I'm tempted to start a My Player and make Royce White. I can't wait to do a Be a Legend (or whatever the **** its called on 2k) and play with him.

Yeah the pc trolls hard, anyone else notice in the objectives relating to staying under a certain amount of fouls you get called for bs fouls you don't even commit? I hate those fouls called when you haven't even tried a steal or block

Had a 52-13-12 game against the Pacers in a loss, and a 50-14-13 game in a win against the Celtics. I've about learned that if I don't score 40+ we aren't going to win. I'm averaging 33-6-6 (probably 40-9-9 my last 10-12 games) and we're 19-11. My largest margin of victory, though, was a 15 point win over the Cavs. I think I've only had two or three other games that I won by double figures.

I've tried everything I can think of to try and win games more comfortably. I'll spend long stretches of quarters working to facilitate and involve my teammates and, instead of shooting 30+ times and going for 40-50 points. You'd think if a game where I get 50-52 points and 12-14 assists, we'd win by 20+ since that means, at the very least, I alone account for 75-80 points, but most games Monroe is the only other player scoring double figures. Villanueva shoots too many threes, Knight won't shoot his open threes and takes too many heavily contested layups, and everyone else sucks.

You are playing with the Pistons, it's not like they are the Spurs. Still I understand what are you coming from. Despite claims by the staff of 2k, players don't play the way they do in real life.

I played for the Nuggets, but I wasn't needed to score 10+ ppg (5 min quarters) in order to win.

Think I might request a trade to a different shitty team like the Kings or Bobcats because I hate Utah. I'd love the team if I could request that Devin Harris gets dealt lol.

What's your player's overall up to? I had a stretch of two of triple-doubles in four games and nearly had a third in that stretch. I've got my player's 3PT rating up to 90, consistency up to 89, and mid-range at 90. Once I get rolling it's game over for our opponent.

Last five games
40 min, 52 pts, 13 reb, 12 ast, 3 stl, 21/39 FG, 3/6 3P, 7/11 FT

37 min, 39 pts, 9 reb, 8 ast, 1 block, 17/32 FG, 0/3 3P, 5/6 FT

39 min, 50 pts, 13 reb, 14 ast, 1 stl, 20/38 FG, 2/6 3P, 8/8 FT

40 min, 55 pts, 9 reb, 9 ast, 3 stl,20/41 FG, 2/5 3P, 13/14 FT

34 min, 37 pts, 7 reb, 11 ast, 5 stl, 3 blk, 15/30 FG, 2/5 3P, 5/5 T

37 min, 54 pts, 9 reb, 6 ast, 6 stl, 1 blk, 20/36 FG, 10/17 3P, 4/4 FT

Average: 37.8 mpg, 47.8 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 10.0 apg, 3.0 spg, 0.8 bpg, .520/.452/.850

Got the "Make 4 3PTers" objective last game. I started off 2/2, then went 1 for my next 5, then caught fire, finishing 7/11 from three. I think I made something like 4-5 in a row at the end of the third quarter and to start the fourth quarter to turn a semi-close game into a 25 point blowout.

My overall is just at 72. I haven't touched the abilities, just the attributes. I have 95 3pt rating then +4 from shoes. I had to max pass and ball security to lessen turnovers. Also maxed out lay up and shoot in traffic.

Yeah, I had saved up points for two weeks and had like 25,000 to dump into things, so I upped 3PT from 85 to 90, consistency from 84-89, shoot in traffic to mid-80s, and dunk from like 25 (I made him a scoring SG) to 45. It took me 31 games, but my 6'7" SG finally got his first career dunk. So stupid how your dunk rating starts so low if you make your guy a scoring guard, even if he's 6'7".

I hadn't thought about ball security and pass lately but that's obviously what I should do next. I've had 5-8 turnovers in each of my last 7 or 8 games. Think I had something like 12 turnovers in a game at some point in there. Went from averaging a little less than 3 TOs per game to almost 5 TOs per game.

I'd be at 19 in a row of 30+ but I accidentally chose "Play Next Key Game" instead of "Play Next Game" once and it simmed and auto-saved an 18 point 6/17 and 22 point 7/20 game.

Had 34 and 36 the two games before that and I've scored 30+ in my last 15. I guess it was a good thing I only had two regular games before my next key game and not like 7 or 8. I know you can stop the sim but I didn't catch it quick enough before it simmed the two regular games.

Scoring becomes a piece of cake once you get your three point rating and consistency up high enough. I scored 53 through three quarters by going 10/16 from three. We were up 22 after three so I got put on the bench until there was only about 5:00 left in the game but Atlanta had cut the lead to 6. I finished with 63 points and went 12/21 from three. Missed a three at the buzzer that would've broken the NBA record for made threes and given me 66.

I've been in Cali for the last week for a wedding, and man, do I miss playing MP.

One thing that annoys me recently though is the fact that my team is so passive on breaks. I'll pass it to them under the basket and unless it's to Paul George, nothing's happening.
