Ah yes the all star embiid card is a solid all around card. I don't know why I didn't think of that. I could sell yao for him once I get tired of yao

Good pulls on both, despite the issues with the mid-range ratings.

I at least wanted to have Hakeem on my team, so I'm happy with that. Ibaka has played well for me, but I'd like to replace him with a favourite, too.

Congratulations on your pulls, and nice team! It's a good thing you completed the All-Star challenges to get that head start, and already, you have an 89 overall lineup. Even though Yao and Hakeem don't have good midrange ratings, they make up for that with their defensive performances. If you want a better Power Forward, I suggest getting Cavs Kemp, or Suns Larry Nance, since both of them go for around 10k right now.

Thanks! The All-Star Challenges were fun to play through, pretty happy with what I got (I also have Sabonis). As I said, my only complaint is that I would've liked to get a guard and a big, but getting Curry and Irving makes for a pretty potent backcourt to say the least.

That's one hell of a lineup you've got there, too. Definitely envious of Payton and Kemp!

That Ibaka card is a good all around card to have. I missed out on it after looking at it last week. Someone bought out right when I was going to get it.

It's served me well. He can score inside and out, and he's obviously good for some big blocks as well. No gripes with his performance, and Dwight Howard was actually working out pretty well for me too, I just want a favourite in there. ;)

New solo challenge reward.

Looks like the highlight of the night promo from 16 but they're calling it Big Moments.

Hopefully this card will be in packs at some point and isn't just a limited use player.

Not sure if they'd do permanent versions of those cards. Big Moments seems to imply a single game or clutch performance so it's kind of temporary, like a snapshot of that moment. Also, it is a bit overpowered do they might not make permanent versions for balance purposes. This is the first card over 94 if my memory serves me right

So far Yao is blocking a ton of shots but then again I am getting rejected fairly regularly even on pro difficulty so that might be just up across the board. Also I am picking up more fouls on block attempts, even after I get a clean block which is frustrating.

I also had a disconnect from servers mid game again at like 3am so I don't know how I can prevent that

On the contrary, if you complete the challenge, you either can receive a trial card, or an unlimited, non-actionable version of the card. I've seen someone get the actual card on Twitter, but it's random.

You don't have to earn a triple double to earn the card either, you just have to complete the game, especially since it's 3 minute quarters. I ALMOST got the 60 points along with the triple double from the challenge though (I should've got the full card for getting so close!)

No, you can get it by just completing the challenge. You can either get the trial card, or if you're really lucky, a permanent, non-actionable version of that Harden.

And yeah, how come Maravich and Nash have pitiful defense, yet all versions of Harden are higher than them. Speaking of which, even though that Harden is a 96 Overall, I compared him to my Pierce card, and Pierce still has superior stats except for speed.

Yeah I don't think that number is the true overall rating. It's an arbitrary value they put on the card regardless of stats. Some legends with whack ratings are 90-92

Another example is All-Star Cousins. Neither of his cards look anywhere close to be a 93 Overall in terms of visible attributes, but it's added as placebo just to increase the team overall.

I'm glad that you're guaranteed a Harden, even if the worst is a trial, but I don't see myself using it, especially since I already have Paul Pierce. I'm not going to discard it, since I personally see it like a collector's item that you don't want to open.

I saw Sean Elliot go for 60k, Gervin for 30k, Rockets McGrady for 35k, World B. Free for 20k, All-Star Embiid for 130k (thank god I got him for 60k earlier), and All-Star Durant going in the 200k range.

dammit I should have gone for embiid! or at least saved some of these premium cards I was selling lol

Edit: I think it might be just the new influx of players form all of these recent sales who have no idea how the auction house works. I took a look and most prices seem pretty reasonable but there are a few that are outrageously high. Again, my theory is that the ones that are selling (especially buy it now) you are not seeing and the ones that you are, are the ones that are too high. I'm about to take this Embiid for 90k. Hopefully my Rodman will sell to make up for it. Either way, I'll still have enough for 1 legends pack this week if it doesn't sell.

btw, I got a 5 game harden after getting a double double with Shaq. Pts and Asts. only 1 rebound lol

Bulls Rodman or Pistons Rodman? I sold my Pistons Rodman for 27k, but his Bulls version could sell for about 50k or more.

I highly recommend you pick up an All-Star Embiid card, he's on another level. One game he got 6 blocks, 7 rebounds, went 6/7 from three point range, 10 assists, and 37 points. Imo, best Center in LUT, especially since he's a two-way player.

Getting the full version of Harden is confirmed random. I saw someone get the full version after scoring 60 points, and somebody else tried it, scoring 66 points, but that person got the trial.

Bulls rodman. People aren't really selling him anymore. I found another auction that was too high at 150/200 so I raised my asking price but it's still lower than the other option. I'm selling 91k with 115 buy it now

I got the embiid card and surprisingly he hasn't hit a 3 for me but I only took a few contested ones. Don't think he'll start over shaq but he'll be a good backup C and good for 3 point death lineups.

I can play master Curry, master klay, Rice, Ladder kuzma (90 3pt rating!), and embiid

Master curry has been a killer at sg for me as his off the dribble rating is probably very high so I can hit fast break 3s, spot up 3s, step back 3s, fadeaway 3s, contested 3s it doesn't matter

Yeah what makes me think those numbers are arbitrary are the Xmas and all star events where they have like 8-10 players all with the same number bit there's no way that cousins and LeBron or Redick and LeBron have the same actual overall rating

The good thing with the ToTW challenge this week is that you're guaranteed an Elite ToTW player...and of course, people are complaining about their overalls being too high, and how LUT "is smoking when creating these cards."

The boosted cards in both LUT and MyTEAM have their positives and negatives. I'm not against them as I think they're fun to shake things up, but sometimes the boosts can be a little much. Examples such as Scola being 95 Overall in MyTEAM are a good example of that.

Yeah, 2K giving Scola a 95 Overall card was silly, and that's an example of a ridiculous choice. When you take in consideration of these ToTW ratings, it's like the Rookie Ladder overalls; higher than usual, but shows a player's growth.

I also watched gameplay of the newest Harden card, and to be honest, I'm not impressed. For starters, he can't dunk, at all. He only performs layups (Pippen can get occasional contact dunks, but Harden...gets absolutely no dunks whatsoever), so players like 93 McGrady, and even Nique are better options to go with, since both of them can dunk, and despite them having a lower overall, their stats are basically better all around than that Harden.

Even Paul Pierce doesn't dunk the ball as much as I thought he would. It's more frequent than Pippen, but nowhere near the level of someone like McGrady

Penny Hardaway also does not dunk except for a few times on fastbreak. Good thing he is taller than normal point guards. The 93 overall All Star Giannis is really a beast, much better than Magic T-Mac. I managed to snag him for 100k. The Larry Bird and 96 overall Allen Iverson are the most expensive cards I've seen and I am no longer hoping that I can get any of these cards so I have to be satisfied with my 90 overall AI.

It's not "having" to be satisfied with Master Iverson, especially since his 96 overall version is just glorified with +3 or so for each stat, and the 96 overall is just placebo to increase your team overall rating. Besides, all Master Players receive upgraded overalls through later challenges, so it's most likely gonna make the Legend card obsolete. This is probably how Master Curry might achieve a 99 3pt rating.

Hi shinron, I only have the 90 rated AI from the legends pack and not the master AI version :D . It will take a very long time for me to be able to attempt to get the master version since I still don't have all the team heroes. I think the master AI is closer to the 96 rated legend version of AI.

I have no problem dunking on my team as I have Magic shaq, nique, all star LeBron, and even ladder kuzma throws down while leaving pippen on the bench

Just did the team of the week and got Burke. What's weird is that with the outdated rosters you don't even play against the guys on the team of the week because they aren't even on their respective teams. That's a problem. You mean to tell me they can't set up an updated starting 5 like they so on hometown teams every week? And 3 guys on the bulls starting five are wearing #8. I saw they updated Rubio to #3 and thankfully my ladder Josh Hart is updated to #5 but I dunno how taj Gibson still doesn't have the right number. I did appreciate that I got to play against Jeremy Lin who otherwise wouldn't have been on the team

Only done one challenge. Going on vacation soon from work so hoping to get serious. Beat the Warriors challenge, got KD for a couple of games. I deleted my first drawing (bunch of crap players). This time, at least I got Mike Miller. I also got Jordan Clarkson to pair with Harden from the initial draw. Hoping to win some auctions next time. Also I guess everybody got LeBron for Christmas, so next challenge/game I'm rolling with Harden/Clarkson/Durant/James/Pekovic. Nobody else that famous on the bench/inventory but I've heard of some of them. Compared to my first draw (Ingram, Harden and a bunch of "who he play for?" scrubs), this one was much better (Harden, Clarkson, Pekovic, Mike Miller).

I would save the limited timed cards for the harder challenges. All star or superstar difficulty. Most are pro and rookie difficulty so you can win with an all bronze squad

Hmm I would have thought Porter would have been a good candidate for legends. Or better yet, how sick would it be to be able to play as Brandon Roy. Definitely one of the best blazers of all time

Roy would've been a cool addition, but he hasn't appeared in any recent basketball game if my memory serves me correct. At the very least, Roy could make it as a Master Challenge (if that's the case, I should get some Blazers players lol)

Drexler's stats if anyone is interested. Very good card to have. Huge warning about Walton being a landmine pull. Even though it's just those two, Walton has a very high pull rate from what I've seen.

Clyde can dunk :wink:

Random, but Looking at the the dude's twitter page who gives all those hints... he's got a picture of the old school Hornets court on it. Is he using a 2k screenshot? Lol
Or maybe an old NBA live screenshot

He's using a screenshot of retroman's Hornets court, so it's either 2K13 or 2K14.

Drexlers defensive rating should be higher, but otherwise they showed him respect. Nice work EA.

Drexler is fun as hell to use in LUT. He can hit the three, dunk over defenders, deadeye midrange shooter, and a great defender.

How does his shot look? Did they get it right?

Would be cool to see some Drexler highlights from Live 18.

From what I've seen, it looks like he uses a standard jumpshot. Some of the legends do have their own jumpshots like Bird (which looks more accurate than 2K's, minus the fact that he leans backwards a bit too much), but iirc, Clyde uses a default jumper.

Btw, whenever you have the chance, you should give LUT another go. It's much more fun now that there's a larger amount of legends, current players who can now compete on the same level of legends, and fan favorites added in Master Challenges (Iverson, Magic, Mr.Clutch, etc.)

Got a limited Walton from the challenge. 98 defense, that explains why he was swatting everything in that 70's team challenge
