    JerzeyReign or anyone else - anybody heard any news or insight on what this mode will or will not entail in NBA 2k12?

    Official insight will be out this week, along with a presentation insight and a shoe insight I think. From leaked sources, OA allows CPU opponents and is basically a close resemblance of its offline counterpart. The leaked videos get taken down too quickly for me to see for myself but from some of the comments I've read OA looks good.

    This is sounding great. One detail i wanna see is if the commish can import whatever roster on his HDD to the OA ala what using updated rosters in an NCAA OD.

    I hope 2K took the NCAA model for rosters into this game type (minus all the fucking up of course)

    Let's not get too greedy. If the association mode is with CPU teams, has multiple seasons with drafts and free agency we should chalk that up as a victory. Customized rosters is a bit much to ask for when they've never had a mode like this previously, in my opinion.

    And, to squash any rumors that normally start on a certain EA fanboy site with no name at this time, free agents are in the game. Also, @LBFitted brought up a great idea on another forum for 2k to put rookies in the game as generics. Hopefully, that can make its way to 2k Ronnie and that can happen. Then all we (or roster editors) have to do is change the names and call it a day.

    The following blurb is included in the 2k12 manual - which was released today.

    Nothing in there about multiple seasons, but this would confirm that there are CPU teams and trades. I'm a little worried about the comment "your season progresses in real-time"....hopefully that doesn't mean you only play one season and it progresses as the real life NBA schedule does.

    "The Association: Online

    Form your own online NBA league with up to 29 other gamers, and make GM decisions from your computer or console. Make trades and schedule games online. Your season progresses in real-time; scheduled games are simulated when you can’t be present. Receive regular email updates that keep you connected to your team 24/7/365."
