The hands-down best studio team for NBA games is the TNT team comprised of Ernie Johnson, Shaq, Charles Barkley, and Kenny “The Jet” Smith. The NBA 2K series has been using the station’s in-game commentary team, so the next obvious step is to incorporate the studio team into NBA 2K15.
NBA 2K14, especially the new-gen console versions, has been a bit lacking in the between game presentation department and it’s good to see 2K addressing the issue with the ever-patient EJ and Shaq Diesel aka “The Big Aristotle”. I dare you to watch through the whole trailer and not laugh at their amazing chemistry. Hopefully, 2K recorded as much audio as they did for their in-game color team.
NBA 2K15 releases on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 7th.
