NBA 2K11 Wishlist Before Release Date

By Daniel Chubb - Jul 12, 2010

Over the last few days we have wrote about NBA 2K11 and the Lebron James situation, and also showed you a HD image of his Heat jersey, but today we wanted to talk about your NBA 2K11 wishlist.

NBA 2K11 has a release date of October 5, 2010. The official site shows that the game will be on the iPhone and other iOS platforms, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and the main portable gaming systems. As one of the most authentic NBA video games, we expect great things from this game but what can be improved on the previous versions?

We know that NBA 2K11 features will include improved graphics and gameplay engine, a quick play mode, ability to create a custom player, an improved and deeper My Player mode, and a lot more.

One forum post on IGN looks at things that need to be fixed in 2k11, take a read of that, and then let us know your wishlist in the comments below. What bugs need to be fixed from previous versions? What features need to be added?

You can see the official TV Commercial, and the latest game screenshots here.

    In my player can you also make some of the games actually skipable and start off with a better overall as well. I found playing every game in a 82 game season ridiculous and the fact that my player starts off that made is worse. Do sometype of combine or something and depending on how good you do in that combine affects how good your player will be. Like an example is if my guy does very good in the shooting drill then he should be good at shooting, or if he does poorly in shot defense then his ability to do all that stuff should be a lower overall. That would truly make it my player and not some player I start off with that has the exact same stats as everyone else that chose my position as well as the type of player he is.

  • Avi

    To get things started make sure that Lebron does not win every single MVP for 6-9 years in a row, that is quite frustrating and he would not be able to do that in real life. In season mode if a player is really athletic but a great shooter he should either become worse when he gets around 32 or 33 because his athletism would go with age and he obviously not be able to score as easily without being able to drive in. Lebron is not a great shooter, which means he should be putting points in 30s when he is in the 30s. Also just improve the overall defense in the game, I'm tired of going into shootouts because the computers never seem to miss, even if they are well covered. Driving in also shouldn't be as easy as it is in the game, I was able to get inside the paint for a layup or dunk at will because I would simply just lose the defender, if my guy goes charging in the lane he should be well contested by a big man that's near the post player that he is defending and actually provide some help defense before it's too late.

    make the crowd more real like when i make a winning shot people jumping up and down hugging and crying. Also, make my player mode REALLY realistic like balance between one and off the court like instead of just playin games and drills , lets go even deeper like you can choose to go to the gym, meet up with your girlfriend, go to interviews, sign a shoe endorsement and customize your own shoe, get an agent,do the nba combine and accually watch you get drafted stuff that real nba players do everyday

  • anonymous

    all u people r dumb…nobody rly cares about if their hair bounces, a baggy jersey, or life-like crowds, wat this game rlly needs is a new game engine tht makes the ai much more intelligent and they need to make it so tht you cant just drive to the hoop at will with any player you choose to score every time, it should be diffecult to score and penetrate the paint…

  • w/e

    more "defense" chant versions,put the original knicks organ and overall improve crowd,chanting and more reaction from crowd when home team wins

  • Mat

    pre game warm ups in my player mode (skippable)
    player intros in my player mode (skippable)
    half time warm up in my player mode (skippable)
    abilty to see the playoff tree in my player mode

    half court passes at nba level should generally be caught by the reciever on a fast break….

  • Chris

    I agree with the walk around and drive to airport but that would be a grand theft auto NBA lol, but I think they should have warm ups and better cheering, intro and better finals celebrations.

  • mutuus

    make my player better i wuld like to actually start off n the ncaa tournament showcasing my skill then get ranked by numbers as 1st or 2nd round pick n b able to work my way up players cant really pick there team unless ur a free agent if imma rookie i should b able to go through rookie things like the draft juss think bout the madden superstar mode i want it kinda like that but in bball terms thanks

  • rodney

    it would also be better if the alley oops were better with certain people

  • rodney

    yea i wish that you can see every opponent on the team when you play defense also i wish the dunks and layups were better

  • jack

    Improve Man to Man DEFENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • taylor arnold

    nba 2k11 needs a realistic franchise mode like in real life! i only get offered trades to get bench people all year like in 2k10 because da only trades for people that matter are wen i negotiate them!and like at the trade deadline on nba.com there should be teams lookin to move big names for cap,locker room problems,etc. (for exampl vince carter,shaq wen he was traded to phoeix,and pau gasol)and i always see sign and trade deals in the offseason and i want to see them add that,bacause the only way the warriors got david lee was through sign and trade and the heat got bosh and lebron via sign and trade!(also hedo turkoglu went through sign and trade last offseason!and we should add technical fouls!and a more realistic trade deadline with teams offering big names for various reasons like they ask for people because they got hit with a big injury and also can get more than 3 things in a trade like wen the lakers got gasol the grizzlies got alotta picks and a few players and also add overseas because alot of people go overseas like josh childress and be able to keep prospects oversees like ricky rubio!please look at this!

  • Blake Lipkins

    The way players get dunked on need a little change.

  • robert

    Ability to pick the uniforms in my player mode

  • Dame

    Need to put all past champions in the game forget the draft classes we need some David robinson on spurs with Duncan we need Shaquille and Kobe we need all time teams plus the new ones game would be off the chain and get rid of turnover when u throw the ball down court

  • DTready4watevWR

    EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE IMPROVE FROM KOBE, TO THE CHARGES, TRAVELS, AND/OR BLOCKING FOULS WHEN WE PRO HOP, TECHS NEEDS TO BE CALLED AND EVERYTHING ELSE

  • DTready4watev

    NBA2K11 NEEDS TO HAVE WHERE IF YOU CREATE A PERSON YOU CAN PUT HIM ON A TEAM AND START A SEASON UP AND WHEN YOU GET READY TO PLAY, FOR EXAMPLE, A AWAY GAME YOU GET TO CONTROL YOUR PLAYER BEFORE THE GAME OR WHATEVER LIKE YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR PALYER WHEN HE GETS ON A PLANE AND IF YOU HAVE TO PACK YOUR SPORTS GEAR FOR THE GAME YOU CAN PACK IT WITH YOUR CONTROLLER AND YOU CONTROLLING YOUR MAN AND WHAT HE DECIDES TO PACK. ALSO, IF THE PLAYER THAT WE ARE CONTROLLING HAS TO GO TO PRACTICE WE CAN CONTROL HIM TO GET HIM IN THE CAR AND DRIVE THE CAR TO PARCTICE. S LIKE PLAYER LOCK BUT IF YOU WANT TO NOT PUT YOUR PLAYER ON PLAYER LOCK YOU CAN TAKE IT OFF. THESE ARE THE THINGS WE NEED ON NBA2K11 WHILE WE RE CONTROLLING OUR PLAYER, HAVE HIM TO BUY A HOUSE, LIVE AT HIS HOUSE, GO TO PRACTICE, CONTROL HIM IN THE GAME, DRIVE AROUND, AND BE MORE REALISTIC. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUT THAT ON NBA 2K11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mjdaking

      Yehh i think they did add the driveing an stuff to here but yehh superstar mode should have a virtual world where yu can make your own decisions like rreal life an stuff. But yehh shidd i seen a few clips of driveing on the game folks

  • DTready4watevWR

    NBA2K11 NEEDS TO HAVE WHERE IF YOU CREATE A PLAYER YOU CAN OUT HIM ON A TEAM AND START A SEASON UP AND FOR EX. IF YOUR PLAYER GOES ON AN AWAY GAME YOU CAN CONTROL HIM BEFORE HE GOES TO THE GAME LIKE YOU CAN DRIVE HIM TO THE AIPORT OR WHATEVER AND YOU CAN USE YOUR CONTROLLER TO MOVE HIM INSIDE THE AIRPLANE. ALSO, IF YOUR PLAYER HAS PRACTICE IN THE MORNING YOU CAN CHOSE TO WAKE HIM UP TO GO TO PRACTICE OR YOU CAN CHOSE FOR HIM TO MISS PRACTICE, BUT IF HE GOES TO PRACTICE YOU CAN PUT HIS CLOSE ON AND WALK HIM TO HIS CAR AND DRIVE THE CAR TO PRACTICE. ITS JUST LIKE HAVING YOUR PLAYER ON PLAYER LOCK BUT YOU CAN TAKE IT OFF IF YOU WANT TO. THIRD, YOU CAN BUY A HOUSE WITH THE MONEY YOU MAKE FROM PLAYING PRO BASKETBALL AND BUY A HOUSE, CAR, OR ANYTHING. THESE ARE THE THINGS WE NEED ON NBA2K11 WHEN WE ARE CONTROLLING OUR MAN, BE ABLE TO LIVE IN HIS HOUSE HE BUYS, PLAY IN THE NBA, FLY OUT TO NBA GAMES WHEN HE GOES TO PLAYS, AND OTHER THINGS THAT WE CAN DO TO CONTROL HIM BECAUSE IM TIRED OF LOOKIN AND THEM BOXES THAT POP UP AT THE MENU, SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUT THIS ON NBA2K11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • make the my player mode more real like.let it be like u go to different teams camp and then when finished u get drafted by one of those teams.have the whole draft night prenstation.but make ur player lik a 2nd round draft pick so it doesnt mess wit the upcoming draft.and b4 every game have u doin some pregame warmups wit the team.thats would be cool.ok thanks

  • Chris

    Definitely add more shoes into the game…

    My player mode should have the draft combine in it, with contract descisions, and trade requests possible. I dont want my player to be subbed on and out of a game so quickly. My player mode should also be harder to get into the starting lineup, add all-star weekend into my player mode too

  • pfig

    Give my player 1 on 1 grudge matches Like if you get into it on the court you can settle it on the blacktop

  • mathew

    1) Improve player animation smooth but not robotic.
    2) Improve Commentary dont repeat the same thing.
    3) Please add the easy select team mode, all 30 team show up at one screen, Because use LR swicth team kinda waste a time.

  • Trent

    1. No layups behind the backboard

    2. No charging calls when you are running away from your basket after an offensive rebound.

    3. No shot stick crap…I'm driving to the hope with Tyreke Evans for a dunk and just before the ball is in the net, I let my finger slip a tiny bit and he pulls the ball back down, does a full 180 in the air and throws the ball off the bottom of the rim or back of the backboard.

    4. Classic teams: Ie 80's Celts, Lakers, Pistons,76ers, Rockets, 90's Bulls, Rockets, Suns, Spurs, Jazz, Knicks, 2000s Lakers, Kings, Spurs, Mavericks, etc.?

    5. Xbox live MUST improve. It should not take 45 min to get one game started.

    6. Allow for more than one user on one xbox play in xbox live at one time.

    7. My player co-op

    8. No Russell Westbrook dribbling through an entire team for four quarters for 50 points on 22 of 26 shooting.

  • Robbie

    Also make my player online like you make your player and play others my players online and maybe make it so you and your friends could play with their my player and you could play with yours and team up and play with other and there my players WITH REAL TEAMS just get 10 my players and make a team of players. It would be better if online was more coop orientate. And have your my player getting better by playing online and have a online rank for your my player. Also have a league of you and maybe a friend and your my players and play with others and there teams and have a draft of the nba players to add on your team with your my player. Also make it so you can stick to your favourite player or you’re my player so you can feel like you’re in the game.

  • Robbie

    Make my player so you can play with a friends online and make it so you can’t dunk every time and maybe make a shot bar when you shot so if it was in the green it would go in and if in the red it would miss. Instead of just shooting it would it would make it harder and more enjoyable and if someone contest the shot or dunk or Layup the green bar would be less than the red would be more and you would have to let go when of the shot button when it was green to go in or maybe add a yellow as well for it to be a 50-50 shot. And the better the shooter the better chance it has to go in the better the penetrator the better the chances it goes in and you could do it with steels and shot blocking to

  • ROB

    make MY PLAYER COOP

  • Adam

    make lay-ups more consistent, and actually related to the player rating, not throw it up and hope for the best. one of the most frustrating things about this game.

  • Nick23

    I wish that 2K would use some of the classic Air Jordan collection in the game. Not just all team Jordan shoes. I also wish that the shape of the shoes changed depending on if they are hightop or lowtop. it seems that in 2k10 the shoe shapes were the same sizes or too big for the style. also in 2k10, there was a problem with the dunking schemes. If you wanted a dunk package in my player mode the packages would change when attribute pts were added. and most of the 360 dunks didnt work on my game. ive had it since it came out and i have never done one though i have seen the cpu do one or two. so those are my wishes.

  • I wish 2k would put the scoreboard back at the bottom..if it’s a small scoreboard I would like for it to be in the bottom right..if it’s like a bar, I would like for it to be in the middle at the bottom! plz because that would also make it look more realistic

  • Can you please take out the charging fouls while dribbling before you get to half court at least because that is really frustrating

  • I wish 2k made it easier to do fadeaways all the time with Kobe and who ever else

  • I wish 2k had a better broadcast camera view..I also want yall to add the cheap seats camera view back..and I wish u could electrify the crowd!!!!!

  • I wish 2k had an amazing crowd..and I want to be able to wear the away jerseys at home

  • I wish 2k was much much more smoother with the different combinations of moves and shots off the dribble and dunks and layups etc.
    And I wish the rim and net was more life like, like the actual rim and net in the NBA!

  • Wish 2k had the best crowd ever…I want the crowd to be so real it would give me goose bumps everytime I score late in the game or just score period..and gamewinners should make me want to cry everytime I hit one…

    • jules

      I think it would also be cool to have real life celebrities at the game. Who wouldnt want to see Jack at every Lakers game. Maybe some Kardashians at the Heat games. It wouldnt be a huge addition but its a small favor to ask and it will make it feel alot more real.

  • Jerry

    Make AI better like how human plays’ so that we’ ll rather play offline, no lag better graphics!

  • Nba Fan

    Theres only really 2 things they need to fix.

    1. Make online workable, Nba2k10s online worked about half the time which was dissapointing.

    2. Don't have your shots based on luck. Make it based on skill

    • Andy

      exactly kid!! i mean on 2k10 itakes only 2shots before finaly going in !

  • Dan

    Fix Kobe (from 2k10), his eyes and nose are wrong, his head is more oval too not round. he looks like the actor Omar epps now. Michael jordan needs to have perfect expressions, when he scowls chewing gum to when he smiles, and everything he does with his face at the line. mo cap his moves and dunks. who know when we see him in a game again. the 90's bulls basketball team, the dream team, first and last to win gold.

  • Dan

    the 90's bulls team, pippen, rodman, pac man, bj armstrong, luke longly, cartwright. Other 90's basketball teams, the Dream Team 1 and the last dream team to win gold. MJ's tongue driving the lane, his scowl in anger and his smile but they have nail his looks. Even when hes at the free throw line, his whole ritual his face with sweat. all his mo cap moves and dunks. Lord knows when Mike will be in another game again. I don't think 2k in 2k10 did a very good job with kobe, his eyes and nose are off and his head feels too round needs to be longer more oval, he looks almost like the actor Omar epps. hopefully better gameplay, i read 2k fixed the bodies and arm lengths, models were begining to look pretty stale. real looking and bouncing hair would be nice for players like Gasol, steve nash. Please fixi turning over the ball with a half court pass. Dunk contest could be super polished , would be nice to have magic and kenny smith talking feel more authentic. thats about it for now.

  • better artificial intelligence and faster paced game. and everybody intact with eachother. really make it a team game. everyone with their own assignments and really relying on eachother to win. not just one player scoring most of their teams points. and make it so the teams shoot between 40-55 % from the field. not 60-80%. Oh and make the miami heat a team that wont beat you everytime lol.

  • djay

    tech fouls..sometimes when u grab em it wnt b a foul

  • friend

    tech fouls

  • max

    get home and away color schemes for headbands, sleeves, etc. correct for once

  • adrian

    i agree with run down blocks guy that would be way better :)

    • Andy

      do you think kwame brown should be banned from 2k11 for crap blocking???

  • IT'S…ON

    MOST DEF SMALLER CLOTHS ITS WONT B RIGHT IF JORDANS GOT BAGGY CLOTHS ON THE GAME IT WOULD RUIN IT

    • deacon26

      Jordan was one of the first with baggy shorts opposed to bird and maic and so forth

    • Andy

      got that right

  • IT'S…ON

    LEBRONS RUN DOWN BLOCK I HATE 2K10 BLOCKS

  • joe

    More authenic/detalied arenas and specific chant and sound sform each nba stadium

    • Jeo

      right more realism to the game. Different referees becuase they have the same one in every game. Better crowd atmosphere. Update commentary or change it up alot. Very detail arenas and add specific audio from each arena. Ex: lakers, cavaliers, celtics, knicks and etc.
