How is NBA 2K13?

I've never bought a game in the series, but I'm curious to know how the game is as I would like to start playing basketball video games. Also, I'm sure you can, but can you build your own team and play with them during the regular season? Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I figured I'd ask, ya?

No you cant IIRC. You can still build a team though

The game is great. Gameplay, presentation, MyPlayer mode are all great.

How can I not create my own team but build a team? What is the difference?

Damn, that is a bummer, but I guess should be expected. Does the game allow for updated rosters to be used in the season mode? For example, if I started a season with the Raptors, would Rudy Gay be on the team?

You can make trades yourself obviously that is what I do.

yes you can, just edit which teams are in the season. i could do this 2k12, but i havent tried in 2k13. it was something like, manage teams option when starting a season/association? or something like that.

if you started it now then yes, as the rosters are updated. but if you started your season before the trade happened, then no he wouldn't.

EDIT: or like a previous poster said, just do the trade manually. Oh and all injured players right now, would NOT be injured if you started a new season/association. Example: Derrik Rose would be available for season/association, but not in an exhibition game.

Awesome, that is what I like to hear! Sounds like my dream team can come true after all! Would you guys recommend it then?

Wow, some people are really dumb. Yes, you CAN easily make your dream team. You just have to edit the rosters. Then when you make a roster you want, just save that roster, and you can start an association, season, playoffs, etc. with your created teams. You can even do this with an entire team of made up players.

As for the game, it's definitely the best basketball game since 2k11, which completely blew out the competition. The presentation is really nice, for example, they have really good commentary and the halftime show is really cool and wordy.

Plus, one of the greatest things about the 2k series is My Player, where you make your own guy, get drafted to a team, and build your career from the ground up, almost like an RPG where you spend points on certain attributes. It's really fun.
