This is a viral achievement which is deceptively hard to get due to the fact that, if you are playing someone who has it in a ranked exhibition game, and you are beating them, they can quit and you will not receive the achievement (nor any achievements related to online wins).

This situation is utterly ridiculous to be honest. I had so many people quit when I was beating them I got sick of it. So, my solution was this:

I found someone with the achievement and waited until the 2k9 servers were quiet. This was about midnight Pacific time in the US, or about 6pm in Melbourne Australia.

We both went into the 2k9 live lobby, and at the same time clicked on "ranked exhibition match" - and we were matched up first go! Unbelieveable.

I have heard that you might not get matched up right away, but if you keep looking - going into the lobby, entering a game, then withdrawing before the tip off if it isn't your boosting partner you are set to play - you should be matched up in the first 3 tries when the server is quiet.

The number of quitters and bad sports who play this game online is ridiculous. It ruins the online experience for everyone.
