nba playgrounds players annouced

Once the hype machine starts rolling, it can hardly be stopped.

NBA Playgrounds, the next-gen basketball arcade title that will be released in May, but the details that are getting released are getting potential players more and more interested, and perhaps starting to get more attention also from the more casual gamers.

The 2-on-2 street basketball title will feature both legends and today stars. Among the legends, Saber Interactive declared the presence of the following:

  • Ray Allen
  • Shawn Kemp
  • Allen Iverson
  • Chauncey Billups
  • Dell Curry
  • James Worthy
  • Dominique Wilkins
  • Billy Cunningham
  • Magic Johnson
  • Shaquille O’Neal
  • Larry Johnson
  • Wilt Chamberlain
  • Grant Hill
  • Maurice Cheeks
  • Chris Webber
  • Chris Mullin
  • Clyde Drexler
  • Alex English
  • Spud Webb

With such a selection, there is something to suit every taste.

Most likely, though, players will prefer today’s stars. And the game should feature players from each NBA team. This is the list of the known players:

  • James Harden
  • C.J. McCollum
  • Monta Ellis
  • Andrew Bogut
  • Elfrid Payton
  • Andre Drummond
  • Stephen Curry
  • Kawhi Leonard
  • Brandon Ingram
  • Anthony Davis
  • Buddy Hield
  • Jrue Holiday
  • Carmelo Anthony
  • Chris Paul
  • Dwyane Wade
  • John Wall
  • Kevin Durant
  • DeAndre Jordan
  • Dwight Howard
  • Derrick Rose
  • Dirk Nowitzki
  • LeBron James
  • Russell Westbrook
  • Kristaps Porzingis
  • Jimmy Butler
  • Pau Gasol
  • Kyrie Irving
  • Zach LaVine
  • DeMar DeRozan
  • DeMarre Carroll
  • Ricky Rubio
  • Kevin Love
  • Paul Millsap
  • Rudy Gobert
  • Miles Plumlee
  • Rajon Rondo
  • Blake Griffin
  • Trey Burke
  • Damian Lillard
  • Gordon Hayward
  • George Hill
  • Thon Maker.

There are enough players also to lure international NBA fans (Porzingis, Nowitzki, Gasol, and so on). More players are expected to be announced in the coming days and weeks.

NBA Playgrounds will be out in May on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Switch for $20. No physical copies will be produced.
