NBA 2K17 Latest News: 2K Gives Rookie Of The Month An Allen Iverson Step-Over Move; Badges Players Want To See In NBA 2K18
NBA 2K17 has noticed the moves of Joel Embiid inside the court and has brought it to the basketball simulation video game. Game enthusiasts think more badges should be added to NBA 2K18.
Joel Embiid, the Rookie of the Month for games played on October and November, was seen stepping over Allen Iverson, who was rated by ESPN as the fifth greatest NBA shooting guard of all time. Uproxx wrote that the leading contender for Rookie of the Year is not only known for his outside shooting and rim protection, but also for some trash talking moves.
The 7-foot-2 NBA player was reported taunting Richard Jefferson when he drew a foul after finishing a layup. Embiid seems not shy at all to have some words for the veteran small forward of Cleveland Cavaliers. His demeanor in court is what the players are seeing now in the NBA 2K17.
The Visual Concepts game is among the top 20 games on Steam and its success may put off potential competitors. However, some basketball buffs still think there are more badges that need to be added to the next series.
Forbes wrote that the triple-doubler badge would give players an additional five per cent boost in their attributes. These boosts do not last long as they are achieved only in the last quarter of the game.
The screen runner badge can enhance the shooting attributes of a player who does not have the ball. Players whose primary role is an offensive run can earn the badge in MyPlayer.
The hustle man badge saves a loose ball and gives the entire team a boost. When a player dives on the floor to keep the ball from going out of bounds for five times, he then earns a badge. With its believable characters and gameplay, NBA 2K17 is one of the most popular RPGs that takes players from college basketball to stardom and Hall of Fame.
