Along with real-time physics and a right stick focused control scheme NBA Elite 11 will be getting an all-new announce team. Gone are Marv Albert and Steve Kerr. In are ABC/ESPN’s Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. An AP story about the team today revealed that the trio will be taking over announce duties in NBA Elite 11.

Needless to say with the rebranding of the NBA Live series EA Sports is attempting to refresh the brand in more than just name. The commentary was considered to be a strength for a few years but it had gotten increasingly stale so this change was definitely called for. What do you think of the new announce team for the game? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    EA really did a poor job of capturing Marv Albert's excitement. He was so plain in Live.
