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.

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…

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.

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.
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.
