2K Games To Employ 3D Face-Mapping Tech For ‘NBA 2K15’ Player Characters

After blowing out both of my knees, at least one of which is still in need of more surgical repair, I find it's safer and generally easier on my body (though not always my sanity) to drop dimes and take it strong to the rim in basketball simulations than it is to hop back on the blacktop.
