The National Basketball Association had a ridiculous amount of activity leading up to the February 18, 2011, trade deadline. 2K Sports’ most recent update to critically-acclaimed NBA 2K11 takes care of all the blockbuster trades that went down. For example, Kendrick Perkins is now part of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Deron Williams is a New Jersey Net and Baron Davis is a Cleveland Cavalier. (I am so sorry for you, Baron).
The season’s biggest trade, Carmelo Anthony going to the New York Knicks, was in a previous update. This should shake up online play quite a bit.
Expect the Anthony-led Knicks to get more popular, for certain. Perkins won’t get to play for a few weeks with a knee injury but he has signed a long-term deal with the Thunder. They’re a young team and should be a popular online option for years to come.
2K Sports hasn’t made any player ratings changes yet, just the roster moves. Injured players including Perkins still aren’t usable. The game’s “living rosters” strive to keep the most accurate teams.
If you haven’t picked up a basketball title in a couple of years, NBA 2K11 is a great reason to start again. The Jordan Challenges, which allow you to relive the greatest moments in Michael Jordan’s career, are great fun.
NBA 2K11 is currently available for PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, PC (Win), Wii and PSP.
