There is a clear reason as to why we don't have more.
EA Devs can't figure out how to incorporate abilities without the game crashing.
They decided to push stat boosts over anything else this season, and even tried to convince everyone that stat boosts applied regardless of bench positioning are called "abilities" and the same boosts are called "bench boosts" when on the bench.
Alot of issues we're seeing this season, including delayed Masters, delayed achievements, and a weak start to the game are all due to developmental issues.
Personally I've never been a fan of abilities and have always wanted them gone. I'm usually alone in this position though. I'd rather they work on making the game more realistic, allow us to set screens, choose offensive strategies when inbounding the ball etc.
I always thought it'd be cool if we eventually got program coaches that had special abilities that allowed teams to run set plays, like PnR's, DHO's, etc. Definitely not getting my hopes up on that though.
An ankle breaker would be nice but only if that's all it does and you have to make the shot because we already have buzzer beater, clutch, in the paint (not yet) and we don't need more guaranteed shots
