I’m really at a point, where if I buy an NBA2k game, it must have the 1992 Dream Team. Great news came out from 2k Sports today to announce the historic teams return. They will also features this summers Gold Medal hopefuls, the 2016 USA Basketball squad. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will head that roster.
Charles Barkley will be back in the fold and for once, could he sign what needs to be signed to appear a fully playable in the game?? They should definitely have 3 Historic Teams featuring Sir Charles. The Sixers, the 1993 Suns and the best Rockets squad that featured himself, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. I am to understand because the USA Basketball team is not an NBA team, that is why Barkley appears as an exclusive playable character. That’s what made NBA2k13 painful 4 years ago. You could only use Barkley on the USA squad. One was unable to remove him or clone him to another roster. I would love to assemble an All-Sixers team with Barkley, Dr. J, Wilt, Moses Malone and Allen Iverson all in one starting lineup.
Larry Bird, has been given an appearance change, from how he appeared in NBA2k13. This time around, he has the 1992 haircut as opposed to looking like 1986 Larry. Scottie also has his summer of ’92 goatee.
It will be a lot of fun to have the 1992 Dream Team vs. 2016-17 Golden State Warriors battle it out on the court. Sir Charles Barkley vs. Draymond Green. I would like to see other Dream Teams/USA Teams featured, especially the 1996 and 2008 squads. I’d say the 1996 team was the second best Dream Team, featuring returning players from the 1992 team like Barkley, Malone, Stockton, Robinson and Pippen along with players like Shaq, Hakeem, Grant Hill and Reggie Miller. The 2008 Redeem Team ranks as the third best USA team all-time in my view. Kobe Bryant and LeBron James led the charge along with Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul over Pau and Marc Gasol of Spain.
2k Sports should also consider featuring International rosters like 1992 Croatia or 2008 Spain, so we can have some foreign opposition. Either way, custom rosters can always be created. I typically create a Team International and a Team World. All of that said, it great to see the 1992 USA Dream Team is returning!
