I actually think 12 minutes gives the most realistic stats. I've been playing 12mins in my Association and the stats are on point. The substitutions works better with 12mins also. But I think 12mins is too long for an online game.

You shot 44 threes. How could you expect to have a good jump-shooting game? :confused:

check my stats online i usually make a lot. But the lag was crazy. Your defense sucks and the sliders are made to make the way you play easier. It turns players with average midrange games into great shooters. Im surprised i didnt score 150, i couldnt make anything at all(lag).

I actually took it easy on you because i felt no need to blow you out be 50, so i started shooting 3's just to get used to shooting with the players i picked. You defense sucks, and you decided to leave shooters open all game so i took open shots but the release was different because of lag. But im not complaining I still won by 20, i

It's not about making them or not. 44 threes is pretty ridiculous IMO...

It's kinda hard to guard folks who just drive and dunk all day. Or throw full length passes off made baskets. I guess my D does suck against your type of play (60 of your 90-something pts in the paint lol)

The sliders are made to give realistic stats/percentages. I try to play realistically but I dunno that the sliders make it "easier"

The default for mid-range shots on superstar is 62. The sliders are set at 64...

unfortunately since I had to be at a wedding, my team got auto-drafted.. plus I had the last pick which didn't help.. oh well

Here's my team..

starters:

steve nash
chris paul
wally szerbiack
antoine walker
troy murphy

bench:

rafer alston
bonzi wells
jamal crawford
kenyon martin
kurt thomas
patrick obrynt
adrian griffin

i've put chris paul on the trading block (although i'm interested to see how having 2 good pointgaurds turns out) but I need a good big man..

on the 2k boards i'm offering chris paul for rasheed, so phoenix.. let me know

or if anyone else wants paul for a big man.. holla at me

Gee thanks :)

the way you picked you teams and the defense you played called for me to go to the basket. You played 3-2 with soft big men in the middle who cannot deter any of my slashers. Why take it easy on you and shoot jumpers when i can go to the basket. Its not my fault you have Boris Diaw at 4 and Kristic at the 5. Who wouldnt go to the basket when you have no shot blockers at all.

As for the 3's I was frustruated and just trying to get a feel for the players I picked. I havent used Bibby that much and was trying get his and JRich's jumper going. I usually dont use Kobe and was trying to get a feel for his shot. The only teams i really play with so far are the Suns, Rockets and 76ers.

Kobe can be stopped but you didnt even try, no double not once all game. I thought you would have at least tried something but you refused. My objective was to get you to either go man, box and 1 or 2-3 or double him. You just stayed in 3-2 and i took advantage of it.

PS: get a better connection, that was the slowest game i ever played(Im on a T3)

Guys, keep in mind that there are 16 teams in the league and only 16 games in the season. If you don't see eye to eye, just remind yourself that you probably won't have to play each other again until the playoffs anyway, and maybe not even then. If you think the other player is a moron, let it be the rest of the league's problem, since you already got your game against them out of the way.

Also, please remember, that we aren't just competitors here... we're family. That's the kind of bond that exists between members of the ISH league.
