NBA 2K17 will include USA National team
2016 and 1992 USA Basketball Men's National teams will appear in the game
2K today announced a partnership with USA Basketball that will bring the full roster of the 2016 USA Basketball Men’s National Team, including coach Mike Krzyzewski, to NBA 2K17.
Fans who pre-order NBA 2K17 will receive the legendary 1992 USA Basketball “Dream Team”, along with a special USA Basketball MyPLAYER jersey to fully customize their USA Basketball experience.
Comprised of NBA Hall of Famers, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone and David Robinson, the 1992 “Dream Team” is considered one of the best in basketball history. Fans will be able to pit that roster against this year’s athletes on the USAB Men’s National Team, which includes NBA 2K17 cover athlete Paul George and Team 2K athletes Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Jimmy Butler, and Kyrie Irving.
Further, Duke University and USA Basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski will be making his debut in the NBA 2K series. Krzyzewski – or "Coach K" - will appear on the sidelines coaching the 2016 USA Basketball Men's National Team in NBA 2K17. His likeness will also be found in a revamped tutorial mode focusing on teaching fundamental basketball strategies including pick and roll execution, proper defensive positioning, ball movement, boxing out, court awareness and more.
NBA 2K17 will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC this September.
