"Just like my counterparts in the NBA, I grew up playing NBA 2K," said Candace Parker, Los Angeles Sparks forward. "After getting myself scanned and integrated into NBA 2K20 earlier this summer, I was amazed at how 2K is able to replicate women's basketball at such a realistic level. You can tell they are taking the time to capture the essence of the WNBA and have created an immersive experience that all fans of basketball will love."

Many of WNBA's top stars like including Parker, A'ja Wilson of the Las Vegas Aces and Breanna Stewart of the Seattle Storm were scanned into NBA 2K20 earlier this year to create the most realistic simulation in the upcoming NBA 2K20.
