1. Purpose

Following regular- and post-season games in NBA 2K11's My Player mode, your 
player is asked a question by a member of the in-game press, to which he can 
respond with one of four qualities: Professionalism, Arrogance, Loyalty, or 
Indifference. Your choice of response can affect three personal ratings 
attached your player: Teammate Chemistry, Leage-Wide Popularity, and Local Fan 
Support. These ratings in turn change the way the play of the game for your 
player. For example, a player with low Teammate Chemistry will find the ball 
passed to him less often.

The purpose of this FAQ is to provide a list of the questions that can be 
posed to your player and the personal ratings changes that ensue from 
answering with each quality. This will allow NBA 2K11 players to optimize 
their created ballers' personal ratings.

2. How to Read

In the succeding "Questions" section is a list of questions, sorted 
alphabetically - note that leading articles are not dropped for the purpose of 
sorting. On the next line after each question is a tab-delineated list with 
entries "P:", "A:", "L:", and "I:" respectively for the answer with the 
qualities Professionalism, Arrogance, Loyalty, and Indifference. Following the 
colon for each answer quality is a list of three symbols from the set "+", 
"=", "-", and "?". The first slot records how answering with the given 
question with the given quality changes the Teammate Chemistry, the second the 
League-Wide Popularity, and the third the Local Fan Support. A "+" indicates 
an increase; an "=", no change; a "-", a decrease; and a "?", that the result 
is unknown.

For example, consider the following (fictitious) entry:
My sources in the league office indicate that a management change may be in 
the works. How do you feel about your coach? 
P:=-+	A:-+-	L:+=+	I:+==

This indicates that, if the in-game reporter asks your player the question "My 
sources in the league office indicate that a management change may be in the 
works. How do you feel about your coach?", and you answer with 
Professionalism, Teammate Chemistry will remain unchanged, Leage-Wide 
Popularity will decrease, and Local Fan Support will increase, etc.

One additional caveat may prove of use. The text in this FAQ is (as close as 
possible) the _written text_ of the asked questions. Rarely, the audio of the 
question differs slightly from the written text, so make sure you compare the 
written text of the asked question to the question in this FAQ.

3. The Questions

4. How to Contribute/Correct

If you want to contribute to or to correct this FAQ, please contact me at me 
at You can send contributions in the form of questions 
and answer results in the above format.

To aid your efforts, I'll share a trick that will allow you to find the 
answers many questions quickly. First, unless you've already done so, turn 
Autosave off (in My Player mode, load the options menu, then go to 
"NBA>Options>Game Mode Options" and set "Autosave" to "Off.") Play a game 
through as normal until late in the 4th quarter. Save the game and exit 
("Pause Menu>Quit>Save Game and Exit" - make sure you choose a file to which 
to save your game after you exit, as the NBA 2K11 will no longer autosave the 
game to the My Player file you're using!) Now, go again to My Player and 
re-load the game. Play through to the end and answer the press conference 
question as usual, noting the question and results from your answer choice. 
Then, repeat the last two steps - quit My Player, re-load the game, play to 
the end and answer the question again (with a different answer this time if 
it's the same question - questions are determined by significant game results, 
so the question almost always will be the same.) In this way, you can fairly 
quickly discover the results from all four answers.
