We always talk about modes and gameplay details when it comes to new sports games, but today's NBA 2K17 trailer dives into something a little more nuanced – how to convey the emotion of the sport.

The trailer highlights a lot of the ways the game is trying to ratchet up the drama on the court. The crowd reaction to a last-second buzzer beater and the players' dejection after a loss. The emotional flourishes of players as they celebrate a good shot and let everyone know who's on top.

NBA 2K17 comes out September 20, and if this trailer doesn't get you excited for it, you might want to consult your physician.
