Teen Stars in NBA 2K15 Thanks to Make-A-Wish Foundation

Wednesday April 2nd, 2014

NBA 2K15’s most inspiring player won’t be LeBron James or Kevin Durant, but Trevon Williams-King.

The 14-year-old is suffering from a dangerous blood disorder, so the Make-A-Wish Foundation helped Williams-King realize his dream: to visit the NBA 2K office and meet the team behind the best-selling game.

Making the trip to the headquarters of 2K developer Visual Concepts in a suburb near San Francisco, Williams-King not only got to meet the team and offer ideas on the next game, but he was also put into the game via motion capture and face digitalization.

 Bravo, 2K and Make-A-Wish.
