    Phoenix struggled to hit three-point shots against me, by the way. I feel like I played pretty decent defense, but he missed some open shots, too. I'm assuming the sliders have something to do with it.

    Including my simmed games, I have a lot to go. But as I said I hope to make up some ground Friday.

    Yes. I just finished the game about 20 minutes ago.

    Ill play whatever. If we want to do sim that's fine by me. I was routinely holding opponents in the %40-45 range under the defatult settings, so I imagine this will only improve things on my end.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    It dropped the success rate from 50 to 47 from default to sim, I noticed that I couldn't just come down and take 3's with young the way it was before because it had to be a good shot not just chucking shots, I'm good either way tho.

    He took 37 3's and also played his starters the whole game, that style of play is unrealistic and by setting it to sim will make it less "cheese" on that end IMO

    My first game with my complete post-trades roster was a success versus the Phoenix Suns. I'm no longer bad on either side of the ball. Nor am I dominant on either side now, but I'm good enough to compete.

    Looks like my style is going to have to be spacing and then exploiting one on one matchups with Ty, Iggy, Evan, and ZBo. Either score or attack, then react to help D as needed. Hopefully it will be difficult to stop all of them.
    Glad I can help you with that... I haven't got to play a game with my new team yet, but hopefully will this weekend.

    Lol this is good, but I made a bunch of trades to try to address the fact everyone was hitting tons of 3s and my team was not equipt for that, now they are and I took hits on defense, so we will see how this works out for me... PS, I am hoping to get atleast 3 lottery picks in this next draft... I need some stars if I am to compete in the future.

    Also I have about 8 games left, but I will need a few resets...

    Also thanks for the change of speed in the games, for me it is way better, and makes it easier to get out to teams that do a bunch of pull up 3's in transition, really had little chance to defend those before, atleast for me. Also the gameplay is more fun, but that is just my perspective.

    You can still hit 3's but have to be good shots not the come down jack up a 3 and goes in, that a till happens but not as much. I noticed I had to run some sort of offense to get more quality shots. Also your starters can't play the whole game so when they are tired quicker then the shot % will go down accordingly

    You really needed a point guard, and Rubio is a nice point guard. Everything blossomed with him last off season aside from his on-ball defense. But he's got a very high steal rating, he's a great passer, he can finish, he can shoot, he can really dribble the ball, he's got good size. Tough to give him up, but when two of your best players play the same position, something had to give, and I'm thrilled that I got to spread that talent around to a position of weakness with Evans, who actually is okay as a BACKUP point guard, but I wouldn't want him as my starting point.

    This will allow me to keep both Orlando Johnson and Brandon Rush; Rush backs up Evans, Evans backups Lawson, and that lets Orlando play backup 2 behind Iggy.

    I'm content with just about everything except my backup bigs now. Morris will serve as a stretch four, but he can't do much else. Mozgov is serviceable, but that's about all I can say about him. Hopefully I can use my MLE next off season to get a better backup at one of those two spots.

    Yeah, I was jut practicing with Rubio yesterday and getting between A abd B+ on my shots, but too often he was missing shots, not sure if this is just because of him or what. But I think it will be fine and I will adjust accordingly.

    Yes, that is crazy a good defender proud to hold a player to 45% that is just crazy unrealistic. Good defense should result in less than 40% from 3.

    Yeah I think it was a good deal for both, I had to add Henson in the trade for Morris because I basically would have only had 3 guys that play the 4 or 5 if not, lol. Also I liked Morris as a scoring option, he has a pretty decent all around shot, but yeah not a whole bunch more.

    One thing to keep in mind about taking three point shots (especially if we're in sim mode now) is your player's tendencies. Take Evan Turner. Yes, he has an 85 3pt rating, but his tendency to actually take them is something around 15, which means if I just keep bombing away with him, even if I'm open, odds are that not too many are going to go in. The game has those stats for a reason; they factor into what does and doesn't work.

    Also in practice mode it shows their hot zones in case anyone didnt know for instance if a player is more likely to hit a corner 3 than a straight away 3

    Yes the same computer team that has been settled with ****** contracts from human players and no draft picks. The team isn't that good.

    Plus I missed the original draft, the second draft, And free agency. Wasn't really my team

    I really hate playing the CPU. Too much garbage mounts up (by the programming of the game) to try to force them into winning that it makes me sick.

    But I still (for now, anyway) choose to play them because I want my record to reflect what I tried to do, not a random sim result. But it is ridiculous.
