The NBA 2K has massive franchise. Focusing on the exploits of the National Basketball Association, NBA 2K has become the game to have if you’re a basketball lover that enjoys playing video games. For basketball fans, NBA 2K17 is definitely a game that they don't want to miss.


This year, 2K is allowing us to expand MyLeague to up to 36 teams. I love this idea, and it reminds me of something I did in 2K10 that was a lot of fun.


The main idea is to add two new teams to the league. Doesn't matter what they're called or where they're located. Some of you might want to see the Sonics resurrected. Personally, I will be playing for the pre-generated Virginia team.


Next, create a player. This can be your new "MyPlayer." You have a lot of freedom here to make him as you see fit. No caps unless you want them. I might end up making a 7'7" center for one of these. Put this player on your chosen expansion team and set the player lock on him. This way, it will sim when he's benched, just like in MyCareer.


Make another player. This is your guy's rival, and he's going on the second created team. Make him as good as your player. For an extra challenge, make him exploit a weakness your player has. For example, if you're a 6'1" PG, make your rival a taller, Shaun Livingston type PG, who can bully your guy down low. You could even make your rival play another position. Maybe your center is the weak spot on your team, so you could make your rival the next Shaq. This year, 2K is putting team rivalries in MyGM and MyLeague. I'm not sure how much control you'll end up having over this, but hopefully you can breed a rivalry between the two new teams in the league.


Now, you need to fill out your roster. I'm going to make mine from free agents -- it'll end up being a ragtag group of misfits, but we'll be able to pull it off with some crazy trick play at the last second! You could also create some more players (hopefully just role players so your team isn't too good) to add some depth. If you're a guard, maybe a solid P&R big. Do the same for the rival squad.



Of course, MyLeague and MyGM offer tons of freedom and control, so you can automate every non-player aspect (trades, management, etc.), or you could play it like MyGM. You could try to trade for an all star to make a dynamic duo, and maybe you created a role player who ended up being a star (you can always edit sliders to "improve" players), rich gives your team a big three. Keep in mind that you don't have to make your player a god. He can start out like many "good" rookies, in the 70-80s range. And you can bump him up as you feel you earned it. If your play style ends up being an outside shooter, and you score a lot of threes on good efficiency, maybe put some points into three point shooting. If you really wanted a challenge, maybe you could make your player injury prone (if possible).


In MyCareer, your player always ends up being the star of his respective team. But here, you basically own the franchise. You get the chance to bring glory to a brand new team made of mostly guys who didn't make any other rosters. Millions of new fans who has been dying for a team in their city. You'd be their hero. Or you can pull a KD. The choice is yours.


There’s always one thing for certain when it comes to the world of basketball: one video game simulation reigns supreme. NBA 2K17 will be out soon, let's looking forward to the releasing of NBA 2K17.
