LeBron James, who is currently competing in his eighth straight NBA Finals, has been chosen to cover NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition. Alongside a photo of James, which conveniently shows no jersey due to his impending free agency, is an artistic compilation of words chosen by LeBron himself, each holding a special meaning to the three-time NBA Champion.
“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a little kid,” says James. “We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me – from my family to where I come from and words I live by. I’m honored my journey can be part of this special time in 2K history and I’m excited for fans to see it.”
NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition will feature exclusive LBJ-themed content, including Nike LeBron apparel and sneakers, while physical items accompanying the game consist of a LeBron NBA 2K19 poster, NBA 2K sticker sheet, and custom wristband featuring James’ chosen words. These gifts will not be included with digital purchase, however.
You can look forward to NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC September 7.
