We’re a little late again this week, but our streak is alive as Episode #144 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! This week, Arcane and I discuss recent news and events in basketball gaming, bring back a couple of segments, and talk about a few NBA topics including the upcoming 2016 All-Star Weekend.
On this week’s show…
- The NBA Live 16 rosters have been updated, but do not include this year’s All-Star teams, jerseys, or court. We also touch on the continued lack of updates to BIG Moments and NBA Rewind.
- Following our speculation last week, the NBA 2K16 Road To The Finals Pro-Am tournament has tipped off with pre-season play. Unfortunately for PC gamers, it appears to be console only.
- Take Two is being sued over the unauthorised use of certain players’ tattoos in NBA 2K16. Fair or foul?
- Returning in this week’s NLSC Podcast, Our Week in Basketball Gaming! This week, it’s all about Ultimate Team, MyCAREER, and a rant about sore losers online.
- What are some of the biggest mistakes we’ve made in franchise modes over the years?
- Do we have any plans to get into some NBA 2K16 modding?
- Jeff Hornacek has been fired by the Phoenix Suns, and replaced by Earl Watson. Not altogether surprising.
- With the trade deadline looming, we look at some rumours making the rounds, and consider who might be changing teams. Will any big names be wearing new jerseys after the deadline?
- We give our thoughts on the suggestion that Kobe Bryant will shut it down after All-Star Weekend.
- The participants for the Slam Dunk Contest and Three-Point Shootout have been announced, so we throw out some early predictions.
- Could Kevin Durant end up with the Golden State Warriors next season?
- In this week’s Bold Predictions…more of the same. The slump has to end sometime, right?
- We wrap up Episode #144 of the NLSC Podcast with the return of Trivia Question, featuring a tidbit from beyond the arc.
