Rules

1.) Defense:

  • YOU MUST PLAY ON-BALL DEFENSE AT ALL TIMES, WHEN SOMEONE DRIVES PAST YOU, YOU ARE ALLOWED TO SWITCH TO THE NEXT MAN CLOSEST TO CONTINUE COVERAGE, PLAY DEFENSE OR BLOCK THE SHOT.
  • Zone Defense:
    • You many NOT run zones more than 25-40% of the game.
    • You should be controlling the defender closest to the ball most of the time.
    • THERE IS NO PAINT CAMPING ALLOWED!!! The only time you should control your center is when the opposing team has the ball around the basket.
  • You may not push the ballhandler into the back court when he’s bringing it past the half line. If this happens you must give the ball back.
  • You cannot lock on while the other team is bringing the ball up court until after the ball-handler has started moving up toward the 3pt line
  • Intentional Fouls:
    • If your opponent gets an offensive rebound, do not intentional foul the player in order to avoid the easy put back.
    • Do not intentional foul on fastbreaks to prevent guys from getting down court. More than TWO times per game would be considered overdoing it.
    • You can intentionally foul as much as you want at the end of the game if you need to force free throws as is realistic.
  • Inbound Passes:
    • Inbound Pass Stealing is NOT ALLOWED!!! UNLESS….
      • the person throws a long pass that goes past their three-point line in the backcourt,
      • during inbounds plays on the offensive side of the court and stealing those passes are realistic (as long as only controlling 1 defender not moving multiple people around),
      • its the end of the game (under 3 minutes, behind by 12 or more) and are trying to comeback.
  • Do NOT abuse Double Teams, Doubles are NOT used every possession of every game!!
  • Do NOT abuse the steal button, People don’t try to steal multiple times in one possession (ie Swipe Swipe Swipe), NOT everyone can steal!!, remember this phrase “YOU REACH, I TEACH” because bad steal attempts usually result in a blow by score!
  • NO REACHING AFTER DEFENSIVE REBOUNDS – No reaching for pass to pg after defensive rebounds. You must give the ball back even if the cpu did it. Get back on defense!!
  • FULL COURT PRESS SHOULD NOT BE USED EXCEPT AT THE END OF THE GAME IN ORDER TO TRY TO COMEBACK TO WIN

2.) Offense:

  • Fast Breaking:
    • The NBA average in FB points is about 12 per game. The top team averages around 20 per game. If you average much more than that per game, it’s not realistic.
    • If you need an exact answer of when it is OK to fast break:
      • After steals
      • After blocks
      • After long rebounds
      • Some normal missed baskets
      • If your opponent has nobody back because they are all crashing the boards, then by all means PUSH IT.
    • You need to walk the ball up court most of the time after made baskets and allow the defense to set up. Do not turbo up the court and pass to the wide open player on the wing or to the cutting big man. The only times you are allowed to push it after made baskets is when the clock is winding down at the end of any quarter or when you are trailing late in the fourth/overtime.
    • No Constant Full Court Passes, 2k Animates when you do a good or bad FULL COURT PASS use this as a reference
  • Play Calling:
    • this is more of a guideline than a rule, you should consider trying to run a play every 3 possessions on average . If you don’t like manually calling plays…. set it up in the settings where the CPU will call them for you. You can also elect to have the play diagram shown on the floor.
    • Do NOT ABUSE the same play over and over, mix it up.
    • Do NOT ABUSE ISO all game, ISO all game is not a form of offense
  • NO RUNNING AROUND IN CIRCLES TRYING TO LOSE DEFENDERS, Running around in circles, trying to lose the defender is not an offense.
  • Three Pointers:
    • Keep in Mind, New York and Orlando shot the most threes a game last NBA season at 26-27 attempts.
      • DO NOT AVERAGE more than 30 three point attempts PER GAME (this number is actually high but giving people opportunities). This means a few games above are okay.
      • If your shooters are being left open(IE: a zone), you are allowed to take as many as you want in that game.
  • Points In The Paint:
    • This is more of a guideline than rule, just to give you something to play by (if becomes a problem we will make this a heavy enforced rule) This rule is: 50% of points in the paint MAX. To get this total you subtract fast break and second chance points from your total PIP displayed for your final total. This is hard to break so don’t try.
    • Teams in NBA DO NOT AVERAGE more than 50% PIP, most much less!!
  • SHOT ATTEMPTS We do NOT want to see players having more than 35 shots in a game, this is extremely unrealistic and continuous abuse will cause you to have players suspended or expulsion from the league.

3.) Miscellaneous:

  • You are allowed three pauses per game (excluding substitutions/match-up changes).
  • More than THREE pauses for anything other than listed above will receive a strike after the game.
  • Do not pause to show your opponent replays unless they have given the okay. Use a mic if you don’t want this to start a fight.
  • Substitutions/Rotations:
    • USE YOUR BENCH, ESTABLISH A ROTATION (don’t have to use that feature can do manually), You should be playing at least 3 bench players (8 man rotation) which is the minimum you will see for an NBA team
    • NO PLAYER should play all minutes of a game, this is not realistic (even if on the game person has a 99 stamina, 99 durability), players need rest, GATORADE CUPS mean you been playing them too long (players play suffers for it), DON’T JUST SUB YOUR BENCH in the last seconds of the game just to follow this rule
  • We use 82games.com as a reference. If a player has played the position in real life RECENTLY, you can put him there WITHIN REASON. ASK if you’re not sure.
  • More than 3% of a team’s minutes must be played at a position for it to be allowed (according to 82games.com).
  • IF SOMEONE IS ON YOUR SCHEDULE, MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO CONTACT THEM AND PLAY THEM, PEOPLE HAVE LIVES SO CONTACT MAY NOT HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY OR ON A TIME FRAME YOU LIKE BUT PEOPLE SHOULD RESPOND IN A TIMELY MANNER!!
  • YOU MUST PLAY AN OPPONENT ON YOUR SCHEDULE, THINGS HAPPEN AND SOMETIMES YOU MAY NOT ALWAYS HOOK UP TO PLAY, BUT THERE WILL BE NO PICKING & CHOOSING OF WHO YOU WILL OR WONT PLAY

4.) Sportsmanship:

  • Try to refrain from running up the score on your opponent. If you have a big 4th quarter lead and the game is under control, use your bench (LOWEST RATED PLAYERS), do not take more threes or push the tempo, and run clock.
  • By no means does this mean you have to stop scoring, just slow the tempo and know what not to do to show up your opponent. Not abiding by this rule will result in possible strikes being added for being a dick to your opponent.
  • If you are losing big, don’t quit playing the game and start pouting. We all will get smoked at one time or another but it’s important that everyone play hard until the final buzzer…..feeling frustrated when losing is normal, but when you give up and quit playing hard, you look bad and so does the entire league….. Same strikes rule applies here as above.
  • Talking smack is one thing, flaming or using defamatory comments is another. This league will NOT tolerate flaming of any kind. Any problems or issues with an opponent should be brought to the attention of a staff member first to be resolved. If you are reported for flaming another league member during a game, through e-mail, party chat, text message , private message or via the forums, the following will occur:
    • First Incident: Warning
    • Second Incident: Strike added
    • Third Incident: Expulsion from league

This league is meant to provide a forum where individuals can enjoy playing SIMULATION video game-basketball against “live” opponents — not to verbally attack them. Talking smack is a different issue and is not against any codes of conduct for this league, just be careful not to take it too far.

      • who are you even? Nobody cares bout your opinion cuz your not in the league & if you are you cant even man up to who you are!! Besides I dont win at 2k basketball haha!! So the rules dont help me win.

  1. After re reading some of these rules I would say that some of them are just plain dumb….the 50 paint rule is dumb. What if your guys are not hitting jumpers that game? What if the paint is wide open because of horrible defense…..also… What if a team wants to run…these rules make you play slow ALL THE TIME. I understand that you guys want these thing to be like the NBA but the fact is its not the NBA its a damn video game..lol. In the real game guys dont hit every free throw…in 2k if you know the release its goin in…..I know its guys that agree with me but they signed them to play. ….The on ball defense rule is laughable because most dont play it all game long and then when people use picks/screens you just get loss in the schuffle….To be honest…If people complain about my gameplay then I will leave the lg or yall can replace me but I cant play worried about this rule book….

    I just played a game where I took bad jumpshots all game long because I cant go to the paint because i was over 50 percent…Didnt drive because I didnt want someone to say Bo drive baseline all day with CP3…lol…the game sucked….Yeah thank Jes for completely ruining the 2k LG for me..lol

    This is no way to talk bad about tsg..this is just my personal opinion on these rules

    • The problem is I don’t think u know what on ball d is or how to play it – if u had a better understanding bout it or how 2 play it (2k put in multiple ways to play it) you would b better at it – there are times u can switch ie wen ur beat or if u choose to switch on screens/picks. Also if u go look at NBA stats u would see teams on avg have less than 50% points in paint – plus PIP isn’t just paint scores cuz FT and others contribute to that #. We have pretty much played by these rules always so most of the lifers don’t have to think bout rules. The only real complaint against ur gm is u don’t play on ball d. But it takes some learning to do and I understand the struggle in begining is frustrating I myself used to hate it but now realize the benefits. You don’t have to play slow we have to discuss these things cuz some things can b taken wrong way easily. The problem is running wen the run isn’t there or totally unrealistic. We will talk off to work.

      • LOL….At who ever thinks I dont play on ball D. Maybe they didnt see me playing WAY off so the pg dont blow right past me. I play onball D just as much as anyone in the lg…lol.. Do I wait until the ball stops to switch to the closest defender?…yes I do. Do I switch when I get beat? yeah….When moving through screens and shit do I switch to the guy that suppose to pick up the ball handler after the pick?… yes… But I play On ball D just as much as anyone else.

        Do i understand how the rule helps the LG or gameplay?…no I dont… I honestly think its a rule that many commishes cant explain the point of it being in the LG.

        Maybe it was made because CPU defense is too hard to get by ? Its so hard that you would actually have to play team basketball to score. You know run some plays and move the basketball around (isnt this what you are looking for). Only player like Carmelo, Kobe and Lebron can constantly get pass it…YOU KNOW LIKE THE REAL NBA.

        Again it no explaining the 50/50 paint rule to me….In my last game I score 32 out of 58 points in the paint. I broke the rule AGAIN and I got killed by 20 points (could have been 40 if he didnt mail it in in the 4th) Im not sayin I had a chance to beat Phin because his record speaks for itself but I had to keep taking bad jumpshots because I was over my in the paint limit. I took jump shot after jump shot tryin to play by the rules. Now you can say I didnt have to do it but in reality I do because its a rule that doesnt have a exception beside it.

        (I do understand its a guideline but I dont want to cheese noone into a L)

        Like I stated I dont like them but this is the way of the LG so I got 2 choices I either deal with it or I bounce. Im not asking for change, im just stating that I dont see the reasoning behind a few of these rules

  2. I solely swear that I read these rules and an even more confused than before. Other than that…. Im the Pistons and we suck.. BUT! Im going to be playoff!!

    As soon as Monkey give me Dwight!

    Oh and I agree too
