By   /   Sep 29, 2015

NBA 2K16 MyCareer guide to help you create the best player with tips, Attributes Cap and MyCareer Connections.

NBA 2K16 MyCareer

First off, you need to remember that in NBA 2K16, you’ll experience an attribute cap at every position and height, As a rule of thumb, tall players in the game are generally slow when it comes to running the court.

In addition to height and position, attribute cap is also determined by scoring style of a player. Dubbed as specializations, there are a total of 3 scoring styles to choose from which are:

  • Outside – Shooting 3pts and mid-range
  • Inside – Hook shots, dunk, and fadeaway
  • Balanced – A combination of both Inside and Outside

Lastly, remember that weight does not have impact on speed or anything like that.

MyCareer Tips and Strategies

You should not neglect high school games as these will eventually translate into your draft status along with college games. Depending on how well you play the college games, you will enter Top-3, Top-10, or something similar.

Another thing to remember is that your draft status hugely depends upon the 4 games. In case you maintain a good average in 3 games, but mess up the 4th one, you will eventually mess up the season.

Therefore, ensure that you play your best in all 4 games which will help you a ton in Draft Status.

Another thing you need to bear in mind is that you need to be good in all your stats and not just scoring to be able to reach the top spot in the Draft. You can even rely more on rebounds and assists to reach the top-3 spot.

Your end-of-year stats and MPG are primarily depends upon the first 8 games in your rookie year – better plays eventually translate into more MPG during the first year.

Keeping it consideration, you will be able to win awards such as Sixth Man of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and more.
