The Friday Five: 5 Teams Built for Basketball Video Games

The Friday Five

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.

As we all know, while some teams that look great on paper do indeed go on to win a lot of games and even championships, plenty of others do not live up to their potential and find themselves broken up sooner rather than later. Regardless of how they fare in the real world, teams that are stacked with talent usually become powerhouses and fun squads to play with in basketball video games.

In fact, some stacked teams can even look like they were put together in a video game. With rosters so deep, assembled with moves so shrewd, it’s as though a gamer has taken advantage of the CPU many times over. In this week’s Friday Five, I’m taking a look at five teams that were seemingly built for the enjoyment of basketball gamers, while reflecting upon how they fared in reality.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #85

NLSC Podcast Logo

Join Arcane, JaoSming and myself for another installment of the NLSC Podcast! In Episode #85, we discuss the lack of NBA Live 15 and NBA 2K15 news, some false information that’s making the rounds, and the beginning of the 2014 NBA free agent frenzy.

  • No NBA Live 15 or NBA 2K15 news this week, but we reflect on the letdown that was last week’s NBA 2K15 hashtag campaign.
  • For all the retro gamers in the audience, a new update has been released for NBA Live 96 on Genesis. We’re impressed with the amount of work that’s gone into it.
  • JaoSming outlines his plans for a new series on his YouTube channel this Summer, featuring NBA 2K14 PC. He promises not to mislabel it for additional views.
  • Do we anticipate playing much of NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 during the offseason?
  • Speaking of NBA Live 14, the winners of our giveaway have been selected.
  • In light of recent comments by Peter Moore, we revisit the dreaded business models of “free to play” and “free to wait”.
  • We give our reactions to the 2014 NBA Draft. Not surprisingly, one of us had a prediction that was way off.
  • The Chicago Bulls have made a strong pitch to Carmelo Anthony, but will he end up in the Windy City? We ponder that question, and discuss some deals that have already been agreed to.
  • While discussing Jason Kidd’s jump from the Brooklyn Nets to the Milwaukee Bucks, a new euphemism is coined.
  • We wrap up the episode with an entertaining Tweet from Muggsy Bogues.

The Tuesday Triple: Why Next Gen Sucks Now

This is The Tuesday Triple, where I attempt to break down random topics into three points, and maybe an “and one” if I need it. Similar to the established Friday Five by Andrew, the topics will be related to basketball video games and their communities as a whole.

We are about seven months into the latest generation of PlayStation and Xbox consoles. This also means that we have experienced about seven months of next-generation NBA basketball games with NBA 2K14 and NBA Live 14. Both games have had a pretty interesting year, from fantasy team modes that make you want to open your wallet again, to online issues and unmet potentials from both games. Still, I would say that both games started the latest generation of basketball videogames on a mostly positive note, it’s just too bad that both games suck now. Hit Read More to find out why.

Dumb Mondays: That’s Not NBA 2K15, You Liar

This is Dumb Mondays, starting the workweek off with silly facts or some of my opinions and predictions that you may or may not find interesting. This week I am sharing a dumb pet peeve of mine and will be looking for and responding to your comments throughout the week.

It, is, TIME. We are officially under 100 days until October 7th, the release date of NBA Live 15 and NBA 2K15. 2K and EA are just beginning their hype train for the Summer. The speculation is already running wild and for the next few months that will only increase as we are drip-fed information about the latest and greatest versions of our annual basketball videogames. We have already seen a few websites take the role of click-bait claiming that the PC version of NBA 2K15 will or will be a next gen port, but a yearly violation is YouTubers mislabeling the current game as the new one.
