If my memory serves me correctly, I've never played 2k basketball, but the one time I played 2k football I hated it because the controls seemed really stiff and delayed compared to madden.

To those of you eyeing the Live bandwagon, come sniff the hay that the 2k series has to offer. It is simply better than Live these days. Speaking from an unbiased standpoint here, the people who I know that like Live more tell me they prefer it because it is Live, a brandname they are used to.

As for 2k7, I won't purchase it for awhile because I'll be in university and won't even be bringing my PS2 with me until around thanksgiving or something.

If you like true simulation, 2k is the way to go.

If you like that ****ty arcade type crap, Live is the way to go.

I have been playing live from 95 until 2003.

I remember I switched to 2k round 2003 coz whenever dirk was shooting a 3, live would make a missile sound. And there was a comet tail whenver there was a shotblock made.

On live you could play zone using shawn bradley and block players up until the 3 pt line. There was no drag and momentum on player movement.

Wow, EA is copying the 2k series so bad. Watch the first video that someone posted on the first page. Mapping moves to the analog stick like a fighting game? Already done in 2k. Shooting is done by analog stick....just like 2k. Battling for position is important? 2k has had that for years.

Live just can't compete anymore and has to resort to blatant copying. Too bad Live has the name cuz 2k is a much better game.

Well I hate to defend live, but that's wrong. The moves on the Analog stick was first done in NBA Live 2003 and 2K series COPIED Live

No, I meant like, say in 2k you want to go behind your back, you have do a semi circle motion from the side of the hand with the ball to the other side. Live had it where you just pressed a direction on the analog stick and you'd cross over to that side, or pull back on the analog stick and do a step back move. In 2k, you actually have moves that require skill to pull off in the right situations.

And Live certainly never had the shot stick, the greatest addition to basketball video games ever.

The Live series peaked in 2001 for me personally.

MY Live 2001 team:

CT: Shaquille O’Neal/ Keon Clark
PF: Shareef Abdur-Rahim/
SF: Pat Garrity/ Cedric Ceballos
SG: Bonzi Wells/
PG: Terrell Brandon/

I forget the rest, but man my team pwn3d. I made it so Pat Garrity was my best player.

I think haf way through the season (40ish games) Garrity had averages of:
28ppg
8rpg
6apg
1.5spg
1bpg

Shaq and Reef were both under 20ppg, but both were averaging over 13rpg.

It was a fun team. I might start plaing again and try and have a "Quad Seoson" with Garrity.

Do people really think 2k is better than live?
Maybe Im wrong but I bought the first 2K and the 2nd one and I thought that it was over for EA and then Live came on strong with the analog stick moves I mean compare Live 05-06 to the 2k series and its like night and day!
The 2k with Wallace on the cover is HORRIBLE and this Live 07 feature upgrade makes it unparallel in the market today

Can somebody give me some feedback please?
