Welcome to Episode #154 of the NLSC Podcast! Arcane and I certainly have a bit to talk about this week with the end of the 2016 regular season, the Playoffs looming, and both Kobe Bryant and the Golden State Warriors making history. Also, some very early news about the NBA 2K17 cover and pre-order bonuses.
On this week’s show…
- 2K have announced that Kobe Bryant will appear on the cover of a special Legend Edition of NBA 2K17. Have they also hinted at another possible cover player for this year?
- We discuss a reel of NBA Live 16 player faces that a graphic designer posted on YouTube.
- In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: Arcane’s MyPLAYER gets onto 2K TV in MyCAREER, while Andrew wonders what to play next.
- Kobe Bryant has gone out in style, scoring 60 points in his final game. We reflect a little on the Black Mamba’s legendary career.
- The Golden State Warriors become the first team to win 73 games, beating the Chicago Bulls’ twenty year old record. We congratulate them, but grumble a little about some vocal (and hypocritical) fanboys.
- With the 2016 regular season in the books, we look ahead to the Playoffs and make our first round predictions.
- Speaking of which, we end Episode #154 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s Bold Predictions. After getting our picks right last week, can we both get a streak going as we head into the postseason?
