  1. Does it look any better than 2k21? I mean in fairness not much more they can do in graphics. But they better fix those horridly inaccurate Bulls red and Lakers yellow.
    Head scans look good. I'm more interested in the body types and that awful large head syndrome that they have been suffering for a couple of years now.
    Yeah...THAT Guy
    Dirk finally looks like himself!

    They actually got him scanned!

    If I recall he never went to get scanned in the past when he played. Which is why we always got The Bee Gees version of Dirk.

    Or the basketball sneakers that look so big that they could be boots!

    Hair and beard on Dirk look the best they've ever looked.

    The hair is the most impressive part of these screenshots, IMO. Not sure if there will be any physics to hair but it at least looks tangible in these screenshots.
    For people wondering if there are any improvements compared to 2k21 there isn't much to compare besides the faces scans for these specific players. When the screenshots are basically headshots I'm not sure what else people are expecting to see in terms of improvements.

    These players clearly look way improved and actually like themselves. Those saying it looks like 2K21, did you even play it or bother to compare? Lol.

    Exactly. All you have to do for Luka is look at the eyes and you can immediately see the difference and it's Dirk's face looks more authentic. The face scans look more realistic since start of next gen last year. Unless you are expecting 2k to change their art style, this is what you should expect. Now, definitely agree that body types and length could be better while also size proportionate to the court

    I see they brought back how old school jerseys use to look like with the bullet holes in Dirk jersey.
    It's actually in one and not the other. Nice touch
    I love the attention to detail when comparing the Mavs Dirk jersey to the Mavs Luka (Nike) jersey. You can see the difference in the material of the thread. I also notice the Nike logo on Luka's jersey is a silver type look. I wonder if this is a new change to all of the Nike NBA unis this next season.
    Textures, hair, and skin all look far better. Dirk, just wow, that is a great model. But the other 2, even though the models look more realistic they actually kind of look less like themselves to me but it also might be because they are being captured at weird moments in game. 
    Nah.
    I know a lot of us aren’t that high on 2K at the moment, but that’s in terms of gameplay.
    I’ll always give 2K credit for the fidelity they strive for.
    The skin, hair, jerseys and textures in general on player models look better, but “incrementally”. It’s not quite as big of a graphical leap like what we’ve seen from next-gen FIFA, but 2K will definitely get there eventually. Maybe by 2K24-25.
    Nice detail for the Nike check on Luka’s jersey for the 75th anniversary of the NBA, but I’m still a bit disappointed that these sports games haven’t taken that leap towards photo realism style graphics. Especially with ESBC’s graphics looking great. Hopefully by next year we’ll see a bigger difference between current and next gen for sports games.

    I hope they fixed those washed out colors on some of the jerseys from last year. And some of the old school courts were way too bright.

    This is literally what will make or prevent me from buying it. Not spending another dime on pink bulls jerseys and lemonade Lakers jerseys and ice colored hardwood.

    The jersey color issues have always been an odd one to me. I don't understand how some jerseys can be spot on while others are obviously off. On top of that how is it not a fairly easy fix? They can't go in and manually adjust the tone and hues? The red Bull's jerseys have been an on and off issue since the Xbox360/PS3 days. How is it that some years the red is accurate, or close to it, and other years it's not even red? I don't know for sure but there might even be teams where the color of their current jersey is off but the color of their classic jerseys are more accurate.
    Hopefully it's something they fix this year because I think it's a little thing that makes a big difference to the presentation. I remember when 2k14 released for PS4/XboxOne the jersey colors for a lot of teams were off but we're more accurate for 2k15. Maybe that will be the case this year.
    The color difference is noticeable when you expand the picture. I just need this game to play like basketball. Graphics were/are fine...improve the gameplay.

    The recent screenshot of the Wizards jersey made the red look more “pinkish” and washed out than the 2K21 comparison pic. I can’t imagine they would screw up reds even worse than they already are.

    Knowing the direction 2k is going right now I dont think so but man I really hope I am wrong
