EA’s NBA LIVE 18 had an impressive launch, thanks to many awesome features like The One, an all-new dynamic game experience centered around the player, the choices they make, and how they will define their legacy on the court.
Basketball in Spain produces some of the best international players to ever step foot on an NBA court. In addition, both of Spain’s women and men’s national teams dominate the European leagues, and are always in medal contention when the Olympics come around.
