NBA 2K16 News Post

The early rumor of Spike Lee possibly working with 2K Sports and NBA 2K16 seems to be very real. According to Owen Good of Polygon, Spike Lee will have a role developing the career mode in the game.

Based off of some sources and leaked media, Golden St. Warriors Steph Curry, Houston Rockets James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant have been chosen as the cover athletes of the game and will be promoting The new Spike Lee joint "Be the Story" on social media channels.

Last year Kevin Durant was announced as the cover athlete of NBA 2K15 on May 6th, so we could hear something more official in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the link Steve.

I have mixed feelings about this news. The SIM in me worries that this "story development" will take the MC mode farther away from what made the mode great in the first place.

The optimist in me is excited that such a talented person could be crafting an exciting and in-depth experience for me to enjoy.

Since Spike is now on board...what are the chances of him being on the Knicks crowd now? They should mocap him complaining to the refs.

Spike Lee doing Career Mode? Hell yes! That mode is going to be amazing.

I don't know about this Spike Lee Career mode stuff. I like a previous poster stated, I am scared of the "story development". I just don't want nothing scripted.

Let us live out our own careers and not be first round picks or undrafted because of a story.

KD, another cover..? He's barely played this season. Give it to someone else, like AD.
 
# 12 Mintsa @ 04/23/15 03:13 PM
I'm assuming one of these 3 is going to be the main cover guy and the other 2 will be rare ones (much like 2k12 with Jordan as the main guy and the rare Bird/Magic) ?

I honestly don't care who is on the cover or what's going on in myCareer. If the servers continue to have problems in 2K16 I'll pass and see what Live '16 has to offer. If Live '16 isn't any better then I'll pass on NBA games. Lol

So the career mode is going to have even more story nonsense in it? I'd prefer them to make a new story mode to house that stuff and those of us that want to make our own stories can play the career mode as it was before this gen started.

I just hope this means we now get better than garbage tier voice acting performances. Seriously, some of the ones in 2K15 weren't even funny bad, just ugly

I was almost sure that this would be Curry's year as (lone) cover athlete. Didn't forsee the three cover deal though. Not sure why not strangely.

Feels like it should have been Lebron over KD since he's actually playing and Cleveland Lebron Part 2 is one of the biggest stories this season.

SPike Lee is involved?????Interesting..............
 
# 20 CashmereThinker @ 04/23/15 04:12 PM
Curry on the cover and 2K will still find a way to botch is shooting form.
