    Last year the story mode in NBA 2K16 that was written and directed by Spike Lee lacked interactivity as the user was essentially just a passenger observing a movie. Almost everyone agreed that MyCareer got significantly better once that story actually ended following the rookie season. One fundamental change is being made with the mode for 2K17 with that in mind. The focuses shifts back more to basketball rather than dealing with unrelated personalities. The theme of the "dynamic duo" i...

Earning extra VC has been the pr...
