Man this new "prelude" trailer got me hyped!!

Tell me if I'm a freak, but I'm already planning how to create my player 2 weeks before the demo releases  ;D
2k16 was a great game in my eyes, and I'm looking forward to play 2k17.
I assume most of us want to play for the celtics in mycareer, so what type of player do you want to create to lead the celtics to banner 18?

I will create a PF like Blake Griffin but with better defense and a prettier jumpshot, so basically the most dominant player I can imagine  ;D

So what are your plans?

 
PG: Jackson/ Jennings/ Blake/ Dinwiddie
SG Caldwell-Pope/ Jodie Meeks
SF: Muhammad/ Covigton/ Hilliard/ Bullock 
PF: Saric/ Morris/ Illyosova/ Tolliver
C: Drummond/ Baynes

I normally make 3 main ones.

I wanna make an athletic, Westbrook-like point guard, then a Paul George esque SF, and finally a big rim protecting, lob catching big like DJ
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

I usually go PG or Center. PG is high defender that can pass and score inside. Center is usually like Stat.
My Top 5
Trade targets.      Draft.                     FAs
1. Davis              1.Fultz              1. Griffin*
2. Cousins          2. Tatum          2. Hayward
3. Butler              3. Jackson       3. Millsap
4. George            4. Ball               4. Lowry
5. Favors             5. Isaac            5. Gali

I actually haven't bought a 2k game since 2k14 when the ps4 first came out. I usually go for small forward - LeBron-like physique with Ray Allen like shooting :D

Defensive center for sure.

Help the team win games by crashing the boards and protecting the paint
I trust Danny Ainge

I loved the MyCareer for 2k14. Lots of great cutscenes, and the choices you made in the cutscenes actually affected the story. Unfortunately, we really haven't had anything like that ever since. Hopefully 2k17 revives MyCareer, and the NBA 2K franchise as a whole, because 2k16 left a really bitter taste in my mouth.

If I buy 2k this year (I hardly got to play 2k16, unfortunately) I generally always create a PG. And TBH, I don't think I've ever played for the C's. But hey, maybe this will be the year I try to join the C's so I think I'll try creating a small ball PF. I'm still deciding whether I want him to have range ala Rashard Lewis or one who flies everywhere ala Josh Smith.

7 foot power forward that can dunk like Tmac and 2k1 Ricky Davis, handle like vintage Chris Paul, and shoot threes like Dirk.
CB Draft 2016:
PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell
PF:Dirk Nowitzki/JaMychal Green
C: Deandre Jordan/Roy Hibbert/Alex Len

I played "My Player" mode in 2k14 and felt it took way too long to make the player good.  He started as like a d league talent who was garbage and it seemed like it would take several hours of playing games until he was even mediocre.  It felt like the game was set up for micro transactions to force you to pay extra money for the player to be good.  I stopped playing.  Did they improve it in 2k15?

You don't really need to make microtransacrions to get good. It's an NBA players career. It takes time to develop. LarBrd, you can't expect your MyCareer to be Tyreke Evans in his rookie year. And you aren't labeled as a disappointment if you can't become Tyreke in 2 years either. After 2 seasons on Hall of Fame difficulty, I was still averaging like 14 and 8. It takes time to develop. Several hours isn't really a lot either.

lol

It just seemed that by default the game made you a d-league talent and then you needed to actually play full games over the course of an 82 game season to improve a tiny amount.  I wanted to play the mode but I wanted the guy to be a star prospect from the start.

yea i know what you mean, all jokes aside. the one issue 2k has is adjusting your guys overall relative to where you're drafted and how well you do in pre draft stuff. this year in 2k16, unless you got VC from other game modes outside of mycareer, you had to go through high school, college, and getting drafted without earning any VC. in your rookie year (thanks to the horrid storyline by Spike Lee) you only play 8 games, hardly enough to get better. by the time real gameplay actually started, you were in your second season and still like a 63 overall. They need to work on that more.

Every year I go into it focusing on the way I actually play on the court.  Over the past few years I've been relying more on my dribble drives and midrange shooting rather than post ups and being the roll guy, so I've went from being a PF/C to a PF, to I guess what Brad would call a swing.

So I'll probably choose SF, then every now and then hit the post or pick and roll/pop.

Man, I love how a new 2K means the season is approaching soon! Exciting times!
Play to win.  Always.
