Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett Join the Booth in NBA 2K18
Ryan Bloom / Aug 28th, 2017 No Comments
NBA legends Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett will join the broadcast booth as special guest commentators in NBA 2K18, 2K announced. Bryant and Garnett, who each starred in the league for two decades, will handle analysis and provide insight alongside play-by-play man Kevin Harlan on a rotating basis.
Each of these two guest commentators will only appear in special matchups. Among the highlights shown in the trailer, Bryant joins Harlan for a game between the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant’s former team, and their rivals, the Boston Celtics. Garnett is in the booth for a Minnesota Timberwolves-Toronto Raptors matchup.
The NBA 2K18 presentation trailer can be viewed below. It’s also the first opportunity to see cover star Kyrie Irving on the floor as a member of the Celtics.
In games without Bryant and Garnett, the commentary is expected to be a revolving door of multiple broadcast teams. NBA 2K17 featured Greg Anthony as the regular analyst, but also had games with Chris Webber, Steve Smith, Brent Barry and Doris Burke taking over duties.
NBA 2K18 launches Sept. 19, with The Prelude available to download for free on Sept. 8.
