NBA 2K18 Features Kobe Bryant & Kevin Garnett Special Guest Commentary - Playground For MyPLAYER?

EB Games in Australia, of all places, has posted some new and interesting NBA 2K18 details. I’m sure we will hear much more about it at the Run the Neighborhood event on August 31.

MyPLAYER. Build your career in NBA games, hit the courts in the Playground or join the Pro-Am circuit. Featuring new MyPLAYER upgrade and endorsement systems and so much more.

MyTEAM. Collect and compete with player cards featuring NBA legends from yesterday and today. Construct a salary-capped team for the all-new Super Max season mode, or draft cards for a 5v5 tournament in the new Pack & Playoffs mode.

ELITE GAMEPLAY. The new motion system engine brings player control to a new level of realism. Now, dribbling and off the ball movement are no longer driven by animations. This groundbreaking technology dynamically creates animations to deliver the best gameplay experience possible. You are now in complete control.

SPECIAL GUEST COMMENTARY. The biggest roster of broadcasting talent in sports videogame history gets even bigger. Legends Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett join the booth on a rotating basis to lend their expertise to the broadcast.

LEGENDARY TEAMS. The greatest players in NBA history from all 30 teams, together on all-time franchise rosters for the very first time. Compete in Play Now to decide once and for all which franchise’s all-time greats reign supreme.

Thanks for the tip Hustle Westbrook!

  1. Earlier on there was more in the description about MyCareer. They said you go from elementary school to the NBA. I always liked the story modes, but I'm sure people here won't appreciate that. At least we have badge progress though.
    Imagine having the face of an adult and the body of a child during elementary 😂
    Hopefully 2k has some sort of system in place that can adjust our face scans and make us look like kids again. Sh*t would be extremely next level.
    It's good to see them still adding to the commentary teams. I just hope the new commentators are given more dialogue. I like it because there are some I like, like Doris and Kellogg, and others I hate like Webber. Chris sounds like hes talking through clenched teeth or something. Steve Smith is so bad at times its funny. But they all add variety which is what I like. I'd like to see more state banners and a more broadcast feel overall. It goes without saying that the crowd and atmospher need improving.

    I just hope it's more open and not so linear. I didn't play last year but the year before, with the Spike Lee story, I hated how scripted the story was. When it's suppose to be MY story and I'm forced into a story that doesn't resemble me or my family it really takes me out of the mode and kills the immersion factor. I mean creating a white character and then being part of a black family just doesn't work.
    This might sound really ignorant so go easy on me if it is. Regarding this quote...

    ... What does that mean when it comes to signature dribbling and ball-handling animations?
    I didn't play the game a ton last year but when I did, the ball-handling didn't feel very player-specific. Can we still expect an Allen Iverson crossover to feel drastically different from a Tim Hardaway crossover? Will the really elite or unique ballhandlers have specific signature packages? Or has the game been heading back down the road it did five years ago where they moved to something like five core generic packages to choose from?
    Park players are gonna explode seeing this. They don't like the fact that it seems like MyPark is gone. I'm more interested since I was never a park player anyway. It's gonna be a long week lol.

    I know in the gameplay blog they said the return of signature dribbles so I am assuming they didn't get rid of them maybe they are just implemented in a different way, but I see the confusion because no animations does make me skeptical about how this new movement system works.

    I assume that they meant their were no more two man animations.

    The 2K Leaks twitter account is right again!

    Was just thinking the same thing. And he's been saying that Barkley isn't playable but will join the crew pre-game/halftime team.

    Ah, thank you. I will have to go back and re-read that blog to see if I can get a better grasp on things.

    Interesting. I look forward to more detail on that.

    As long as this means less 2-minute long spiels from monotone Webber, I'm all for adding more guys

    I like his regular commentary, like his excitement on dunks and what not, but man it's a chore listening to him. Kevin asks him a question, then he just rambles for minutes, ignoring all action. It sounds like him and Kevin are doing an interview, not recording commentary for a video game lol And it's odd because his real life commentary isn't like that at all
    Pretty silly 2k didn't do an Audio blog by now, so we could've found out through them about this ;) pretty cool, I think Kobe will be interesting, Garnett too if he sticks to his normal talking ways he does on TNT Area 51. Somehow guys sound different, JVG on NBA Live is not nearly the guy we hear on TV. Same with Webber. Brent Barry sounds very natural. Kerr did too.

    Elementary school but still no Summer League? That's kind of silly imo

    Yea if all this holds true and there is no summer league in my career that's not gonna make any sense. Looking forward to the info

    Yeah, something is really up with Webber. But I haven't heard him a great deal on TV, either. In game he's the worst IMO. I like Barry too. I love/hate Steve Smith in the same way I did Emmitt Smith and Magic when they were in TV. They are bad in a funny way. I've been playing some 2K15 and Kerr was outstanding. I forgot how good he was. I've never been a big Greg Anthony fan but I always thought he was ok. Kerr was waaayyy better. I'm just really hoping crowd and atmosphere sounds are addressed.
