I've seen it too, very cool.

I don't consciously know that I use turbo while passing on a two on one break, but I'd assume so. Doesn't really result in fancy passes for me, but normal passes that get deflected.

Yeah, it doesn't happen every time you do it and players with a high tendency for that seems like the only one capable of executing it.

It annoys me, because - once again - I can't make my guy throw a bounce/chest/lob/whatever-needed-in-particular-situation pass. So if you still don't have 2K12 and haven't experienced that, I don't think you're in a position to be calling me a loser or whatever you'd like to.

Loser talk.
Nah, I'm just messing with you.

Played against Orlando last night and it felt great. They were killing me with their signature style of passing the ball down low and then getting it out to their shooters.
Also pretty cool, Dwight had two really nice alley oop plays, both in the halfcourt offense. Looked like out of their playbook, don't know if they have alley plays in it.

The Helicopter angle is really nice. I also had a nice call against the Bobcats: Tyrus Thomas tried to block the ball and somehow he swatted the ball from under the basket through the hoop resulting in a violation call, dunno what it said exactly, but I got the ball afterwards.

Is it possible to change My Player's name and last name somehow?
My players name is Anthony Shannon, but the commentators and PA just says my nickname.

Is it like 2K11 where plays are designed by position and not by player, and so teams like Toronto and formerly Utah with 3pt specialist Centers will have their big men on the perimeter a lot.

Every player has his own plays and takes them with him when he's traded to a different ball club.

Actually I haven't tested it yet, but they said that in one of the insights before the release.

Got to play game for first time last night. It's solid. Legendary mode is a nice touch but after unlocking teams I doubt I'll play it much aside from the odd game against friends. I think most of the gaming will go into Association & My Player, which I haven't had a chance to look at. Controls have changed quite a bit so will have to get use to them. Game is looking like an 8.5 maximum, maybe an 8.0 out of the box given My Player issues & no improvement to Association mode.

Maybe if you watch the whole game while your still on the bench it will show up?

- The changes to the defensive controls have basically meant I've gotten killed on dribble penetration. Took me three games to figure out how to slide quicker.
- The spin move is unguardable, and it's bad enough that the CPU is abusing it but when it's 1965 Jerry West...no. Just no.
- Does the sprint button do anything? I don't seem to go any quicker, and it's impossible to catch up with the player running the ball up the floor.
- Passing into the key is impossible. It gets picked off every single time, and if the off-ball defender isn't in a position to do so the on-ball defender will magically drop back and pick it off. Fast breaks are impossible, the ball gets intercepted every time unless someone's in position for an alley-oop.
- The 1960s visual presentation is all well and good, but it makes it very difficult, at times impossible, to see the PlayVision.
- I thought the commentary was going to be altered for the 1960s games as well?
- How do you trigger throwing the ball out in front on the dribble? I can't do it when I want to, but when there's someone standing right in front of me, it happens all by itself.
- Good to see we can finally sub between quarters. Racing to get a few subs sorted in the final few seconds was a pain.

Yeah... when I'm a 6'3 PG with 83 speed and can't catch up to Greg Oden going coast to coast, there must be something wrong here.

Press the sprint button while moving. If you were pressing it before, let it go for a split second and press again. It only works in the backcourt.

My Player is a hell of a lot better this year. It's good that if you get 'good shot defense', you can't get 'allow man to score'. That was probably my biggest issue with it last year.

On the other hand, I'm playing for the Knicks.
