EA might be the dominant force in soccer, but 2K’s NBA series is certainly more popular than EA’s counterpart. Like other sports titles, we also get to play an NBA game every year so following the tradition, 2K has released NBA 2K16 to fulfill your basketball needs for the current year.
Overall, the game is doing fine but there are some issue that 2K needs to address soon if they don’t want to alienate their community. However, there are some workarounds and possible fixes you can try to resolve the issues you are facing.

A lot of players have been complaining that they are are unable to connect to “My Park” mode and other online modes for NBA 2K16. If that’s the case, you should try the following troubleshooting steps:
First thing you should check whether 2K servers are online or not. You can check the service status from here.
