Good read. Might be the first article to truly focus on basketball instead of the gimmicks.

Re: NBA 2K20 Gameplay Deep Dive

Great read. Totally agree on the pass/catch mechanism.


Another one that I hate but I'm not sure is the footwork on catches off of a down screen. Last year the catcher would catch and turn the wrong way giving the defender a chance to recover before you have a chance to get a shot off.


Basically that old Rip Hamilton/JJ Reddick coming off a down-screen and pulling a jumper lead to guys planting with their outside foot instead of the inside, and pivoting away from the basket

Re: NBA 2K20 Gameplay Deep Dive

Great write up.

While I'm enjoying the gameplay, Offensive rebounding is definitely a pain point. Seem's like every other year we revert back to it being more of a jumping contest than guys getting bodies on each other. It's rough this year.

Basketball is not some binary game. Just because someone misses an easy laypup while someone else makes a more difficult one, doesn't mean that something is wrong. They have to include the human element into the game in order for it to be realistic. If every easy layup was made and every difficult layup missed, then something would be wrong!

Re: NBA 2K20 Gameplay Deep Dive

This reads like an extremely brief "deep dive"? Perhaps by someone that mostly only plays My Player centred stuff? Ugh....

Also, did the writer ever watch James Harden last year? Pretttttty damn good Defense and in the top 3 in steals in the league lol.. He is actually one of the best post defenders in the league for his size and also damn good at keeping a man in front of him..Check the advanced metrics if you want to confirm...

Cheap shots are easy to take though i guess. I expect a bit more from an OS article after being around a while.

Re: NBA 2K20 Gameplay Deep Dive

The true test for me will be MyLeague. I play MyCareer and MyTeam only until I feel comfortable enough with rosters and a slider set to start MyLeague. I'm ok with the other modes so far but they're never why I buy the game. I've noticed a bit of wonkyness with the controls that I'm sure will be patched. I'm undecided on if I like the changes to badges and the mypoint system. In a way it seems like more of a grind (2K trying to force us to buy VC). I don't like that going to the gym is boosts now and doesn't go towards badges. Plus you can only go once a week. Kinda silly. I'd rather see them make the workouts more fun. Too much of The Neighborhood is the same. I'd prefer if look completely different every year.

My problem with NBA 2k is this, *size matters and itís never really been fixed. Go grab a couple centers who are 7í plus and youíre fine in rebounding and D.*

Dont be an IT type PG because youíll get swatted at the rim no matter how creative you are. It leads to a pretty similar run of team creation and play. I used to be a die hard day one, but same stuff year over year with those two aspects really hurt it for me.*
