    NBA 2k20

    I just had the greatest game of MyCareer, ever.

    I got drafted as a 6'10", 270 lbs centre by the Lakers.

    Ten games into the season, we are 9 and 1.

    LeBron James has been immense - 31 ppg, 7 assists per game, 4 blocks per game, 8 rebounds per game, and is leading the way for the MVP (one would think).

    My player is averaging 8 minutes a game, 13.8 ppg, 4 rebounds per game, 2 blocks per game, and 5 assists per game.

    LeBron gets injured, and the 5 and 6 Hawks come to Staples Centre to play us.

    Most of the game, we are trailing by 11 points.

    Coach puts me in the game with 2 minutes left in the first quarter, and the Lakers trailing 46-35.

    I play all the way until half-time, and at half-time, the Hawks lead 72-68. I have worked my arse off on both sides of the ball to cut the deficit.

    Straight after half-time, coach benches me. I come back to the court with minute left in the third quarter, the Lakers trailing 89-76.

    I go on a tear - getting every rebound, finding every open teammate, and racking up points; I drive to the rim aggressively, dunk, draw a foul, and from the Hawks' inbound play, steal the ball from Trae Young, and dunk it again, drawing another foul, and fouling Trae Young put.

    Hawks now lead 94-90, with only 90 seconds left.

    I steal the ball on halfway, race away, and dunk. Down by two, with a minute left.

    We tighten our defence, and force a wild shot from just inside our own half - I get the rebound, throw it to Anthony Davis, race up court, and Davis lobs me an alley oop. The game is tied 94-all with 5 seconds to go.

    The Hawks inbound it all the way down court, to their centre, who goes for the game-winning dunk - only for me to swat the ball away.

    We go to over-time.

    Coach benches me for the first minute of O/T.

    When I come on, our defence tightens up, and we win 110-107, with my player racking up 42 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, and 6 blocks...

    I am stoked - I worked so hard, and felt so rewarded!

    Wow that's pretty sick man, well done.

    I haven't played NBA for a few years but last time I did I made a big centre also and was drafted around #15 by the Bucks. I remember every once in a while having big games like this and it sure feels rewarding, especially when you then have a few of those games where you just can't grab a single rebound no matter how hard you try!

    I did try NBA 2k20 but the initial story was a bit long and laboured for me so I only just made it to the draft before I started playing something else. Might have to give it another go

    Thanks, mate! It was an epic game!

    I agree - the initial story is a bit of a drag, but it's kind of rewarding, when you get the starting gig.

    Subnautica. Brilliant game that makes me want to take a scuba diving course.
