    lol I agree..but I never noticed #1...
    Live 04 is great..I only played the demo of ESPN 2k4..but I had 2k2 and 2k3 before..I don't know what to get next. If ESPN is 20 bucks, I'll get it. :)

    EA may own football and baseball, but I have to give Basketball to ESPN/SEGA NBA 2K series.

    The DC version 2k2 was probably the best basketball game ever.

    One thing with ESPN NBA is you have to adjust the sliders to make it realistic. Everyone who complains about the gameplay, plays it on allstar or superstar difficulty w/o changing the sliders...
    Graphics-wise, Live doesn't compare.

    Live is over and done with, you have the die-hard EA'ers hanging on...

    remember how 989's NFL Gameday ruled the Earth and then just faded away?

    I didn't like last years ESPN, but the Dreamcast versions were awesome! I prefered NBA Live 2004 to ESPN Basketball

    Yeah I win most of the time, but I'm that perfectionist type that could go 81-1 in a season and get pissed off about that 1 loss. I lose cause of cheating maybe 1 in every 10 games or so.

    nba live's gameplay was too arcadish for me. espn was sorta of a simulation but i didnt to play the low post with yao. i couldn't make him do a hook shot at all. i hope espn nba 2k5 will be 20 bucks just like espn nfl 2k5 (which comes out july 20 or 21st at eb games and gamestop)

    While I liked ESPN - I'd give it a slight edge over last year's Live, but it was almost a wash in some respects - I think that's a little wishful thinking on your part.

    That's still an extremely close race. And I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    Also...

    ....Gameday was good for like one year.

    in nba live 2004 they used a standard arena for the rockets, will the toyota center actually be in this one? and will we get to control ticket/food prices in franchise mode like other games?

    The thing I have with Live is that when you tip a ball on an inbound and Deflect a pass and it goes out of bounds. They give you a turnover.


    ESPN Basketball needs to fix that camera angle, well I really don't mind the angle it's just that it's too high and that ISO stuff is garbage.
