On Wednesday, 2K Sports announced the United States Men’s Basketball team and the Original Dream Team would be included in this year’s game.
OAKLAND, CA – JULY 26: The United States Men’s National Basketball Team stands together during the playing of the National Anthem prior to playing the China Men’s National Team in a USA Basketball showcase exhibition game at ORACLE Arena on July 26, 2016 in Oakland, California.
Head coach Mike Krzyzewski is even included with a full head and body scan.
As a pre-order bonus, the original 1992 Dream Team that won gold in Barcelona, Spain will make its second appearance. The team was also included in NBA 2K13.
Many were wondering if Hall of Famers Charles Barkley and Scottie Pippen would be included, because both were late additions to NBA 2K13.
That was quickly confirmed by NBA 2K Social Media Manager Ronnie Singh aka Ronnie 2K:
This information comes in on the heels of intel that revealed the Australian National Team would also be included in game. It would appear these teams will be part of a larger mode, but that has yet to be confirmed.
As of now, we still haven’t seen any screenshots or footage of the new game. Some were expecting new media considering it releases on September 20 (on the 16th for those who pre-order), but that hasn’t surfaced.
