I've been playing and learning 3rd Strike legit. There's a group of guys I meet up with who all play 3S religiously. Also, have a good 7 or 8 people I can play 3S with online at almost any time. I really love the freedom of movement and pacing the game has. I want to learn Alex and Oro before too much longer, but going from knowing almost nothing to playing legit vets who've played since the game came out is tough, but I still manage to hold my own for the most part.
Also, the Kobe's game 'evolving' idea is pure bullshit, he's just finally passing the ball and he's never done that in his entire career so of course it's going to work. That'd be like Shaq raining 3's, of course it works for a couple of games, he's never done it before. The Lakers managed to win 3 games and all of a sudden niggas is like 'HERE COMES A CHAMPIONSHIP!'
