    Linkin Park – One Step Closer

  • isom

    Check that, its not. Its definitely Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park but I googled the lyrics and there are no matches. So I’m guessing the song hasn’t been released yet.

    Damn! I can see already at least one huge mistake from 2K Sports – there was no 3-point line back in the 60’s and early 70’s.

    @ Jay-Pii

    There’s rumours on gaming forums that this game won’t include NBA rosters, and it will just be the greats. If the current rosters are included in the game the FAs will likely be in the FA pool (that’s what 2k usually does with unsigned FAs since they are still with the players association), and the unsigned rookies likely won’t even be in the game.

    We’ll have to sit tight and wait for an official announcement from 2k.

    @Butcher: “Damn! I can see already at least one huge mistake from 2K Sports – there was no 3-point line back in the 60′s and early 70′s.”

    2K has a deal with the CURRENT NBA, not the 70s NBA. If you want to get nit-picky then complain about the non-existent illegal defence, and not including the weird ball they used 3-4 years ago, and the shorter mid-90s 3-point line. And if you REALLY want to cry about something, the 3pt line didn’t exist until the late 70s so all the players before that era shouldn’t have a 3pt rating. and since they didn’t record blocks until the mid 70s, whenever Wilt or Russell get a block, it shouldn’t be counted on the boxscores… they should just put a hyphen in that stat column; whether you get 4 or 10 blocks with Wilt, the boxscore should be “-“. And just to be a child, let’s complain about not including a hand-check animation for ONLY the pre-2000 players; the newer generation shouldn’t have that animation.

    Now that I think of it, you’re right. This game is going to suck if they don’t get the eras right!!! Too many mistakes!!! *sarcasm*

    @Jay lol

    I don’t mind me a little Cartwright…but it seems they showed him as much as anyone else. Can’t wait for the release.

    Damn you didn’t have to go in on ole boy like that lol.

    I hate whiners too. Must be someone who didn’t play Lakers vs Celtics on the Genisis or Bulls vs Blazers or Double Dribble back in the day. Only those cats truely know how far sports video games have come.

    I remember playing Madden 94 where all-time bears #34 was basically an illegal player because all you had to do was run a sweep and continue to do spin moves anytime somebody tried to tackle you. hahahaha, man these games have come a long way though

    P.S. I hope @Ian doesn’t see that Hakeem dream shake vs Robinson lol. He’ll lose his mind over that
