NBA 2K to feature three cover athletes; reveal coming next week

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis has revealed that three new cover athletes for NBA 2K21 will be announced over a three-day period next week.

In a TikTok video posted by NBA 2K, Davis, the cover athlete for NBA 2K20, teased that three cover athletes for the upcoming yearly release will be announced daily on June 30, July 1 and July 2. More NBA 2K21 information will be released throughout the week, Davis said.

Game developer 2K will take a new social media approach for its reveals and content surrounding the series. The game’s TikTok channel will “become the go-to hub for fans around the globe to check out the latest information on NBA 2K21 and exclusive behind-the-scenes content leading up to cover reveals,” the company said in a statement.

Davis was the main NBA 2K20 poster player, while former Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade appeared on the Legend Edition. Davis was also a cover athlete for NBA 2K16, along with Stephen Curry and James Harden.

Davis is one of several athletes with multiple 2K franchise cover appearances. That list includes Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Kevin Durant and LeBron James. The record for most cover appearances is five, held by Allen Iverson, who made consecutive appearances from NBA 2K (released in 1999) through ESPN NBA Basketball 2K4 (released in 2003).
