NBA 2K13: 4 Best Players to Establish Your Franchise

Luan MadaniCorrespondent IOctober 3, 2012

The newest installment of the NBA 2K series brings about new features and mind-blowing graphics to make the game more realistic than ever. Avid fans of the series are sure to be thrilled with NBA 2K13 and will look to continue to establish their dominance. 

To establish a dominance, one would need a stable of players to run the court. The Miami Heat in reality have the big three that helped them win the NBA Title in 2012, however, a game of this magnitude needs a little more.

LeBron James, one of the most talented players in the NBA, would be an ideal place to begin your draft. With an overall game rating of 98, James's recent success has given him the praise that he has been looking for since beginning his career. 

In reality, inconsistency and lack of production in the fourth quarter is what James is known for. However, in the 2012 playoffs, James went off and recorded the best play of his career that earned him both a ring and a high rating in the game. 

Next, future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant would be a sure-fire bet to boost anyone's team. Rated at 93, Kobe Bryant is playing well, despite getting older. His numbers have stayed consistent and he has been the leader of the Los Angeles Lakers. He's proved to be a reliable player in previous installments of the series. 

Kevin Durant, rated at a 94, is a must have on any team. The leader of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Durant showed that he is one of the most valuable players in the NBA. Posting a career high .496 field goal percentage and 8.0 rebounds per game, Durant complements James and Bryant in terms of super star power. 

Rated at a 92, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose would be a solid pick. Even through missing most of the 2012 NBA season due to injury, Rose has consistently been a top scorer in the league. In many eyes, Rose is also the reason the Chicago Bulls have had a recent resurgence into one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. 

Winning the MVP Award in 2011, he became the youngest player ever to receive the honor. On top of that, the Bulls have been to the postseason every year since they drafted Rose in 2008. 

NBA 2K13 is a game that will leave every NBA fan and gamer happy due to a fun gaming engine and intense, sharp graphics. 

The combination above is one of many that is surely give gamers a chance at NBA glory and it will be interesting to see if the players listed can continue their success on the court this NBA season.
