Basketball 2.0 is a number generator disguised as a 1980's Mac game.
From the ReadMe file:
It all started on December 24th. One day after my last final (and my 5th all-nighter in 12 days), I came down with a huge sore throat and bronchitis. Seeing as I was laid up for Christmas, I set about trying to find ways to relieve the boredom. This program is the result of one such attempt.
In the beginning, it was very simple. All I wanted to do was create a quick program that would give me random numbers so that I could play a mini-NBA season on a piece of paper. This soon became VERY boring, so I started to add features to it. First I rated teams, then I put in names, and so on, until it grew into the elephant you now possess.
For those of you who are interested, the teams are rated from 1 (best) to 6 (worst). The ratings were taken from the winning percentages that appeared in my local paper on December 24th (being a diehard Celtics fan, it hurt me to have to give them a 4 rating). Obviously, better teams score more points. I also added 5 points to the home team's score to account for the extremely big home court advantage in the NBA (this effectively lowers a team's rating by 1 point). When I played a short (16 game) season, the team standings looked pretty close to what they actually are, except that the won-lost records were closer. Miami actually won 5 games (I knew I should have given them a rating all their own).
