it is. it's stupid how they expect you to compete with top draft picks early on when your overall rating is like 40. you're put at such an unfair advantage and makes the whole thing feel like work instead of a game. i was a MyPlayer fiend last year despite how hard it was and i was hoping they'd improve it gameplay-wise and core mechanics-wise, but it's all the same.
and it's a lot less lenient. pretty much if your guy ever scores on you, you might as well restart the game. but if you make a 3-pointer or score well, you literally get no credit. i'm pretty much only doing a.ssociation this year and no MyPlayer, but last year i did all MyPlayer and never did a.ssociation so that should tell you something.
i disagree. improving is the only thing that makes it fun. i was a 99 in every single stat before the end of my third season and that s**t got REAL boring. if u wanna run with a superstar CAP just do a.ssociation with player lock
