how'd you manage that?


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.

Yes it does.

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

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. :(

I had his bird-rights, I don't know if that was it but signed Howard for ~$17 mil, Pek for ~$6.5 mil and Budinger for ~$5 mil. I only had Rubio, Love, Thompson, Kidd-Gilchrist, Cunningham and the rookies under contract. Everyone else signed for the minimum. I didn't want to part with Shved or Kirilenko but MKG is my favorite player behind Rubio and Thompson is a nice SG to develop alongside those two.

Yeah CPU player decisions are a little off. Both Detroit and Cleveland are beginning rebuilds and don't make sense for a star in their late 20s to go to...

Rubio/Sessions
George/Shved
Kidd-Gilchrist/AK47
Love/Gibson
Pek/Hawes

That's what I'm rolling with at about the same time as you. How could Dwight turn that down for Cleveland!

Howard joins Irving? CP3 joins Monroe and Drummond?

But how old would Dwight or CP3 be when those teams are contending?

Howard would be much better off in Portland if he were picking a small market. Or going to the Hawks together or each staying on their own L.A. teams in much better.

I've got a 2k13 question...

Anyone else have trouble balancing having realistic statistics with having realistic scores? For example, in 5 minute quarters, I have realistic stats, but my scores are in the 70s. If I up that to 7 or 8 minute quarters for normal scores, I get Rubio averaging about 15 assists a game.

Anyone else?

I would guess you could probably up your minutes to 7 minutes, but I think the Rubio thing is kind of just your preference to use him.

or maybe the game just knows how good Rubio is.

That's very possible, especially since this is in CAL mode with Ricky. BTW last game I ended up with 4/4/18 with him.

The 2k13 Wolves hit almost everything they take from the perimeter.

ughhh.... if only that were true. I need to start playing 2k again.

Been playing lots of Black Ops 2. Can't wait for the new maps to hit PS3.

Anyone here play the new DMC? I really want to play it and its not at red box. I might pick it up from Gamestop used.
