NBA 2K16 will have the pleasure of esteemed Hollywood director, Spike Lee to work on the story for the MyCareer mode. Working on a video game might seem out of Lee’s comfort zone, but he is no stranger to the game of basketball.
In 1998, Lee Directed the film He Got Game, which follows the story of a basketball superstar leaving high school and trying to choose the right path for himself. It appears as though that is the same direction he is going in for the story of NBA 2K16. As the famed director told USA Today, “We follow a kid through the trials and tribulations of being a top high school player and the decisions he has to make.”
On the three covers of NBA 2K16 is Pelicans’ power forward Anthony Davis, Rockets’ point guard James Harden, and Warriors’ point guard Steph Curry. It should be no surprise that on each of these covers we see images of the famed athletes before they made the big leagues.
NBA 2K16 will be released September 29th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4.
