Couldn't agree with you more! Why remove features from the game that were a hit? It's a question I've been asking myself for some time now. Still waiting to see fans in the crowd walking the staircases and easing to their designated seats! NBA2K has without a doubt taken a few steps however, I do believe there is a valid reason for them sacrificing a few things due to the release of next gen consoles.
In my opinion, 2K14 was essentially the foundation while 2K15 showed promise, leaving us to think NBA2K16 will be the best simulation basketball game we've all been anticipating. In addition, there was a tweet @IpodKingCarter posted a while back stating that the developers have been working on it for about two years now. He's a pretty credible source so let's just hope that is true.
Server functionality has always been an issue for the game but it has gotten better though. It seems as though the devs have discovered the reason for the disruptive lag on in both the Park and Jordan Rec Center, which is caused from the countless stragglers roaming while games are in progress. The new proposed instant matchmaking should will hopefully fix that problem.
But listen, I hear you 100% on the MyLeague functionality. It has the potential to be one of the strongest and most competitive modes in the game if they get it right this time. Hopefully we can eliminate all the time we spend keeping track of stats, trades, etc. on external sites with the amount of customization in 2K16. They definitely have to enhance the community website as well. It hasn't been the same since 2K12; just look http://www.nba2k.com/login still has the same gold tribal background smh. Idk, maybe an upgraded mobile app can help as well, giving players the option to make adjustments and interact with the league or multiple game modes when they're not home.
One thing for sure though homie, 2K is gonna continue to innovate. They do a good job of adding to the realism and improving the features based on our feedback. They definitely cannot afford to mess up anymore. It's like you said, "The old dog is lurking around the block again." I'm assuming you're referring to NBA Live 16 and they're dropping a solid product.
Nice post! By the way, how does the kid get into one of those leagues?

Great Blog!! the SpareRib quote cracked me up! i'm with you dude/the Leagues are dismal at the moment---every yr 2k howls about "we will be able to do this & that"/game ships and then we realize that those modes/additions do not work. The 2k servers have been 'cursed out' more times in my household than my teenage son...just wanted to say "i feel you Dog"...IceBerg
I did . This would be great!!
This is a familiar story, I liked sports by age 4 by watching with my pops. Then video games followed, then my love for sports grew even more. I started editing rosters before they had roster updates, used to do it for my friends and family, Gimmie your memory card and I got you. enjoyed your story

Bkluvsm3 that would be huge asset in Madden. I am a helmet buff and cleats as well. To have an equipment editor in this game would be epic. Great ideas people keep them coming.
BizDevConglomerate 2k does allow for draft rosters and the features if Madden would adopt those that would be great instead of this UT stuff.
Might not be important to many but a customizable euipment feature ..we should be able to customize visors,arm sleeves(assuming they add),Cleats !!! Let us create and customize cleats ala 2k shoe editor that will be dope

You're right, just out of respect for the consumer. As well as draft rosters for the next year. 2k nails it with their features.
Yes I agree Vizen. People talk about why Madden gets all the hate. Well before they put all the eggs into the egg kart of UT, we need full features of what takes place in the NFL. OTA, combines, these are all items that are needed oh yeah pro days.

Yeah you are right about that. They only had had one Madden that had this feature, which was 2002 when Texans joined the league you could rearrange the divisions. I don't care for UT such a waste. Thanks FIFA fan 90.

thesportsguru11 on August 9, 2015 at 07:34 PM.Of the teams on my list, Wake, Oregon St., Purdue and Illinois all have Nike unis. The first 3 all have big rebuilds looming and in progress. Another team you may want to look at is UConn. Not exactly Power 5 anymore, but they've been really bad the past few seasons and have a rather young team right now.
This link may help you out...click on each team you're interested in to see if they are Nike/Adidas/Other.
mattaponte on August 9, 2015 at 03:36 PM.I've been trying to find the worst(or one of them) Power 5 that has Nike Uniforms to start a dynasty with, and I was thinking about turning WASU into a SpreadOption offense under Coach Matt Aponte

You're welcome! There's a lot of great English non-league football out there, as well as lower U.S. leagues such as USL and NASL. I hope you guys get a chance to see some of it.
I'm not a huge fan of the name change though. Why is the top tier of English non-league football now called National League? Football Conference made way more sense.

I have really become a fan of the Premier League having watched last season on NBCSN. Still learning a lot and this primer was a big help. Looking forward to the new season starting this weekend.
Also enjoying MLS and becoming a soccer fan more and more everyday.
TCU will find a way to miss out. I'll go with Ohio State, Auburn, the winner of the Pac-12 and either Baylor or a second SEC school.
@bstvns72: Cool, glad I could help.
Turbo what track is that in your card pic?

Jadakiss88 on August 4, 2015 at 12:27 PM.From what I can tell most people that do the Dynasty Threads do them until they are either tired or completed all the years available (if they can make it that far before the new games come out). All in all I believe it depends on your audience.

thesportsguru11 on July 28, 2015 at 09:00 AM.Ark St. will be interesting. Obviously their two stars are in QB Knighten and RB Gordon, but the receiving corps is deep, and there are potential stars on that D. Good luck!

Mike7Vinas on July 27, 2015 at 09:00 PM.I'm doing an Arkansas State dynasty. I've been thinking for months but I finally decided.
hardly any. been mostly playing. and waiting for 2k16. think I'm going to do a spreadsheet for 2k16
are you updating anymore shots to your page
thesportsguru11 on July 27, 2015 at 03:46 PM.ULM is extremely appealing because that defense is just nasty for a Sun Belt school. The offense does need some work, but as long as you can hold them up for year 1, you can ride any success to the recruiting trail in year 2 to replace those stud defenders.
solmon on July 27, 2015 at 01:48 PM.Great overview! I'm pretty locked in to Western Michigan and Texas A&M as my dynasty teams this year, but you're making me think about an even greater challenge like ULM.

"Sounds to me like your expectations are FAR out of whack"
Sounds like you are satisfied with disappointing products

I like it. Mapping bounce pass to one button is a great idea. I remember the post a while ago where a fellow suggested mapping bounce and lob to y and b. Mike said he would take it into consideration. Good work unknown poster!!!

There would be no online football games. 2K online in basketball is the worst ever.
"If the current NBA and WWE 2K products are any indication it wouldn't meet our standards..."
Sounds to me like your expectations are FAR out of whack.
They can update APF 2K and just add in some type of franchise mode
