We destroyed the NBA's future with a video game | Fumble Dimension Episode 1

  • Published: 17 September 2019
  • What happens when you give NBA 2K the worst draft class possible year... after year... after year? This show is a journey into a realm where sports are distorted beyond reason, impossible ideas are tested, and artificial intelligences are forced to reckon with a world that no longer makes any sense.

          Do you think maybe Buckner purposely just kept shooting badly just so he could grab his own rebounds and waste time?

                                                                                  Making all the players short nullifies a height advantage. It'd be more interesting if you kept height ranges or made the shortest player your centers and the tallest your guards. Basketball is NOT a tall persons sport. It is a relative height sport, especially one on one (but some skilled streetballers like the Professor can make breakfast out of much taller players). And furthermore, as a team sport the height advantage gets substantially diluted. I consider it kind of insulting the implying that just making everyone on the court short makes for incompetent basketball. All it does is it makes for slam dunk'less basketball (even though some players in the low 5 feet can dunk the ball), and slam dunks define basketball to kids, not true lovers of the sport.

                                                                                  • David Strain

I know he’s joking but it makes me cringe everytime he try’s to invoke a laugh from his co host who wants nothing to do with it

                                                                                      You should have named him "unty crap face", so the "C" (which I assume means "Center", but I don't know much about basketball; football is more to my liking.) finishes the name for you. I wonder if that would have gotten by the bad word detector that I suspect is implemented in this game. Or even just "rap face" so the "C" could finish that too.
