet that I will attach here. The only necessary data to type in is name, games played and total minutes for that player. The worksheet, on the far right column, comes up with an "adjusted rest" factor PER HALF that all players must meet (I round to closest half-minute), but when events like injuries, foul trouble and ejections make that an impossible goal, I give any extra needed minutes to the 6-10 rotation guys first, then go to the BACK of the bench. As part of my formula, I worked in a little player bonus time for each half to compensate a bit for the special in-game events that will keep players off the court. So far, we are more than happy with the allocation of minutes, plus it leaves the application of the rest factors up to the gamer.

When playing face-to-face, Andrew and I will substitute as we wish, when we wish, with home team getting final match-up option, but each player must meet rest requirement per half. Once the requirements are met, "extra" needed minutes are allocated as mentioned above. When playing solo, I prefer to randomize rest times and simply use any player-grid rolls of 4-1, 4-2, 4-3, 4-4 and 4-5 to trigger rest for that player at the next dead ball. Rest period is generally 3:00, unless the player needs less rest to meet requirement for the half, or, player needs more. Example of the latter: 30 seconds to play in third quarter and Stromile Swift of Memphis (M&A Adjusted rest factor of 12.0) has played the entire quarter and rolls a 4-4 for a turnover and stoppage of play. In this case, rather than rest for 3:00, I will make note that he is eligible to return with 30 seconds left in the 4th quarter, just to alleviate any extra substitution breaks at dead balls beyond our regular "TV timeout" substitution stoppages at 9:00, 6:00 and 3:00 of the second and fourth quarters. Mike Glaze's brilliant Helper program makes tracking these times a snap and now that we have a routine, the down time takes less time now than when we were using shaded squares and had to worry about an early sub getting nailed by a shaded square immediately after replacing a departed starter.
