Might have been him. His youtube channel is actually great been watching him for years, he is a true basketball fan. He usually gets the game a couple of days early, I don't know if 2K sends it to him or not.

Bigs can cover to much ground on defense(they are too fast)

Late contest on laups matter too much.

Random blocks doing pumpfakes.

Leaning shots for guys who have catch and shoot badge should be removed.

He usually plays on all star difficulty so I'am guessing it is All Star. He isn't the most hardcore 2K player.

Re: NBA 2K18 HD sim type gameplay

Observations from a hoops nut watching the first half:

* 3:10 — I like the quick trigger from Melo with the pull-up jumper from 12 feet. He had the space to put it up and he took it. It's the type of shot he takes in real life but the AI often passed up in 2K17.

* 3:25 — Rough rookie mistake by Ntilikina, helping off Kyrie from one pass away when Brown had already picked up his dribble at the elbow.

* 3:45 — Nice to see patience and ball fakes from Porzingis as he tries to make the post entry to Melo on the block.

* 5:25 — Here's Melo again going right after Jaylen Brown in the lane. I like seeing the AI — especially someone like Melo — trying to exploit these iso situations where they have an advantage.

* 6:48 — Great bit of verticality from O'Quinn, blocking the shot from the driver exploiting a closeout. Seeing plays like this one (among others in this video and others) makes me feel better about the interior defense in 2K18.

* 6:56 — In transition, Melo receives a pass above the break, recognizes he's open, and takes the opportunity to launch a three. Again, it's delightful to see it, after many years of 2K in which I felt AI stars didn't assert themselves enough on offense, leaving unrealistic usage rates and possession distributions.

* 8:36 — You can see the defensive rotations working as Baker leaves the nonthreatening Rozier in the opposite corner to check Tatum cutting through the lane.

* 10:30 — User-controlled Rozier finds himself isolating against Baker on the block with the shot clock running down and is in no position to really make anything happen. Baker, seemingly understanding Rozier's disadvantage, anticipates the drive and strips Rozier as he goes to shoot. Well done.

* The Celtics grab a bunch of offensive rebounds, especially early on. While my initial reaction bordered on concern, it seems to be more personnel-driven than anything. After all, the AI-controlled Knicks finished dead-last in the league last year in defensive rebounding percentage. Meanwhile, the Celtics appear to have no trouble boxing out on the defensive glass.

* 12:45 — Horford shouldn't hit this left-handed scoop shot against Hernangomez—and he doesn't.

* 13:47 — Here's Porzingis hitting a midrange jumper off the catch after having a few feet of space to take the shot. Again, nice to see an AI star taking the shot when it's there—just like the player would in real life.

* I feel like you can tell the difference between the interior defenders who will mount a strong challenge to drivers and those who won't. But I might be reading too much into it.

* 14:26 — Melo catches the ball at the elbow, posts up Hayward, faces up, jab steps, dribbles around, and pulls up for a jumper. So he's Melo.

Outside of the cpu vs cpu Rockets - Raptors video, this one is the best yet. Nice to see someone more patient play the game, but I was mostly focused on the cpu Knicks, and boy it does look good. Loved how agressive Melo was. He was getting the ball in his spots and launched without hesitation (same goes for Porzingis when Melo was out of the game). The player models look great too (especially noticed Horford and Melo, both looking much improved). The only downside for me (without analyzing and nitpicking each and every play) was that Baynes still doesn't have his beard.
