Every now and then, video games can warm the cockles of your heart. That’s the case with NBA 2K20 and a 15-year-old Make-A-Wish kid from Georgia named William Floyd. At just 18 months old, William went into heart failure and was diagnosed with a genetic disorder that causes muscle weakness and heart problems. His condition doesn’t allow him to play sports like other kids his age, so 2K Sports is letting William stay competitive in the virtual world by putting him in NBA 2K20.
William is the first non-NBA athlete to be authentically scanned into the game with his likeness and even some custom dance moves included. You can now download him on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. William’s in-game player model can be found within Quick Game mode as a free agent for you to add to a team of your choosing, as well as through MyCareer and MyLeague rosters.
“When we learned about William’s wish to visit 2K, the whole team was thrilled,” said Ronnie Singh, digital marketing director on NBA 2K (and better known as Ronnie 2K). “Learning about his journey was really humbling, and we wanted to find a way to make William’s wish come true in the biggest way possible. We couldn’t think of a better way to do that than bringing his passion to life in-game and giving millions of NBA 2K fans around the world the chance to enjoy William’s player model.”
