★★★★★ Newbie

Again. Rising star. My player goes up for a free throw and the game freezes. EA, will you please fix this? This has been a repeating problem throughout the past years in your games. All i can do it restart the game. lose all progress.

Same here. Happens in franchise with a player I drafted it seems. Free throw bar never fills and the player is frozen. If I have to shoot 2 free throws the referee never returns the ball. If it's just one the player is frozen until stoppage in play. (ie. Timeout or other stoppage.) Happened with the same player even after I restarted.

Does anyone at EA actually look at this because it’s rediculous that this is still going on after all this time. You know how frustrating as a user to be a minute away from completing a game and you have to restart because a game freezes?

And I’ve identified exactly what causes it to freeze. Pressing pause while it’s on a free throw animation. Once you do that it’s a wrap.

This is still a thing. Happened multiple times to me so far when either one of my teammates or my player goes for a free throw and the game is paused it freezes the game. But sometimes you have to press pause after a shot is made and don’t think about a foul being called. In NBA 2K the game saves mid game progress that you can jump back into. It would be nice to have that here just in case something happens. Especially if it’s a local game, there’s no reason to not have an autosave feature.
