Mason introduces himself on NBA 2k22 while explaining how much he loves to introduce Damian Lillard at the end of the starting lineups. He also really enjoys when Jusuf Nurkic has a big dunk and he can speak in Bosnian, which Nurk has taught him a little bit of over the years.

Mason also has some great advice for anyone aspiring to be a PA announcer.

I don’t try and top the crowd. I just try and stay a little bit underneath them and let them do the work.

— Mark Mason on NBA 2k22

Mason, who is a long-time Portland radio show host, has been the Blazer public address announcer since the 1996-97 season.

“Portland Trail Blazers fans are loyal, enthusiastic, knowledgeable – they know the game,” Mason added.

We can’t wait for NBA 2k22 to be released on Sept. 10.

Rip City is ready, Mark Mason!
