NBA 2K17 MyTEAM Lakers Lineup

After grinding it out to get my 1100th card, I finally got my last MT reward. So, what do you do with 40K MT to spend? Grind it out some more to get another 50+ cards or just YOLO in the new year by picking up a big gem card?

Screw it, I went ahead and purchased an auctioned amethyst historic Magic for just under 50K MT. I had to sell several more cards to get to that needed 50K MT but it was well worth it. This was my second biggest card purchase given I've only done this for one other player - Ruby Moments Curry. My luckiest pack opening pull however came in the hands of an amethyst historic Kobe so it was only fitting that I get his predecessor to compliment my Lakers squad.

It's actually VERY fun to play my Lakers lineup online. Opponents get a kick out of me reliving the showtime era with Magic's signature no-look dimes. When I use my elite squad online I often find myself playing against similar cards so to break the monotony I occasionally use this Lakers lineup.

My current Lakers lineup as shown above: 1) Magic 2) The GOAT 3) Big Shot Robert Horry 4) Sleepy Sam Perkins 5) The Flop Vlade Divac 6) Coop 7) Gold Moments Swaggy P 8) Emerald Moments Lou Williams 9) Nick Van Exel 10) Rick Fox 11) Lakers (current) team collection reward Darrall Imhoff 12) Gold Moments Julius Randle 13) Rudy Larusso.

I have Dick Barnett (83) on rotation with Larusso. Below are all other Lakers that can be picked up for cheap or for high MT - for instance, you can grab Wilt for 100K+ if your bid is high enough. I just checked and there's a current bid of 222K!!!

I have my eyes on rubies A.C. Green and Byron Scott. How does NBA 2K17 release Laker Historic Dwight Howard over Shaq? Haha.

My one regret in this game was picking up Diamond Ben Wallace over Diamond George Mikan as my Historic Domination reward player. If I would have known I was going to create my all-time Lakers squad I would have grabbed Mikan. Dang it!
