NBA® 2K17 to Feature 2016 USA Basketball Men’s National Team and Legendary 1992 USA Basketball “Dream Team”

USA National Team Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski part of NBA 2K franchise
for the first time

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–2K today announced a partnership with USA Basketball that
will bring the full roster of the 2016 USA Basketball Men’s National
Team, including Coach Mike Krzyzewski, to NBA 2K17, the
next iteration of the top-rated and top-selling NBA video game
simulation series*. Fans who pre-order NBA 2K17 will
receive the legendary 1992 USA Basketball “Dream Team”, along with a
special USA Basketball MyPLAYER jersey to fully customize their USA
Basketball experience.

2K has also revealed that renowned Duke University and USA Basketball
coach, Mike Krzyzewski, will be making his debut in the NBA 2K
series. Krzyzewski – or “Coach K,” as he’s widely known – will appear on
the sidelines coaching the 2016 USA Basketball Men’s National Team in NBA
. His likeness will also be found in a revamped tutorial
mode focusing on teaching fundamental basketball strategies including
pick and roll execution, proper defensive positioning, ball movement,
boxing out, court awareness and more.

“Basketball has become an iconic part of American sports heritage, and
I’m thrilled that fans can play with this year’s roster in NBA 2K,”
said Krzyzewski who, since 2008, has coached the USA Basketball Men’s
National Team to four straight international tournament gold medals. “NBA
is the best way to connect to legends of the past ‘Dream
Team’ while celebrating the success of this year’s roster.”

Comprised of NBA Hall of Famers, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird,
Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone and David Robinson, the 1992
“Dream Team” is universally considered one of, if not the greatest, team
ever assembled in basketball history. Fans will be able to pit that
roster against this year’s athletes on the USAB Men’s National Team,
which includes NBA 2K17 cover athlete Paul George and Team
athletes Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Jimmy Butler, and
Kyrie Irving.

“We’re always looking to bring fans closer to basketball’s signature
teams and players, which is why we’re collaborating with USA Basketball
and Coach K for NBA 2K17,” said Alfie Brody, Vice
President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “We couldn’t think of a
better way to send off the 2016 team by celebrating USAB’s legacy in
this year’s title, while giving fans an opportunity to play as
historical and current teams.”

digital and physical formats for $59.99 on Xbox One, Xbox 360,
