Bill Simmons Joins the Broadcast Team in NBA 2K19

In my humble opinion, the greatest sportscaster is Kevin Harlan.  All due respect to the talents of Al Michaels, Joe Buck, Jim Nance, and other incredible voices, but Harlan’s unique voice and knack for telling fascinating stories makes him my all-time favorite sports personality.  That’s one of the many reasons why NBA  2K19 is such a treat to play.  Getting to listen to him and future NBA Hall of Famers Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett while we ball out adds to the gameplay experience in a way that other Sports Games can’t.  

Now, 2K Sports is bringing in a man that every avid NBA fan should know, The Ringer‘s own Bill Simmons.  Listen to his random anecdotes in the Broadcast Trailer for NBA 2K19!

Bill Simmons is an interesting talent to bring in to NBA 2K19.  He has such a massive passion for Basketball and the players know it and love him for it.  That type of pull is what makes Simmons a fascinating addition.  You can already see in the trailer that he’ll bring buzz-worthy stories and personal experiences to NBA 2K19.  Admittedly, with most sports games I turn off the commentary because I play so much the script gets monotonous.  However, with NBA 2K, I still haven’t done that because I enjoy listening to the musings of these NBA giants.  With the addition of Bill Simmons, it just adds another layer of commentary, meaning I may never turn it off.

The NBA 2K19 Standard Edition will be available on September 11, 2018. The 20th Anniversary Edition will be available on September 7, 2018. Pre-orders for both editions are available now.
