Step Curry was already on the cover. I don't know why they picked Paul George. Sure he's a great player, but he hasn't been able to get the Pacers to the finals. He tries to do too much himself and really doesn't make the players around him better. I would have put Klay Thompson or even Kawhi Leonard on the cover before George. I'm not buying 2K17 anyways. I liked 2K15, but 2K16 took a step backwards for me. Game just doesn't feel right.

Ew 2K15 was lazy, it was the same game as the previous year. 2K16 was a vast improvement and arguably the best 2K in years. The moves were spliced together better, the cheese was cut down, they added loads of new animations and made it far more natural and fluid than before. The visuals are better and Ultimate Team is actually comparable to MUT now, it's legitimately fun. 2K16 is a masterpiece.

Even when the Spurs made it last it's not like it was on the back of kawhi, but still he would have been a better choice than George. Him or boban. 😎

No where close to a masterpiece. The defense for your CPU guys still suck. They still watch guards take layups and don't help just like in NBA 2K14 & NBA 2K15. Even if you change defense to "guard the paint" CPU doesn't help or are always late helping. CPU also seems to get a ton of OR, even with bad rebounding teams. I can easily make videos of my big men standing around letting the CPU get OR. They box out maybe 50% of the time. The shooting doesn't feel as smooth as NBA 2K15. Shots all seem to come up short, even when you shoot late. Sure there are better visuals and more animation, but gameplay is hit or miss in many areas. I played NBA 2K16 for about a month and then moved back to NBA 2K15. I won't be buying NBA 2K17 at full price. Screw that.

Yeah, I'm not saying that. I just think he's made a bigger impact for his team and the league this year then Paul George has done. I don't see the Pacers making it to the Finals again anytime soon. Cavs got destroyed last night. All you heard was Thompson for 3, Curry for 3. Green for 3 all night. lmao!!

Thank God it wasn't Curry!! :')

Sorry Steph couldn't make the cover photo shoot. He was to busy accepting his back to back MVP trophy.

Kawhi, Lowry, and Lillard are all upcoming stars, had all-star caliber seasons, and got further in the playoffs than PG.

He made a great comeback from the broken leg. They made a good choice.

That PR comment made no sense lol. Should of had Westbrook

nevin11356d ago

I dont mind PG, but the reason I wouldn't put Westbrook because he was the cover boy for NBA Live 16.

I like westbrook but he throws a damn tantrum more often than not. Cant stand that
