With the NBA Finals upon us and E3 right around the corner, we’ve certainly got a few things to talk about in Episode #81 of the NLSC Podcast. Join Arcane and I as we speculate on NBA Live 15 and NBA 2K15, cover a couple of other news items from the past week, and make our predictions for the rematch between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat.
- We open with a couple of housekeeping notes regarding future episodes of the Podcast, the Wiki, and a celebration of the 20th Anniversary of NBA Live.
- A few more issues have arisen with the NBA Live 14 rosters, but a new update will apparently be coming through at some point. We’ve also been told that these issues should be ironed out for NBA Live 15.
- Neither NBA Live 15 or NBA 2K15 have been officially announced for E3, but we expect there’ll be some news coming out of the event. We speculate on what we might see.
- We’ll be getting a look at NBA 2K15 during Game 1 of the NBA Finals. “OMG Trailer” Part Two, perhaps?
- We’re holding our last NBA 2K14 Steam key giveaway. Get your entries in before next Wednesday!
- Moving on to this week’s NBA discussion, we recap and react to the end of the Conference Finals. What’s next for the Oklahoma City Thunder and Indiana Pacers?
- Because we’re so good at predictions, we make our picks for the rematch between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.
- The Los Angeles Clippers could soon be sold for $2 billion, but Donald Sterling is looking to sue the NBA. We take another look at the controversy and the “freedom of speech” arguments that are being made.
- On that note, we discuss some comments by Mark Jackson that have recently come to light, which may have ultimately cost him his coaching job with the Golden State Warriors.
- Looking ahead to the offseason for a moment, we consider some of the big moves that might happen. Yes, we make some more predictions!
- We wrap up the show with some talk about a few other games that we’re interested in at the moment.
