NBA 2K13 to feature 2012 USA basketball men’s national team
2K Sports today announced that you'll not only be able to play as the 2012 USA Basketball Men's National Team but the 1992 "Dream Team" as well in NBA 2K13. Nice! Now if only the Looney Tunes we're available as playable characters, I could recreate my favorite Space Jam moments!
“As executive producer, letting fans go head to head with these legendary USA teams was extremely important to JAY Z,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We are excited to partner with USA Basketball, and share in JAY Z’s enthusiasm in making this a reality in NBA 2K13.”
The original 'Dream Team' featured Hall of Fame players including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, David Robinson and Charles Barkley.
“The experience we shared in Barcelona is truly one of the highlights of my career,” said five-time NBA MVP and former NBA 2K cover athlete Michael Jordan. “Being able to represent not only my country but basketball as a whole is an honor that I will never forget.”
Kevin Durant also helped lead USA to its successful showing and will be joining the elite list of accomplished basketball players.
“It was an incredible blessing to have been part of the 2012 USA Basketball National Team,” said Durant. “USA Basketball's National Team legacy is incredible and so many of basketball’s all-time greats have been part of it, I’m just honored to be in that group. Like everybody, I can’t wait to see how our squad stacks up against the 1992 team in NBA 2K13.”
You can look out for NBA 2K13 to his store shelves on October 2nd in North America, and October 5th internationally on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
