2K Sports has announced new information regarding NBA 2K18. Retired players Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett will appear in the upcoming game as special guest broadcasters.

In a recent announcement trailer, the video features lead announcer Kevin Harlan having the pair open up about playing as well as talk about current players they may know. Interesting fact about the entire conversation was that the pair recorded their lines together.

At 1:24 into the video viewers can get a first-look at Kyrie Irving sporting a green Boston Celtics jersey. Before being traded Irving was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers before being traded to Boston last week.


Speaking of Irving, the publisher recently confirmed that they would release a separate cover with Irving in a Celtics uniform after the game launches.
