’08 Houston Rockets Confirmed for NBA 2K16

2K Sports has continued their reveal of new retro teams in NBA 2K16 this week, posting an image on Facebook and Twitter spotlighting two new historical squads: the 2000 Toronto Raptors, and 2008 Houston Rockets.

The addition of the 2000 Raptors had previously been revealed on an episode of NBA 2KTV, but the 2008 Rockets are a new confirmation. That Rockets team notably won 22 games in a row, which stood as the second longest winning streak in NBA history behind the 1972 Los Angeles Lakers 33 game streak, before the 2013 Miami Heat won 27 in a row. Their roster included Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming, Dikembe Mutombo, Steve Francis, Aaron Brooks, and Shane Battier, to mention a few noteworthy names,

As of this post, six new historical teams have been revealed: the 2000 Toronto Raptors, 2000 Portland Trail Blazers, 2001 Los Angeles Lakers, 2003 Dallas Mavericks, 2008 Houston Rockets, and 2008 Boston Celtics. A total of 12 new retro teams will be available in NBA 2K16.
