Everyone knows that Olympics held every four years. Some pepole try their best to settle an age-old argument: who would win the game for modern U.S men’s national basketball team against the original Dream Team, the people behind the NBA 2K want to resolve the debate.
NBA 2K17 will feature both of those squads — for pre-order customers, that is — and the game’s latest trailer imagines a game between them.
2016 USA Olympic men’s basketball team stars in NBA 2K17
There isn’t a lot of actual basketball in the trailer; it’s mostly just slow-mo shots of the players on the court. But it’s still thrilling to see ’90s greats like Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird on the same floor as Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and NBA 2K17 cover athlete Paul George. Also featured is Mike Krzyzewski, who is the current head coach of the U.S. team — it’s his last go-round at the Olympics — and was an assistant coach in 1992.
A version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is the backing track for the trailer. It’s a stirring rendition, although there’s an inexplicable, off-putting key change halfway through the final line that’s rather jarring.
Due to its release date nears, you should remember that day, on september 20, NBA 2K17 will be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Nice thing is that the 1992 Dream Team will be available only to people who pre-order the game. It’s report that Team USA faces off against Australia tonight in Rio.
