Australia's National Basketball team, the Boomers, is fielding its best squad since the days of Andrew Gaze heading into this year's Olympics in Rio. With four NBA Champions on the squad — Matthew Dellevadova, Andrew Bogut, Patty Mills and Aron Baynes — and a number one draft pick, Australia's team is, on paper, looking better than ever.

In 2K17 they'll need to use that James Harden beard technology to give Patty some facial hair.

In real life, with injuries to Dante Exum and Andrew Bogut, and with (second) number one draft pick Ben Simmons sitting out to concentrate on his rookie season, Australia's will probably struggle once they make it out of the group stages. But on paper, or in bits and bytes, the team has potential for days — and for the first time ever, Aussie fans of NBA 2K will get to experience that potential as the team will debut in the next game in the series, NBA 2K17. They are the first national squad not based out of the United States of America to be officially featured in an NBA 2K game.

The game is due out September 16, a month after the Olympics have wrapped, but I doubt that will temper the excitement of Australian basketball fans. And the NBL and Euroleague players who will make their debut in a video game will undoubtedly be excited as well.

The team being fielded in the game;
David Andersen
Cameron Bairstow
Aron Baynes
Andrew Bogut
Ryan Broekhoff
Matthew Dellavedova
Dante Exum
Chris Goulding
Joe Ingles
Kevin Lisch
Damian Martin
Patrick Mills
Brock Motum

Hopefully we'll be able to transfer Ben Simmons and Thon Maker into the squad by the time the game comes out.

*Update* The team roster has been updated to reflect a minor change in the line-up.
