Episode #169 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! It’s a three man booth once again this week, as Arcane, Kenny, and I discuss the latest NBA 2K17 previews, our recent sessions of 2K Pro-Am in NBA 2K16, and a few NBA topics.
On this week’s show…
- As he was out of town for last week’s episode, Kenny gives his thoughts on league expansion coming to MyLEAGUE and MyGM in NBA 2K17.
- National teams have been confirmed for NBA 2K17, with Team USA and the Australian Boomers being the first squads to be revealed.
- The final two pre-order bonuses for NBA 2K17 have been confirmed, with one of them being the 1992 Dream Team (Charles Barkley included!). We discuss whether or not it’s a fair move to make content like that pre-order exclusive.
- We also note that Danilo Gallinari will appear on the Italian cover of NBA 2K17, and give our thoughts on the first official screenshot featuring (most of) Team USA 2016.
- In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: a rough start for the new NLSC 2K Pro-Am Team – Snoop’s Sliders – and further impressions of NBA Live Mobile.
- Moving on to some NBA topics, we discuss the NBA’s decision to move the 2017 All-Star Weekend from Charlotte, due to the ongoing issues with the HB2 bill.
- NBA Legend Nate Thurmond passed away last week. He was before our time, but we still have a few things to say in tribute to the first NBA player to ever register a quadruple-double.
- If you want to pick up a Kevin Durant Oklahoma City Thunder jersey, there are some excellent bargains going right now that won’t even set you back a dollar.
- Amar’e Stoudemire has called it a career, so we reminisce about some of STAT’s highlights.
- We wrap up Episode #169 of the NLSC Podcast with the return of Trivia Time!
