    I've been playing it on my phone because the game was on sale for Black Friday, and driving to the hoop sucks. I started my career mode over and went with a post player this time around. Buckets for days but I can't rebound for shit.

    conversely, they made it harder to defend as well. Most steal attempts end up as fouls or they blow right past you as you magically lunge 10 ft down the court.

    this year's game was the first i've played since 2k16 and i'm pretty blown away by how deep the franchise mode is. even if the game has nothing else going for it (i haven't really delved into gameplay much because i enjoy the roster building aspects of myleague more), i don't think any other sports game really comes close in that department.

    i enjoyed mycareer in the past, but the microtransaction stuff is a huge turnoff.

    On that note, I wanted to share this for my ps4 buddies, OS put out just an insanely in-depth roster tweak/coaching adjustments to make the game feel better. Definitely going to be using this at my earliest convenience. Spoilered for extreme length and attention to detail.

    I wouldn't mind this being the NBA Finals matchup. Will be a fantastic game in 2 weeks in Golden State with Steph back. Problem its the 2nd half of a B2B for Toronto which means Kawhi probably wont play

    Lillard at 1:58 remaining in the game has zero FTA. he averages 7.4/game.

    this game is entirely different if he gets a few calls penetrating. denver doesn't have as many extra possessions, etc.

    they're frustrating to play. it seems like they get a good shot every possession. lots of scorers and very deep. and it took four years but jokic is finally in shape.
