The NBA 2K series is a series of basketball video games developed and released annually. Beginning in 1999 to 2001, the NBA 2K series was an exclusive to the Sega Dreamcast. The series was originally published by Sega, under the label Sega Sports and is now published by 2K Sports. All of the games in the franchise have been developed by Visual Concepts. Its primary competitor in the marketplace is the NBA Live series from EA Sports. The first four games of the series featured commentary from fictional announcers 'Bob Steele' and 'Rod West' (voiced by Bay Area sports radio personalities Bob Fitzgerald and Rod Brooks who works at KNBR 680 San Francisco. They also host a radio show called 'Fitz and Brooks'), but since NBA 2K3 the game's announcing team has been something of a revolving door, featuring commentary from the likes of Bill Walton, Tom Tolbert, Kevin Frazier, Michele Tafoya, and Bob Fitzgerald.
