I started out as a 3pt specialist PG and got drafted to the Trail Blazers. I actually like playing for the Blazers as they have many weapons to score. My go to moves are dumping it to L. Aldrige in the post or when he's open on the elbow for a jumpshot. Finding Wesley Matthews open for the 3 or finding Batum in transition.

I was killing it (playing on Superstar) and about 28 games into the season Damian Lillard talks to me on the plane about how I'm playing so well and how I will most likely replace him as the PG in the starting lineup. He also told me there's no hard feelings, yada yada.

Around this time, I was able to ask my GM for a trade. I actually wanted to stay with the Blazers but since I am a Raptors fan, my natural inclination was to ask for a trade to Toronto (they were in the top 5 of the teams that were interested in my services). I asked for a trade again after a couple games and after the next game, I was immediately traded to the Raptors.

I have spent some VC to boost my player's attributes until he was about 85 overall. Usually when I asked for a trade in the past 2k games, I would be traded for a guy who is also around 85 overall as well. This made me think the Raptors were going to trade Rudy Gay for me. When I got to the Raptors, I checked who I was traded for, I ended up getting traded for crappy DJ Augustin and 2014 1st rounder and 2015 1st rounder. Now I am on the Raptors and throwing lobs everywhere to Demar and Rudy and I have also usurped Kyle Lowry as the starting PG.

Life is good right now, no complaints. Lol.
Here's a funny story that is the opposite of yours.....(ha)....a good friend of mine got drafted by the Timberwolves. He checked his trade interest and the Heat were the most interested....He requested a trade and chose the Heat, Rockets, and Clippers as the teams he wanted to go to. He got traded to the Phoenix Suns. LOL. He's miserable because all they try to do is shoot 3 pointers and won't kick it to him down low at PF.

I got drafted by the Kings.... hated it at first....but I've learned to play with the style of teammates I have. We're in the first round of the playoffs...up 2-0 on the Timberwolves. 2nd game was an OT thriller that I hit a 3 pointer at the end of regulation to tie. I know many are complaining about this game....but I'm absolutely loving it.

Like i understand the story line scripts are cool and all but this is just lazy... My team cant defend a single play and the coach expects me to beat the thunder in 5 minutes down 15????? Not to mention the one time I got close he subbed me out until the final 45 seconds down 5 after i built a 4 point lead. I understand if I dont start righ away, but going from 28 to 19 minutes because i cant bring back the worst team in the league from down 15 in a quarter is something that can be fixed if they tested the game a little better. Especially a team like the sixers whose PG sucks.

Also, free throws at B+ seem like the miss WAAY more but that might just be me.

all this said Im still having so much fun playing this game
I feel your pain. I hate that they interfere with the game this way. My teammates don't play smart enough to come back from 20 points in one qtr.
And they make you miss free throws just so you go to the free throw cut scene. I can't tell you how many time I built a lead to get subbed out then in down double digits.

Re: NBA 2K14 (Next Gen.) Official MyCAREER Thread

so I started over as an athletic pg with the goal of making it to the wizards

had 30 pts and 10 assists in the showcase while holding ellis to 10 pts and 10 assists

was interviewed first by the trailblazers..at # 10?

wtf? pick 10 with 30 and 10?

so I turned them down and was mad as h***

until the next team to interview me was....the wizards with the 3rd pick

told the gm that I just want to win so John Wall can have all the shine (though I'm coming for his job) and I love the young talent here in dc

draft day comes and......

the wiz pick otto porter over me...

I go to the 6ers with the 11th pick

I'm about to make everybody PAY for passing me up

(at least till I restart once a patch comes out. all these trades that happen in the game are a buzz kill. But till then, I'll just start stacking vc in anticipation of a patched game)

what position is your my player at?

I've tried every pg type (generally the fastest players on the team)

and ALL their speeds are capped at 92 or lower

what position do you have the ability to have 99 speed at?

My Close/Med/3pt are maxed out at 85. I still get grades around the B

Re: NBA 2K14 (Next Gen.) Official MyCAREER Thread

Quick question: where do I go to change my nickname? My name isn't in the audio, so Nickname is pretty important. Being called "Boss" is great when I'm doing well, but after allowing LeBron to score 40 on 16/19 shooting, I'm not feeling too Boss-like. He did come and talk to me after the game, using his own voice, which was great. Loved that part.

It should be in the Features section when you exit out of MyCareer. There should be an option of editing your MyPlayer.
