Just another reminder-

Until the roster update, ticking up help defense in your Coach Sliders is a must, especially if you’re struggling with on ball defense.

First PNO game.

My record is obviously 0-0.


I choose current raptors and get matched up with a guy using the 12-13 grizzlies and guess what, he turns off all subs and them burns all time outs consecutively in the 3rd quarter.

This my friends is whats “wrong” with this game……

How do I even get this matchup ? I’m in freshman, he’s in what college league ? Lol. And just the mentality of turning off subs and burning all time outs in the 3rd to “re-energize” your players and that it’s actually somewhat effective and just mind blowing……..this doesn’t happen in other sports games. This game is trash, has been from time now and is literally bottom of the ladder when it comes to online head to head.

Sad but true, sucks to hear the truth, but the truth hurts.

Agreed. I asked myself multiple times playing this game what's the purpose of the Gatorade icon because I never notice a difference in play, not even for myself.

So far with how easy it is to score in the paint with anybody. Just wait until you meet Kareem and Wilt. It was pretty bad last year. With them removing the body ups and no real way to stop the spin, it's gonna be punishment season in the paint.

His issue is Jrue is elite/recovers quickly and he isn't content to take the quick 3 off the screen or the midrange J thats open.



Umm...do you see stamina drain stopping spam? Where? Please point that out to me so I can see it.
PnR is an on-ball action. Not an off-ball action. Why on earth would anyone think running a PnR against the biggest demigod in the game (and against the best guard defender in the game) is a good idea? The one time he actually used Claxton to set an OFF-BALL screen, the Bucks user was clueless and left KD wide open because he wanted to sit on the lane line with Giannis.

Also every time you reach/go for a block, you use an adrenaline boost. If you run out of your 3 adrenalines, you move like a turtle. It's not that hard of a concept, and it's worked very well from what I've seen. You'll get tired and out of position far more than in previous 2K's. This guy stayed pretty disciplined with Giannis except for maybe 1 or 2 possessions so he always had adrenaline boosts to use and was always making the play because he was timing it well.

This video isn't really the example you think it is. It's just the Nets user playing bad basketball and getting his *** kicked lol

Edit: I will say I've seen your other posts and I agree that the Giannis driving/pump fake spam (even by the Nets user with Claxton) is still a major issue. The paint mash pump fake stuff is so annoying. I've seen some signs that RS Up defense in the lane is improved this year at generating contests and misses which is good. But we still need to find a way to punish pump fake spammers whether it's with travels, Off. 3 seconds, etc. That stuff is far more annoying to me IMO than anything else we've discussed.

might have to double team them, like teams often had to do in real life.

That double team does nothing with them. Honestly, you could barely get a body up tie up with them last year. With them reducing body ups, good luck.

I'm in tier 3. I stay in tier 3. Dudes have like 50 badges. They didn't have badges in real life, just raw skills. Take the badges away and apply skill then you got something. Can't compare real life to a video game. No way should classic teams be in tier 3. That's just MO as well.
