Top 5 NBA Teams To Use In NBA 2K21

With NBA 2K21 being announced for this fall and new consoles coming, I thought I would give a quick look into my list of teams I am most excited to use. These are not gonna be the best teams, but more of a list of teams that I think will be exciting and make the 2K experience as amazing as possible.

5. Atlanta Hawks- The Atlanta Hawks may not be the best team in real life but NBA 2K is a different story. Using Trae Young in 2K is very very fun. He can shoot like Steph Curry, pass like Steve Nash, dribble like Kemba Walker, and surprisingly can finish very well even though he is very small for the NBA. Him paired with two great lob threats like Clint Capela and John Collins will create many highlight level plays. The Hawks will also have a top 10 draft pick which could add even more excitement.

4. Golden State Warriors- The Warriors had an off year in real life due to injuries to their star backcourt, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. In this upcoming NBA 2K, the Warriors will have Curry and Thompson back, as well as a top 5 draft pick (they should be praying for James Wiseman), and Andrew Wiggins. They will have scorers all over which should make them up a very fun team to play fast paced with.

3. Milwaukee Bucks- There are only 3 reasons why the Bucks made this list. Firstly, they have Giannis Antetokounmpo. Secondly, Giannis in 2K is unguardable. Thirdly, did I mention they have Giannis? Yea Giannis in 2K is like the hulk, He’s extremely fast, can handle the ball, is very strong, dunks on every play, and can also shoot a little now. The rest of the Bucks team aside from Kris Middleton is okay but Ginnais automatically makes them one of the most fun and exciting teams to play in 2K with.

2. New Orleans Pelicans- The Pelicans are going to be one of the most used teams in NBA 2K21 guaranteed. They have great young talent, they have shooters, lob threats, defenders, and rebounders but the only thing they don’t have is experience. Thankfully in a video game that does not matter too much. You will easily be able to throw lobs all over the place from Lonzo Ball to Zion Williamson, you have a mini Kevin Durant in Brandon Ingram, and you have amazing veterans in JJ Redick, Jrue Holiday, and Derrick Favors. This Pelicans team will be a nightmare to defend in 2K.

1. Los Angeles Lakers- This one was a given. When is playing with Lebron James in a video game not gonna be fun? He was pretty much created in a video game. And now he has an elite big man in Anthony Davis to run pick and rolls with and feed the ball in the post, Dwight Howard and Javale Mcgee to throw lobs too, and Danny Green and JR Smith to launch threes with. The Lakers are my current favorites to win the NBA championship this year and you better believe they will be just as good and probably better in NBA 2K21.

    Why Pro Athletes Get Paid So Much Money

    The highest-paid neurosurgeon in the United States makes around $500,000 a year. Their education takes between 14 to 16 years, which means they are well into their 20s when they start working, and they probably won’t be making anywhere near $500,000 until they reach their forties. The average salary of a professional soccer player is 3 million a year, and they’ll be making that sum before their mid-twenties. Is this gap unfair? After all, professional athletes don’t save lives as surgeons do. They don’t have to study for decades, get into school debt, or spend any sleepless nights during residency. The reason behind this difference is a combination of factors, and as with most things in the modern economic system, we have to take supply and demand into consideration.

    Warriors Star Stephen Curry Ejected from Game for Throwing Mouthguard

    The Golden State Warriors made their 122-120 comeback Wednesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies, despite the odds being stacked against them after the team’s star Stephen Curry was ejected late in the game’s fourth quarter. The ejection–a rarity for Curry–occurred after Curry saw Jordan Poole take a shot and miss it instead of passing it to him. Curry then clapped his hands at Poole after what Curry later said was an ill-advised 3-point attempt by his teammate. As he was running back on defense, Curry, in a moment of frustration, took out his mouthguard and threw it on the court.

    Joe Burrow leads Bengals back to Super Bowl, Eagles join them

    Last weekend, the early heat in the playoff game predictions gradually subsided. The weekend wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible either.
    This matchup features two strong teams with strong run games and fronts on defense. No matter how many offensive playmakers are on the field, it will be determined up front. Last week’s rout of the Giants by the Eagles was impressive, but the 49ers’ victory over Dallas at home was close. In that contest, the San Francisco offense had some issues, but Brock Purdy overcame them to earn his sixth consecutive victory as a starter.

    Mikaela Shiffrin Breaks Lindsey Vonn’s Record for World Cup Wins

    US skier Mikaela Shiffrin made history with her 83rd win after racing the giant slalom at the Kronplatz resort in the Italian Dolomites, securing her place as one of the greatest skiers of all time. With this win, Shiffrin beats Lindsey Vonn’s women’s World Cup skiing record. Of Shiffrin’s 83 wins, 51 came in slalom, 18 in giant slalom, five in super-G, and three in downhill. This season has brought Shiffrin nine wins as she set a record for women’s Alpine racers and inched one win closer to the all-time mark for a skier of any gender.

    Cowboys’ Tony Pollard Breaks Leg, Will Require Surgery

    The Dallas Cowboys took a major hit to their offense Sunday in their NFC playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers when running back Tony Pollard had to leave the game with a fractured left fibula and high ankle sprain, sources say.Pollard suffered the injury in the game’s first half, with 1:24 left to go, when he was “rolled up” after an eight-yard catch.

    What Tom Brady Has Said About Retiring From the NFL

    Over the previous few seasons, Tom Brady has received numerous inquiries about his NFL retirement, with each postseason serving as a new opportunity for him to answer the question. After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were eliminated from the playoffs following a 31-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the 45-year-old quarterback had to remind supporters that he would be “taking it one day at a time.”
