This has definitely been a fun experiment as it has taken our analytical, strategical and administrative abilities to the edge in order to fulfil the premise of our exercise which states that you can build an amazing out of the pure grind.
Of course, this will take time and patience from you but it is definitely worth it when you don’t want to spend real money to fix your starting five, which is also a valid way to build a super team.
Nonetheless, we want to show you how to invest your MT after countless hours of “mining” it in order to get ahold of the best NBA stars and legends available in NBA 2K22 MyTeam.
NBA 2K22 - Best lineup under 150,000 MT coins in MyTeam
The last time that we will repeat this part, we promise, but we do have to set some ground rules because we will be trying to build this team in a way that anyone who has a copy of the game can replicate.
That of course means that the only way to keep a levelled scenario will be to keep everything on the auction house instead of other methods to acquire player items like token rewards or season agenda’s prizes.
With that in mind, we will only concentrate on Base Set, Colossal, Primetime and Flash players for this exercise just like the last two.
Ray Allen will snipe your way towards a victory in MyTeam
On our last exercise, we did not want to change the formula as the way MyTeam is played you can't only rely on a certain type of offence and defence so you need specialists everywhere on your lineup.
Amethyst Base Set 90 OVR PG Tim Hardaway - 14,000 MT coins
The father of the current Mavs’ star is going to give us the same print that we wanted with Isaiah Thomas on the last exercise only with an improved success rate as Hardaway is fast and smart with the ball in his hands but can score on all three levels.
Amethyst Colossal 90 OVR SG Ray Allen - 40,000 MT coins
The ultimate sniper has arrived at our team as the most dominant long-distance shooter before the Curry revolution will give us that wide defence that has to respect Allen behind the arc, which weakens the paint defence.
Amethyst Colossal 90 OVR SF Julius Erving - 22,500 MT coins
Another NBA legend joins us as Dr J will give us a combination of size and skill that will break defences schemes as he can dribble, drive, pass and shoot from anywhere on the court.
Amethyst Base Set 90 OVR PF Kevin Love - 18,000 MT coins
Kevin Love is one of the most deceiving players in the NBA and we meant that in a positive way for us as he is more acknowledged for being one of the best frontcourt deep shooters but he has an insane radar to crash the boards which will definitely help us.
Ruby Base Set 88 OVR C Nikola Vucevic - 8,000 MT coins
Yes, we are aware that the ideal player at this position may be Shaquille O’Neal from the Colossal program, but you probably will have to spend the whole budget just to get him. Vucevic may be a step down in physical dominance but we gain two more levels in scoring as he has a killer mid-range and a great three.
STARTING LINEUP TOTAL SPENT - 102,500 MT coins
Richard “Rip” Hamilton will slice defences apart while the starters take a breath
Ruby Base Set 88 OVR PG Isaiah Thomas - 9,200 MT coins
Amethyst Base Set 90 OVR SG Richard Hamilton - 12,000 MT coins
Amethyst Base Set 90 OVR SF Sean Elliot - 10,500 MT coins
Amethyst Base Set 90 OVR PF Zach Randolph - 11,000 MT coins
Sapphire Primetime 85 OVR C Marvin Bagley III - 4,750 MT coins
For the bench, we have a team that can be starting if we get picky as Thomas, Elliot and Bagley III repeat in from the previous team and the latter has been a part of every roster in this experiment which makes him a great investment.
The new guys will be Richard Hamilton that can bring that old school swagger to our offence and defence and Zach Randolph who will be that tempo owner that can physically wear the defence off.
BENCH TOTAL SPENT - 47,450 MT coins
GRAND TOTAL - 149,950 MT coins
We genuinely believe that this team can take on any squad of the game, albeit there is more content and items waiting to arrive at the game.
You will be able to combine power, speed and scoring skills from anywhere on the field it is just a matter for you to sharpen your skills to go along with this “Ferrari” of a lineup.
We will keep studying and analyzing the upcoming programs and items to maybe revisit these exercises further along the year as we expect better tiers to be released later.
In the meantime, make sure to give a look at our dedicated section as we will bring you everything you need to know about every NBA 2K release, news, MyTeam tips and more.
