As we approach the much anticipated September 15th release date of NBA 2K18, 2K Sports continues to reveal details of the new and improved basketball game including the epic playlist, the classic "All Time" rosters and now, special edition commentators. 

Today, NBA 2K has announced that Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett will be featured as guest commentators for select games alongside lead announcer Kevin Harlan and others - as shown in the video below. The newest trailer for the game not only showcases Kobe and KG's ability on the mic, but also provides us our first look at the NBA 2K18 cover athlete, Kyrie Irving, wearing #11 for the Boston Celtics. 

Late last week NBA 2K18 revealed each teams' 15-man "All Time" roster, which obviously includes Kobe on the Lakers as well as Garnett on the Wolves and Celtics' "All-Time" squads. A few weeks prior, 2K Sports released the massive 50-track playlist for NBA 2K18 which features a who's who of hip-hop legends such as Mobb Deep, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Naughty By Nature and even Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A.

NBA 2K18 will be available on September 15th for those who pre-order, and September 19th for everyone else. The NBA 2K18 Legend Edition, which features Shaq on the cover, will cost $100, while the Legend Edition Gold will cost $150. Both versions will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

In the Legend Edition, gamers will receive a handful of Shaq content, including a poster, Panini trading cards, and stickers, in addition to in-game items like 100,000 virtual currency and 20 weekly MyTEAM packs. The Legend Edition Gold gives you all that comes with the Legend Edition, plus a Lenticular, more trading cards, 250,000 currency, 40 packs, and more.
