First, must pick your season settings. Then pick your teams that you want to play the games with. After you have done this, you can manage your team(s) in the main franchise menu. You can trade players, waive them, or sign them. Also, you can manage your personell. Like you can sign new coaches, assistants,trainers, and rookie draft scouts. Also, my future coaches, you can adjust your lineup, you can start different people at another position than their current starting position. For example: I don't like playing Kevin Garnett at PF so i switch him to SF and switch his starting position with Spree. Another thing that you can do in your franchise is to scout rookies of any position and get a couple in the rookie draft. There will be two rounds of the rookie drafting which will take like 7 minutes or less. Then your players will go through the resigning period and will train either normally or the way you specify their training camp. This is your franchise. 2.B.SEASON In a season, you can do all the things you can in a franchise except for the whole signing player thing. 2.C. PLAYOFFS In a playoffs, you pick your settings, pick your teams, and play a tournament of games. 3.TOURNAMENT Same as playoffs, 4.PRACTICE 4.A.STANDARD Practice releasing the ball with excellent timing with 2 seperate teams. You may think that the home team is the only one that can control the ball, but you have to get a jumping reboud while on defense for the other team to get the ball. 4.B.FREE THROW Practice shooting your free throws. Remember to get the analog icons in the middle of the circle to light up,then stop the little ball directly in the middle. 5.ONLINE Play against other ESPN NBA Basketball owners around the country!
