NBA 2K8 may very well be the best sports simulation Iv'e ever played. THey finally got it right...you can t just stutter-step, drive the lane and dunk anymore. You have to actually know basketball, run plays and execute them. Awesome game, just wish they could have given the Warriors a little more credit :mrgreen:

Yeah, the Warriors are pretty poorly rated in Live 08, also, S-Jax just plays horribly! (not bad when you actually play with him but his sim stats are not good for me atleast) I had to trade him............which funnily enough was S-Jax, B Wright and draft pick to Memphis for Gasol...........which then quickly turned into Gasol and Harrington to Utah for Boozer and Kirilenko!..........abit of steal and sealed the title for me too............although I know Im now a traitor for doing that traded. :mrgreen:

Anyway, I havnt had a chance to t play 2k8 yet, mostly because Ive been playing Live since 94, although the last 2 years have been awful.............but I do want to check 2k8 out, especially as there are so many glitches in Live 08 on Xbox 360 and it crashes or freezes constantly............drives me nuts.

We are rated a 74 overall. Azu, Matt Barnes, Monta and Jax are all a bit underrated. Just fr some perspective...the Bobcats have the same rating as the Dubs and the Nets, Heat, Grizzlies, Clippers, Raptors are all rated higher. :banghead:

NBA Live has not been sick for quite some time now.

As a Live devotee who spent close to 10 years mindlessly loyal to the brand, I gotta say... I knew something was wrong when they put 'Toine on the cover... :shock:

Grab a copy of NBA 2K8. I've been playing it for months on my PS3 and its awesome.
