    Alot of teams have Noche Latina and retro and throwbacks and alternate jerseys but in 2k12 you cant what jersey to wear so you should be able to choose what jersey you would want to wear

  2. Comment

    Like the idea but don't bring in when you played in HS and college that is too much WORK

  3. Comment

    1) You should have your own voice and more hairstyles

    2) Be able to be a top 5 pick or be the first overall pick. It depends though if you have a good showcase, also there should be the Nike hoops summit and if you do well or really good it will determine were you will go including the interviews.

    3) There should be more interviews( before games, during time outs, halftime and after) also interviews during your non playing days therefore there should be a calendar.

    4) Better teammate AI, I get frustrated when my teammates make stupid mistakes.

    5) able to change jerseys, also more endorsements with nike, adidas, etc.

    6) In the offseason see what the team is doing because in 2k12 you cant. Also when you become the best player on the team they ask you what player you would prefer your team to draft.

    7) REALISTIC TRADES! I get tired seeing the worst trades. Also when a star is in free agency if he is happy he will stay but if he is mad he Will leave to a realistic team not the bucks lol.

    8) All star game if your good at ducking you could be in the funk contest and if your good at threes you could be in the three point competition also add the team shaq team Chuck game in the break.

    9) your contract money could go in a house or a car etc.

    10) this one will sound really unrealistic but add twitter and facebook. After each game you will tweet and if it is a bad tweet popularity goes down and vise versa, more popularity more followers and on Facebook more popularity more likes. You have a section and it is called the media section and you can tweet and go on FB but you want go on all the time you have to buy tweets in order to tweet but you still sweet after every game. Lets say dwight howard goes to the nets or mavericks you post it on Facebook and twitter saying congrats to my man dwight on the big trade.

      i like the twitter idea but i think dats too much ;p

    2. Comment

      I love the Twitter idea. They should also have an ability to make friends and rivals in the league which can spill into social media. Like you follow players you're friends with and they follow back. I'll use your example. Dwight Howard goes to the mavs. If you're his friend, you can give him a shoutout like you said.

    Be able to do chest, back, and leg tattoos. Chris Anderson doesn't have a blank chest after his neck

  5. Comment

    (1)Let us be able to call out players ...if ur teammate suck nd u want better from him let us call him out. It shows leadership too

    (2) even tho a player rating is higher doesn't mean he's better..let teammates be able to get benched seriously. Ex) i had a great sg the team traded nd got another sg that had a higher rating but he was garbage nd guess who got benched. The great sg got benched, things like this can make u frustrated with ur team

    This mode is one that needs way more attention to detail regarding face editing, body types, wingspan to height ratio, along with variety among accessories.


    Since 2k continues to drop the ball in this department I feel they should do away with the default hair selections and allow users the ability to choose a hairstyle from current NBA players already in the game and apply them to our player as for facial hair as well.


    The gear is mad wack son always has been lol. 2k should do their homework on all of the basketball accessories available for player use and get them in the game! Long knee sleeves, Face masks, Goggles, etc.


    Tattoos are BIG this day in age and every other player in the NBA has body art, I have yet to see anyone with a small racing car or an one old english letter tattoo'ed on them smh.

    We should be able to have realistic full arm and neck sleeves including hand tattoos and place them wherever we want.


    The shoes are horrid and from a graphical standpoint still resemble the likes of the PS2. There should be more colorways, full customization of shoes and more brands to choose from such as Under Armor, And 1, etc.

    If 2k would actually put some damn time into this mode it would enhance the My Player mode plenty by itself, let's keep hoping for that lol

    More customization abilities.

    - New hairstyles, not same was previous two years.

    - New accessories, 2k12 did improve on this.

    - More shoes to chose from, 2k12 did a good job with Nike ID, expand on that.

    - New tats, don't bring back the same selection as the previous two years.

    More options

    - Recommend players to trade for, that the team actually carries out.

    - Make contracts for your player shorter so you're not trapped with a team like the Wizards or Timberwolves for three seasons.

    - AllStar weekend for My player, if I'm leading the league in 3PT shooting, I want to be in the shootout. Period.

    - Chemistry with teammates, e.g if I'm on the Clippers running SG I want to be able to select an option for Chris Paul to hit me in the corner, throw oops more often, or tell Blake Griffin when I get the ball to cut to the basket. If I'm running PG on the Heat I want everyone to space the floor. Allow players to control their teams more, and sooner. Not only PG's.

    - Celebrations and communication, if KD hits a three I want to give him a high five when he's running back down the floor, which could increase chemistry ratings with the team or him individually. But if Lebron is hogging the ball I should be able to yell at him to pass, possibly lowering a chemistry rating.

    PICKUP GAMES FOR MY PLAYER. Let us take our hard work on our my players online and compete with others, just like 2k11. Bring it back.

    Fix the braid hair style. Make the braids longer and possibly different kinds of braid hair styles. Also bring back classic back in the day hair styles and a better mohawk.

  11. Comment

    Yea I'm pretty sure everybody wants more hair styles and tattoos and more nicknames. we want them to look like us or look cool, it makes us confident, swag..nuff be cool if we have the option to get tattoos on our necks, sleeve tattoos, tattoos on our hands like D.Rose, tattoos under our arm, maybe tattoos on our legs too?, please add a bunch of tattoo designs... they should have better looking Mohawks(and have some Mohawks for African Americans), and I don't get it? Player is rich and choose the hair with waves but his hair line is raggedy smh, but over all for everybody 2k YOU NEED MORE HAIR styles and DESIGNS and maybe you'll add the James Harden beard... add more nicknames seriously ....I mean its been 3 games 2k10 2k11 and 2k12 and all these things are the same like c'mon man...If they don't Adddddd anything in 2k13 imma be disappointed

  14. Comment

    For real for real, we get bored seeing the same thing all the time. We really do 2k....we are all repeating the same things like

    *Put crew back

    *Celebrations with teammates or after a play

    *the crowd needing to be loud and more into it

    *playoffs/All star/championship needing a different feel to it from regular seasons

    *showing us receive our trophies and give a short speech if we're championship mvp

    *improved coaches

    *more tattoos, nicknames, names, hair styles

    *pregame shoot around

    *more endorsement, and more signature shoe designs

    *half time interviews

    *locker room

    *giving teammates points when we're are rated 99

    *more voice selection, clothes

    *rookie showcase, summer league, off season stuff


    *improved commentators

    *better gameplay and more realism to it

    We talk about the same things, its obvious what the game needs

    NBA 2k13 has to have more haircuts like tapers, taper mohawks, and maybe even designs for your players head. A good example of a possible my player hair cut would be like Brandon Jennings or James Harden's mohawk. A good taper like the one Deron Williams has right now would be nice to. ( with perfect edge ups). Also it would be nice if we can have the option of having tattoos like the ones the players have. This would make the my player mode a lot cooler.

    My player

    1. Add a lot more tattoos. Have options for full sleeves, half sleeves, big tattoos, small tattoos, face tattoos, leg tattoos, hand/finger tattoos. More tattoos.

    2. Let us choose our voice from like 6-12 voices.

    3. Let us wear different suits every game. Nobody wears the samething every game.

    4. Give us a lot more questions and answers in interviews. Also let us do an interview with Craig sager in between quarters and/or halfs where we can talk about the teams performance, our performance, the other team, the refs, ect.

    5. Let us be able to change/set our tendencies instead of them being set for us.

    6. Let us be able to choose our secondary position.

    7. Let us be able to choose our jersey number, and also which jersey we wear for games (home, away, alternates)

    8. More endorsements, and billboards and stuff.

    9. Let us have a crib like the old madden game where we can arrange our trophies and rings and stuff.

      Also add a team mate and coach trust meter. And a popularity/status scale, starting at rookie, then going to future star, fan favorite, captain/team leader, star, superstar, legend ect.

  17. Comment

    In "My Player" there should be an option to select your team's uniform & your opponent's uniform before the game starts just like in other game modes!!! It gets to be a little boring after a while being forced to wear the main home and away uniforms!

    Add wingspan (longer wingspan should help with blocks, rebounds, steals)

    Add new haircuts and facial hair (high top fade, better buzzcut, James Harden fauxhawk)

    Add body type (Skinny like Durant, Buff like Dwight or LeBron, stocky like Glen Davis, lean like Kobe)
