Ouch. What was the best NBA2K year for PCs? It seems Windows ports have issues every year.

Id say 2010 for gameplay and 2k12 for the teams (dream team!)
2010 was a good year for Lakers.

As a laker lifer, i cant find fault with that entire year.
Let's hope they make a big comeback for the next season!

If we have kobe for 3/4 the year then we'll grab 8th seed and cause a few espn analysts some heart attacks.
Well, Kobe is old and getting hurt a lot and long times to recovery. Lakers need new young good players like him.

Did BN ever get DDoSed?

Well, yes and no. We were not the targets (AFAIK), but we were victims of one of the original DOS attacks on the Internet when the site was still on Panix.com, as Panix suffered a massive attack in late 1996 that prompted us to move to our own domain. Panix was apparently targeted due to their activism on behalf of the EFF.

Found an article on it. According to Cisco, this was *the* original denial of service:

The first DoS attack occurred against Panix, the New York City area's oldest and largest Internet Service Provider (ISP), on September 6, 1996, at about 5:30 p.m. [14]. The attack was against different computers on the provider's network, including mail, news, and Web servers, user "login" machines, and name servers. The Panix attack was a SYN Flood attack deriving from random IP addresses and directed toward server Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) ports. More specifically, Panix's computers were flooded by, on average, 150 SYN packets per second (50 per host), so Panix could not respond to legitimate requests [15]. Because the attackers used spoofed source IP addresses intraffic their packets, the addresses could not be traced and malicious could not be filtered. For that reason the attack was not immediately confronted. The solution was to use a special structure, instead of full Transmission Control Block (TCB), to hold half-open connections until the last ACK packet was received. In that way, the listen queue was large enough to keep all the SYN requests before the half-open connection timed out. The timeout, on the other hand, was adjusted to 94 seconds [16]. However, although Panix overcame this attack, the new threat (DoS attacks) made administrators worry.
Ah, thanks.

The game improved over the beta?

Yes.

They have added various features since the original beta, including a new team death-match mode know as Flight Club.

The game is also a lot more stable than it was in beta.
Cool and thanks. I will have to check it out again one day!

Or a PDA, that doesn't require a phone, on my wrist like Casio Data Bank 150/300 watches.

And anyway, I'm willing to bet that the majority of people participating in such "beta tests" are only interested in getting to play the game earlier, not actually providing feedback... I'll be skipping it, too, though. Not really into beta testing story-based RPGs.
It is like a free sample. I do this too. I do report issues if I run into them.
