Conditional Coaching

This is one of the new features being brought to the Training portion of MyNBA in NBA 2K22. Conditional Coaching gives players the ability to help give coaching directives while they simulate games.

One of the pre-set conditions is "Garbage Time", all the player has to do is set a point value, let's use 15. Once the value is set, when the 4th quarter comes around and there's only a little time left, the starters will come out and the bench will sub in.

Conditional Coaching gives players more control during simulations, which we can all agree is a great addition.
