Top Euroleague basketball teams playable in NBA 2K14

Now that we've seen Jordan face off against Lebron, it's time to see how the Euroleague stacks up against current NBA superstars. For the first time in series history, NBA 2K14 will include the top teams from the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, thanks to an exclusive multi-year global partnership. I'm not too familiar with the Euroleague, but I do know that it plays a pivotal role as a segway into the NBA and even plays home to certain college athletes who may not be primed for the big stage just yet.

Fourteen teams in total will be available to play in the game. They are:

  • Alba Berlin
  • FC Barcelona
  • Real Madrid
  • CSKA Moscow
  • EA7 Emporio Armani Milano
  • Montepaschi Siena
  • Fenerbahçe Ülker Istanbul
  • Anadolu Efes Istanbul
  • Olympiacos Piraeus
  • Panathinaikos Athens
  • Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv
  • Zalgiris Kaunas
  • Unicaja Málaga
  • Laboral Kutxa Vitoria

“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome top Euroleague teams into the NBA 2K series,” said Jason Argent, Senior Vice President of Sports Operations at 2K.  “European basketball has an incredibly passionate following, and we’re all excited to give fans the opportunity to take on Europe’s best in NBA 2K14.”

For those who follow the Euroleague, do you plan on playing as these teams?
