GameSpot has posted their hands-on preview of NBA 2K8.
"One of the biggest new features this year is the Sprite slam-dunk contest. Dunk contests in video games have been around since Jordan vs. Bird, but this isn't any ordinary dunk contest--it takes place outdoors on a neon-lit court right smack in the middle of the Vegas strip. DJ Robert "Bobbito" Garcia acts as host and does the commentary for the contest. He roams the court praising the great dunks and chastising the bad ones. The contest starts off with Bobbito introducing the participants, each of whom has their own customized introduction. You might see a player flex and kiss his biceps or just turn and play to the crowd."
