Last week, the highly anticipated NBA 2K, and there have been mixed reviews on the latest version; I’m not here to break down the game. For the second year in a row, the video game features the 12 WNBA teams.
Unfortunately, we won’t see most of the WNBA improvements until the next generation of consoles with Sony’s PS5 and Microsoft’s Series X version of NBA 2K21.
Breanna Stewart was featured in NBA 2K20, but was out nursing a torn Achilles tendon last season. She suffered the injury in April of 2019, playing overseas in the Euroleague.
Before the Seattle Storm took on the Los Angeles Sparks on Friday evening, Stewart shared her thoughts on the female player storyline in this year’s version of the My Player Mode.
“And then to create a female My Player is really exciting, and I am looking forward to having that function. I feel there will be even more people involved, and hopefully, even more guys playing as female My Players.”
The Storm went on to beat the Sparks 90 to 89 on a game-winning shot by Jewel Loyd as time expired over Sparks guard, Brittney Sykes. The Seattle Storm would go on to improve their record to 15-3. They were also able to pull one and a half ahead of the Sparks at the time.
After the game, Loyd stated that the game felt like a playoff game against Los Angeles. The two teams could obviously see each other again during the playoffs.
“For us, this was a playoff game,” Loyd said. “You have two really good teams trying to get into a rhythm before going into playoffs. You know, every time we play LA it’s always a really good game. It’s what you want to see. You want to see good competition throughout the game. You don’t want to see constant blowouts, you don’t want to see no effort. Both teams were playing really hard, and that’s what you watch sports for. All that excitement all the way down to the buzzer.”
