Easy dynasty mode hints

-Prior to starting dynasty mode, trade Deshauwn Stevenson and Jameer Nelson for Brad Miller. Start dynasty mode, then play with Miller for about five games very well (only score points with him). However, make sure you win all of the games. After that, trade Brad Milller for Okufor on the Bobcats. You will win every game. Make sure you do not trade Francis, Howard, Hill, Cato, or Mobley. Mobley will try to leave at the end of the season; resign him.

-From the "Settings" option at the start menu, go to "Rules". Turn off all the rules except the shot clock. You can now run out of bounds, travel, and foul.

-Begin a season or dynasty mode and select your team then once go to the roster management screen. Select "Edit Player". You will then be able to set all the stats of all your players to 99. You should be able to win any games you play. Try playing as the New York Knicks and the only team you will have tiny chance of losing to is the Boston Celtics.

-Use the following trick to get an overall boost in dynasty mode. While in dynasty mode, go to "Roster Management" and go to "Edit Player". Go to "Information", then change either the player's first position, second position, or number. Confirm the changes. The player should get a boost in overall. Note: Some players will decrease in overall if you change them, such as Emeka Okafor and Amare Stoudamire.

Easy points

To get easy points, give the ball to your PG and use DIRECT SWITCH with your best dunker on the team. After that, set a pick and roll for the PG (or the ball handler). Move your person in the opposite direction of where the PG moved. When you are a few steps from the basketball, press [Alley-Oop]. This works at least 80% of the time. The best teams for this are those that have flashy players (the Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, or just a team that has a few dunkers).

Better season mode team

-Start a new season. Before anything else, go to "Free Agents", and sign the highest rated free agents you can find, such as Alonzo Mourning (70), and Karl Malone (69). Replace good free agents similar to them with your weaker bench players. With more high rated people on your team, you can make more trades to get very good players on you team.

-In season mode when trading, look for teams with one or more spots available on their roster. You can trade two or more lower ranked players for one of their higher-ranked people. Keep doing this with teams. You can then get even better people on your team. Using this and the previously mentioned "Better season mode team" hint will not be as effective in dynasty mode due to the salary cap. However in season mode, it does not matter. By using both hints, it is possible to get a team with Allen Iverson, Shaq, Yao Ming, Peja Stojakovic, Manu Ginobili, and other decent players.

-There is an easy way to change a terrible team into an excellent team to use in dynasty mode. Trade all the bad players to other teams for great players before you begin the dynasty. For example, before starting dynasty mode with Atlanta, trade their starting five players for Shaq, Duncan, Mike Dunleavy, Kobe, and Gilbert Arenas. After doing this, save the settings and start the dynasty.

-During season mode, go to the "Roster Management" section then enter the sign/release area. Go through all the teams and gather all of the best fifteen players (for example, Kevin Garrnett) and sign them onto your team. You will have to release some of your current team players to get the better players. However, they will not come up under your team's trade players list.

While playing defense and are having trouble guarding the ball carrier try switching control to one of your big men down low in the paint and "roam" the key while your CPU teammate does the work up top guarding the ball carrier. This puts you in position to stop penetration easily and force your opponent to shoot from outside. If the big man you choose to control is also a Big Blocker (as indicated by the hand icon), he should be able to turn away even the best offensive players with fearsome blocks and in-air collisions. Playing tough defense is vital for victory when playing against the toughest opponents.

-Play a game under the rookie difficulty in dynasty mode and get 20 shots in a row. Simply do dunks and play against a team with no shot blockers to get over 2000 dynasty points.

-Simulate dynasty to the playoffs or pass the playoffs to the off-season. You will get a message on your PDA that states that you have received NBA Store points.The amount may vary.
