Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum have been busy traveling with Team USA for the FIBA World Cup, but it looks like they found time this summer to work on their acting chops.
Both Boston Celtics stars appeared and had lines in the new trailer for the upcoming "NBA 2K20" video game's MyCareer mode. For those out of touch with the video game world, MyCareer is a story mode that allows players to build their own characters and work their way up through the NBA ranks in what essentially is a half-movie, half-gameplay experience.
This year's edition, titled "When The Lights Are The Brightest," was produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter and features popular names such as Idris Elba and Rosario Dawson.
Watch the trailer below:

Along with the MyCareer trailer, Walker and Tatum also made appearances in the game's "Next Is Now" gameplay trailer earlier this month. Walker boasts an 88 overall rating in the game while Tatum has a rating of 85 he's none too pleased with.
Fans will be able to get their hands on "NBA 2K20" and try the impressive-looking MyCareer mode out for themselves on Sept. 6.
