After coming off arguably the best season of his career, Lebron James is the newest cover athlete of the widely popular video game, NBA 2K19.
NBA 2k is celebrating their 20th anniversary with their next release. This isn’t James’ first time as the cover athlete though. He was previously on the cover of NBA 2K14 sporting a Miami Heat jersey.
“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a kid,” James said to Bleacher Report. “We were able to do something unique for the cover that represents everything that drives and inspires me…”
After receiving mixed reviews with 2K18, 2K Sports are now trying to rebrand the video game with new features that are included in the Special Edition version of the game. Some of these features include 100,000 virtual currency, 50,000 MyTEAM points, and 20 MyTEAM league packs. This includes the highest rated sapphire Lebron James card, signature Lebron sneakers for your MyPlayer and much more. This will set gamers back $100.
If you preorder, you will also receive a Lebron James poster, sticker sheet, and wristband.
