-Make a perfect team and simulate the whole season. Then, at the end of the playoffs you will get a call that says how many points for season tasks you got. Usually if your team is good you will get about 8,000 points to spend. This takes time, but it also earns you tons of points.
-Get a created player and edit your gameplay settings to all shots 100, then set the quarter length to 2 minutes and shoot 100% for the game. You should get about 2,500 points every time you do this.
