Boss Battle Strategies

This thread is to help everyone along with the super tough Boss Battles.
When you have beat a boss and you have a strategy you think will help others, please add them here...

Karl Malone
This battle drove me completely crazy until I effectively learned to throw elbows. Use a player that has a high 3 point stat and find their hot spot. throw elbows right behind the three point line to knock Karl back enough to give you space to sink the three... play tight defense (stealing actually works well against him) and if he catches fire without you having at least 6-8 point lead, just restart the match. You'll get it eventually.

Dr. J
I found this one to be fairly easy (I beat it on my first try). Use someone with a high dunk score. Take advantage of the restart match if you can't hit every spot before he takes two. Take the closer spots first with easy dunks and once you hit fire, take the far ones. Once you've completely dominated the spots, if you defense is good enough, you should be able to reclaim the ball and/or any spots you've lost to count out the rest of the clock.

When facing Karl Malone, he will almost always try to shove once your possession starts. Just tap B and he will miss his shove. You can now drive towards the hoop for a layup or dunk.

Yeah, this works with pretty much everyone when you're playing 21 1-on-1. Whenever I got a basket, I'd just hold turbo and keep pressing B until I got past the guy and then got another dunk. Just keep doing that until you get 21.

This also works against Shaq, as well. Don't let him get on fire if you can help it, but even if you do, you can still beat him if you can get the ball back.

Shaq was a pain. If you hit a 3 PT shot you get a Power icon like you do in Remix mode. Helps a lot if you miss a shot and miss the rebound.

Also against Wade just sit under the basket and dunk non-stop. For some reason you don't have to check the ball at the top of the Key for this game of 21

Don't guard him.

Sit under the hoop wait for him to "magic" pass to himself and go for the block. When you get the ball get on fire and drain 3 pointers all day long. I juked him 3 times for layups/dunks then just rained 3s for the win.

Larry Bird:

Just do not follow the instructions given at the beginning.
Keep pushing him to the ground, that's the easiest way.

I tried millions of times before - with this method I won at the first game

Tapping turbo will throw elbows
You can't dunk for three you just gotta jumpshot

Thanks, I miss read your first post where you said take the easy dunks, then the rest. I thought you were saying you could dunk the threes

With Bird, my strategy was this (almost in every single boss)

First, get the ball of course, just press B without turbo, for example against Karl Malone, his hands are butter.
After getting the ball, go to the middle of the court and use a crossover with turbo of corse, and then score alone. Repeat this every time, you know, go back, crossover, score alone. This will work with almost, or even, with every one I can tell you.

You have to push over Yao. He is okay in strength but he has no ball-handling skills so I used the Celts in the Remix so I had Garnett shove and try stealing the ball from him anytime he touched the ball. I did get lucky and have a few blocks. When you have the ball, he is slow and not very nimble so you can easily break his ankles then drive to the basket.

whohoo ... finally i was able to finish all boss battles (but sadly not the whole rmx tour yet) i think i can give some advices / tips for some battles, too :

Mailman:
do this one with a player that has good speed- and steal-skills with at least 7/10 (more is much better !!!). the hardest part is just to get the ball. walk towards malone and try to steal the ball - once you've got the ball run (with turbo) away from the basket. call malone out and when you get close to him make a shove counter by pressing B (without turbo) - when you're successfull you will get a rubber-power up and can make your way to the basket (make definitely sure to get the power up - you will need it!). don't make risky shots, just do dunks or layer-ups. reapeat this procedure after every basket and malone will be down in a minute.

after i got into my rythm, i repeated the battle and beat him 21-2! also this boss battle is made for the elusive award.


Bird:
my advice (against others, i know) is to make shure to avoid to shove him! when you touch bird he will get on fire with his next basket. the problem is, when bird is on fire and he goes for a 3-pointer he will score three 3 pointers. so when you're not carefully enough he can nail you with only three or four shots at all.
for bird i also took someone with good steal skills and would suggest good 3 pointer abilities, too. when bird has the ball try to steal it from him (i did it all the same way: walk infront of 'em, hammer on the B button and succeed in most ways) and then avoid his shoves (larry is very aggressive!!) and try to score 3 pointers.


Diesel:
first of all: the shaq battle can be really, really annoing - so stay cool if you fail a couple of times!
your advantage in this battle is shaquilles slowness. pick a guy that is quick and has fine dunkin skills (at least 08/10 !!!). your major goal has to be, to repair the backboard. when shaq steps in he will damage the backboard instantly - so when you're not mindful enough the game is over after at least 30 seconds. like everytime steal the ball (when you handle this battle clever, once you have the ball, shaq won't get it back till the time has expired) and make big, fat slam dunks - to make sure, to repair the backboard. my advice is, that you always bend your shot clock - don't make quick baskets! the time is your biggest problem in this battle! run away from the basket, try to avoid diesel, run back to dunk it in. just repeat it untill the backboard is completly recovered and after that, try to avoid that shaq gets the ball back!


i hope this helps!!!

Not sure if this works with any other players yet, but, I just noticed the following while playing through Remix with Boston:

If you play as Larry Bird while facing Larry Bird and you get on fire, you also get the triple-basket bonus. Just beat him by netting 9 points with a single 3-pointer.

All I have left is to play 21 against the Sacremento Kings and the San Antonio Spurs. I have no idea why, but this is harder than most of the boss battles. Its impossible for me to get the ball, and when I do it gets stolen or blocked almost instantly. Any strategies or tips for beating these two gold challenges?

The Spurs were easy for me...beat them the 1st time although I was prepared for a grind. I was Orlando using Dwight Howard. When Duncan had the ball, I just hit steal, steal, steal. Eventually, I would get it. When Tony Parker got the ball, I just sat back at the basket and waiting until he shot...he always shot layups which were very easy to block.

I'm having the same problem with OKC and it doesnt help if you got a dumb ai on your team. the first game Kobe failed to tie the game and the second game Lamar Odom failed to hit a 8ft jumper. for the Wizards always play tight defense push/ steal as much as possible if succesful he will be eliminated assuming that u scored enought points. if u see the ai on ai and he's about to get block run behind him to get the ball and quickly take it back u probably wont have time to do a dunk so your better of running to the corner 3's u may not make it as much but its better than getting block everutime u go for a dunk.

WOW... what do u know I just beat OKC with Lamar Odom just by crossing them over and shooting corner 3's and it wasnt luck. I played my heart out, just dont stand in the paint because they will foul you. also beastie boys were not that hard, they ended up scoring less than 6pts.

I haven't reached the Beastie Boys yet, but very close. Is this a one shot deal? When you make it to them, and you lose; what will happen? Assumption no achievement and possibly do remix tour again?

I'm guessing you could quit out to dashboard if you are about to lose? Any of you who have the Beastie Boys achievement experience any losses? Or has everyone had a simple time beating them? Thx.

I beat them the 1st shot...22-0. I have heard similar stories so, evidently, they aren't that hard.

I guess just getting to them is the difficult part.
