My Player Improvements We’d Like to See in NBA 2K13

  • andragonus

    My interest has been perked

  • Opal Morrill

    The early video games in the NBA typically have only a hand complete of excellent players on the subject and the late games obtained all the excellent players. Why is that? Doesn’t every video game count? What about the preseason? Do these video games count?
    Thanks experts.

  • brennon

    Great article, tottally agree with you man, My player mode should be the focus as well as Online play and 2K really need to step they’re games up and make huge improvements and stop the glitches.

    • Thanks Brennon. I really feel that if 2K can hash out a solid My Player mode, they’ll nail a solid game.

  • deuce

    believe it or not everyone does not play myplayer. i personally thinks its a bore and prefer association. having said that….if they only focused on myplayer and online im not buying dat shiiiii because its no better then 2k12 for me. stop being selfish and think of the game as a whole and how they can improve and essentially complete the game.

    • My Player is a standout mode that sets NBA 2K aside from the other basketball sims, and it’s one of the most played modes in the game. I said nothing about them focusing only on My Player, but they should make it better.

  • Marcia Hester

    1. Seeing the recently NBA playoffs offs and the incorrect calls or no calls towards one crew throughout a specific game.
    2. MBL has had some problems but no umpire is permitted to talk to people as in the NBA
    3 The NFL does not enable coversations with gamers the way the NBA does
    4. I have only seen a few soccer game titles but officers take care of themselves well.

  • Cecilia Osburn

    I never recognize why players like J.J. Reddick and Adam Morrison were not as profitable in the NBA as other rookie, like Deron Williams. Is it since they simply failed to alter to the recreation or is it due to the fact of the groups they are on?

    I mean, I by now have a feeling Tyler Hansborough would not make the changeover from university to NBA even though gamers like O.J. Mayo, Michael Beasley and Derrick Rose will extremely probable succeed.

    This seems to have happen in the earlier too, as a lot of of the university report holders are full unknowns in the NBA.

  • Matt Scott

    I agree my player needs to become more fun. And don’t force us to play unnecessary games against sorry ass opponents. Let us have a choice to pick a team to go to. Let us play with all 5 players it starts to get boring playing with one person all the time.

  • Abbey Spencer

    I was just wondering. By the way I know opening day is for baseball but I don’t know what the first recreation in NBA is so sorry. If there is a name I would actually value it. Many Thanks in advance.

  • Anne Felton

    Which crew has the ideal crew name?Which player the the very best name?Which player is the best(choose 3 ) fee them from 1-100?Which group is the ideal ?

  • Saundra Jarvie

    I do not recognize why gamers like J.J. Reddick and Adam Morrison weren’t as productive in the NBA as other rookie, like Deron Williams. Is it because they simply failed to alter to the video game or is it since of the groups they’re on?

    I mean, I currently have a sensation Tyler Hansborough would not make the changeover from college to NBA although players like O.J. Mayo, Michael Beasley and Derrick Rose will really most likely succeed.

    This appears to have transpire in the previous too, as many of the higher education report holders are full unknowns in the NBA.

  • Joanne Mefford

    which 1 has far more pressure?

    takin a video game successful shot in game7 finals(is ur final nba recreation and previous possibility in ur lifestyle to acquire a nba champ)

    or

    takin a video game winnin shot that issues to ur life?

  • Loretta Neale

    Can a nba crew sign a international basketball participant with out him getting into the draft?

    Because the cavs are searching at Ricky Rubio, but he will be in the leading 5 in the draft. Could the cavs just indication him if he isn’t going to want to enter the draft?

  • Anne Felton

    At this stage following conferences between the nba preps/owners and nbapa the two sides have created small 2 no motion about the income split and cap. Some folks experience the time will not happen.

  • Anonymous

    GREAT READ, HERE’S MY POV: NBA2K ” MY PLAYER ” THE VIDEO GAME: This could easily outsell any NBA2k game you produce. This mode should stand ALONE and you guys at 2k should give this mode the respect it deserves. The fans have already given you the blueprint, what’s the hold up? over 5 million sold huh? That’s cool. But how about doubling those numbers by giving the fans what the f&%k they want!

    THE JOY IS IN THE JOURNEY:

    Bring back the draft combine, summer league, training camp, D League, and take it a step further by bringing over pre-draft workouts from association and let us experience the actual process of making it to the league! 2k was on some BS with this rookie showcase nonsense in 2k12. Scrap that and give us the real platform players have to take in order to make it, not some NBA elite reincarnation of a fantasy all-star game for rookies.

    CUT THE CRAP 2k:

    2k needs to really, really, REALLY grasp the concept of a level playing field. DEFENSE is just as important as offense if not more, but for the life of me I can’t seem to figure out why all of my stupid a%& teammates play like Javale McGee when he wore that atrocious wizards uniform.

    These are professional players not junior high scrubs, they should be playing at a high level and actually engaged in the action not just out there taking up space.

    SHOW ME THE $$$:

    You mean to tell me it’s only 5 shoe companies with athletes in the league? yeah ok. You guys have the best basketball game on the planet EVERY YEAR but yet an still your shoes look like Sh%t and you never have updated accessories. My player should be given the option to choose which company he wants to affiliate himself with and they should pay my player via contract negotiation. Don’t just assume I want to represent Jordan Brand just because YOUR company is under contract with them. What ever happened to variety? Where are all of these endorsements 2k promised? The magazines and sh%t were cute but c’mon son! we need something groundbreaking. You have Gatorade on everything but I still have yet to be approached by them, what gives? More endorsements and more compensation are needed.

    DEVELOPING A BEAST:

    Okay 2k, Let’s revamp the ” Shootaround ” option and turn that into ” Workout “. Have the ability to sign your own trainer or use your team’s trainer and have him assign your player objectives to complete such as (20 Jumpers from a certain spot on the court, make a certain amount of Ft’s, suicides, etc.) you should earn extra SP’s for completion. ” Scrimmage ” should be known as ” Team Practice “. Team Chemistry should be greatly affected, if you play the game right your team should embrace you more after every practice. If you’re a selfish player and it shows throughout practice the team should shut you out more in games. This is also another way to utilize the My Buzz system. Let My Player’s personality be dictated by his play on the court, no preset BS! Also the D league should be more of an active option for teams. If I’m not ready to contribute or If I’m not helping the team with the minutes I’m given my team should send me to the D League and make me earn my spot back. nothing should be handed to me, especially if my rating is lower than the starter of my position.

    CAN A PLAYER GET SOME LOVE?:

    The commentators act as if my player doesn’t exist and it absolutely ruins the experience. I lead the league in PPG but they only mention Kevin Durant who’s in 3rd, huh? This mode needs some type of storyline or they should implement dynamic broadcasting so that My Player feels more apart of the NBA rather than a mere walk-on from out of nowhere.

    HOW DO I LOOK?:

    Dear 2k, Your Create – A – Player mode sucks big time. Face, Hair, Tat’s, Accessories, this mode sadly needs a major overhaul and this could be a big step in the right direction for the My Player mode as a whole.

    LOGIC:

    Stop the foolish trading and give us the chance to develop within a stable system, every year I have a different team and that usually plays a part on the court.

    IS THAT REALLY WHO I THINK IT IS?:

    Stars don’t play like stars and the guys on my team can’t hit shots whatsoever. I understand you can’t make everything but Melo missing an uncontested jumper is highly unlikely. I would like to see players react to plays on both ends realistically and make shots their suppose to make, what’s the use of having a maxed out mid-range and consistency rating when My Player can’t hit that shot consistently?

    ALL FUN AND GAMES:

    Make the whole My Player experience fun again! No CPU advantages, No restrictions, No default actions. Let ME do the decision making when it comes to MY PLAYER. The draft should be two rounds not one! I played one day and had a terrible game on purpose, bad interviews and all, got drafted with the 17th pick rating 60 that’s not realistic. If i play like sh%t I shouldn’t be rewarded for it lol. I should be 2nd round to undrafted, that’s when the combine, camps, and pre-draft workouts come into play.

    LAST BUT NOT LEAST:

    I’m sure 2k is paying little to no attention to the fans because they keep selling us the same game from the previous year with make-up and some type of gimmick. I just want this mode to shine and actually mimic the road real players take in order to realize their NBA dreams, we all know there is no easy way to the league.

    ** MY PLAYER SHOULD BE A STAND-ALONE TITLE AND 2K SHOULD GIVE THE 5 MILLION+ THAT PURCHASED 2K12 SOMETHING WE ALL ACTUALLY WANT!

  • Amie Wolken

    which one has far more pressure?

    takin a video game successful shot in game7 finals(is ur previous nba recreation and last likelihood in ur life to win a nba champ)

    or

    takin a sport winnin shot that matters to ur life?

  • Elinor Tuten

    Can a nba team sign a international basketball player with out him coming into the draft?

    Because the cavs are seeking at Ricky Rubio, but he will be in the best 5 in the draft. Could the cavs just signal him if he doesn’t want to enter the draft?

  • Virtuoso

    How bout…you make a college basketball game considering u abandoned college hoops in 08, and start my player from college and transfer ur player into 2k like EA does in NCAA Football and Madden

    • KD

      🙂 Agreed!!

    • Q

      Yeah i was just thinking that

  • Marco

    the cost off skills point is right…If you are not good to play and earn them, fuck you!!!

  • Mario Tello

    Great article. They gotta make the contract negotiations better as well. After 3 seasons ( ROY, 3x all star, 2x season/finals MVP, overall rating 99, pos.&ovr rank 1st) I get offered bogus contracts! 4yr 52M??? Seriously? But a forward ovr 71 gets 4 yr 102M? And the attribute caps r crazy too. Gotta pay mad money for 1 point cap increase, then pay to increase it? And it would be nice to get taken out the game with the rest of the starters when we r blowing a team out. Or at least have the option to ask to stay in the game when in foul trouble or ask to come out if your up enough

  • Lame Suggestions

    You seriously care about cars, a house, a family, and an agent in an NBA sim game? That’s ridiculous! What you’re describing is “The Sims” with an NBA career option, and that’s ridiculously stupid. What’s needed is an NBA MyPlayer simulation game with an emphasis on gameplay and realism.

  • Roslyn Pasley

    Which team has the best team name?Which player the the best name?Which player is the best(choose 3 ) rate them from 1-100?Which team is the best ?

  • josh12rox

    I think the My Player mode that was added a couple of years back was an awesome move. I do feel there are some things that could stand to be added though:

    1)Allow the player a chance to create their own dunks:
    Yes, dunking like MJ, Melo, Wade & James is cool. But let’s be real. Wouldn’t you like to see the crowd on their feet after your own personalized jam? They could make the creation process like the dunk contest. Slow it down to allow the player time to put in a realistic combination. Then, once it’s created, it’ll play out at real game time in the actual games.

    2)Building your own rivalries. We all have players we love in NBA. And we have players we don’t love as much. I would love the opportunity to trash talk (not cursing or anything ridiculous), but to call out players.

    “Kobe Bryant? Nah, we’re not worried about him. We’ll shut him down tonight.”

    3)More interaction with the coach. I’m sure the NBA leaders have a big impact on the coaches decisions. I want my player to be the same way.

    “Coach, put me in. Coach, let me guard him. Coach, I need a breather.”

    Do you know how often I was frustrated b/c I was a PG, but watched the other teams SG destroy us. And of course, you lose points for “leaving your assignment.”

    4) More interview questions. At least during big games, rivalries and such. And break down the answers a little bit better. I definitely see an improvement from last years, “answer professionally. answer arrogantly.” But still, the answers I chose aren’t exactly what I thought they’d be.

    5) Starting out better than a junior high school bench warmer.
    I mean, I get it. You want us to climb the ladder in the NBA. But when my player can’t hit open 5 foot jumpers, why is he there in the first place?

    6) I know I spoke with a 2K rep and they said they don’t allow flagrant fouls b/c it encourages violence. Ok, gotcha. But what about techs for arguing with a ref? Players throwing their hands in the air, taunting or staring down a player after a play.Hanging on the rim. That should make the other team play harder, thus making the game more realistic and difficult. It doesn’t have to be violent, childish or ignorant. But it can make it more intense.

    7) Give the player his own pre game ritual. Something small, but maybe that can be added to endorsement commercials and such. KG bangs his head, James throws anthrax in the air and Wade does pull ups on the rim. It’ll be cool if my player could do something. Heck, have’em do the Dougie at half court, lol.

    8) When I become the best player on the team, I wanna feel like it. I don’t want the announcers saying Rose had 8pts and 6 assists, when I had 27 points, 9 rebounds and 11 steals. I’m the star, treat me as such.

    9) After your first dominant season, I think you should have an impact on who the team drops/picks up. If someone is playing poorly, you should be able to voice that. And if you feel someone is an asset to the team, voice that too. Maybe even moving ppl to different positions. I’d love to have Rondo as my 1, and Rose as my 2.

    10) When teams are pursuing you, maybe they can sit down and offer you contracts. Or let you know who they’d be trading to get you. I would hate to go to the Bulls to find out that Rose left in the trade to get me. But if I were the SG and they traded Rip, I may be interested.

    Those are a few thinks off the top of my noggin. Let me know what y’all think.

    • Jessee

      you got some pretty good ideas

  • Chester

    I don’t understand why players like J.J. Reddick and Adam Morrison weren’t as successful in the NBA as other rookie, like Deron Williams. Is it because they simply failed to adjust to the game or is it because of the teams they’re on?

    I mean, I already have a feeling Tyler Hansborough won’t make the transition from college to NBA while players like O.J. Mayo, Michael Beasley and Derrick Rose will very likely succeed.

    This appears to have happen in the past too, as many of the college record holders are complete unknowns in the NBA.

    I wanted to know what the actual website was for 2K Sports or NBA 2K was. I’m hoping to posts/email my idea to an actual rep. I spoke with one before on 2K11. He gave professional answers and told me why flagrant fouls weren’t in the games. I’d like to posts/email my thoughts on 2k13.

    “Kobe Bryant? Nah, we’re not worried about him. We’ll shut him down tonight.”

    3)More interaction with the coach. I’m sure the NBA leaders have a big impact on the coaches decisions. I want my player to be the same way.

    “Coach, put me in. Coach, let me guard him. Coach, I need a breather.”

    Do you know how often I was frustrated b/c I was a PG, but watched the other teams SG destroy us. And of course, you lose points for “leaving your assignment.”

    4) More interview questions. At least during big games, rivalries and such. And break down the answers a little bit better. I definitely see an improvement from last years, “answer professionally. answer arrogantly.” But still, the answers I chose aren’t exactly what I thought they’d be.

    5) Starting out better than a junior high school bench warmer.
    I mean, I get it. You want us to climb the ladder in the NBA. But when my player can’t hit open 5 foot jumpers, why is he there in the first place?

    6) I know I spoke with a 2K rep and they said they don’t allow flagrant fouls b/c it encourages violence. Ok, gotcha. But what about techs for arguing with a ref? Players throwing their hands in the air, taunting or staring down a player after a play.Hanging on the rim. That should make the other team play harder, thus making the game more realistic and difficult. It doesn’t have to be violent, childish or ignorant. But it can make it more intense.

    7) Give the player his own pre game ritual. Something small, but maybe that can be added to endorsement commercials and such. KG bangs his head, James throws anthrax in the air and Wade does pull ups on the rim. It’ll be cool if my player could do something. Heck, have’em do the Dougie at half court, lol.

    8) When I become the best player on the team, I wanna feel like it. I don’t want the announcers saying Rose had 8pts and 6 assists, when I had 27 points, 9 rebounds and 11 steals. I’m the star, treat me as such.

    9) After your first dominant season, I think you should have an impact on who the team drops/picks up. If someone is playing poorly, you should be able to voice that. And if you feel someone is an asset to the team, voice that too. Maybe even moving ppl to different positions. I’d love to have Rondo as my 1, and Rose as my 2.

    10) When teams are pursuing you, maybe they can sit down and offer you contracts. Or let you know who they’d be trading to get you. I would hate to go to the Bulls to find out that Rose left in the trade to get me. But if I were the SG and they traded Rip, I may be interested.

    Those are a few thinks off the top of my noggin. Let me know what y’all think.

  • balinderk2000

    I heard that the average nba player make over 5 million? But do they train vigorously every day. I hate to become a b bal player if they are training like 10 hrs a day?

  • Lachlan

    I was just wondering. By the way I know opening day is for baseball but I don’t know what the first game in NBA is so sorry. If there is a name I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

  • Roberto

    Great, i agree with everything. And i would like to add one thing. They need to let us choose the color of our accessories FOR EACH GAME. I think everybody want to see the celtics playing all in white at home and black away. Every time actually do that.

  • Goe122

    I searched using yahoo and I couldn’t find the answer to this. Does anyone know if an NBA team has ever had a bad start (the first few months of the season) but still pulled off a championship?

    You guessed it my team is really bad right now (so far) but there is a chemistry problem that I hope will be resolved soon.

  • happyha31

    They are planning another meeting tomorrow to try to end the lockout.

    What do you think? Will we have an NBA season this year?

  • turg143

    I want to know about different documentaries about players from the NBA , highschool, or college and there hardwork and lives. I’ve watched a few but i want to see more. I like documentaries on short players btw, lol. Thank You.

  • Milk84

    I got a 10 minute speech to give tommorow on the nba lockout which isnt fair because I dont know the first thing about it. I do know there is probably a lot of facts which could keep me talking for 10 minutes though. All I know right now is there is people in basketball arguing over money. But who is argueing and why. And why are these people important to the nba.

  • gail C

    It’s pretty much accepted and acknowledged by NBA people that playoff basketball is officiated differently than the regular season. My question is, how is that ok? Shouldn’t a foul be a foul whether it’s preseason or Game 7 of the Finals?

  • Thomas Lopez

    No Boston Celtics names but I’m pretty Boston Celtics sure that Boston Celtics you know Boston Celtics which team Boston Celtics I’m talking about since Boston Celtics this is the NBA section….
    @Helen Celtics – Are you gonna answer the question or just take this up as an opportunity to talk shxt?

  • Sir fliesalot

    How can I display the songs of a radio player that I’ve embedded in my web site?

  • andresumoza

    I want to know how much time did a team in NBA history have to wait to score in nba game history…. it is true that a team didn’t score a point for three seasons? I need this answer please!

  • Motordom

    Don’t get me wrong I absolutetly hate the series with a passion, but I need to play a baseball game, and so I was wondering, when will 2K games start talking about the detals of MLB 2K10?

  • Brock

    I think there should be a gameplay of being in the NBA Olympics that would make the game sooo fun

  • brock

    also before the rookie showcase and stuff,let your my player be in high school for a couple games and then be in the showcase like they do in NCAA football

  • Scorch Delta-62

    I’ve heard rumors that they want to challenge EA’s Fight Night series with a boxing game of their own. I think 2K would probably do it better since their games seem to be much more realistic. Can anyone confirm that this rumor is true?

    • kutty17

      You really took the time out to talk about something that has nothing to do with NBA2k bro.

  • nathan

    i think there games are better then all the maddan’s.

  • romario

    i think 2k sports need to add driving cars and buying houses to the game and make it a very realistic game

  • Bryan J

    For me, since neither the Mets nor the Yankees are in the postseason, I am just watching football on the weekends and then actually focusing on my work and planning for my future. To be honest, The NBA has turned to shit over the past 10 years. The Knicks get paid millions and can’t play!

  • Chris R

    its weird if they don’t because they have it in college basketball and major league baseball and the NBA

  • brincks26

    Like what EA has done with NHL 11 and so on. Thanks.

  • turg143

    Even since I’ve been an NBA fan the Stanley Cup finals are usually an entire series ahead of the NBA playoffs. So while the NBA is wrapping up their conference finals the NHL is getting started on their finals. This has been the case every year that I can remember (29 year old die hard NBA fan) except this year. Does anyone know why this is? Has this ever happened before?

  • gail C

    Do guys think 2K Sports makes the better sports games and are they better than EA Sports games they put out ?

  • Disrae

    Im making a scoring small forward in nba 2k12 and i need to know what team to go to.

  • Cam

    There should be more college like division 2 and division 3 school and fiba world championship and induviual work outs with the rookie show case and more team that are interested in u and could go 1 though 60 in the draft

  • Johnky J

    I am a big fan of 2k sports college basketball games but i am worried there will never be another one

  • LN13

    I think 2k makes more arcade type sports games and they are so unrealistic.EA on the other hand makes realistic sports games and they been it for awhile and they are so close to mastering it.

  • ScRSC

    Is it because the FCC is racist! Really though I’ve seen more flesh at a local walmart.
    Realest – I would marry her she’s quite the looker :Q
    QT – So athletes should have to have blurred outfits when competing on tv? It’s no worse than what they usually wear out in the field.
    Bleu – Gymnasts wear similar outfits and they aren’t banned from TV.

  • Brian

    Can anyone tell what the cheats are and where I can get them, or if your a generous person know what they are.

    Thankyou for answering.

  • Ryan Dunn

    Hi i want to purchase nba 2k12. Recently there have been a lot of trades and free agency signing in the NBA. I really don’t want to trade and sign players manually. Can someone please tell me how to update the roster online to the current NBA rosters right now. I am new to this so please explain in detail:) thanks!

  • Willie

    How much did 2k sports pay MJ, Magic, Bird in the game NBA 2k12?
    How much did 2k sports pay current stars like LeBron, Kobe, Durant, etc. in the game NBA 2k12?

  • floydian8717

    When does the NBA draft start and how does it work? I have no idea what the NBA draft even is, since I just recently started watching Nba a couplemmonths ago. How does the draft work? Is it like random people go to random teams?

  • zigg3ns

    My brother just got 2K Sports MLB 2K9 for his birthday and he can’t figure out how you bat!! Please can you help us! thanks so much.

  • forahobby

    I just bought MLB Front Office Manager for xbox 360 but the rosters are not updated… Is there anyway I can update them to a more recent roster? Thanks

  • Xavier Hawthorne

    either way they both count as zero points or is one worth more then the other, and since when do you get points for trying in the NBA.

  • Lucas H

    Is 2k sports going to make MLB front office for PS2?

  • Agent 47

    The early games in the NBA usually have only a hand full of good players on the field and the late games got all the good players. Why is that? Doesn’t every game count? What about the preseason? Do those games count?
    Thanks experts.

  • Jonathan

    I think it is a little unethical that NBA players(not sure about other professional sports) are often times not notified until they are traded. I often hear stories about how a player had to find out from someone else other than his coach of team general manager. I was wondering if there are any rules or regulations in the NBA regarding this matter.

    Thanks ahead of time.

  • Agent 47

    I know that the NBA commissioner is David Stern, but what are all the other types of commissioners? Like the one that suspend people and etc. Know any? Or any sites that tell you?

  • Christopher J

    Can a nba team sign a international basketball player with out him entering the draft?

    Because the cavs are looking at Ricky Rubio, but he will be in the top 5 in the draft. Could the cavs just sign him if he doesn’t want to enter the draft?

  • ericmreitz

    I have NBA 2K10 for the xbox 360 and I have xbox live, I have NEVER been able to connect to the 2K server and its really starting to tick me off because I cant download rosters, players, etc. How do I fix this problem?

  • Swagedupkid

    Are you dumb ricky rubio plays for the timberwolves and has been for a year… And the 2k10 servers have been shyt down now you have to buy the most recent game

  • friendly 4

    2k games for MLB arent that good and wondering if theres any MLB games coming out in the next year or 2 not being made by 2k sports… or if the SHOW goes to xbox.

  • Mr. 22g

    Every time I play my player I want to break my Xbox. I’m not very good at NBA games but I find them fun because I love basketball. I want the ability to turn it to rookie. My guy is a 64 overall and on pro D. Rose and many others overpower me all game so I end up with 400 point a game eventhough I average 25 points a game, since my guy can shoot. It takes so long to bring my rating up it’s pointless to play.

  • Rishabh Bajpai

    For as long as I can remember the NHL playoffs have always been an entire series ahead of the NBA playoffs. When the NHL was in the finals the NBA was in the conference finals. This year the NBA ended before the NHL. Has this ever happened before? Does anyone know why it happened this year?

  • Rassling Fundamentals

    Uhh I just started watching basketball and I find it interesting, my friends tell me that a ring is an accomplishment to a players career. I’m mad confused on how someone earns a ring in the NBA, so how does a player earn one?

  • baldy eire

    Like lets face it EA sports ha sh*t the bed last few years and 2K has just gotten Better

  • evil chevy

    I just want to know how to make a perfect score on nba live 08 for ps2 on the dunk contest. Like the 720 dunk or under the butt or back or through youur lags twice.

  • Jeanelle the Retard

    Every year they forget to do this in each game and I have to edit his attributes to a 99 to make him more realistic.

  • che-che

    I thought that once a company makes a contract, no other company can make video games besides the company that has the contract. e.g. EA Sports has a contract with NFL and 2K Sports have one with NBA. Neither company can make the competitors games, yet both companies make NHL. Why?

    I read something about lockout but not sure what that is. Can anyone help me out with legitimate links?

    Thanks

  • Salam

    I don’t understand why players like J.J. Reddick and Adam Morrison weren’t as successful in the NBA as other rookie, like Deron Williams. Is it because they simply failed to adjust to the game or is it because of the teams they’re on?

    I mean, I already have a feeling Tyler Hansborough won’t make the transition from college to NBA while players like O.J. Mayo, Michael Beasley and Derrick Rose will very likely succeed.

    This appears to have happen in the past too, as many of the college record holders are complete unknowns in the NBA.

  • Cupcakerum

    How could such a successful business expect gamers to actually enjoy this game? How could they expect people to not return this worthless excuse of a game? MLB players should be ashamed that their names are even associated with this time vampire.

  • Dr Dorian

    I know NCAA 2009 from EA is coming out tomorrow. Will 2K sports be releasing NCAA 2K9?

  • Sergeant Pickle

    i know mlb the show is not EA but its way better than 2k10. and omg nba live is way better than 2k10. like wow nhl 10-11 way better than 2k10. Why is this when will 2k make a good baseball game?

  • mrankinmatt

    I am trying to download the most up to date roster for NHL 2K7 on XBOX 360. For some reason, it’s telling me that it is unable to download and to try again later. I know that the 2K8 titles are out or are coming and I think that might have something to do with it.

  • mike s

    BQ- Who do you think will have a better career in the NBA: Andrew Goudelock or Jimmer Fredette?
    BQ2- Who do you think will have a better career in the NBA: Darius Morris or Norris Cole?
    BQ3- What do you think of NBA 2K12 giving LeBron James a 98 rating and Kobe a 94 rating?

  • Miguel M

    I am just curious if which sports gaming company do you like more? If so, please explain and give some of their titles that you like. Don’t just rely on one specific sport, I am asking for the overall titles that they have. Thanks!

  • Nick

    I use PS3 & every time I try to go online it says, “Starting a new game mode will lose any unsaved data. Continue?” & then I’m forced to make a new account. WHY IS THIS?! How do I fix this? I’m sick of this, I wanna play online!!!!!!

  • Death Knight

    i just wanted to know cause im a madden fan but it seems like the madden creators step their game up when they have some competition.

  • balinderk2000

    how did the show 07 come out, is there a loop hole that they found and if there is why dosen’t EA sports do the same because i think the MVP series is better in every way possible, 2k sports just sucks.

  • Elijah luv

    I play nba 2k10 my player mode, but i hate that my overall is so low. Its cool that im starting the games, and didn’t get cut, but i hate that i miss wide open and that my overall is like 57. Please give me tips or cheats for my overall problem. ALL FOR PS3 THO!

  • blarg blarg

    After I updated the NBA 2k12 roster, the season that I am playing crashed. I am unable to continue the season. How can I update the roster and continue with the season with the new roster?
    Since I do not play online game, I did a manual update.

  • shahedC

    do i have to change the settings or something. I always want to hit home runs in this game everytime i bat. Where do i put my fingers on the joystick. Thanks for your imput.

  • DuckieM10

    Wilt chamberlion is argubly the greatest center in NBA history. but what were the conditions around him? 27 RPG and 50PPG. those numbers are just two good to be true. Is there any variables that make it harder knowadays that chamberlian played against?

  • Alina Elliott

    1. Watching the recently NBA playoffs offs and the incorrect calls or no calls against one team during a particular game.
    2. MBL has had some problems but no umpire is permitted to talk to players as in the NBA
    3 The NFL does not allow coversations with players the way the NBA does
    4. I have only seen a few soccer games but officials handle themselves well.

  • Sophia C

    I need to record my games on 2k11 for the games contest and idk how to record the games while playing

  • Mark

    I would love to have some but I’m sure its hard to find.

  • The Dark Knight

    I say have the games by state or region or something. It’ll be hard to have all the teams in the country on a disc. Would you buy it. lets say you could by the rosters separate like NCAA games. I think it would be pretty nice. Winning the state championship. Recruiting Middle Schoolers. What-not.
    And am i the only one sick of the dang Vick questions. Will he go to jail? Will he play in the NFL? Will he go to jail?

    And absurd answers like He should be thrown into a pit of hungy dogs and then hanged. What!? Thats the sickest thing i’ve ever heard!

  • isk8at818

    The new version of NBA is almost out from 2k and I have heard nothing about the player being able to commit technical and flagrant fouls. Why the hell is this? I think it would make the game a lot more fun and definitely more authentic.
