stats

with 3 comments

so i’ve been learning how to play nba 2k11 (and getting really frustrated in the process).  something occurred to me while playing.  every single player has their own stats and skill level.  if you were a player, how sucky would it be if they made your player horrible?  slow, poor shooting percentage, poor rebounding, poor defense, etc.  i mean, you’d be pretty hurt right?  or maybe you know exactly where you stand in the nba.  maybe you know that you don’t make as many shots as say… ty lawson.  there’s something kinda cool about knowing exactly where you stand in your profession.

in a world where everyone sugar coats things and tells you, “you’re good!”  you can’t really tell where you stand compared to others.  in a lot of ways, it’s good.  however, sometimes you just want to know where you stand and how you can improve.

on a semi-related topic: i got so frustrated playing 2k11 that i had to go shoot some hoops to actually do some of the things i couldn’t make my players do.  i don’t think i’m good at sports games.

  1. Do you have this for XBOX360? If so, why don’t you play against my kids? Then you’ll really be frustrated :mrgreen:

    You’re not good at sports games? Isn’t Mario considered a semi-sports game?

  3. This game is fantastic!!! None of us made it to the NBA so that should tell you how we would perform in 2k11. Also, there’s no Korean basketball player in the league. So, don’t create your own player and put him in the game, that would alter the authenticity of the game…lol

    Because I am a Korean-American when I play this game I choose to play with Golden State…JEREMY LIN!!! the first Asian-American to make it (more specific: Chinese-American)…or the 1990 Atlanta Hawks (Spud, Dominique, Doc, Koncak, Willis).
