Ugh... 82 games is a shit ton. Other alternative is to play for a team like the Lakers with tons of rivals so I get at least 20 key games.

dude, with how quickly you are blowing through seasons and shit you will eventually play 82 games regardless

why not take your time and play every game ? its so ****ing fun.

i don't sim shit.

i play a game of mycareer, one game of online vs. mode, and then maybe some local multiplayer against a roommate.

don't get stressed. it's just a videogame. take it 1 game at a time to sharpen your skills.

it'll be more fun b/c you'll be getting the true experience

I'm still stacking up on VC so I could buy a suit for my real MyCareer and still have money to improve my abilities and buy accessories.

My 3 point specialist PG never misses a jumpshot(unless its off the dribble). Had 26/8 in the showcase, got drafted by the Warriors and getting 20+ points every time in about 12 minutes worth of PT. The handles are also sick on here, made Austin Rivers fall in the showcase game, too nasty. The Raptors wanted me, but I told them YOLO and I wanted to win games,

SG 3 Point Specialist got drafted at 12 by the Rockets. Got asked if I was comfortable playing at SF because Kevin Martin is their guy, and I thought I answered that I wasn't comfortable with it, but then my player said he'd adjust to it so he could play for the Rockets. Not what I wanted at all.

Nothing wrong with Houston, but I played for them a lot with some of my 2K12 players, wanted something new and fresh.

This isn't the player I'll continue with though seeing as the rosters will be updated on the weekend, this is just a trying the mode out kinda thing.

What's the best way to rack up VC outside of My Career? Does it have to be online games and My Team games or can you get them by playing Association an Quick Play, too?

Just went ahead and started one with a 3PT specialists SG. Thought this was interesting...in the Rookie Showcase I'm on the Elite Team and which is all UNC guys. I'm at SG, Marshall at PG, Barnes at SF, Henson at PF, and Zeller at C.

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.

Well.... I did up it to 8 minute quarters and the payoff has been great. I end up averaging 10-15 minutes actually played compared to 5 or 6 before. So I've been dropping some much better games. My last game for example was 23 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals vs the Lakers as a 6'4 scoring PG.

Just went for 28-6-5-1 on 12/18 FG and 4/6 3P in the Rookie Showcase game and we won by 20 points, and my teammate grade was still only a 'C'. Won my position battle by a comfortable margin, too.

Started a 6'10" back to the basket PF. Didn't have a great showcase (6 pts 9 rebounds?) but got drafted 14 to the Bucks. Not the worst case scenario but trying to beat out Ilysova won't be ideal.

Also, I seem to be using Skill Points, not VC? Anyone know why?

EDIT: Ah, apparently it doesn't count if you're not online. I'm on wired internet so I have to split the time using the cable on my laptop and 360.

So since I started playing every game not much has changed besides what commentators say. I just got traded to the Heat because I was on the Pistons loving it until they started playing me a lot with another scoring PG (Kemba Walker) who was a ballhog dickhead.

I went to GM and told them Kemba is in my way and needs to be traded and the GM said "That's not in the teams best interest, not going to happen". I said fine trade me.. and ended up on the Heat which isn't bad considering I'm a 6'4 PG who can bomb 3's and do a little of everything. Win titles as the 3rd option and future of the next Heat era.
