February 12th Official Roster Update for NBA 2K13 Out Now

NBA 2K13 - Jimmy Butler

After not releasing any official roster updates for NBA 2K13 last week, 2K Sports have pushed through a new roster for the game today which contains rosters updated through February 12th…sort of. Several players are still missing, Alvin Gentry is still coaching the Phoenix Suns, a handful of players are on the wrong team and only two players (Jimmy Butler and Andre Drummond) have received updated ratings. The injury status for several players has been updated, though there are some noteworthy mistakes there as well.

The new rosters will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii U is connected to the Internet. As always, PC users may update their game manually by making use of this pack. You can check out detailed analysis of the latest roster here courtesy of Rashidi, along with a video rundown of the update here courtesy of Operation Sports. Feedback about the rosters may be directed to the NBA 2K Insider on Twitter.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #16

NLSC Podcast Logo

Leftos, Ben and I are back this week with the sixteenth episode of the NLSC Podcast, where as always we discuss a couple of our favourite subjects: basketball, and basketball video games. There hasn’t been much in the way of news regarding basketball video games this week, so once again we indulge in a little speculation and “Wishlisting”, along with giving our thoughts on the most recent happenings in the NBA. Want a quick overview of this week’s episode? Here it is:

  • There isn’t a lot of noteworthy basketball video game news this week, but our modding community has continued to do excellent work, so once again we feel compelled to give some well earned recognition.
  • We offer our thoughts on the Rudy Gay trade and whether or not he’s a franchise player.
  • As Leftos is a Pistons fan, we make a point of noting that the last player from the 2004 championship team is now gone.
  • Talk about dependable franchise players leads to a conversation about players with attitude problems and whether or not longer stints in college would make a difference, as we touch on the subject of the NBA’s age restriction.
  • We discuss other recent NBA news and rumours including the announcement of the Rising Stars rosters, Brook Lopez being named a replacement for Rajon Rondo in the All-Star Game, rumoured trades and the return of Andrew Bogut.
  • As the conversation turns back to basketball video games, we talk about the things we want to see improved in Dynasty, Association and MyCAREER mode, and read out some of the community’s thoughts on the matter.
  • What else do we think is important for the future of basketball video games, especially as we approach the next generation of consoles?

As always we welcome your feedback, so please give us your thoughts on this week’s episode and any of the topics that we discussed in the comments below, as well as in this thread in the NLSC Forum.
