    At a glance this _feels_ underwhelming but a chance to catch our collective breath before hitting xmas week is probably a good thing.*

    Yeah I think the power creep with Moments of the Week 6 (PD Harden, AD, Giannis, Siakam) did not hurt Week 7's Moments too bad, but does hurt this version's.
    Having one of the top three cards be a double dip from last week isn't great, either. Jackson Jr. is versatile but maybe more exciting as a budget amy than as a diamond. It's a real third-banana lineup lacking in star power. Obviously some big names at center here but not for me.

    Yeah, I mean JJJ is a really good card last week so I don't necessarily hate it, but I don't know if the improved badges are enough of an upgrade at first glance, but still need to try him out.
    KAT is generally a 2K monster as well.
    Chase, I know you're working on the reviews for Week 8. Question for you when you have a chance:  When you're working the auction house do you ever make a mistake? Either on a new card that you think you've snagged a good deal on only to watch the prices drop immediately (this happened to me with Draymond), or a scenario like the locker code guaranteeing a certain auctionable player you've maybe been holding onto (Pierce and Duncan earlier this year), or a new version of a card that sends the previous one spiraling in value (Kobe, MJ, JJJ)? Do you try to sell it right away to recoup what you can (and what do you do if it's really bottoming out?); do you try to stash it for a couple of weeks to see where it stabilizes, taking up real estate in your binder/AH; or something else? Sometimes I'll run up against an AH situation where I feel I'm banging my head against the wall. I try not to flip too many costly cards b/c they can be precarious, but sometimes the moment gets the better of me.

    Yes, I make mistakes all the time. It's hard to categorize how I do things in every scenario, but basically my mindset is if it's a card that goes in a set that people can lock, I will be more patient and hold the card and wait for it to get more rare. I can't control if 2K reintroduces cards back into the game etc. in packs, but that's the general mindset there.
    If it's for cards I realize won't be valuable in a set or will never be locked in overall (for example, I know if there are 4 diamonds for a set, that the amethyst is never going to be worth much because the 4 diamonds will be more rare) then I'm more willing to eat a loss and get out fast.
    However, my general viewpoint is I accept I'm going to lose sometimes on flips and such, but that's why I generally don't buy and sell top-end cards unless I have a great feeling about them (for example the Odom card I believe will go up in price). My losses stay smaller, and I can move more cards if I'm down in the 2-20K range rather than the 50-500K range for cards.
    Hope that helps, but feel free to ask follow ups.
    I love the Question and Answer (Q&A) !
    I picked up Myteam at the end of last year (have always been a mycareer guy .... so I was looking forward to it in 2k20, especially since that meant most of my competition wouldn't have a +5 month headstart... and with the introduction of evo cards, myteam is ALL I play now lolz
    So I enjoy reading your articles.... but the Q&A stuff ..much better👍
    I have a question regarding evolution cards:
    Do you actually fully evolve the cards? ( that would be a full time job, to complete them, in time to keep up, and write article so quickly 😳)
    If/ When evolving cards... what's your method? I.e. grind 1 card exclusively until its maxed?
    (My method: run a full line up of evo's, but the 1 that's the closest to the NEXT level up... is priority/option #1 .... always focus on player with closer progress. But of course I'm currently grindin alot of Ruby's and amethysts rn)
    Thanks for reply/input 👍

    Generally speaking, no I do not fully evolve most cards. I just figure out what the evolution requirements are and more or less decipher if it will end up being worth it based on the base card for the reviews. When I do evolve cards, if I really want to do a specific player to evolve him to sell him for a massive profit, it's Triple Threat Offline and Online. It's the most efficient way to do it most of the time, especially when you need games played components.
    I do full evolution lineups for 5-on-5 at times when I'm knocking out new challenges etc. but that's more when I'm just going at my own pace and evolving players for fun more than any end goal.
    I will probably never really evolve any of the major cards through like the 4-6 levels of evolution requirements to Pink Diamond and beyond status because I simply don't play with individual cards enough -- I get bored easily. So if I'm evolving players, it's usually ones where I see a clear profit margin taking them from like emerald to amethyst or things like that.
    I made a lot of MT early in the year doing Marbury, Armstrong, Ward, and a couple guys like that multiple times. I think I did one Sprewell to diamond for a major profit because I was one of the first to have that done as well. Once in a while, I do look for a random player who doesn't have a ton of full evolutions on the marketplace as well. I did an Antonio Davis and a Junior Bridgeman, and I really cleaned up on the Bridgeman because he had a steals requirement that many didn't want to deal with.
    There was also a delightful glitch earlier in the year where if a person sold his evolution card but it wasn't all the way evolved, you got those stats from him if you bought him. So I did weasel a couple cards here and there through guesswork and looking at the leftover contracts on a card to get head starts on a couple things. That was patched out though.

    I've been evolving a lot of the base Spotlight cards -- Garnett I did fully and I thought he was easy. I stalled out on Dirk and Drexler b/c neither is "one of my guys" and I expect a decent Dirk on the market at some point since he's lightly part of this retirement celebration. Drexler is a good card at his Ruby level, imo, which is where I've been stuck for a while. I powered through Dwight and almost have him at Diamond. I've got a logjam at center so I use him on my B team and am OK with the long game there. Iggy kinda sucks with his rebounding requirements but he's another longterm project for me and a card I'd love to see hit the PD level. Zeke plays above his ratings, imo, but I don't see his final form to be truly worth pursuing. Ive been loving the Chicago focus this year, though, with Anthony Davis and Dwayne Wade both being feature, so Isiah has a place in my Chicago lineup that is mostly a labor of love.
    This past weekend I finally Evo'd my Bruce Bowen. When I evolve a card I've been using for in a lot of lineups, like Marbury or Garnett or Bowen, it's a real feeling of accomplishment and it makes me feel even more attached to certain cards. Garnett doesn't really have a place in my lineups any more (except for my Chicago lineup!) but he's a foundational piece of my MyTeam story this year and he's a player-card I wouldn't have had access to in is prime previous years.
    I evo a lot of cards through regular play (and grinding play) in games. There's a long seven minute game on rookie in the Dwight spotlight path that I use sometimes for a nice unbroken patch of grinding. Solo triple threat with one player and two scrubs is also a painless, if mindless, exercise in 22 quick points. That's how I've getting Joakim to code. I sometimes run a lineup of all Evos, and I did it more earlier in the year, but as I came into bigger and bigger requirements it felt like spreading all that love around was slowing me down.
    I agree with something I think Chase said earlier in the year about Evo cards changing the way I play. I see a lot of pluses and minuses to them, but my favorite is when evolving them comes naturally and in the flow of play. Garnett was super fluid, and honestly so was Bowen up until the end. He's a splash monster on 3s -- his steal is just stupid low. Zeke, too, since he's a lot of assists and is a naturally good passer. Having to focus on points for him, though, is when my flow gets thrown off.
    I frakking hate the vault tho, lol.
