Is Coaching Your Thing?

So, you think you can do a better job than Gregg Popovich or Phil Jackson or Red Auerbach? Here is your chance to find out for sure.

Or not.

You can make every in-game decision a real coach has to make, right up to deciding how closely to guard each player. This is not easy, especially if you don't have good players, because The Cactus League Professional Basketball AutoCoach has been fine tuned for over 25 years and knows how to get the most out of his players. You could experience the joy of winning a Championship and the frustration of your team not being able to "buy a basket" down the stretch. You'll find playing the Heat or the Spurs on the road will be as much of a challenge as the real coaches do. But, don't worry. You can never be fired! Are you up to the challenge?

Or, Put Your Feet Up & Watch The Action Unfold

If you don't want to coach, or you want to take the night off, you can just take in the action. When playing a schedule you can quickly decide which games you want played automatically (in just a few seconds) and which games you want to coach or watch. Want to play the Thunder through their season? You can do it with just a couple of mouse clicks. All of the games not involving the Thunder will be played automatically and all their statistics and records will be maintained automatically. Then, when a Thunder game comes up you can take charge.

You must be thinking that a game this detailed much be very complicated and difficult to learn.

It isn't.

Maybe it is a rare play that they've never seen or a new stat they can add to a report in the Statistics Module.

You can watch your team perform under the AutoCoach's direction.
