    one of the first you mean. Don't sleep on the real G.O.A.T MJ


    SF the last king


    the next anthony davis




    https://2kmtcentral.com/21/lineups/edit/132884 what cards if any should i sell to make way for new players?


    i have him and he is built diffrent




    best card in game


    this player is not ruby tim legler


    fire card he is my favorite player on my team


    they really gave him HOF Range on this card, might be the best in the game. Wes Unseld at SF.


    i didnt even realise this one had hof range Imao i assumed they were the same


    yea they're usually the same, it's the same thing with dark matter MJ

    Show 34 replies...

    Way better than wes -_-


    no, he's really not THAT much better


    Movement, handles, position badges, stats everything.


    they both have the important stats/badges, you can't say movement when you've used neither, they both have good dribble sigs with HOF QFS unpluckable h4d and stuff


    Lefty = advantage


    no, same release and lefty vs righty is preference I actually prefer right


    Better badges


    except for pick-pocket and maybe HOF Chasedown that's not noticeable, stats are basically all 99 with coach and HOF Floor general


    https://2kdb.net/compare/8869/8923 Defense huge


    yeh i didnt bother checking


    yeh not like any of us are getting the first dark matters


    Yeh not for another month


    lol probably


    At least unless I get drob or they make gasol a dark matter


    gasol's not gonna be a dark matter since cedric isn't


    yeh :(


    I mean you're not going for him anymore so


    Yeh I haven’t got a ring this week, I’m not gonna bother now


    yes I still have never played limited, it's not worth it tbh like russ and gordon have been bang average by the week people got them


    yeh but they havent released his stats and stuff yet, i would play but i got a shit team this week


    yeh in the future limited will be kinda broken with the dark matter coaches though


    every card will have 90+ everything soon anyway


    yeah but they convert gold badges to HOF


    most cards will have everything HOF, it will be good for budget cards but if you can afford the coaches you wouldnt be using budget cards


    yeh that's true not everything HOF though


    most not wrth the 3 million+ login


    true it's so weird we all assumed it would be a player


    yeh lol


    Gasol has the 4th worst release in the game


    they might change it


    They’re not, it’s a limited reward.


    Too small of name too


    Gasol finna be terrible, and for sure not a dark matter.


    Yeh I highly doubt it but idk


    W card art


    Beware! Zion is the face of the NBA and makes them hundreds of millions each year. We have about one year I'd say, maybe 2 max, maybe 6 months, untill ZioN is GOAT in 2k.

    After one full season (or even half a season of him at 25ppg 10+rpg 4+spg 1.5spg 1.0 bpg at his high efficiency he will be the 2k BEAST like a few others have been.

    Remember Yao? Yes he was 7'4" and great when healthy, he rarely was healthy... But made the NBA hundreds of millions of dollars. Billions maybe. He was rated high quick.. but also was a video game giant inside with his shooting touch and 7'4" size. Somehow his defense was never the mediocrity it was in his career though. He couldn't move laterally... But it didn't matter. From 2005-2010 in all those 2ks I remember half the games I played online were against houston as everyone cheesed with Yao inside n midrange. He'd anchor D and block 5 shots too. Reality was Yao could never play great D, most guys 7'1 to 7'6 would block 4-8 shots a night if playing 32 minutes a game..... Of course that never mattered to 2k.... I hater it and was often the lAkers my home team, Bynum couldn't stop Yao from going for 45 and 25 in those 2k8 days, Yao would always score more than half the points of those rockets but he was unstoppable. Pick and roll with Tmac and Yao was impossible to guard.

    Then Lebron was born. He could shoot at 6'8 but was a 2 way monster... By nba 2k9 he was the best, and 2k10-15 the NBA 2K GOAT. He deserved it.. he's amazing talent. But 2k always let his rating be high, but his animations, strength, badges or skills over the years were insane. He was unstoppable. His mediocre 3pt shooting then was never a weakness in 2k. Or his mediocre FT shooting. His defense was good in reality not great to DPOY level like games made him. He was 40/15/10 glory in those 2k10s online. 40 of those 60 team points.

    Just like Yao, LEBRON made them hundreds of millions in that span and still does. Yes he's still one of the best players in the world. But I'm 2009 he wasn't a lock defensive anchor nor a 3pt shooter. Didn't matter for 2k...

    But ZION will become gOD of 2k in about a year or so, and very possibly the face of the next 2k22 game. If he plays 25 more games at the same or higher level of efficiency he will become a 90-95 overall God by 2k22, though I'm sure that 2k21 will have a huge update after the nba season starts in the fall. But we all need to brace ourselves. Zion will be a god. You take the fact he is already an all-star caliber player of quality that needs to only improve his shooting (which isn't as big a deal for a PF like himself that can jump and run out of the gym), he will improve. His nonexistent defense to not get in foil trouble will turn into above average defense that is all he needs to become. Though potentially could be a threat on both ends as he acclimated to pace. If Zion could very possibly come out a polished and game impacting 25-30ppg 12rpg 5apg 2spg 1bpg 57%FG in 33mibutrs or so a night. And he doesn't need to improve or shoot 3s to do that. If he can reliably shoot 35% or better from shooting open threes the 4-5 open looks he can take them with confidence. Anything higher than 33% is a positive shooting deep. He can easily be 40% in time. 6 months, or 2 years.

    Either way he'll be a 95 overall with his huge body and strength and athleticism with those long arms and 45" vertical. But he has high bball IQ like a veteran, he's improved rapidly already. His shots only getting better each month... Each day. This guy is the face of the NBA already after 25 games. He's already up with Lebron in terms of pure fans drawn from their likeness. Zion can jump over you, jump through you, or even hopstep floater or fade on you with finesse. His free throw will go from weakness to a strength. 75% at the least. By then he's a 96 overall with 50 badges Hof.

    Zion is a great defender. But he's also a great/elite scorer and slasher and creator for himself and others. As a #1 option from day 1 in the NBA (very few NBA stars know what it's like, KG great example), offense running through you half the time or more on the court. You only have so much energy as a human. As well as personal fouls dictating defensive aggression, when you need to score 25 a night you can't be in foul trouble. Zion has quickly learned this and will master the balance beter with time and games played. But he will always need to be on the court for 35 minutes a night thus not be the defensive anchor he could be. Jordan had Pippen to guard the best perimeter guy. Kobe n Shaq had Rick Fox. Lebron and wade even had Battier.

    By 2k22, I bet 5 months after it's release we are all on here sick of how unstoppable Zion base roster player truly is. Online verses matches will be half Pelicans ran squads. Much like the recent Ben Simmons PG Philly squad lineup being the GOAT to match Bucks. Zion will go for 40 of 60 points, grab 12-15 boards, dish 7 dimes, snag 4 steals and block 3 shots contesting another 8 to miss. Hell rebound and go full court with his handle, speed, size and strength, go behind the back at half court to attack dribble eurostep cross key to a gather and explosive dunk. When guarded well he will pump fake and then float a ball in an majority of the time. Hell jump over and through your defense as I try to charge draw but instead blocking foul and one opportunity.

    I want to come here in 18-36 months and know I was right about this. Zion will be God and goat in 2k earlier than we thought, and it's going to last year's, maybe more. If Zion plays 25 more games at a level even better than his first 25 we are doomed.

    Zion can do everything. There's no true weakness. While his 3pt shooting needs to get better, we forget he's a power forward, hell a small ball lineup he will play Center in, and has more fans than most the other NBA AllStars who are 10 year vets.

    At his freight train size and insane foot speed, agility quickness and power to compliment the skills and ball handling ability he has to match his hoops IQ and passing, he's a freak. Grabbing a defensive board with him will result in a fastbreak finish by Zion or whoever he dishes to on the attack with numbers.

    I'm actually surprised he's not more unstoppable already. I almost find it disrespectful he's an 84 and average animations n physics with him. Other 22 and 7 guys like Jay Brown, Siakam, DeRozan, Griffin, even Julius Randle I am as good with on 2k. I know it was only 22 games but I watched 20 of them and he's a stud... 22 and 6 in what always felt like 2/3 an actual game with him.

    We are lucky his PD Card from last year's myteam isn't his stock card yet. Haha.
