‘NBA 2K16’ Promo Features Paul Pierce, LeBron James; Is Awesome (Video)

There’s a lot of buzz heading into the 2015-16 NBA season, and that excitement extends to the virtual world as well.

The new “NBA 2K” video game is set to release Sept. 29 for five consoles, including PC. The game’s publisher, 2K Sports, released a new “NBA 2K16” promo video Tuesday titled “#WINNING.”

There are a lot of scenes featuring superstars such as Anthony Davis, James Harden, Steph Curry and LeBron James, but the Boston Celtics also make a few appearances.

The “NBA 2K” franchise has been the best basketball video game for several years, and it’s quite popular with the players, too. Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas recently found out he’s rated an 81 out of 100 in the upcoming game, and it appears he felt that was a little low.

If Thomas continues to score off the bench and play a valuable role for the Celtics, you can bet his rating will increase in one of the many in-season roster updates.
