Video: NBA 2K13 trailer featuring the Dream Team vs. the 2012 Team USA

2KSports has released its newest video in anticipation of the October 2nd release of NBA 2K13. And this time, they're going to (not) answer that question that everyone has been so determined to discuss over the past four months: Could the 2012 Team USA beat the Dream Team?

  6. Needs more Chuck Daly.
