New classic teams
Many fans have requested to bring back some of the most iconic teams of the past decade. 2K sports never disappoints. Below are some of the new classic teams that will be featured on NBA 2K16:
2000-2001 Los Angeles Lakers
This was the time when Kobe and Shaq were on the top of the powers. Get ready to get your hands on this new classic Lakers team. This team was so dominant that they completely steamrolled opponents in the 2001 NBA playoffs (15-1 NBA best playoff record).
Their only loss in the playoffs came in Game 1 of the 2001 NBA(click NBA 2k coins ) finals where Allen Iverson scored 48 points and single-handedly carried the underdog 76ers team to a 107-101 overtime win. Now, you can reminisce such great NBA final performances by playing the 2001 76ers team with this 2001 lakers team!
2003-2004 Detroit Pistons
Do you remember the time when the highly favored 2004 lakers super team that featured Karl Malone, Shaq, Gary Payton, and Kobe where literally annihilated by this defensive-oriented underdog team? Today, NBA fans will be able to reminisce how great their run was in 2004.
They had 2 defensive elites in Ben Wallace (2x defensive player at that time) and Tayshaun Prince, a decent midrange shooter in Rip Hamilton, a decent 3 point shooter who can also bang it down low in Rasheed Wallace, and a great floor leader who can hit big shots during crunch time in Chauncey Billups (who eventually became the NBA finals MVP that year).
2007-2008 Houston Rockets
Tracy Mcgrady was one of the most frequently created players in NBA 2K. Thankfully, 2K sports has recognized such trend. In NBA 2K16, players will now be able to play one of the most creative and prolific scorers in NBA history since the 2008 Houston Rockets will be playable in this game. Can’t get enough of Tracy Mcgrady? You can also play his young and high-flying version (together with his cousin Vince Carter) since the game also features the 1999-2000 Toronto Raptors.
MyCareer mode has been greatly improved. According to 2K sports, such mode will be more dramatic since it will be directed by Spike Lee. According to him, the journey to the NBA will be much longer since you’ll start as a top-high school prospect who dreams of playing it big in the NBA.
The game also features the NBA summer league. There are actually two types of summer leagues in this game: The actual NBA summer league and NBA 2K sports summer league.
Your team will be invited to play in one these 2 leagues before the official NBA season begins. This is the best time to test those undrafted players. You’ll also get to have a preview of how your draft picks will be able to perform in regular season games.
NBA 2K16 also features SimCast Live. In this new feature, players will be able to simulate at different speeds (real-time to 6x) and watch the games being played (players are identified by avatar representations) at the same time.
