  • Which Pro-Am from the upcoming NBA games is the most intriguing?
    Posted August 18th, 2015 at 11:15 am 8 Comments »
    NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16 don't share a lot in common in terms of the modes they'll be offering up, but they do have one that is not just similar in nature but share the same name: Pro-Am. The 2K Pro-Am takes the place of last year's Jordan Rec Center, and continues with 5-on-5 (every player can be controlled by a different user or some spots taken by CPU) and NBA rules. Leaderboards and matchmaking have been added - no more time wasted waiting in "Got Next" spots! However the biggest new...

    Posted August 6th, 2015 at 3:45 pm 27 Comments »
    A while back three new historic teams were announced for NBA 2K16. Now 2K Sports has confirmed there will be a total of 12 classic teams added with the upcoming game. Two of the remaining nine teams were revealed today. The 1999-00 Portland Trail Blazers and 2002-03 Dallas Mavericks join the 1999-00 Toronto Raptors, 2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers, and 2007-08 Boston Celtics. 2K will be unveiling two teams every Thursday, filling out the unknown seven over the next five weeks. The '99 B...
  • First look at the 2K Pro-Am for NBA 2K16
    Posted July 30th, 2015 at 5:45 pm 18 Comments »
    If it weren't for the unprecedented leaks regarding the feature set of NBA 2K16, virtually nothing about the upcoming game would have been known even with August quickly approaching. There hasn't been much of anything official, not even a screenshot. Finally 2K Sports announced something today to do with the game, and its the Pro Am mode which had its description leaked last week, and will act as a replacement for the online Jordan Rec Center mode. Pro Am will, like the Rec Center, involv...
  • More NBA 2K16 feature information leaks
    Posted July 23rd, 2015 at 9:00 am 40 Comments »
    It's rare to have any game information leak prior to the planned marketing schedule for the annual sports games. That's especially true of 2K Sports who has always been very protective of their traditional cycle. NBA 2K16 releases in two months, and the company hasn't even put out a single screenshot or shown any gameplay footage yet, while revealing very little about the feature set and hinting any news would still be several weeks away. That makes what's going on with NBA 2K16 outside o...
  • Settling the debate with NBA 2K15: All-Time Lakers vs All-Time Bulls
    Posted July 23rd, 2015 at 8:00 am 3 Comments »
    The highly publicized back-and-forth between Shaquille O'Neal and Scottie Pippen over the last week, concerning which team of all-time greats would win between the Lakers and Bulls, can't go much further than trash talk (their preferred method) and well-reasoned lineup analysis and speculation. However with NBA 2K15 we can see an actual game play out with rosters containing all the legends, both current and past, that make up the storied franchises. With that in mind I ran a simulation ...
  • Discussing the role college teams will play in NBA 2K16
    Posted July 21st, 2015 at 9:30 am 3 Comments »
    Last week it was discovered, through a leaked achievements list, that MyCareer Mode in NBA 2K16 will include some form of college implementation in the early stages of the player's career path. That news, combined with there being at least 11 schools that have been licensed by 2K Sports through the Collegiate Licensing Company for use in video games, makes it appear likely that some actual universities are going to appear in NBA 2K16. It would be the first time in years that any represe...
  • The winners and losers from the free agency period for NBA 2K16
    Posted July 17th, 2015 at 11:30 am 4 Comments »
    There has been no shortage of drama this month since the free agency period opened for the NBA. Big decisions were made by impact players to change teams, one of those decisions was reversed at the last minute, prestige teams of the past came up empty on attempts to attract big names, and several trades were executed along the way. The changes have bolstered the quality of some teams, while others have seem themselves weakened in the process. Looking ahead to NBA 2K16, what five teams imp...
  • 2K Sports has the license for some colleges that may appear in NBA 2K16
    Posted July 16th, 2015 at 2:45 pm 23 Comments »
    Earlier this week we learned, among the other leaked features for NBA 2K16, that college ball will be playing some role in the new MyCareer story mode. Announcing where you'll play your college ball at and declaring for the NBA Draft are two of the big moments early on in the career of "Frequency Vibrations". Obviously the college aspect is not going to be a fully blown out College Hoops 2K experience. There aren't going to be real players or representations based on them, there aren't ...
