Episode #181 (October 22nd, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #181 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss the latest NBA 2K17 news, provide a round-up of some recent retro modding releases, and reflect on some more success in 2K Pro-Am.

On this week's show...

  • A European eSports tournament for NBA 2K17 is tipping off next weekend. We're not eligible ourselves, and we're also more casual in our approach to online gaming besides, but it's cool to see nevertheless.
  • The Nintendo Switch (codenamed Nintendo NX) has been revealed, and it seems it will have much stronger third party support, including a port of NBA 2K17. Will we be picking it up?
  • As our NBA 2K17 modding community continues to do some great work, we also want to recognise the efforts several users have been making in keeping older games up to date. We quickly round up some of the recent releases for older NBA Live and NBA 2K titles.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: a couple of really fun sessions of 2K Pro-Am with more clutch wins, and a lengthy winning streak in MyCAREER.
  • Some interesting rumours are making the rounds about LaMarcus Aldridge possibly being traded by the San Antonio Spurs.
  • Elton Brand has reportedly changed his mind about playing one more season, and will be calling it a career. One of us wishes he could've spent more time in Chicago.
  • We wrap up Episode #181 of the NLSC Podcast with some quick thoughts on the epic finale of the 2016 WNBA Finals between the Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx.

Episode #182 (October 28th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #182 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and myself as we discuss opportunities for NBA Live 17, some more exciting victories in 2K Pro-Am, the start of the 2017 NBA season, and more.

On this week's show...

  • It appears as though advertising is starting to appear after the third quarter in NBA 2K17. We discuss the controversial practice of in-game advertising in AAA titles.
  • Once again, we touch on the problems with an "always online" approach to modes such as MyCAREER, after a recent PSN outage made it impossible to play.
  • With some of the dissatisfaction gamers have with NBA 2K17 and the way 2K has handled things with VC and so forth, has the door been left open for NBA Live 17?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: more clutch wins for the NLSC 2K Pro-Am squad, a blossoming rivalry, a trip to MyPARK, and the Walk-On experience.
  • The 2017 NBA season has tipped off! We talk about the first couple of days which saw a triple-double from LeBron James, a huge win for the San Antonio Spurs, big numbers from Anthony Davis, and the official debut of Joel Embiid.

Episode #183 (November 4th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #183 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and myself as we talk about the upcoming NBA 2K17 patch, some huge performances in 2K Pro-Am, and a couple of NBA stories from the past week.

On this week's show...

  • We tip off Episode #183 of the NLSC Podcast with some community announcements, including additions to the Contributors group in the Forum, and new content in the Wiki.
  • NBA 2K17 hasn't received a roster update since mid-October, owing to a problem caused by the most recent patch. An upcoming title update is expected to fix that issue, as well as problems with disconnections in 2K Pro-Am, but what about the timeout glitch?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: the best three game stretch of 2K Pro-Am that any of us are likely to have, a quick session of LIVE Pro-Am, and the latest results from our respective MyCAREER games.
  • We wrap things up with some NBA talk, including Ray Allen's retirement, hot starts for Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, and the highly anticipated Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game.

Episode #184 (November 12th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #184 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss Patch 1.05 for NBA 2K17, offer up some more thoughts on what might be happening with NBA Live 17, and talk about a couple of other topics from the past week.

On this week's show...

  • We've started the ball rolling on our NBA 2K18 Wishlist, and encourage everyone to get involved in posting some constructive feedback for the development team.
  • Off the top of our heads, what are some of the main issues we'd like to see addressed in NBA 2K18?
  • Patch 1.05 has been released for NBA 2K17, addressing several bugs and tuning a few elements of the game. Some fixes are working better than others, but at least the timeout glitch is gone from 2K Pro-Am.
  • New rosters are also coming through for NBA 2K17 again, and a recent update has added Steve Nash back to the 2003 Mavericks and 2005 Suns.
  • What do we make of the radio silence from EA Sports regarding NBA Live 17? What do we think is going to happen with the game, and what are our expectations?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: tough times and bratty kids in 2K Pro-Am, and a milestone achievement in MyCAREER.
  • We wrap up Episode #184 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA talk, including Stephen Curry's record-breaking thirteen three-pointers in a game, and Dwyane Wade's first game against the Heat.

Episode #185 (November 18th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #185 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and myself as we discuss recent modding releases, issues with YouTubers getting banned in NBA 2K17, and a few other topics of interest from the past week.

On this week's show...

  • We tip off Episode #185 of the NLSC Podcast with a round-up of the latest releases from our talented NBA 2K17 modding community. Some excellent retro mods have been created so far!
  • It seems that Patch 1.06 for NBA 2K17 is in the pipeline. What do we expect it to fix? What do we want it to fix?
  • Dime Magazine recently posted a countdown of the ten funniest glitches in NBA 2K. Which ones have we experienced ourselves?
  • There's been a lot of dissatisfaction with 2K Sports recently, as several YouTubers have been banned for unclear Terms of Service violations. We discuss 2K's handling of the situation.
  • What are some of our favourite jerseys that aren't available in NBA 2K17?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: a reminder that career modes have come a long way since NBA 2K10, and the most recent 2K Pro-Am games for the NLSC THRILLHO squad.
  • We wrap things up with a couple of NBA topics, namely Tim Duncan's impending jersey retirement, and a record for Aussie NBA players.

Episode #186 (November 26th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #186 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss Patch 1.06 for NBA 2K17, the upcoming Park After Dark event in MyPARK, a tidbit of NBA Live 17 news, and more.

On this week's show...

  • 2K is presenting the "Park After Dark" event in MyPARK this weekend, with Snoop Dogg making an in-game appearance as DJ Snoopadelic. It's not really our thing, but it does sound kind of fun for MyPARK players.
  • NBA 2KVR has been announced. Might some of the technology be adapted for use in the main game in future years?
  • NBA 2K17 has received Patch 1.06. Although some issues have been resolved, unfortunately it seems that some new bugs have also arisen, and not everyone is happy with the tweaked gameplay.
  • We're starting to hear promising bits and pieces about NBA Live 17 from developers on social media. Senior Producer Mike Mahar also had a few things to say about the game in a recent chat to FOX 13 News in Tampa Bay.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: An enjoyably successful run in 2K Pro-Am, two more quadruple-doubles in MyCAREER, and a surprising lack of loyalty.
  • We wrap up Episode #186 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA chatter, including the Detroit Pistons' impending move to a new arena, Zach LaVine's incredible 360 dunk from the foul line, and Kevin Love's big first quarter against the Blazers.

Episode #187 (December 2nd, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #187 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and myself as we react to the fallout of Park After Dark, offer up further thoughts on the recent NBA 2K17 patches, discuss NBA Live's social media presence, and catch up on Our Week in Basketball Gaming.

On this week's show...

  • Park After Dark wasn't quite as successful as 2K Sports and MyPARK enthusiasts were hoping it would be, with many prominent YouTubers harshly criticising it. We react to the fallout, and offer up a couple of thoughts on the event.
  • There's been some discontent in our community regarding the recent patches for NBA 2K17. Are the patches messing up the game more than they're fixing and improving it?
  • Do NBA Live's social media accounts offer any indication as to what's happening with NBA Live 17? What will happen with NBA Live Mobile as we get closer to the game's console comeback?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: Struggles for NLSC THRILLO, success in MyCAREER, and the best trade in the history of franchise modes in MyLEAGUE.
  • We wrap up Episode #187 of the NLSC Podcast with some good news about Isaiah Austin.

Episode #188 (December 10th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #188 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss Patch 1.07 for NBA 2K17, drama in the NBA 2K YouTube community, a tidbit about NBA Live 17, and our basketball gaming experiences from the past week.

On this week's show...

  • In response to a question on Twitter, EA Sports has reiterated that NBA Live 17 will be released in the first quarter of 2017, and that more news will be released closer to the game coming out.
  • Patch 1.07 has come through for NBA 2K17, and seems to primarily be an update for the upcoming eSports tournaments. Still, we wonder why it took 24 hours to post three whole patch notes.
  • We react to some drama in the NBA 2K YouTube community, and compare it to some of the issues we've seen in our modding community over the years.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: Some more enjoyable wins for NLSC THRILLHO in 2K Pro-Am, an epic quadruple-double in MyCAREER, and chasing records.
  • We wrap up Episode #188 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA discussion, including Klay Thompson's incredible 60 points in 29 minutes, and Dwyane Wade's performance with the Chicago Bulls so far.

Episode #189 (December 17th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #189 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! News is slowing down with the holiday season upon us, but Arcane and I still have a few things to talk about this week, including another exciting win in 2K Pro-Am, further thoughts on Patch 1.07 for NBA 2K17, and the passing of a broadcasting legend.

On this week's show...

  • Patch 1.07 is out now for the PC and Xbox One versions of NBA 2K17. Once again, we can't help but remark on the difference in size between the three patches, despite them all containing the same content and fixes.
  • The next eSports tournament for NBA 2K17 has officially been announced, with another $250,000 up for grabs. We're not able to take part, but that might actually be for the best.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: a clutch victory with unexpected heroics in 2K Pro-Am, and dusting off a couple of classics.
  • The NBA and Players Union have come to terms on a new agreement, thankfully avoiding a lockout at the end of the season (or so it would seem).
  • We wrap up Episode #189 of the NLSC Podcast with a discussion of the late Craig Sager, and some of the beautiful tributes from players, coaches, and broadcasters in the wake of his passing.

Episode #190 (December 22nd, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #190 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! It's our 2016 Year in Review episode, as we'll be taking a short break before resuming our digital broadcasting duties in early January. Thank you to everyone who has tuned into the NLSC Podcast throughout the year; we greatly appreciate the support!

On this week's show...

  • We tip things off by talking about our Basketball Game of the Year. Or, in other words, which game we've enjoyed the most out of the three that we've been playing regularly at some point over the past twelve months.
  • There's been some interesting and surprising news and events in 2016, both in basketball gaming and the real NBA. We recap some of the major stories, including NBA Live 17's delay, the mixture of controversy and exciting details during the NBA 2K17 preview season, the Cleveland Cavaliers' championship, the retirement of several big names, and more.
  • Back in June, we had a stressful time here at the NLSC when it looked like we might have to scale back or even shut down operations after our former host informed us that they were closing up shop. Fortunately, we found a new home and expect to be around for a while yet. Thank you to everyone who has donated to the hosting fund, or continues to support the site in other ways!
  • As 2016 draws to a close, we look ahead to 2017. What do we want to achieve next year? What are some of the things that we have planned? We have a few ideas, and hope that you'll stick around for the ride!

Episode #191 (January 13th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Kenny

Episode #191 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! We're tipping off a new year of podcasts with some speculation on the future of NBA Live, a recap of what's been happening with NLSC THRILLHO these past few weeks, and a couple of other topics.

On this week's show...

  • Early 2017 should be an eventful time for basketball gaming, with NBA Live 17 currently slated for release in Q1, and 2K Sports holding eSports tournaments for NBA 2K17.
  • When do we think we'll start receiving some NBA Live 17 news? Are we standing by our previous predictions?
  • All things considered, is it likely that EA Sports will end up skipping the scheduled Q1 release and simply go ahead with NBA Live 18 later this year?
  • What frustrates us the most about NBA Live and NBA 2K?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: Win #100, another epic overtime win, and some big numbers in 2K Pro-Am. Also, some MyTEAM tales and tips.
  • We wrap up Episode #191 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA talk. Russell Westbrook is still averaging a triple-double, Kyle Korver has been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the 2017 All-Star Weekend looms.

Episode #192 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss the announcement that NBA 2K18 will be available on the Nintendo Switch, the latest rumours surrounding the next NBA Live release, and a couple of other news items from the past week.

  • Visual Concepts has announced that NBA 2K18 will be available on the Nintendo Switch. We discuss the Switch's viability as a primary platform for basketball gaming.
  • Something is in the pipeline as far as the next NBA Live game is concerned. Following on from last week's speculation, we talk about the as yet unannounced demo, "The Drive to NBA Live", and what it could mean for the future of the NBA Live series.
  • Millertime2325 has released an excellent mod for the Super Nintendo version of NBA Jam Tournament Edition, NBA Jam 2K17. Play an old favourite with 2017 season rosters!
  • We originally decide not to talk about Our Week in Basketball Gaming - it's been a bit of a tough one - but then we do anyway. NLSC THRILLHO reaches the Elite tier (then experiences some tough losses), and our MyCAREER games roll on.
  • Episode #192 of the NLSC Podcast wraps up with some fantastic news about the future of sleeved jerseys, now that Nike will be taking over.

Episode #193 (February 3rd, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #193 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! We're back after taking last week off due to Australia Day, and we have some interesting topics to discuss, including the future of NBA Live, a new patch for NBA 2K17, All-Star Weekend 2017, and more.

On this week's show...

  • It appears as though The Drive to NBA Live has been cancelled, and EA Sports will instead be focusing on developing a fully featured NBA Live 18, coming in the Fall. We give our thoughts on the situation.
  • A new patch has come through for NBA 2K17, addressing a few key problems gamers have been having. Aside from that, have we noticed any remarkable differences?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: an update on our MyCAREER games, including some All-Star Weekend disappointment, and the latest highs and lows of NLSC THRILLHO in 2K Pro-Am.
  • The 2017 All-Stars have been announced. Unfortunately for Zaza Pachulia, the league stepped in and squashed his All-Star hopes.
  • Dysfunction and drama are the common themes in the NBA right now, from the Chicago Bulls' struggles to a war of words between LeBron James and Charles Barkley.

Episode #194 (February 11th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #194 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss this week's news and events, including the newly announced NBA 2K eSports league, problems in 2K Pro-Am, and an unfortunate incident involving Charles Oakley.

On this week's show...

  • 2K Sports is partnering with the NBA for an official eSports league. It's a cool concept, but will it ultimately benefit a majority of the userbase?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: We've had very little success getting matched up for games in 2K Pro-Am following Patch 1.10, though we did hit up MyPARK and a couple of Walk-On games. Also, Playoff success in MyCAREER, and the early stages of building a powerful MyTEAM squad.
  • New York Knicks legend Charles Oakley was thrown out of Madison Square Garden in controversial fashion. Seems most observers are on Oak's side, and we find it hard to disagree there.

Episode #195 (February 17th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #195 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and I as we discuss the latest controversy with Locker Codes in NBA 2K17, recap a tough week in 2K Pro-Am, and look ahead to the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend.

On this week's show...

  • NBA 2K17 celebrated Valentine's Day with a Locker Code for a Kevin Love MyTEAM card, but the limited quantity didn't exactly leave gamers swooning. We react to the controversy, and discuss what 2K could have done instead.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: NLSC THRILLHO enjoyed an exciting overtime win in 2K Pro-Am, but also weathered some tough, tough losses. Also, a milestone performance in MyCAREER, and expanding collections in MyTEAM.
  • A couple more significant trades have taken place, and it sounds as though a few more are in the works. We give our thoughts on the Toronto Raptors acquiring Serge Ibaka, and the Denver Nuggets trading away Jusuf Nurkic.
  • With the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend just about ready to get underway, we offer up our predictions for all of the events.
  • We wrap up Episode #195 of the NLSC Podcast with a quick discussion of Ben Simmons. Will he make his debut this season, or shut it down until next year?

Episode #196 (March 4th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #196 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! We're back on the air after skipping last week, as we wanted to wait until the NBA trade deadline had passed so that we could discuss any deals that went down. There's quite a few other things to talk about as we catch up this week, including suggestions to improve 2K Pro-Am, a busy week in basketball gaming, and the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend.

On this week's show...

  • A solid, well-thought out list of suggestions for improving 2K Pro-Am was posted over at Operation Sports. It's certainly a topic that interests us, so we take a look at the ideas, and throw out a few suggestions of our own.
  • Visual Concepts recently did something very cool with Make-A-Wish, though some unfortunate wording was used to promote it on Twitter.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: We played a little bit of everything this week! Thoughts on Park After Dark #3, Kenny's impressions of NBA Live 16, comparisons between LIVE Pro-Am and 2K Pro-Am, and updates on what we've been doing in MyCAREER and MyTEAM.
  • The 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend came, disappointed, and went. You might think we're turning into grumpy (grumpier?) old men, but a lot of people seem to share our sentiments.
  • As it turned out, the biggest trade happened during the All-Star Game, and not at the trade deadline.
  • We wrap up Episode #196 of the NLSC Podcast with a quick discussion of recent NBA news and results, including injuries and the Playoff push.

I think KP may be listening to the show, also definitely agree with a lot from the pro-am list but the ones that stand out for me that really take away the enjoyment of the game are losing the ball off the body for no reason, the two player mocapped animation that drags you along with the play, the chase down blocks when your a good 10 foot ahead of the nearest defender but yet you go up to dunk in super slowmo so you get blocked... I feel like theses same issues have being hear for years now which is why I am close to trading in 2k17 and just waiting to see what Live 18 has to offer.

This move right here.

It's where I think NBA 2K17 faulters some, big guys in todays game (And back in the day, look at Olajuwon and Robinson), could do these moves. They could face up and make a quick first step, or even sometimes beat the other guy off the dribble. Players in NBA 2k17 (big guys AND some guards and Forwards) are made so slow movement wise, the moves are SO SLOW, they don't have a prayer of getting by the defender.

Great move by KP.

On the 2k rosters sure bigs are slow and clumpy but yet head to the Park or pro-am and you have loads of maxed out 7,3 centers that you just can't stay in front of.

That's definitely a delicate balancing act that needs to be figured out: allowing some bigs to have better handles, while avoiding MyPLAYER bigs being too cheesy in that regard.

Episode #197 (March 10th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #197 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss a couple of issues regarding the NBA 2K17 roster updates, our recent experience in online modes and what we might be looking to play instead, and a handful of NBA topics.

On this week's show...

  • Regular roster updates continue to come through for NBA 2K17. However, on top of a couple of other issues, it appears that the injury-free rosters aren't actually injury-free.
  • On a more positive note, starting a new MyCAREER will use the most recent official roster. Starting over at 55 Overall is still painful, though.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: We've tried MyPARK and 2K Pro-Am, but online play is losing its appeal. MyCAREER, MyTEAM, and MyLEAGUE still hold intrigue however, and we get an idea for a fun challenge.
  • Moving on to the real NBA, our fellow Aussie Andrew Bogut has suffered another unlucky break; literally. Will he end up in the NBL?
  • Adam Silver has indicated that he'd like to make the All-Star Game competitive again. We're encouraged to hear it!
  • As the 2017 regular season enters its final stages, who are the frontrunners for the MVP?
  • We wrap up Episode #197 of the NLSC Podcast with a milestone by Dirk Nowitzki.

Episode #198 (March 25th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Kenny

Episode #198 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Kenny and I as we reflect on NBA 2K17 six months in, catch up on what we've been playing recently, and discuss a couple of topics related to the real NBA.

On this week's show...

  • NBA 2K17 has been out for around six months now. After many, many hours playing it, what are our favourite and least favourite aspects of the game?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: 2K Pro-Am and MyPARK have lost their appeal for us. On the bright side, we've been having more fun with MyLEAGUE, MyTEAM, and MyCAREER.
  • The practice of resting players in nationally televised games has prompted some harsh remarks from all-time greats. We offer up our thoughts on the matter, and some of the backlash.
  • Larry Sanders has returned to the NBA. Will he be able to pick up where he left off a couple of years ago?

Episode #199 (April 1st, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #199 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and I as we get together to talk about some recent NBA Live 18 news, reflect on our past in week in basketball gaming, and react to a huge performance by Devin Booker.

On this week's show...

  • NBA Live 18 will be on display and playable at EA Play 2017. Are we optimistic, and what kind of details are we expecting to come out of the event?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: a return to 2K Pro-Am and MyPARK in NBA 2K17 yields unexpectedly enjoyable results. Also, strange player movement in MyCAREER, MyTEAM challenges, and a new MyLEAGUE game.
  • An itch to mod an old favourite has resulted in the release of an updated 1996 season roster for NBA Live 2004.
  • The Phoenix Suns' Devin Booker turned heads and set records when he scored 70 points against the Boston Celtics. We react to the performance, and some of the things that have been said about it.

Episode #200 (April 14th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane & Kenny

Episode #200 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and myself as we celebrate another milestone with a jumbo size episode in which we catch up on all the latest news, including Patch 1.12 for NBA 2K17, the announcement of NBA Playgrounds, and the end of the 2017 NBA season. Thank you for your continued support of the NLSC Podcast!

On this week's show...

  • Patch 1.12 has been pushed through for NBA 2K17. We've played some online and offline games with the patch, and have a few impressions to share.
  • Various tuning updates have tweaked the shooting in NBA 2K17 as of late. Have we noticed any major differences?
  • We're all looking forward to the newly announced NBA Playgrounds from Saber Interactive.
  • Since it's Episode #200, we take some time to reflect on the previous 199 shows, and our time in the NLSC community.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has included a shocking loss in MyCAREER, new rewards in MyTEAM, and connection issues in 2K Pro-Am and MyPARK.
  • Derrick Rose has had yet another season ended early by a knee injury. What's next for the former MVP?
  • Pau Gasol, Joe Johnson, and Paul Pierce - all arguably underrated stars in their prime - reached noteworthy scoring milestones before the season ended.
  • Bold predictions return, as we give our picks for the regular season award winners, and the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

Episode #201 (April 20th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Kenny

Episode #201 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Kenny and I as we speculate on NBA Live 18, react to a couple of leaks, and talk about the first few games of the 2017 NBA Playoffs. And as always, we discuss Our Week in Basketball Gaming!

On this week's show...

  • We highly recommend checking out Operation Sports' interview with the NBA 2K team, for an insight into the development of the games, what it's like to work in the industry, and how to give the best constructive feedback. And to see JaoSming and Leftos, of course.
  • A couple of off-screen photos of NBA Live 18 have emerged. There's not much to be gleaned from such blurry images, but there are a couple of points of interest worth talking about.
  • Do we think the cover player for NBA Live 18 will be revealed before EA Play?
  • Will (and should) EA Sports begin promoting NBA Live 18 during the Playoffs, or perhaps the NBA Finals?
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has included some experimenting with "Start Today" in MyLEAGUE, a failed attempt at a second MyCAREER, and an expanding MyTEAM collection. A few ideas for future games are also discussed.
  • We wrap up Episode #201 of the NLSC Podcast with some discussion of the first few games of the 2017 NBA Playoffs, which has seen a couple of surprising results.

Episode #202 (April 28th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Kenny

Episode #202 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Kenny and I as we talk about the NBA Playgrounds roster reveal, Hassan Whiteside's dissatisfaction with his ratings in NBA 2K17, insights into MyTEAM pack odds, and the latest action from the 2017 NBA Playoffs. And as always, we recap our past week in basketball gaming!

On this week's show...

  • The roster for NBA Playgrounds has been revealed. Some of the inclusions and omissions were rather surprising, but we're still looking forward to the game.
  • Hassan Whiteside isn't exactly satisfied with his ratings in NBA 2K17, and he wasn't shy about letting his feelings be known on Twitter. We wonder whether other players have felt similarly insulted over the years.
  • A post over on Reddit has shed some interesting insights into pack odds in MyTEAM. We once again give our thoughts on the fairness of packs in NBA 2K17.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has featured disappointment over the lack of a 2K TV screenshot in MyCAREER, new MyCOURT digs in the woods, and MyTEAM challenges. A discussion of Freestyle2: Street Basketball also leads us to reminisce about the days when the market was awash with hoops titles.
  • We wrap up Episode #202 of the NLSC Podcast with a recap of the recent action from the 2017 Playoffs, as well as our thoughts on three point guards: Rajon Rondo, Damian Lillard, and Chris Paul.

I don't play myteam but I get the card values but shouldn't they make a special deck for legends like Jordan, Joel Anthony and LaVar Ball that you can only use for one game that guarantees victory??

2K won't sign Lavar Ball, because he would want BBB to be a part of it.

Our loss... sigh.

They don't have a chance. It would mean that if you played Jordan with him one on one in blacktop, he would have to crush him 21-1.... 2k can't make that happen.

Lavar is far to strong, big, and tough for 2K to make him right. Strength rating only goes up to 99, it would need to go up to 299 in order to be realistic.

Also, it couldn't be NBA 2K18. It'd have to be Lonzo Ball's NBA 2K18, with him as the cover player, maxed out 99 Overall (but not quite as good as LaVar, of course), and Michael Jordan would have to be removed.

Episode #203 (May 5th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Kenny

Episode #203 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Kenny and I are your hosts this week, and our conversation covers the latest NBA Playgrounds news, Beluba's plans for NBA 2K's shooting mechanics, NBA Live 18's direction, and the latest from the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

On this week's show...

  • NBA Playgrounds has a confirmed release date of May 9th. Polygon's preview provided us with some new info on the game, and we're still very much looking forward to it.
  • Mike Wang (aka Beluba) posted an insight into his plans for shooting mechanics in future NBA 2K games, specifically his desire to wean gamers off automatic makes on Green releases. We give our thoughts on the matter.
  • Following on from this week's Monday Tip-Off article, we discuss whether it would be a good idea for NBA Live 18 to take a more traditional approach, in order to capitalise on the dissatisfaction some gamers have with certain aspects of NBA 2K's direction.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming includes a head-to-head showdown in MyTEAM, expanding collections, and a refreshingly enjoyable run in both 2K Pro-Am and MyPARK.
  • The 2017 NBA Playoffs roll on into the second round. LeBron reaches a milestone, prompting thoughts from the (alleged) resident bitter insecure hater. Also, Paul Pierce's retirement, Tony Parker's injury, Isaiah Thomas' big night, and some predictions.
  • We wrap up Episode #203 of the NLSC Podcast with some quick thoughts on the new BIG3 league, which recently completed its draft.

I was thinking about a player like Chris Paul who was a legendary player that just didn't for one reason or another have the help around him and which passed player you could compare him too and I know this player got his team to the finals and also won the mvp award but what about Allen Iverson, that team wouldn't of made the playoffs without him.

I think that's fair. Tracy McGrady is another example. Great player, but just didn't have the teams to make a legitimate run in the Playoffs.

Episode #204 (May 12th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #204 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition cover reveal, give our initial impressions of NBA Playgrounds, and talk about the burnout and cynicism we sometimes feel when it comes to giving constructive feedback.

On this week's show...

  • Shaquille O'Neal has been revealed as the cover player for the Legend Edition of NBA 2K18. We also know the release date and the pre-order bonuses. Does all that VC suggest another tough grind this year?
  • Charles Barkley has revealed what it will take for him to appear in NBA 2K18.
  • NBA Playgrounds has been released, and we have some initial impressions to share. One of us is a little more positive than the other.
  • Referring back to a Monday Tip-Off article from a few weeks ago, we discuss the burnout and cynicism that can arise after years of talking about improvements to basketball video games, and compiling feedback for developers.
  • It pains us to say it as long-time NBA fans, but we're just not feeling this year's Playoffs.
  • We wrap up Episode #204 of the NLSC Podcast with Our Week in Basketball Gaming, which included another brief but enjoyable session of 2K Pro-Am in NBA 2K17.

Hosts: Andrew & Kenny

Episode #205 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Kenny and I as we share some more thoughts on NBA Playgrounds, reflect on a touching moment in our modding community, and catch up on the latest results from the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

On this week's show...

  • A new member in our Forum who's going through a difficult time made a mod request, which was quickly fulfilled. We've got a good thing going.
  • Following on from last week's Podcast and Sunday Substitute article, we provide some updated impressions of NBA Playgrounds. One of us is a little more positive this time around!
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has not only consisted of some games of NBA Playgrounds, but also a fun run of 2K Pro-Am victories, and successful MyTEAM challenges.
  • We wrap up Episode #205 of the NLSC Podcast with some thoughts on the 2017 NBA Playoffs, which have reached the Conference Finals. Zaza Pachulia not surprisingly gets a mention.

Episode #206 (May 27th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #206 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! We're a little late this week due to some technical difficulties, but everything has been sorted out, so Arcane and I are coming at you with our thoughts on the latest news in basketball gaming, some tales from our basketball gaming experiences over the past week, and a few thoughts on the forthcoming 2017 NBA Finals.

On this week's show...

  • We've received our first proper glimpse at NBA Live 18, including a bunch of screenshots and some cinematic gameplay clips. We reflect on some of the community's reactions, and provide our own take.
  • The PC versions of NBA 2K14 and NBA 2K15 are no longer available on Steam, which is potentially bad news for completionists and retro basketball gamers.
  • NBA Playgrounds has received a big patch on PC and PlayStation 4, containing several tweaks and additions demonstrating that Saber Interactive are paying close attention to gamer feedback.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming includes a long-awaited cutscene in MyCAREER, and another decent session of 2K Pro-Am.
  • We wrap up Episode #206 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA talk. Topics include LeBron James' new milestone, predictions for the 2017 NBA Finals, and Chris Bosh's future.

Episode #207 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss the NBA 2K18 cover reveal, our hopes and expectations for NBA Live 18 following the first trailer, Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals, and a couple of other topics.

On this week's show...

  • Kyrie Irving has been revealed as the cover player for NBA 2K18. We give our thoughts on the choice, and reflect on some past cover players.

Episode #208 (June 9th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew, Arcane, & Kenny

Episode #208 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and I for a discussion of all the recent NBA Live 18 news, previews, and rumours, a look ahead to EA Play, thoughts on the latest action from the 2017 NBA Finals, and more.

On this week's show...

  • A listing on Game Informer led to rumours of a PC release for NBA Live 18, which unfortunately isn't going to happen. Nevertheless, an eventual return to the PC platform is something we'd like to see for NBA Live.
  • New gameplay footage, screenshots, and a couple of tidbits of information about NBA Live 18 have come out of a recent event in New York. We're liking what we're seeing, and intrigued by what we've read.
  • What kind of information and previews are we hoping to see at EA Play? We talk a little about our expectations for the event.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has seen further progress in NBA Playgrounds, a dubious record almost set in 2K Pro-Am, and the triumphant return of Kiki Vandeweghe in MyTEAM.
  • We wrap up Episode #208 of the NLSC Podcast with a few thoughts on the NBA Finals. Even if we're not exactly hating the results so far, it's hardly a contender for Best Finals Ever...in our humble opinion, anyway. At least Game 3 was close, right?

Episode #209 (June 15th, 2017)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #209 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we give our thoughts on all the NBA Live 18 news coming out of EA Play, discuss a couple of other basketball gaming tidbits from the past week, and share a few final thoughts on the 2017 NBA season.

On this week's show...

  • Coming out of EA Play 2017, we now know about The One, the new single player career mode in NBA Live 18. From the basic concept to the approach to Playstyles, it's definitely sounding good.
  • A lot of the hands-on impressions of NBA Live 18 have also been very positive, which has us feeling quite optimistic. A couple of other details are also potentially quite promising.
  • Opponents quitting on you in online games of NBA 2K? 2K Support has some...interesting advice.
  • The latest patch for NBA Playgrounds has continued the trend of adding more content and making some very welcome fixes and adjustments.
  • We answer a listener question: would we like to see a story-driven career mode in NBA Live, similar to what we've seen in MyCAREER?
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming included our most enjoyable 2K Pro-Am game in a while...after some more frustrating contests, of course.
  • With the Golden State Warriors' victory in Game 5, the 2017 NBA Finals are over...of course, the MJ vs. LeBron debate is not.
  • We wrap up Episode #209 of the NLSC Podcast with a short discussion of Jerry West's new role with the Los Angeles Clippers, and the announcement regarding 3-on-3 basketball at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
