Last night during Game 1 of the NBA Finals, 2K Sports announced that the cover athlete of their award winning basketball franchise would be none other than the “Black Mamba” himself, Kobe Bryant. But that’s only the beginning, because 2K Sports is giving the YOU the chance to pick which cover pic of Bryant becomes the actual game cover.
Calm down LA fans and don’t get excited NY fans, its just a mockup it WON’T be the cover.
“I’ve been playing sports video games for as long as I can remember and honestly, I’ve never seen one come so close to replicating real basketball. What 2K Sports has done is truly incredible and I’m proud to be a partner with them and on the cover of NBA 2K10,” said Bryant.
There are “four” possible shots for the cover, we have four in quotes because one is just for kicks or should we say Knicks. That’s right there is a shot of Kobe wearing the number 17 in a Knicks uniform but relax the guys at 2K clearly said it was just for fun and even though you can vote for it, it’s not going to be the cover. There is still no release date for NBA 2K10 but we will surmise that it is sometime in the August-September time frame. Till then you can always check out our review of last year’s NBA 2K9. The three real covers to pick from are below, check them out and then go and vote for the one you like best.
Can you guess which one we like lol?
In any case, the actual cover shot is up to you and to vote for your favorite cover shot all you have to do is go here. The box cover that receives the most votes at the end of the voting period (June 15th) will be unveiled as the cover of NBA 2K10 on June 16th. Don’t miss your chance to vote for which cover you want, we didn’t.
