Re: my career in nba 2k14

There are some features like the D-league, Draft combine and Summer League that should never have been taken out in the first place. I know there were some people who complained that it took too long to get to the NBA in the older 2k games that had these features but why be in a hurry to get to the NBA anyway? We all know it can get pretty boring pretty fast once you're in the NBA. I've always enjoyed the experience or "road" to the NBA much more than actually getting there. But that's just me.

I feel the same way I feel the road to the nba should be tough should not be just one game and then you're done. We don't have a college. Game so it should be a longer process to make it to the nba. They need to add summer stuff we can do after every season as well and after 4 years you go to the Olympic Games.

I would love for it to come back, the way it works now is just silly. One game decides where you'll be getting drafted? C'mon now!

Re: my career in nba 2k14

This is what they need to do. When you create your player all you choose is the name, height, weight, year of birth, personality, how they look, and position. After that you do the combine which will determine what play-style you are based on how you do in each drill, then you play the rookie showcase. The combination on how well you do at the combine and the showcase will determine if you drafted number 1 or at all. Now you go to the summer league, which will determine if you make the team or not if you were a 2nd round pick or undrafted, but for a top ten to lottery pick this can determine if he becomes a day 1 starter. If you don't make the team you go to the d-league and try to impress any team to snatch you up, but for the few that make the team you start out as a bench warmer trying to impress coach to just give you a chance, but even one minute is hard to get.

love the idea. One problem though..... kids or adult having the attitude of a child. They may hate this idea specially those who do know the meaning of hard work

They just need to bring back the combine and summer league. They've already done the work, and getting on an NBA team was rewarding when it finally happened.

Then allow the mode to be configured for the number of combine/summer league events to go through.

I would have loved to play for my Summer League Champion Warriors.

Since its initial inception, the mode has shifted from a "rags to riches" style to more of a "pampered young star". I believe it's because most casual players didn't like the grind of doing all of the summer league and d league stuff. In 2k10, your player started at around a 40. While in 13, your player started at around 70 and getting endorsements/big minutes/etc shortly after being drafted.

I would like the option to work hard and make it to the NBA, or be a high school phenom like LeBron, Kobe, etc. It's always nice to have a choice on what type of player you want to be, an superstar rookie or a hard working second round pick that makes it big on determination.

I don't care to waste my time in a Summer league. You hardly have time for your NBA Career with all the other stuff in the game. Before you know it, the new NBA 2K is coming out.

Re: my career in nba 2k14

I also very much enjoyed the 3 game draft combine and Summer / D leagues and would like to see them come back. 2K11 was my first basketball video game and I was not a very good player, to say the least. So I ended up in the D leagues to improve my skills and learn how to play. I still remember the gratification of being called up to an NBA team and offered a contract. The contrast between being in the D leagues and stepping out into an NBA game was very cool. So, I think that adding back the more involved “Road to the Show” type aspect to the my-career game would be a good thing. It improves the character story (e.g., a player coming out of no-where to lead a team to a championship) that makes the game more fun.

This option also allows that if you suck in the NBA, they can send you down to the D Leagues, instead of just mindlessly increasing your minutes no matter how you play. It seems to me that this was in 2K11 and taken out of 2K12 / 13 where the emphasis is on you being the team’s star player regardless of how you play.
