    Are the game sliders suppose to be on default? Or simulation?
    I like them on sim pretty sure they are on default though. It's up to who runs the league but should probably wait till next season to change that setting if you are going to.

    Put a hand in his face?

    The only way to take away threes is to get your hands up and chase players off the 3 point line. Playing soft won't work on a good shooter.

    Ya zone isn't smart. All you can do is human guard that works best. Changing to sim will help lower the 3pt % especially contested ones. Some games you can play great defense and they still make shots nothing you can do when that happens.

    Yea... I just tried mixing it up as much as possible but when kirilenko goes 7-8 from 3 I knew that wouldn't be a good thing...

    Those are three easy ways to give up open shots. Zones and traps are meant to force turnovers, not make guys miss.

    There's a reason Durant gets 20 shots a game despite being the only talented scorer on my team, and yet somehow 15 of them are wide the **** open. Keep moving the ball around for 20 seconds against a zone and he always breaks free, like clockwork.

    Everybody wants to take the easy way out on defense. Play as far off the ball as possible, run some trap or zone and think the computer will do all the work for you. Doesn't work that way.

    This one game last week was ridiculous. The guy was clearly controlling the center, Durant was clearly getting waaaay too much space coming off of screens, and he just let it happen. Open 3. Open 3. No adjustments. Kept waiting for the CPU to close out, but unless the defensive awareness is off the charts, you're not going to close out on Durant from 23 feet out in time to bother the shot. I do the same thing with Kyle Korver and Matt Bonner against zones. Nobody closes out. Ever.

    A tip: if you're telling Ray Allen or Jamal Crawford to play tight defense or deny the ball, at the end of the day you're still asking terrible defenders to do things they aren't capable of doing. Theyre going to miss passes they should intercept, and close out 3 seconds too late on open shots.

    I had Leonard and Irving up tight on Williams and Kobe... They hit shots over my defenders... Just gotta keep pressuring...

    Irving is not a good defender.

    When someone has the game in hand, must they jack up a three and try to steal the ball from 85 feet when I inbound? That's really tacky IMO. Just dribble the clock out.
    With about 50 seconds left I think you were still in reach and I just never looked at the clock again to notice that I could have run it out.

    My trade that has been accepted has "only" 18 hours and 14 minutes left to go for vetting, I mean, until it disappears entirely again....

    There was no other option than to have 24 ****ing hours of vetting? Is 2K really that stupid?

    Also, I have two free agents that I am trying to withdraw my offer from. It says press a to withdraw this offer, but when I do, nothing happens. Can anyone else cancel those for me? James Jones, Malcolm Lee.

    My apologies; I accidentally vetoed the SAC/CHI trade when I was looking at it. Although now that it's an arbitration, doesn't this mean the commissioner can actually make history go through more quickly? Sorry either way.

    Now that I think about it, if that's true, can somebody veto my trade so the commish can push mine through quicker?

    Also, strangely, I just had two other free agents almost immediately accept my contract offers. Yet the other two that are stuck that I can't even withdraw my offer from have sat there for days.

    I'm in the exact same situation. Trying to figure out if somebody signed him or its a glitch.

    if that ends up happening then we know how to bypass all that time and someone veto my trade offer lol... I'm thinking that if the signing doesn't go through then they declined it but same as trades it doesn't notify u

    Oh and has anyone looked at the all-star votes yet? I'm really confused because it has rondo with the most votes for guards in the east with 9.7 points and assists per game, but Westbrook has has more ppg (21.9) and almost as many apg (9.7). Is it because rondo has played more games, 23 to Westbrooks 15, because that's the only thing I'm seeing out of all of this.

    I haven't been back online since this morning. Were you able to push the trade through?

    The trades don't get sent to me... They have a virtual arbitration that decides if the deal is fair or not... Unfortunately I have no control at all in trades...

    Maybe its based in totals instead of per game numbers.

    It's awkward to be getting on a roll with the roster you have while you're waiting multiple days a time for a trade to go through that will significantly alter it.....

    I stopped playing until my trades are done so I'll have some game time to get used to it. I think i only have three left.

    Curry is a beast. Lots of teams won't have anyone to guard him. Is gallo going to be your starting 4 though?

    Nope but from the trends looks like if it doesn't clear in 24hrs more than likely its not clearing arbitration

    You would think an automated system wouldn't need a waiting period.
