Glad to hear that they fixed the standing vert alley oops. Hopefully they added more animations. DeAndre Jordan could barely dunk the ball. That's if you were lucky enough to not lob the ball into the 5th row.

Nice to hear, but it's just hot air if I average 30 boards a game AGAIN when player-locked, regardless of attributes and badges.

Theory and practice are different animals.

Bout time I heard something about the bigs. Can't wait to build mine this week.

tip rebounds will probably be cheesey

From the streams I barely saw any tip rebounds.

Any news about post turnarounds and post fades/hop shots? I'm hoping to punish small ball 4s with Dirk/LMA/AD, last year there wasn't really an ability to shoot over smaller defenders

nice vid, to bad they took out badges like post hook specialist, post hoperator, post stepback pro, fade ace and bank is open though.

Can someone sum up this video? I don't get why everyone is making videos...I mean, if you're using video material, okay...But this guy just shows the released screenshots of center players and talks to it. I don't want to listen to a 9 minute video to get information I could get in 2 minutes by reading a text...

I've had the same sentiment. But it seems like most of the people who were invited to see the game produce their content by video. So it's likely the best way for them to get this info to their following.

In a nutshell the big man aspect of the game have been improved especially tips and alleys.

I usually play as a center or power forward every year so im really glad they are trying to make playing as a bigman fun again.

It's always great that big men get some love.

I think that bigs like Gasol brothers were really mattered and made a great impact as they do irl for the first time ever in NBA 2K16, before that those kinda bigmen were useless i remember how awful their shooting and rebounding and ofcourse as defence presence bcs of all some 2k legacy issues you know, they were trash back in time..

I really want to make a post big man again . The glass cleaners look really cool this year too

I was a savage using pick and pops with bigs in prior 2Ks. And dribble hand offs, thats why I loved playin guard heavy dudes, they had no clue how to use a big man or how to stop one. I was a sav in 2K16, I just hope some of that can carry over into 17, and dudes dont all of a sudden learn how to use bigs.

Back to my career, did they mention if you'll have a chance to be drafted by your favourite team? What about traded on draft night to your favourite team?

I talked to the video guy he said height does matter and the post fades are really good, along with the seperation created with post stepbacks. He tested it out with Livingston. Add this to the physicalty and its really gonna be fun to do at KD with LMA or Draymond with Dirk

I doubt it, especially if (like my Rockets) your team didn't have a first-round pick this year.
