Nothing I did could get him back down and the ball was still in his hands, so I had to wait for the 24 second shot clock before he came back down.

-once in a while the ball just pops in the air end ends up on the other side of the court, out n the ballhandler who was attacking the rim
-rebounding is impossible, i box out and the guy just jumps over me to get the rebound
-winning jump balls is impossible, i had tyson chandler jumping with chris duhon and duhon won even though i was smashing square like there was no tomorrow
-i had kobe miss a fast break dunk with nobody near him. it's even worse with bigs who are wide open under the basket.
-once in a while i have a fast break go for a dunk and the guy pulls up for a jumshot or fakes it.

Yeah, I hate that. I was on a complete breakaway with Melo and attempted a dunk and he attempted a 5 foot jumpshot instead - and missed. Sadly I couldn't grab my own rebound because the computers on Hall of Fame mode run like lightning, and they came from behind and bombarded me with players and took the ball. Apparently Tim Duncan is faster than Kobe Bryant, too, because he caught me on a fastbreak.

I also hate how they grab defensive boards and whip it downcouurt to a player for an easy layup. It's like they know I'm going to miss, so the moment I release the ball, they jet up court and wait for the full court lob for the layup. Unguardable.

thats another thing, stealing passes is way too easy, you end up throwing it around like a football. I always end up with like 5 steal on bad passes and i try not to cheat.

Just you watch, h a t e r s. Live 08's gonna kick donkey ass.

But totally agree with those in-game mishaps. Steal's are just too easy. Blocking's another thing. You just jump in front of the freaking computer while going in for a dunk and there's an easy block. Hopefully that's gone by the time 08 comes by.

When playing again live opponents you are unstoppable when someone have bowen-ginobili steal combo. For opponent’s team it’s nearly impossible to cross the half-court. I once had each at about 20! Steals.

Yeah, computers make dumb passes that I can easily intercept, but I have to try to not steal it to make it more realistic. And they make bonehead passes too, passing it right into the chest of other players and turning it over. I had 22 steals once with the Nuggets and 11 with Marcus Camby.

Live is garbage on all current-gen consoles. Next gen is where it's alright.
