Look at those short shorts! Man that is old school!

If your old school team isn't cutting the mustard you may want to change the difficulty to Rookie. To set the game to Rookie first select the 3v3 Era Challenge. Once you are at the team select screen press the Y button and change the difficulty to Rookie. This should make it a little easier to accomplish this task.

This achievement can also easily be done with two controllers, but there is a trick to getting it setup. Make sure you have a second controller powered on. Once in the Legends Showcase menu select Pick-Up Game. Then select 1v1. Choose any two legends and press start. At the next screen it will say Team 1 underneath your gamertag. Using the second controller make sure you change it to where it says Team 2 underneath Player 2. Start this game and then once in the game quit back out to the Legends Showcase menu. Now you will have two controllers activated for the 3v3 Era Challenge.

Now at the Legends Showcase menu select the 3-on-3 Era Challenge. Choose one of the oldschool teams from the 1960's. I chose the team with Elgin Baylor, Bob Cousy, and Wilt Chamberlain.

Start up the game and you will now notice that your second controller will be controlling the other team. After you score a basket use the second controller to run the other team out of bounds so you can get the ball back. Take control of Elgin Baylor and show that high vertical jump shot! Show them people why they call you the "Rabbit"!

If you don't play this in one setting you will need to do the two controller method again before you continue where you left off.
