It does help slow them down for me. Of course that opens up the floor for other players but pick your poison is part of the game.

It doesnt stop them but no one in the history of the game ever stopped those two, except maybe Bill Russell.

Agree that Giannis is a freak but IMO this guy wants to roam and clean up any messes by the CPU defenders. Lets NOT let him do that--make him uncomfortable....really test this guy out and see if he's any good when the play comes at him. See how disciplined he is--IMO he plays drop (or just hesitates) so Kyrie in the mid-range when you get separation from Jrue works, also Pick and Pop...Aldridge would have drove him crazy.

You quick pull off screens/pick and pop this guy early...willing to bet late you can get him to be out of position late and get Kyrie a layup if you beat Jrue.

Out-thinking guys like this is my favorite part of the game for me. Its like a puzzle you can solve.

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.
Definitely didnt see this. he played help well early but he was a bunny hopper in general to me. Played offense the same way...spin/pump fake and wait for the defender to make a move and counter--which the game needs to resolve as a tactic. Static/waiting offense players need to see alot of strip and contain animations. (see below)

He was out of sync with a new game, sure...but the biggest issue was he couldn't trust perimeter shooting & Giannis had no downside from pogo-sticking. Giannis had the one foul on Ben early and literally no other consequences.

It's a video game fam. They're OP. Take away the badges and base it on ratings, that's much more realistic to me. But 50 badges is ridiculous. Once again, if your gonna have tiers, classic teams shouldn't be in tier 3.


They're putting in tiers for a reason wouldn't you say? And don't talk about missing players and incomplete rosters. NOBODY subs out the starters on classic teams.

The game is fine. It's the lack of innovation for the mode that's killing it. They just need to unlock all the teams and call it a night. If it were me, I would probably play it significantly more if I could use the Classic Pacers from the start. I'm tired of the grind of unlocking the team. I hate it even more when I have a bad streak, where I have to unlock them again.

We used to get videos for this mode.

I really wish they would keep that green release or nothing crap to the Park mode.

I’m liking the game so far but having to green release a wide open jumpshot to make it is the type of **** that’ll make me drop this game.

I recently came back after three years off, I noticed they removed some freelances and series.
What are your favorite freelance/series in 2k23?
Thx everyone!
