The official roster for NBA Playgrounds by Saber Interactive has been revealed. As previously noted, the game features over 200 current and former NBA players, taking part in two-on-two tournaments at locations around the world, with arcade-style gameplay in the vein of NBA Jam and NBA Street.
Glancing at the list, it would appear that all the biggest names from today are accounted for, along with a healthy amount of Hall of Famers and other noteworthy players from yesteryear. Michael Jordan obviously isn’t included as he is exclusive to NBA 2K, and Larry Bird is also absent, but Scottie Pippen is present along with Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, David Robinson, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Dominique Wilkins, Shaquille O’Neal, and many others.
It also sounds as though more players will be added at some point, so it remains to be seen whether additional Legends will make their way into the game, or if the rosters will simply be expanded with more current players.
Check out the full list below, leave your thoughts in the comments, and join in the discussion here in the Forum. NBA Playgrounds will be released digitally for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in May.
