Looking for My Player SG advice

#1yevinorionPosted 10/7/2011 8:49:14 AM
So, I've made two My Players so far already. An Athletic SG that went to the Knicks at 17 and a 3pt Specialist SG that got taken earlier by the Pistons at 8.

Now personally, I'm going for a Dwyane Wade sort of player who can slash and also hit the midrange and outside shot. I've found the 3pt guy to score super easily and that has resulted in me getting drafted higher (with a better contract) and earning skill points easier in games. However, the athletic abilities (Speed, Quickness, etc) are soooooo expensive.

My Athletic guy on the other hand can't score anywhere near as well, but he's a bit better on defense, rebounding and fast breaks. I don't seem to be able to get as many skill points in games and with a lower rookie contract I'm making like half the cash of my 3pt guy.

So my question is this, in you guys opinions would it be better in the long run to go Athletic and work to get my shot attributes higher? Or go with the 3pt guy and slowly upgrade his athleticism bit by bit?

Honestly I'd pick the 3pt specialist. The athletic attributes are expensive but you can get many more skill points if you can score with ease. Also with scoring more an doing better, you'll be in line for a better contract. Rookie contracts really don't provide you with anything worthwhile you can buy anyways. The attribute purchase is a rip off. 1 million for only 1,000 points.

I would go 3pt...like the guy above said. .you'll get a better contract...also akthelic or not you need a jumper so defenders bite on the pump fake and can't leave you wide open...you can just be the 3pt and upgrade ya speed/handle/dunk/layup/shoot in traffic etc slowly and use the workouts camps ya buy...i didn't get enough money for that yet but with the price Im wishin its worth it...i prob turn auto save off before i buy it so i don't waste my money...but i suggest master 1 thing first instead of spreadin out...I'm a 3 pt SF and I'm upgradin mid/3pt before anything else...

Thanks for the opinions. Think I'm gonna stick with the 3pt guy. Definitely felt like I had more impact in games with him as well since he can be such a scoring force. What I'll probably do is turn off auto-save and try to use each drill I get in the dribble course to build up speed and quickness so I don't have to spend points on them.

Ah...that's cheatin...lol...think about it...the game just came out...you don't think you can nake a legit superstar before 2k13 drops?...i did the speed trick last year and it hurt me actually...cause i didn't really see progress...i just dominated and got bored...this year i want that real NBA feel...I'm not askin for trades...I'm gone chose my best situation during free agency...the jazz drafted me so I'm gone be greatful and see what i chose to do in free agency...plus with money playing a factor i might go to the highest bidder...never know...sometimes a talented team doesn't help your career...example...iverson on the nuggets...

I see why you would say that, but considering you start with only 3 drills and get 1 every so many games, it's not like you can go crazy with it. Also, attributes cost a LOT more than last year. So it's going to take longer to become a legit superstar in any case. So the trick may still work, but it's not as easy to really abuse it since you don't start with 10 drills to begin with.

All I'm planning to do is spend my skill points as I wish and use my drills solely on speed and quickness until they're at a level I'm happy with since it's more cost-effective than trying to actually spend the skill points on them.
