LeBron James has never appeared on a video game cover and this year would be a great time for him to finally get it done. But instead, the NBA 2K series has decided to go with Blake Griffin, Ken Durant and Derrick Rose for their newest cover. (The game is set to come out in November.)
These three aren’t bad choices but why not include the most talked about player in the league? He’s the defending MVP, Finals MVP and is a champion now.
Maybe James didn’t want to be on the cover. But if there was a chance to put the most talked about star of the league on the cover, this had to be the year. It’s a missed opportunity I think.
