NBA 2K15’s biggest ratings movers
The NBA Draft is tonight signalling a quick turn from the Finals to the unofficial start of the next season. Even of more impact is free agency which will open on July 1 though players can't officially sign until July 10.
With that in mind I put together one more look back on the 2014-15 season in NBA 2K15. What players had their ratings rise the most, and who took the most significantÂ hits? Flip through theÂ full listÂ of players with details on Sporting News.

The NBA 2K15 Finals Sim Was Eerily Close to Having an Identical Game One Ending
Earlier this week I posted a comprehensive simulation of the NBA Finals with NBA 2K15 at Hit the Pass. It included game summaries with highlight clips, stats, and analysis.
When publishers complete and hype their own simulations they typically just hit a button and provide the result. Actually watching the games leads to the emergence of storylines and the ability to identify drama that takes place within them.
As Game One played out last night - the Warriors outlasting the Cavaliers i...
Spike Lee’s NBA 2K16 MyCareer Mode is More Story-Focused and Less About You
We've known about Spike Lee's involvement with NBA 2K16 since April but today 2K Sports finally confirmed his presence with the game and explained the role he's had in shaping the popular story mode first introduced in 2K14.
Lee has written and directed the mode for NBA 2K16 and it appears it'll no longer feature your created MyPlayer, at the very least in name. Instead the story focuses on a player named Frequency Vibrations - and no that's not a joke - whose "personal exploits off the c...
Detailed Breakdown of the 2015 NBA Finals as Simulated by NBA 2K15
After a week's waitÂ for the 2015 NBA Finals to begin, they'll finally tip-off tomorrow night. The Golden State Warriors take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a series heavily favored to go the Warriors' way.
Over at Hit The Pass, the new website headed by myself and Rich Grisham that launched today, is a run-through of the entire series as simulated in NBA 2K15. Every single minute of every game was watched and noted and then highlights were pulled along with statistics and analysis. Roster...
Three of the New Classic Teams for NBA 2K16
2K Sports recently revealed three new historic teams for NBA 2K16, and strongly hinted that there are other teams being added as well. It's been a few years since new teams were introduced into the series so it's fairly big news.
They are the 99-00Â Toronto Raptors, 00-01 Los Angeles Lakers, and 07-08 Boston Celtics.
In a piece written for Sporting News the three teams are examinedÂ in greater detail including the level of success they had, their rosters, andÂ the role classic teams ha...
Simming a Series Between the 95-96 Bulls vs 85-86 Celtics in NBA 2K15
When discussion arises regarding the greatest teams in the history of the NBA, the two that generally get the most support are the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls and the 1985-86 Boston Celtics.
So, what if these teams were able to face-off in a seven game series? It's possible only by using NBA 2K15. With that in mind a series simulation was arranged and played out to maybe a surprising, but undoubtedlyÂ definitive result.
Check out the complete simulation which went up on Sporting News today. ...
Pre-Ordering NBA 2K16 Gets You The Game Four Days Early
2K Sports announced today that NBA 2K16 will release on Tuesday, September 29. However those that pre-order the game will get it on Friday, September 25.
Interestingly with the release date moved up into September that appears to represent a change in the latest licensing contract with the league which begins this year with 2K and EA Sports. Traditionally the NBA has restricted games from going out prior to the first Tuesday in October.
In addition to getting the game earlier the pre-o...
