Well, I don't see it as a bad thing. Take a copy of, say, NBA 2k5. Now take one of NBA 2k8, or in a couple of weeks or so, NBA 2k9. Is it the same game? No, it's not only the rosters, the game engine is improved each year, made more realistic, and with more features.
Yes, it is usually just an update, and they get to charge you again for about 80% the same game. However, I'm not sure if they would do a game each year, there aren't that many fights and roster changes each year as in the other major sport titles. But then you had Tiger Woods 09...
