Like every year, the excitement about the cover of NBA was on among the fans and to every one’s surprise, the producers named that prominent title this week.
The eminent name joining this league of lavish and elite trend is Kyrie Irving. He will be the cover for NBA 2k18 which is scheduled to release in this September 2017. The news came along with the result of the final match between Cleveland Cavaliers’ and Golden State Warriors. Though, Irving’s team lost the match to the opponents to realize them a 22 point lead, but the performance of Irving in particular did leave some charm on the producers and they named him for this coveted position.
The ex-sharers of this desirable popularity had been names like- Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and reigning two-time MVP Stephen Curry.
The reports came after an official tweet by the NBA team on June 1, “We’re excited to announce defending NBA world champion @KyrieIrving as cover athlete for NBA 2k18.”
Irving is succeeding Paul George, who was the cover athlete for NBA 2K17. Just last month it was announced that four-time NBA Champion and 2016 Hall of Fame entrant Shaquille O’Neal would grace the legend’s edition of NBA 2K18.
