    NBA Live 2003 Roster Update FAQ Version 1.1
    By: DOAsaturn (sitesphil@yahoo.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 sitesphil@yahoo.com 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 rosters.
