NBA Live 14 sinks lower than I ever thought this once-proud series could go. Making the totally fair comparison to NBA 2K14 would be like LeBron James playing a pickup game against an arthritic giraffe. But even taken in isolation, the resurrected NBA Live is a mess of a hoops sim both in your hands and in your eyes that would not even make the D-League All-Star team. In fact, there is only one thing about NBA Live that is better than its competitor: the net. Yes, that one thing is the net, and it is the best net I have ever seen in a basketball game. There, I said something nice.
