My First NBA 2K18 Perfect Release Brick



It turns out that the "Perfect" green beam release in NBA 2K18 isn't so perfect. Here's a quick video showing the proof. It would totally suck if this happened in in the closing seconds of a tight game.

I've done some research about the "perfect" green release in NBA 2K. Apparently, a green release shot will have a higher chance of going in, but it doesn't guarantee that it will.

Interesting. Franklin said it best, "...in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”

NBA 2K18 MyTEAM Weekly Challenges Rewards


This week (begins every Friday) marks the final MyTEAM Weekly Challenges token to unlock overall 89 ruby '07 San Antonio Spur Bruce Bowen.

If you need a 3-point shooter, this card will certainly fill that void. With a 95 open/94 contested shot 3pt attribute rating, this ruby Bruce Bowen card puts him at the top of the elite small forwards that can shoot.

For me personally, the first weekly challenges rewards card, sapphire Dee Brown, didn't do much. I was already overloaded with great guards at the one position but this Bruce Bowen card will definitely get some playing time.

If you're keeping up with these weekly challenges then you don't need me to tell you that overall 92 amethyst '08 New Jersey Net Kenyon Martin is next for the unlocking. This card is an absolute beast at the boards. He'll be cleaning the glass for sure.

So who's next after Kenyon? Who knows but I've found these online predictions from fellow gamers:
  1. Dee Brown (done)
  2. Bruce Bowen (done)
  3. Kenyon Martin (current)
  4. Shawn Kemp
  5. Rick Barry
  6. David Robinson
  7. Nate Thurmond
If these predictions are correct, there won't be any Laker weekly challenge reward cards. That sucks. Last year I was able to unlock pink diamond Elgin Baylor.

If you have your predictions that differ from this list, leave your comments below. I will be sure to post them in my update post.

Rim Rockers Complete Collection Reward Ruby Overall 88 '02 Kobe Bryant



So it finally happened. Since my addiction playing the NBA 2K MyTeam game mode years ago, I've earned my first Frobe (Younger #8 donning Kobe Bryant with a fro).

I've never found it important to get Frobe since 2K will inevitably release a higher gem Kobe virtual card later, however this year, Frobe is a rewards card which makes him rare and not as exhausted in online gameplay. 

Rare v-cards come with a hefty price tag though. It's going to either cost you a lot monetarily or take a lot of your time to earn the necessary MT to get this card. For me personally, the entire Rim Rockers collection cost me over 400K MT. This is by far the most MT I've spent for just one card. Call me foolish, but what can I say, I'm a HUGE Kobe fan.

I will share some gameplay soon. I  just wanted to post something quick about my latest Laker squad addition. Pretty exited to cheese his 97 contact dunk and 92 speed with ball attribute ratings.
