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.

Cheater, I hope you go undrafted and don't get picked up.

I have a big point who plays in the post and midrange. I went like 11th because I had 29 in the showcase. but next time? Ugly statline. ugly. Gotta go the Boozer route and get 50 million after year 2.

I think there might be a few more. The quality is still pretty bad.

The creating a player system is actually something that still bothers me. Picking a college sucks(no love for canada) and is hard to navigate, and things like tattoos, hair, and facial structure are bad. i wish tattoos had a name like "Dolphin" rather than "Tattoo 50"

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'm also a 3 point specialist SF. Going for Larry Bird mode. Got drafted 7th by Wizards. Gonna make a SG now and see how I like it. Athletic or slashing. Wanna try all styles and positions.

What was everyone's teammate grade for the showcase? Just wondering how much that factors into one's draft position.

Leaning towards the Kobe model.
An atheltic 2 with post up and shooting. Cant see it being stopped, especially if I get contained on the drive I can just tap Y, take a post dribble and shoot a fadeaway.

All adds up. To get picked 7th by a team that didn't interview me... I dropped 31, 6, 3, 2 and 2 and got an A +.

I'm so addicted to My Player that I haven't tried any other modes! So my review of game will be delayed 1-2 weeks guys. I now made an athletic SF and love it! I had 3 vicious dunks on defenders in the rookie showcase. As a 3 point specialist it's easier to score.. but not as fun. Plus as a specialist you're SO slow and unathletic. Easier to get by without a shot than without any physical tools.

Made a 6'8" SF, with a point forward playing style, going for the Scottie Pippen build.

Had 10 pts, 9 boards, 8 assists in the rookie showcase, although I swear I could've had at least 12 assists if that big white guy on your team didn't miss so many layups

First interview was Milwaukee, and there's no way I wanna play with a chucker like Jennings so I was pretty much a total dick to them.

Second interview was Charlotte, no way I wanted to play for them either when their best player is probably Maggette so I was a dick to them too.

Third interview was Golden State, which would be a great place to play, so instead of being a dick to the GM I started kissing up to him, needless to say I now play for the Warriors
