Conversation Piece: Kudos to NBA Live ’19

For a quick second, in the name of inclusion, let’s give kudos to NBA Live ’19. Not only are they going to allow players to create female ballers, those female ballers will get to experience the game in the same way the male ballers do.

EA Sports took a step in this direction, last year, by including the WNBA in their game. Now, they’re going a major step forward by letting players create their own female superstar.

My only worry is how this will translate to online play. It’s gotta be one thing when you’re an African-American baller headed to the multiplayer courts (I can tell you stories). It can be another when you see a woman calling “Next!”

With that said, I’m glad games are going down this path. Very glad, indeed.
