NBA 2K16 Set For Star-Studded Covers


2K have today revealed that NBA 2K16 will feature three unique covers this year, which will include NBA All-Stars Stephen Curry, James Harden and Anthony Davis.

The MyCAREER mode will also be very interesting as 2K have been working with legendary filmmaker and master storyteller Spike Lee to direct, write and co-produce the mode’s experience enabling fans to be the story of an NBA player with drama never before experienced in a sports game. Lee’s impressive CV includes working on the classic feature film He Got Game and Nike’s Mars Blackmon commercial series, demonstrating his passion for basketball culture and storytelling ability which culminate as an interactive experience in NBA 2K16. Spike Lee commented:

Partnering with legendary 2K and Visual Concepts is one of the most unique challenges I’ve had in filmmaking, and allows me to push the boundaries of innovative storytelling. My hope is fans will feel even more connected to the world of basketball in NBA 2K16

Greg Thomas, President, Visual Concepts added:

Working with Spike Lee on NBA2K16’s MyCAREER has elevated our most popular game experience from both a visual and narrative perspective. By writing and directing the MyCAREER storyline, Spike brings the real world experience of the NBA to life like never before making NBA 2K16 the ultimate simulation.

The three cover stars for this years game, Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, Houston Rockets’ James Harden, and New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis were all proud to be getting their very own individual covers for NBA 2K16. Here is what they had to say:
