Hey guys, itís Robby from Two Brothers Gaming again here with some more NBA 2K16 My Team Throwback Thursday card reviews! Every week in NBA 2K16ís My Team mode, there are Throwback Thursday cards released with specific playersí highlight seasons. Each week here on Operation Sports, Iíll be highlighting these players and showing you stats, badges, individual attributes, and everything related to each player. If you pull one of these cards, youíll know what to do with them! Donít forget to watch the accompanying video review as well.
Letís get into it:
1998 Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
Kobeís sophomore season was his first All-Star appearance despite only starting one game, but he began the progression that defined him as a player during this season. This card is comparable to the Moments Michael Jordan that we haveóextremely quick and athletic, with the ability to finish at the rim. This was also a season that saw him shoot 34% from three point land, earning him a solid enough Staning Shot 3 rating to be useful to many My Team players. Donít overpay for him thinking heíll be vintage Kobe, but if you get him at a solid price, he can be useful.
2010 Gerald Wallace, Charlotte Bobcats
Wallace is the Swiss Army knife of My Team cards. He does a bit of everything on the court, though this year heís hurt by a lack of badges compared to prior years. The 2010 season was his lone All-Star campaign, and it was well-deserved, with averages of 18 points, 10 rebounds, and over a steal and block per game on 48% field goal shooting and 37% three point shooting. Heís a good guy to stash on the bench and use in all sorts of situations, but he wonít be OUTSTANDING at a particular thing.
2012 Jerryd Bayless, Toronto Raptors
Bayless actually shot better from the three point line than inside it during this season at 42.3% versus 42.2%. Other than that, thereís not a lot of value here. Bayless scored 10 points per game off the bench for Toronto and is a solid real-life player, but wonít find footing with a lot of My Team squads due to better options being available.
2011 Samuel Dalembert, Sacramento Kings
Dalembert has always played well in fits and starts, and the 2011 season represented his only campaign in Sacramento. Dalembert posted 8 points and 8 rebounds per game to go with a block and a half. There isnít much to say about this cardóitís average, and probably wonít be used much.
2008 Paul Pierce, Boston Celtics
Yes, the Truth is here! If youíre lucky enough to get your hands on Paul Pierceís 2008 card, remember his efficiency. His scoring average was 19.6, but he did so on 46% from the field and 40% from the three point line, as well as his usual stellar free throw shooting. Pierce can shoot the midrange, he can shoot the trey, and he can win you games down the stretch. His My Team card is no different, just donít play him like heís Lebron James Ė Heís a shooter moreso than a posterizer.
Thatís it for this week. If youíd like to see the players in-game, be on the lookout for more videos, and if you have any questions I can be reached on Twitter @twobrosgaming.
