For years NBA 2K has unanimously dominated the basketball sports game market, and this year is set to be no different. Given this, Dallas Mavericks fans interested in simulating games with their favorite team in a video game format will assuredly be looking ahead to NBA 2K24's release date of September 8.

2K has come under flak in recent years for repetitively putting out the "same game" year after year, but could this be the year that finally breaks the mold?

Only time will tell, nonetheless the game has a variety of new features and changes for single-player game modes such as the renowned MyCareer mode, as well as some cool Mavericks-specific wrinkles that may shift the perception of Mavs fans looking to buy NBA 2K24.

A Dallas Mavericks fan's guide to NBA 2K24

We aren't here to convince you to deploy all your resources toward a game that will be priced at $69.99 on next-gen consoles just for the standard edition ($99.99 for the "Black Mamba" edition, and $149.99 for the "25th Anniversary" edition).

However, 2K24 has garnered lots of positive reviews from content creators and video game talking heads so far. We simply want to give you the pros and cons to look ahead toward if you are a Mavericks fan buying this game, because this is the first time the game has looked this promising ahead of launch in quite some time.

Mavs fans should be excited to play this game as their favorite team, as stopping Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving will be hard for your opponent. Dallas also added plenty of solid role players and defenders that will make playing with the Mavs an effective and fun strategy.

It's not going to be the same excitement that Mavs fans had for NBA 2K22 when Doncic and Dirk Nowitzki were on the cover, but it should still end up being a good game.
