    skill caps

    is there any position or play style that lets you get 99speed,vertical,quickness,stamina, etc.? you would think the athletic play style people would be able 2 but u cant, 3pt specialist can get there 3pt to 99 right? what do athletic play style players get increased for them? very agravting that players can have over 92 speed quickness vert etc. but not mine.

    also why is it that sg's cannot have ankle breaker lvl 3? when so many sg's in the league are known for cracking peoples ankles....

    Might be that you have seen players with the adidas items equipped that boost stats beyond the cap, e.g. my vert cap is 92 and maxed, I add a adidas comp sleeve to both calves and now I'm a 96 vert. I do feel though that if there are real life past and present NBA players that 2K decide to give a 99 in a stat to, then if our MyPlayer is based on a blueprint of that real player, then we should also be able to achieve a 99. Surely a 3pt expert would make 99 for Mid and 3pt, and Athletics should be able to fill out the physical stats. All-Rounder should be the most effective base start, but take longer (maybe more VC) to reach the caps than the rest. Having a 92 ovrl Athletic guy, Hall Of Fame is still too easy. 90 for Mid, 85(plus 2 sleeves 89) for 3pt, 90 dunk, 80 shot in traffic, 96 vert, 70 strength, 6'6" SG, too easy to dive and score with Finisher and Sprite Posterizer, or pull up for J's anywhere... Athletic shouldn't be able to reach that level of shooting as they should be slashers. Shooters shouldn't be able to dunk like athletics, All-Rounders should be very good at everything but not to the same level as specialists. If you go to create a custom roster and edit most players, their base is always All-Rounder, but they have levels higher than what can be achieved in MyPlayer.

    @aussie my thoughts exactly how can other players who arnt all stars can have insane vertical speed etc. but our future of the nba stars cant? if gerald green can have a 50 inch vert and hes rated like 74 why cant my 90+ rated star athletic based have it? centers vertical is maxed at 70 i think it is? but javalee mcgee can basically touch the top of the backboard.. same for dwight howard, deandre jordan

    The vert isn't that big of a deal because the height of a center/pf is usually a few inches taller than your average SG/SF. That means with his longer arms and being taller, he can still get up higher than the other guys. I do agree that the rest of the stats should let you get as high as you want. I'm not sure why they had a cap on anything this year. Last year you could take a center and make him drop 3's all day if you wanted to. You can still make them good at 3's, but can't max it.

    How is mcgee vert 93. I got a 7'2 Athletic C so I would assume I would be able to at least copycat mcgee but my max vert cap is 75.
    Also my guy never dunks the ball?
    Hes 7'2
    75vert (max)
    90 stand dunk (max)
    80 dunk (not maxed)
    posterizer sig

    but he will NEVER dunk the ball lmfao?

    I couldn't dunk at first. I forgot to turn on all of my dunking characteristics (there are 15 of then). I began dunking once I did that.
