NBA 2K13 to feature 1992 Dream Team and 2012 USA National Team
2K Sports have announced a partnership with USA Basketball, that will see the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s National Team and the 1992 “Dream Team” in NBA 2K13.
Having earned recognition as one of USA Basketball’s all-time greatest teams, the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s Nation Team was lead to success by NBA 2K13 cover athlete Kevin Durant to numerous successful showings.
“It was an incredible blessing to have been part of the 2012 USA Basketball National Team,” Durant commented. “USA Basketball’s National Team legacy is incredible and so many of basketball’s all-time greats have been part of it, I’m just honored to be in that group. Like everybody, I can’t wait to see how our squad stacks up against the 1992 team in NBA 2K13.”
Alongside this, the original “Dream Team” has long been considered the most dominant ever assembled, featuring eleven Hall of Fame players that include Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, David Robinson and Charles Barkley.
“The experience we shared in Barcelona is truly one of the highlights of my career,” explained six-time NBA MVP and former NBA 2K cover athlete Michael Jordan. “Being able to represent not only my country but basketball as a whole is an honor that I will never forget.”
NBA 2K13 will release for Wii across North America on October 2nd, with an international release on October 5th. A Wii U version will follow later in the year.
