NBA 2K21’s release is right around the corner with Damian Lillard as the cover athlete for current gen systems like Xbox One and PS4. Next gen systems like PS5 and Xbox Series X will have the no. 1 pick Zion Williamson as their cover athlete.
The unveiling of cover athletes doesn’t just stop at Dame and Zion, however, because the creators of the game have just announced a special NBA 2K21: Mamba Forever Edition game featuring none other than Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant.
Kobe Bryant will also be the cover athlete for next gen versions of 2K21. Fans have petitioned vehemently to have Kobe Bryant as the next athlete to be featured on the cover ever since his untimely death with some fans even creating their own version of the 2K21 cover.
Will never forget the first time we ever met in 2010. Your passion. RIP legend, we will do our best to celebrate your immeasurable legacy.Ronnie Singh aka Ronnie 2K, NBA 2K digital marketing director
