WNBA Appearance In "NBA Live" Gives League Extra Exposure, Excites Players
Get ready for a new 🌊 🌊 🌊August 3, 2017
MORE TO COME: The AP's Doug Feinberg notes WNBA teams and players can "only be used in exhibition mode this year, and users can't create new female players yet, either." But the plan is to "add new features for the women in future versions of the game." Members of the N.Y. Liberty were still "impressed by some of the details programmers got right, including their choice of shoe and hairstyle" -- C Stefanie Dolson's purple hair even "made the cut." Phoenix Mercury C Brittney Griner has "all of her tattoos." There is even the WNBA's ''Watch Me Work'' campaign "on the video boards and the WNBA Pride logo on the scorer's table." However, Liberty G Sugar Rodgers noticed that players in the game "tended to use their left hand more than in real life." That may be because San Antonio Stars rookie G Kelsey Plum, who is left-handed, was "one of the main people used by EA Sports for motion capture" (AP, 9/12).
