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.
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.
