Initially rumored, director Spike Lee's (Do the Right Thing, He Got Game) involvement in the next NBA 2K title was confirmed this morning, and now we can see some of the results of his efforts in a new video.

You won't find any gameplay footage in the trailer. Instead, you will find a presumably directed by Lee video emphasizing the importance of narrative basketball. After a narrated montage of empty courts and a few shots of standout moments in the game, Lee finishes the trailer saying, "Star in a Spike Lee Joint."

When Lee confirmed his involvement with the game today, he said the game would follow a young player through the trials and tribulations of being a top high school player. You can read more about the game, and learn its cover athletes, but heading here.
