What’s up, my fellow gamers? My apologies for not posting more often over these past few months. I let work get the best of me.
But, I have some free time now, and I’m ready to talk a little hoops. No,not actual basketball. We’re talking about NBA 2K13 for Xbox360.
When you are home for the holidays, your siblings, neighbors, or old friends may want to challenge you to a not-so-friendly game of NBA 2K13, and you need to be ready. So, if you have the chance to pick your own team (as you do in some modes of the game), here is what your starting five should look like:
PG: Chris Paul – Paul may not be as explosive in real life as some other guys, but he is the total package at point guard. He is a perfect 2K13 player, because you get high ratings in speed, quickness, steals, and outside shooting.
SG: Kevin Durant – I know, I know, Durant isn’t a shooting guard. So? It is a video game, and he is one of the two best players in the game. He will be plenty quick to guard opposing two-guards.
SF: Lebron James – I do not love the guy, but you need to have him on your team if at all possible. He is the best there is.
PF: Kevin Love – The best rebounder in the game, and the defending NBA 3-Point Champion. Yeah, I would say that’s a pretty good video game combination.
C: Dwight Howard – Dwight’s big issue in real life is his abysmal free throw shooting. While it is still not good in 2K13, you can figure out his release and make this a non-issue.
Now, I struggle to see a scenario where you could draft this team, as Durant and James would likely be the first two players taken. However, it is sure fun to think about.
