2K Sports recently announced a partnership with USA Basketball to feature both the star-studded 2012 USA Basketball Men’s National Team and the 1992 “Dream Team” in NBA 2K13.
The original “Dream Team” is widely considered the most dominant sports team ever assembled, and featured 11 Hall of Fame players including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, David Robinson and Charles Barkley. If that picture looks incomplete that’s because it is, NBA 2K13 could not come to an agreement with Scottie Pippen and thus he will not be featured in the game. I’m assuming we will get Player #8, that looks and plays just like Pippen without his name.
“The fantasy matchup between the legendary 1992 ‘Dream Team’ and the 2012 USA Men’s national team has become one of the greatest sports debates of our time,” stated JAY Z, the Executive Producer of NBA 2K13. “In NBA 2K13, we’re giving fans the opportunity to play as two of the best teams ever assembled in sporting history, literally putting the debate right into their hands.”
NBA 2K13 will be available on October 2, 2012 in North America and October 5, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Wii U and PC. The Wii U version of the title will be available during the holiday season.
