The Los Angeles Lakers are turning over a new leaf heading into the 2014-15 NBA season with many new faces on the roster and on the sidelines. Kobe Bryant and company will attempt to defy the odds with seemingly everyone counting this team out after the worst season in franchise history.
Fortunately, despite the consensus being that the Lakers are headed for another disappointing year, Kobe and newcomers, Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer, are featured in the first trailer for arguably one of the most popular sports video games every year.
In this NBA 2K15 trailer, Kobe faces off against Derrick Rose while Boozer goes head-to-head against Pau Gasol in the paint. Lin is seen being introduced before game time at the Staples Center.
Lin and Boozer are the two most substantial additions to the Lakers roster this year and will be looking to secure their long-term future in purple and gold with a solid season. Both players will likely be starters with Lin running the point guard alongside Kobe in the backcourt and Boozer replacing Gasol in the frontcourt.
Reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder will be on the cover of NBA 2K15.
