Default Nba Live 08

In NBA LIVE 08, I am unable to pivot my foot or move the ball without walking, I am unable to block dunks/layups, I can't change the speed of the players, I can't control my player too well when I'm on def, and there is no superstar modifier (Like in NBA LIVE 06, which I am OK without)

Is all that supposed to happen?

And am I the only 1 the notices that the commentators keep saying the same thing over and over again? That is really, really annoying.

That's funny because some goof on gamefaqs was saying that about 2K8 which is what made live 'better'.

I play Live online and in 07 it was so easy to drain 3's they had a lot of glitches online. I think when they made 08 they fixed that but over compensated because it is hella hard to hit a jump shot unless it is a catch and shoot shot.

I've had NBA Live '08 on 360 since Christmas and with the Bulls I've been able to beat almost all the top teams. For some reason I've been getting destroyed by the New York Knicks. Stephon Marbury always puts up like 30+ points and I can't guard him... it's ridiculous. Finally, after about my 5th try tonight I was able to send it into OT and beat them. I had to go with a big lineup of Hinrich, Deng, Tyrus Thomas, Joe Smith and Ben Wallace. But... still why are the Knicks able to dominate the Bulls so badly in that game? The Bulls have the higher rating. I mean... I was able to beat the Spurs with the freaking Magic and the Magic are like a 69 and the Spurs are an 82. What gives?
