This year’s My Career mode in NBA 2K16 MT Coins has seen a lot of heat for the questionable Spike Lee adaptation. Many people say that it’s absolutely horrible, some say that the game mode has been ruined and, well, most don’t like to be called “Frequency Vibrations”. But we all have to go through the pain and eventually enjoy the awesome mode which is My Career.
Creation is pretty straightforward. Make a center with prototypical height and weight — somewhere around 7 feet and 260 pounds. The height will make rebounding and defending a breeze. You could go taller, but it will limit your player’s agility. Your ability to move will be important, so no taller than 7 feet.
Go with the inside scoring focus. You will never — ever — be shooting from outside of 10 feet with this build. You won’t ever need to. Most of your points will come off free dunks.
The storybook years
The Spike Lee storyline is a fun change of pace, but it throws a pretty big wrench into your created character’s career. He will not really be able to grow and thrive until year two, when the tale is over.
However, you can set yourself up on an easier path to success.
As a 7-footer, you will be unstoppable in high school and college. You can easily score every point, grab most rebounds, and rack up a few blocks per game. I suggest joining an NBA team that needs a center.
For instance, I intentionally played badly during one college game to drop my player’s draft stock below the top 10. The Indiana Pacers, a team without a great center, drafted me at No. 11 in the first round and played me quite a bit during my rookie season.
This isn’t mandatory, but it helps. During my first few MyCareer playthroughs, I had a point guard and a shooting guard that each played about 5 minutes to 10 minutes per game. A rookie season where you average 6 points per game will tank your career statistical averages.
After your rookie season, you will select whichever team you want. Pick one that needs a center.
Building your player
The key to this build is leveling up the athletic skill set. It is far cheaper than any of the offensive skill sets, and your size will get you all the rebounds and blocked shots you need. You have no reason to waste virtual currency, the points earned while playing, on those attributes.
Athletics will help you move around the court and stay in the game for longer, and it improves your screening and dunking abilities. Virtually all of your points will come from setting hard screens and sprinting to the basket, so being able to do both well is important.
The second priority is inside scoring. You will eventually need to score from the post, and inside scoring can help you do that. It gets a little pricey in the later rounds, but it is necessary for when good defensive teams stop your pick-and-roll game.
Add a few points into outside scoring and defense along the way. Although I forbid you from shooting jump shots, the outside scoring skillset increases free throw ability. You’ll need that. The defensive attribute buffs will keep you from being destroyed by the opposing center.
