Mad Ants have role in video game

A trailer for the upcoming “NBA 2K19” video game reveals the Mad Ants, Fort Wayne's team in the G League, will be featured prominently in the My Career story mode called “The Way Back.”

The two-plus minute trailer details the journey of a player from China coming to the Mad Ants as he follows his dream of making it to the NBA. The Mad Ants are owned and operated by the Indiana Pacers.

The Mad Ants' name, logo and jersey are shown prominently. And some scenes from the locker room and court don't look too far off from Memorial Coliseum.

The game releases Sept. 11. The trailer is at twitter.com/NBA2K/statuses/1031922779317125120.
