By Sam Quirke, 1 year ago
By partnering with USA Basketball, 2K have announced that NBA 2K17 will feature the full roster of the 2016 USA National Team. This includes the coach Mike Krzyzewski, or "Coach K", who will be visible on the sidelines as you play, and also available to coach you personally in the game's revamped tutorial.

If you pre-order the title, you'll also get access to the legendary 1992 USA Basketball "dream team", as well as a special USA Basketball MyPLAYER jersey for use in-game.

The 1992 team, considered one of the greatest teams ever assembled, will contain plenty of famous stars, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone and David Robinson.

There's still no firm release date for the game other than "September 2016", however "early tip-off" access is a feature for the pre-orders and apparently starts on September 16th. We can expect the full release, on Xbox One and 360, shortly thereafter.
