Proving that Australia produces some great athletes, NBA 2K17 will now feature the Australian Boomers. While that in itself is a big win, this is only the second national team to appear in the series, after Team USA, since the series kicked off 17 years ago.
Anthony Moore, CEO of Basketball Australia said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be part of NBA 2K17, the biggest NBA game in the world. We jumped at the chance to have our Australian Boomers in the game and now Australian gamers can take on the world with Patty Mills, Matthew Dellavedova and Andrew Bogut together in the green and gold.”
Patty Mills, speaking ahead of his third straight Olympic appearance said, “Australian basketball continues to go from strength-to-strength and our players are leaving their mark on leagues around the world. It’s great to see 2K recognizing our nation’s growing impact on the sport with the inclusion of Team Australia in NBA 2K17.”
