Defeating Michael Jordan:
Defeat Michael Jordan one on one in superstar mode to unlock him on the roster.
Although the following trick can be done with any point total to win, 11 is
probably the best. Choose Jeff Hornacek to play against Michael Jordan. After
getting the ball, just shoot three-pointers. Michael will not guard you until
your start to make a lot of shots or get a big lead. When he does start to
guard, back up a few feet from the three point line and shoot the ball. He
will not guard and you can still make the basket. Note: Make sure to release
ball at the top of your jump. Jeff Hornacek will not always make it, so only
shoot the three-pointer on every other shot. He should make about 90% if he
shoots every other shot. Try to drive on every possession when you do not
shoot a three.
Another strategy is to use Willis Reed. Back Jordan into the lane, and then
shoot within five inches of the basket. Jordan cannot block Reed, and Reed
can also use a deadly jumper if he is less than 25 feet from the hoop.
Another strategy is to use Oscar Robertson, since he is a good all-around
player, could can shoot and post-up.
Another strategy is to create a player that is very tall, with 99 in all
attributes. Just post up and shoot three pointers.
Another strategy is to use John Stockton. After getting the ball, move back
a little and shoot 3-pointers. Shoot the ball at the top of your jump. When
playing defense, just defend the best that you can.
Use Reggie Miller and drain threes. If your friend creates a 7'10 monster
and you cannot get a shot off, use Miller again. As soon as you get the
ball, run backwards a step and fling a deep fadeaway - or drive in and back
him down as far as you can. Instead of letting the ball go at the peak of
your jump, let go as soon as you can and the ball will go through his chest.
Start a one-on-one game with a friend. Pump fake to get him/her to jump.
Then, just go right around your opponent with a spectacular dunk or nasty
To get fifteen 3-point baskets in a game, your best players to do this are
very streaky, but decent shooters (Bird, Rick Barry, Iverson, Glen Rice,
Tim Hardaway, etc.). Many times with these players, you can either kick it
out to them from the low post and shoot, or (which is better most times),
if you are going on the fast break, pull-up from 3 point range. You still
have to shoot at the top of your jump, but with streaky shooters, you have
a great chance of hitting several in a row, even if you do not shoot from
the top of your jump.
Try using Glenn Rice from the Lakers, or John Stockton from the Jazz. Use
as many chances as you can get -- set it up for 8.
Getting fifteen steals:
Use a good point guard (preferably) with quick hands (Iverson, Kidd, Payton,
Stoudamire, Brandon, and Knight are probably the best). Follow the ball.
There are times when you can strip someone off the dribble, but that may be
difficult (Kidd and Isiah Thomas do that the best). The easiest way is to
strip a player trying to post-up down low, and your guard (the player you
are controlling) comes on the double-team; but wait until the post player
starts his dribble. You will steal the ball a lot by doing this.
Try getting the Triple-Double with points, assists, and steals.
Create a player that is 7'10" and around 270-280 pounds. Make him a point
guard with 99 in all attributes. He should be able to rebound, block shots,
steal, score, and dish out assists very well. You should be able to get
more than one legend by getting the fifteen steals and thirty assists.
