NBA 2K Mobile continues their recent slew of themes, this time as a nod to some of the NBA’s greatest passers. You will be able to experience the art of the facilitator with their new Playmakers pack, which is out on March 25th.
Passing is one of the most important aspects of basketball as it can throw defences off and lead to quick baskets. This pack includes some of the best to ever do it, and some of them were more than just amazing facilitators.
Leading the way is John Stockton who is the NBA’s all-time leader in assists and steals. When you think of Stockton, you automatically think of an elite point guard.
One of the greatest players of all-time, he also was a deadly three-point shooter and overall lockdown defender. His stellar play would help lead the Utah Jazz to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances in 1997 and 1998 along with fellow legend Karl Malone, who is second on the NBA’s all-time scoring list only behind Kareem Abdul-Jabaar.
Stockton finished his career with over 15,000 assists which is a whopping 3,000 more than Jason Kidd, who’s second on the all-time list. He’s also a 10-time All-Star and led the league in assists nine times while also making the All-NBA First Team twice.
Other big names in the set include Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson, each labelled as a Diamond card. Johnson is perhaps the craftiest passer ever and ranks fifth all-time in assists. Not only that, many consider him one of the top five or six basketball players to ever play the game.
The same can be said about Bird and Robertson as well. Bird was famously known for his three-point shooting ability but was also a phenomenal passer of the ball. If he wasn’t drilling shots from beyond the arc, he was dishing it to his teammates.
Meanwhile, Robertson was one of the best all-around players ever. He famously averaged a triple-double in one season in 1962, and currently is sixth all-time in assists, right behind Johnson.
