Just a heads up... I’d put Sabonis on Kanter. He’s stronger than Turner and is strong on the box out. He can’t defend Kanter all that well but at least he’s not letting Kanter get easy boards or getting under the hoop on the post up.

Using the Bucks for the first time. Da_Czar did an amazing job with their offense. Thank God it's not a freelance. Just have plays is having the offense. So at least I can play with Giannis but not feel bad about it lol.

Re: NBA 2K19 Play Now Online Thread

I'm finally coming back around to hating steal spamming. It has way too much upside and is way too annoying to have almost no negative consequences. It makes doing everything so much more annoying and impossible at times. Your opponent can just switch and spam constantly, if they reach it will either block you from doing anything, steal the ball, or least likely of all it will cause a meaningless foul.

Having fouling being the biggest penalty does nothing to prevent steal spam. The foul limits for players and teams is the same as a full length NBA game, but 2K games are half as long, which means you can fouls TWICE as much as you would be able to in a real game. Having a player get 4 fouls in the 4th quarter is unheard of, and even if it did happen the chance of getting 2 more fouls is nearly impossible. I don't think I've ever seen a player foul out in 20 years of 2K.

The limit to reach the FT penalty is also high compared to how long the games actually are, so you are almost never in the penalty capitalizing on a fouling opponent, even if they are spamming and actually getting called for hacking all game.

Right now I can't even be really mad at steal spammers because it has such a ridiculously high upside, and absolutely no downside.

I can't think of a reason to NOT steal spam.

I got in contact with 2K support and they confirmed with me that I cannot get demoted from the GOAT league. This is very unfortunate. Hate getting matched up against all time teams while using regular teams. I will be very careful in 2K20.

That's why I just stay at freshman - I still get good competitive matchups and I don't have to wait 20 mins for a game either.

Well there's always the to many penalties glitch lol. Will it be 2 fouls or 8 fouls haha? I've had dudes had that many fouls against me but that message has probably only popped up once. Where as it's probably happened to me 20-30 times for only 2-3 penalties/fouls.

But more to your point, it's the AI steals that annoy me sometimes, way to aggresive. Steal spammers aren't hard to beat.
