    I mentioned in the NBA 2k7 Thread that when I actually got the game I was thinking of setting up an online league (a cool feature in the 2K sports games), there were a few people that said they would be interested. My copy arrived today so I have set one up.

    Search for the league called AVForum. To enter the league you will have to user the password 'avf123'. As I have no idea how popular (if at all) this will be I set the league up with 12 spaces available, I have taken one and chosen Boston Celtics as my team.

    Feel free to join the league and post any questions here. If it is successful and more people want to join we can expand the league to have more teams. The first one is more of a test to see if there is any interest.

    All games will be played with 4 minute periods, I think we can change this if we decide it is not long enough.

    Look forward to playing you!!



    Players that have signed up so far:

    Bojanglez - Celtics
    Winchy85 - Mavericks
    evertonbaz - Pistons
    DeanoT - Bulls
    Razzler - Suns
    funny-monkey - Spurs
    p_eepingtom - Knicks
    TonyTheGeek - Wizards
    DelBoySmith - Heat
    marknewham - Clippers
    AQU4RIUS_UK - nuggets
    Darsh19 - Caviliers

    All 12 places for the first season have now been taken.

    Yeah, that is why I only have a small number of teams now, when everyone has played it a bit more I assume more people will want to join.

    Is this game crap? as i've seen it for 24.99 at Gamestation and thought that it must be crap as nearly all their other games were 49.99 or 39.99.

    No it is quality, it is £17.99 on play.com. Have no idea why it is going for so cheap, maybe a new one is coming out in a few months?

    It's by no means crap. It's the best basketball game around and one of the better games on the PS3. It may be going cheap as American sports games for the most part are not that popular here. Also 2K games in general tend to price their games lower in order to compete against EA who are their main rivals. You can get NHL 2K7 for the same price.

    Thanks. I will be buying it and joing the league, although, it should be noted that the last time I played a basketball game was on the supernes. I have always loved them though.

    Don't worry too much about that I played 6 games last night, won 2 lost the rest on Pro, but I have learned the controls now. The most annoying thing about the game/controls is the menu system and having to move the R3 stick to access it.

    I found the best thing to do is not try too hard to defend, to start with I was trying to steal the ball all the time and gave away loads of fouls. Now I just back off the player and force them into passing or making a poor long range shot.

    Anybody else find the free-throws hard using the tilt? I like the concept of using it, just seems really random how each player has a different sweet spot to hit before releasing it.

    When I get back from work, I will check to see who has joined the league and post everyones tag and the team they selected on the first post.

    I think that once you sign up you should see all the gamertags in the league's list anyway, but I suppose if people are arranging when to play on here it is best to put it all here too.

    I think we are all gonna be ****, so at least it should be competitive. I will be on tonight if anyone is up for a game. Not sure if it will let the league begin until all places are taken, but we will see.

    Just tried to find the league but I couldn't :thumbsdow This is an annoying trend with online PS3 games, you only get to play with people that have the same region console/game as you do.
