Just in time for a possible return to play for the NBA, 2k Sports, announced that Zion Williamson would be the cover athlete for NBA 2k21. There has been a lot of chatter about having the late Kobe Bryant grace the cover for this year’s installment, but not much has been said about the likelihood of that happening for a special edition of the game. The hope is there, because just yesterday 2k announced that Damian Lillard would be featured as a cover athlete as well.

Is it fair to ask, who’s next? Something like this has been seen before when EA featured multiple athletes on the cover of one game of their Madden series, and also when 2k featured several on the cover at once when they decided to bring back Michael Jordan.

Zion joins a list of NBA Superstars that have been cover athletes in the past. No doubt about it, Zion is a force on the court, so we’re excited to see how year two Zion performs in-game when NBA 2k21 drops this fall. https://twitter.com/i/events/1278359083981004800?s=20
