More details are dropping about the features of the upcoming NBA 2K18. 

In addition to current stars such as Lonzo Ball and Joel Embiid, the game will feature appearances from legends Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant

Both players graced the game during their careers. But this time, they'll be on the sidelines rather than the court.

Steve Noah of Operation Sports reported the two NBA All-Stars will rotate as guest hosts in the game's broadcast booth:

The game is set for release Sept. 19.

UPDATE: Monday, August 28 at 3:25 p.m. ET

NBA 2K18 unveiled a sneak peak of Bryant and Garnett on commentary.



During the trailer, Garnett discussed the challenges of guarding Shaquille O'Neal. Bryant gushed over Kyrie Irving, noticeably featured as a member of the Boston Celtics.

Let's hope that insight was only a small glimpse of analysis the two recorded.
