So since they nerfed domination a while back there have been a lot of complaints about My Team being to money based. I have had the fortune of being able to buy some VC and go after chase cards but I know most people don’t. So here is a guide to getting better players/lots of MT in the current format and even going after Diamond Lebron without spending cash.
Building a Good Domination Team, for all positions, Defense is irrelevant.

PG: Fast, Good Layup, if you are lucky solid dunking. Think Isiah Cannan, Patty Mills, Nedovic, Norris Cole.
These will be your main scorers.
SG: Either Fast+good layup or Good Shooter. Think Tim Hardway III, Terrance Ross, Martell Webster
These will be your secondary scorers.
SF: 3pt Shooting, Think Carlos Delfino, Francisco Garcia, Jaren Jackson (spurs historic)
PF: 3pt Shooting, Think Rashard Lewis, Matt Bullard (89 3pt, Rockets historic)
C: Rebound, Standing Layup (not going to shoot a lot just for offensive rebounds and passes off of pick and roll/drives) Think Jan Vesely, Chris Anderson, Mychal Thompson (lakers historic), Will Purdue (spurs historic, 95+ off and def rebounding)
Play Style: Settings: Run in Transition, Create Chaos, Crash Offensive Boards
Offense: Try to get into the lane as quickly as possible, shoot quickly (think 6seconds offense), kick to shoots and rollers. Get free throws. Aim for 20pts per quarter. EDIT: Turn free throw difficulty to zero for easier free throws
Defense: Try to let them score as quickly as possible. Manual Centers and PFs to double team the ball handler, either they will find the open big man for a quick bucket or turn it over. And losing doesn’t matter even if it is by 40 points. After half-time, if you are not on pace for 75pts. Intentional Foul EVERY POSSESSION. Try to use your big men for these fouls as much as possible, you need the shooters to not foul out. Remember, you will not run out of players, the last 5 players CANNOT foul out in 2k.
Domination mode is approx. 33 free players some of which will be gold, and will help the main team. Also 6k per game MT racks up to packs quickly. In searching for Diamond Lebron I got Afflalo, Thaddeus Young, and Al Horford (so far) from my domination packs, which saved me spending any MT on those packs.
