re: NBA 2K13 My Player Discussion Thread


Played in the rookie game. Goodness, I should have done a tutorial, but I didn't see one. Game started with me creating my player and then starting career. 12 pts, 2 rebs, 2asts, and 1 blk as a SG.

I'm guessing you went in the 15th-20th pick range?

PG is the easiest to win with because you'll get to the point where the offense runs through you and you're pretty much always going to touch the ball on every possession. It all depends on what you want to play, though. Preference is everything.

I have a 7ft center that I model around Tyson Chandler.

Play defense, set picks, grab rebounds, get blocks, pick and roll produces points. That's what I like though. I also have a 3pt specialist SG that got picked by the Wizards 3rd. Also fun but I'm not involved as much in the game on that player.

I average 20/10 with a block or 2 per game. Got picked by the Raptors.

Pistol Pete Maravich.


I'm averaging 26.7 points, 8.9 assists, 5.9 rebounds, 2.4 steals, 1.7 blocks.


After last season and taking the Hornets to semi-finals and losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder, I wasn't offered a contract to play in New Orleans again. I averaged 20-10-4 as a rookie. I had offers from Indiana, Toronto, Portland, Washington, Dallas, and Miami....I took my talents to South Beach.





At first Me, LBJ, DWade, and Bose weren't clicking very well. I would either go off for 40 points or I would drop 15 assists in a game. Never both.


Finally around the All-Star Break Chris Bosh starting losing minutes and things starting working. It's not even fair now. Beating the Pacers the 3 seed by 35 points last night.


We are 65-16 going into the playoffs.

On any turnover it's damn near an And 1 show.



MVP Race this year:
LBJ
Pistol Pete
Dwayne Wade


We were #1 all year in the following categories: PPG, Points Allowed, Assists, Shooting Percentage, and 3Pt %.

The only games we lost, I simmed them. Apparently the 76'ers have our #, lol.


I won MVP last night, 1st Team All NBA, and 2nd Team All Defensive Team.

I plan to win 2-3 championships with the Heat, then request a trade or sign with the Hornets again. Hopefully we can pick up Kobe Bryant as a veteran. I will single handedly revamp his career and win him a 6th NBA Championship.

re: NBA 2K13 My Player Discussion Thread


Been playing with my 7'2" faceup center since just around xmas. in my 6th season rated 98 now. i did play the shite out of blacktop and association and also bought 10,000 VC twice but used half of it on gear and clothes.

drafted by Celtics won titles in first two yrs but lost in East semis 3 yr. got the GM to trade for Gallinari at SF and it worked out well.

Tested FA and went to Golden State 3rd yr. The Warriors were a damn dumpster fire. they had steph curry and kemba walker in same backcourt and no one decent at PF. tried to get kemba traded for a decent PF (apparently they traded david Lee for walker originally) and they end up trading harrison barnes for theo robinson. robinson is good but barnes and curry were my two fave guys to play with.

we lost in west 2nd rd to Thunder who won their 2nd in a row title after i won with Celts first two yrs.

they get worse in the off season, draft terribly, the GM still doesn't trade one of their 3 guards for a decent SF this time and so i go prima donna and ask for a trade. they ask what teams i give them MIA, NOLA, and Brooklyn and they trade me to MIA for Lebron (which i knew they would do since i was a 96 overall at time).

anyway i played with chalmers, wade, kyle singler (who came over with me in trade), and jan vesley who is an 81 at this point. the bench sucked except for norris cole but we dominated and won another title. and i won MVP for first time (for season) won finals MVP all 3 times i was in it.

we're currently struggling at 9-11 with me playing only key games.

so...

Celts- NBA title-Finals MVP (all rookie 1st team)
Celts- NBA title-Finals MVP (all NBA 3rd team)
Celts- lost in eastern semis (all star selection) (all NBA 2nd team)
GS- lost in 2nd rd- (all star selection) all NBA 2nd team
GS-MIA- NBA title- (All star) (All NBA 1st team) (Finals MVP) (NBA MVP)
MIA- in progress (3rd of 4th yr on current contract)


one of the coolest things in the game is when you're in running for MVP and you go to FT line your home crowd chants "MVP MVP"



i built my guy to score. went all offense. very similar to dirk on offense i'm a good shooter, and am max on 3 pt. but i can drive too. not great in the post (back to basket). but am quick enough to get around slower guys to score. so i could be threat from outside and when guys came up i could drive to score. i figured that was easiest way to stay on court to build VC. after that i started building strength, reb, and defense.

my signature skills are finisher, spot up shooter, bruiser, clutch, and defensive anchor.

might test FA again at end of contract. we'll see. our team is 5 starters with no bench. that part sucks and deeper teams are beating us.

edit: when i guard kevin love and dwight howard, they both give me fits. but like i said i went offense. bynum and i have good battles.

re: NBA 2K13 My Player Discussion Thread


yeh the version of the Heat I play on has NOOOO bench at all. 34 year old Mike Miller, 33 year old Shane Battier, James Jones, Norris Cole, and Mario Chalmers....


that pretty much tells me I have the green light to shoot every play. I've tried getting Chalmers, Miller, and Battier involved but they won't shoot open jump shots because the AI is dumb. Unless it's a shot clock buzzer beater.

Ray Allen must've retired.

It's almost a pain to get up 20-30 points because I know i'm going to be forced to play extended minutes with that group instead of LBJ, Wade, Haslem, & Bosh.


I have a feeling we'll win the title with ease this year. I'll stick around another year to see if they dump Miller, Battier, and a few other scrubs hopefully for some decent younger, faster, more athletic players.


But my end goal is to retire GOAT with the Hornets. Hoping that young Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers have progressed quite a bit. Then I'll pick up aged Kobe and get this rolling.

Westbrook, Kyrie Irving, Deron Williams are my enemies. Just too damn fast.

I absolutely destroy CP3 tho.

I got drafted by Sacramento as a PG and that was a fricking disaster. We had a good thing going between Cousins, Evans, and I but Jimmer screws it all up when he comes in and chucks 3s nonstop. Never made the playoffs there and got traded to SA where they also signed Melo but we got bounced by the Thunder. Took free agency and signed with the Hornets and won a championship. This year we traded a backup center for Rudy Gay so it's Gordon, Gay, Davis and I as the star power.

yeah my team doesn't even have battier and miller. all young guys. and everyone newly drafted is a mid 50's rating. just trash. basically its me and a declining wade and chalmers and vesley who's like a 83.

i too want to end up with hornets. they've been a top 4 seed in west last two years but falter in playoffs.

I bumped rivers out of the rotation when I signed, but he was averaging around 17 ppg before I got there.

19th to the Magic.

Not a bad team to go to, but Big Baby went down for two weeks we're like 10-15. 10th in the East.


I'll probably create a power forward next or go for a long SF who can shoot the 3.

Also, did anyone bother with the facebook game? It apparently helps you earn VC...

there's also an iPhone and android app where you can earn up to 1k VC per day.

I played the shite out the NBA trivia on that app

dang. I'll have to get on that. No wonder I'm having so much trouble advancing. Only trying to get VC through the game itself.

Edit: What skills should I be levelings for SG? My defense is already very good (70+ on ball D and 79 steal).

Those are fun. I've got a 6'8 SF that I took a dive in the rookie showcase so I could go to a good team. Went like 28th to the Bulls. Was a GREAT idea.

Just won the title with the Mavericks with my new rookie PG. Got ROTY and Finals MVP. Averaged 35.7 pts, 11.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.9 steals a game in the playoffs. Averaged about 22 ppg and 9 assists during the regular season. Superstar difficulty. I ended the season rated 82.

I just had a really good, efficient game where I put at PG (instead of SG). Ended with 5 pts (2/4 FG and 1/1FT), 8 ast, and 2 steals. Both steals led to fast break points and I was able to get a 4th Q comeback win against Sacramento.

While I won't start a the 2, I pushed Nelson out of the starting spot at the 1.

What is your timing on the 3 pt shot. My touch always seems to come and go.
