As odd as this sounds, I'd say keep both until the next set of legends are hinted on Twitter, this way you can sell either or before prices go erratic.

For example if the Blazers are next week's legends, you could sell one of them for a chance at Drexler. It depends on the team revealed and what position the better players fit in. Personally, if I managed to pull Pippen (the feels), I would've kept him, Wilkins, and McGrady at the same time.

One thing I noticed about the Auction House is that once the prices are lowered for a certain player, and if more of the same player go for around that much, he usually stays within that set range. Since McGrady has been sold around the 70k-80k range, anything higher will usually expire.

I might keep pippen over tmac since his defense is 99. I have to start wilkins as he just dunks over everybody and that helps win games. will decide who will start between Rodman and kemp

That is the drawback with Pippen right now, the inability to dunk.

Does anybody else have an issue where they put items on auction, but they still appear in your sell pile? I've been trying to sell two Larry Nance cards for about 4 days, but every time I put them up for auction, they remain in my sell pile, so I'm not sure if they're actually up for auction or not.

Also, does anyone know what the GM Level 1 and 2 packs give you? I only need to complete a head to head game for level 1, and build an all point guard team for level 2.

I haven't noticed that, but I have experienced an issue where items I've won won't show up in the Won pile straight away, and I have to cycle through all the screens before the items load properly.

I get the same Hong as Andrew where I have to go to lost and back to won to see my cards

I don't recall anything special from either GM 1 or 2. All I remember is being a little disappointed with pack 2.

What's cool about playing with curry is that I saw his celebration animation has him spitting out his mouthpiece. First time I saw him do this at the line in 2k16 my mind was blown

I saw that the other day. It's cool that they're starting to add little details like that to NBA Live's celebrations. Obviously not the most important aspect of the game, but at the same time, the small things add to the experience. Touches like that emphasise that a game is "current gen", and a far cry from the first proper 3D games with static face textures.

Even if it's a small detail, it's a welcoming addition in my book.

So apparently the reason for my items still showing in my sell pile after selling them was created by slow internet speeds. Today when I booted the game up again, I was now able to see my cards being sold in the correct category this time. A little bit later, I sniped a 93 overall Garnett for 11k, and he's a beast on the defensive end.

Edit: Tomorrow will feature the Spurs legends

Looks like they've fixed the issue with Pippen not being able to dunk.

I've been trying to sell him this past week, but I'm not sure why ges not selling. It might be because I'm asking too much, or there just simply isn't very many people walking around with that many coins on them

Been asking 350-400k but I don't want to sell him for less than he's worth since he's one of the best cards in the game so I don't mind holding on to him.

Yeah, folks might just be short of coins. The Auction House doesn't seem as active as it was in NBA Live 15, when I last played a lot of LUT.

So I pulled two Elliot cards when opening the packs, then sold one to get Gervin. Honestly, those two are not bad at all. Elliot has very similar stats to Glen Rice, so I'll hold on to him until he eventually goes for about 140k for being Three Point Death material (the AH isn't aware of this yet). Gervin is an excellent finisher, decent rebounder, and a good defender. And yes, they can both dunk.

I agree that Robinson's stats are underwhelming, especially since Magic Shaq is faster, and has slightly better rebounding.

Current lineup I'm going with.

I lowered the asking price for Scottie Pippen after seeing him being posted for about 250,000. So I asked for 225 and I got it hoping that I'd be able to roll it over into one of the cheap Glen Rice cards that I was seeing but I couldn't find any. So I'll just save the coins for now until there's something that I really want.

Someone had mentioned throwback Master cards for current players and now they have one for what I think is an odd choice in JR Smith.

And because of the master challenges, the prices for Rockets, Nuggets, and Warriors players skyrocketed. I even see bronze rated players from those teams going for around 5k.

So I managed to earn 69k already, and this time, I will save the coins if there's a team that comes out with uninteresting legends (unless it's the Celtics or Blazers).

I should've saved the NBA points I bought, but I went for the 2-for-1 packs to beef up my squad. I'll just keep grinding, and hopefully have enough built up for when there's a Legends pack I really want.

Now, I usually check the ratings of the legends before I consider buying the packs after the Spurs legends, so if this week's legends aren't impressive, I might keep saving up so I can grab one from the AH (possibly Pippen or the Big O).

Can't say much about the Spurs legends since I don't have all of them, but since Robinson is basically Magic O'Neal with inferior speed, I'll pass on him. Gervin and Elliot are good legends to get from the AH for cheap right now, especially since Elliot's stats are very similar to Glen Rice.

I also consider the risk of buying a pack and not getting who I want and how OK I am with the other possibilities. I was okay with any of the Magic players and anyone but grant on the bulls packs. If there's only one person of 4 that I want and the others suck, I'd probably consider just getting that person out of the AH

Absolutely. In that regard, I feel pretty lucky to have snagged Pippen with the second pack.

Postby shinron15 on Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:55 am

I would sell McGrady to get him, but that won't even be enough for Pippen, since I currently have 70k with me. On top of that, I only have two Franchise Hero challenges left, so there's not that much room for grinding before I'm restricted with how much I can earn.

So If I sell McGrady, as well as Cavs Kemp (I have Hero Giannis, so I don't really need this Kemp anymore), I should have about 170k afterwards.

Also, on a side note, the Lakers uniforms need to be updated in Ultimate Team. When the game first game out, the white uniform was the default home, and the gold was the default away. Several patches ago swapped the purple (away), and gold (home) uniforms to correct the mistake, however, since Ultimate Team runs on previous rosters, you can only wear the white uniform for home, and the gold for away.

Yes, I have both and were very happy with the color swap as my team wears gold at home and purple away now. I'm glad when they changed it back, it did not affect my team.

Putting Mac and my Archibald cards for auction in an attempt to get Pippen.

I put McGrady up for 73k, and I put Archibald up for 49k if anybody wants those two.

That's odd, since every time I look in the AH, he goes for around 80-95k, sometimes even in the 100k range.

Edit: Somebody just purchased McGrady for the 73k just now lol. Now I need somebody to get Tiny

Hmm I had checked earlier this week, maybe it's gone up. I might keep tmac but like pippen he might go to waste on the bench since I'm starting Wilkins

Not having McGrady is fine for me for now. I can have Scottie at the 2 for mismatches, and Nique at the 3. Gervin is a decent replacement for Mac anyway, minus the inferior midrange and speed; but Gervin is tied with the highest finish rating (as well as the ability to dunk), and superior rebounding and defending attributes.

Bad Boys and Rip Hamilton are tomorrow's legends based on the twitter hints. Also, has anyone noticed the lack of point guards currently on the AH? I only see 8 on auction, with four of them being Penny Hardaway. I don't even know if lowering the price on Archibald will help, since I usually put him up for 50k (everyone else puts him up for like 60k), and he hasn't sold for about two days. I'm considering on lowering him to 40k, but I don't know if that's a good idea.

Same, but as a Showtime Lakers fan

I will take a look at the rodman card to see if it's worth going for. Not sure if it could be any better than his bulls card.

His Pistons card has a lower overall, but has one point higher in speed and finishing (but one point less in rebounding and defense). It actually looks similar to Sonics Kemp's stats. Looking at the cards, they're honestly disappointing. Laimbeer doesn't have a single green stat, Hamilton has good stats, but even though he has a higher overall, Master JR Smith has better stats compared to him, Zeke is fast and has great dribbling, and decent finishing, but he only has a 90 for defense, and while Dumars has excellent defense with a 97 rating, he only has an 83 for speed, so faster ballhandlers can exploit that disadvantage.

Archibald had success in being sold, and now I have about 211k on deck. Only thing I need now is for somebody to auction Pippen so I can get him. I've seen Pippen now go for the high 190k-low 200k range, so hopefully I can snipe one in that range.

Just completed every Hero Challenge, and received the Hero Westbrook card. Unfortunately, by the time I reached over 200k, I see Pippen going for the mid to high 200k range again.

Challenges on superstar are the cheesiest things I've ever witnessed in a basketball video game. I have clips saved where players get called for fouls on layups even though the player that got called is standing at the perimeter. I have videos of CPU adjusting blocked dunks mid air and getting shoulder height with the rim for a layup. That whole experience was awful.

On a more positive note, hopefully we get good all star content. Maybe something like a Larry Bird 3 point champion of a Vince Carter Dunk Contest Champion.

It's nice to get superstar difficulty once in a while. The games have become a bit of a chore since they're so easy

I missed out on Glen Rice under 100k but I just put in a bid for one at 105k

I think servers just went down. I finished the pistons challenge and I keep getting a connection error

I just lost a bid to Pippen (it didn't show me that I lost until a bit later), so that sucks. The only other one I see is going for 250k, but I don't want to sell another legend to get him, and I can't grind the hero challenges anymore.

Success in acquiring Pippen!

I also purchased a Spud Webb card for 14k; Webb is a beast at finishing at the basket because his small size makes him harder to block his drives.

Pippen is insane. He can play Lockdown D, one of the quickest players in the game, amazing finisher, good rebounder, and a decent three point shooter when wide open. My only gripe about him is that while he can dunk, it's not as much as somebody like Nique. If Pippen can throw down like he can in 2K11, he's the best finisher in the game confirmed.

Congrats on getting Pip! That's shaped up to be an awesome retro lineup.

In actual in-game use, is the Cavaliers Shawn Kemp comparable to the Sonics Shawn Kemp? I've been thinking of just bidding for the Cavs Kemp since it is much cheaper. Thanks.

For budget purposes early on, yes. Cavs Kemp is still pretty fast with an 88 speed, and can still play good defense. His rebounding and post ratings are basically the same, so all you're really losing is a bit of speed, defense, and a bit less of high flying dunking. Of course he's not as good, but if you want him for cheaper, he certainly gets the job done. Later on, you can complete the Eastern Conference Hero challenge to earn an 86 Hero Antetokounmpo card, so if you have about 70k by then, you can sell Cavs Kemp and upgrade to the Sonics version.

I'm currently loving the lineup that I have. Every player has at least an 80 in defense, so defensive breakdowns aren't much of a concern, as well as a sold offensive game.

I have the sonics Kemp and he is a monster. I play him at C and he outruns everyone on fast breaks. You can find him for 70k or even less now which is annoying because I had paid 149k for mine

So I faced the rockets on superstar difficulty again after starting the master Westbrook series. I am loving the challenge the rockets give me on superstar they made a 14-0 run in the second half and I had to claw my way back into the game. Kuzma hits this crazy clutch guarded corner three he had no business hitting to send it into overtime where I won by 8.

I lost out on two Rice cards for being stingy and not paying the extra 10k to buy it now lol. I guess I'm not in a rush and am willing to wait

Ive been scooping really cheap cards people are collecting for masters series and flipping them for a small profit. Occasional ladder cards, but mostly thunder, rockets, wizards, nuggets, and warriors cards for under 1000

Hey Q, I managed to get a Sonics Kemp for 55k! He is indeed a beast down low. I just can't still consistently hit the jump shot due to the shot timing. I just wish we can change the shooting settings in LUT to player rating. I'm so bad that even my Ray Allen cannot hit the three point shot consistently
