NBA 2K21 Modders Are Delivering An Enhanced Experience For PC Users

As I await the enhanced experience 2K is promising with its next-gen presence, I’ve been delving even deeper into the NBA 2K21 PC world. While there are certain aspects of the vast 2K universe that the PC environment will never be able to duplicate (top-level online competition) the offline experience is unmatched.

One of the biggest reasons for the gap in offline play is the use of mods from the talented 2K modding community. These guys work fast, and many of them are exceptionally talented.

Rytis Gineika aka R4zor and Johnathan Smith aka JaoSming have already come from these communities to work for 2K, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see more join the big club.

Whether you’re looking for insane and updated renders like the one above of LeBron James, which was created by James 23, or a completely recreated NBA

Reliance’s sketchy record of delivering returns to partners

The Money Culture, Michael Lewis’s 1991 book on Wall Street excesses of the 1980s, brought to the mainstream a wordplay on ‘OPM’: other people’s money. It derided the practice of large corporations using the money of other companies and investors to make leveraged buyouts. Continents away, an Indian company was being lauded for imbibing OPM in its original form: operating profit margin. Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), as it was created and kept by founder Dhirubhai Ambani, aimed to implement projects on scale and break even at the operating level as fast as possible.
