    Just because I agree with my cousin does not make us the same people. Anyways are you telling me that with a tie game with 2 minutes left in the 4th you would not go low on Lebron or Wade if guaranteed an NBA title?

    Yes. 100 percent yes. Without a doubt yes. Why can't you jut play properly and if you are good and talented enough you win. If not, you don't. Cheating is wrong.

    First thing's first: Nick Batum is a solid all around player. He gives you defense, he has a respectable 3 point shot and take you off of the dribble. He also plays with a lot of heart and spirit which is something you can't draft nor trade for! He had a lousy season last year but remember he is nursing a shoulder injury. I ask any one of you to play 82 games of basketball with that! If anything we should get rid of JJ Hickson. We can get a way better big man that him. He is undersized and cannot score!

    Batum cant take anyone off the dribble all he does is shoot 3s on offense. He doesnt play with heart oor spirit at all!! He complains and makes excuses all the time! He didnt even want to play in Portland last offseason. 


    Saying "hes better than you!" or "Why dont you do it" is the lamest arguement ever! Nic gets paid MILLIONS to play ball and if he can't do it well then TRADE HIM!! Its been 5 years of suckiness hahah

    I don't want to trade him, but you are almost completely wrong. He doesn't take people of the dribble. The best I've seen is a head or pump fake and drive, or the little curl from the wing to the rim and jam thing which is great but they don't do too often (Probably because if they do it often it will be less effective). He also doesn't play with much heart. I love the guy, and this was my first season watching basketball and Rip City, but from what I gather, after landing the big contract, he regressed big time. I would give him until the next trade deadline.

    Yeah I never had a problem with trading Batum 

    I just dont like when people seem desprate to trade Batum. I dont like when people on forums want to stress their point too much. (No offense lol)

    ON Blazersedge this guy is making a point that we should draft Steven Adams because Leonard skill set isnt fit for a championship center. I agree for the most part with the guy, BUT He posts the same thing everywhere!! I see him reply to every comment saying the SAME thing. 

    I was seeing the same thing here. Numerous "TRADE BATUM" threads and the site was polluted with Batum being garbage lol

    Don't have it on PS3. It got it on PC. Much cheaper, if you catch my drift. You play My Career? I made a 7"2 Faceup Centre and posted a triple double for 2 seasons with like 6 steals and 3 blocks. Made a PG modelled after Dame and averaging 40+points 20+ assists and 9 steals, all in Hall of Fame mode, both playing for Rip City.

    Can't decide whether to actually pay many and get it on PS3 to play online or wait for 2K14. Like 4 months. In America they have places where you can buy second hand games right?

    Who said Piracy? Piracy is illegal. You shouldn't do illegal things. And cheating is against the spirit of the game that's why I'm opposed to it.

    Let's say, NOT piracy. *Not Wink*. I might or might not be pirating games, then buying them if I like it (Assassins Creed, Battlefield, Mirrors Edge, a lot more). I definitely bought Skyrim straight up. Love that game. Can't wait for Elder Scrolls Online.

    If I play a free demo, I'm only going to play the one level they give me, and if I like it, I buy the game. IF I download a game, and like it, I will buy it, if not, I am anyway going to know after 1 level, so same difference.

    Yeah that's what I did too. I used to play as a centre, and I thought around 50 skill points or VC a game (excluding highlight plays and all that) was great. Started playing as a PG, now I get an average of 100 SP a game, with around 33 highlight plays. Easiest way to play, is make yourself a 3pt specialist. Then, even in your first few games, when you don't get much playing time and don't have many other shots, you can atleast hit threes to get more time, and xp, and make your guy good. I play pass first, but still get 40 pts 22 asts, but I didn't want pass first, athletic or all round PG. For me, it was Defensive or 3pt. I eventually went for 3pt because like I said, easier. I still regret that I can't get lockdown defender because even with the shoe attribute boost thing, I can only get my guys on ball defence to 90 maximum.

    I know, I play Hall of Fame, and have pickpocket, so I get around 8-9 steals a game. I pick off the out of bounds pass a decent bit, about 3-4 times a game. Rest is passing lanes and waiting for some contact and then stealing.

    I also dunk a lot. I used to only shoot threes and all the three point zones were hot for me. Now it's only the rim, so I try to take more jumpers. My second season, I shot 80/80/100, abut gone down to about 75/78/100 from taking more jumpers. I mostly use tomahawks, but I know started using back scratchers of two (D Rose).

    Highest I got drafted is 6 (PG) and then 11(Centre). I kept quitting until I got selected to the Blazers.

    I am fine with predicting that Batum will be the 6th or better most efficient SF in the league for 2013/14.

    I wanted to be a one team player. I like playing PG because I get loads of points, but early in my second season, I have maxed out almost every attribute. Only like Post Hook, Speed, Dunk, and some other stuff is left. I like to go with my big man and play legit back to the basket ball from now and then. Makes me fall in love with the gave all over again.
