I definitely still believe there's an open opportunity for any gaming company willing to put in the proper time and effort (perhaps even EA). Gamers might not be pleading for another NBA game option, but they weren't really around 2000 either (as 2K arrived). Sometimes it's just a matter of someone busting through and redefining what we thought a basketball game could be. And with a new console generation popping up sooner than later, I think the opportunity could be there for someone. And maybe it'll just be 2K redefining things themselves.
