1.0 - Added the Achievement Guide
1.1 - Added a list of websites this guide can be posted in and added an 
achievement I forgot previously

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
NBA 2K8 is a very fun basketball sim, but some of those achievements may
be challenging. This guide is written so you get these achievements fast
and with minimal effort, however, if you don't like the techniques listed
here you may complete the achievements on your own, it isn't terribly 
difficult.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------
30 Assists             20 Points
-------------------------------------
Straightforward. Complete 30 assists with a team, doesn't have to be one
player. I recommend to simply set all of your game sliders in the options
menu under My NBA to 100 and the CPU to 0. This way the achievements are
easy to accomplish.

-------------------------------------
15 Blocks              20 Points
-------------------------------------
This is a very annoying achievement. My best advice is to make a quarter 12
minutes long. This way you have plenty of time to get 15 blocks. If you are
still struggling try this. When the point guard for the CPU is getting close
to the 3 point line start hitting Y and trying to block with every player
thats close to the point guard. This should leave the floor open and the CPU
will more likely than not try to get to the hoop for a layup. That's when 
you switch to your Power Forward or Center and block the shot when the Point
Guard is trying to get the layup. Don't have to finish the game to unlock
this achievement.

-------------------------------------
15 Steals              20 Points
-------------------------------------
Easiest way to do this is set fouls to 0 and Stealing to 100 (for the user
team of course) in the Game Sliders section.

-------------------------------------
Rebound Margin +7      20 Points
-------------------------------------
All you need to do is get 7 more rebound than the opposing team. Must finish
the match in order for the achievement to count. Put the opponents shooting
at 0 in the game sliders section and you will have tons of rebounds to get

-------------------------------------
15 Threes              15 Points
-------------------------------------
Make 15 three-point field goals in a single game. Don't have to finish the 
game for this achievement to count but I recommend you do this with the 
3-for-all achievement and finish the game. More on 3-for-all later

-------------------------------------
Defensive FG%          15 Points
-------------------------------------
You have to hold the opposing teams FG percentage below 40%. Very easy if the
CPU game sliders for shooting are set to 0. They will likely have 0% then.
Must finish the game for the achievement to register.

-------------------------------------
Lights Out             15 Points
-------------------------------------
You need to have a FG% above 55 with minimum 40 FG's attempted. Easy with
your sliders set to 100. Just shoot and you will make the shot unless you're
at the half-court. Must finish the game for the achievement to register.

-------------------------------------
Track Meet             15 Points
-------------------------------------
All you need to do is score 15 fastbreak points with a team. You get fastbreak
points when it's a 1-1 or 2-1 situation. Best to do when stealing the ball. 
Simply steal the ball, sprint and do a layup/dunk. It's not hard at all. 
Don't need to finish the game for the achievement to register.

-------------------------------------
Second Unit            15 Points
-------------------------------------
You have to score 40 points with your bench player. Shouldn't be hard. Once the
game starts, make some substitutions and score with the bench players. Don't
need to finish the game for the achievement to register.

-------------------------------------
Inside Domination      20 Points
-------------------------------------

You need to score 60 points from the paint. I will assume you know where the 
paint is, if you don't, why are you playing this game in the first place. Your 
best bet is to simply dunk in most of your attacks. Shouldn't be hard to get
this achievement. You don't need to finish the game to unlock this achievement.

-------------------------------------
Good Hands             20 Points
-------------------------------------
You need to get 20 assists while getting no more than 5 turnovers during the 
game. Set all of the defense and attributes of the CPU to 0. Then just don't
make crazy Steve Nash passes on Shaq and you're good. Must finish the game
for the achievement to be unlocked.

-------------------------------------
All Hustle             15 Points
-------------------------------------
For this one you'll need 10 offensive rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 steals. The 
steals shouldn't be a problem. The blocks shouldn't be a big deal either, but
if you followed my advice with the User Shooting set to 100 you'll need to 
adjust that. Simply set your shooting to 0 and just get offensive rebounds. 
Since neither you nor the CPU team are scoring you shouldn't have much problem 
with this. You do not have to finish the game to unlock this achievement.

-------------------------------------
All Heart              15 Points
-------------------------------------
You need to start the 4th period losing by 10 or more points and then win the
game. I suggest you set the CPU shooting to 100 and the User shooting to 100,
and play 2 minute period matches. Let the computer be ahead by 10-15 points
during the first 3 periods, then in the 4th one simply set the CPU shooting
to 0 and come back to win. You do have to finish the game for this achievement.

-------------------------------------
3-for-all              20 Points
-------------------------------------
You have to make 10 3-pointers while staying above 45% 3PT shooting percentage.
Impossible to mess up if you have 100 Shooting set up (unless you shoot from 
mid-court...). Must finish the game to unlock this achievement.

-------------------------------------
Lockdown               20 Points
-------------------------------------
Get 10 blocks and 10 steals during a game. You should accomplish this while
doing the 15 blocks achievement. Don't have to finish the game to unlock this
achievement.

-------------------------------------
Ice Water              15 Points
-------------------------------------

You need to FT over 85% and throw at least 15 FT's with any team. The best
way to do this one is to simply set fouls to 100, FT difficulty to 0 and
pick a good FT team. You must finish the game to unluck this achievement.
-------------------------------------
Suns vs. Lakers        15 Points
Spurs vs. Mavericks    15 Points
Pistons vs. Heat       15 Points
Suns vs. Mavericks     15 Points
Lakers vs. Clippers    15 Points
East vs. West          15 Points
-------------------------------------
You must win with the user controlled team on All-Star difficulty. You can
control whichever team you want. Best way to do this one is set the game 
to 1 minute, adjust the sliders so the CPU is horrible, set the difficulty
to All-Star and play each of the games. Must finish the games to unlock
the achievements.
