I’m not even on a budget, but 400k for any card is ridiculous imo. I spend 43k on the shoe, 7k for heat check Klay (during crash) & had all the badges from TTO. So for 50k I got a beast who helps not get equalized so hard in Unlimited.
I feel this, OP. The higher tier HC players can be budget alternatives to these D/PD cards. I haven’t been able to scoop a new Harden yet, and I was seriously considering HC Harden. I saw some as low as 15k last night, but I wanted to find one that had all the bronze badges golded up. Those sellers wanted a lil more lol
Or buy chris mullin, drazen petrovic, or ray allen. Ray allen a little iffy because of his release but most people use klay as a 1 dimensional player, and the 3 I listed shoot literally as good as klay
