My Earliest 2K Memory would probably be getting NBA 2K2 for Sega Dreamcast for Christmas. My favorite player Allen Iverson was on the cover.
My Favorite Player To Play With Growing Up had to be T Mac. He was pretty much unstoppable in NBA 2K6 and 2K7. The one’s with Shaq on the cover.
2K Game Changer would probably be the MyGM feature from 2K14. I liked how you can trade and sign players based on salary cap, and actually make front office decisions. Also scouting players to draft then drafting them was pretty cool.
Playing As myself In NBA 2K is a dream come true. It has definitely been one of my favorite games growing up, so to see myself on the game now is something ill never forget.

My Earliest 2K Memory is of my dad getting NBA 2K8 for me and I just remember trying to go for 40 or 50 every time with Kobe. I might not always win the game, but Kobe was going to have have a 50 piece.
My Favorite Player To Play With Growing Up was Kobe. He was my favorite player growing up, so I always used him and the Lakers. I’d either use him or T-Mac (Tracy McGrady).
2K Game Changer for me was when they added the MyCareer mode and you could build your player up. I like my MyPlayer for the Slam Dunk contest.
Playing As Myself In NBA 2K is really cool. It puts it in perspective that I’m actually in the NBA. Now, I’m trying to get 50 in the game with me. I see the online videos of me dunking and it doesn’t seem real. I like that.
Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia 76ers
My Earliest 2K Memories were made on the road during AAU with my friends. We’d get a chance to play together and it was something we could all do as a way to form a good team bond.
My Favorite Player To Play With Growing Up was Kevin Durant because he can do everything on the court and I felt like he was the most creative player in the game.
2K Game Changer is the online play. I like that the most because I like being able to compete against different people and styles of play - without anybody ever knowing it's me they're playing against.
Playing As Myself In NBA 2K is crazy. It's still a dream come true to be able to see myself in the game. It's hard not to just abuse myself in the game, so I max out the stamina so I can play the whole 48 minutes.
Tyler Ennis, Phoenix Suns
MY Earliest 2K Memories all involve playing my brother and us fighting and breaking controllers (haha). Things got real. I played other basketball video games too when I was younger, but 2K took over and I’ve been playing it ever since.
Favorite Player To Play With Growing Up was always myself. I’d create myself in the game, give myself a 99 rating on everything and just dominate. But as I got older, I’d make myself more realistic. Other than that, I would use T-Mac when he was with the Rockets. It was like a cheat code having him and Yao Ming on the same team.
2K Game Changer would have to be 2K13 as a whole. I just liked the gameplay. Sometimes, games aren’t so realistic but the players in that game looked as real as possible. Then with the gameplay, guys would really play like themselves. Like, Kobe wouldn’t miss shots in the 4th quarter.
Playing As Myself In NBA 2K will be exciting, but I actually haven’t played 2K15 yet. My brother has and he said it’s scary how much my character looks like me. It’s weird to have guys tag me on social media to show me 2K game stats and say ‘I had a great game with you.’ I wonder if people get mad at me if they were controlling me and missed the game winning shot like I used to get at players when I was a kid. It’s pretty cool to think about.
