From Strategyinformer.com: "It's a funny time for the NBA. As the league sits amidst a dramatic lockout, there's not much for fans of basketball to get excited about. Globally recognised athletes stay at home, contemplating opportunities overseas, wasting their talents away. 2K's return couldn't be more welcome, even if it's just used for remembering what the ol' b-ball is all about. I jest, that would be doing this release a massive disservice, as the franchise returns in sparkling form".
