Former Bull Bobby Portis calls out NBA 2K for his appearance

Bobby Portis has gone through a lot of changes over his four year NBA career. 

He went from a player who rarely attempted 100 3-pointers in a season, to one of the more aggressive stretch fours in the league, regularly shooting near 200 3-pointers per season.

On top of the changes in his game, Portis has made changes in his appearance too. He has switched up his on-court style often in the league. Portis rocked a (possibly Rondo inspired) headband look early in his career and has worn his hair in a variety styles, mostly with longer hair.

Learning from the OG

Despite Portis' many looks, the NBA 2K series has not updated his appearance in awhile and Portis took to Twitter to let it be known that he has indeed noticed. 

The way Portis' avatar appears in the game makes him look like he has "[been] in college the last couple years". And his 2K avatar does in fact look very similar to his college self. 

"Ronnie 2K", the digital marketing director at 2K, interacts with players and fans often on social media and he made sure to let Portis know that he will work on getting the new-look Bobby into the game. 

NBA 2K20 features Chicago natives Anthony Davis (on the normal cover) and Dwayne Wade on the Legend Edition cover. The game is available for pre-order now and will hit shelves on September 6, 2019.

Lincoln-Way HS hosts D-Wade's summer camp featuring Khalil Mack, others

On Saturday, day two of Dwyane Wade’s Celebrity Sports Academy took place in southwest suburbs of Chicago with some very special guests on-hand.

The event took place over four days in July. The first part of the camp took place in Miami on July 6 and 7, with the second part taking place in Chicago on July 19 and 20 at Lincoln-Way Central High School.

The 3x Champ was here today 💪🏻

Over the two days Wade and co. worked with campers on a variety of athletics skills tied to basketball, soccer, football, and cheer. The camps primarily focused on the fundamentals and life lessons that can be learned through sports.

Wade always promises to come through with great guests for the youth during the Celebrity Sports Academy and he definitely produced this weekend.

Some of the great guests that came through over the two days in Chicago included (but weren’t limited to): Chicago Red Stars defender Arin Wright, Sky forward Cheyenne Parker and Bears linebacker Khalil Mack.

The Wade Sports Academy ultimately strives to “develop the physical side of our young athletes, but also that of their mental game and personal confidence.” They continued to do all they could to meet that goal this summer and you can ultimately call the first year of the program with post-NBA retirement D-Wade at the helm a success, with the help of some of Chicago’s top athletes.
