[top]Tips & Strategies

NBA 2K14 Game Modes

MyGM - You will be tasked with taking an NBA team and building them into a championship contender. You will have control of everything with the team from ticket prices to roster moves.

MyCAREER -
You will create an NBA prospect and guide them from the rookie showcase all the way until their final game. Use the in-game currency to upgrade your players skills. In this mode, you are only responsible for your player and his actions.

MyTeam - Like Madden Ultimate Team (if you have played Madden in the past few years), you will build a team using "cards". There are 3 main types of players/item cards (Bronze, Silver, and Gold) and also 4 special types of player cards that enhance certain players (Emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, and Diamond). You will also collect cards containing an NBA team's court, jerseys, playbook, and coaches. In MyTeam, you will have to participate in Domination mode and Road to the Playoffs, both of which have their explanations below.

Tips

- NBA 2K14 has a section called Training Camp. Not only do you need to complete these for a trophy, but it will also help familiarize you with the controls for the game
- Do not spend VC or MC (the currencies of the game) unless you have to. Although you will need to spend currency within MyGm and MtCAREER, do not spend it for unnecessary reasons. The more currency you can have saved up prior to starting MyTeam, the more packs you can buy.
- In MyTeam, you can only have 10 of each type of contract (Gold - 5 games, Silver - 4 games, Bronze - 3 games). This is important to know as when you open a 1-, 2-, or 3-star pack, you receive a contract in each of them (1 star - Bronze, 2 star - Silver, 3 star - Gold). If you are maxed out, that contract will have to be sold off and you will not be able to get it back. Save your packs until you have an opening for contracts.
- If you are out of contracts and want to add more to a player, you can buy contracts specifically by themselves. Click on the player, go to Edit Player and then to Add Contracts. You will be able to buy 1 contract (1 game) or 5 contracts. The amount for each one depends on the player.
- You will need to be a PS Plus member to play in the Park, in Road To The Playoffs within MyTeam, and to do the online league. Otherwise, you need internet to complete MyTeam (no PS Plus required to just play) and MyCareer if you started a career while you are online.
- When buying team specific packs in MyTeam, the player you will get is completely random. You may receive the same player many times in a row before you receive a new player not already in your collection.
- In MyTeam, you cannot have duplicate player card. You can switch out a duplicate player with his counterpart if the duplicate has more contracts. This will be key as you try to keep playing through the two modes within MyTeam.
- Although there is a market within MyTeam, it is not like the market that was on Madden 25 where you can trade players or compete in auctions to acquire a player. You can only sell cards here for more MC. Use the market to sell playbooks, arenas, jerseys and courts that you will not be using.
- For games in which you are trying to complete certain requirements for a single player, use the in-game sliders to make your life easier.
- In MyGm, you only get VC for games you play. Simming a game will not earn VC. Only way to get VC if simming games is by completing Owner's objectives and having other accomplishments.
- 2K Sports randomly put out locker codes. You can look for these codes on their Facebook page or online. All have a certain limit on them (either number of people who can claim or expiration date). These codes can give out anything from VC to players.

Deal Me In
Purchase a Card Pack in MyTEAM.

Very simple trophy. On the main screen in MyTeam, there is a section in which you can buy packs to bolster your team. Using either VC (virtual currency, the main currency used throughout the game) or MC (MyTeam currency), buy any single pack to earn this trophy.

[top]
Seek and Destroy
Win a game in Domination mode in MyTEAM.

This trophy should come naturally. The trophy description says it all: Just beat any team in Domination mode.

[top]
99 Problems and Domination Ain't One!
Earn 99 Stars in Domination mode in MyTEAM.

In Domination mode, you will be matched up against all 30 NBA teams as well as the All-Star teams for each conference and an All-MyTeam team (comprised of the best players in the game regardless of conference affiliation). You will only be able to play against two teams initially (Utah Jazz and Orlando Magic). Once you beat a team, the next team in sequence opens up for you to play. Once you play all teams from a conference, the All-Star teams become available and upon playing the All-Star teams, the All-MyTeam team will open.

This trophy could prove to be problematic as there are no specific requirements as to how you can obtain 3 stars. However, here are what I aimed for during my games:

- Score 70 points. It is possible to score a few points less but 70 points is a safe zone.
- Have between 3-5 steals and 3-5 blocks.
- Have a good shooting percentage. Aim for 45% if possible.
- Use only bronze players on your team. At the end of the game, you will get a 3X score multiplier towards your score. This is about the only must-do on the list.

A couple of other tips:

- Play a fast paced game. Try to get a shot within the first 10 seconds of your shot clock. Make sure it is a good shot however.
- Play a Full Court Press or a Full Court Trap (Do this by hitting the button, then , and selecting either one) and try to get the two guards accepting the in-bounds pass covered. This will force the in-bounder to throw a full court pass which can occasionally be stolen or will occasionally be thrown out of bounds. If you cannot stop the in-bounds to the guards, forcing them to the side of the court will sometimes prompt them to try a spin move which will allow you to knock the ball out of their hands.
- Tapping the button a couple of times will initiate an intentional foul. Use this during the 4th quarter if you aren't sure you will be able to achieve 70 points.

It has to be noted that you don't have to win the games to gain 3 stars. You can allow them to score quickly to make sure you get the ball back on offense quicker and allow you to score valuable points.

[top]
Top of the World
Make it to the first seed in Road to the Playoffs in MyTEAM.

In Road To The Playoffs, you will be competing against other MyTeam players across the world. This is a trophy that should be put off until you have a solid MyTeam roster (you can have multiple rosters set up) as most players will be loaded with Gold, Ruby and Sapphire players.

When you start your Road To The Playoffs, you start in a "Qualifying" round. After meeting a required number of wins, you will move onto being an 8th Seed. This will continue until you complete your games as a 2nd seed and thus reach 1st seed and the trophy. Unlike with the Madden Road To The Playoffs, one loss does not knock you all the way back to the start. Within each seed, you need a certain number of wins to advance, a certain number of wins to stay in that seed and a certain number of losses before you are demoted to the last seed you completed. Below is a description of what is needed within each "round":

Qualifying – 3 wins to advance
8th Seed – 4 wins to advance, 3 wins: stay and 10 losses: demotion (Awarded Bronze pack upon completion)
7th Seed – 5 wins: advance, 3 wins: stay and 10 losses: demotion (Awarded Bronze pack upon completion)
6th Seed – 6 wins: advance, 4 wins: stay and 9 losses: demotion (Awarded Silver pack upon completion)
5th Seed - 7 wins: advance, 5 wins: stay and 8 losses: demotion (Awarded Silver pack upon completion)
4th Seed - 8 wins: advance, 5 wins: stay and 8 losses: demotion (Awarded Silver pack upon completion)
3th Seed - 8 wins: advance, 5 wins: stay and 8 losses: demotion (Awarded Gold pack and Sapphire Griffin upon completion)
2nd Seed - 9 wins: advance, 5 wins: stay and 8 losses: demotion (Awarded Gold pack and Sapphire Durant upon completion)

[top]
Iced Out
Acquire a Diamond Player in MyTEAM.

There are only a handful of ways to acquire a Diamond player.

1. Wait for a locker code to be issued by 2K Sports. This has only come up 3 times (to acquire Diamond Kobe and Diamond Durant with a specific code and a Diamond Tim Duncan through a code that gives you random items). However, these codes specify that only a certain number of whichever Diamond player is being given out will be accepted. That said, unless you are able to be online at the exact time the code is given out, you most likely will not get the Diamond player.

2. Collect all cards in the game (from MyTeam). This includes all of the players, playbooks, coaches, arenas, historic players and jerseys. If you are able to do this, you will receive Diamond Rose.

3. Collect and complete all Historic Teams. This will earn you Diamond Jordan.

4. Collect the best player off of every NBA team. This will earn you Diamond LeBron. This is the easiest, albeit longest, method and I will outline the players needed below.

5. Collect Diamond Jordan and Diamond LeBron. This will earn you Diamond Carmelo.

Thanks to looking online, this is the list of players that have been mentioned as the best on their respective teams. I apologize if this list is not accurate and will update it if new information comes out.

Teams and Player Needed

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
Collect 'Em All
Complete the '13-'14 NBA Collection in MyTEAM.

This trophy will prove to be the biggest headache in the entire trophy list. To obtain this trophy, you must acquire (and keep) every player on all 30 NBA teams (421 players in all). You acquire players by either getting 3 stars against that team in Domination mode (you will receive one player for the team you have acquired 3 stars against) or by buying a team specific pack in the Packs area. Unfortunately, you only receive 1 player per pack (although you will occasionally acquire 2-3 players in the Bronze, Silver and Gold packs).

As mentioned in the tips section above, the headache of this trophy comes from the fact all players you get out of packs are random and that there is no market for trades and/or auctions. This means that you will have to hope that every time you open a pack, you get a new, previously unowned player. There are have been reports of players opening packs from the same team and seeing the same few players over the span of 30 packs. Best of luck with the randomness.

MyTeam Pack Prices

Toggle Spoiler



2K sports also occasionally do a price drop or have a deal on certain teams/packs. Keep a look out at which teams come up during these deals.

Note: Acquiring an Emerald, Sapphire or Ruby player does not go towards this. Those players are separate from the teams themselves.

[top]
There's More?
Complete the Historic Collection in MyTEAM.

Within MyTeam, in addition to the 30 NBA teams, you can also acquire players to complete certain historic NBA teams from the past.

For this trophy, you want to focus on completing just one team. If you acquire a player from two or more historic teams, you have to complete those historic teams as well to obtain this trophy. Throughout the season, 2K Sports release packs specific to a set historic team. Focus on just that one team and try to acquire all players for it.

Straight Up Mogul
Upgrade your MyGM to Level 70.

This trophy is obtained by maxing out all attributes for your GM. You will need atleast 70,000 VC to be able to upgrade everything. You will also unlock Fresh Meat and Emerging Force on your way to this trophy. The values for each attribute may differ depending on which personality you choose when first starting the game mode. I personally chose Persuader as it makes it easier to talk free agents into coming to your team and also helps you with your own players (re-signing and encouraging them during cold streaks). The values below reflect the costs for the Persuader GM type and they may be different for others.


Coaching - 10,300 VC
Training - 10,800 VC
Scouting - 10,300 VC
Salary Negotiation - 11.970 VC
Trade Negotiation - 10,300 VC
Business Savvy - 10,300 VC
Emotional Intelligence - 6600 VC

Note: You will need to be level 70 to fulfill part of one of the requirements for purchasing a team.

[top]
My Entrepreneur
Purchase an NBA Franchise in MyGM.

To complete this trophy, you will need to have atleast 50,000 VC, will have needed to reach Straight Up Mogul and also meet 3 requirements:

- Own all attributes and Special Abilities: For the most part, this will be done once you reach Straight Up Mogul but you will also need to purchase all 8 special abilities open to your GM

- Owner at least Happy: For your owner to be happy, he must have a trust score of 61 or higher. This is accomplished by completing goals that you are given throughout the year. Depending on how you respond to the owner and whether you accomplish said goals will increase or decrease his confidence in you.
When your owner talks to you about goals that he wants to have accomplished, you can respond in one of three ways:
  • Will Accomplish: Raises owner's trust alot initially but will significantly lower trust if failed
  • Might Accomplish: Slightly raises trust initially but will lower trust slightly if failed
  • Won't Accomplish: Decreases trust alot initially but won't lower significantly again if failed
Another way to raise trust is to give positive answers during press conferences when question pertains to you and the owner.
Be careful though because if your owner's trust lowers too much, you may be fired and have to restart everything again with a new team.
If you go to the owner option, you can also see the owner's current trust in you and any current goals that you have yet to accomplish

- Managed the team for at least 3 seasons: Self-explanatory

Once you have met all 3 requirements above, you will be given the option to purchase the team when you speak with the owner.

Make It Rain
Make a profit of $35M in a single season in MyGM.

See All That and a Bag of Chips

Glitch Warning: See below for glitch description.

[top]
All That and a Bag of Chips
Make a profit in the same season you win an NBA title in MyGM.

You should also look to earn Make It Rain as the playoffs will bring in more money for your team. To make a profit, do the following:
  • Keep fan interest as high as possible (above 95% if possible). This brings more fans to each game. If you see fan interest dropping, play and win a couple games to gain the fans back.
  • Find a good balance for the prices of tickets, merchandise and everything else sold at the arena. If you lower your cost too much, you will lose money. Too high and no fans will want to buy.
  • Try to get your team salary as low as possible. This will provide more money in your pocket.
Glitch Warning: Players have reported this trophy and Make It Rain glitching on them after meeting all requirements. Some were able to earn these trophies after the next season, others had to delete the save and start a new MyGm and the rest had to try a different roster (custom vs default). However, they all earned their trophies after a short time.

[top]
Fan Favorite
Get 100% Fan Interest in MyGM.

The key to this trophy is starting with a good team that is perenially in the championship hunt. A team such as the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat are your best bets. Not only are all these teams consistently playing for a championship but they also have great fan support.

Next, you will want to make sure that your team is having a good season and that nothing negative happens with your best players. If you go on a long losing streak, or have multiple losing streaks, fan interest will decline rapidly. Also, if one of your best players is injured and will be out for a long period of time, quit out of your MyGM to avoid the negativity that will follow. (Note: You can not quit to the main menu as the game saves when you quit out. You must close the application to avoid it saving. Also, if you are playing your games and a player is hurt mid-game, you must close the game as the game will auto-save once a game ends.)

Alternatively, you can also try to get this trophy by trading for another player that will garner alor of fan support. You can put players on the trade block and find a team that is willing to part with a top player. Typically, you will need to add atleast one 1st round pick to help this happen. If you trade for a top player, at your press conference, answer that the player you received will be a team leader. Good players to trade for (not on one of the 3 teams mentioned above) include:
  • Rajon Rondo - Boston Celtics
  • Steph Curry - Golden State Warriors
  • James Harden - Houston Rockets
  • Paul George - Indiana Pacers
  • John Wall - Washington Wizards
The players that you will need to include from the 3 starting teams are:
  • Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers - Miami Heat
  • Serge Ibaka - Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Either Tony Parker or Manu Ginobilli - San Antonio Spurs

[top]
You Are Getting Very Sleepy
Use a Persuasive Pitch during a conversation in MyGM.

You can get this trophy at any point during your MyGM career. To get it quickly however, as soon as you have gained 2000 VC, go into MyGM options and upgrade your Emotional Intelligence to Level 2. Next, purchase the ability Trade Influence.

After that, go into your Trade Finder and select 2 mid-tier players and your 1st round draft pick (must be a 1st rounder for this to work). Once you find someone to trade with, add another player or put a better overall into their trade proposal. After submitting your trade, the other GM should respond saying "That is not quite what we are looking for." As long as they have interest in the trade somewhat, you will be given a chance to adjust your proposal. Instead, click over the options list for responses until you see "Pump Up Draft Pick". Click this and you will have another trophy.

[top]
Total Sell Out
Sell out all 41 home games in a season in MyGM.

Start your MyGM with either the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder or San Antonio Spurs. These 3 teams nearly always sellout their home games. Two other options are the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers.

This trophy goes hand in hand with fan interest in your team. The higher the fan interest, the more likely you will have a sellout. To continue keeping your sellouts coming, your team must be having a good season. Having a long losing streak (especially if many are coming at home) will negatively affect your fan interest and therefore your chances of a sellout.

This trophy can be done during any season so if you miss it during your first or second season, don't worry. You must coach atleast 3 seasons before you can buy a team so you have time.

[top]
Keepin' It Real
Win a title with the Lakers without paying luxury tax in MyGM.

Luxury tax is the payment each team makes to the league for going over the salady cap. There are a few steps to follow.

First, set up your league. When doing this, you can also set up the NBA conferences how you want. Select yes to this option and change the following teams:
  • Miami Heat for the LA Lakers
  • Indiana Pacers for Utah Jazz
  • Chicago Bulls for Sacramento Kings
  • New Orleans Pelicans for the Toronto Raptors
After doing that, you will want to move the Lakers, 76ers, Jazz, Bucks and Magic into the same division.
These moves will make it all the more likely that you not only win your division but also have an easier road in the playoffs.

Next, you will want to setup your roster:

1. Create a custom roster. To use a custom roster, you must select "Yes" on the setup screen for custom teams. You will want to focus on building a good, young and cheap team. You must do this while also staying under the $72 million salary cap. The best way to do this is look at players that are household names but have also been in the league for less than 3 years. This is not to say you can't get a LeBron or Kobe. Just be warned that putting more than one superstar on your roster severly limits building a solid team. Instead, you will have 2-4 very good/solid players followed by a huge dropoff.

2. The other way is to go through the trading section of being a GM. I have listed trades that not only help you financially but better your team/don't greatly hurt your overall. The ones marked in bold are trades that should be considered first. It is more than likely that you will need 2-3 trades to get under the cap. You can also use trade finder to select players you are willing to trade or trade for.

Toggle Spoiler



Lastly comes the season and the playoffs. It does not matter what your record/seed is entering the playoffs. Your only worry is getting there. Towards the end of the season, keep looking at the standings. If you are not in 8th place, at worse, after 65 games then you should start playing until you are.

Once the playoffs start, it is best of 7 every series. You can again simulate but if the opponent gets to 3 wins, you are on the brink of elimination and must win out to move on.

[top]
It's All About Marketability
Acquire a player with 5-star Marketability in MyGM.

This is a very simple trophy to obtain. Start with a team that has a player that is easily marketable (Heat with LeBron or Oklahoma City with Durant). During the season, use LeBron or KD and offer them for another player of 5-star marketability. Sometimes teams will make a 1 for 1 trade but more often than not you will need to add atleast a 1st round draft pick.

Another way to go about this trophy if you cannot complete a trade is to wait for the offseason. During this time, find players that are high in marketability and offer them the max contract that you can. You can also use persuasion to make it more likely for them to accept your offer and therefore join your team, earning you the trophy.

[top]
Mess Around and See What Happens
Record a triple-double with any player in a non-simulated game.

Obtaining a triple-double means that you have hit double figures in three of the following categories:
  • Points: Very simple to accomplish
  • Assists: To get an assist, a pass from a player must directly lead to a basket. Usually the basket needs to be made in less than 3 seconds although I have received an assist after a longer duration than that
  • Rebounds: This could be difficult as you need to be in the right place at the right time. Many times a shorter player will have a rebound "stolen" by a bigger teammate/opponent. You will want the player that needs the rebound to be near the hoop when a shot is taken so they can rebound a miss.
  • Steal: Tapping button will allow your player to swipe at the ball (Just be careful not to hit too many times or you will commit an intentional foul). If your player knocks the ball out and a teammate recovers it, the player that knocked the ball out will be credited with a steal. Also, deflections off passes that are taken by teammates also gain a steal
  • Blocks: The toughest of all 5 categories to obtain double figures in. You must time a shot just right and jump to allow your player to block the shot. This is easiest to do near the rim.
The two best players to do this with are LeBron and Durant as both can get their shot, are exceplent passers and they are big men that can go inside for a rebound.

If you are having trouble with this, change your game to 12 minute quarters and don't substitute your player out.

[top]
The Power of Three
Make 15 three-pointers with any team in a non-simulated game.

You can go about this trophy in one of three ways.

Option 1: Create a custom roster with the best 3-point shooters on it. Players you will want to add are Damian Lillard (Portland), Danny Green (San Antonio), Stephen Curry (Golden State), and Ray Allen (Miami). These 4 players are excellent 3-point shooters who can hit the shot from all over the court.

Option 2: You can create a roster that has all players needed for a specific trophy. Using this method, you will almost assuredly complete this trophy as you must hit 9 3-pointers with Paul George and also score 22 points in one quarter with Steph Curry (which will require a couple of 3 pointers).

Option 3: Select a team that is strong in 3-point shooting. The top 4 teams (along with which players to use) for this are:
  1. Portland: Mo Williams, Damien Lillard and Wesley Matthews
  2. San Antonio: Tony Parker, Marco Belinelli, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green
  3. Golden State: Stephen Curry, Klay Thomas and Andre Igoudala
  4. Miami: LeBron James, Ray Allen, Shane Battier and Norris Cole

[top]
Motor Like No Other
Get 10 offensive rebounds in a non-simulated game.

For this trophy, you will want to use teams that have atleast one top notch rebounder on their team. The teams I suggest are:
  • Memphis with Zack Randoph and Marc Gasol
  • Houston with Dwight Howard
  • San Antonio with Tim Duncan
You can further help your cause by adjusting the in-game sliders to max out your rebounding and decreasing the rebounding of the AI, adjust your strategies to that your team will crash the offensive glass, and take bad shots from 3-point range to give yourself more opportunities at obtaining offensive rebounds.

[top]
Buzzer Beater
Make a game-winning shot with no time left on the clock.

For this trophy, you must be tied or losing as time is winding down in the game. Use your best player (although I recommend using the Miami Heat since they have LeBron and he can get a shot anywhere on the court) and get a shot off with no more than 1 second on the clock. As long as the basket is made and there is no time left on the clock, the trophy will pop for you.

[top]
Making Coach Proud
Hit 3 three-pointers off a fast-break in a non-simulated game.

A fast break happens any time that the defensive team makes a changeover to offense and has a chance to score before the other team is able to set-up it's defense. To earn this trophy, you need to make three 3-point shots in these type of situations. To get into a fast break, you can either make a steal, get a block or get a defensive rebound. Your aim is to get to the other end of the floor and make a 3-pointer before your opponent is back in it's defensive stance.

[top]
Circus Shot
Make a shot from beyond the half-court line in any game.

This trophy is all about luck. Keep shooting the ball before you cross over half court and eventually one will go in. It is better to try this with a good 3-point shooter but any player can do it.

[top]
What's Your Point?
Use Points of Emphasis to set your strategy during a time-out.

When a time-out is called by either team, a menu will pop up to allow you to make changes to your team. Go to "Point of Emphasis" and change what you want your team to focus on during Offense, Defense and as a Flex (meaning an additional Offensive or Defensive focus) option. After the end of the time out, your trophy will pop.

[top]
Make The Right Call
Call a play using the 2K Smart Play feature.

While playing any of your quick games, just tap to obtain this easy trophy.

[top]
That's Why He's the King
Shoot 93% in a game with LeBron James (minimum 14 FG attempts).

This trophy is much easier than it first sounds. LeBron is the top player in the league and has very good low post skills.

For you to do this, stay away from taking jumpers with LeBron. Instead, post up near the basket with him or get him moving towards the rim and do a dunk. Once you have met the requirements for this trophy, sit LeBron the rest of the game or make sure you don't take another shot with him. Trophy will pop once the game is complete.

[top]
Melo Out
Make 19 field goals in a game with Carmelo Anthony.

Carmelo Anthony plays for the New York Knicks. He is one of the better shooters in the game. Much like the That's Why He Is The King trophy, have Anthony constantly driving the ball towards the basket for easy layups/dunks. Unlike the other trophy, you don't need a good shooting percentage. Take as many shots as needed to achieve this.

Anthony should be the only one taking shots until he has made his 19 baskets. You can check your stats by pausing the game and going to the stats section. Trophy won't pop until after the game.

This trophy shouldn't be too difficult to complete with 12 min quarters on. If you are still having trouble, you can adjust the in-game sliders.

[top]
How May I Assist You?
Get 21 assists in a game with Chris Paul.

For a player to be credited with an assist, their pass must lead directly to a basket. You will typically earn assist if you score a basket within 2-3 seconds of making the pass. Only time you won't earn assist if if it is a "bad pass" meaning that the ball was tipped by the opponent.

Chris Paul is one of the top passers in the league and can fit the ball into tight areas. You will want to look to make alot of passes into the post and finish with an easy dunk (thankfully you have DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin down low to help you with that). Avoid forcing shots from the 3-point line. Only time a jumper should be taken is if the player is wide open.

You can track your assist total in the stats screen found on the pause menu. If you are having trouble with this trophy, you can set the quarters to 12 minutes and also max out your offensive sliders and decrease the AI defensive sliders.

Stealing the Show
Score 25 points and get 6 steals in one game with Derrick Rose.

Scoring 25 points with Derrick Rose should be no problem. The only difficult part of this trophy will be the steals. Any time a player knocks a ball out of the opponent's hands or tips a pass and your team recovers, that player is credited with a steal. To attempt a steal or defect a pass, tap . Be careful hitting it too many times though as you will commit an intentional foul. Two ways that I have found to increase your chances for steals are:
  1. Bring Rose up on the inbounds. Once it has been thrown in, let the ballhandler just barely get by you. Run up next to them on the ball side and attempt your steal. Typically, you can knock the ball out of their hands 3-4 times a game.
  2. When in the halfcourt, you can play a close suffocating defensive style by holding the . This will bring Rose right onto their hip. They will attempt to shield the ball from you. Here you can attempt to knock the ball out of their hands. Typically it will be knocked into the backcourt. Sometimes the AI doesn't react and other times, they will chase for it. You can dive ahead of them for the ball by double tapping .
If you are still having trouble with this trophy, change to 12 minute quarters while adjusting the game sliders.

Paul Position
Score 37 points and make 9 three-pointers in a game with Paul George.

Getting 37 points from George is simple. The only difficulty with this trophy will be hitting nine 3-pointers. Although George is capable of hitting the shot he can be inconsistent with it. The best way for George to get his 3's is by either driving the lane and passing the ball back to him if his defender leaves or off of fast break chances.

If you are having trouble with this trophy, play 12 minute quarters with adjusted sliders.

Human Torched
Score 22 points in one quarter with Stephen Curry.

Another trophy that sounds more daunting than it is. Curry is one of the best pure shooters in the game and can knock down a shot from anywhere on the court.

For this trophy, playing a fast paced quarter will be a big benefit. Look to get good shots for Curry early in the shot clock. Many teams will have help (meaning another player comes off their man to defend) if you push the ball into the paint. Try to do this on the side with Curry and pass the ball back to him for a good look if his defender helps.

Chrry is also very quick and can get into the pain for his shots.

If you are having difficulty with this trophy, play 12 minutes quarters with adjusted sliders.

Ways to gain fans are:

  • Increase your production. The more points you score, misses you rebound and assists along with other stats go a long way. Breaking team and NBA records are noticed as well.
  • Completing in-game challenges set forth by other NBA players. Make sure to always be checking your social media before games to know what challenges may have been put forth

Sign an endorsement deal worth 5,000 VC or more in MyCAREER.

This will come naturally over time. Your agent will work behind the scenes with different companies and eventually you will be rewarded with a contract worth 5,000 VC provided you meet the requirements that the company wants from you.

I've Had It
Demand a trade in MyCAREER.

You will have meetings with your GM every so often. During these meetings, you will occasionally have the chance to demand a trade when asked how you are doing. Ask to be traded and at the next GM meeting, the GM will ask if you are sure of your decision. Confirm that you are and after the cutscene, your trophy will pop.

Missable

My Every Day Player
Become a starter in the NBA in MyCAREER.

Once you are drafted by your team, you will be labeled a prospect. There won't be much playing time for your player initially but slowly you will be given chances by the coaches. When you are inserted in the game, the coaches will occasionally give you something called a coaching challenge. The more of these challenges you are able to fulfill, the more the coaching staff will come to trust you.

Also, you will be wanting to spend VC on your player to increase their overall rating to make it easier to fulfill challenges and to also have as big a game as possible in your limited action.

Another part that will go a long way in how long it takes to become a starter is how you react with teammates, coaches and the GM. Make sure you always take the humble approach with the coaches and GM and do your part to be a good teammate.

[top]
My All-Star
Be named an NBA All-Star in MyCAREER.

Not an overly difficult trophy and can be done during any season in your career.

Getting named an All-Star is a major accomplishment. To get named, you need to be having a good season (look to average atleast 20 PPG, 5 ASP, and 5 RPG. Anything you can add via blocks, steals and 3 point shooting helps) and also have as many fans as possible.

This trophy pops when the All-Star roster is revealed.

Sick Game, Bro
Score 30 points when playing sick in MyCAREER.

This trophy is a salute to Micheal Jordan who scored 38 points in Game 5 of the 1997 Finals while battling the flu.

Your player will get sick at some point during his career (there is no definitive timeframe for when it will happen). Just score 30 points during the game in which you are sick. Your stats are going to be slightly decreased but 30 points should be easily attainable.

[top]
Quiet the Haters
Disprove a legend who calls you out on Social Media in MyCAREER.

There are a total of 15 Legends that can follow you on social media. They will follow you after doing a specific action that they accomplished during their careers. Once you have a Legend following you, they may call you out saying that you can do a certain feat within the next game. You will know when you are being called out by a Legend because it will pop up as a challenge on your social media. Like other trophies within MyCAREER, this trophy can happen at any time. If you do not get it on your first chance, you will have a chance to get it in the future.

Missable

Face of the Brand
Beat out Jackson Ellis for an endorsement deal in MyCAREER.

Near the All-Star break, your agent will notify you that there is a company or two that are looking to sign an endorsement with you. They just have one caveat: Beat out Jackson Ellis for it. Beating him out will be in one of two ways: Score more points than him or have your team win at the Rookie Showcase. Just ensure that you know the critea so you don't miss this opportunity.

Note: While playing, I was in the All-Star game as well as the Futures game on All-Star weekend. I played the All-Star game and never had a chance to complete in the Futures game but was awarded the trophy for beating out Ellis anyways.

Streak Buster
End an opposing team's win streak of 3 or more games in the Park.

The Park is a section of the game where players take their MyPlayer to compete with against other player's creations. In The Park, there are courts for 2v2, 3v3 and one court for 5v5. While at the loading screen, you can find out what teams have a winning streak as there will be a small fire symbol with the number of wins next to each court.

The games are played to 21 with the winner having to win by 2. Baskets count for 1 and 2 points respectfully.
You can check other player's overall by holding the button. The overall of your player conincides with their overall in your career. Be warned that alot of highly rated players won't play with a low overall player.

Glitch Warning: When checking overalls, you will most likely see players that are a 25 overall. If you see this, that means their online player has glitched. You should check regularly with other players to ensure that your player has not glitched at all. Also, you can tell that your player has glitched when in game. Your player will be extremely slow, stamina depletes quickly, and your player won't make a shot. Unfortunately, if this happens, the only thing you can do is create a brand new player.
