|Get drafted as a lottery pick in the NBA draft in MyCAREER mode.||(4)|
To get this trophy, you need to be drafted early. Picks 1 to 14 are considered to be lottery picks. In the Rookie Showcase (which happens immediately after creating your character), try to get good statistical scores, and a good teammate grade. After the game is the interview process. 3 teams will interview you, and you have to answer questions they ask. These questions impact how the teams perceive you, and affects when you are drafted. The club will mention what number their draft pick is, so you’ll want to answer positively to attract them to pick you.

|Some more Special than Others|
|Purchase and equip 5 Special Abilities simultaneously in MyCAREER mode.|
Special Abilities, also known as Signature Skills, are abilities that you can apply to your MyPlayer. From the main MyCareer menu go to: Player > Player Upgrades > Signature Skills. You must buy 5 different Signature Skills for this trophy to unlock (multiple levels of the same skill does not count). The Special Abilities will automatically be equipped. If you want the cheapest 5 options it will cost 1550 VC (or SP if you’re playing in an offline MyCareer). The cheapest purchases are:
Gatorade Prime Pack – Other – 50 VC
|Purchase a pre-game ritual in MyCAREER mode.||(1)|
A pre-game ritual can cost anywhere from 50 to 2500 VC (or SP if you’re playing in an offline MyCareer). From the main MyCareer menu go to: Player > Player Upgrades > Animations, then press :L2: or :R2: until you get to the pre-game rituals. Purchase one from the list to get the trophy.
|Both Feet on the Ground|
|Sign an endorsement contract with either Nike® or Jordan in MyCAREER mode.||(1)|
After playing well for a number of games in MyCareer you will get the option to sign with either Nike or Jordan. Simply choose either option and you will get this trophy.
|Come Fly with Me|
|Purchase Michael Jordan's dunk package (Historic Jordan) in MyCAREER mode.||(1)|
The Historic Jordan dunk package costs 5000 VC (or SP if you’re playing an offline MyCareer). From the main MyCareer menu go to: Player > Player Upgrades > Animations, then press :L2: or :R2: until you get to the dunk packages. Historic Jordan will be at the top of the list. Although this dunk package requires an 80 dunk rating to use, you can still get the trophy if you purchase it without the required dunk rating.
|Make a donation to the NBA Cares global community outreach initiative in MyCAREER mode.|
This trophy may be glitched.
It costs 500 VC to donate to NBA Cares. To get this trophy, go to the social media page from your MyCareer menu (Player > Social Media). From there press to boost your popularity, then :L2: or :R2: to get to the Fan Support page, where you can donate to NBA Cares.
|MyPLAYER of the Game|
|Be named Player of the Game (in an NBA game) in MyCAREER mode.|
In a game with your NBA team, you need to perform outstandingly and win the game. To perform outstandingly, simply score the most points or get a double-double or triple-double. It also helps if you have a good teammate rating, and if you were doing better than your matchup (which is the person that plays your position on the opposing team).
|My Every Day Player|
|Become a starter in the NBA in MyCAREER Mode.|
To become a starter for your NBA team, aim to get a good teammate grade. Aim to get an A+, which shouldn’t be too hard. Take good shots, set picks, have good ball movement, etc. Also, you will need good stats (points, assists, rebounds, etc.). If you want to speed this process up, try to get drafted to a team where a star player isn’t playing the same position as you. For example, if your player is a center, you would prefer to be drafted by the Houston Rockets rather than the Los Angeles Lakers, as Dwight Howard has a much higher rating than Omer Asik.
|Be named an NBA All-Star in MyCAREER mode.|
To become an All-Star, you need to have good stats and high popularity in the league. You can use VC (or SP in offline mode) to improve your popularity by donating to charities. To have good stats is to simply play well in your games. If you set your games to 12 minutes quarters and simulation to 5 minutes quarters, your stats should look far better than your competition. You do not need to be a starter on the All-Star team to earn this trophy.
|Make the Hall of Fame in MyCAREER mode.||(1)|
To enter the Hall of Fame, you need to complete 10 of 15 objectives and then retire your player. The goals below are for a center, and will differ depending on your position:
|Obtain a balance of 20,000 VC.||(4)|
Any type of game mode you play, you will earn VC coins to use for MyPlayer or with MyTeam. You MUST have 20,000 VC in your current balance. It does not matter how much total VC you have earned, but only how much VC you have currently to unlock the trophy. You must be online in order to get/use VC.
|Make a game winning shot with no time left on the clock in a non-simulated game.||(1)|
In the dying seconds of the game, you either need to be losing or tied with the opposing team. When the game clock (not shot clock) in the 4th quarter is about to hit zero, let loose a shot, and if it goes in and gives you the lead, then you will win the game and obtain this trophy.
|Record a triple double with any player in a non-simulated game.|
To get this trophy, you will need to get 10+ in any 3 statistics (points, assists, rebounds, blocks or steals). The easiest 3 statistics are going to be points, assists, and rebounds. I suggest getting rebounds first, as it is the most difficult of the 3 to get. Use or + specific button to select the player you want to control, and push to jump and attempt to grab the ball when it hits the rim and bounces out. Next are the assists, which are awarded when you pass the ball to a player who then proceeds to score a basket. For this, you simply want to pass the ball to your best shooter and score with that player. Lastly are points, which you will get by putting the ball into the basket.
|Record two double doubles with any teammates in the same non-simulated game.|
You will need to record 10+ in two statistical areas with 2 different players on the same team in one game. For this, I would suggest choosing points, and one of either rebounds or assists. Also, both of these players can have identical double doubles (both of them have 10+ in points and assists). Picking a team such as the Miami Heat will net this trophy easily. Have LeBron James pass the ball to Dwayne Wade and score with Wade. Repeat this 9 times so that James has 10 assists and Wade has 20+ points. Repeat this process switching the roles of James and Wade
|Five by Five|
|Record 5 or more in 5 different stats with any player in a non-simulated game.||(1)|
This trophy requires you to get 5+ in points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocks. I suggest attempting this trophy with any high rated player. Focus on blocks first, as they are the most difficult. When a player is about to shoot the ball, have the selected blocker move in front of the player and push when you think the shooter will release it. Next, you want to attempt steals, which is accomplished by pushing beside the player with the ball. Then you should attempt rebounds, points, and assists.
|Make 15 or more 3-pointers with any team in a non-simulated game.|
Just score 15 3-points in one game to get this trophy (score the ball from beyond the arc). Any player on the team can make the shot. To make this easy, turn up 3PT success to 100 in the game sliders, and you’ll have this before the first quarter ends. Can be done in conjunction with Raining 3’s.
|Record 10 or more blocks with any team in a non-simulated game.||(1)|
Block the ball 10 times in one game to get this trophy. When a player is about to shoot the ball, have the selected blocker move in front of the player and push when you think the shooter will release it. You can turn up the game slider on blocks to 100 if you’re having trouble with this trophy
|Men of Steal|
|Record 10 or more steals with any team in a non-simulated game.||(1)|
Steal the ball 10 times in one game to get this trophy. Simply go beside your opponent with the ball, and press to steal it. Make sure not to mash as you’ll probably get a reach-in foul. You can turn up game sliders for steals to 100, and turn down the game sliders for reach-in foul to 0 if you’re having trouble with this one.
|Swat and Swipe|
|Record at least 5 blocks and 5 steals with any team in a non-simulated game.||(1)|
See Block Party and Men of Steal
|Hold the opposing team's FG% below 40% with any team in a non-simulated game.|
Simply prevent the opposing team from scoring 40% or more of their shots. You can alter the game sliders so that the CPU’s offense is at 0 for each category making it highly unlikely for them to get any points. Also, if you have a second controller, chuck the ball whenever the second controller gets it to ensure a FG% of 0.
|Giveth and Taketh Away|
|Record 10 or more rebounds and assists with any player in a non-simulated game.|
Get 10 rebounds and assists with a single player in a single game to get this trophy. In the game sliders under attributes, you can turn up your rebounding (offensive and defensive) to 100, while turning your opponents' to 0. To help with assists, turn the success of close shots and/or 3 pointers to 100, so that from any given pass, you can score a bucket easily.
|Hold the Fat Lady|
|Start the 4th period losing by 10 or more points and win with any team in a non-simulated game.||(1)|
You have to finish the 3rd quarter of a game where you are losing by 10 or more points. In the next quarter, you can do a number of things: play good defense to prevent the opposing team from scoring coupled with good offense to close the score, or let the opposing team score 2 pointers (or free throws) while you focus on making 3 pointers. You have to win the game to get this trophy to pop. You can also force the game into overtime and win, which will still get you the trophy.
|Wire to Wire|
|Do not allow your opponent to lead the game at any point with any team in a non-simulated game.|
To get this trophy, you need to score the first basket of the game, and from that point on, you cannot lose the lead at any point. Once you finish the game, the trophy will pop. You can alter the game sliders so that the opposing team has 0 in all offensive and defensive categories while your team has 100 for assistance.
|Hold the opposing team to zero points in the final two minutes of a non-simulated game.|
To get this trophy, you need to prevent the opposing team from scoring any points in the final 2 minutes of the 4th quarter. This cannot be done in overtime. Again, you can alter the game sliders to ensure a terrible offensive effort from the opposing team, or use a second controller and purposely miss your shots.
|The Here and Now|
|Start an Association using today's date.||(1)|
Create a new offline Association. DO NOT pick "Beginning of Season," and instead select "Start with Today's Date." Your new Association will begin on today's date, and the trophy unlocks after creation of the Association.
|Adjust your "Total Sim Control" strategy in The Association or Season mode.|
You can now set up how your team plays when you simulate games. From the main menu in your offline Association go to Coaching > Gameplan > Total Sim Control. Here you will set up your scoring options and defensive strategies. When finished hit to save/exit out and the trophy unlocks.
|Not Your Father's Association|
|Join an Online Association.||(1)|
This is a very quick trophy. In the menu, simply go Game Modes > The Association: Online, and create a new association. You can then select how many games you want to have your season, how long each quarter is, the difficulty, password, etc. Once you finish creating this association, the trophy will pop.
|Another Day, Another Win|
|Win 5 NBA Today matchups.||(14)|
This trophy is now unobtainable.
You will need to play 5 NBA Today Matchups, which are matchups that are occurring on the day you’re playing it. Simply play 5 different games (1 minute quarters are acceptable) and win, the trophy will pop. Sliders may be used to help you win your games.
|Don't Hate the Player|
|Win the championship in an Online Association.||(3)|
The fastest way to get this trophy is to set quarters to 1 minute, set the season to 14 games with playoff series at 1 game, and set the speed of the league to maximum. When you create a private online association it takes 6 hours for the league to begin. Once the league begins, go to Commissioner Options from the main menu. Here you can go to Admin Options and manually pick your team win all 14 games. Then head back to Commissioner Options and advance the league one week at a time (you cannot advance any faster) till the beginning of the playoffs. Play your first playoff game and win. You can also edit sliders to your favor to make it easier from the main online association menu. After you play your first playoff game and win, head back to commissioners options and advance the league to the next round. Repeat process till you're the champions. If you lose a game at any stage you can go into the Commissioner Options and "Reset" the game you lost so you can play/sim it again until you win. (Thanks for the tip, tdog3!)
|Win 5 non-simulated games in a row in The Association mode.||(1)|
Simply win 5 games in a row in The Association without simulating. Choose a strong team, or a team you’re comfortable with for best results. To make this trophy even quicker and easier you can set 1 minute quarters and adjust sliders.
|Win an NBA Championship in The Association mode.|
Again, pick a strong team or a team you’re comfortable with. Set your association settings to a 14 game season with 1 minute quarters and set each playoff series to 1 game. Play or simulate the season until you reach the playoffs (if you simulate through the season and do not qualify for the playoffs you can simply start a new season). Then play through every playoff game and win. Once you beat the final team you’ll get this trophy.
|Win the MVP award in NBA: Creating a Legend mode.||(2)|
To earn this trophy, you need to be named the MVP in Creating a Legend mode. The easiest way to do this is to choose a player like Lebron James and alter his stats so he has a 99 in every attribute. Then all you have to do is play key games until the MVP is announced. With your character at 99 for every stat, and with good play during the key games, you should have this trophy easily.
|Hey Mr. DJ|
|Create a 2K Beats Playlist.|
To access the playlist, from the main menu go to: Features > 2K Beats > 2K Beats by Jay Z. Press on any song to remove it from the playlist. Exit this menu, and the trophy will pop.
|Create a shoe in the 2K Shoe Creator.|
To create a shoe, from the main menu go to: Features > 2K Shoes > 2K Shoe Creator. Create a shoe, then press and choose to save your shoe. Once you’ve named and saved it the trophy will pop.
|Make at least 9 three-pointers in one non-simulated game with Brandon Jennings to set a new career-high.||(5)|
This can be done in conjunction with It’s Raining. Brandon Jennings (#3) plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. Select them and score 9 or more three-pointers from beyond the arc with Brandon Jennings. If you’re not sure which player is Jennings, his name will appear below the player when he has the ball. You can change sliders so that your 3PT success is 100 to make this trophy easier.
|Score at least 52 points in one game with Kevin Durant to set a new career-high.||(3)|
Kevin Durant (#35) plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Select them and score 52 or more points with Kevin Durant to get the trophy. If you alter the game sliders to make Durant even more beastly than he already is, you can probably get this before half-time.
|From the Ground Up|
|Purchase 15 Boosters in MyTEAM mode.|
Boosters, purchased with VC in MyTeam mode, contain “items” for use in this mode. From the MyTeam main menu select Market > Boosters. The cheapest way to get this trophy is to purchase 15 Bronze boosters, which cost 500 VC each. This means you will have to spend at least 7500 VC to get this trophy.
|To Good Use|
|Play a MyTEAM game online.|
From the MyTeam main menu select the third option, Road to the Playoffs. This is an online game between you and another person’s MyTeam. Once you complete the game, win or lose, this trophy will pop.

|The Future is Now|
|Win the Rising Stars Challenge.||(3)|
The Rising Stars Challenge is a game featuring prominent rookie and sophomore players from the NBA. To get this trophy easily, modify your roster so players on the opposing team are rated low or your own team is rated high. You can also change sliders in-game to make it even easier. Simply win the game to get this trophy.
|All The Sprite® Moves|
|Win the Sprite® Slam Dunk Contest with at least one AI opponent.||(2)|
The aim of the Slam Dunk Contest is to get the highest score overall from three dunks. If you miss a dunk your score will be lowered, but will still count. You cannot retry a dunk if you mess up. You perform dunks by pressing buttons as they pass over a point on the screen, similar to games like Guitar Hero. There are three levels of difficulty. Harder dunks will require more complex button combinations but you will get a higher score. I recommend to try hard-level dunks, as even if you don't successfully complete the dunk, you will still get points due to the high difficulty level. If you have the highest total score after three rounds, you will earn this trophy.
|Home, Home on Long Range|
|Win the Three-Point Contest with at least one AI opponent.||(1)|
The Three-Point Contest is split up into two rounds. In the first round you must have one of the top three scores to progress to the second round, and in this next round the person with the highest score wins the contest. In the contest, there are five racks around the Three-Point line with five balls on each. The orange balls are worth one point, and the final "money ball" is worth two points. To start a shot, you first have to press to pick up the ball. Then hold to perform your shot, releasing it at the ideal spot. This ideal release point is also represented at the top of the screen while you are shooting. Once you finish a rack, press to run to the next rack and start the process again. Once you score the most points in the second round you will win this contest, and get the trophy.
|Starry, Starry Night|
|Win the All-Star Game.||(1)|
The All-Star Game is a game featuring the best players in the NBA. To get this trophy easily, modify your roster so players on the opposing team are rated low or your own team is rated high. You can also change sliders in-game to make it even easier. Simply win the game to get this trophy.
