NBA 2k17 has hit our shores and everyone is excited.
Many people will use Golden State (cheating in my opinion), but I dare say the 2nd most used team in Australia may very well be Philadelphia. Ben Simmons makes his NBA 2k debut and I think a lot of people will be intrigued to see if he can be as dominant as using the likes of LeBron James heading to the rim!
Simmons will be the highest rated Australian player in the game (not including Kyrie as one of our own here) with a rating of 79. I believe that rating has the potential to skyrocket if this kid can develop a knock down jumper, and will be impossible to guard with his ability to get to the rim!
Another team that’ll be pretty high on everyone’s radar will be the Milwaukee Bucks. Featuring 2 Aussies on the roster (Delly and Thon Maker) this team is one of the biggest mysteries in the upcoming NBA Season. They were disappointing last season no doubt. But the addition of Delly (a championship winner this past season), and the uncertainty of Thon Maker make this team a real intriguing one.
Fresh off the back of news the Greek Freak (Giannis Antetokounmpo) has signed a 4 year $100Million deal this week, this team is moving in the right direction. The length they have, coupled with the youth of this team makes them one of my top 2k selection picks!!
Delly has a rating of 75, and no surprise has a hustle rating of 98! A ridiculous number but one that we really all can’t question, as no one plays with more heart than this kid!
We do have a lot of others in this game (Baynes, Mills, Ingles, Bogut etc.) who are all rated around the 75 point mark, which means we can compete highly by using the Boomers for the first time ever in the 2k series!
Having multiple NBA Players on this roster, we will not be easy beats in the game, and will make it pretty fun to play with. Especially for those boys in the NBL, taking part in a worldwide game is pretty cool considering we don’t have a NBL Live game. Taking on the Original Dream Team with our current Boomers will be pretty fun also!
All in all I’m pretty excited to get onto this game, challenge a few of my mates with the Boomers and get the “My Career Mode” going ballin away with my boy Michael B Jordan!
Fun times ahead for 2k gamers, meaning the countdown is on till the season begins! We are only a little over a month away and no doubt the excitement is building!!
Would be great to hear who you will be lining up with this season!!
