Bonuses

Have a saved game file from another EA Sports game on your memory card to receive special rewards such as shoes and points that you can use to buy jerseys.

Easy shots

When you are playing one-on-one, you can always hold position of the ball . When you are going to shoot for position, fake very fast for awhile. You will start to scoot up to the net . Shoot from wherever desired.

Easy 100% shooting percentage for team

Use the following trick for an easy 100% Shooting Percentage For Team (minimum 20 shots) for 2,500 NBA Store Points. First, create a player with maxed out stats (Height, Weight, Skills) and make him a PG. Sign him to your team, re-order your roster so he starts, and choose to play the Charlotte Bobcats in an exhibition game, on the rookie difficulty setting. Use the "Double team" play on defense to steal the ball and create easy fast break dunks or have your maxed out PG back down the opposing teams PG for easy buckets in the paint. Make a minimum of twenty consecutive baskets and end the game without missing a shot. You will then receive 2,500 points towards items in the NBA Store.

Easy dynasty mode

Go to the "Edit Players" option under "Team Management" and max out all the stats of the players on the team that you want to use in dynasty mode. Save the roster so that you can use it in your dynasty. Go to dynasty mode and it will load your roster. Your team will have maxed out stats.

Easy dynasty mode points

Before you start your dynasty mode, put all of the All-Star caliber players in one team. Then, simulate through the entire season in dynasty mode to earn points for unlocking items.

Increasing player rating in dynasty mode

This trick requires at least 300 dynasty points to buy a one game coach that helps the centers, forwards or guards. This may not work for coaches who coach an entire team. Then, switch every player on your team to that position. For example, switch all your players to centers first then buy the big man coach who will raise your players inside scoring by four. Then, go back and edit your players again to their correct position except for the centers. Make them a power forward or something else. Then, re-order your line-up to your liking and simulate one game (since you bought a one game coach). Go back and edit your centers to their correct positions. Look at the ratings, and your players should all have had their inside scoring increased by four. If you have at least 10,000 dynasty points, you can buy a team plane or new team locker room which raises your FG shooting by four each home road or home game. To take advantage of this, buy a plane or locker room, start a game, and look at the rating to see if it went up then quit the game. If you go player stats and look at the ratings, you should notice your players FG shooting is up by four.

Getting great players for low salaries

When you are in "Sign Free Agents" in the off-season of your franchise and you see a very good person at a very high price ($300,000), just skip the free agent signing and get to the new season. When you are done with training camp go to "Sign Free Agents". If the player that you want is still there, he will usually ask for the minimum price.

Dunk off backboard

This is best done in practice mode. Line up with the basket and press Dunk above or directly below the 3 point line to make the ball bounce off the backboard. Then, run to the basket and press Y to jump and dunk the ball. This may require a few attempts.

Dunk packages

Each player is given a dunk package that determines what types of dunks/lay-ups they will do. For example, Shaquille O'Neal will do hard dunks while Vince Carter does aerial dunks.

See Iverson's tattoos

To see the tattoos on Iverson's right arm, go to "Edit Players". Then, go to "Upper Body" and remove the sleeve on his arm.

Improved gameplay

Use the following slider settings to keep your gameplay more realistic. Before the start of the game, switch sides and go in to "Settings", then "Playbook", then "Team Strategy". Turn "Crash Boards" on, and switch back to your original team. This results in a lot less unrealistic amount of fastbreaks.
