It should be noted that trailers for new systems don’t always align with how games will actually look — think of it as a best-case scenario appearance — but nonetheless drum up interest of what’s to come.
Social media, which houses a rich cast of “NBA 2K” fans, offered a wide range of reactions to the trailer centered on sweat jokes.
