Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past several months you’ve likely heard that LeBron James has left the Cleveland Cavaliers and joined the Los Angeles Lakers.
The newest gameplay trailer for NBA 2K19 showcases a number of things but the thing that will stand out to many is LeBron wearing a Lakers jersey. Like many of these trailers, the players are seen pulling off nice shots and performing powerful dunks. Luckily for you, that is the same here.
The new-look Lakers are heavily featured in the trailer but we also get to look at the Celtics, Warriors, Rockets and even the Bucks. Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is the cover athlete for the standard edition of the game while LeBron James is the cover star for Anniversary Edition.
There’s also another bonus for Xbox owners that was announced with this trailer. There will be Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles available for NBA 2K19 for $299.99 and $499.99 respectively. Here’s what to expect with each bundle:
