Look at it this way. Even if you play 12 minute quarters the first 10-15 games or so you won't be getting a lot of minutes if it's anything like 2K12 and 2K11. It usually takes me 15-20 games just to get to where I'm playing 25 minutes a game. By the time you're playing 30+ minutes per game, you've "only" got 60ish games or so left in the season.
I don't know. Anyway, I'm just a few minutes into the Rookie Showcase game and you get +2 VC for things like a made bucket, assists, rebounds, etc. which I'm guessing you don't get if you sim the game, so it's definitely worth playing the games.
