LeBron James is Cover Athlete for NBA 2K14

Posted June 6th, 2013 at 5:50 pm


2K Sports has announced that reigning MVP LeBron James will be the cover athlete for NBA 2K14. The news likely would have been pushed back had the Pacers knocked the Heat out of the playoffs but instead 2K can now celebrate nabbing the best player in the league – maybe necessary to avoid a promotional letdown after the exceptional representation they secured for the last three NBA 2K covers.

NBA 2K14 is confirmed for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC and then later coming to the Xbox One and PS4 when those new consoles launch. No word on whether it will release for Vita but it will not be coming to Wii U. 2K also stated there will be news coming out of E3 and given that the company will not be in attendance that lends credence to the idea the game will show up at the Sony press conference on Monday possibly with the first reveal of the next-gen version.
