Another NBA season is approaching, which means the new installment of 2K Sports' insanely popular franchise, NBA 2K13, is upon us — October 2nd to be exact.

And as usual, 2K Sports has released the first official trailer for NBA 2K13.

Last year, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Michael Jordan grazed the cover and the ability to play as some of the NBA's best teams in history were the highlights of NBA 2K12.

This time around, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, and Derrick Rose are the cover boys and the 1992 Dream Team is the featured new addition to the playable teams. (Hmmm...maybe that debate on whether or not the 2012 Olympic Men's Basketball Team can beat the original Dream Team can now be settled.)

If that's not enough. 2K Sports brought in recording artist heavyweight Jay-Z to put his spin on the music.

But for the Laker fans, probably the best feature of this video game is the new-look Lakers team. Come October 2nd, you no longer have to wonder how a pick-and-roll between Steve Nash and Dwight Howard would look or how Kobe Bryant draws the attention of the defense in the high-post but only to give the cutting Pau Gasol an over-the-shoulder pass for an easy dunk.

And yes, Jodie Meeks and Antawn Jamison have been added to the Laker bench.
