Hassan Whiteside Now Rated 77 Overall in Latest NBA 2K15 Roster

Following a couple of unremarkable seasons with the Sacramento Kings, and stints playing in the D-League and China, Hassan Whiteside is beginning to capture the attention of NBA fans after stringing together some impressive performances for the Miami Heat. After stepping into a more prominent role, Whiteside is averaging 12.3 ppg, 8.6 rpg, and 4 bpg for the month of January. He also registered a triple double with 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 blocks in the Heat’s 96-84 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.

Whiteside’s recent play certainly has the makings of feel-good story, the tale of a player finally finding his place in the big time and turning heads with some unexpected performances. His exploits certainly haven’t gone unnoticed at 2K Sports, as the latest roster update for NBA 2K15 has seen his overall jump a whopping 18 points, from 59 to 77.

As it stands, that’s one of the biggest boosts since the “Linsanity” craze saw Jeremy Lin’s overall jump from 56 to 69 back in NBA 2K12. And in some ways, Whiteside’s recent run is a little reminiscent of Lin’s emergence three years ago, from grabbing the attention of basketball fans to its impact on basketball video games.

The Friday Five: 5 Ways Basketball Games Haven’t Improved

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.

Last week, I talked about the ways in which basketball video games have improved over the years. I still stand by that, and believe it to be true; beyond the advances in graphics and technology that have benefitted video games in general, basketball games have come a long way in replicating the sport. However, there are also still areas in which they leave something to be desired.

That’s what I’m taking a look at this week: five ways that basketball games haven’t improved, or at the very least, haven’t improved to the extent that we would like. They’re the nagging, lingering issues that I believe detract from games that we otherwise enjoy. Issues such as…

NLSC Podcast – Episode #107

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #107 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Arcane and I are your hosts this week, as we catch up on the latest news, start our Wishlists for this year’s games, and discuss the past week in the NBA.

  • We recap the latest content updates for NBA Live 15, which include new rosters and Ultimate Team Legends.
  • Da_Czar has posted another NBA 2K15 play improvements video, this time focusing on handoff plays.
  • In a bizarre turn of events, we’ve both released updates for NBA Live 08!
  • Since it’s a while before NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16 news starts coming out, we begin our Wishlists.
  • Which features would we take from NBA 2K, and put into NBA Live? Which NBA Live features would we add to NBA 2K?
  • Moving on to the real NBA, both of our favourite teams are struggling. Clearly, we jinxed them.
  • The Rising Stars Challenge is adopting a USA vs The World concept. Do we like that change?
  • Potential participants for this year’s dunk contest have been revealed…but does it matter, if the format is the same as last year?
  • Brandon Jennings has registered the first 20+ point, 20+ assist game since Steve Nash in 2009. Meanwhile, the Playoffs are actually looking like a realistic goal for the Pistons.
  • The Knicks have finally won again. In fact, they have a winning streak going!
  • Shawn Marion has announced his retirement at the end of the season. Will Kobe Bryant join him?
  • Will Ferrell films a movie at a Pelicans game, and Not Bill Walton provides us with another gem to end the episode.

NBA 2K15 Play Improvements, Part 2 (Da_Czar)

Da_Czar has posted Part 2 of his look at play improvements in NBA 2K15, this time focusing on handoffs. The video notes that most handoff plays are designated with the label “Give”, and demonstrates how they are run from beginning to end, as well as how the plays branch.

Czar also provides some tips on how to use handoff plays most effectively, from the timing on pressing the pass button to positioning and facilitating a smoother handoff with a dribbling move.

Once again, it’s well worth checking out for an insight into playcalling, as well as some tips on how to master NBA 2K15. Watch it below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #106

NLSC Podcast Logo

We’re back! A new season of the NLSC Podcast tips off with Episode #106, hosted by Arcane and myself. In this episode, we recap the news since the final show of 2014, and discuss some topics suggested by members of the community.

  • We open the show with a rundown of all the NBA Live 15 news since Episode #105, including the latest roster updates, the second title update, Ultimate Team content, and our giveaway.
  • The Android version of NBA Jam has received another roster update, along with new audio provided by Tim Kitzrow. Boom-shaka-laka!
  • NBA 2K15 news items include the third title update (now available everywhere), Arcane’s shoe glitch workaround, a new video from Da_Czar, and a complete guide to earning Badges.
  • Have we gotten into some NBA 2K15 modding yet?
  • Moving on to the real NBA, we discuss Kobe Bryant’s future, and whether he’ll accept a smaller role.
  • As we approach the halfway point of the NBA season, who are our top contenders? Can the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors stay on top?
  • Is LeBron James in decline, and can the Cleveland Cavaliers bounce back? We make our predictions.
  • We discuss the rumoured sale of the Atlanta Hawks, and the possibility that they could end up being the new Seattle Supersonics.
  • Cutting Josh Smith has worked out quite well for the Detroit Pistons (and not too bad for the Houston Rockets). The New York Knicks’ trade of J.R. Smith hasn’t had quite the same effect.
  • Mo Williams becomes the latest unexpected player to tally a 50+ point game.

Guide to Earning Badges in NBA 2K15 (Operation Sports)

For those of you who may be wondering how to earn Badges in NBA 2K15’s MyCAREER mode, producer Zach Timmerman has posted a comprehensive guide here over on Operation Sports. The guide covers every Badge in the game, and lays out all of the requirements for earning each one.

It also mentions that certain Badges can be lost as the situation changes (such as Alpha Dog and Beta Dog), and that while Badges that have been earned can carry over to the next year, you must fulfil the requirements to earn them within the same season. In other words, the necessary stats or games played to earn a Badge cannot span two different seasons.

It’s definitely worth checking out, so give it a look if you’re having trouble earning some of those Badges. If you’d like to share your own tips on how to earn any Badges, feel free to post them in the NBA 2K15 section of the NLSC Forum.

NBA 2K15 Play Improvements, Part 1 (Da_Czar)

Da_Czar has posted a new video, spotlighting the various play improvements in NBA 2K15. It makes comparisons to NBA 2K14, in particular demonstrating a lack of movement in the previous game which made it too easy to disrupt a structured offense.

Czar also demonstrates how play stability has been improved in NBA 2K15, with player movement such as back door cuts not breaking the play, but instead allowing multiple options and play branching to occur.

As always, it’s a great insight into the playcalling system, so I’d recommend checking it out. Watch it below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.
