NBA Live 14 returned after a three-year hiatus (a hiatus mostly inflicted by 2K10’s drubbing of Live 2010) only to immediately be widely ridiculed by the Internet, mostly due to the game's laughably poor graphics:

Many wondered if that game's missteps would spell the end of the Live series, but EA Sports isn’t about to give up that easily. They’re hard at work on NBA Live 15, and the crew unveiled news that they’re going around meeting with every NBA team in order to better capture players faces.

You can see the video of the EA crew explaining the process -- as well as behind the scenes footage of the scans, on the Celtics' official website.
