Latest NBA 2K16 promo video: #WINNING


The fine folks at 2K sports have a killer property in the NBA 2K series. It’s iconic.

They also know how to market it. Brilliantly.

Playing to the wheelhouse of gamers and NBA fans, here is the latest promo video for NBA 2K16. I expect one of the features this year is Stephen Curry can hit shots from roughly the Bay Bridge.

Klay Thompson calls himself and Stephen Curry the best-shooting backcourt

Then-Warriors coach Mark Jackson called Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson the best-shooting backcourt of all-time.

Curry isn’t ready to label himself the best individual shooter ever, but Thompson isn’t shy when asked about the Splash Brothers being the best-shooting backcourt.

I agree. I think so.

Steph is one of the best to ever play. I think I’m right there by him. We both led the NBA in 3s, we were No. 1 and 2. I don’t know if that has ever happened on the same team.

So, I think we’re the best shooting backcourt, maybe of all-time.

We still got a lot to prove, and I still think we are just scratching the surface of what we can be.

The questioner is unclear whether she’s referring to the present or all-time, but Thompson surely knows how Jackson’s statement influenced the terms of the conversation.

The Splash Brothers are definitely the best-shooting backcourt in the NBA right now.

I’d take them all-time, too. When Jackson made his assessment, I still gave the edge to the underrated Steve Nash-Quentin Richardson tandem. But in the two years since, Curry and Thompson have proven their shooting prowess.

I was fortunate enough to sit down with the NBA’s reigning MVP and Finals MVP Stephen Curry at the at the TPC Harding Park Golf Club (home of the 2020 PGA Championships) recently, and we got to talk about his love of golf and what it was like to play a round with President Barack Obama.

We also talked hoops, and what it will take for Golden State to go back-to-back, and you can see that conversation — and discussing the style and legacy of the Warriors — above.source: Getty Images
Curry, who was there on behalf of one of his sponsors, Degree antiperspirants (which involved deeply in motion analysis and the study of human movement, such as Curry golfing), also talked to me about if he has had any downtime to relax this summer.

“A little bit,” Curry said. “We’ve been moving around a lot this year, from place to place. Obviously there’s a lot of opportunity to celebrate what a great season it was, and obviously the new addition to our family. A lot has changed.

“But in the offseason I get out and play a little bit of golf, I stay moving that way, and then obviously you have to prepare for next season too and I’m already in that mindset. So it’s been a pretty crazy summer celebrating good things, great things, but there’s also been a good amount of time to reflect on how special it was.”
