NBA 2k13 MyCareer tips?
 

 
I just copped 13 yesterday and I'm about to smash my head against a wall. My questions are MyCareer related.

1. How do you play defense? I've never been good at it even though I had 12 and now it seems I'm getting burnt even harder by opponents.

2. The shot timing: I can't get it right for the life of me and I'm laying so many bricks cats think I'm a freemason.

Lil' help would be appreciated.

Personally, I started off making my player a scorer. Then I boosted up his mid range and shooting in traffic and consistency as high as I could. From there I was knocking down shots nicely, couldn't do much else though. As I gained more vc everything else started coming like adding lay up n short range. Mainly you want that damn consistency though

On Defense.. L and R are NOT your friend. those buttons will get u beat all the time. only use L when ur opponent tries to drive... u get in front of him and use L to jam him. NEVER hold L or R unless ur being posted up. Also.. I HATE how much u get penalized when you get scored on.. its too much. i cant even gain that amount back if i steal it and get a fast break highlight dunk. that makes no sense to me.

fu*king game also will get Offensive rebounds on u all day long... its frustrating but there isnt much u can do about that. as far as offense it depends what playstyle you chose. i ALWAYS choose athletic. im about halfway in to my season... and i realized early on that scoring is not gonna be my strng suit. so i picked up the Dimer perk and have been feeding n*ggas tha rock. Im averaging 12 ast. per game and with number like that we are the 3rd seed in the west .!


so if u chose any playstyle besides scoring/shooter, then pass the rock, get a.ssists, set screens, grab boards when u can, and box out.




















i fu*king hate VC.

if u want to earn vc just play offline a.ssociation its like 600 per a game

i never purchased vc...

with the shot timing just pay attention to the bottom of your player they will have a little light that goes off under them when they reach their shooting point.

but shot release comes easy because u can feel when its time to release

I started doing what you said Bdeazy about the L button and it's working a lot better for me. What exactly is boxing out? And how do you do it more consistently? VC is playing in the other modes, right? I don't really have any interest in any of the other modes but I'll give 'em a shot to help my guy out.

L and R are definitely your friend on defense. Especially if you have great onball defense. I would get that up to about 90 first. Using the L buttons helps out alot because it does whatever is best in that situation. If you're trying to close out, all you have to do is press L while running to your man and he will contest everytime netting your good shot defense. You never have to press the jump button using L while guarding your man.

I just made a 6'9 205 scoring SG and got 29 pts during the rookie showcase; now that I'm not getting burnt every touch the game's pretty fun.

play the game (quick match, a.ssociation, Online, Watever) for about a month. Get used to player movement and tendencies and sh*t. Find a pro whos shot you like and buy their animation, then use all the VC from the other game modes on your player. I had a little over 10,000 VC before i actually started a player. I've never bought VC, and i dont simulate games.

Your best bet is to Max out your OFF and DEF Awareness First

Currently im 82 OVR, about 5 games away from the Allstar Break.


6'4 PG 3pt Specialist drafted by Portland.

Edit: Just got selected to the dunk contest.. I may have 15 dunks on the year

this is the most frustrating game I've ever played, and after hearing about 2k's keeping-games-close policy, I retired.

and CPU had no mercy on me usually winning by double digits

or maybe I'm just garbage

I used exploits fu*k yall

Tips: keep your teammate grade up at all time; use turbo in bursts not holding too long, trust me; play D the whole 90 feet on your guy so the ball is less likely to go to him (unless you a big man); do not jump or act like blocking or fall for pump fakes, your better off staying close to your player on the ground when he puts a shot up for it to miss, and most successful place to actually block is under the basket, that's it;

you really don't need to use ANY turbo on defense (as long as you get back);

when running towards the paint (make sure you have enough room), double tap the shoot button (square on Ps3) and holding left trigger for eurostep; same thing but double tap the circle button (PS3) for spin move to the basket; adjust each move in the paint with a quick third tap shoot for pump fake, and /or hold it to just shoot; you can pass out of these moves last second as long as there is a clear path to the player you want to pass to;

using turbo in short bursts and combo of spin and cross overs will temporarily help get by your man, but you have to make your move quick for it to be a high percentage shot.

I was givin tips from a PG/SG stand point

oh and I never shot jumpers cuz I never got timing down, only had beast mode moves in the paint easy layups with pump fakes, easy dimes within the paint, fouls, adjusted shots and all that good stuff.

@L3G3ND, that's something I just found out about after some trial and error. I was originally drafted #6 to the Blazers but after 9 games and 6 losses I had enough and asked for a trade to the Nets. I didn't get it but I did get sent to the Clippers where after 4 games I went from 6th man to starter. As a SG I maxed d on-ball and saw that I was able to keep the teammate score manageable. Right now I'm rated 66 overall. I think awareness is where I'll go next. Anyone seen any benefits from the shoes? I thought certain shoes would give you stat bonuses?

word, i've never paid for VC....also when you are playing games in offline a.ssociation mode during halftime or end of quarters they bring up 'Pick and Win' pick the winners of each days games and get points for each game you get correct.

they add more points for playing time, wins, games played, achievements and all types of sh*t i think i have about 19,000+ VC just sitting around until i get back into My Career mode.
