At the moment, there’s a lot of discussion going on about the 2015-2016 NBA season and this particular excitement extends to the gaming world as well. The upcoming NBA 2K16 videogame is all set to release in 29th September for five different consoles and the PC is included as well. An NBA 2K16 promotional video was released in Tuesday with the title #WINNING.
The Boston Celtics are making an appearance along with several other superstars like Anthony Davis, James Harden, Steph Curry and LeBron James. This particular video game franchise has been quite popular over the years and the real-life players love it too.
Recently Isaiah Thomas, Celtics guard found that he was rated an 81 out of 100 in the upcoming game and according to him it was a bit low, although he was good humored about it. This is what he posted:
“Only a 81 LOL? Come on! J/k Thanks @NBA2K & @Ronnie2K 4 the screen shot. This game is going to be crazy #NBA2k16 http://t.co/CkWbAW5jdu”
If you are a Thomas fan, don’t be disappointed. If he decides to score off the bench and play a major role for the Celtics, his rating is bound to be increased through one of the many in-season roster updates.
In the meantime, the full-length gameplay trailer for NBA 2K16 was released on Monday and through the same process, The Atlanta Hawks’ new Stadium might have been showcased as well. In a specific clip showing a Kyle Korver 3-pointer in the left corner, the new Philips Arena Floor was revealed and it featured a black curtain along the court.
There was also volt green “Hawks” and volt green and red “Atlanta” written on perpendicular angles of the baseline and the sideline. At the same time, the Hawks did not confirm that this is their new floor.
However, it can be expected that this is the real one since a game belonging to the prestigious NBA 2K franchise will surely not promote a false court in its official gameplay trailer. If the reports are true, this new court will be one of the more interesting additions to this game.
LeBron James and Kevin Durant are the two best basketball players in the world, but there’s a catch, they must be healthy! In the NBA 2K15 game last season, these two players, James (98 rating) and Durant (95 rating) were the two highest rated players. Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul (91) and San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan (90) where the other two players who actually managed to cross 90 to begin this year.
Recently, Durant posted a photo of his likeness with his rating in NBA 2K16 and it emerges as a slight surprise. Keep in mind that Durant was absent during a large part of the last season because of a problematic foot injury. Right now, we are waiting to see how it all goes along. He still remains one of the best basketball players in the world due to which his low rating is a bit unnecessary.
Meanwhile, the Celtics are interested in getting James who comes with a 94 overall rating in the current simulation of the game while Pau Gasol (86), the Chicago Bulls forward and Al Horford (83) is an Atlanta Hawks Center.
In reality, we can actually see this happening. At the same time, the final roster update designed for NBA 2K15 shows Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors Point Guard with a rating of 95, which is a significant increase compared to his 89 overall rating to begin last season.
NBA Live 16” cover athlete Russell Westbrook along with additional cover athletes James Harden and Anthony Davis were all improved to the 94s. From the looks of it, we might witness the King being dethroned by Curry for the second time this summer.
