There is a implied sense in virtual video game. For the hot upcoming game, NBA 2K17 is the virtual equivalent of a player.

If you find yourself in a situation where your roster is a year or more away from being a contender–if you land a particularly high draft pick in a fixed draft, for example–this might be the most important factor to consider. And even if you land the first overall pick, you’ll still want to consider the economic situation of your team before each and every selection, to maximize cap flexibility for the first season, and all the ones to come.


Having a firm idea of your team’s ideal identity is probably most important in the later rounds, when the best players have been chosen and you’re looking for players to fill out the bench. So many players have almost equal ratings, so understanding what skills you are looking for can make choosing between them much less difficult. If you envision a strong, gritty defensive team, you may prioritize signing someone like Tony Allen in lieu of Jamal Crawford, for example. Or if you see your team as a youth movement built to win for many years in the future, you may pass on established veterans, looking for so-called “diamonds in the rough.”

In a recent NBA 2K17 report posted on Attack of the Fanboy, it was noted that several gamers are having issues accessing the game’s online servers. This was confirmed by 2K Support via a Twitter post, which also noted that they are looking into the issue. Miami Heat’s shot-blocking center Hassan Whiteside became the best shot blocker of all time in “NBA 2K16” following its recent roster updates in the second week of January. In addition to Whiteside, other players who saw significant improvements on their ratings include DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings, Isiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics, Kemba Walker of Charlotte Hornets. Tyreke Evans of the New Orleans Pelicans, Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies.

You need to be familiar with the game if you want it to become the virtual equivalent of you.
