Presentation is a big part of sports games, and the NBA 2K series has historically had one of the best overall packages. Commentary is a huge part of that, and today's NBA 2K17 trailer not only goes behind the scenes with the principles, but also gives you a flavor of what's in store.

New for this year is an expanded booth. Ex-players Chris Webber, Steve Smith, and Brent Barry, and former sideline reporter and analyst Doris Burke join Kevin Harlan and Greg Anthony at times to give even more flavor and diversity to the game's commentary. Check out some of the new content – including an amusing clip from the studio show – in the trailer.
