The news yesterday that Steve Kerr has been hired as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors will have ramifications for the NBA 2K series going forward. Kerr has been part of the commentary team since 2K12. Unless 2K Sports had planned ahead for this possibility, knowing for a while the interest he had in becoming a coach, it may be too late to switch him out of 2K15 in favor of someone else. Regardless, whether this year or the next, it will have to be done.
The poll posted two weeks ago on who fans would prefer replace Kerr, which has collected over 3200 votes, heavily favored the two most likely possibilities. They’re also the primary candidates to take over Kerr’s seat as the top color analyst for TNT broadcasts.
Chris Webber and Reggie Miller remained in a dead heat throughout the polling process. At one point last night a single vote separated them! As of publication they both hold 38% of the vote.
Interestingly both former players have been holdouts from being added to historic team rosters in the series. Fans are likely hoping should either end up as a commentator for the game, they’ll also sign off on having their likeness added to a classic team and/or MyTeam mode.
