You Can Learn A Lot About NBA Offenses From ‘NBA 2K19’

I’m convinced that most people who play NBA 2K don’t explore all of the game’s options. A few of its areas get minimal attention from fans: artificial intelligence, playbooks and playcalling. There is a lot of work that goes into making each coach’s style and the way teams run their offenses look and feel authentic…

‘NBA 2K19’ MyTEAM Has Immortalized Too Many Players

I am enjoying MyTeam in NBA 2K19 even more than prior releases in the series.

‘NBA 2K20’ Will Need New Player Badges

Player ratings are a big deal in NBA 2K, but any hardcore fan will tell you, the badges are what truly separates a player in the game.

‘NBA Live 19’ vs. ‘NBA 2K19’

NBA 2K League Mock Drafts Will Be Better This Year, Right?

The second season of the NBA 2K League will bring in a new crop of talent. New talent means a draft, and that leads to mock drafts. Mock drafts for professional sports leagues are fun and infuriating. The subjects of these drafts often hate where prognosticators project them and sometimes take exception with the evaluations…
