NLSC Podcast #295: Throwbacks & Evolution

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #295 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! I’m on my own this week, but I’m not lost for words following some good news as the NBA 2K20 preview season rolls on.

In a throwback to basketball games from last decade, All-Decade teams are making a triumphant return in NBA 2K20! They’ve even got some spiffy uniforms based on retro All-Star designs, but admittedly not everyone is thrilled. Six new retro teams have also been added, including four that have been mentioned in an ongoing series of Friday Five articles. Coincidence? Quite possibly. Some MyCAREER news has also been trickling out of the recent Community Day. From a new approach to Archetypes to reworked Badges, it’s quite promising. There are also reports of a huge change to the way attribute upgrades are purchased. It sounds too good to be true, so we’ll see.

Tune in below!

What are your thoughts on the new retro teams and changes to MyCAREER in NBA 2K20? Sound off in the comments section below, or join in the discussion here in the Forum! Additionally, feel free to hit us up with any feedback on the episode, as well as suggestions for topics that you’d like to hear us discuss in future episodes.

Six New Classic Teams Added in NBA 2K20

2010 Portland Trail Blazers in NBA 2K20

The new All-Decade teams aren’t the only historical squads that have been added this year. Six new classic teams have been added to the roster in NBA 2K20: the 2003 Phoenix Suns, 2007 Washington Wizards, 2010 Portland Trail Blazers, 2014 San Antonio Spurs, 2014 Los Angeles Clippers, and 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers.

Funnily enough, the 2014 Spurs, 2003 Suns, 2007 Wizards, and 2014 Clippers are all teams that I’ve mentioned in my ongoing Friday Five series discussing retro squads I’d like to see added to the game. Assuming that none of the teams from NBA 2K19 have been removed, each of the new classic teams has at least one opponent from the same year in the game, as well as other squads from around the same era.

Check out screenshots of the six new additions below. What are your thoughts on the new classic teams in NBA 2K20? Are any of the squads ones that you were hoping to see and are looking forward to playing with? Who else would you like to see added in future games?

All-Decade Teams Among New Legendary Teams in NBA 2K20

1990s All-Decade Team in NBA 2K20

As promised, 2K has revealed some of the new Legendary teams that will be available in NBA 2K20. This year marks the return of All-Decade teams (also commonly referred to as Decade All-Stars). For those unfamiliar with the concept, they’re squads filled with the best players of each decade, spanning from the 50s and 60s through to the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and 2010s.

It appears that this isn’t it for the new historical teams in NBA 2K20, as the announcement indicates that these squads are just the first to be announced. It remains to be seen whether the rest of the additions are similar concepts, or new throwback squads along the lines of the 1996 Bulls and so on.

The All-Decade teams/Decade All-Stars, a concept that NBA Live has also featured in years gone by, last appeared in the NBA 2K series in NBA 2K10. They were removed in favour of the retro teams that were added as part of The Jordan Challenge and NBA’s Greatest, and subsequently featured as bonus content ever since. The historical content outside of MyTEAM was last expanded in NBA 2K18, when the All-Time squads were added.

You can check out some screenshots of the All-Decade teams below. As you can see, they’ll be sporting jerseys based on All-Star uniforms from their respective decade, which is a really cool idea. What are your thoughts on their inclusion? Have your say in the comments section below, and join in the discussion here in the NBA 2K20 section of the NLSC Forum! We’ll try to stay on top of the reveals as best we can, so keep it locked.

New Legendary Teams Coming in NBA 2K20

NBA 2K Retro Teams Ideas: 2006 New Jersey Nets

As announced by the official NBA 2K Twitter account, new Legendary teams have been added to NBA 2K20. While the name could refer to a new type of All-Time squads or other throwback content, most are assuming it means new retro teams. It’s been a few years since any new historical squads were added, so it would certainly come as welcome news.

It seems that the squads will be revealed soon, so stay tuned for further details as they’re made available. In the meantime, I invite you to check out my ongoing series of Friday Five articles in which I suggest retro teams that I’d like to see added to NBA 2K! I’m currently up to Part 11, with 55 teams. A couple of the teams that I’ve mentioned have actually made the cut in subsequent games.

What are your expectations of the new Legendary teams in NBA 2K20? Are there any squads in particular that you’d like to see added? Have your say in the comments section below, and join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum!
