Select the "Roster" option, then "Edit Player". If your
"Create A Player" list has no entries a Super Star player
will appear . Press R2 at the edit player screen to
increase his stats. Press L2 to return to the
"Create A Player" list, then press Start to change

More salary cap room:
Before starting a new franchise, go to "Roster Mangement".
Release your highest paid players to the Free Agent Pool.
For example, if you are the Knicks, release Spreewell,
Houston, etc.. This also works for any team in the game,
so you could release Jordan from Washington, Shaq from the
Lakers, etc. and build a super team for the league minimum.
Start a new franchise, and go to the "Roster Management"
screen. Select "Sign Free Agents" and you can now sign your
high priced players back to your team for the league minimum.
Easy three pointers:
Come up to the arc line (three point line), pump fake three
times, then shoot your jump shot. This technique increases
the accuracy of your three pointers and it will more than
likely go in. This trick does not work all of the time and
will obviously work better if the man you are using is a
decent three point shooter.
Fake spin move:
Press Triangle, then in the middle of the spin, press
Circle to shoot the ball. This looks the best with Jordan,
Carter and Kobe.
