New Ultimate Team Legends: Sean Elliott, Larry Nance, & Jalen Rose

Sean Elliott, Larry Nance, and Jalen Rose in NBA Live 15 Ultimate Team

A trio of new Legends have been added to Ultimate Team in NBA Live 15 this weekend, namely Sean Elliott, Larry Nance, and Jalen Rose.


The three-time NBA All-Star played 13 seasons between the Suns and Cavaliers, averaging 17.1 PPG and 8 RPG. The 6’10 Nance averaged more than 2 BPG throughout his career.


The left-handed swingman is most known for his tenure with the Indiana Pacers, where he helped the Pacers reach the 2000 NBA Finals. Rose averaged 18+ PPG in six different seasons.


A former third-overall pick and two-time All-Star, Elliott helped lead the Spurs to an NBA title in 1999. His game-winning three-pointer in the 1999 Western Conference Finals, known as the “Memorial Day Miracle,” is one of the biggest shots in Spurs history.

The Friday Five: 5 Ways You Can Help The NLSC

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.

For those of you who may not be aware, the NLSC has been around for a little over eighteen years. While I’d like to think that those of us who have been a part of the site’s staff over the years have done our part to keep the NLSC alive and kicking for close to two decades now, we certainly wouldn’t be here if not for the support and contributions of our visitors and community regulars. As far as gaming communities are concerned, basketball games are unquestionably a niche interest, but we’re proud to provide facilities and a home for basketball gamers from around the world.

From time to time, members of the community reach out to me and ask how they can support or help the site. I certainly appreciate those offers, and welcome any constructive contributions that people are willing to make. There are times when we’ll look to add new members to the NLSC Team, but even if you’re not on staff, there are definitely ways that you can help us thrive and grow. In this week’s Friday Five, I’m outlining some of the ways that you can help lend a hand around the NLSC.

November 20th Roster Update for NBA Live 15
