I've turned Def Awareness up to 100, I'm noticeably not scoring as easily. This has caused a few more turnovers on my part which I love, previously I was only averaging around 6 or 7 turnovers a game. Due to more turnovers I've raised ball handling, passing and hands back up to the values you have on this slider set (I had previously lowered them in an attempt to cause more turnovers for myself but it didn't work as well as raising the Def AWR).
Also my shooting percentages have lowered from 50-54 to 44-48 by raising Def AWR, my 3pt percentage has lowered from 42-45 to 36-40. I think this is due to them playing me much closer on defense, thus the contested shot slider of 30 kicks in a lot more. Regardless I still have lowered all shooting sliders down by 2 from your slider set, I lowered 3pt by 3 though because my 3pt % was off the charts. (Inside 18, Close 33, Mid 43, 3pt 44)
Now even though I was scoring less and at lower percentages I still had the issue of my defense being too good, the CPU struggled to score against me, so I raised their Offensive AWR to 75. They now score much more fluid and often and can keep up with me score-wise. Because of this I'm now having close competitive games and it's fun to play again. I was getting to the point I was about to quit because the game had become too easy.
I'm now in the NBA Finals in MyLeague and we're tied 1-1 and both games came down to the last few minutes, in fact game 2 went into overtime. I don't think I've had an overtime game in literally months. It was intense! But I did lose. haha
To answer your question, I do not manually offensive rebound, I do manually defensive rebound a lot though. Between Alex Len & Kristaps Porzingis I have two giants in the post and they get a ton of rebounds, I've lowered both offensive and defensive rebounds by 2 and I've lowered blocks by 3 and I still get too many rebounds and blocks for my preference. Both Len & Zinger average almost 3 BPG and that's a full 82 game season average. They also both average around 9 RPG during the season. Which individually doesn't sound like a ton but when you combine it that's 18 RPG from just two guys, then I have Marvin Williams on the wing who's a hybrid SF/PF and gets 6-7 RPG as well.
In the end, I'm now pretty satisfied with the CPU offense & defense, but I'm still working on the rebounding issue.
