NBA Player Comparison: I modeled my 6’9″ SF Two-Way Shot Creator around NBA players like Paul George and Jimmy Butler — a versatile player who can do a little bit of everything, and do it very well. I’ve grown to really enjoy playing on this build because I can score in a variety of ways, while also having the defensive prowess to steal the ball, block shots, and disrupt opposing scorers.
Competitive Proam Experience:
I’ve played Pro-Am on a casual basis for the last 2 years. This will be my first attempt at competitive play, and I’m really looking forward to being part of a consistent team.
I’m a lifelong basketball fan, following the NBA and hooping as much as I’ve been able to since I was 4 or 5 years old. (I’m 28 now. Does that make me an “old head”? I hope not…) I grew up playing basketball video games on the PS1 & PS2, starting out with titles like NBA Live ’98, NBA 2K2, and the NBA Street series.
I took a break from video games in the PS3 era, but when I received a PS4 in 2017, I jumped into 2K17 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy being able to play with friends who live in different states, along with players from around the world. One of the things I love most about this sport is how it can unite people from all walks of life. It’s fun to see how my real-world basketball knowledge translates onto the virtual court. In 2K, I’m a team player who will do what’s needed of me to help get the win. Nothing frustrates me more than selfish players, or players who are unable to learn the tendencies of the game. If you play your role and play smart, success will come naturally.
Outside of my interest in basketball, I work a 9-5 job for an awesome company that helps provide clean drinking water to people in need. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, and watching 90s Nickelodeon cartoons. I’ve been looking for a way to turn my love of 2K into a fun and purposeful hobby, and I think the Select league will be the perfect opportunity. Thanks.
