Over the past few years, 2K Sports found ways to innovate its NBA 2K basketball series, with superstars like Michael Jordan and Larry Bird joining the ranks through a number of modes. For its latest effort, NBA 2K14, the team turned to LeBron James, one of the prominent players for the Miami Heat. He's the focus of a new mode called Path To Greatness.
In the mode, which is exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, you'll be able to guide James' career however you see fit, whether you want to continue earning championships for the Miami Heat, or if you feel nostalgic, send him packing back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. You'll run across a number of scenarios, some of which you might not even expect. Can you imagine him as a Denver Nugget…or maybe even a New York Knick?
The game features various scenarios, some of which will affect other NBA superstars as they move around the league. These moves could very well change the shape of the league as we know it – and could turn a bottom-of-the-barrel club into a championship team.
We'll see how this mode fares when NBA 2K14 slams it home October 4th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
