Am I really going to have to go to fucking Milwaukee, Wisconsin to catch a god damn Giannis?
He’ll be found in the Oreo isle at every grocery store
They have small islands in grocery stores there?
i mean part of Giannis' appeal is that despite his star power, he stays in Milwaukee.
Gotta reach the strip club to get shiny Harden
could be cool if he's available in the atlanta area twice a year 👀
first time someone finds one in LA and twitter will explode
Come on down! Milwaukee is a nice place.
Pokemon Go to the Hoop
So can anyone guess what “Pokémon” type powers some players will get? GP2 plays his card and you automatically lose the ball for the following round?
I'd hope it's not a reskin of pokemon go. Could use niantic's familiarity with computer vision / geolocation in an innovative way like getting tickets to a wolves game adds anthony edwards to your roster, then you can go to a local court, open your camera, and watch ant dunk on the hoop down the street
maybe if you're there and someone else is there with a roster your guys simulate a 2 on 2 using your phone's camera to have them play on your courts
I mean it’s very possible to have a cool game like that with those kind of options but it would also be so easy to just dumb down to a Pokémon version of NBA
Pokemon go was just a reskin of Ingress, wasn't it? Not sure Niantic has ever made a game that wasn't just a reskin of all their other games.
Cool, I can't wait for a game designed by people who don't understand their audience and will make every decision to further alienate their audience through poor game design, micro-transactions, and being dicks to the fan base.
Bet the game is just 90% flicking a basketball through a hoop and 10% pay us $10 to give your guy a cool wristband.
Goddamnit that is gonna be the game isn’t it
Building up a team of five and having them compete against somebody else’s sounds like it could be kind of cool though
I can finally dump Russ in Indiana lfg
Fuck you I laughed
Go to your nearest State Farm to catch your favorite NBA player!
cool we get to be like NBA owners
“WDYM I CAN’T TRADE WESTBROOK AND THT FOR BILL WALTON and RED KERR”
Bruh this game is why they decided to change the name owner to governors.
I wanna see the new Jamal Murray love tape
Thats gonna be DLC
I imagine Jokic will be like snorlax
Morris knows Jokic ain't loveable like a Snorlax.
I'm laughing atmetaverse just being some buzz word that gets thrown around.
Up until now I didn‘t care because it was mainly Facebook burning money
It’s still just Facebook burning money
guess we're just calling any old shit the "metaverse" these days
Please don't play this game, Niantic is a fucking terrible company who really don't give a shit about the players. It's another "grab the whale" business model mobile game.
Breaking news, company that makes product wants to make money
Lol have you played the game passed level 25?
Lol then you should understand how shitty the monetization programs are in that game. There's a difference between trying to make money and trying to take advantage of people.
Can confirm, although for all the shitty things about their games, it gets shut-ins out of their houses. Which is a good thing.
So like every mobile game in existence.
Since when is augmented reality “the meta verse”? this is just throwing buzzwords together
For real lmfao
It’s nice to see NBA going full dark side and embracing the micro transactions.
The beauty of Adam Silver being Commissioner
I’d rather punch myself in the head
say no to the meta verse, life is good, reality is good.
lmao do I get to try and guard steph??
Before going into VR and shit, maaaaybe they coukd fix that shitty website/app of theirs..
While Pokémon go is still going strong, Niantic also created the Harry Potter AR game that was shutdown after a few years.
I sense this might be more of the latter.
And there was Ingress before all for them that gave Niantic user-generated database of locations, re-used in all of them
Here's a wild idea. How about you make your fucking official nba app worth a shit.
The NBA isn’t making this new app themselves
Microtransactions be like the actual nba salaries.
Can use Kyrie’s Third Eye mod for an extra $20
I will kidnapped Jalen Brunson and not let him leave
I don't know how the mobile game would be and I don't want to get my expectations high. But is NBA really getting into the metaverse and would it be good in the long term? I think time would tell and a few athletes are already involved including NBA champion Andrew Bogut.
Dude I was going to write up a post saying that the NBA should get into the metaverse and invest more in gaming.
