It’s time to embrace debate! If adding the WNBA to NBA Live 18 wasn’t enough, then how about ESPN’s hit show First Take? That’s right: Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman will be featured in this year’s NBA Live 18.
Unlike its rival 2K18, NBA Live will take a different approach. The team over at 2K Sports has scanned the TNT crew in the game, but NBA Live decided to actually record the crew in-studio. This will be featured in the Career Mode segments. No word yet on if this will also appear during pre-games on Play Now or not. Regardless, this is big. Like we always say, competition is a good thing, and NBA Live is taking it to the next level.
Check out the clips below of the First Take Crew in action.
