I’m conflicted when it comes to stamina with PNO. Otherwise, it would be hard to justify using a lot of classic teams because their bench has too many generics or is just god awful.

I'm same way. I definitely agree that stamina should have an impact on the games in PNO when a user has a full squad. I have played games where my opponent didn't call a timeout for the entire game, and was still able to score efficiently down the stretch. I always call timeouts out of habit to rest my players (which obviously helps my opponent too), but I'm starting to think if it's even worth it.

With the classic teams, that's where I'm like it might not be such a good idea.

I think an example that specific probably means it would be fine to do since so much else does not fall under that very specific umbrella. Also usually you have more than 5 guys at the very least, even on those teams.

I use the Classic Bucks with Kareem, and all they have coming off the bench is Allen and Cunningham. I'll be honest, the poor stamina implementation helps me win games with that particular team. However, I don't turbo on every possession either, so I don't know what would be the consequences if I did.

The game is trending away from sim as the player base does. More and more of the player base doesn't follow the NBA or are just casual watchers. They are more focused on it being a video game than a representation of the real life product.

This was spot on!!!! People are mentioning using classic teams. Ok well the additional issue is the lack of players also. You shouldn't have also no stamina lost because you play with a team with generics.* Stamina is an huge issue. Ppl are much more careless with the use of turbo because of it*

Quick question: is Stamina RATING the issue or is it badges like Tireless Scorer & Tireless Defender that most stars likely have Golds in?

2K doesn't playtest these things, they simply throw 50 badges on a player without giving any thought to them.
