pat the baker.

Hint: Easy shots:
Before attempting a shot when you are closely guarded, try stepping back to clear space and increase your chances of making the basket. To step back, tap Right Analog-stick Down when you are standing and dribbling the ball. At any point during this move, you can press Shoot to launch your shot. This is also a great move if your player is standing just inside the arc and want to try a 3-pointer instead of a long-range 2.

Hint: Easy dynasty points:
Play a game under the rookie difficulty in dynasty mode and get 20 shots in a row. Just do dunks and play against a team with no shot blockers. You will get over 2000 dynasty points.
Shahriar Mahmud.

Simulate dynasty to the playoffs or pass the playoffs to the off-season. You should get a message on your PDA that states that you have received NBA Store points.The amount may vary. Go to NBA Store to see how many points you have, then exit. Save the settings but do not save the dynasty. Go to the main menu and load your settings. Go to NBA Store and buy items (shoes, throwbacks, accessories, etc.). When out of points, save your settings and repeat this trick.

Hint: Easy dynasty mode:
Before you start dynasty mode, trade Deshauwn Stevenson and Jameer Nelson for Brad Miller. Start dynasty mode, then play with Miller for about five games very well (only score points with him). However, make sure you win all of the games. Then, trade Brad Milller for Okufor on the Bobcats. You will win every game. Make sure you do not trade Francis, Howard, Hill, Cato, or Mobley. Mobley will try to leave at the end of the season -- resign him.

In dynasty mode, when simulating a regular season or finals game, if you are in the third quarter and it appears that you may lose go to "Play Game". Press X and you will return to the schedule or finals schedule. It will show that you have not played the game. You can then re-simulate the game until you get a desirable result.

Go to the "Settings" option at the start menu. Go to "Rules". Turn off all the rules except the shot clock. You can now run out of bounds, travel, and foul.

Start a season or dynasty mode. Choose your team then once go to the roster management screen. Select "Edit Player". You will then be able to set all the stats of all your players to 99. You should be able to win any games you play. Try playing as the New York Knicks and the only team you will have tiny chance of losing to is the Boston Celtics.
Danny Armitage.

Use the following trick to get an overall boost in dynasty mode. While in dynasty mode, go to "Roster Management". Then go to "Edit Player". Go to "Information", then change either the player's first position, second position, or number. Confirm the changes. The player should get a boost in overall. Note: Some players will decrease in overall if you change them, such as Emeka Okafor and Amare Stoudamire.

Hint: Easy points:
To get easy points, give the ball to your PG and use Direct Switch with your best dunker on the team. Then, set a pick and roll for the PG (or the ball handler). Move your person in the opposite direction of where the PG moved. When you are a few steps from the basketball, press Alley-Oop. This works at least 80% of the time. The best teams for this are those that have flashy players (the Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, or just a team that has a few dunkers)

Give the ball to a very good player such as Bryant, Iverson, Pierce, McGrady, etc., and call the Isolation play by pressing D-pad Left. Most times they will double team you and just pass the ball to the wide open player. He hopefully will make the shot. This will only work if you have trouble getting a shot. Be careful because it does not work all the time.

Before attempting a shot when you are closely guarded, try stepping back to clear space and increase your chances of making the basket. To step back, tap the C-stick Down when you are standing and dribbling the ball. At any point during this move you can press Shoot to launch your shot. This is also a great move if you find your player standing just inside the arc and want to try a three-pointer instead of a long-range two.

Hint: Franchise ratings change:
If you have a franchise, go to "Roster Management" and select "Edit Player". Choose any of your starters and put any pair of Jordan sneakers on that player. You will notice a ratings change on all five starters.

Hint: Guarding:
When playing defense, if you have trouble guarding the ball carrier try switching control to one of your big men down low in the paint and "roam" the key while your CPU teammate does the work up top guarding the ball carrier. This puts you in position to stop penetration easily and force your opponent to shoot from outside. If the big man you choose to control is also a Big Blocker (as indicated by the hand icon), he should be able to turn away even the best offensive players with fearsome blocks and in-air collisions. Playing tough defense is your key to victory when playing against the toughest opponents.

Hint: No look or behind the back pass:
Press Hop Step before the player land pass the ball. He should perform a no look pass or a behind the back pass. You may want to go to the replay to see it; at some of the camera angles you cannot see it happen.

Hint: Winning championships easily:
To win championships without playing, just save and simulate. If you lose, quit without saving and simulate again until you win.
Shahriar Mahmud.

Hint: Pump up the crowd:
When on defense, quickly press the C-stick Up and Down to egg on the crowd.

Tap the C-stick Up and Down to pump up the crowd. If your hold Right Analog-stick Up, it will just make your player put his hands up.

Hint: No three pointers:
Choose to play at the 1950s All-Star arena. There will be no three point line and all shots are worth two points.

Hint: Better season mode team:
Start a new season. Before anything else, go to "Free Agents", and sign the highest rated free agents you can find, such as Alonzo Mourning (70), and Karl Malone (69). Replace good free agents similar to them with your weaker bench players. With more high rated people on your team, you will be able to make more trades to get very good players on you team.

In season mode when trading, look for teams with one or more spots available on their roster. You can trade two or more lower ranked players for one of their higher-ranked people. Keep doing this with teams. You can then get even better people on your team. Using this and the previously mentioned "Better season mode team" hint will not be as effective in dynasty mode, because of the salary cap. However in season mode, it does not matter. By using both hints, it is possible to get a team with Allen Iverson, Shaq, Yao Ming, Peja Stojakovic, Manu Ginobili, and other decent players.
alex f.

There is an easy way to change a horrible team into a great team to use in dynasty mode. Trade all the bad players to other teams for great players before you begin the dynasty. For example, before starting dynasty mode with Atlanta, trade their starting five players for Shaq, Duncan, Mike Dunleavy, Kobe, and Gilbert Arenas. After doing this, save the settings, then begin the dynasty.

When playing in season mode, go to the "Roster Management" section then enter the sign/release area. Go through all the teams and gather all of the best fifteen players (for example, Kevin Garrnett) and sign them onto your team. You will have to release some of your current team players to get the better players. However, they will not come up under your team's trade players list.
Jackson Hobbs.

Hint: Announced home team starting line-up:
Press Start when the records for both teams appear while they are practicing.

Hint: Ripping shorts:
Perform a slam dunk with a center or power forward with a high power and dunk rating (for example: Shaquile O'Neil or Rasheed Wallace). When they do a two handed dunk and spread their legs, they will rip their shorts. You must use instant replay to see it.

Glitch: Individual practice:
Go to the other end of the court where the basket should be. Stand underneath and try to take a shot. The ball will hit the invisible backboard, fly into the air, and come back to you.
