Spike Lee to Write NBA 2K16’s My Career Mode

NBA 2K16

While Stephen Curry and Lebron James battled it out in the NBA Finals tonight, 2K Sports took some advertising space to announce their partnership with filmmaker Spike Lee on this year’s game. That’s right the legendary filmmaker and annoying New York Knicks fan Spike Lee will co-produce, write and direct the My Career mode in NBA 2K16. If you are unfamiliar with the My Career mode it is the story mode in the 2K series that tells the story of a custom player’s journey in the NBA.

Spike Lee and 2K Sports teaming up to deliver a compelling story for the My Career mode is an out of nowhere move and is interesting to say the least. The My Career mode has always felt a little lifeless despite being an interesting idea so getting someone with Spike Lee’s pedigree should help bring some life into the single player campaign. I doubt we will get a Jesus Shuttlesworth level story because the game will probably need to keep it E for everyone, but it could be what the NBA 2K series needs to keep things fresh.

Cover Athletes were also announced and this year there will be three covers for NBA 2K16 and they are Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans and James Harden of the Houston Rockets.
