Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

this is soooo bad!!!!!

Listen I have 2k13&14 they both sick!! There's so many glitches that the whole development team should be fired! Don't waste your money. Where do I start. Your teammates refuse to play D the other team can make impossible shots even with all five guys on them. The other team can ride u out of bounds with no consequences but your my career guy will get a foul if he does it. Your guy still gets tired even with that Gatorade pack and with a 99 stamina. Your guy can foul out at the drop of a hat but u can barley draw fouls against the opposing team. And even when u make it to the top of the NBA as I have 3 times u still might not get voted as a starter on the all star team. It took me 6 years in game to even start to win awards, fine. But even then other players who are not as good as u get more recognition and you're at the bottom looking up. And u can never ever think of going in the top 10 of the draft ever!!! They should all be fired
