As the wait continues, the Charlotte Hornets continue to look for things to do as the NBA season remains suspended.
The Charlotte Hornets have gone five straight days without basketball, and the wait seems like it will only get longer. In the meantime, fans can experiment with other things, so they can enjoy the game of basketball.
For Hornets fans, NBA 2K is one of the many things that they can play to see some form of basketball. An interesting game mode that fans can try out is NBA 2K20’s Blacktop mode.
In this game mode, fans can do however many players that they choose. However, three on three matchups are the most common game that 2K fans play. This game mode allows players to select any three players they want from a single team.
With this in mind, Hornets fans may be wondering who the best three players on the roster are that they can use in this game mode. For the Hornets, the best three players to use are Terry Rozier, Miles Bridges, and PJ Washington.
You may be wondering why I chose Terry Rozier over Devonte’ Graham, and the reason will not be surprising. Rozier is able to consistently shoot threes, while also providing energetic defense.
While Graham is the team’s best shooter, Rozier is able to shoot, while also scoring at a high rate at the rim. Graham has been improving all season at finishing at the rim, while Rozier has been crafty and consistent with his finishes.
Next, we have Miles Bridges, who is a no-brainer for your Hornets blacktop team. Bridges has a good verticle, and we all know that he can finish with some monster dunks at the rim.
Bridges has improved a lot since his rookie season, and he proved a lot of doubters wrong when he dominated in the Rising Stars Game. If your playing blacktop, you need a guy that can dunk on people like Bridges.
Finally, PJ Washington is the perfect fit for your three-man team because of his size, defense, athleticism, and offense. With those attributes, fans have occasionally seen Washington play center for the Hornets this season.
The most surprising part of Washington’s game has been his ability to shoot threes consistently. In just 58 games, Washington has made 86 three-pointers. His ability to do everything on the court makes him a great addition to a Hornets blacktop team.
With this three-man team, your blacktop team would be able to score in many ways. Also, these three players have primarily been starters all season for the Hornets.
Until the NBA unsuspends the season, NBA 2K may be the closest thing to professional basketball that we have. The NBA should have more information about the season in the coming weeks.
