    ridiculous challenge, blocks are literally luck lmao. still has that set shot he's decent


    There are some strategies according to YouTube comments which might work:

    You can run out directly under the basket. Afterwards the CPU often passes below the basket to try layups.
    You can roll in the ball by holding triangle. The CPU will often try a dunk or layup.
    Extend the game with Overtime until you have the blocks.


    1. yea I always do that for blocks but you usually just get a contest
    2. roll in the ball?
    3. hard to extend to OT lol you can't control the CPU


    Just this minute, I managed, but I needed 2 OT. For OT, just mirror the points of the CPU and let the clock run out when It's close to the end.
    As you said blocks are often just luck. For some minutes I don't get a block and then 3 in a row.
    Running out under the basket seems to work best.
    Rolling in the ball works with holding triangle. But afterwards, you have to make sure that the CPU is picking the ball. I just managed 2 blocks with this.
    Of course, the lineup is important. Size matters. Put an OOP PG. SG Manute Bol got most of my blocks.
    If I, officially the worst shot blocker, can manage it, you can also.


    oh yeah a tall lineup definitely helps, it probably just takes a few tries to get lucky with the blocks


    Just try it and take your best shot blockers. I used Divac, Manute, Ferry, Kareem, Mutombo and some others on the bench.


    idk I'm probably not gonna get Tacko anyway


    I know. Tacko is impossible for me as well. I even don't manage to get Russell. I just like Hakeem. Additionally, I rather play offline and spotlights provide some challenges.


    yea to be fair this year's spotlights are less boring than 2k20's


    second best player in NBA history, change my mind


    Hello guys!
    What do you think about this rotation? Would you change anything?
    Thanks for any advice!
