Let me start by saying I love the game. I just wish they would have had more of The Greatest Players The '93 Suns, '01 Kings, Tim Hardaway and Mourning Miami Heat, what about the Lakers and Trailblazers of 2000 or Reggie miller's Pacers I guess he was forgotten again First the Hall Of Fame Ballot now NBA 2k12. What about making the Greatest availiable in franchise mode as Draftable rookies or free agents or add a comeback mode.

My Player Mode needs fixing

I've trying to refrain from posting about this mode, but this is the ONLY mode I play.

I'm sick of the CPU trolling me in this game. By trolling I mean, jumping in front of clear passes and knocking the ball away or stealing it, Jumping up breaking up Alley-oop passes.

Your teammates lack of BBIQ, your sudden inability to make normal shots. Your teammates inability to make simple layups, or not taking shots with the clock winding down.

I'm sick of the CPU all of a sudden getting on fire and you not being able to make a shot at the same time. My player has above 80's in all shooting categories, yet I can shoot with him during games. I'm constantly going 5-21 or worse. I can't make passes when my guy is right next to his teammate. And forget about fast breaks, you have to run into the opposing player just to be able to make a pass. I was just beating the Bulls by 20+ points going into the 4th qtr. they out scored me (while my player was resting on the bench) 28-10 by the time he was subbed in. The Bulls won the game in a game that I was cruising to a win early in.

I also cannot stand how you have all stars on your team and yet they are dumb as Yinka Dare. On my Utah Jazz roster I have Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Adrew Bynum, Andre Igudola, Jordan Crawford, Zaza Pachulia and yet, these guys play dumb as rocks out there, passing up open shots, Bynum dribbling around the court or passing me the ball back.

I'm a high assist type of player, and I can barely get ANY assists on this game. Fouls are so random, and they never call traveling on the CPU, even when they do a spin move, an up and under and a step through all in succession, after a jump stop. This is getting ridiculous.

Also, why is it the CPU can bomb away from three, yet I can't shoot 3's to save my life?

I'm a 2K fan, have been since Dreamcast. I played NFL and NBA 2K from the beginning and never touched Live or Madden since. So this is not out of malice that I'm saying this. Fix This GAME!!!!!

Very Good

NOT 2k11...But Solid

I think 2k sports is the sports main stay, they dominate basketball. And if they had the football they would domniate that too. But this year they dropped the ball. The controls are too clunky, and I have the feeling the response of the players aren't as quick as my hands.

Instead of revamping the game engine, 2ksports should have just perfected 2k11. But it is still the best basketball sim out there.
