So the 93 Overall is a permanent card?

Yep, once you transform your 90 overall, the 93 overall card is yours to keep. I recommend searching the AH for the best Playstyle to transform your player into.

Another good thing to know is that every game you complete in the Team LeBron/Stephen challenges, you're given special Gold or Elite players with a guaranteed overall from 80-89. From the games before challenging the All-Star teams, I got players like Towns, Love, Porzingis, and Klay Thompson for free. So along the way of unlocking the 90 overall transformable player, you can upgrade your team for free.

As intriguing as LeBron or AD are, I didn't want to risk getting Durant or Irving so I went with team curry and got the same giannis card as you. He is a match-up nightmare. It's not really fair.

I also got to test the master Westbrook and man he is unreal. He's blowing by lillard and getting to the rim and finishing with ease.

I got all star Westbrook in the packs so I'm selling that one. Got Jamal Murray and Larry Nance so I'm selling those too. The oladipo card is pretty good so I'll keep that.

Can I now try the team LeBron challenges and get another card or do they limit you to one?

Yep, you can get one more card after defeating LeBron's team, and it's impossible to get a duplicate player. This will be your final card that you can transform, but the good news is that if it's not the player you want, you can put him on auction after he's transformed.

Lmao that crazy LeBron card isn't good enough to start on your team.

You bought that all star curry card? How much? I was considering going for that but I already have master Curry and I can't sell that one so I'm stuck

I might wait til Thursday to see what legends they have before deciding what to do with my coins. I have about 120,000 after selling pippen and buying Rice. Maybe I should get another pippen or one of these all star cards

Only All-Star player I purchased was LeBron. Curry was my first transformation card, and Giannis was my second. If you get All-Star Curry, you won't regret his shooting, along with playing like the real Steph, but keep your Master Curry card (along with Hero Klay, assuming you have him), since the All-Star cards are not eligible for the Master Thompson challenge, since both of them are considered from the All-Star teams, and not Golden State.

I actually never got to try James yet, but imo, Giannis is better than Nique for me. Even though his 3pt rating is weaker, Giannis can still finish over the defenders, as well as having the ability to block shots, which really helps on the higher difficulties and in clutch situations.

Edit: I just played a game with James on Superstar, and he doesn't feel like a downgrade from Nique at all. In fact, you can barely tell he has a lower 3pt rating, as he can still get excellent releases when wide open, and like Giannis, he can block shots. Plus I can put him at the 1 like Giannis :lol:

Hi shinron, is it possible to buy heroes in the auction house? Would it be possible to shortcut the legend master challenge by buying at the auction house the required heroes? For example, can I buy Giannis and Anthony Davis to meet the East and West heroes requirement to start the legend master challenge? Thanks again brother.

Sadly, no; the only Hero card purchasable in the Auction House is Russell Westbrook. For Davis and Giannis, you actually have to complete the challenges to unlock them.

So playing Lebron's team, I lost focus and they made a run on me and I lost. So many mismatches with AD at the 4 and KD at the 2. Tried again and got Durant :x turned him into a wing defender, which actually makes him comparable to Giannis. Giannis actually started burning me as his 3pt rating is too low to hit anywhere but the corner. I don't like KD, but I might have to sell Giannis instead. Not sure what I want to do with those cards yet, as I don't really need either of them. Debating on whether I should buy lebron who I could've had for 100k gold (which is basically everything I have right now) but I would happily trade/sell the other cards to make up for it. I bought a Donovan Mitchell all star card for 5k because it seemed like I was playing aginst him in every game and he kept killing me on the drives.

Speaking of which, the updates are cool, as it introduced the all star court and jerseys to the game. They updated some portraits and lonzo has updated hair. the game is tougher now that they nerfed inside shots. There's no payoff for getting steals with Payton now, as I missed two fast break layups off of steals. Wilkins was missing a few layups he would've made before. Unfortunately, it hasn't seemed to nerf the computer's ability to make layups so the game is a little more difficult to play now.

Anybody else notice it takes forever to connect to the server and update the game now? It takes forever Loading up LUT or after finishing a game

Sounds like buying LeBron and selling those other cards would be preferable. You should be able to get your coins back.

The tuning is definitely noticeable, but I found I was able to force the CPU into quite a few misses. That was just a quick exhibition though, and I don't believe it was on Superstar difficulty. I'd imagine the AI is a bit cheesier on that setting.

So I wound up buying a Pippen card for 120k after your feedback about him being better now that he's dunking. I tested him out against the Celtics legends and he laid the ball up 3 times out of 3 attempts lol. I got a Brown card from the challenge.

I think I will get a LeBron all star card once I sell giannis which seems to be a bit difficult. I think I set the price too high so I'll try 60 or 70k

I also snagged a lillard all star card for 3500. I've been wanting to get a lillard for a while now but have been waiting for a good deal. The cheapest I've been seeing him before was 6 or 7k

Will see how good the sixers legends are before deciding my next move

2 Iverson's

People on twitter keep saying "I feel bad for the people who did master Iverson." I don't think they realize all of the master cards are getting upgrades later in the year.

I have mixed feelings on the Sixers legends. Some of them look good, but others are either disappointments, or are glorified versions of other cards. imo, Dawkins looks to be the most impressive of the legends, with having stats close to Orlando Shaq, and going for much cheaper. Dr.J (whom I managed to pull), seems like a glorified version of George Gervin, but with a higher overall, so I'll probably put him on auction, and that 96 OVR Iverson almost looks the same as his Master card in terms of stats.

Gonna rock out with Point-Giannis for a little while. Those stats on someone basically 7 feet tall is giving me 2k15 demigod glitch flashbacks.

Even having Giannis at PF feels like cheese. How is someone with attributes like that rated a 93, yet AI is rated a 96? Except for popping threes, Giannis can do EVERYTHING; he can posterize, block shots, rebound, speed past bigs, post up, and he's a midrange deadeye.

Probably just the way overalls are calculated. Probably just as problematic for LUT cards as they can be in the regular rosters.

The overall ratings are inconsistent at times, even though there's hidden attributes. The other problem is the coaching logic relying on the overalls seen on the substitutions screen, especially if a card is rated in the 90's, only to find out he's rated in the high 70's to mid 80's in the substitution screen; the coach goes by those ratings instead of the card ratings when auto subbing in players.

The best example I can find with this is Rip Hamilton. His card is a 92 overall, yet on the substitutions screen, it displays...a 67 overall. So if you don't have Rip in your starting 5, expect him to get garbage minutes like a benchwarmer. I know the ratings in LUT work differently, but since the coach goes by the other ratings, the auto substitutions are occasionally poorly handled, and could bring in the wrong player at the wrong time.

Wow, that is quite a discrepancy!

2K actually has a good idea with their Intangibles rating, which can be used to boost and lower overall ratings without messing up the individual attributes.

Hey guys I need a pro tip for an auction ending in 20 mins. What's your strategy for winning close auctions? I usually bid with 20 secs left but a lot of times the game doesn't refresh so I don't know that I've actually been outbid until after its over

From what I've seen. the 96 OVR Iverson just looks to be used to boost your team's overall rating. The two have identical stats, with the 96 OVR having some better stats, but that's not much, especially since the Master cards will be upgraded later on.

Winning auctions is hit or miss for me. I usually place my bid when there's one second left, but as you said, the game has a tendency not to refresh the bid to show if I'm losing until the auction is over. You just have to hope that nobody is bidding for the player after you place yours in.

The oladipo card is pretty solid. I might wind up keeping it.

I have been spending most of my time in the auctions looking for deals and flipping them for a profit. I've been working the cards needed for the master series but the prices on the team players are coming down so it's not worth it. Still managed to flip a ladder card for a profit.

Got two black all star jerseys for cheap and flipped one for 8k in profit

Saw a Wilkins card for 40k and wound up winning it at 50k but unfortunately the price on him has come down a lot. Not sure if I can flip it for a profit, but I'd like to get my money back at least. Also put a bid in for a 93 all star LeBron for 80k. I was about to buy one for 90k buy it now but someone took it right when I was going to

Man you are getting pretty lucky. I was hoping to get that extra Wilkins for a bit cheaper but it's tough when you have to play the auction game. Buy it now makes it so much easier

Getting George Gervin for 10K is the luckiest I've been so far.

I didn't have any luck flipping my spare Oladipo card. Trying again at a slightly lower price point.

Gervin goes for pretty cheap now, especially since Erving was released.

With that being said, I'm looking for another player to play the 3. I currently have 62k on me right now, and I don't know which player I should go for. I could go for Rice, but I sold my Person card, so I don't know if he would be worth it, or I could try to get to about 100k for Paul Pierce, since he seems like a good all-around player.

That was about a week or so ago that I got Gervin. He's pretty fun to play with with his finishing rating.

Oh Man I saw Pierces card in the auction house and was very impressed with the stats. No real holes in his game. But I can't do it since he's on Boston

I think I might eventually sell my Durant all star card if I get the LeBron one and maybe even sell pippen if he keeps laying the ball up

As much as I have respect for Pip as a player, I might consider selling him too. It should be fine since he goes for much cheaper than he originally went for. While he can dunk, it's not comparable to someone like LeBron, Giannis, Nique, or even the Big O for that matter.

Hope we get some good content for the events and MVPs. Dunk Contest LaVine is one of my favorite players to use in any basketball video game. Especially given how overpowered dunking used to be.

I just can't even with this 70s team right now. Kept getting my ass kicked and this comeback bullshit is too much at the end. Up 7 comfortably and all of a sudden pistol Pete can't miss from 3. Well, he hits all of them during the game too but he magically winds up open for them at the end. I missed a free throw with curry and stupid CPU wants to inbound to pippen so I bring Curry up and my guy throws the ball out of bounds on the inbound play.

Frustrating.

Finally managed to get a Head to Head game, in order to check that off the GM List. Playing online in Australia is virtually impossible, though. Surprisingly, compared to 2K, it's extremely choppy and laggy, Jumpshots are impossible. Ah well. At least I managed to put up a fight and get the item checked off.

Did you mess with the defensive settings in the coaching screen? I usually have it to where I have tight coverage, and crash boards. Do you run defensive plays as well? You could try running a Full Court Press towards the end of the game, and if you have good defenders, they can cause turnovers.

From what I've seen, Maravich and Walton are the biggest threats on that team. Walton's lanky body helps him cover the inside well, and shut down your drives, so don't rely too much on slashing, and you'll want to put a good defender on Pistol, so try to play around with the defensive matchups to help you there.

Yes I am setting coaching settings and staying tight on the 3-point shooters. Walton isn't much of a threat for me. it's Maravich who has been hitting like five threes a game and dr. J on his driving and dunking
