When your opponent is backing you down, press "Taking Charge" to get the CPU to foul you.
Pause game play, then change the controller setting to the CPU. Resume game and after the CPU has shot the freethrow, pause game play again and change the controller setting back to its original value.
When you get possession of the ball, pass it to someone who is known to have good dunking abilities. You can usually tell if they are good dunkers when they have the icon with a shoe and lightning. Players such as Jerry Stackhouse, Vince Carter, Kobe Bryant, and Tracy McGrady are good choices. You also need to make sure that your player has good dribbling skills. Move around near the three point line. Do a few crossovers and spins on your opponent, and he will usually trip slightly. Then, press [Turbo] to make a drive into the basket. Hold [Shoot] until your player is ready to dunk the ball.
Easy ball possession
Play a game with all penalties off. As the CPU has the ball out of bounds, quickly press [Start], and turn "Out Of Bounds" on. Press [Start] again to resume. The CPU will be called out of bounds, and you will get the ball. Note: This trick only works if you turn out of bounds on when the CPU is out of bounds, with the ball in hand.
Hold the Right "Freestyle" and your player with raise his hands. This works better with tall players. Hold the "C-stick Up" and run into the player. It should be a foul, and he will usually lose the ball for you to pick up.
Change the game type to "Arcade" and select the desired rules for the game. It has a much slower game speed and easier control.
Take the sleeve off his right hand to see more tattoos that the NBA has banned Iverson from showing because they consider them inappropriate.
Make Iverson bald with no headband to see two tattoos of girls kissing.
Change players ratings
You can change player ratings in regular season or franchise mode at any time while your team is in the playoffs. Just go to "Team Management", then "Edit Player". Select a player on your team and you will be able to choose the "Ratings" option. You can now change that player's ratings in any way desired. You cannot do this during the regular season. You can also change a player's gear any time you desire (for example, socks, armbands, etc.)
Dunk from the freethrow line Michael Jordan or Julius Irving
During practice or exhibition mode select either 90's All-Star Michael Jordan or 80's All-Star Julius Irving anytime during a game. Get clear enough to jump from the freethrow line and dunk. Note: This will not work during a one-on-one game.
If you are playing in franchise mode, try to stay above.500 in winning percentage. If you go under .500, most of the time fans will stop going to your games.
Signing free agents
If a player refuses to sign with your team, try offering him a longer contract.
More players want to sign
If you want more or better players on your team, win the championship. Players will ask for longer term deals, but for 300,000 points.
Sign good free agents when over the salary cap
In the off season of franchise mode, when you get to the option to sign free agents, skip over it. Select the option to trade players. The game will confirm that you want to skip signing free agents. Answer "Yes". If you leave at least four roster spots open, the CPU will automatically sign free agents for you on one year, 30,000 point contracts. The better the year your team has had, the better the players you will get. Also, the more roster spots you leave open, the more players you will get.
Franchise mode All-Star game
In franchise mode, no player less than 85 in overall rating can be chosen as an All-Star player in the All-Star game during February. The CPU randomly picks players who have high ratings and are on the "League Leaders" list.
Starting in franchise mode
The first thing you should do when beginning franchise mode is to release all your minimum salary (30,000 points) players that have ratings below 73 to sign other players that have higher ones. For example, if you have Jannero Pargo in your Lakers franchise, he has a salary that is 30,000 points with an overall rating of 72. Release him and sign Tim Hardaway for the same 30,000 point value. You will get a better deal because Tim Hardaway has an 80 rating. Try to make a strong bench line so that when one of your starters gets injured, a good replacement can fill in for that person.
Glitch: Extra time
Start a game and at the end of the quarter, keep the ball. You will have four or five more seconds to play around or shoot.
