    THIS. I had 2k14 on 360, and it was just like how 2k should be. When I got an Xbone One, I bought 2k14 for it.. and it looked amazing. The graphics were a clear upgrade.. and it ends there. The game is missing all the features that were staples of 2k (create-a-player, association, and a lot more)

    Hope 2k15 on next gen is better :(

    I was confused at first- but I liked it.

    What's funny is that I can very well see some of this stuff happening ( like Kobe becoming a journeyman at some point, the Thunder having to play crap players in a key playoff game because of a thin roster) - and if this were to actually happen - the Knicks would be the dumb team to fill their rotation with "doomsday" players.

    It is crazy, as you can see here, how quickly "generations" change. Really puts time into perspective from a sports POV (e.g 1/3 of the players in the league were "doomsday" players after only a few years).

    Hilarious that the Knicks were the first one to employ the "Doomsday" players.

    So basically the nba goes full circle and ends up in the 1960's again?

    Really creative and I love the creepiness of it all. Props to the author.

    Also seems fitting that the sign of end times involves Cleveland winning the chip. Damnit.
