This new entry in the successful NBA2k franchise is Executive Produced by none other than Jay-Z. The idea behind it is to have Jay-Z have some involvement in the game and to pick the soundtrack.
While NBA 2K11 and 2K12 featured past legends, 2K13 places rising young stars on the cover. From left to right, the cover shows Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls.
Dream Team vs Team USA
The Dream Team from the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics makes its debut on the 2K franchise. The roster is completely accurate including Charles Barkley who also makes his 2K debut.
Team USA from the 2012 London Summer Olympics is also playable. Featuring the full roster.
There are thirty-five classic teams available playable in the "Quick Play" mode. Most of the roster is accurate with some very notable exclusions such as: Kareem Adbul Jabbar, Julius Erving, and Chris Webber. New to this year is the 00-01 Philadelphia 76ers.
