The official trailer for NBA 2K19 ("Take the Crown") has finally dropped, and the gameplay video set in Jay Rock's "Win" looks stunning.
The sick footage featured strange sights, such as DeMar Derozan as a Spur and Kawhi Leonard as a Raptor, DeMarcus Cousins in Golden State, and the new look Los Angeles Lakers, led by NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition edition cover athlete LeBron James. At least Giannis Antetokounmpo, the poster boy for this stand-alone game, is rocking a Milwaukee Bucks uniform (for now).
Aside from unveiling the trailer, social media manager Ronnie Singh, aka Ronnie 2K, also caught up with some NBA stars to personally let them know about their latest NBA 2K19 ratings. It's safe to say not every player agrees with his assessments.
Josh Hart (Los Angeles Lakers) - 76
The reigning Summer League MVP will have a bigger chip on his shoulder.
Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons) - 87
His team record (39-43, ninth in the East) held back Dre's drastic improvement.
Ben Simmons (Philadelphia 76ers) - 87
It's scary to think that he's already this good even without a jumper.
LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers) - 98
Two notches lower than perfect for a 33-year-old? Not bad for The "King of LA."
Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves) - 91
This should've been higher if he showed up in the playoffs against Houston.
DeMarcus Cousins (Golden State Warriors) - 90
Coming off a injury, Boogie will have a lot to prove once he suits up.
Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz) - 87
Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics) - 87
Did his poster dunk on none other than LeBron count during deliberation?
Kyle Kuzma (Los Angeles Lakers) - 78 (?)
No more "Kuz Control" for the NBA All-Rookie First Team member.
