ESPN’s First Take Heads to NBA Live 18

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.

NBA Live will release later this year, but if you can’t wait, check out the demo for PS4 and Xbox One on August 11. Also check out the latest trailer below of NBA Live 18 announcing their newest cover athlete, James Harden.
