    No longer possible to unlock. Achievement discontinued. Don't even bother.

    **EDIT 22/01/2018 - After numerous player reports below, this achievement looks to now be Partly Discontinued/Unobtainable since 2018 kicked in**

    Here is how I just unlocked it. First time.

    - Get to final game
    - Rush in to an opposing player that has the ball and mash X to cause a foul and some stoppage time
    - Pause game and select quit (make sure the red bar at the top says spend 1 gold coin to sim to the end) - If not unpause and pause to make sure stoppage time is in force.
    - Confirm quit and coin spend.
    - 200g richer.

    EDIT - If you are in a cutscene and not in 'stoppage time' you will just get the option to QUIT to Main menu and no mention of sim. You'll probably see what I mean.

    You will reach the Bonus Match to play for Team USA after completing the College level games, and then dismissing the Pre-order option afterwards.

    Once inside this game, cause a stoppage in play by committing a foul or backcourt violation, and then pause the game in order to see a "Sim to End" option inside of the red bars at the top of the screen. Select this option to skip the game entirely and unlock this achievement more quickly.

    ZoZombifyI also don't understand why this has any negative votes.. It worked perfectly! Thank you.

    Guile132The negative votes are most likely from the ones who can't get this unobtainable achievement. Duh

    This is more of a way how to restart NBA 2k17 Prelude if the game froze on you
    (like it did for me) and it wont let you back in saying you finished it.

    So after quite a lot of tries and errors, I managed to get it restarted and I
    got all the achievements I thought were glitched out for me.

    So here it is, step by step:

    1. Go to your games and apps, on the NBA 2k17 Prelude and choose Manage game
    2. Go to your save data, choose it and Delete Everywhere (You might have to do this 2-3 times until it dissapears)
    3. On your X1 go to Settings - Network - Go Offline.
    4. Now start the NBA 2k17 Prelude. It should start by creating a new player, do that, click any message you get until you get to the tiles menu and nothing else.
    5. Double tap the guide button to get the X1 menu and choose Connect to Xbox Live (It will take you to the Network screen, choose Go Online there). Wait until it shows your NAT
    6. Go back to the game (It should have stayed on) and go straight to 2KU (Tutorial game)
    7. Let it start, jump for the ball, take a shot or let them take a shot.
    8. Pause it and go to Camera. Change anything there, and exit saving it. THIS IS IMPORTANT - There should be a ball in the lower right corner signaling that it saves to the servers.
    9. Then go to quit the tutorial.
    10. After that wait a second or two and the other tiles should be working.
    11. Enjoy replaying anything that glitched out on you.

    There you go. If you have any additional questions, let me know on PM.

    Igneus DarkSideI really dont have the game anymore, its been some while.
    But I do know that if you do it step by step as I wrote, it should work...
    Try reinstalling it?

    Swyer87Sorry for the late reply, yes I did all the steps.

    Read reports that it is definitely unobtainable but noticed someone unlocked it on 29th July?
