It's easy to sum it up when you're just talking about practice. We're sitting in here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we in here talking about practice. I mean, listen, we're talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game. Not, not… Not the game that I go out there and die for, and play every game like it's my last. Not the game, but we're talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that?… And we talking about practice. I know I supposed to be there. I know I'm supposed to lead by example... I know that... And I'm not.. I'm not shoving it aside, you know, like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I do. I honestly do... But we're talking about practice man. What are we talking about? Practice? We're talking about practice, man.

Quite possibly my favorite NBA 2K of the recent releases this decade. I've played 11, 15, and 16, and I like 13 the best for how the game is designed. Yes it would be nice to have the game engine in 16, but there are certain aspects that the newer game has added that actually make the game feel less realistic. This isn't the most realistic game as far simulation goes but it feels the smoothest to play. Also for playing on a computer that's less graphically capable, this game can run decent

Don't buy this game.

2K shot down all ONLINE servers you won't be able to play it online.
That's right they want us to buy it every year otherwise we can basically GTFO.

Downvoted for sure.
