The trailer for NBA 2K18 has been released and the talk for Nets fans has been D’Angelo Russell, who was shown in the preview a couple of times reppin’ the black and white. Mozgov made a short appearance as well.
Of course, zero Nets were in the preview last year, so Russell gives them a little relevance. He was in the preview as a Laker in 2K17.
He’s a popular player among the younger crowd of people playing these games, as we’ve written. It’s also great for marketeers looking to build a new fanbase. It’s not bad for the team either to nab a 21-year-old who can be a big part of the rebuilding process.
Of course, the only way to sustain this ‘likeability’ is performing on the court, individually and as a team.
As for Nets player ratings, we know Russell is an 80, Sean Kilpatrick is a 74 and Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead are a 73. It can all be tracked.
