[top]Tips and Strategies

Offline Tips
Game Slider's, Game Slider's and Game Slider's. Nuff said

Online Tips
Don't play people who only pick the Thunder, Lakers, or Heat. I learned this about my 4th game in that no matter how well you play, you just don't stand a chance. When I saw Mario Chalmers dunk from the free throw line, I knew i didn't stand a chance. Eventually I learned and I picked the Knicks for my trophies. Currently on a 8 game winning streak. Whoever you use know the way they play. Adjust Defensive Tedencies against people who like to drive all the time. Change Coach Profiles to tweak it for whatever suits you bests.

Considering if 2K doesn't patch the You're Officially Hot trophy, you'll get all streak trophies and 10 win trophy eventually. It's just up to you to decided how long it's going to take you.

Cheat Codes
From the Main Menu go Features>Codes. Enter the following codes if you'd like with no effect on trophies.

payrespect- Unlocks ABA basketball
underarmour- Unlocks UnderArmour Micro G Torch Shoe
spriteeffect- MyPlayer gains +3 in ball handling


This will be your most time consuming in your hunt for You need to play at least four seasons depending on how well your MyCareer is coming along. For the majority of the time you'll be going for Immortality. Remember to purchase and equip upgrades and to use the Sprite Effect cheat which gives your player a +3 in Ball Handling. There's two ways you can go about this from players giving me feedback.

Easy Method: Before starting a new MyCareer go to Rosters and adjust everyone's stats as you see fit to around 50 or so. The only stats you won't be able to change will be of those rookies coming into the league with you. This ensures that your in the run for MVP, Scoring Title, and multiple Playoff appearances.

My way: This will obviously not be as easy as the easy method but it's more rewarding. Leave everything as is and compete against the best in the league for your awards. I have feeling most will pick the easy method lmao

Start an Association and knock out Not Your Father's Association. Set to 14 games 1 min qrts. Adjust game sliders. Unlock all games through commissioner tools. Play all 14 games and advance you league until you reach the playoffs. Play each round of the playoffs advancing the league a round until you get Don't Hate the Player.

**You don't have to wait for the timer anymore!! Play your games and advance your league.**

See You're Officially Hot, Remaking History, On the Road Again, and The Sum of its Parts

Exhibition Games
You'll need to play at least 3 games.

For the first game go to Rosters from the Main Menu and trade Brandon Jennings to the Thunder. Change quarter lengths to 12 minutes by pressing where you pick teams. For this game you'll be attempting to get KD Unlimited Raining 3's Men of Steal It's Raining Trip-Dub
Dub-Dub Wire to Wire Smothering The Closer and Giveth and Taketh Away. Remember Game Sliders are your friends. For this set 3point and Steals to 99 then change reaching foul tendency to 0.

For the second game select the Thunder again as you will be attempting to go for Swat and Swipe Five by Five and Block Party. Again, ensure quarter lengths are set to 12 minutes and to use Game Sliders by setting team Blocking to 99 and shooting foul tending to 0.

What should be your third and final exhibition game. You should go for Hold the Fat Lady and Buzzer Beater. I personally had to do this a couple off times because my quarter lengths were too short. I found 3 minutes to be perfect.

If you are still missing any of these trophies go ahead and replay an exhibition game to get them.

Offline Association
Create an Association with the "Today's Date" option in start date for The Here and Now. Once you've created the Association go into Coaching>Gameplan>Total Sim Control. Adjust the settings as you see fit and receive Puppet Master. Simulate the season until the last 5 games, play the last 5 games for Streaking. For Ticker Tape I suggest you play all playoff games.

Runneth Over
Obtain a balance of 20,000 VC.

This will only pop once you have a balance of 20,000VC, not how much you've earned. There's a couple of ways you can obtain this trophy depending on how bad your trophy hunting itch is. You can gradually increase your VC earnings through MyPlayer, Association, or Quick Game Online. The fastest way to go about this without purchasing VC through the PSN Store would be to go into a MyPlayer Blacktop game.

If you wish to purchase your VC, fastest way to knock this out is to go into MyTeam>Store>Players. The most expensive players are worth 20,000 VC. The game will send you directly to purchase VC from the PSN Store. Here is what you will pay for VC:
  • 2000 VC PACK ($0.99) – Get an extra 2,000 VC
  • 5000 VC PACK ($1.99) – Get an extra 5,000 VC
  • 10,000 VC PACK ($2.99) – Get an extra 10,000 VC
You'll need to purchase two 10,000 VC Pack's to have a total balance of 20,000VC for the trophy to pop.

Buzzer Beater
Make a game winning shot with no time left on the clock in a non-simulated game.

For this trophy ensure that you are losing by at least one point or are tied. Ensure you have the final shot in the game and with 1 second left put your winning shot. Trophy will unlock shortly after the shot is made. You should also be attempting Hold the Fat Lady by losing by 10 or more at the start of the 4th quarter

You need to be playing at least 5 min quarters. Playing 1 min quarters will not get you this trophy.

Record a triple double with any player in a non-simulated game.

Easiest way to go about this is to adjust your game sliders so that you have double figures in Points, Steals, and Assists.

Record two double doubles with any teammates in the same non-simulated game.

Adjust game sliders so that you get double figures in Points and Steals. Easiest way to do this is to rotate point guards, steal and score.

Five By Five
Record 5 or more in 5 different stats with any player in a non-simulated game.

You'll need to score at least 5 Points, 5 Rebounds, 5 Steals, 5 Assistsl, and 5 Blocks. I suggest you go for blocks first using APriceless easy method of using to controllers for Block Party

It's Raining
Make 15 or more 3-pointers with any team in a non-simulated game.

To get this trophy adjust your Game Sliders for 3 pointers to 100. Doesn't matter who shoot's it, it's guaranteed to go in.

Record 10 or more blocks with any team in a non-simulated game.

If by chance you don't have a second controller set quarter lentghts to 12 minutes, and change the game sliders like APriceless said above. Key to this is to use a big front line. Some good ones are Thunder, Lakers, Knicks, and Bulls.

I suggest you play all of your games, then when you finish advance the league until you receive a notice that the Playoffs have begun. Once the Playoffs have begun play your match, then advance to the next round and or make all games available. Rinse and Repeat until the trophy pops after you've won the Finals.

Trophy Glitched

Some users have experienced some issues with this trophy not popping after winning the NBA Championship. Not that like previous 2k Titles the description of the trophy states you have to play every playoff game. This year even though it's not stated in the description it is still required to play every game. Play every game in the Playoffs including The Finals to ensure you get this trophy.

Shooting Star
Win the MVP award in NBA: Creating a Legend mode.

For this trophy I used 2K12's method of rearranging the roster. I picked Lebron James put him with the Bobcats and edited all his stats to 99. I traded all competition in the SF position to the West Coast.

With the Bobcats you only have Two Key Games against the Hornets. Unfortunately for me towards the end of the season half of March and all of April became Key Games. If this happens to you, just set quarter lengths to 5 mins so it doesn't take as long.

You can always keep track of your status in the MVP race by going from the Main Menu>NBA>Awards Race. You should get the trophy at the end of the season before the playoffs when Awards are announced.

Trophy Glitched

Almost everyone I've spoken to has had different results with this trophy. Some players have gotten 5 wins without being on a streak and received this along with Back to Back to Back. Others have had to win 5 in a row for this trophy. I on the other hand got this a different way. I'll explain.

My quick match record was 2-3. I played a game and won. Making my record 3-3. I wasn't on any type of streak but i received the Back to Back to Back trophy.

Then it hit me. Although I wasn't on any streak, my player on the blacktop was 3-0. So i figured that had something to do with me getting the trophy so i tested it out.

I played myplayer blacktop then i was 5-0 overall. I went to quick lost a few matches but eventually got to 5 wins and ding.... Lincoln and You're Officially Hot
