Video: NBA 2K11 Official Trailer

by Lang Whitaker | @langwhitaker

After the post I did the other day about the chance I had to play 2K11, 2K Sports sent out a link to the official trailer for the game. Yesterday we started watching the trailer here in the office and enjoyed it so much, we figured it was worth a spot in SLAM TV. Enjoy…

    This Trailer hypes me up to get this over Live….despite their name and control change……Live or Elite just let me down past couple of years

    I was hyped before this, but the new trailer is nice. Nice Snoop track too but honestly, the best theme track for the 2k series was 2k2 with Jermaine Dupree and that dude who sounded like Jay-Z – I think his name was R.O.C. ?

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    I’m saddened that AI won’t be in this game, which means he didn’t make the trailer.

  • Jerz

    2K Pennies was the best theme track….come on dude. and yeah, it was last year (so what?), but the soundtrack is always diverse. Which song did u find yourself singing to last year…..or how bout whistling? LOL

    S/o to the Cool Kids….

  • http://stapledesign.com Spaceship Jay

    @M Cho; Hahaha I remember that! Yeah that dude sounded JUST LIKE JayZ. Meh.

  • JTaylor21

    Kap is right. They got keep on teasing us with all these previews. The only games are I need are 2k11 and COD Black Ops and I’m set for another 12 months.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Cosign Jerz. I wasn’t blown away by the Cool Kids lyrical abilities, but that song was catchy as hell. And I already put in to have October 6th off at work cause I KNOW I’ma be up all night on the 5th playing this 2K11!

  • http://www.michaelcho.com M Cho

    ^^^ you mean you’ll be up all night downloading patches to the game. LOL. 2k10 was buggy as hell when it came out.

  • BK Chris

    The John Wall dance is Just Icing on the cake! Looks like 2k is trying to shut down live for good!

  • http://www.slamonline.com jumpman3224

    This looks amazing. Jordan, Nique, Kemp. That is a video game dream come true.

  • JD

    I love the whole retro thing they got going on with all the old players cant wait for the game!

  • teebee!!

    screw jordan!!! im only getting this so i can be the sonics and have some payton to kemp lob sessions on them heads!!! oooh…i hope they throw in the vintage sonics jerseys!!! im from seattle so imagine how hyped i’d be to play a sonics game in seattle…even if we dont have a team…smh.

    iv grown to like the 2k series much more than the live or elite series.. the stats in the live system are so screwed up.. the scoring for all the players is either way to high or way to low and the rest of the stats are ridiculously low and completely unrealistic.. tho on the 2k series the rebounding mumbers are always super high.. but the stats on the 2k series (through simulation of course) is always better than that of the live series.. live really disappoints me.. cant wait for 2k11 to get out tho i will never buy live again idc how good the graphics are

  • http://yahoo.com kevin armenta

    Patrick Ewing!?! WHAT!!!

  • Wendallt

    EA needs to just stop trying after this one…. 2K Shuttin things down!!

  • underdog

    The Reignman!! Gotta cop this.

  • Lenny

    That little tatted up ball hogging thug Iverson is finally not in this game, about time. Love how the league destroyed him, he deserved everything he got.

  • http://www.nba.com L

    Patrick Ewing. . . The Sonics. . . G.O.A.T. . . and the old arenas they used to play in. I want this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • nastierthanu4

    No wonder kids don’t go outside anymore

  • Blackphantom

    This will be the greatest basketball game of all time, no doubt, all the freakin’ legends just win me over in this one. From Nique to Ewing to Kemp to Worthy to the greatest of all-time. This’ll be beast

  • ab_40

    yeah those features were already on nba live 2000? so I don’t get teh whole basketball revolution thing. I don’t play video games because they’re a waiste of time

  • Blackphantom

    @ab_40 yeah sure some of them were but still, NBA Live 2000 had bad graphics like almost every game back then, and they didn’t have classic NBA teams(i.e. 94-95 Bulls)

  • Drew

    I can’t wait to play as the Sonics. Oh and don’t get me started on Jordan Vs. Bryant.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jay

    @Lenny: Straight up ur a hater……. is AI really not in the game?? That sucks, I think they should put the 2001 Sixers squad in this too.

  • wcballer

    Yeah AI should be in this since he was such a big part of 2K…. hes probably still a free agent in there so I guess you can sign him to a team or something.

  • Smoove


  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Watching this gave me a basketball geekgasm. Oh my gosh.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    Impressed…. I could already pick out some AI glitches though…did you see how close the defense was standing at the 31-32 sec marks? In every other video game that perimeter passing is getting picked off…. Nashs assists are going to look HECTIC this year (oh and does this realism mean John Stockton will only dribble right handed??)
    …trust my boy Robin Lopez to get rejected in a highlight trailer… : )

  • Scottie Pimpin

    looks like it might be better than 2k9. whoa!

  • http://slam Kid Canada

    Why do I have to wait!

  • KB

    i hope they keep addin classic teams after this year.
    i got request for the 01 sixers, 04 pistons, and 99 spurs

  • Jacob (from Australia)

    Took me about 8 seconds to realise I had watched LeBron do something, damn Heat jersey.
    Screw MJ, I just wanna beast with Shawn Kemp!
    Also, the blocks look sick.

    I just hope the players and jerseys are updated.. especially those cavs jerseys, those unis are very nice.

  • http://sfjdkldsfl.com Jukai

    Still upset my 92 Suns aren’t in the game, but outside of that, I MUST COP THIS. I was upset with the lack of moves in the last 2K game, so now I’m super hyped about this.

  • Chou

    Beno crossing Terry Porter at 1:07! Haha! Almost everyone’s wearing default kicks? Oh well, it’s just a trailer. Geekgasmic.

  • http://www.lkz.ce Darksaber

    Oh Boy. My loyalty to NBA Live has now developed a crack in it’s armor. This looks sensational.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Love that they’ve already got the John Wall ‘fist pump’ in there haha.
    Wade’s 2 handed jam looks sooo realistic.
    Kemp should just be able to dunk on anyone whenever he wants.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I can’t wait to play as the ’90s Knicks and completely destroy Jordan and the Bulls.

  • http://facebook.com justine bacnis

    EA should just stop….

  • larrylegend

    nique is in the trailer, in the backround u see the hawks bench…so maybe classic hawks team in the game and some other non-mj related teams….i keep dreaming…

  • http://anf.blogspot.com anf

    My oh my goosebumps all the way

  • http://slamonline.com Matt Lawyue

    I love how every blocked shot gets thrown half-way down the court…

  • http://www.slamonline.com J

    Don’t even think for one minute that im not going to play MJ and the Bulls and destroy everyone.. and i mean everyone!

  • Nova

    “2K11 Best game ever made”

    And John Wall looked madd high

  • http://slamonline.com Krishan

    God I hate that john wall dance so much

  • chingy

    Young Shaq better be in this (along with Penny). Shaq’s Magic vs current Magic!

  • Yesse

    Cold chills. At the middle of the video i was like “if i only got to see MJ’s signature dunk” and then it came too. Snoop Dogg in the soundtrack. Graphics look like 2K10, but better FPS apparently.

  • kg

    i watched this 8 diffrent times on 8 diffrent websites lol i just pray a few pair of foamsposites and penny hardaway are in the game but this is only a “work-in-progress” video

  • Ike Diamonds

    Payton to Kemp all day!

    not crazy about the music….something more old-school would have bee nice…something from the late 80s/early 90s in celebration of MJ
