Learn More About Building Your Squad in NBA Live 19

NBA Live 19 will give you an opportunity to build your own squad, as you recruit NBA players and Legends to take down the competition.

“What we’re doing in 19 is, allowing you to build your squad,” said Santos. “Not only can you compete in The League and The Streets, but whether or not you’re in the streets, you’ll also be able to go around the world now as we extend the courts out to different global courts where you’ll be able to recruit players that you play against and compete with, then form your squad as you go from game-to-game, court-to-court, and country-to-country.”

A lot of what the team has tried to mimic is the style that many role-playing games have set forth in terms of creating an online party-style mode. This is a mode where, not only can you play against friends, but you can actively try to one-up and compete for bragging rights. While the majority of global courts are yet to be released, this seems to give a nostalgic feel similar to the classic EA Sports’ NBA Street franchise.

“I worked on NBA Street back in the day, and I played all those games growing up so there’s definitely an aspect of streetball that is just core to any basketball fan,” Santos began. “It’s where you grow up playing – in a driveway, on a streetball court, on a playground – and so, we started a few years ago, introducing these authentic venues and these authentic streetball courts or Pro-Am leagues into the game because we wanted to bring that core love for the game and experience for the game into NBA LIVE.”

  1. Really like the sound of that. I play mostly the one street ball on 18 and I thought multiple times how I'd like to pick my squad I play with. I just hope we get a large choice of historic and recent players.

    Meh. Give us real Pro-Am. The ability to customize courts, shoes, jerseys, ect.

    One of my biggest hopes in this is to customize courts and jerseys, would especially fit with building your squad.

    So I'm hoping we can control the other street ballers and not just "player locked" to our created player.

    I think you can be on court coach. Like Live 18, where you can ask for the ball pr command CPU to shoot.
    Is it a mode that we can control all of our 5 streetball players? I dont want to be player locked in this mode like it is in the one mode. I want to ball with all my players i choose.

    No, hopefully not.
    I’ve been reading write ups and watching YouTube Game Changers and I come to believe that the Build Your Squad will be an OFFLINE mode.
    If I play Pro Am type of game on international courts, let’s say Iverson is available to team up. If he accepts and be part of my team, does that mean I’ll fight another guy with “their Iverson” on their team too - ONLINE?
    I think this crew is OFFLINE mode. Online 3v3 and 5v5 is still the same as 18. My opinion.

    Nah it’s online . EA said they are going for an “online party style mode .”
    Yea, give us 5 on 5 with full quarters w/ our myplayers and 5 on 5 with real nba teams, and I'm all set.
    I'm kind of salty I paid out 60 for Live and they dropped the price so quickly. I knew it was an investment to put 60 on Live, but when see how fast the price fell, it feels like you got duped.
    I haven't played Live in a minute, maybe I should fire it up. If they give us 'crews', too like they had in 09, that would be perfect.
