Boston Celtics fans have to wait a bit longer before seeing the real Kyrie Irving at TD Garden, but “NBA 2K 18” is providing a worthy substitute.
The game, which launched Friday with a cover featuring Irving in a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform, eventually will be re-released with the star guard wearing green and white on the front. And to celebrate the release of the game, “NBA 2K’s” twitter dropped a new trailer, dubbed the Momentous Trailer, and Irving is featured prominently.
Watch it in the video below:
As far as video game trailers go, that one was pretty awesome.
You might’ve noticed “Uncle Drew” wearing a black and green C’s uniform. The alternate gear actually is called a “Statement Jersey,” which is a uniform variant that each NBA team will feature at various points in the 2017-18 season.
“NBA 2K18” now is available on most major gaming platforms, including Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and, yes, the Nintendo Switch.
