Nahhhh, only like in Episode 1 with like the 1v1v1 bullshit with J O'neal and T-mac is lame on your 1st just have to get lucky oftentimes because your created baller is such a "twig" that he'll fall to the ground 24/7 literally.

For basically every chapter....just do the Act-A-Fool combos.....easiest and cheapest ways to rack up points....and drive past your them a slimmer chance to block your shots. In all honesty.....I got to the middle of Episode 5 in like about 1.5 hours of gameplay.

Once you learn the Act-A-Fool combo and learn to do Super Steal and's a breeze. Bottom line though: Midway made such a crappy game, so we have to deal with it.

coming back from 22 was pretty easy, just simply work your way up to a super move level 3, stand in the basketball on the floor, hold LT+RT+B, just make sure you're in the basketball, i recommend standing still whilst doing this. And also, for those that don't know, doing a level 3 shut 'em down move finishes the game and you automatically win, but take note this is only in standard first to 11 games, not the ones where you have to achieve other moves etc.

I just finished the Story Mode last night. Here are some tips I can share for some common issues:

For the "No Checks 1 v 1", for every possession, I would start at the top of the key, even after I dunked it and got the ball back. Here's why: if you put the ball right back into the basket after a score, there's a chance that your opponent will steal the rebound. By dunking, getting the rebound, going all the way back to the top of the key, you can easily run by your opponent, dunk it, and he's nowhere close and no danger to steal the rebound. It's a slow, but safe way to ensure you keep scoring and keep the ball away from your opponent.

For those having trouble with the Superstar dunk, I followed the advice from this thread. When you get your 3 star ranking, walk over to the "Shut'em down" circle at the top of the key, stop, hold LT + RT, then hit X. Don't make the mistake that I, as well as others, did. Yes, in the real world, you would want a running start if you were to dunk. But, this is NBA Ballers where you can dunk the ball even while standing still! Many times, I would end up shooting the Super Shot, and not the dunk, which is probably the most frustrating experience ever.

To build up to 3 stars, often times I would Act-a-fool once, run back in front of the guy guarding me, then do it again, then go dunk it. It all depended on the shot clock. Getting from 0 stars to 2 stars is easy, but 2 stars to 3 can take forever if you only do one Act-a-fool at a time.

Anyone playing this still?

Im properly stuck on the hold Tim McGrady to 0 points one and i cant do the LB and x move after i steal it for some gets to like the 3rd button in the sequence and i press it and he steals it...

Is there another way like do it once and then just let the shot clock go and get it back so the time runs out because it is properly annoying having to beat 2 players before you even get up to playing him...and theres two after so if i loose to them im gonna actually kill a kitten.

I might just start a new player and get up to this point but make him amazing at 3,s dunks and steals because i need it for the second play through achievement anyway..

Here some tips

First game: Dificult and need some practice. Need to perfome a Off-The-Head, then a 3+ move Combo and Dunk. Try first the off the head, just run a bit, foward, and than use RT+LT+Y, so the ball bounces in the adversary head, quickly continue to run and press Y, so you in the same move do a hooly Hoop. Than, just kee doing good till level 3, activate combo, and than Dunk. Time limited is 3 minutes, so need to do actions quickly.

Second game: Easy one. Need to do crowd Hooly Hoop. Just pass the ball to the public, and tuning to the net press X. The ball returns in the air, and we do a hooly hoop.

Third Game: Easy - Need to perfomance 4 Super moves:
2 Super Blocks (level 2 power, than RT+LT+Y (under the net) when adversary trys to dunk.
2 Super Steals (level 2 power, than RT+LT+B)

Fourth Game: Easy one too - Need to perfomance Every Super Move:

1 super block Shot Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+Y (under the net)
1 super steal - Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+B (without ball)
1 super Juke - Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+X
1 super Shot - Super Lvl 2 RT+LT+B
1 super dunk - Super Lvl 3 RT+LT+B (in the yellow circle with ball)

Hope It can help, as it was very difficult to me to discover!

Now gonna do last chapter...
The super steal is RT + LT + X on defense not B

I hate that I have to keep starting over, beating Nate Robinson and Iguodala's asses, only to get screwed by Tracy "Lazy Eye" McGrady. The man counters all my moves, does some cheap ass fouls, and he even took a charge. IN A STREET GAME!?!?! I have never seen that done in my life! I am going to snap this disc and return it to the video store with no appologies.

I agree this game is total BS!
I wish I never bought it.
I spent over an hour trying to beat section 3 of Episode 2 (come back from 22) then I got to the last section, and lost the final match and had to start the section 5 over again where you play 3 games.

Looks like this one might be only a 300-400 game. I think the game actually sucks and I hate playing it.

I recommend avoiding this game all together.
