    79 three is kind of suspect for James Worthy, but other than that, pretty good.

    Loved his card last year

    If you just glance at this card and his Amy from last year that’s how you know 18 was an ass game (I get it was put in later in the year but still)

    0

    that card was also a 95 overall tho

    -27

    18 was better than 19.

    Ur stupid. All u have to do in 18 is get a blowby. Only bums liked 18.

    -8

    all u have to do in 19 is get 5 cheesy shooters and spam 3's

    yeah i know thats what u kids like so enjoy your 2k19.

    Not true...if you are good at the game you can actually play defense unlike last year where you 5-out and get a blowby every possession/zigzag.

    I like the locker codes but I hate the "Price Is Right" style plinko game to get them.

    Remember when Ralph Sampson and Othell Wilson killed UNC

    My dude half this board isn’t old enough to be alive for Ralph in the NBA, let alone remember him in college. But yeah he was a goat in college

    College>NBA

    -1

    Debatable

    -4

    No debate, college is a lot more entertaining than the NBA

    5

    In college players are only in the league for 4 years, and most of the top talent is there for 1-2 so you’re watching a new group of guys every couple of years. Most top teams their schedule is boring with very few games against other top teams until march madness. And the NBA is higher quality bball with better players, and it’s a league where players can grow a legacy. Who’s the last great college player with a legacy?

    7 hours and no response, have you done the impossible @gobles ?

    -4

    -More upsets
    -More Cinderella stories
    -Not just a player's sport
    -Like 15 title contenders every year
    -Little room for error (If you fuck up in the NCAA tournament then it's over)
    -More parity
    -Little to no superteams (When they do form, they typically fail and don't last long)
    -The bonus rule in college is better
    -Contrasting styles (Some teams may play traditional basketball, while others press, and others do nothing but shoot 3s)
    -Games are usually shorter
    -More fan involvement (Court stormings, Gameday, student sections, etc.)
    -New batch of great players every year
    -Regular season games mean more (In the NBA, a 50 point win against the Warriors and a 1 point win against the Nets mean the exact same)

    1

    -March madness format does allow for more upsets, Cinderella stories but having everything be one game it doesn’t allow rivalries to form, or for great series to happen, lebron’s chip in Cleveland wouldn’t have been as great of a finals if it was just one game.
    -It isn’t JUST a players sport but it mostly is, even at the college level games are labeled as Zion and RJ Barrett go up against...
    - you say that college doesn’t have superteams but duke, nova, and Kentucky make up a majority of the appearances in the final 4 and finals
    -games being shorter doesn’t make it better, unless games start getting as long as baseball.
    - new batch of great players each year for college then go to the nba and play with all of the other great batches of players over the last 10 years, creating a greater concentration of talent.
    - Regular season games don’t mean more in college, Duke beat a team by more than double and no one batted an eye.
    -More fan involvement is debatable
    -College is not better than the pros for thier bonus rule
    - are you sure there is more parity
    - nba teams have contrasting styles as well (warriors ball movement, rockets iso, lakers trying to resurrect showtime, grizzlies slow and Grindy game)

    -1

    -You do bring up a good point about the rivalries (Even though colleges despise the other college that knocked them out of the tournament). However, that being said, the NCAA tournament does eliminate boring drawn out series between two overmatched teams. If a team is overmatched in the NCAA tournament then it is a swift 2 hour game and the winning team moves on. In the NBA, a boring series will be drawn out for a good 10 hours of game time. Also, to me, a cinderella story in the NBA doesn't have the magic like a college one does because at one point in that franchises career, they were the top dogs in the league. While in college, these seemingly unknown schools (like Furman or UMBC) who have never accomplished anything in their schools existence, shock the basketball world with their stories.

    -In college you need a good coach as much as you need good players. Hell, a good coach can still create a good team with lackluster talent. Take Virginia last year who, talent wise was mediocre. A team who had one borderline 5 star on their roster and an NBA player who only showed up on draft sites near the end of the year. That team went 31-3, 17-1 in the best conference in the nation, one of the best regular seasons of the past 5 years, and the #1 overall rank. And sure they didn't do well in the tournament, but they had one of the best coaches in the country on their side and they were able to accomplish these feats due to Tony Bennetts amazing coaching. Except for Uconn in 2014, there has never been a college team that won the title with a mediocre coach, however, there have been examples in college of great coaches taking mediocre teams to a title (2016 Villanova). I'm gonna end this off by saying this (and keep in mind this is all from experience), who gets the loudest ovation at UVA games? Their coach. Who gets the loudest ovation at Duke games? Their coach. However in the NBA the loudest ovations go to the players and not the coach.

    -There is a statistic website that has graded teams since the 1990s. They have only labelled 5 teams as superteams in that time span (and half of them didn't even win the championship). Their have been more superteams in the NBA in the past 10 years than in college in the past 28 years.

    -See, to me, NBA games drag on to long. There is only an 8 minute difference between college and NBA games and man do those extra 8 minutes feel like an eternity. Games in the NBA typically last about 2 and a half hours while a college game barely cracks 2. Hell, there was a game between Virginia and Wisconsin (2 ranked teams) that went from 2:00 to 3:30. While this point is subjective, I do think that NBA games drag on way too much and that colleges time is perfect.

    -Having the same player be the face of the league for 10 years will inevitably get very stale and very boring. Lebron, KD, and Curry have been the face of the NBA for the past 4 years. Believe me, that is BORING! In college there is a fresh face as the face of college basketball every year. Zion, Trae Young, Lonzo, Buddy, every year there is a new face of the league and that keeps things refreshing

    -No, regular season games mean a lot more than the NBA. In college there are things called good wins and bad losses. If you beat Duke by 50 then you can ride that win all the way through the season. However if you barely beat a team like Hartford than that could be a detriment to your teams chances of making it to the tournament. Last year UNC lost to Wofford at home and I believe that the loss to Wofford was a big reason why they didn't get a 1 seed. In the NBA, there are no bad losses or good wins, it's just oh you went 50-32? PLAYOFFS!

    *(Keep in mind the only NBA experience I've had is Wizards games)
    -No not at all, the NBA doesn't come close to college when it comes to fan involvement. Signs mocking the other team (I'm talking about a wall of these signs and not just a casual NBA fan with a sign), court stormings, etc. Just watch a College Basketball gameday show if you think that NBA crowds are more involved than college crowds (I recommend a gameday at Virginia)

    -There is no debate that the 1 and 1 rule results in a greater likely hood of classic games is obvious. The fact that a missed foul shot is essentially a turnover makes better and closer games is just straight fact

    -The last time a college team won back to back titles is Duke in 1991 and 1992. In that timespan for the NBA there has been 4 back to backs and three 3 peats

    -This point for me is largely flawed as I didn't take into accounts the playing styles of NBA teams. However what I meant by contrasting styles is that in todays NBA the slowest teams are playing faster than the fastest team in 2013. In college however, trends don't die and instead of teams trying to become more modern like in the NBA, teams result in playing their same old ways. Every play style you named, a college team has it, however no NBA presses and no NBA teams plays slower basketball than the elite college basketball teams.
