Show / Hide Guide Road Map  

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10
- Offline: 11 (960 )
- Online: 1 (40 )
- Approximate amount of time to 960 : <5 hours
- Glitched achievements: You can no longer get the “Online Win” achievement since EA shut down the servers for this game.
- Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes.

Introduction:
With NBA Live 06 within a couple of hours you should have all of the attainable achievements. That would be 960 you’ll be able to get. The game’s achievements are easy and you should not have any problem at all getting all 11 of them.

Note: EA has shut down the online servers for this game so do not expect to get the full 1000 if you’re just starting this game.

Step 1:
Before you do anything go and create a player and set all of his attributes to 99. After you do that you should get the NBA Live 06 Created Player achievement. Now after that go and play four Play Now games. Put the quarter length at two minutes, play the first game on Rookie difficulty, play the second game on Starter difficulty, play the third game on All-Star difficulty, and play the fourth and final game on Superstar difficulty. That should be the only four games you play in this game. Now go into Season Mode with the team you have your created player on. Now just simply sim through the season and you should easily get all of the season achievements since your created player will be excellent in-season. If you somehow don’t win the MVP the first go around just simply start another season and you should get it in the second season.

Conclusion:
Well now you should have an easy 11 achievements and an extra 960 as well. Just do exactly what Step 1 says and within a couple of hours this game will be complete for the moment. Too bad EA shut down the servers for this game, but 960 is not bad at all.

NBA LIVE 06 Created Player20
This user has created a player in NBA LIVE 06. 
When you are in the opening practice menu press  and go to the menu. From here go to create a player. Then customize your own player and when you finish you will get an achievement.
All-Star75
In Season Mode, a player on the user team has made the NBA All-Star team. 

This is very easy to do with simming. You will most likely get this if you choose the LA Lakers or Timber wolves. You can get this easily with a simmed season with pretty much any team, but those two you are almost guaranteed to get it. It would be wise to also trade some of NBA Live 06's best players to ONE TEAM. Here's how:

In the start menu before simming your season go to Team Management > Roster Management > Trade Player.

You can then trade Kobe Braynt, Tracy McGrady, Allen Iverson, Kevin Garnett, and Shaq all to the same team. If you then go to Season > New Seaon it will give you the option: 'YES, USE CURRENT SETTINGS AND ROSTERS.' Chose this option and you will be able to select the team you traded all the super star players to have a very stacked team.


To sim a season:
-From the opening menu go to ‘Season mode’
-Pick the team that you want
-Then when you get to the calendar of your season press . Now you should be at the last month of play.
-Navigate your way to the last game and press  over it.
-Select the option that says “simulate this game and all other up to it.”
-Now just sit back and watch the season sim. It will take about 5 minutes.

 

Using your super team and simming you will net you many of the season orieinted achievements.

Clinched Playoffs100
In Season Mode, this user's team has made the playoffs. 
If you sim a season with The Lakers or Spurs you will most likely get this.
See “All-Star” for simming tips.
Most Valuable Player150
In Season Mode, a player from this user's team has won the Most Valuable Player award. (5) 
If you sim a season with the Lakers you will most likely get this. The T-Wolves is also a good choice.
See “All-Star” for simming tips.
NBA Champions200
In Season Mode, this user has won the NBA Championship. 
This one can be tricky. I suggest using the Lakers or Spurs when simming. If it takes you more then about 10 sims I suggest you play out the playoffs manuals on rookie and win it that way. But if you keep simming seasons with the Lakers you will get this eventually.
See “All-Star” for simming tips.
Best Regular Season Record150
In Season Mode, this user's team had the best record at the end of the regular season. 
If you sim a season with a good team you will get this within a couple sims. I suggest the Lakers or Spurs.
See “All-Star” for simming tips.
Coach of the Year100
In Season Mode, the coach of the user team has won the Coach of the Year award. 
Just sim seasons a few times and you will most likely get this. It seems as if the Spurs are your best bet for getting this. The Lakers work fine as well but I personally think the Spurs are best for this achievement.
See “All-Star” for simming tips.
Rookie Difficulty Win10
This user has beaten a CPU opponent in a game set on Rookie difficulty. (2) 
You can win them with skills or use this strategy.
NOTE: If you switch teams any time during the game you will not receive the achievement!! Also if you win on Superstar you will not unlock the achievements for the lower difficulty ones. You must win four separate games.

Winning a game is easy on Rookie and Starter and if you understand how to play you should be able to get it playing legit. This next strategy works well on All-Star and Superstar. It can also be used just as well on Rookie and Starter though.

Setup:
From the opening menu set the setting to 2 minute quarters, and turn off all the fouls Make sure that when your in the game at the start go into the pause menu and turn off the shot clock. Then from the opening menu go to ‘Play Now.’ Pick the Western All Stars as your team and the other team a bad team. There are several 71 and 72 point teams, pick any of them. Then set the difficulty to what ever you are going for, Rookie, Starter, All-Star, or Superstar.

Quarter One:
First off you should get the opening tip off. It is very easy, just press  the second you see the ball start falling down and you should win. Then get the ball to anyone but Yao Ming and sprint for the basket. Use an  shot when you get close and slam-dunk. You should be able to score very easily; the AI is confused when it loses tip offs. If you do not Pause the game, go to Exit and then do restart. You will need this 2 point lead. Next try to either stop the other team from scoring with a steal or a rebound or whatever it takes. If you do not you should restart the game. Now just hold onto the ball on the wrong side of the court until there is 10-15 seconds left. Once this occurs run up and try to score once more. Make sure the other team does not have enough time to rebound and score.

Quarter Two:
It will not be a tip off now; it will be a throw in. The other team will be getting the ball right off the bat now. Make sure you don’t let the other team score. If they do score make sure it is either tied or you are in the lead. Then when it is your ball just chill on the wrong side of the court until there is 10-15 seconds left on the clock. Once this occurs run up and try to score once more. Make sure the other team does not have enough time to rebound and score.

Quarter Three:
This time you will start with the ball. Just run the ball back over the wrong side of the court and chill until there is 10-15 seconds left on the clock. Once this occurs run up and try to score once more. Make sure the other team does not have enough time to rebound and score.

Quarter Four:
This is wear you will need a little luck and skill. The other team will start with the ball. Make sure you steal it from them or rebound. At this point you want to either be tied or in the lead. If you are behind then you are best off trying to do it with skill only and ignoring this strategy. Now once you have the ball run to the wrong side of the court once again. If you are ahead or tied the enemy AI will follow you and try to steal the ball. To avoid them just run from sideline to sideline. Once there is 30 seconds left they will start intentionally fouling you. The first time this happens you will just get the ball again. Try to avoid being fouled again as long as you can to drain out the clock. The second time they foul you, you will get to shoot free throws! If you are good at them you can increase your lead even more! If you are not then you will still be in the lead. The other team will most likely rebound it and then call time out right away. Now you should be in the lead for a 20 second game. The other team will have the ball so try to rebound or steal it away. Once you get the ball back pass it around, as to avoid them fouling you, while making your way to the basket. Try to make an easy shot if possible. All this last information will most likely repeat itself a few times in the last 20 seconds, the AI is very foul friendly.

If you won and did not switch teams during the game the achievement will be yours!
