January 29th Official Roster Update for NBA 2K14

Kevin Durant takes on the Heat in NBA 2K14 PC

A new official roster has come through for NBA 2K14 on all platforms, featuring lineups that have been updated through January 29th, 2014. A couple of missing players have been added and at a glance, it appears as though some ratings have been changed, along with some updates to injury status. At least one minor transactions isn’t included as Royal Ivey is still on the Oklahoma City Thunder’s roster despite his 10 day contract expiring, but apart from that the lineups appear to be fairly accurate and up to date.

As always, the new update will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet when you fire up your game. However, if you’re playing on PC and would like to update manually for whatever reason, pick up our offline pack which contains the latest roster and online data files.

NBA Live 14 Post Play Defense Tutorial Video

NBA Live 14: Dwight Howard

EA Sports has posted another tutorial video for NBA Live 14, this time covering the ins and outs of defending in the post. The video offers some basic defensive strategy tips, explaining how to push back on an opponent that is backing you down, pull the chair on an opponent that is aggressively backing down, draw charges and contest shots.

Watch the tutorial below or check it out here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. Once again, the tutorial takes place in what appears to be an empty practice arena, which hopefully is still a sign that a practice mode will be added in the forthcoming patches. In the meantime, feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below, as well as in the NBA Live 14 section of the NLSC Forum.

The Friday Five: Top 5 Picks for the 2014 NBA MVP (So Far)

Paul George

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

For a while now, I’ve been meaning to do another Top 5 countdown for the Friday Five, as well as share some thoughts on a topic that’s related to the real NBA. Therefore, this week I’m killing two birds with one stone. Since we’re at the halfway mark of the 2013/2014 NBA season and the topic came up during Episode #63 of the NLSC Podcast, I’ve decided to rank the Top 5 candidates for the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award…at least so far.

The MVP award can be a controversial subject. After all, not everyone agrees on the criteria for selecting the winner, or even what the honour actually means. To me, it’s an award that gives recognition to a standout player for their performance during the season; a player who, one could argue, had the best overall season when factors such as individual brilliance, noteworthy games and their impact on their team’s success are all taken into account. I don’t think that many of these picks will shock anyone, but here is the MVP race as I see it, halfway through the 2014 campaign.
