A new roster update has come through for NBA 2K14, containing rosters that have been updated through November 11th, 2013.

A new developer blog has been posted over on the official NBA Live website, providing an insight into LIVE Season in NBA Live 14.

BIG Moments allow users to replay memorable moments from the current NBA season, ranging from a few seconds (such as Derrick Rose’s gamewinner against the New York Knicks last week) to a full quarter.

NBA Rewind meanwhile will not only allow you replay games with accurate CourtQ data powered by Synergy Sports, it will also feature dynamically generated objectives based on the real game’s statistics.
