For the first time in a sports video game, broadcast teams will change from game to game.
The latest NBA 2K17 trailer showcases the dynamic new commentary which will be used in the upcoming game, and even features a freestyle cypher between the "Inside The NBA" crew.
Among the 11 voices that will be heard on the latest edition of the NBA 2K franchise are: Kevin Harlan, Greg Anthony, Chris Webber, Steve Smith, Brent Barry, Doris Burke, Clark Kellogg, David Aldridge, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, and Shaq. Harlan and Anthony will be the lead commentary team, but for the first time ever gamers will get to experience the sounds of secondary announcers throughout their season.
“It’s no different than when I’m doing the job on TV,” Doris Burke says. The announcers contribute little-known factoids during game action as well, like Webber praising James Harden, who finished fourth in three-point play opportunities last season, for being “so good at finishing and-1s.”
If you preorder NBA 2K17, which will release on September 20th, you can play as the legendary '92 Dream Team and you'll receive a special USAB MyPLAYER jersey to fully customize your USA Basketball experience.
Even if you don't care much for the customizable MyPLAYER gear, the pre-order is worth it for the Dream Team alone. If interested, find out more info here.
