I finally got around to seeing the podcast, and there were many great points made! You and Dee really work well together with these topics. I brought up Daniels' inclusion in MyTEAM because it's important to remind people that the All-Time teams are advertised as the best collection of players for that franchise. While you're correct that Odom and Bosh are more known, I don't agree with leaving some of these legends out of the all-time teams. Even outside of Mel Daniels, there's still a bunch of other legends that haven't been brought back including Connie Hawkins (but Devin Booker is already considered an All-Time Suns player?), Dolph Schayes (A new CF was made for him in 2K20, so why didn't they put him on the Sixers?), Walt Bellamy, etc.

Thanks for tuning in! Glad you enjoyed the show.

I agree, certain players shouldn't be left off the All-Time teams when they're in the game and available. I'd say that 2K bothered to make the effort with Odom and Bosh because they're more well-known to younger gamers in particular, but it shouldn't stop there.

Thanks for the feedback!

I think the inclusion of guys like Booker on the all-time teams is more of a case of catering to the younger demographic, honestly. Same with LeBron being on the all-time Lakers after only playing one season with them (and the Lakers had not won the title yet before they included him... and still)

As I stated in my roster thread on Twitter, the classic teams/all time teams are incredibly low priority for them, and I provided examples that proved that. Its more of a "HEY, LOOK AT ALL THIS CONTENT WE HAVE!, WE LOVE RETRO NBA", and that is on the surface and via marketing, but when you actually look at the big picture (all the copy/paste jobs, the lack of including certain important players, all the rush jobs, etc), it tells an entirely different story.

NLSC Podcast #350: What's My Age Again?

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

We're celebrating our 50th episode as a duo, which leads us to reflect on some famous number 50s in NBA history. After that, it's down to business with a discussion of the latest news surrounding NBA 2K21 Next Gen. From server issues to a widespread ban, there's a lot to catch up on, and we have a lot to say. We also talk about stat padding in online games, and how it's led to what we feel is an unappealing style of play. Recent events also prompt us to discuss ageism in basketball gaming, and troubling practices in the modding community. This week's mailbag topics cover recycled faces in NBA 2K, and the idea of petitioning 2K to make certain changes.

Tune in here!

What's your take on this week's conversation? Sound off with your thoughts right here in the Forum! Additionally, feel free to hit us up with any feedback on the episode, as well as mailbag questions and topic suggestions for future episodes. The show also comes out on our YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe for future episodes and other video content.

NLSC Podcast #351: Lockdown Defenders

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

Now that Derek is an official member of the NLSC Team, we look ahead to some plans for future content. There's a lot of positivity there, but as we delve into this week, there's a need to explore the negative aspects of basketball games as well. We discuss the desire some gamers have to disengage, distinguishing between taking a healthy break from negative conversations, and shutting down constructive criticism. In this week's mailbag, we talk about the pain of losing features, modes, options, and mechanics that we loved, and answer a question about our playcalling habits on the virtual hardwood.

Tune in here!
