NBA 2K17 News Post



We wrote earlier this week about the possibilities of what could be done if Team USA and International Basketball were going to have a big role in this year's game.

This morning, 2K announced that both the 1992 Dream Team and the current team USA will be in the game. The inclusion of international basketball in NBA 2K17 seems a big deal and will be very timely with the upcoming Olympics set to kick off next month.

What do you think is a bigger addition? Is it Team USA? The '92 Dream Team? Are you more excited about other international squads?

Sound off in our poll and leave a comment on how excited you are for International Basketball to be making an appearance in NBA 2K17!

'92 Dream Team without question. Greatest team ever assembled! With that said, it won't mean much if the numerous gameplay flaws aren't addressed.

I'll say Dream team, mainly because Barkley is in it. Maybe Suns '93 is next?

Other International teams with a tournament mode

The Dream Team back with Charles is dope. It would be nice to see that 2012 USA team:

Lebron
Durant
CP3
Kobe
Westbrook
Iggy
Melo
Harden
Anthony D
Love
Tyson C
Deron W

Very fun team to play with on 2K

As a fan from England and of a certain age the Dream Team 92 were inspiring, to see any nation in any sport dominate like that made to stop and watch, I know that in England that was a boom time for interest in NBA and basketball and Kickstarted it being played in street and hoops appearing all over the place so for me that's massive, but having international tournaments and teams now that are starting to catch the US is good.

I'm hoping for team GB but I doubt it.

none of them are interesting to me if they are only for Play Now instead other modes like My GM and My League

Holding hope for those classic teams... As mentioned, Suns 93 would be awesome

I think the real power of international teams are MyGM integration. Imagine if you can play every summer with an international team. It would be perfect to be the coach of the International team that you want and choose the roster. For now I think is only posible with team USA...

Is it confirmed that the entire Dream Team is intact or is there a possibilty for omissions? If players are missing from the squad then that is a HUGE let down. Also hoping for the addition of some classic teams. I'm assuming we will get a few more Kobe centric laker squads since he is on the special edition cover. Wouldn't mind some more teams from the 00s and 90s

No game is flawless but there wasn't much for me to complain about on the gameplay side of things for 2k16. I don't think there been a 2k game I've enjoyed as much as 2k16.

With that said I can't wait to see what changes and improvements they've made to the gameplay side of things. If they continue to make progress the game like they did last year I might not touch another game come this fall.

Classic teams, national teams or teams of Euroleague are useless if they are not inserted in a context of challenge as the Jordan Challenge of 2K11. Who cares to make friendly with the Dream Team?
Personally I don't care anything about the presence of the Dream Team or the Australian national team. I prefer that 2K perfectly developments other things like this that I wrote here.

I believe that the ultimate prize to win an Nba ring is still too little. After a long journey concluded with the Nba title there can not be a celebration of just a few seconds. It takes more.

I'm honestly loosing faith on an olympic/worldcup game mode after reading the marketing director comments on the integration of USAB and the dream team... I think it will be other two teams to play with on exhibition and maybe for the new myleague/mygm...

Please 2k show me im wrong in this one.

Where's my boy D Rose?

I was super excited about the 04 Pistons last year until I noticed there's no Rasheed. Don't give us teams that are missing huge components. It's weak
 
# 16 sheredia @ 07/30/16 01:18 PM
these 2 squads are fine but we need more than what was in 2k13, to be honest. an Olympic mode would be a nice addition. or maybe even classic USA Olympic teams from the past.
