  • Amazing Game But.....

    by Gmc fresh

    I love this game but it crashes SO MUCH! I can't play for 1 minute and then it crashes! Please fix this!!

  • Good game, but crashes

    by Jet6364

    I was very excited to get this game. I started a multiseason and I played the first game and won but before I got back to the main menu it crashed. I had to play the same game and I came back from a 14 point deficit and won, but once again it crashed. Now I can't even start a game anymore before it crashes. If the game didn't crash I would have rated it 5 star. Please fix these issues. Thanks!!

  • It crashes

    by jjfoley1

  • Great game but a major flaw

    by scott belliveau

    This game is really fun and all but about 2/3 of the quick play games don't ask me which set of controls to use. It just goes straight to the game and when I am in the game there are no buttons to press I'm practically spectating

  • All right

    by $SWEET$

    The gameplay is great but graphics seriously need to be fixed. I love this game but the graphics are a bit rough.

  • Awesome

    by N.B.A. Basketball

    Best app ever. Easy controls ,announcer , and more than 5 players on court.

  • Good, No Crashing, Fun!

    by I, iPod

    I waited to buy this game until now because of the problems with iOS 7 compatibility. I bought it yesterday and have played about 4 games, no crashing, lag, or glitches. I took a chance buying this because I didn't know if the problem was fixed, but to my delight, it was. I highly recommend this game, even though it's a year old and some rosters are outdated.

  • Worth 0 stars

    by Patriots win Superbowl

    This is unacceptable. I open up the app, go to quick game, and as soon as they set up for the jump ball,BANG, it crashes. Just like that! This happened on only the 2nd day I had the app.2k, I don't know what drill you're running here but if I were you, I'd fix it before more and more people start spending $3.00 on an app that doesn't even work! And, if I delete the app, i SHOULD get my money back, but... NO THAT WOULD BE 3 BUCKS 2K SPORTS DOESNT END UP WITH!!! I was thinking about getting 2k 14 instead, but... $8.00 is what it costs for an app that might work as bad as this one. 2K SPORTS IM DONE W/ YOU!!!
