Default NBA 2K7.... glitch?

I'm not sure if this is a glitch, or if this is just the perfect storm of random luck, but I thought I'd share this with you...

I started an association with the T-Wolves, and immediately shipped out Ricky Davis, Kevin Garnett, Mark Blount, etc. to clear cap room and start rebuilding.

I picked up Bynum, Al Jefferson, and several top draft choices. I signed Delonte West for my mid level exception..

So this takes place over a few seasons. I picked up a few top draft picks with my poor record and draft two good SG"s and a real good PF, and a so-so SF with a late 1st rounder.

So anyways, after a few seasons of this, something weird happened.... I end up with the #5 pick in the draft, I draft a point guard, with range.. I go through my off season, and the next thing I know, all my player ratings have gone up.

Randy Foye is a 98, my SG is a 99, Bynum is a 94, Jefferson a 96. KWAME BROWN is an 88! That SF I picked up? Went from a 72, to an 88. My other SG I drafted is a 94. Delonte West is a 98! He has a 94 rating from three point land.

So Ok, I've seen ratings go up a couple and come right back down again, so I figure maybe it'll go away...

I sim a whole season and end up winning 60 games. Next season 69 games!

This is so weird, but funny. I traded away my backup SG, and that SF for Lebron James.

I don't know what the hell's going on, but this is quite funny.

This is a little off from your question but is 2K6 or 2K7 as fun as 2K8? I'm thinking of buying an older version used to save money. They cost like $9-$12 at GameStop.

I bought NBA Live 06 for $6 yesterday and will be returning it tomorrow to replace it. That game sucks d***! The worst BB game I've ever played. I'm never getting NBA Live again for Xbox 360.

NBA 2K7 is an amazing game for you to pick up Aldridge Fan. It was basically considered the best basketball game until 2K8 came out.

And I don't know if thats a glitch, but that's pretty sweet, I always love a good glitch here and there.

Does anyone else like to sim these games? I love it. I'll sim madden too. I play a game here and there, and I have a season with the Cavs that I'm trying to go the whole 82 (difficult on 12 min. quarters, because the games are LOOONG).

After you sim for a decade or two though, it becomes a lot harder to tell who the players are. They're all computer created by that point because everyone else retired.

I have 2K7 (PS2) version, damm is that game addictive, I'm in my 2014-2015season now. Won 4 out of 7 championships with the Lakers. I use 3 min. quarters. So each game comes out to about 25 minutes real time. Most of my starters are computer generated top 5 picks now, as alot of players have already retired. By the way Bargnani & Igoudala are unstoppable and Verajao is pretty good too.
