Video game fans got their first look at “NBA 2K18” on Wednesday. The trailer for the newest installment of the popular video game series was dotted with some Sacramento flavor.

On Thursday, Kings fans who will play the game were given a little more reason to be excited.

This version, scheduled to be released Sept. 15 on multiple platforms, is adding 16 new classic teams, and one of those squads is the 2001-02 Kings team. Adding to that, Chris Webber will be on the roster.

This Kings squad was last featured on “NBA 2K13” but Webber was not included. Instead, the game had Scot Pollard as the starting power forward, joining Mike Bibby, Doug Christie, Peja Stojakovic and Vlade Divac.

Former L.A. Laker Robert Horry's miraculous, buzzer-beating shot in 2002 NBA Western Conference Finals still haunts players from the Sacramento Kings.
