Paul George is 6'10. I've been tweeting that information to the "2K Insider" for over a month now...is it really that hard to change that information?
# 2 renotiongson @ 11/10/12 07:53 AM
C'mon ronnie2k, talk to the team for us, stop giving us half-baked updates. It's already a week in the season and we still dont have a decent update.
# 3 eaterofworlds888 @ 11/10/12 07:55 AM
Glad to see Teletovic in but still a underwhelming update. Glad I don't have to restart Association though.
# 4 rvn1 @ 11/10/12 07:56 AM
anyone noticed any ratings boast for any players
# 5 JerzeyReign @ 11/10/12 08:03 AM
Ok, you know, I tried to give them a pass on the last update but this is crazy that all of these guys are still missing.

I think we need someone to explain to the community what the hold up is. Maybe it takes a few to gather ratings on players? Give us some reasoning behind these lackluster updates.

Whatever... this is disappointing. And just like the other thread, I'll tweet it out hoping they see it. Attention to detail, or lack there of, is killing the support of a very good game.
# 6 SavoyPrime @ 11/10/12 08:06 AM
Just to ask, can players with non-guaranteed contracts even be added to the game?
# 7 SiRRreal @ 11/10/12 08:07 AM
The 2kInsider needs the Kobe death stare! This is ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!
# 8 seanbarkley @ 11/10/12 08:11 AM

Now it's too late, but I'll show you all my gratitude next october.

Enough is enough man. This is the last year they laugh in my face.
# 9 Goffs @ 11/10/12 08:14 AM
Why can't they put the detail to the rosters like they do with the court updates?

So basically they added 1 or 2 players and nothing else? what a load of *$#(%. Honestly why even come out with a update...just pick a date in the near future when 2k knows they get all this done. I don't see the point of these mini updates, is it suppose to make the game a bit more exciting each time or what?? I don't get it.
# 13 imdrbbro @ 11/10/12 08:31 AM

# 14 TorreyG @ 11/10/12 08:35 AM

Hmmm, I have to say that I'm actually going to give 2K a hand here. At least they went as far as to add Teletovic and Shved in this update, but I'm still kinda confused if you took the time to add them how much more time would it have taken to include Singler with them? Still no sign of Claver or Freeland in the Portland roster and really when you look at it there are probably a handful of players that were on opening night rosters still nowhere to be found, 2K could put forth the extra effort to correct all of that in their next update just as a way to show their loyal customers over the years that they mean what they say when they announce a roster update is coming.
# 18 XenoZograscope @ 11/10/12 08:48 AM
Another year with the same pathetic roster updates there is just no excuse for this at all. That's 2K for ya.

As expected , the players added don't have a portrait OR a cyberface... They are just player models created with the in game CAP system.

WEAK job as always by the 2k outsider

Flynn has never fully recovered to his prior form following hip surgery.
