Every year around this time, the NBA 2K series begins releasing it trailers in anticipation for its October release. For years, the 2K series has been the best basketball game available to fans and this year looks to be no different as they had already began releasing mini-trailers featuring James Harden, Stephen Curry, and Anthony Davis.
Now 2K has officially released its trailer on their official YouTube page entitled #Winning and it features a number of NBA stars including Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. The trailer shows off the new graphics and animations for the game all with DJ Khaled’s ‘All I Do Is Win’ playing in the background:
Unfortunately for Bryant, he has seen his 2K rating decrease in recent years as he has gotten older and dealt with a number of injuries throughout the last three seasons. His latest was the torn rotator cuff suffered in January, but Kobe recently returned to the court to begin shooting for the first time since his surgery.
The Lakers have been a struggle to play with in recent iterations of the 2K series, but considering the additions made to the team this off-season, more people may be able to suit up with the purple and gold this year. If nothing else, 2K’s franchise mode will allow fans to return the Lakers to their former glory in short order.[divide]
