NBA 2K13 - Tony Parker

A new official roster update for NBA 2K13 is now available, containing lineups that have been updated through March 2nd, 2013. The rosters will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii U is connected to the Internet, but if you’re playing the game on PC and would like to update your game manually, you may do so using our offline update pack.

Six players have had their ratings edited in the latest roster, namely Tony Parker, Stephen Curry, Ty Lawson, Andre Iguodala, Dion Waiters and Royce White. Patrick Beverley and Mike James have also been added to the roster and some minor transactions have been accounted for, though there are still a few missing players and transactions and Alvin Gentry is still coaching the Phoenix Suns.

NLSC Podcast – Leftos & JaoSming Impromptu-cast

NLSC Podcast Logo

Late Thursday night in Athens, early in the evening in Vermont, Leftos and JaoSming get together seemingly just to play some Trials Evolution Gold Edition and chat. One hour in, just as Jon is finishing every single track in the single player “campaign”, they realise they are talking about some interesting stuff. So, Leftos hits record and an impromptu podcast happens.

  • JaoSming shows off his mad skills in Trials, but admits he can screw up pretty much everything else.
  • They go through what stuff your favorite duo has done together since that Episode #6 when they were last together on the NLSC Podcast.
  • JaoSming makes some bold claims about NBA 2K13, and they both go over the ways they enjoy the game.
  • They introduce the upcoming Roster Workshop tool for NBA 2K13.
  • Leftos reminisces about how his NBA Stats Tracker tool started, how far it’s gone, and how it can help both real-life coaches and NBA 2K gamers enhance their experience and gain an advantage over their opponents.
  • They discuss how Brad Pitt stole a Cavaliers’ stats guy in Moneyball. Wait, what?
  • They go back to how their strong friendship began. Spoiler: It was yet another tool that brought them together.
  • The troubles of decoding the roster are brought up; both have immense respect for Vlad and what he does every year.
  • JaoSming tries to persaude everyone he’s still a good husband and father.
  • An interesting question is brought up: When doing an Association, do you treat your players as real people, or do you ignore them completely and do your thing knowing its just a videogame? What’s more engaging when you introduce your Association to an audience?
  • NBA Inside 09 is brought up, which apparently was a terrible basketball game, but had a good storyline, something that’s missing from all other basketbal games.
  • Suddenly, magic happens, as they decide they’re going to start the biggest (and most interesting, possibly) project they’ve ever undertaken, and change the way basketball games are played. We’re not kidding.

We hope you enjoy this impromptu bonus episode of the NLSC Podcast! Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below or here in the Forum, and don’t forget to check out Episode #19 featuring Leftos, Ben and myself, released earlier this week.

The Friday Five: 5 Basketball Video Game Myths


Another Friday is upon us, so it’s time for a new edition of The Friday Five! If this is your first time reading The Friday Five and you’re wondering what it’s all about, it’s a feature that I post every Friday in which I talk about a variety of topics related to basketball video games, the real NBA and other areas of interest, providing my thoughts as either a list of five items or presenting them in Top 5 countdown format.

Last week I posted a countdown of the Top 5 Easter Eggs in basketball video games, so for this week’s Friday Five I’m taking a look at five basketball video game myths. Rumours and video games go hand in hand thanks to the presence of actual hidden content, the tendency for gaming publications to indulge in April Fools’ gags, trolls intentionally spreading misinformation and simple misunderstandings. Basketball games are no different, so let’s separate fact from fiction and debunk five basketball video games myths.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #19

NLSC Podcast Logo

This week on the NLSC Podcast, we react to a quiet trade deadline, talk about our recent gaming experiences and against our better judgement, offer up more predictions. Join Leftos, Ben and myself as we chat about all of that and more in Episode #19. A longer synopsis of the latest episode is as follows:

  • As we are still a few months away from the preview season, news is still slow. However, there were a couple of tidbits of note from the past week.
  • Since the preview season is a little ways off, we note the need to be wary of fake news and speculation being mistaken for facts.
  • Following our weekly community update, we discuss Forum etiquette, particularly in regards to modders and mod users.
  • Leftos provides us with some exciting news about his tools, especially NBA Stats Tracker.
  • We talk about our recent experiences with basketball video games, as well as some other games that we’re playing at the moment. Ben has a couple of questions for the community.
  • The trade deadline turned out to be a very quiet one, shooting down our predictions (especially mine).
  • Not inclined to learn from our mistakes, we offer some more predictions for the remainder of the regular season.
  • We recap and react to Sony’s announcement of the PlayStation 4.

NBA 2K14 Tidbit, Notes on Warriors’ New Alternate Jersey

New Warriors Alternate Jersey in NBA 2K13

2K Sports Community Manager Ronnie 2K has thrown out an NBA 2K14 related teaser on his Twitter, mentioning a meeting that took place with Nike and Gatorade during the past week regarding their involvement with the game. This follows a recent Tweet by Nice Kicks, which also mentioned a meeting with 2K Sports regarding NBA 2K14. The preview season is still a few months away so we’re unlikely to find out any more details in the immediate future, but feel free to speculate in the comments below, as well as take the discussion to the Forum.

Ronnie also mentioned that 2K were not provided with art for the Golden State Warriors’ new alternate jerseys with sleeves ahead of NBA 2K13 being shipped and as such, cannot build a sleeved jersey into the game with the official updates. However, if you’re playing on PC, you can get the new sleeved alternate (along with a couple of fictional jerseys based on it) courtesy of this jersey pack by Tha King. Please note that this pack is for the PC version only, it cannot be used with any of the console versions.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #18

NLSC Podcast Logo

After our failures predicting All-Star Weekend 2013, we try our luck with trade deadline predictions, catch up on some NBA 2K13 news and chat about all sorts of balls. Want to know what else we talk about in Episode #18 of the NLSC Podcast featuring Leftos, Ben and myself? Here’s an overview:

  • One of us has sustained an injury, but it’s not an ACL tear. What a faux pas!
  • A little bit of movie talk leads us to research the flicks with the most profanity and dish out a little innuendo.
  • We move on to basketball video game news, which has been slow. Still no news on the PC patch for NBA 2K13; we’re not jumping for joy.
  • NBA 2K13 and MLB 2K13 will be available together as a combo pack. I talk about it with all the enthusiasm I can muster.
  • As the discussion turns to All-Star Weekend 2013, we reflect on our not-so-wonderful predictions.
  • We offer our reactions to the Weekend and read out some comments from the community.
  • The latest trade rumours are discussed as the trade deadline looms. More bold predictions are made, ready to be laughed at next week.
  • We close with some chatter on Sony’s big announcement.
