Installer / Game Works Tested on:
Debian Wheezy X64
Install without problems in plain Wine 1.7.3
I have used this options to increase my performance
GLSL - disabled (in this version we can disable it that will not affect the color..so more fps)
Direct Draw Renderer - opengl
Video Memory - 1024 (your graphic card memory)
Offscreen Render - pbuffer
Multisampling - disabled
Menu Works fine
What does not
Sound don't work out of the box but just install:
And sound is working, if still don't work try to add dotnet 2.0 and dsound.
Another thing that don't work is the online mode, if you try to register will ask you to register every time you start the game, that's because your CD KEY, username and password will not enter the regedit, you can force it in clear text on:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\2K Sports\NBA 2K14]
Adding 2 strings USERNAME and PASSWORD
The registration issue in the beginning is gone but still you can't go online even if you import the regedit encrypted keys from windows, that's because certopenstore is not well implemented on Wine and you will not be able to authenticate against the 2K servers.
Any doubt just raise a comment bellow.
