New season wrecks game

So before the new update I played all the time and loved this game so much. Of course it wasn’t perfect, but it was still a great basketball game. However after the update, the app totally went downhill. My biggest problem is the lag. All the time the game will slow down and get super glitchy, it’s so annoying. Upgradable players are cool, but coaches are pointless. I also hate how you only have two lineups. All you have to do is max out on your nba lineup. You can’t even use the classic lineup for anything but live events which is stupid. And once you max out on the regular lineup, you’ve got nothing else to do there’s no incentive. Defense is horrible my players let the offense drive to the basket every time. Rebounding is still nonexistent. The new sets are fine, nothing special. Shot meter is pointless.

All in all, the new update is way worse than the old version. Get this at your own risk.


I played this game and loved it, until they made me restart from lvl 1 with all bronzes. My 87 Lebron, 84 John Wall, 84 Hassan Whiteside, 87 Isaiah Thomas, and 90 PUAL PIERCE were gone. Anyone who was ever involved in this update, I’d like to say that you are officially stupid. Also, where are the half court violations? AND... when i shoot and get a 12 and miss, the reason is usually “low rating”. SINCE WHEN IS 12 a low rating? I worked hard to get those characters and spent hours getting up to an 80 overall. WHY DID THEY DO THIS TO ME??? Also, i was so close to getting my mvp 2015 steph curry. YOU DON”T RESTART AT THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW SEASON. Also, im going to purchase the much better basketball game, nba 2k18. I thought this was a good game, but you changed my opinion fully 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎🏀 ANYONE WHO WANTS A GOOD BASKETBALL GAME WITH SAVED PROGRESS, GET 2k18, THE BETTER 🏀 GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Game play is terrible!

I genuinely hate this game! This new updated version is junk! Gameplay is always in slow motion and is constantly hesitant. Head to head is the biggest waste of time! Not only does the CPU constantly switch your defender it also causes you to miss about 90% of your layups or short jumpers. Even when you perfectly stop it in the green sweet spot. It doesn’t allow opportunity at rebounds either. Making it a virtual impossibility to win. Why does the game play differently in head to head than it does in season or live events? It’s ridiculous! Wish they would’ve never refreshed, the previous version was much more enjoyable and at least I could play in real time instead of in “sloth mode”!
You know, McDonald’s hasn’t changed the Big Mac recipe and KFC hasn’t changed it’s original 11 herbs and spices recipe either. You know why?, because it works! It’s good, and people like it! Way to make a good thing into absolute garbage!
