2K Sports Will Include '92, '12 USA Hoops Teams In "NBA 2K13"
2K Sports today confirmed weeks of industry rumors, announcing it will feature the '92 Dream Team in the upcoming "NBA 2K13" video game release, scheduled for Oct. 2. The virtual Dream Team, however, will be an 11-man squad, as the publisher was unable to secure licensing from Scottie Pippen. "NBA 2K13" will also feature the recent '12 U.S. men's basketball team that won the Gold Medal in London.
"The fantasy matchup between the legendary 1992 'Dream Team' and the 2012 USA men's national team has become one of the greatest sports debates of our time," said rapper and mogul Jay Z, recently signed on by 2K Sports as an executive producer of the game, in a statement. "In 'NBA 2K13,' we're giving fans the opportunity to play as two of the best teams ever assembled in sporting history, literally putting the debate right into their hands."
