NBA Shutdown Is Causing Issues For NBA 2K20

When art can't imitate life.

3 Comments

Thanks to the coronavirus, the NBA season has been put on hold. While the choice was made in the interest of the player and public health, there's one thing they didn’t consider--how it would affect NBA 2K20.

One of the main features of NBA 2K20 is the MyLeague mode, which allows the player to build a career based on the current season and stats of the NBA. While creating a pretty realistic game mode and experience for the player, this requires 2K20 to pull from the official schedule and statistics online in real time, in real time. Kotaku is reporting that, without this data the game has no idea what to do. Since the games have ceased, the game now struggles to simulate results, but when it finds no new data it simply crashes.

This is an unprecedented situation for for 2K, as they could not have predicted the suspension of the season. It's unclear how the developer will handle this, but we'd anticipate an update soon.

Stay tuned for more updates on the situation as it unfolds.

I'll never forget my philosophy professor back in the day

making a big-deal about how ridiculous Sports player contracts had become...

Back in 2002/2003('ish) The Vikings gave Daunte Culppeper a incredibly ridiculous

contract over 100 million. This was 2003 when the 100 million dollar contract wasn't the norm

for even the elite..(We all know Cullpepper sucked after this contract and was cut or traded for peanuts to Dolphins and never played again after sucking badly.

But The Memory is when the Professor was amazed and pissed off that Cullpepper got it..

I believe he didn't like Culpepper from a few years earlier at Central Fl where rumor exist that

Dude failed/struggled badly..(I guess worse then ur avg star athlete in college)

*Back on point to the part that stuck with me all these years is

how sports players & esp rookies who haven't proven themselves

get stupid amounts of money when a Policemen,,Military,Plumbers,,Contruction,,electricians etc etc

get peanuts compaired to...

~I agree completely that sports stars salaries need a reset.

Only the absolute BEST should get 1 million a season.

$100 + mill is ridiculous....

ANyways,,sorry bout telling this story/memory in a non flowing manner.

im sup[er tired......

Who cares? Maybe 2K Games can take time off to make the game fun again.
