All that is great, but if they have failed to remove or reduce suction I'll be highly disappointed.

Now that is awesome to hear saw in the other thread but its CRAZY to think this is actually possible now. Go 2K for making that happen!

People who will be updating the visual for the NBA today updates will be sick and tired of Gilbert Arenas if he does what he did last year. Changed sneakers like every other game.

Wow, it only took one post for someone to pull the old "That info is nice, but if (insert gameplay concern here) isn't fixed, it won't matter".

Anyways, these NBA Today additions sound interesting, if they're updated regularly. I wonder if the player models being dynamic now means they'll update hairstyles and things of that nature over the course of the season. I know that's a big deal for many around here!

LOL 2K knows there won't be an NBA season this year so they trolling us.

I think it does update hair, and will it still work even if there is a lockout?

I'm not sure how they could possibly update anything if there's no season!

Disappointing to think my Raptors will start the season with their typically off ratings, and with no season they won't see the improvements from DeMar, Bayless, Davis, etc.

It still early so it hasn't really hit me yet that there will be no basketball this year. Ugh.

Why does evryone think there will be no basketball. Sure the season could be cut down, but you can't think of real pull of the season till the month of the deadline or so.

no more generic kicks? I'm guessing that the only players that get the visual update will be the big stars....I hope that's not the case

Even if the season started in October their ratings would be based on last year's performance, so there's no change.

Didnt the NFL say that they wouldnt bet on a season as well? I doubt there will be a full season, but I am still hoping that there will be a 50 game season.

That's in regards to the added animation announcement. It's great that the ball will seem less attached to players, let's just hope players are less attached to players as well. As far as the graphical updates that's something that's really innovative.

1000 new animations!!! Thats great, & now they update shoes, hairstyles, courts, and players models my fav!!! This also means that we wont have to download mods for your pc so thats great.
