    Default NBA 2K17 Thread....yeah, it's that time of year again

    Who else is up for this?

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    I played the prelude....I still wish they fleshed out your mycareer pre-NBA options. Like let me play more than one season in college if I want to and let me use my points I acquire while I'm in college.

    Still feels completely pointless to pick a shooting based archetype early even with the hard caps they have in place to limit you later on, you just shoot like *** anyway early.

    I'm interested to get my hands on a lot of the stuff though. Sounds like some neat little features to help with immersion. I like that you can start your franchise in the summer of 16.

    You can take off the shooting caps. You just have to severely limit yourself in other areas.

    You can have straight 99s in every shooting category if you really, really want it.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I'm not even complaining about the caps. I'm just saying picking the sharpshooter archetype is basically pointless.

    I don't think it limits you any more than every other archetype.

    That may be true. They just all feel basically the same in the early game which could be better IMO.

    It's a free demo. I'm not sure what more you could expect from it.

    ?

    The archetypes are carrying into your main game.

    I'm not complaining about the Prelude. I'm complaining about how they setup the college portion of MyCareer which will also be present in the main game if you didn't play prelude.

    I guess my point was your ratings are going to be so low in prelude that whatever archetype you choose won't feel fully fleshed out.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I have 2K16 and have yet to play. I'm not picking up 2K17 this year. I need to see some serious changes/updates to change my mind.
    Offseason

    Likes:
    The entire draft. Love the picks of Turner, Young and trading for Christmas.
    Signing Glen Robinson III
    Trading for Budinger
    Signing Monta Ellis
    Signing Jordan Hill (not for the player, but for his deal)

    Dislkes:
    Re-signing Stuckey and Allen

    There are some pretty substantial things going on in MyGM and MyCareer IMO.

    When I moved, my new apartment has some wacky **** going on with the internet that gave me strict NAT ports or whatever. I spent about 15 hours ****ing with settings and **** over the course of a couple days and never could get to connect to the 2K servers (this is for 2K16). That game is completely ****ing useless if you can't connect to the servers. Pissed me off something fierce.

    Cannot stress enough how blown away I am by the gameplay improvements, specifically rebounding.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    So uh, thanks to expansion (the SuperSonics live again!), I was freed of CJ Miles, I was offered Monta Ellis for DeAndre Jordan (no brainer!), and uhm, I brought Kevin Durant to Indiana. Oh, and I brought Frank back.

    Best. 2k. Ever.

    The grind of getting my character to play like a lottery player is hard. It sucks that the late rounder on your team is higher ranked than you. They should just start the player at 70 or something. 55 hurts.

    I scanned my face in and at times the eyes bug out of my head. Other times it looks like my face is painted.

    The more light the better. Doesn't have to be natural light but it's gotta be bright.

    LOL at the look on that guys face.

    Is this an ingame screen capture of someone getting drafted by the Raptors?

    or

    Is this what is looks like in real life when someone finds out that they are drafted by the Raptors?
