the last one is very similar to one of the stories in NBA 07

Ahead of its time in all facets except gameplay. The gameplay was really bad.

That's cool. I actually picked up NBA 08 on PS2 a while back, I've been meaning to check out its story and do a feature on it. Might have to see if I can track down a couple of the other games in the series for cheap, might be interesting to look back on.

I might grind through them and record the cutscenes one of these days. The stories are really the only saving grace of the series. Still don't know if "Big W" 's son ever wakes up from the coma.

March 3rd: 5 Tips to Endure a Long MyCAREER Season

I'm almost at the end of the regular season in my rookie campaign in NBA 2K17's MyCAREER. As much fun as I've had so far, it's definitely been a grind, especially since I prefer to play twelve minute quarters. Even with shorter quarter lengths, 82 games is quite a marathon, and it's difficult not to get impatient once you're past the All-Star break, and the postseason is looming on the horizon. Of course, if you're battling to qualify for the Playoffs, each game is going to have more meaning, and that should hold your interest. However, if you've already clinched a Playoff berth, a little bit of boredom might start to set in.

Fortunately, there are a few ideas that can make tedious stretches in MyCAREER a bit more fun. Some of these suggestions arguably apply to MyLEAGUE and MyGM as well, but I personally find that boredom during the regular season is more of a problem in MyCAREER, since you're locked to a single player, and you obviously don't have all the team management functions to change things up. With that being said, here are five ideas that have helped break up the boredom for me, and will hopefully help some of you make it through the regular season grind, whether you're playing MyCAREER or another mode.

Re: The Friday Five: 5 Roster Oddities in Basketball Games

March 17th: 5 Roster Oddities in Basketball Games

Whether you're updating a basketball video game or simply playing it, the accuracy of the roster is probably going to be of great importance to you. Sometimes, that authenticity is limited or compromised by factors such as the roster cut-off date, lockouts, and a lack of licensing rights for specific players. Official roster updates have ultimately counteracted those first two issues, and unofficial updates can provide workarounds for the third. Furthermore, through consistent official updates and user customisation, questionable ratings don't have to remain a problem for long, either.

Of course, even if certain issues can be easily resolved by official or unofficial means, basketball games have presented some unusual oddities in their default rosters over the years. Sometimes, unusual real life circumstances lead to inaccuracies, or create other interesting situations. In other cases, the game's roster management functionality itself is cumbersome, or otherwise strange. Whatever the case may be, there have been a number of roster oddities in basketball video games over the years, and today I'm talking about what I feel are five of the most interesting and noteworthy examples.

March 24th: 5 Players Who Appeared in More Video Games than NBA Games

Simply getting drafted by an NBA team, or making it onto a Summer League or training camp roster, is an achievement in and of itself. It's further than a lot of players will make it in their basketball careers, and for those who do get that far, it's the first step towards realising their dream of playing in the NBA. Of course, there aren't enough roster spots available for everyone, and a lot of players will end up getting cut before the regular season begins. Some may find their way back onto an NBA roster and finally debut at a later date, while many others will not.

However, while some players never get the opportunity to suit up and play in a real NBA game, they may still see themselves make it to the big time on the virtual hardwood. The default rosters in NBA videos game must be locked at a certain cut-off date, which often results in missing players out of the box, but can also ensure that players on the bubble actually end up being included. Should such a player never make it back to the league, they'll end up appearing in more NBA video games than real life NBA games. Here are five players who did just that, whom you may or may not remember.

I think Isaiah Austin was added to a Roster update as a "Free Agent" in NBA 2K17.

Yeah he was added at one point. There's definitely been more than five, but there's always the possibility I'll do another article with another five.
