Kyrie Irving Named Cover Star for NBA 2K18

Posted on June 26, 2017

2K has revealed that Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving will cover the next version of its NBA game, NBA 2K18. Kyrie had a couple unbelievable games in the NBA Finals against the Warriors but it wasn't enough for the Cavs to win. Kyrie also showed off some amazing moves.

Kyrie says in a statement, "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."

Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K, says, "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. He's a more-than-worthy recipient of this honor, and joins so many other greats who were cover athletes before him."

The game is set for a September 19, 2017 release. It will be available for multiple consoles including the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
