Ausgamers bursted out that Australia’s national basketball team, the Boomers, will appear inside NBA 2K17.
The inclusion of the Boomers means the first time a non-USA national team has appeared in the popular franchise.
The Boomers’ line-up will contain the following players:
“We are absolutely thrilled to be part of NBA 2K17, the biggest NBA game in the world,” said Anthony Moore, CEO of Basketball Australia in a press release later distributed by 2K. “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.”
