Just like real NBA teams scout the opposition before a game, you should do the same to your opponent by checking their Line-up Tier. Also, challenge those who have played fewer games and have lost more often than they won. Likewise, you would be best advised not to use a boosting card early on, as you just might end up losing it to your opponent. And if you get better cards as you go along, you can feel comfortable discarding the worthless ones that you may have. If at all possible, avoid buying cards from the Auction House.
Instead, try to sell your cards at the Auction House, especially if your deck contains several rare ones, including some you might not need anyway because they play the same position. Try to sell slightly under the market value, to give yourself a better chance of making a sale, and use the money you earn to make the necessary improvements.
Truth be told, it may not be worth cheating if you consider the potential rewards you can reap. Generally speaking, you can start one season if you have at least ten Energy Cards, so as to allow everyone to play up to potential. Your team meter, or the rarity meter in other words, should ideally be almost full.
