Will we get Michael Jordan in FIFA now?
Every once in awhile you come across a rather odd bit of news. Well today is that time, since 2K have announced that former professional footballer Thierry Henry will appear in NBA 2K17 which will be released this Friday.
You will be be able to catch a glimpse of the former Arsenal legend courtside during the home games of the San Antonio Spurs. Apparently he’s a big fan of the Spurs in real-life.
Not only will Thierry Henry be spotted in the crowd, in NBA 2K17’s Blacktop mode, where you can play different types of basketball games ranging from 1 vs 1 to 5 vs 5, Thierry Henry is available as a playable character, where you can test his skills against the greatest players of all time.
Take a look at screens of Thierry Henry in NBA 2K17 below.
“Being a basketball and NBA fan since I was a kid, I’m honoured to be the first football player ever to be playable in NBA 2K17. Seeing myself go toe to toe with the legends of the sport is an amazing feeling.”Thierry Henry on his appearance in NBA 2K17.
Don’t forget to start the online petition now for Maradona, Pele and of course, Adebayo Akinfenwa to be included in NBA 2K18.
NBA 2K17 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on September 16, 2016.
