The teasers weren't lying. Good choice, and nice artwork.

Seems we have a glimpse of the game, too:

Wow, NBA Live 16 might actually beat NBA 2K16 graphics-wise this year!
Very exciting!

Emotion, I hope they really express this in Live 16. That crossover looked much better than the one in 15

I'm definitely excited that Russ is going to be on the cover this year! It's much deserved, and I think he'll do a good job promoting it. The fact EA Sports came out with the info before E3 definitely gives me more confidence than I've had the last couple years. They seem to be proud of it already, and I hope it's a great game. I'm ready to see more info in the near future.

Wish they would've done a shot of him doing his gun holstering celebration for the cover, but that probably would've caused some controversy

Yeah I think it's ok to have it in the game but it's a grey area to have it in there promotion video.

It's good that we are getting info like this early, nba live had such a huge cult following which many have moved over to 2k. EA has long way to go to win them back but I must admit I am looking forward to nba live 16 more than 2k this year.

I'm not really sure about that weak as dunk animation, the game play still looks meh, but he haven't seen anything. As for the graphics, 2K learn how to make russ

Jerseys are still loose.
Player models same as last year, which means no body scans & same stick legs as years past.
Graphics have been tweaked somewhat, but still that same faded look as last year.
And most importantly, the animations seem pretty similar to last year, I suspect (& fear) there won't be a large difference from 15 in terms of animation quality, unfortunately.

That's quite a large leap of presumptions off of three seconds of non-gameplay video, unless I missed something...

You can tell they're still using the same animation system as past years just by seeing a few, (especially the crossover), only more polished.

EA, if you want my sales, you have to sooner/later feature a Milwaukee Bucks Player on the cover.

Greece may have the Greek kid on the cover next year but the Bucks just don't have a big enough of a global star to market on right now.
