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.
Keep yor eyes on our site. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
Since the release day have been revealed, NBA 2K17 gamers are looking forward to its new features. Obviously, NBA 2K17 Games has the licenses for several colleges. According to this point, we might be seeing some new teams in NBA 2K17. 2KTV’s Rachel Demita visited 2K headquarters to know more about the new features that we can expect to see in NBA 2K17. She managed to talk with Scott O’ Gallagher who is the gameplay producer for the NBA 2K series. Gallagher revealed that there are three new retro teams that will be in the game.
There are only allowed to reveal three teams that will be in NBA 2K17. First, the ’99-’00 Toronto Raptors team will be added. This is when Vince Carter was in his prime. Another popular team in the game is the 2008 Boston Celtics. This team was stacked with Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and a young Rajon Rondo. Lastly, the Los Angeles Lakers from 2001 will be in the game. This is when Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’ Neal were dominant.
Free agency is just about here, and despite teams preparing for this for years, no one knows what is about to happen. This is always a crazy time of year, but with the salary cap ballooning to $94 million, almost everybody is going to have a ton of money to spend. Spacing. Spacing. Spacing. – I don’t know what it is, but the court in this year’s game feels small. Whenever you feed the ball into the post, the perimeter defenders are instantly there and steal the ball from the post. On the contrary, whenever you kick it out to a wide opener shooter, it feels like the defender immediately recovers and contests the shot.
The spacing needs to be better in 2K17, so you can actually use the post. Adding college teams to the MyPlayer mode will make it more realistic. Your player will have to look good in college and then get drafted like it happens in real life. It’s worth mentioning teams might be included, but licensing issues may not mean college players will be in NBA 2K16.
However, college basketball is one area the NBA 2K series has never explored. They’ve added teams from the past and some from the European league in the past couple of years. This year’s game could be a small step to adding actual college teams and players. The Season 2 Finale of NBA 2KTV aired this week and some small new features were announced for the upcoming NBA 2K17 video game. Some of these features have been included in past video games. Host Rachel Demita interviewed Ronnie.
Ability to catch to steals – I know I’m not the only one. You read a pass perfectly and jump it to steal the ball. Your players jump in front of the pass and instead of catching it, your player tips it out of bounds and it’s still the opposing team’s ball. I stated this in last year’s wishlist and was saddened to know that it was back in this year’s game. These are professional athletes. They should be able to steal passes. Moreover, there are a lot of fans who want to see Green in the cover art of “NBA 2k17.” In fact, after 2K Sports made the reveal of Irving’s addition to the cover.
Above mentioned is the new team what we know so far. More information follow us.
NBA 2K17 is coming soon. The September 20th is a little less than two months. Or to say different: about eight weeks. Then we will have in our hands the fresh, brand new, revamped NBA 2K17!
New game, improved graphics, new features and above all updated roster. Which teams are looking forward to play?
THE TOP-5 OF PICKANDROLL.GR
1. GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
For no. One does not fit the debate! Golden State Warriors with Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Clay Thompson and Ntreimont Greene. He is so good, that many say will be … unfair to the opponent. But who wants to try them at least once?
2. NEW YORK KNICKS
It is one of the traditional forces of the NBA and this year returns for good. Rose and Noah came “package” of Chicago to meet with Carmelo and excellent Kristaps Porzingkis that madness world in his rookie season.
3. BOSTON CELTICS
Since last year the Celtics was a highly entertaining team with many rolistes several solutions. Plus, with Al Chorfornt to dominate under the baskets, the Isaia Thomas organize and Kraounter a complementary role, not lacking anything!
4. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS
Can the champions so far have not made any big movement, but the presence of LeBron-Irving-Love enough to turn Cavaliers in group bugbear.
5. CHICAGO BULLS
The Rose is the past, but the Bulls added to the five two high level players: the Ntoueint Wade and Razon Rondo. This Rondo-Wade-Butler in the region does not sound bad, right?
