    No Sonics unis for the all time Thunder/Sonic's team, no buy for me. Sorry 2k but it's the little things that count.

    Imagine not buying a game because of one uniform.

    The game menus look uuuuuugly.... looks like something out of a PS2 game. Come on 2K! you can do better!
    Really ?people dying to watch some gameplay and you talking about menus.
    So after the game is out you will be watching menus not playing this fantastic game ?
    OS gonna OS i suppose.

    The willingness to win is kryptonite to strategy. No one slows down to actually form a strategy, commit to a style of play conducive to playing basketball. This is what pains me about devs watching numbers or who's playing what mode or using a feature. It is the detriment to us all.

    When it comes to watching gameplay, I try to filter out the style of play and gather what I can- like the move chaining. I know most people arent going to play a slow placed game, especially in the environment they were in....so I dont even bother getting worked up about it...

    I don't need to imagine, it's happening. Maybe I'll pick it up when xbox has a sale on it for like $30 but I am no longer buying it day one. The concept of these teams is cool and all but when you disgrace one of the most historic franchises in the NBA and insult their fans by only giving them the option to have many of their great players like Jack Sikma only wearing a Thunder Jersey is blasphemy

    That's fair if you were planning to play at least 80% of the time with that team I guess. I don't see why anyone would do that (MyLeague & MyCareer seem to be the go-to modes) but hey, to each his own !
    The play is so erratic that it's hard to get a read on the improvement on defense. Also, the way that User was playing with the Laker greats made me want to claws my eyes out of their sockets.

    I thought it was a bit if an exaggeration....but it's his observation, nothing wrong with that...he's big on presentation...
    Everyone has got their thing...
    As long as we all respect each other's 'thing' we are good...
    Like don't tell me you don't think the Park and MyTEAM should exist...but the trim being wrong on the bottom of some shorts is the end of the world

    You could always move the all time Sonics players to the 96 Sonics and make that your all time squad in your game.
    It'll take a little time but it'll at least get those guys in the right colors. Just a thought.
    I'm surprised they didn't have the Sonics jerseys selectable though. Are you entirely sure?

    Do we know for sure the uniform isn't in or are you just assuming because we havent seen them yet?
    If that's seriously not in than Sonics fans need to hit up Ronnie's twitter right now and get those jerseys patched in. It's really no excuse for them not to be able to have at least 2 Sonics Home and away jerseys and two Thunder home and away jerseys.
    Hell they could have just made it so each player wears the jersey that they wore during their career. I mean it's not like its impossible considering All Star team up has all 10 players on the court wearing their respectable jerseys and i think it's the same thing in Blacktop mode (correct me if I'm wrong).
    Side note, but with the 06-07 Cavs being 97 Overall and the 05-06 Heat being 83 Overall, it seems that there is a very serious problem with Team Ratings.
    Not diggin that celebration animation off the 3pt'er where they turn around before seeing it go in. I've seen Joe Dumars and Ray Allen do it now...two guys who would not do that. I also saw Jordan do some weird celebration after a 3 in another vid which he would never/has never done. I hope these celebrations and their frequency is editable.

    If you want to ever buy a NBA game with those unis you're going to have to talk to the NBA...good luck with that, nothing to do with 2K.
    Game play looks really good, can't wait to get my hands on it

    Doesn't the regular OKC team have Sonics Jerseys as alts?
    Only partway through the video but a lot of the dribble moves looked sharper to me than they have in other videos. I'm going to chalk that up to user proficiency.
    On the other side, I didn't love seeing Jerry West trying to levitate for a two-hand alley-oop. Similarly, I didn't like seeing Isiah Thomas try to throw down off one foot right off the tip a few days ago either. On the other hand, I wouldn't at all mind seeing a handful of more routine and old school dunk packages. I know Elgin Baylor could rise up, but his dunk style was still generic, relatively speaking. I'd dig seeing him pull those dunks off instead of him looking like Dwyane Wade out there. Easy to edit, just would be cooler if we didn't have to.

    I know they technically share history, but I wonder if there's something else going on there, where the Thunder organization chooses not to include Sonics gear in their pallet due to the extremely rough transition from Seattle to OKC. Just a hunch, but I imagine 2K is just honoring what they've been asked or told to do.

    I don't mind the menus, but there have been times where they've really jacked with my experience (cough, 2K10 & 2K13) so I understand.

    The animation eko speaks of is just about 1:1 identical to Stephen Curry. It's not the Nick Young or Gilbert Arenas walk-away-with-arms-outstretched (though that'd make no sense for Joe Dumars to do either). Instead, it's the shoot-then-spin-around-and-stare-at-the-crowd routine that Curry has unleashed on multiple occasions.
    In my most humblest of opinions, this celebration should be reserved for Stephen Curry and Stephen Curry only. It's a built-in signature celebration, something to make using Curry feel special. To take it and make it a general post-triple celebration not only dulls the effect of seeing it used by Curry but it also serves as an immediate immersion breaker when guys like Ray Allen and Joe Dumars pull it off.
    If the goal here is to sharpen the game up as much as possible, it 100 percent needs to be addressed by either limiting its occurrence or only allowing Stephen Curry to use it. I'm not comforted by the fact I've seen it twice in the 10 minutes of game time I've watched.

    The swim move into the cross KD did was nice! Really like that fade he did as well, looked signature.

    I LOVE how slow and cumbersome the big men are when thry get stuck guarding a oerimeter player (durant vs olajawon). Should be a blow by everytime.
    Last year big men could defend the perimeter like an elite defending guard
    Looking at all these videos, it still seems 2K doesn't fully realize just how skinny most NBA players' legs are.
    Sure, some look good. But way too many are still too thick.

    huh? Olajuwon? On the Lakers? where?
    Liked how for the most part the paint was packed.
    Kobe's sequence @2:40 was gorgeous.
    Late releases and contested releases should look different to normal releases in certain situations. IRL, when Kobe released the ball late he would raise his shins far behind him.

    There was another gameplay video of the All time Bulls vs that horrible monster known as sonic thunder. The video showed the guy scrolling thru the jerseys....no Sonics.
    Also I don't think the NBA has anything to do with the Thunder\sonics jerseys. Go back and look at NBA Live they gave the Thunder the Sonic's jerseys. I know for sure 10 had them, I'd have to check to see if there were any more recent ones. So if EA could use them why couldn't 2K. Frankly the Thunder should have their own all time team and the Sonic's should have their's.
    100% agreed the sonics should have their own all time team. Payton and Kemp in Thunder jerseys is very bad taste.
    No one should be making a decision not to buy this game over it though.

    I'm pretty sure the NBA wouldn't let them do that if they wanted. Just like the NFL won't let the Baltimore Ravens wear the Cleveland Browns jerseys.
    I've gotta say, I take back what I said about the game looking like NBA 2K17.5. These gameplay videos that have been coming out lately have looked amazing! Damn I'm excited for 2K18!

    The game menus look uuuuuugly.... looks like something out of a PS2 game. Come on 2K you can do better!

    It does look, ugly. I prefer it clean. It is all messed up. I wonder who thought this menu looked good... SMH.

    This simply isn't true. There is no 1979 banner hanging in OKC. No retired jerseys of any sonics players and Seattle still holds the rights to all sonics apparel.
    Not to mention 2K already recognizes the sonics with the 1996 team. There would be no legal issue here.
    There's a lot of confusion here because from what I've gathered, the situation is not completely fluid.
    Seattle and Oklahoma City technically have a shared history at the moment. The current Thunder franchise is, quite literally, the Seattle SuperSonics. However, in the event of NBA basketball returning to Seattle, the new SuperSonics would re-gain their history in full. I suppose it'd be similar to how the expansion Charlotte Bobcats re-branded into the Hornets then acquired the original Charlotte Hornets history from New Orleans (though unlike the Charlotte situation, Seattle already has that agreement in place. The new Hornets agreed to those terms only after they chose to re-brand).
    In the meantime, Oklahoma City does theoretically have a partial right to the Sonics' history. However, perhaps accurately taking the pulse of the public, they've opted to distance themselves from it. They share the history but they opt not to publicly acknowledge it, hence the lack of throwbacks, championship banner, or even the golden patch that championship-winning franchises don.
    Edit: I think that USA Today article is trying to clumsily explain why the Thunder and All-Time Thunder don't have Sonics options, not whether a standalone retro Sonics team can exist.
    This thread went off the rails, under a lake, down a waterfall and then through a time space wormhole to an alternate dimension.
    How'd y'all like the gameplay?

    Sounds like your describing the finale of a certain TV show LMAO
    The old school Sonics jerseys from the late 70's and 80's have been always been a rarity for some reason. They made an appearance in 2K12's Game of the Year edition. It is frustrating because they used these jerseys for several years. Dale Ellis, Jack Sikma, and Xavier McDaniel just don't look right in anything else. In fact, I will go on record and say the old school Sonic jerseys are the jersey equivalent of missing Chuck and Reggie.

    Well,I'm happy that we can at least make our own Sonics teams in myLeague, plus we get an alt this year too!
    I'm wondering now if the All time Nets only have the Brooklyn jerseys. I'm going to flip a table if they do

    All you have to do is put this team in My League and rebrand the jerseys and stadium floor and voila... problem solved.
    Might even just import someone else's design that will likely already be there.

    Oh well that is a given, there were some great ones up last year. I'm just hoping 2k did it to save me a bit of time is all. Just would be a little disappointing Dr j's ABA and/OR the NJ jerseys aren't there.

    The reason that stuff only matters so much is because rebranding is available.
    It's been there for 2 years and we've seen all kinds of things made. This is not one of those things to get up in arms about because you can easily fix it and forget it was ever any other way.

    I imagine their selection will remain. The Thunder, in contrast, never had Sonics jersey options so it's not as if they were pulled for 2K18.

    So after the game is out you will be watching menus not playing this fantastic game ?

    As a roster editor, I'm surprised you don't pay more attention to menus. As someone who constantly edited rosters since launch, the poor performance of the 2k17 menus literally took hours away, hours I could have instead spent as more time playing the game with my new roster.
    Or realized the amount of issues that were not caught, like how on the team select screen, OFF actually meant defense rank, and DEF meant offense rank.
    But to the video, I'm always impressed with the evolution we see from the AI from year to year. Though to me, it does look like the graphics on the players themselves are starting to decline. The lighting on the skin is just not good, it looks more cartoonish than years past to me, like everyone is drawn on the screen with a crayon. Hopefully it'll seem different once I can see it up close on my TV.
