NBA 2K22 Features Every NBA Public Address Announcer In-Game

NBA 2K22 will feature every NBA public address announcer in-game for all consoles and PC. Fans will be able to listen to the real life play-by-play commentary from legendary announcers including Tommy Edwards (Chicago Bulls), Mike Walczewski (New York Knicks), Matt Cord (Philadelphia 76ers) and more.

Here’s the full list of PA announcers in the game:

  • Scott Moak – Sacramento Kings
  • Eric Smith – Los Angeles Clippers
  • Vince Marotta – Phoenix Suns
  • Lawrence Tanter – Los Angeles Lakers
  • Matt Pitman – Golden St. Warriors
  • Mark Fratto – Washington Wizards
  • Paul Porter – Orlando Magic
  • Patrick “Big Pat” Doughty – Charlotte Hornets
  • Herbie Kuhn – Toronto Raptors
  • Olivier Sedra – Brooklyn Nets
  • Eddie Palladino – Boston Celtics
  • Matt Cord – Philadelphia 76ers
  • Michael Baiamonte – Miami Heat
  • Mike Walczewski – New York Knicks
  • Mark Mason – Portland Trail Blazers
  • Shawn Parker – Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Dan Roberts – Utah Jazz
  • Kyle Speller – Denver Nuggets
  • Mario Nanni – Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Shawn Sullivan – Indiana Pacers
  • Tim Sinclair – Chicago Bulls
  • Sean Peebles – Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Eric Jensen – Milwaukee Bucks
  • Tommy Edwards – Classic Chicago Bulls
  • John Mason – Detroit Pistons
  • Roland Ruiz – San Antonio Spurs
  • Marcus Tucker – Memphis Grizzlies
  • Wild Wayne – New Orleans Pelicans
  • Sean Heath – Dallas Mavericks

Of note, Matt Thomas for the Houston Rockets wasn’t seen or heard in the trailer, but he is included. Ryan Cameron was dropped by the Atlanta Hawks, so they might have a generic PA announcer. We have followed up with 2K to get clarification.

“After last year, I think we all have a renewed appreciation for the noise and cheers that fill an NBA arena each night,” said Mike Walczewski, Public Address Announcer for the New York Knicks. “With the style and enthusiasm of every team’s PA announcer now in the game, I truly feel that NBA 2K22 players will experience the thrill and the drama of stepping onto their home-court firsthand.”

“From the fans to the PA announcers, each team truly has its own distinct atmosphere and energy,” said Matt Cord, Public Address Announcer for the Philadelphia 76ers. “NBA 2K22 is capturing the essence of each arena to further immerse players in the sights and sounds of a true NBA experience. I’m proud that I can help bring the game to life, especially for all the Sixers fans playing, because they feed off of me and I feed off of them. They are an incredibly passionate fanbase.”

  1. Oh ****...this is a big step! Next year I'm betting it will be the crowd noise update next. Seeing as last year it was hard to get crowd noise in an empty stadium lol
    Now sign up the actual refs to 2k!!
    I want to hear the PA announcer for the Knicks. PAAAAAAATRICK EWING!
    At the 0:49 mark of the Mavs PA Twitter video, you can see they've done something to the 2000's Dirk.
    But, the PA announcers for each team being in-game, is pretty remarkable. Hopefully, this means the atmosphere and audio have been worked on. Once they can get that to a place that creates more immersion, the games you play will feel more meaningful.
    I just wonder if they have commentary recorded for when players switch teams, will the generic PA announcer just call their names or what?

    Hopefully it has been done for all arenas

    I think they got them all. If you pause the vid with the 30 teams and when the logo flips they have the PA guys. I can see Mike Walczewski for the Knicks!
    That's actually incredible lol
    Press release.
    NBA 2K22, the next iteration of the leading basketball simulation series, is taking on a new level of realism by adding every NBA team's Public Address Announcer in-game. Revealed in a content series that lifts the curtains on the voices behind the mic of home arenas, ballers will be able to listen to the real life play-by-play commentary from legendary announcers including Tommy Edwards (Chicago Bulls), Mike Walczewski (New York Knicks), Matt Cord (Philadelphia 76ers) and more.

    That's awesome! Ideally, for this to be perfect, every announcer needs to record every player's name for both home (enthusiast) and road (casual voice) teams. I wonder if that was achievable. And if that's the case, then I wonder if this feature is on all versions of the game (might take some more disc space for all the audio files).

    Shouldn’t be that hard given they only need to say each name once, granted that’s 30 people having to record hundreds of names. I still wonder about classic teams though.

    I been pleading my case for Authentic Audio arena Atmosphere for years after Live 10
    If they finally do this I will be in tears of joy
    You know would be dope if 2k used the NBC music theme rights for their 2k games would be fire
    This is really cool! However... I have a bad feeling that "and this game... Is tied" will trigger every single time the game is tied and not in big moments like he actually does it...

    Sure sounds amazing but only makes me wonder what will happen in your franchise mode, what happens when new players get on the team, will they just be announced as a number ? Will they not be announced at all ? Or did they record for all the possible names in the game ?

    Yeah that 2000s Dirk looks pretty good at first glance. Glad to see they gave young Dirk some love too. Hopefully this means other legends have been touched up as well.
    I won’t lie. This is really cool! Great move ! I’m pretty old school so to hear the Lakers announcer say “Worthy” or the Knicks guy say “Ewing” is pretty exciting. I thought the Bulls announcer back in the day was Ray Clay?

    I love it. I went on and placed my preorder for the cross gen bundle after this. I normally wait until the MyLeague/MyNBA stuff is releases but this is exactly the kind of stuff that adds value to my biggest mode MyNBA. Well done. Sucks for my Hawks but oh well. I just hope crowd noise and atmosphere is touched on as well.

    They brought in the PA from 76-90 so not peak Bulls, but still, they managed to at least get one retired old fart :)

    Here's the full trailer. Each team will still release individual videos throughout the day.
    Damn, the Detroit Basketball call - which has already been in the game but is more authentic now - plus the classic Bulls PA announcer is tight.
    Definitely a cool feature for immersion sake and another little wrinkle for diehard NBA sim heads.

    Do rubber bands and laces on warm-up hoodies always have physics on PS5(I haven't got PS5 yet)? Dang, those impress me!
    And they did Kelly Olynyk dirty with that expression! They look great.
    okay 2k am not mad at you anymore...
    it's so hard to ignore you when marketing starts it's campaign
    let's be friends again!!!
    So cool that they added this to the game..
    ALL FINGERS crossed that half time show have finally got some needed changes
    Man, not to get too far ahead, but how do you maintain this through the years?
    Do you bring in these guys every cycle?
    This is so dope.

    Now this is the innovative 2K I remember! Dope is the word of the day!
    Seeing the Boston video for this might be enough to push me for a Day 1 buy. I'm kind of a sucker for little things like this. The gameplay blog yesterday was enough to get me interested (hope the defense works as good as it sounds) this is like a little icing on the cake.
    NGL, I've waited for this for over a decade. Hearing Lawerence Tanter call Laker games is iconic so him being in game is damn near a sell for me.
    I wonder if they'll ever be able to have local broadcast teams for franchise mode when you play non national games. It would be so dope to hear Stu Lantz or Walt Clyde Frazier while playing games.

    Agree but I'll take whatever I can get lol. It's a damn shame that EA has a license for arenas like MSG and TD Garden (as far as I know at least) and they're not even using them for an NBA game. That should be something that comes with the NBA license. Not having all the real arenas makes the game a little less authentic.

    Wonder what happens if you play with a classic team, will the PA announcer say their names or does it default back to the current PA guy that has has been in the game for years

    Classic are 100% in and it seems we might even get a boring way of announcing opposing teams.

    I'm a little curious about how much...variety could they possibly have. I mean, are they the full time PA announcer or do they come in occasionally? Because the generic one can say every single player's name. I doubt each announcer will do that.
    Kings Announcer has been answering questions about it on Twitter all day (@AnnouncerScott) and he says that all announcers did every name in multiple different ways, so when a player changes team, their name will be announced correctly.

    This isn't widely known outside of Chicago but Tommy Edwards is the guy who actually came up with the iconic "Sirius" starting lineup routine in Chicago. He was the voice of the Bulls until midway through the 1990 season when a more lucrative offer opened up at a station in Boston. The Bulls brought on Ray Clay to end the 1990 season and Edwards was low key kind of crushed to watch Clay basically adopt Tommy's entire routine verbatim.
    Most of us non-Chicagoans know it as Ray Clay's gig, and he did add an extra element with his voice and fervor, but Jordan & Co. probably would have still been running out to Thriller or the Miami Vice theme were it not for Tommy.
    Here's one of Tommy's last Jordan Bulls calls.

    Also, a history of the Bulls' starting lineup: https://www.theringer.com/nba/2018/11/13/18082986/oral-history-chicago-bulls-introduction-michael-jordan
    Like, I said that if they could also drastically improve crowd noise/sounds, that would go a long way. Crowd Noise was one area of presentation I felt was really lacking. With the hype of 3D Audio, there is definitely a several notches they could go from where it was. I just want it to feel like you are actually in a NBA stadium, not someone playing crowd noise over a tape recorder
    It is absolutely insane that they had every team's PA announcer record the name of every player in the NBA in multiple cadences. That's an absurd level of attention to detail.

    The weirdest thing to me is that 2K has crowd stuff in the game that I've never heard from an actual NBA crowd, like singing "If You're Happy And You Know It" down the stretch of a blowout and chanting "Threeeeeeeee!" on three-point attempts.

    I didn't play 2k20 or 2k21 CG, but it almost felt like they transferred CG Crowd Sounds to NG. Even at 100 with headset, it still feels so flat. I only been to a live game once couple years ago, and I can still remember that atmosphere.
    That and adding Arena music. They don't have to get licensed tracks(though they can use tracks from soundtrack), but adding those would add to the atmosphere
    I'd have to believe they wouldn't let Mason (Detroit) out of the booth without dropping a "B-B-B-Ben Wallace", "ChaunCEY B-B-Billups", and a "Rip Hahhhhhmilton".
    Things like custom P.A.'s are the types of small, seemingly insignificant details that end up reeling me in. Yes, gameplay always takes precedent, but innovation, customization, and authentication is a lot of fun, too. Half of the fun of playing The Show for the first time this year is just enjoying all the little things that make me say, "Wow, I can't believe they thought of that."

    So my question is does this break when you get deep into your MyNBA or MyLeague?
    If I have a rookie in 2025 on the Hornets named Bobby Bridges will "Bridges" be announced all cool like or nah?
    Love it.
    Can't say they didn't put in work for the offline crowd with this one. Really makes you want to check out all the possibilities..

    Just wanted to point out the crowd now has star players uniforms and throwbacks on instead of just blank jerseys. That had been something I wanted implemented since PS3/360 era when Live 10 had that and them wearing retro jerseys.

    This is huge. This is a day one buy for me since I'm a sucker for things like this. I'm mainly an association guy, so this would just make the experience that much cooler.
    Also, this means player intros are finally proper sounding as before, if the player wasn't a starter back in NBA 2K15 for that specific team, they'd be given that generic announcer with zero energy which was totally lame!!

    I'm quite curious how it works with expansion teams or relocation within MYGM/MYLeague/MYNBA. Obviously baby steps, but would be cool if they could hire some generic PA announcers that would be specific to relocation teams or expansion teams. This way, one PA announcer would be specific to say the Seattle Supersonics, or a PA announcer for a Baltimore expansion/relocation team, etc.
    Throwback jerseys and the team specific PA Announcers are what I consider "next gen". It may or may not be in the PS4 version but these are the type of additions that I appreciate. 2K did the authentic arena sounds a few years ago, and now we have the PAs and retro jerseys in the crowd. I just got the 3D pulse headset so it'll be dope to hear the difference between the arenas.

    Hopefully they ended that 5 minute banter between commentator and players where they forget that the game is going on

    Hopefully the commentary is getting similar love and attention that the PA announcers are receiving. I know commentators in real life will banter and discuss topics separate from the action on the court but sometimes in 2K it's like I'm listening to a podcast or sports radio segment rather than an actual broadcast.
    I get what you all are saying but the reality is, that's so prominent in today's television broadcasts.
    Video games used to be more like radio broadcasts detailing every action on the court, but that's not really an accurate portrayal of today's commentary.

    I definitely see myself toggling between "Nationally Televised" games with the commentary on and "In Arena Experience" with commentary off to get the full effect of the PA announcers. Def adds immersion to the game!

    I think part of the issue too is the actual sound quality. The commentary sounds like it was pre-recorded in a studio opposed to being part of an actual live broadcast. There has to be something they can do to make it sound more accurate to a tv broadcast. I feel like this is something the Live series typically handled a little bit better, along with crowd noise.

    True but it's a video game. It gets severely repetitive listening to the same banter for a year. I just turn it off cause it gets soooooo annoying.
    I especially hate when exciting plays are happening but they ignore it and keep yapping about the same stuff over and over and over. I rather have radio broadcast if its uninterrupted banter.

    Yeah we all have our preferences at the end of the day. The standard "Player X passes the ball, takes the shot etc. etc." doesn't do it for me personally. I also don't play a lot of seasons with regular teams, so maybe the repetitiveness doesn't hit me as hard
    but I definitely agree regarding 2K's audio mixing on certain things....can be much better.

    Wow !!!
    This is quite the addition by 2k in the presentation department. Hats off to them…
    Just when I think 2K has maxed out what they can do with the game, they take it up a notch again! 2K is the model all other sports game developers should follow. This is the blueprint on how to maximize a sports license. Very cool indeed!

    I agree
    I know it has been said that we are seeing diminishing returns with all these sports games and that most peaked. But, this is the type of additions that take it to the next level. With sports games, it's almost hard to stay innovative after you get to a certain point outside of adding new modes. That's when you stay adding these non-back of box features that add realism to the game. But improving overall sounds is the next thing they should focus on.
    I wouldn't expect team broadcasters, that would be a little too much. But more like you seen in the Sixers PA video where you add team specific pre-game traditions. Get live arena sounds like with Live 10 to get more team crowd chants. Stuff like that where you actually feel you are watching a TV broadcast or that you're actually in a game in a TV arena

    Would’ve been dope for Sir Foster to be in the game for the Hawks playing the organ.
    If you’ve watched Hawks games, you know who I’m talking about.
    That's too much sauce for the PS5 or Series X to handle....maybe next gen

    As a Kings fan our PA guy was answering questions on twitter. Says he did this for over a year and a half. Did names for every player in the league. So if you trade for someone they can get the same treatment. Also did names in several different ways.

    Really hoping legends are included. Hopefully they recorded every player in the game, not just the league.

    That should be the next thing 2k should do. Get some authentic arena organ sound!

    Will we get the home PA announcer even if you trade players or have a created player?

    The one PA guy said everyone recorded every name in multiple ways so it should work well in many scenarios.
    Damn, that is pretty neat, adds to the presentation. Now if they would give us a true halftime show showing a breakdown of plays and highlights from the first half of the game and highlights from around the league, and a end of game show - (NFL2K5) style, I would be in heaven.
    I hope 2k isn’t asking the announcers to alter or embellish their calls. I never remember Lawrence Tanner saying “Big Game” James Worthy. It was always just “Worthy”.
