NBA 2K18 is coming back BIG this year!
After the past iterations of 2K basically just provided an updated roster with only a few new features added, the team over at 2K finally put their foot down and came to body the gaming world this September.
Yesterday 2K unveiled their new Career mode called “Neighborhoods,” with a whole new concept. They’ve created a living, breathing city populated by us players who want to become BIG BALLERS, no Lonzo.
“Neighborhoods” is built as a big hub world, think GTA V online open world without getting clapped up every 5 seconds.
In the hub you have the option to grab your squad and hit up the barbershop for some quick fades, run down to the gym to get your weight up, walk over to the basketball court to get your ass violated by someone who bought more VC than you, and that’s all before cashing out at the nearest Foot Locker for some new J’s.
“Neighborhoods” is set to be the meeting grounds for past modes: MyPark, Pro-Am, and MyCareer and the best part is that your character’s skill rating is universal through every different mode.

2K knows what we want out here, a reason to calmly dub NBA Live 18 and with this announcement it’s looking like we got our reason.
Twitter took no time to start going in on NBA Live 18 after the announcement, dropping gems like these…
You already know this meme was gonna make its way here

2K only wanna put effort in the game when NBA live is coming out the same day. Last year they gave us the same game. #wedidntforget

Realistically it’s a dub for NBA Live now
Think about how crazy this is for a second…
Like really, really crazy
You can go from crossing someone up to getting a fade in the new 2K 😂 https://t.co/1j9mvNvl5a
