Okay, so it isn't realistic. But it's civil, right?
According to Polygon , 2K Sports has confirmed that swearing in NBA 2K14 will earn you a technical foul.
In an effort to create a "more civilized online environment," you will be penalized if the PlayStation Camera or Kinect catches you using profanity when playing the game. There was a rumor about this after YouTube user "randomfrankp" posted a video proving that his cursing was indeed penalized in-game with a technical foul. Now, in reality, a referee can call a technical foul on a coach or player for unsportsmanlike conduct, and that can include the use of profanity on the court. Of course, swearing is still a big part of the game.
It'll be interesting to learn what the game considers "swearing" but the 2K representative confirmed that "the obvious ones are there." Wanna try?
