NBA 2K12: My Player Mode
 
This thread is to discuss....you guessed it, the ever popular My Player mode.

Tell stories about your player, what team you've been drafted by, how you're playing etc.

Ask for help and advice here as well if needed.

Well... I'm a big Point Guard/3pt Specialist (they are also using me at Shooting Guard along side Kidd sometimes.) yeah that's right... Dallas drafted me and I'm stoked about it. I would love to dish many assists to Dirk.
That's what I want to do... be a knock-down shooter from the outside and also be an assist guy.. My (nickname)name is "Rain-Man.." I am about to play game 2. I am into this. I got a little bit into the MyPlayer last year (for the first time) but only I was My(Jordan)Player... Creating A Legend. I was MJ, not my own weak-sauce player that I have right now. I think I want to stick with it and get deep ..
(my player is looking like me too...(except for the 6ft7 200lbs part)

good luck with getting your Players going guys..

by the way.. the Jazz, Bucks, & Rockets interviewed me after the rookie game before the draft. I basically used the Y button for most questions..
whichever one was saying that I am not interested in their team. I didn't want to play for those teams and I told them so. They were disapointed..
I thought automatically I would go to one of those teams.... nah fella...
Mavericks took me with the 26th pick. :D (1st round, Mavs first pick in the draft
:cheers:

This game seems awesome so far. My PF just got drafted to the Pacers with their 15th pick. The interviews with potential draft teams was a very cool idea.

I've made myself each year of My Player thus far (6'3'' 170lbs point guard). However, I'm thinking of switching it up after I read someone's post about trying to create the next Shaq. What has been your experience in My Player mode using a big man? I've enjoyed using myself because the point guard saw the ball every single play. Is it rough in the beginning for the big fellas?

Dropped 25 in the game. Time for some interviews. Only got like a B rating, though.

6'7 SF named Boomer Bonner. Three point specialist. I'm going to focus on shooting, especially because I got drafted by the Warriors. Will work on defense as well. Pretty happy to get picked 11th. Although in my interviews I was kinda a douche to Charlotte(unintentionally).

I like how My Player has all this new cool stuff. Gameplay wise, theres still no credit for running a play perfectly, or getting back on defense quickly. Its not my favorite in the first place.

I have a question...
so I just played the first 5 games. since I'm coming of the bench I average like 8 or 10 minutes. Half the game only. so games go kinda quick. My question is in my player you are doing a whole career?? or just a season??
also if it is a career... do you guys play every game or use that option that says skip to a key game?? and if you do use that option do you just rack up a bunch of skill points automatically like if you never skipped ahead??or are you missing out on those points and experience?

Yea they have a good transition D. I think you have to get back and be in a defensive stance though not just run back. And if you are quick enough and make the ball handler slow down you get a "stopped fast break" too.

Career.

I skip but I played like 50-60 games a season last year.

They give you milestone points but I dont think you get the game to game skill points. You do get your check though which you can use to buy things.

They never actually gave me that.

Idea I just had...

Wouldnt it possibly be best to throw the rookie showcase game and play as badly as possible...in order to fall to the second round? I know the second round is done too since 2k mentioned the realism of having the deputy commishioner(Silver) doing that round like real life.

Second round picks dont have 4 year contracts. Play 2 years be a star then sign your big deal for more money while first rounders are stuck for at least 1 more and one after that possibly before the big money.

My next myplayer...im getting all zeros on my statline and fouling out while playing no D at all.

See if I get to the money faster.

Good idea but not a realistic my player experience. I would prefer to do it with more realism, throwing the rookie game isnt in my blood.
