NBA 2K17 will take their MyCareer mode to a new level this season with a little help from actor Michael B. Jordan. MyCareer mode will take on a similar narrative route to last season’s version with Spike Lee directing your MyPlayer’s path from college prospect to NBA star. This season will feature a deeper storyline during the collegiate portion of MyCareer mode. Eight real universities are featured in MyCareer mode that allow your MyPlayer to navigate the real pressures of an NBA prospect going through a one-and-done season.
Michael B. Jordan will play Justice Young, a character who has his own NBA aspirations, but helps guide your MyPlayer through the rigors of the NBA. Whenever your MyPlayer needs a little advice on or off the court, he can turn to Vince from Friday Night Lights for some answers. The addition of Young provides a teammate for your MyPlayer to bounce ideas off of and grow with. Jordan is really excited to team up with 2K and offer an added element of depth to the MyCareer Mode with the announcement:
“NBA 2K17 was the perfect platform to connect with a new, unique audience and challenge myself to expand my abilities as an actor,” said Michael B. Jordan, who was most recently inducted into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in July 2016. “I’m humbled at the opportunity to help influence a franchise that I’ve been a passionate fan of since its first release.”
MyCareer mode has come a long ways in just five years. This year’s edition should be more time consuming than any previous version, but at least Michael B. Jordan will be there to guide you to the finish line.
