Is that napalm I smell or is that just bombs dropping out of the sky by my man Larry "Legend" Bird?

If you are having trouble beating the other team while scoring beyond the arc you may want to change the difficulty to rookie mode. To set the game to rookie mode 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. I chose the team of Isiah Thomas, Larry Bird, and Patrick Ewing.

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 Larry Legend and let him drop his bombs all night long!
