I have tried both of them in a few showdown games. I think Magic is slightly better in shooting, lay-ups and dunking. Although their speed are equal, and Magic has a higher agility, I feel like that Gary is a bit faster.
However, my classic lineup gameplay is so inconsistent and also there were not that many opponents for classic lineup and those I played against were either +3 or -3 ovr. Therefore I couldn’t really come to a conclusion that which one is better, especially in defense (which Gary has better stats) and also AI.
What do you think about them? If you played against them how is their AI?
I have Magic at lvl 5. I plan on maxing him this week. He is op. Inside and outside shooting is great. If you get him sprinting he will run through the opps defense. Most importantly I can shut down Simmons pretty easily. Payton is a great pg but Magic's height sets him apart.
I have BB Simmons with max level, 96ovr. In showdown and league, I play with both Magic96 and Payton97 often.
For me, AI Magic96 is not that good. I believe, manually, he would be great. Size does matter in this season.
I couldn't steal the ball from him much. But, cause he can't shoot good from long range. So, just press DEF and wait until he pass out the ball. Magic AI can select to pass to the good position very well. The same rate with Nash legend and Stockton playoff.
Last season, Magic AI was real beast. But, not for me this time.
For GP97, I feel his quickness and got the ability to shoot 3 very well. Totally different style with Magic.
I can't steal the ball from him much. Just very few times. His offense is much more aggressive. He will score on his own.
But, his pass is not useful like Magic too.
In my view, if you want the better AI, I do suggest GP97.
Talking about playing with their AI’s, I feel like it is so easy to play against Magic Rather than Payton. Simmons AI is of course better than these two. If their Ai performance is what your asking, Payton wins!
Hmmm, I have Magic maxed & I have trouble stealing when I play against him. I can shut down Simmons & steal from Payton pretty well. Magic doesn't seem to shoot as much as Simmons & Payton is tougher to guard bc he's quick & dribbles a lot. On Manual, I'd go with Magic, AI...prob Payton. My team doesn't score a whole lot when I autoplay, likely bc Magic isn't trying to score much. Still think he's more fun to play with though
