The Warriors had an NBA-worst 15-50 record in the shortened regular season, yet Golden State remains on the front of everyone's minds. Just look at the first footage of next-gen NBA 2K21 gameplay for more proof.
Steph Curry played just five games due to injury and an illness at the end of the season. Klay Thompson missed the entire season while rehabbing a torn ACL. Yet the Splash Brothers still are featured prominently throughout the trailer.
Thompson shows off his deep stroke in warmups and then nails one in a road game against the Dallas Mavericks. Curry plays the hero, however, as he drains a game-winning 3-pointer over Mavs star Luka Doncic.
Warriors center Marquese Chriss wasn't as lucky as Steph and Klay. Chriss can be seen getting dunked on with authority from Tim Hardaway Jr., which, sure, OK.
Curry is ranked a 95 overall rating in the game, and Thompson is an 89 after missing an entire season.
NBA 2K21 was released in September, and the next-gen gameplay edition will be available on launch day for the new Xboxes (Nov. 10) and the PS5 (Nov. 12).
