We’ve already known that Shaquille O’Neal’s bag on the cover of the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition that comes in the fall is big today, but the 2K release today also revealed that the basic cost was won by Cleveland Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving.
Irving will for the first time thrive on the front page of an episode of a basketball simulator, so he is not only happy to get into the NBA Finals this year, where he will face the Golden State Warriors team. The known player of the “Ankletaker” was very proud to be the face of the NBA 2K series this year. “It is well known that I’m an avid player of this series and I am honored to be the cover athlete of NBA 2K18. It’s surreal to be featured on the cover and I can’t wait to dominate on the virtual court with all of my fans this fall, “said Kyrie Irving, who had previously won the Rookie of the Year winner and was nominated for the most valuable player in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game.
“It’s obvious that Kyrie isn’t disappearing from the spotlight anytime soon, so we’re thrilled to have him as our cover athlete, alongside Shaq for the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition,” said Alfie Brody, vice president of NBA 2K Marketing. “He’s a more-than-worthy recipient of this honor, and joins so many other greats who were cover athletes before him.”
The Standard Edition Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC features Kyrie Irving features the following gaming content:
- 5000 Virtual Currency
- 10 MyTEAM packs
- Kyrie Outfit Pack
The NBA 2K18 Standard Edition will feature PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, while the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch platforms from September 15th.
