We destroyed the NBA's future with a video game | Fumble Dimension Episode 1

  • Published: 17 September 2019
  • What happens when you give NBA 2K the worst draft class possible year... after year... after year? This show is a journey into a realm where sports are distorted beyond reason, impossible ideas are tested, and artificial intelligences are forced to reckon with a world that no longer makes any sense.

            unfortunate they didn't simulate some seasons with just 40s. to see if there's any consistency with championships or MVPs and what stats they have.

                            It took them that long to knock down the regular NBA to the WNBA's current skill level. Fascinating 🙃

                                                Referees taller than the players? Likely will happen in a game involving preteen children.

It's basically a non existent fluff stat the changes nothing. But since it's there it effects your OVR. I'd make a custom player with a lot of major stat categories in the 80s-90s but turn intangibles all the way down. That way the OVR was still low to mid 70s and I could draft even if I wind up with the 7th pick or so. Basically, you can draft a young MJ/LBJ way late. Probably other ways to use it but that's what I was doin in 2k17
