Starting in franchise mode

The first thing you should do when startingfranchise mode is to release all your minimum salary (30,000 points) players that have ratings below 73 to sign other players that have higher ones. For example, if you have Jannero Pargo in your Lakers franchise, he has a salary that is 30,000 points with an overall rating of 72. Release him and sign Tim Hardaway for the same 30,000 point value. You will get a better deal since Tim Hardaway has an 80 rating. Try to make a strong bench line so that when one of your starters gets injured, a good replacement can fill in for that person.

Easy 3 pointers

On defense, get a good 3 pointer or even someone that cannot make that many. Avoid moving until it is your ball. In other words, let the other players do the work. When you get the ball, pass it to that person. Do not use turbo or any tricks. Just shoot a 3 pointer close up and he will make it.

Easy dunks hint

When in possession of the ball, pass it to someone who is known to have good dunking abilities. You can usually tell if they are good dunkers when they have the icon with a shoe and lightning. Players such as Jerry Stackhouse, Vince Carter, Kobe Bryant, and Tracy McGrady are good choices. You also need to make sure that your player has good dribbling skills. Move around near the three point line. Do a few crossovers and spins on your opponent, and he will usually trip slightly. After that, press TURBO to make a drive into the basket. Hold SHOOT until your player is ready to dunk the ball.

Bypassing tough defenders

When attempting to shoot and have a top defender on your player (for example, Ben Wallace, Bruce Bowen, Kevin Garnett, Kobe, Jason Kidd, Tim Duncan, etc.) and he will not go for a head fake, take a few dribbles. After that, do another fake and he will usually go flying. This also can help you draw easy fouls.

Tall dunkers

If a player is taller than seven feet (for example, Shaq), they will almost always dunk the ball hard on the rim. Even though their dunk rating is 99, they will not be able to do any slam dunks such as Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant.

Sign good free agents when over the salary cap

During the off season of franchise mode, when you get to the option to sign free agents, skip over it. Select the option to trade players. The game will confirm that you want to skip signing free agents. Answer "Yes". If you leave at least four roster spots open, the CPU will automatically sign free agents for you on one year, 30,000 point contracts. The better the year your team has had, the better the players you will receive. Also, the more roster spots you leave open, the more players you will get.

Getting good players in franchise mode

There is an easy way to get any players desired in franchise mode and to give them all 99 ratings. Start a season and trade for the players. Change their ratings as desired. As soon as you have your team, save the game and go back to the main menu. Open a franchise and choose the same team that you had in the season. Your team will have all the players from the season and their ratings. Save the franchise, then you can delete the season. Note: Some of the better players (for example Jermaine O'neal) only have one year remaining on their contracts. Make sure they play plenty and score well. If you win the championship they may want to resign.

Franchise mode trading

If you want trade for a player but the team that has him does not want to accept your offer, simply change the player you want to trade to the other player's position. Most of the time the team will accept. For instance, if you have a Lakers franchise and are willing to trade Robert Horry for Ben Wallace but the Pistons will not accept your offer, change Robert Horry's position to Center and the Pistons will probably accept. Try to do this trick as often as possible for better trading.

Pump fakes

To do a pump fake, just tap SHOOT. Usually when a defender is near you, he will jump and try to block your fake. While he is in mid-air, shoot the ball and about 80% of the time it will goes in because there is no one interfering with your shot. Make sure you do not try moving after doing a pump fake, because you will get called for traveling.
