Welcome to another Friday here at the NLSC and another edition of The Friday Five! If this is your first time checking out The Friday Five and you’re wondering what it’s all about, this is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.
The current gen version of NBA 2K14 will be on store shelves in a little under a month, while the next gen version of the game and NBA Live 14 will be launch titles for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come November. With the release of the games and a new NBA season right around the corner, this week I thought I’d take a look at five teams that will be fun and interesting to play with in this year’s games. Note that I’m not suggesting that these are the best teams to win with and they likely won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but they are five teams that I think are worth considering if you’re after a challenge or looking for an interesting scenario.
