    Default NBA LIVE or NBA 2k8?

    Both or which or if any of these video games are you getting?

    I had the NBA Live series since 2004-2007 but I think 2k8 should be good too, can anyone give me advice on which is better. I played 2k7 and it was more realistic then NBA live 07, I liked it more on the playing touch too. I got the 360 which of these games you recommend, and which are you getting?

    2K8 because it's more realistic and you can change the sliders to your difficulty. Besides...Live has the arcade feel and I never liked Live since 2000.

    Check it, Player ratings for 2k8 David Lee is a 81...Z Bo 87, Marbury 80. Curry 80.

    Why in the association league are we a 62 rating?

    Overrated/Underrated: I know it's just one point, but Pau Gasol being rated higher than Carlos Boozer is terrible. Gasol disappears in the clutch, and if you need to be reminded of this (it's not like the Grizzlies have played any big games lately), watch the tape of Spain losing to Russia this week. Another name that pops out to me is David Lee at 81. Is it me or are the Knicks infinitely better every time that kid gets in the game?

    I will get Live 08 - I think after playing both demos it is the better game. Dynasty mode should be interesting with our current squad !

    They underrated Balkman, Collins, and our other young players. They got like really low 70's. I'm going to edit it anyway.





    Knicks Ratings:
    Overall:62
    Offense:79
    Defense:55

    Stephon:80
    Jamal:79
    Nate:74
    Q-Rich:76
    Randolph:87
    Lee:81
    Balkman:70
    Chandler:71
    Jones:72
    Rose:68
    Collins:67
    Dickau:73
    James:60



    Honestly these should be the ratings(well im going to edit them and change it to these for the most realstic association mode).


    Marbury - 85(Improved defense/shooting)
    Crawford - 77
    Richardson - 78
    Lee - 80
    Randolph - 87
    Curry - 79
    Balkman - 76
    Collins - 74
    Robinson - 74
    Chandler - 71
    Jones - 70
    Dickua - 68
    Rose:66
    James - 62



    Even though Knicks are rated low in NBA 2k8, they make the playoffs when you stimulate it.

    The West

    1. Suns
    2. Mavericks
    3. Nuggets
    4. Rockets
    5. Warriors
    6. Spurs
    7. Clippers
    8. Kings

    The East

    1. Celtics
    2. Pistons
    3. Bulls
    4. Wizards
    5. Heat
    6. Knicks
    7. Magic
    8. Nets

    The Awards

    MVP: LeBron James
    Rookie of the Year: Kevin Durant
    Sixth Man: Raymond Felton
    Defensive Player: Shawn Marion
    Most Improved: Carlos Arroyo

    Looks like I'll have a tough match-up in the first round against Yao and the Rockets. McGrady is awesome in the game and it will be up to Stephen Jackson to stop him.

    Check back later this week for Part 3, as we head into the playoffs and explore the free agent market. Is it time for Gilbert to come back home?

    Team Ratings don't mean anything really. If the guys who clog the most minutes have high ratings, expect a good season. Randolph, Curry, Lee, Marbury all have pretty good ratings. So Knicks aren't a weak team to use in NBA 2k8.


    Check out the rest of that article.

    Past basketball games seemed to be all about the lineup you control, but I have just as much fun playing against each team because they play so differently with the unique animations and signature styles.


    Live is a waste of money, I know hating on Live is played out; but seriously when I buy a video game to play basketball on my ps2, I want to see basketball, not something like Live. Get 2k8, trust me you won't regret it. I use to buy NBA Live every year till I got 2k5.

    Just wanted to ask you guys who play 2k8 on Xbox360:
    Sometimes there occurs this error "cannot read disc", anyone else having this problem too?
    I just wonder if it's because of the game, or if its a harddrive or dvd-player problem...?
