With all the GM upgrades, all your rookies end up 94+ by his second season. what I did is trade them before their rookie contract is up for the top picks and continue to stock on picks. Basically I have 3-8 1st rounders every year, because of having all the upgrades it's a team full of 90-something players on rookie contracts, and my team loses maybe 1 or 2 games in the entire season, if that.
As for the bitching, just ignore them if you win. I ignore trade requests for seasons and their morale doesn't drop below 90 until I trade away the entire team for a new group of picks.
There's potential in the game mode, but it's just not well thought through. Kind of like all of 2K's modes.
Yeah, so what do I do? I put myself in this fantasy mode where my team will develop a young star and we'll go through the journey together. It gets really fun especially when you control everything in your team. It's so much fun.
Pick a small market team like the Bucks, develop Giannis & make him an allstar. Break records, give him 40 mpg to avg. 26ppg. Do something with it, it's your own world, create a legacy. It's ****ing awesome. I know this is gonna sound ridiculous, but I come up with insidehoops, people posting threads about my star player/s in my head & it's so fun to just sit there and think about it.
i.e. what my player achieved last game & in my head, people would talk about it.
And there's another one where I brought the players from the 2000s in the league. And let's say KG came into the league at age 14 or 15, well, in my own little world (another dimension lol), you can enter the NBA at any age & KG was good enough to play. I made this up for a reason, I edited their age to where they'll be able to play for a couple more years. KG at 38 to 30 years old. I did this to Ray Ray, Paul Pierce, can't do it to Kobe, he entered the league at 18 (?) & if I push his birth date forward, it'll erase a few years of his record for some reason & that'll completely mess up my fantasy. Edited the rookie Laker Kobe to a Kobe JR & dropped him off at the free agency pool (Can't edit out his record, draft year record & stuff). But, so, now he has a son.
All you need is a little bit of imagination, okay, you need to be insane to come up with this.
Brought back 3rd year Jordan, Stockton, Malone--made all of them rookies. Brought in Mougsey Bogues, but I over edited his rating to 90+, so I removed him. Didn't wanna deal with it. Gary Payton, Robert Horry, DFISH. Looking to bring back Magic Johnson, but this time, I'll move his overall rating to 70+ and i'll come up with something, R1 P1, assuming the Lakers for the #1 overall draft pick last year, something, I'll come up with something & I'll trade for him. Edit him to 70 rating but keep his POTENTIAL AT 99. Develop him & just go crazy with it in your own imagination once he becomes a star. I get a high from that. HAHAHAHA
