    The Zone
    Don't let me get in my zone

    Association Description
    The Zone is an Online Association in NBA 2K where league members look to achieve the most sim basketball experience possible. The Zone will give all member types (premier and non) the opportunity to play the best simulation sports title to date in an online career mode experience. Fun is our number one goal here in The Zone. We always recommend mic’ing up with your opponent to enhance the enjoyment of playing hoop with friends. If walking away every season with the Larry O’Brien Trophy every season with your superstar averaging 50 points a game, this league may not be for you.

    Association Setup
    The Zone will maintain to have at least 1/3 of the NBA squads usered at all time. The season length will be 58 games played on the games Slow pace. For those first timers in Online Association, the season starts on November 1st and we are placed on a timer. The timer length is 8 hours before it advances to the next day. Games scheduled on that day will be simulated if not already played. At any point we can advance the Association in a one week chunk. Games will be set up with Pro difficult and Simulation sliders. The quarter length of the games will be 10 minutes.

    Gameplay
    TSO has a golden rule. Don’t be a douche. In basketball this applies to a couple different gameplay aspects. 1. On ball defense. It is NOT required to play on ball defense, but anyone caught camping in the paint or in passing lanes you will be given a warning and if no improvement in your gameplay is made, you will be removed. 2. Isolation. Iso play is a big part of the NBA. However, spending 18 to all 24 seconds trying to dribble around defenders and never passing is extremely cheesy and unrealistic. LEARN YOUR PLAYBOOK and run those plays. If over iso'ing occurs you will be given a warning and if no improvement is made you will be removed. 3. Zone Defense. Zone defense is played out in Europe and with the amatuers (High School and College). You can use it to change up the pace of the game like NBA teams actually do, but it should NEVER be your base defense.

    Free Agents/Trades
    Free Agents are first come first serve. 2K does a great job of making it difficult to sign FA’s. Players do not sign any first offer you give them. Some of very steep price tags.

    Trades will be judged by a trade committee. DO NOT propose the trade in game without Committee approval. When trading with the CPU the CPU must benefit in some way. Something as simple as “cap flexibility” will not be enough to approve the deal. Also remember that just because the Committee approves a trade, does NOT mean the CPU will accept it. One thing to always think about when sending a trade to the CPU, "would a user accept this deal?"

    Read and love it. So its ok if we have to let a few games get simmed? Also this is my first OA so if i see a game against a user but its 5 days ahead can we play it? Or do we have to play it in that tight window?

    You csn only play the games in that Window. It wont even let u play games out of that window. You dont have to play games in order.. So you can skip a game on the second and go to one on the 5th. Whatever games you dont play before the advance will be simmed though.

    Play any available game. Don't matter the order. Also be proactive about scheduling user games. The window is 20 days long so if the game is on the 5th and you have a user game on the 26th, go ahead and start scheduling it so you know you can get it in on time.

    20 2K days. Which equals less than a week in real time. It will vary throughout the season how many games that is
