One of the things that turned me off about the MyPlayer experience over the years was the restrictions placed on the building and update process. There were so many limits because 2K was trying to help keep the game for NBA 2K21 MT online play that it just wasn't fun anymore. A few of those constraints are still there, but you now have a lot more control and this allows you to create players who are simply more entertaining to progress. In 5v5 gameplay, I find myself wondering why my A.I. teammates make such horrible decisions. They aren't reacting appropriately to double teams, and on crime, there is an inconsistent respect to spacing. This can create some maddening minutes of gameplay.

We'll talk about clipping in a second, but that will be more related to what happens in respect to player bodies. Ball tangibility is possibly more upsetting because when the rock is socialized with, it's critical that contact is respected and represented in the gameplay. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen. I've seen a couple passes travel through the sides of players, across a guys' shoe, etc.. This does not happen enough to kill the gameplay experience, but it happens frequently enough to say it as a negative. In reality, it may be the single biggest criticism I have of the sport on any level.

The next-gen version has multiple commentary groups, and with them, there are special guests. This retains the audio presentation in games fresh. Many players simply lean in their Spotify playlists, but for players like me who really appreciate the broadcast-style demonstration, this a welcomed addition. To go with the realistic appearance of NBA arenas, there is also increased sound. If you go for the broadcast look, you are going to hear a great blend of flooring sound effects with the audience (boy do I miss that in real life) and the commentary. I'd really like to see a halftime show where the commentary from Shaquille O'Neal, Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith really matched the clips being exhibited on the highlight reel. It seems a little less random on next-gen, but nothing that will stop me from leaping through it.

By combining MyGM and MyLeague into MyNBA, they have ignored everyone in a hurry that they were already winning. I must point you to my writeup with this attribute to get a more wholistic look at this mode, but trust me once I say, it's as good as advertised if you are a franchise style fan. Roster production and franchise style type of go awry, and Buy 2K MT both have observed noteworthy upgrades. The next-gen version makes it possible for fans to talk about their MyNBA setups and situations for nearly unlimited replay value for all those from the community. The quantity of customization in this household of modes has every additional sports gaming community envying what 2K franchise fans have in their disposal.
