NBA 2K15 News Post


One image, one voice...

I've talked to him over the phone, chatted with him on AOL Instant Messenger (yes we are both that old). Never saw the guy in my life, but I met him by surprise at 2K Sports headquarters 4 or 5 years ago. He didn't have to introduce himself. I heard his voice as he walked through and I shouted at him. BIG CZAR!

While most know him as Da_Czar, his real name is Nino Samuel.

I've worked with him in the background for years and watched all of his YouTube videos from start to finish. Posted many of them on OS for everyone to watch and learn from. We even host some of his videos here at OS.

Today, it was announced that he has joined the NBA 2K development team, full time. He will be working with the gameplay team and will focus on the offensive AI system.

Please show this man some love by congratulating him on his new job.

Hopefully, he has the time to chime in at OS, like he has done over the years. All the best Nino!

"WITH" the gameplay team? Seems like they would've used different wording.

Either way, sounds good.

Wow! Amazing hire. Congrats Da_Czar. This dude's basketball and simulation knowledge is top notch. Can't wait to see what he worked on. Best part is we hopefully get to hear the Czar breaking stuff down in dev dairies.

Believe me... you guys are gonna love what Da Czar's built for 15. But this year is just the start. Couldn't be happier with our new and improved gameplay team. We got big plans for this thing.

Big ups to Da_Car of NBA 2K. So psyched to see how this series is molded by this ridiculously talented team into a 10 million seller. This is the true dream team!
