Little Changes can make My Player mode better...

Like I stated in the 2K Forum, I don't expect a perfect game, but if I spend $59.99 on this game, the least 2K can do is to fix the issues from previous years. This is my wish list for My Player mode:

1. Team you are on should play better defense and your player shouldn't be punish for double teaming or helping on defense.

2. CPU team should not be able to hit so many 3 pointers in a row, at least if there is a defender... more »

My player is a 96 spd point guard & whenever I break out on a fast break I wonder why he isn't running faster than anyone on the court. Even the opposing team's center keeps pace with me. Idk what you guys have to do to fix this but it's completely unacceptable that Marc Gasol can keep up with me on a fast break. Smh I'm so disappointed in this years game. I liked 2k11 a lot more.
