Whenever I draft a top prospect with purple potential, it seems like the season after they immediately drop to blue while players around me get up to blue. I set training to auto and have tried with and without coaching. I just don't know what to do. Players like MJ, Kobe, Shaq and Tim Duncan all have failed to live up to their potential. I've only ever hit on Hakeem Olajuwon.

This is interesting.. is there a rating in FBB that dictates development like lets say work ethic?

I agree sometimes it can be strange where you can have purple potential players tank hard, even with no input randomization.

If I recall, the ability of the coach will play into the development of the player. In these scenarios where your purple guy didn't fulfill his potential, were the coaches 5 star? What about the environment? Was he given playing time and contented the whole time? There are a lot of variables.

Beyond that, I do not fully trust the computer recommendation TBH because they'll call for heavy weighting in an area where the potential bars are low frequently.

IMO - playing time and "contention" have nothing to do with player development.

Perhaps HR could weight in but I don't think either of those have anything to do with how a player turns out.
