I just picked up my copy of NBA2k13 yesterday and have been playing non stop since. Ive played at least 20 games against my twin bro (with only the Clippers) and havent lost yet. The Clippers are just too good. You can play hard with every player and run with turbo all day and fatigue is not a factor. They are just too deep. I know its only a video game but it is pretty realistic and accurate. This is making me realize how much potential this team really has with the bench we have in an 82 game season. Dont be surprised if we finish 1st in the West this year. Cant wait for the season to start! Go Clippers! and if you havent picked up the game yet, i highly recommend it, especially to fellow Clipper fans

Repped High Quality Post

I am going to make a my player and join the Clippers Smile. Probably will make an SF, SG, or C. Don't want to take the place of CP3 or BG ofc.

1 - If the game is pretty realistic, how realistic is it when you can hold down turbo and sprint all over the floor? Not a single player EVER sprints all over the place non stop like a lunatic.

I've played 2K bball for years. The best 2K game they ever made was 2K11, simply because of the My Crew feature. Putting your own created player on a 5 man squad playing online was awesome, they took it out last year and now are bringing back a 3 on 3 version of this to make up for all the complaining last year.

Never make guarantees on a season off a video game. If we did, Ryan Leaf would be better than Peyton Manning. Because if anyone actually remembers, Ryan Leaf was rated higher than Peyton Manning when they were rookies ( Leaf was a 79 and Manning a 75 ).

I am pleased with the team and the strides they made the last couple years and I am hoping were a top 3 team in the West, minimum.

What difficulty do you play on? Anything less than All-Star isn't acceptable. Centers making 3pters on lower difficulties is whack, and test your luck playing online against people, that's where you can really determine how good you are. When those hardcore 2K gamers come at you with a horrible team, like when I got housed by a guy using Cleveland 2 years ago and he used guys rated 65 and lower, you really come to grips with your skill level.

Enjoy the game and don't get too excited, players are highly overrated and underrated in that game. If you want the game to be more realistic, download roster updates from Operation Sports. They tweak players attributes to be more correct, sorta like how I always turn Lebrons Clutch factor way down, it's usually a 75 or higher... when in reality it's more or less a 30-50 at best.

You started a list... then never had a number 2. As for your "Anything less than All-Star [difficulty] isn't acceptable." quote, I'll leave you with this. Everybody is a noob. Except the people better than me, those guys have no life.

I realized after I hit submit post or w/e I started a list and never finished it, but w/e I can't change the past.

I only bring up difficulty levels because it's really rather easy to do just about anything if you play the game on easy mode. I've hit multiple 3pters with Yao Mind before in these games, and other centers. I've seen guys with a 10 or less 3PT rating hit fadeaway 3pt shots from 7 feet away from the line as time expired to win the game. Beating people on a lower difficulty rating to me, is almost like putting in a cheat code or adjusting the game sliders so that everybody kicks butt and cans jumpers.

I usually play 50+ games online a year in this game, usually to try to get all the trophies ( I have a PS3 ) for the online play. I normally finish above .500 and I find a lot of people using Miami and cranking up the off. tempo and fast breaking all the time like sissy girls. I find the more challenging opponents actually use normal teams, and by normal I mean not teams rated in the mid 90's overall. Some of the best opponents I've ever played against used Minnesota and Cleveland. I used to play only with Golden State online, simply because I used Monta Ellis' shot for my My Player and David Lee was a rebound machine.

There are cheaters that play this game, and they get called out on forums and there are ways to beat them without cheating. I love 2K and their basketball game, and I will probably pick this one up at some point.

lol.

If the poster of this thread reads this, I'd like to ask a few questions before I go make my purchase for this game. Or anyone else that picked up this game..

How is the My Player feature compared to the last couple years? Do you still start off really awful, getting no playing time? Are teh features for the My Player easier, did they do something that, even if it's small makes it more enjoyable?

I played the demo and it looked a little cartoony in all honesty. Is it a bit more crisp?

Does anyone have the draft rosters out for the 2013 NBA draft?

And I am a huge fan of these 2 guys, simply because their names are awesome... but do the announcers actually say the name Jonas Valanciunas and Donatis Motiejunas? Spelling is probably off there.... but I'm probably going to go balls out and trade for both of those guys because their names to me are hilarious.

1- You cant literally run with turbo all over the place if fatigue is turned on.

2- The Clippers dont have any rookies (Ryan Leaf vs. Manning) on their 12 man roster, so i would say it is pretty accurate with the veterans.

3- Anything less than Hall of Fame is pretty much a joke... and my "twin" bro is pretty damn good wink

4- The game updates itself when the season starts and that makes it a lot more fun for me. Every week or so, players that played well that week are better than last week and vice versa, and the injured players are not in the lineup.

5- And trust me this is the best 2k game so far. All of the old school teams are pretty accurate and have most of the players you want to play with (except there is no CWebber on the Warriors or Kings Sad). The Dream Team and Team USA are both ridiculously good too. And the gameplay is definitely more crisp.

And for the MyPlayer mode, this version is based on MyPlayer. Every game you play, whether with him or not (2 player vs my bro Clippers vs Blazers works) adds to your points/ coins. It is harder to get coins but you can add them to many different attributes as well as new special abilites with make your player unique. And of course you start off bad, that is the point or you will never get better...

I havent played with the Rockets yet to find out about Donatas Motiejūnas, but he is my favorite rookie this year next to Damion Lillard. DMo is going to be a great player, cant wait to watch him this year. And Lillard is my fav for ROY.

You get coins this year and not points for your My Player? And when I mean do you start off bad, a coupple of years back I remember you would start off as like a 52 overall or something, are we at least like a 60 now?

I really like the new features like the signature skills Smile. Blake Griffin's rating is way too low. He is barely higher than Monta Chucker Ellis -.-.

You play one game against your fellow rookies to show what you got and i think that affects your rating before the season starts. I believe i started with a rating of about 60 but im not sure, forgot to check when i started but my player is pretty good now. Ratings dont mean much if you know how to play with what you got.

And Blake Griffin cant shoot, but he is still an 86 which is the same as LMA so its not that bad. CP3 is a 94 which is better than Kobe who is a 93. Whats funny is that Kobe is a 96 on the Olympic team and Lebron who is a 98 in the game is a 99 on the Olympic team.

Looking for a 2nd job and I'll buy it with my first paycheck. I think the most epic finish will be getting the 1st seed with the Lakers 1 game behind. We sweep the Wolves in the first round. We have a rematch with San Antonio. We get our revenge by sweeping them some how. The Lakers beat the Thunder in the Second round. Then we have an epic 7 game series against the Lakers. The Clippers make an epic comeback in the 4th to put into Overtime type ****. The Clippers win because Kobe misses a potential game winner and we go on to the Finals against the..... Celtics. We win in 6... I know, Im dreaming but that would be a dream season. Teams are going to underestimate our depth.

lol I love how Leslie looks awful in the game, he looked the same last year. His face is so damned pudgy it's ridiculous.

What do you have against Leslie, you were bashing on him in the other thread too!

Nothing, he's actually rather good to use in spot use in NBA 2K when you need a couple fast break dunks. I just think the way they made him look in the game is ridiculous.

Got mine(PS3) a couple days ago. Our team is so bad ass on 13. I honestly think we're capable of beating any team even MIA/OKC/SAS. However, I'm a lil disappointed that we're rated 9th overall as a team while the "other" la team is #1 with a bullet. ALL HYPE roll
