New Commentators Take the Mic in Latest NBA 2K17 Trailer

As fans gear up for another season of virtual basketball with NBA 2K17’s impending release, 2K has provided a glimpse at the new commentary teams making their way into this year’s title.

As shown in the trailer below, while Kevin Harlan and Greg Anthony will still be calling the action on the court, the third spot will be filled by a rotating lineup of broadcasters. NBA 2K veteran Doris Burke will make her debut in the broadcast booth as one of those third members, alongside brand-new commentators Chris Webber, Steve Smith, and Brent Barry. Meanwhile, David Aldridge will take Doris Burke’s spot on the court as sideline reporter. Additionally, the rambunctious trio of Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neil, and Kenny Smith will all make their return in 2K17 as studio hosts, but will also play a larger role within the game’s MyCareer mode, as the three will now interview the player’s customized superstar.

Those eager to return to the court can check out NBA 2K17’s “The Prelude” demo which released earlier today on PS4 and Xbox One, in advance of the game’s full release on those two platforms plus PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on September 20.
