View Full Version : How do I become a good point guard in my player?

I want to start my player mode as a point guard.
Which stats are important to improve?
Should I focus on scoring or more on assists?
How can I play good defense?

Both, for my player I maxed out his mid range, and layups. Gave him on ball defense maxed out, put up steals and passing. But first put up mid range and layups to score points.

Put up passing and ball security first so you don't get too many turnovers. That way you can have the ball more and have more chances for assists and scoring. Score, but be sure to keep an eye out for any good passes. If you don't think you can score, you probably can't. Pass the ball around. Hope this helped. :)

Which type of PG should I select in the begining?
Does the size and weight of my player matter?Whats a good size/weight for a PG?

Oh and for type I have 3 PT Specialist.

Mine is 6'3" and 190 pounds. Mine's doing pretty well averaging around 20 PPG and about 5 APG. Not the best PG out there but he's getting there.

How can I get my teamplay-rating up?

I essentially created myself, 6'2 204, All-Around type. I have spent the majority of my skill points on 3 pt shooting, ball handling, passing and stamina (although the coach now thinks it's a good idea to play me 39 minutes a game, more than Melo and Amare). After about 15 games I'm averaging 12 ppg, 5 assists and about 1.5 steals. Many of my assists come from drives/post ups to kickouts to open jump shooters, although I would have more if the AI was smarter. Since you're a PG you should be the distributor so focus on assists, although depending on the team you're on you may want to be scoring more also. Defensively just try to stay in front of your man, and call for double teams if need be. I get absolutely dominated by the elite fast PG's like Chris Paul, Rose and Wall, although I actually outplayed Deron Williams. Again, if the computer AI wasn't moronic (especially at the end of games) you would probably have more realistic assist totals.

I created myself though I cheated on the size ^^ I'm actually 5,9 but I made me 6,2. Anyway, I selected to be a scoring PG so I could shoot from mid-range and easily collect points. I tried to improve my 3Pt's aswell, I'm around 81 now and shoot like 48% from long-range. My best game was 29 points, eventhough I'm not a starter yet. I play for the Suns, they traded Nash and somehow got Rubio. So I'm the sixth man and play mostly SG besides Rubio which sucks btw. My passing is pretty poor too. 1,8 APG for PG after 12 games is pretty bad but I'm trying to get more points then assists so I can prevent as many turnovers as possible. My average teamgrade is B- since I always lose points on Reach-In's and lost defensive rebounds.

Btw. Why are my ai-teammates always running behind the only defender on fastbreaks? I try to pass them when they are free but then they hide behind the defender so I commit a turnover.

I made an athletic PG 6'3 I avg 10ppg and 7apg. I play for the Pacers where I just became the starter and they set a lot of screens for Granger and other good shooters I just had a 20 assist and then a 13 assist game so its really easy to get those assist also look for the open man in transition it can get you an extra 2-3 assist a game.

So on an Athletic PG what attributes should I raise up.I spent my skill points on pass and ball security so I wont get turnovers.What's next?

12-30-2011, 10:29 AM
Probably the usual ones you still need as PG: layup, mid-range, inside, 3pt...That's at least how I would do it, but I probably would do that for any kind of PG, I don't really know how the attributes of an athletic differ from a scoring or passing first PG

You shouldn't use 3pt specialist as your play style because it has lower attribute caps than any other position. Otherwise it's up to you.

I raised my Pass, On ball D, and D awr. Cause getting slaughtered on every defensive play and not being able to stay infront of your man gets frustrating really quick. Next I raised my Mid range shot to about 85 cause the cpu still sags off you at that rating and you can make most of your jumpers

i used a 3pt specialist to start off because it allows you to score the easiest mid-range and 3pt starts around 80 yes everything else is pretty low but scoring gets you off the bench quickly in my rookie year i average 20.8ppg 7.4 assist 2 rebounds and 2.4 stl and 2.3 turnovers and went to the all-star game won rookie of year 2nd team defense and 3rd team nba and came in second for mvp. so far i have played 4 seasons and have won 4 nba titles, 3mvp, 4 finals mvp, 3 defensive player of the year, 2 league leader in assist, 3 league leader scoring, 4 league leader steal and 2 league leader minutes and i have passed numerous records

for me, 3point specialist, and work on 3 point, mid range, and passing. hitting threes is hella easier, and eventually leaves other guys open for easy assists. 1 season down, average 32 points, 8 assists, and 5 steals, won mvp, and if it will stop freezing after the clinching game, eventual nba champ and finals mvp. its a great formula for success
