I find it really easy to release right at the highest point of his shot, but I have a lot of trouble shooting threes with AK and George (traded for him) so I usually just stick with Love. I always shoot about 50% from three with Love and this game I made my first five or six and wanted to see how far I could take it.

probably because bigs that can shoot threes are very rare.
So bigs in 2K dont usually extend their defense beyond the three point line
which results to wide open shots for bigs that can shoot threes like Kevin Love thus high percentage of making the shot.

I am having what I consider a big issue with 2K. Love does not rebound well. In my last 6 games he's probably averaging around 7 boards. It's really starting to annoy me as I like to have my players getting their numbers. Is he rebounding for you guys?

He rebounds well only when I jack the rebounding sliders up. I've had this trouble with most big men in 2K, it does get annoying.

Seems they still haven't found a way to make dominant rebounders work properly. IF you got 99's and the hustle ability your guy should be in the paint all the time boxing out for boards. It should be really noticeable that someone is a monster in that regard.

Their half assed Shved upset me so much I never used him and created my own. Still fine tuning him.

I've been updating my roster recently using this: http://www.operationsports.com/forums/nba-2k-rosters/530243-comprehensive-simulations-stat-mechanics-guide-all-roster-makers-should-read.html as a guide, and this specifically for rebounds:

REBOUNDS

OffenseReboundRating = 6 * (OffReb% - 2) + 25

Scale:
99 14.3%
85 12.0%
70 9.5%
55 7.0%
40 4.5%
25 2.0%

Sample Ratings: (Official 2k Rating on the Right)
89 Howard 93
27 Nowitzki 60
33 James 44
34 Bryant 40
25 Paul 36

DefenseReboundRaging = 5 * (DefReb% - 4) / 2 + 25

Actual rebounding numbers will depend on minutes played and rebounding ability of teammates. The reason you see Love getting only 10 RPG in the official roster is Beasley and Darko being hugely overrated rebounders.

Scale:
99 34.0%
85 28.0%
70 22.0%
55 16.0%
40 10.0%
25 4.0%

Sample Ratings: (Official 2k Rating on the Right)
92 Howard 96
67 Nowitzki 86
62 James 70
50 Bryant 50
46 Paul 56


And based on that, the vast majority of players in this game are rated way too high in rebounds. So if you're willing to go in and adjust everyone's ratings individually, that will probably be the only way to fix the rebounding problem.

LOL eff that. I might adjust the wolf players though. Problem with adjusting everybody is that it destroys simulation rebounding numbers too.

Anybody purchased a Wii U? Doesn't seem like the new controller and so forth makes up for the fact that it's still behind the Xbox and PS3 on capabilities. And their launch titles are pathetic.

I'm looking at getting 2k13, is there a franchise mode (not Player/Career mode)? And is it worth it? Thanks!!!

Joined this online association. Started a game and got booted out, I went to hook up my cable internet directly to the xbox and as I was trying to plug it in I wound up tilting my 360 about 30 degrees and it scratched my game up to hell in about 3 seconds. The newer model 360's will destroy any disc in there if the system gets off balance. Same thing happened to one of my games the first day I got this three 360. The worst part is, I was thinking, "this could happen" while I was trying to plug the cord in. If I would have exercised more caution wouldn't have wasted 60 bucks.

For all pc gamers playing 2k13 I recommend albys realistic roster. All gameplay bugs are fixed especially the rebounding problems. Love is averaging 25-16 in my association. Although you have to download for Shved's cyberface. It also has sliders and tendencies fixes. Close to real i love how the twolves suck at threes :D

you can find it here in

The trade finder is a little broken. It either gives horrible deals, like Love+ for Klay Thompson or steals. The draft is a little broken as well with really good guys falling to the second round (where I got Ben McLemore and Archie Goodwin). I signed Dwight Howard during free agency and re-signed Bud & Pek. Also I'm not sure if CP3 signed anywhere because he had 0 offers on the last day(?).
So at the beginning of the second year I have:

Rubio/Livingston
Thompson/*McLemore*/*Goodwin*
Kidd-Gilchrist/Budinger
Love/Cunningham/Tolliver
Howard/Pekovic

Plus 6 1st round picks in 2014 for Wiggins, Parker, Harrison Twins...

How did you re-sign Pek and sign Howard? Howard signed with the Cavs and Paul signed with the Pistons in mine. So stupid.

I'm actually just starting my second year with the Wolves and I've got Kidd-Gilchrist now too lol. I did just lose the NBA finals to the Heat though. :(
