This latest developer diary for NBA 2K13 focuses on the game's animation systems. NBA 2K, as a series, relies on its outstanding animation to deliver a complete basketball experience more than you'd think. Since the beginning, the ability to "take the lane" and attack the rim has felt and looked best in 2K because of the connection between control and the fluidity of player movement. Things like the sense of momentum and a player gathering before leaving his feet are all communicated by a convincing animation sequence that's smooth coming and going.

For 2K13, those animations have been refined and polished once again. Watch this clip and you'll know how.
