My favorite part of the story mode that it is has no relation to how you actually play on the court

I didn't think it could get more horrifying than Vinny's scan last year, but oh boy, I think you topped it Alex.

Man, the CG in that intro is rough with a capital F. It looks like it's meant for the Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden sequel.

I finally finished the Spike Lee bullshit last night and man....let me tell you, that shit goes places. Spoilers I guess?

So at the end of your rookie year everyone gets together to pressure you into cutting Vic off because he's an asshole and a terrible influence on your brand. Its ok though because he ends up dying in a car crash running from someone. So at the end you and your sister go back to the projects where your parents still live because you're an awful son. As they leave the court, the fucking ghost of Vic shows up. You can tell hes a ghost because its the same character model they've used so far but he's wearing a white hoodie and sweatpants. He goes on to read a long ass letter for about 10 minutes about how much of a piece of shit he is and how he wanted to bang your mom. Finally, at the end, he sets the letter down, gets up and walks to the middle of the court...then disappears

Then, your actual Myplayer Career starts where you can play through the entire season like past years. Fuck Spike Lee

The roll thing happens all the time in NBA games. The clock doesn't start until someone (besides the in-bounder) touches the ball. it usually only happens towards the end of game (or that's how I'm remembering).

@mems1224: You forgot about the part where you try to tell Vic to get his shit together and he blackmails you with a story about you accidentally killing a guy and him cleaning up the body. And it never being mentioned again

Alex, very few players go to the NBA from high school because they can't. NBA imposed rules mandating all players had to attend college for 1 year prior to entering the NBA, after LeBron's draft year.

Well, they don't have to go to college, they just have to be one year removed from high school. Brandon Jennings played a year overseas after high school instead of college.

Players can't go straight from High School anymore, if I recall correctly.

Also, when the clock is close to zero they totally semi-roll the ball on the inbounds :)

@ghost_cat: It's really bad. I really like the game, but the story is terrible. The only good part is it only lasts for your first season, except for occasional references.

Change to turbo cam, nothing else is playable IMO in my career. 2k cam is ok in that mode, but default is unplayable in any mode.

After last year's NBA Vinny and MMA Jeff I wouldn't have thought it possible, but with NBA Alex we've a new leader in the "Damn, that looks super wrong and creepy." department. The faces fake Alex made in that intro are nightmare fuel.

@mems1224 Wow, that's some story.
