Re: The NBA 2K League Selects its Players, Predictable Outcry Ensues From Those Not S

Wait a minute.... People didn't see this coming?..... Come one now.

LOL at the questions being asked. The NFL is asking if you like "Men". And 2k is asking "Why do you want play in 2k league?". Where is the Russell Westbrook meme when you need it




But on a serious note.....

When you have a field so big and so many people so much time into their players. And then to get knocked out. You have to wonder what was going on in the background. And who was picking who. I think 2k should look into a G League type of situation. Just so players can get their name out there.

My prewife ask the other how does the NFL and NBA go about ranking a player out of high school and college. I couldn't really answer the question for her.

By the way I'd love to see these adavanced stats.

I'm still offering my services for training if anyone needs any in the tri state area.

at, you better copyright that. You might be on to something. Its part of what people were talking about when saying the combine should stay as a separate mode in the game. now to your point. a 2k G-league would be money. they already have the Gatorade support. WHY NOT. Gatorade would easily pay enough in ad dollars to have that league/build of the game named after them. Then if 2k is smart. whatever stats they think they need to determine who's good and who's not. they can use it in there to constantly track people. No teams though. you go in there solo just like the combine and play with randoms. The rule is. If you quit out X amt of times per month you can't go in again for a full month. if you quit out X amt of times in a year. you can't go in again at all. and that goes for disconnects. If you're disconnecting that much your connection aint ready.

The simnation guys have provided some great commentary about how the community is representing itself throughout this process.

Brian Mazique has been immensely insightful. His basic argument is that a lot of guys are too young to realise that presenting themselves as marketable to the corporates is half the battle, and some players are burning bridges.

Combine was crap. Aka don't have respect for the results or the stat chasers. If you played in it, you know what I mean.

what did they think would happen when you're pushing 18 to 24 year old dudes? lol. we all kinds of crazy at those ages. talking completely reckless online, etc. then you add this generation of 18 to 24's. and you have a mix of the usual crazy with "nobody can tell me anything cause I'm fly since I"m young." and its over. lol.

So if these guys are burning bridges like that. it means the guys that will make it will not be the best. because the some of the so called bests have probably already burned those bridges or will be looked at as not marketable.

Unless the league realizes who they are marketing 2k players too. it's not the same as your normal esports audience. not even close.

I don't think you really understand the effects of an actual sports league sponsoring and promoting an eSport.

2K fans are a subset of NBA fans. The "crowd" that gets alienated by presenting it's EMPLOYEES in a professional light is minuscule at best.

You might as well be calling Allen Iverson good for business when you make this post.

I usually don't.... But I totally agree with you!

If people think they can just burn a bridges and will get selected they have a whole new world to figure out. This is basically getting a job in real life. The best aren't always going to get picked.
