Why Fans do not seem Enthused with the new roster Update?
Fans of NBA 2K15 has shown their annoyance with the roster update asking why many features have not been fixed yet. One fan commented on the official Twitter post saying he wants to see "custom shoes" instead of the roster updates. And another said that he stopped playing the game after he realised that he could not change the sneakers in MyCareer mode. There were also complaints on the "sluggish reaction time" in the game and another said these updates do not have any effect on the "360 ratings, accessories, shoe patches and teams."

The Game of Thrones Spoiler in Game for Cultural Relevance
A report in GameSpot highlighted a strange discovery in NBA 2K15, a game that deals with professional basketball. It said the game contained spoilers for the popular TV drama on HBO, The Game of Thrones. It was found in the game's MyGM mode.
A Reddit thread on the event raised many eyebrows. Followers of the show might have to be careful next time they play NBA 2K15.

2K Games Lessen Trash Talk
Washington Wizards' Paul Pierce recently said that younger NBA players do not indulge in too much of trash talk because of NBA 2K games.
So they tend to take all their frustration on the computer instead of each other, opined Mark Media, writer for LA Daily News.
Though there is plenty of trash talk in the games too, it does not get spilled over to other social networking sites or media and stays within the game, reported GameInformer.
