    Just checked and it still hasn’t been fixed. At this point I doubt they’ll fix it... ridiculous...

    That's embarrassing how can you put new jersey's in the game put out a huge update and can't even fix a jersey that wasn't broken to begin with and it's something as simple as putting the outline around the numbers I don't care how small the team is it's obvious that they are not listening.

    FYI game is on sale on PSN for under $5 for PS+ subscribers.* Not sure the sale price without PS+.

    Seriously? Wow. Even I'll pick it up for less than the price of a fast food meal.
    Looks like $12 without Plus.
    They tuned success of contested inside shots but couldn’t increase mid-range attempt tendency?? Bummer.
    Also minute allocation edits don’t save, which sucks because they never update the rotations in the roster updates

    Makes me sad. I love all the changes and I appreciate the effort they are putting in but I keep coming back and trying and I just can’t play this game with the AI tendencies.  Every time I see a new patch I’m holding my breath praying they fixed the cpu driving constantly and each time I’m disappointed. It must be a tough fix or I truly believe it would have been fixed by now. Again though I do like seeing the commitment to this game and hopefully 19 will suit me better,
    After deeper review, they update Lebron and Kyries Beards, and have Lonzo an updated haircut/facial hair.
    Also, all the players now have the correct portraits next to them in the roster editing menu. Except for the newly traded guys. Looks much better because some players used to have really old pictures or none at all

    They need to give us ability to edit compression shirt and Leg compression sleeves tie those into their own separate columns in edit player section ...I should be able to add and remove compression shirts it’s 2018 the other game has that option so I know it’s possible

    This is unacceptable that they still haven’t updated cavs uniforms it’s a major issue just like players not looking like their real life counterparts it takes away from the realism of game and is a misrepresentation of NBA And Licenses they agreed to upheld ..I understand some players don’t want to come in to get Scan into the game that I do understand but with all the tech that’s out now a days there should be other options rosters are still missing players ie mike James ,Darius miller ,Theis, okafor, etc

    This is awesome. Finally picked it up. How can anyone pass on $4.50? Sweet.
    How do you guys edit sliders. I bought the game today and i like it. There are some things live does better than 2k. But there are some things that could be made even better with sliders. I tried ones from the sliders section and i feel that they are obsolete, especially after today's patch. I tried to play with them and it's just too difficult to score, and i played the one which is on default sliders and i feel inside scoring should be tuned that is lowered
    Just picked it up for the $ 4.50 price tag! I never really got into the 2K play style as it's just too complicated to me. I'm hoping this is a more simplistic approach like it was back in the PS2-PS3 days!

    They just have no attention to detail. The accessories on the Cavs city uniforms are still incorrect, they should all be white, not gray.. it’s sad because I enjoy playing this game but all the little things it fails to do just drives me insane

    I'm glad you guys can finally see how much better of an basketball experience you'll receive that what NBA 2K has given people this year!! On the other hand, it's sad that fans like this are the ones who's killing sports gaming to begin with... I would give EA or VC $60 a year just to help with development.. It's a sad day in our community but I'll say this one last thing, NBA LIVE 18 Is far better than NBA 2K18 gameplay and authenticity wise on many levels for those still on the fence about spending five funky dollars... This update just put the nail in the coffin for 2K!!!
    Just looking back at this thread and it's just ridiculous how many people can say anything about NBA LIVE when it's clear that you've never had time to appreciate the title... For anyone to complain about a uniform error which is probably something they can't fix due to bugging shows how in experience in basketball video game you really are... The game is coming around to meet standards set by people that don't even play the sport!! How could you be so petty and recognize that they're building up to something much more rather than jumping on a forum to cry about baby stuff... If I was mod, I'd ban people like this.. It's negative and it does nothing for the game or the community!! When they fix the damn jersey, it's fixed!! It's their business!! SMH...

    I enjoy the game im just upset that the Cavs black statement Jersey has been missing the gold outline around the numbers for months now and it was perfectly fine in the beginning. To me that's not a minor uniform error that is a major uniform error that completely changes the look of the uniform and should not have gone this long without a fix Im enjoying NBA live this year as well as 2k they are both solid games.

    Joe Johnson Papa G and Malachi Richardson are still on the Kings.
    They traded Malachi so they didn't even get all the trades in the roster update, pretty pitiful they can't even get all the trades in the trade deadline roster update

    I'm "killing sports gaming" because I'm not a huge basketball video game fan and thus didn't want to pay full price (or anything close to full price) for a basketball game? Okay. Anyways, to this point the game is fun. I really dig the presentation. I'm also a big fan of the Madden style progression with the Slow, Normal, Quick, and Superstar system. Def worth the $4.50.

    Game feels really smooth playing the one . Not sure if they updated anything like dribbling or animation speed.

    That was a big reason why I never picked up the game yet. The one mode for
    me during the demo was very laggy/choppy. I couldn’t even play the outdoor court.

    I understand you like Live & it's a good game, I have it. Are you telling me some uniforms, a court, & some facial hair puts the "nail in coffin" for 2K? This "battle" between the two games was over a long time ago. I like Live a lot & I think Live 19 will improve upon what they did this year but let's not get crazy.

    Ok now this made me lol. All EA had to do was update the players looks and it's a wrap for 2k. Who knew...
    I had Live since the release but I'm lazy to switch the disk to play. Well that and how ps4 having no buttons to eject really irks me somehow.
    It's nice to see that the game is still being supported.

    You have your opinion and I have mine... It's as simple as that!! The update has placed tangibility, animation sequences, and the physics as a whole in a different category of any basketball game ever!!! EVER!! NBA 2K18 never got any of these key things down since the original because those fans out there like YOU only look for COLORS, ARM PIT HAIR, and pay2win modes... EA continues to innovate and you'll notice it IF you know how to play the SPORT!! NBA 2K holds your hand, gives you animations and what not to MAKE YOU BELIEVE you can actually hoop... I'm just saying... NBA LIVE 18 is a much better basketball game now after that update and 2K hasn't even started yet!! DONT 't use " sim " as an excuse!! It's slow...Real slow compared to Live...
    Seems like every couple of months we get a Live/EA super fan here trying to start a game war. If you feel that strongly about Lives superiority, try posting about NBA LIVE...it's 'the best basketball game out' and your stuck on another game....
