The controls are so amazing in 2k13! I really do wish they would upgrade the association mode - It's 80% of what I do.
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

Got my copy on the weekend, so far so good...

I actually hurt my knee playing basketball a couple of nights ago, so, I am working from home (playing 2K13)...
Sucks that my knee is no good, but, at least I have 2K to pass the time...
I have started My Career, where I was drafted by the Rockets at 14, or wherever they picked around there.  Going to have to demand a trade to Boston soon, maybe when my player gets a little better, don't want virtual KG cussing me out.
Also started season mode just to get familiar playing with the Celtics so I can beat my friends when they come over for games night.
My PS3/2K name is BigDave_31 if anyone is ever up for a game.

Bought the game today and have so far enjoyed it a lot. The only thing I dislike about this game is the use of VC. Really, I hate everything about the coins, be it the weird contracts, need to pay to play with certain players or the difficulty in obtaining them in career mode.

Does anybody got any defensive tips to avoid being blown by?

You can use LT or RT and also the right stick in a number of ways what's the key this year around?

Are you online? As far as I've seen, being connected to Xbox Live, there's no way of avoiding autosave.

I'm not overly critical of 2K anything, I've been on since Sega owned the license way back on the Dreamcast and Allen Iverson was on the cover every year.

But wow. Hate this one. They put way too much time and effort into the cheesy presentation than anything else it seems. I'm assuming most of that presentation was Jay-Z's idea. No idea what qualifies him to do anything in the gaming business. (Although I do think he did a stunning job with the soundtrack and compared to 2K12's awful, awful list, this is stunning.)

I don't really like the new controls.. Nothing was broken in 2K11 or 12. Not sure i'm seeing the need to fix it here. And the virtual credit is awful. Should have kept skill points and just added real money contracts to buy those stupid clothes and upgrade pieces.

I've noticed this, too.  They are god-awful, and in my MyCareer, they traded JET, Bass, and Green, and got back DJ Augustin, Ian Mahinmi, and some other mediocre player.

On another note, it's nearly impossible to beat Miami, the Lakers, or Brooklyn.  Figures.

idk, whenever I sim the Celtics to get VCs they seem to win. In MyCareer, my Celtics are 30 and 6...

probably every MyCareer mode is set up differently, base on random probability of injuries and minutes (therefore trading certain players)

In mycareer, starting lineup consists of Rondo, Me, Pierce, Green and KG. Bench is Terry, Lee, and Wilcox. Bass and Milicic got traded

Bought it a couple weeks ago. I still can't figure out defense, but scoring is a breeze. I hate vc and the fact that I need an Internet connection to do half of the stuff on the game. Buying players for nba blacktop with the same currency you use in two major game modes is a major design flaw from a user perspective. But it's all about the money.
Practice? Whatchu talkin about practice?
