When LeBron was growing up in Akron, regularly playing NBA 2K with his friends, never did he ever imagine he’d one day be on its cover. Today, 2K revealed its special NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition cover – James second cover appearance – that features an artistic composition of words personally chosen by LeBron. Each phrase contains special meaning to James, including “Strive for Greatness,” “330,” and “I promise.”
“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a little kid,” said James. “We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me – from my family to where I come from and words I live by. I’m honored my journey can be part of this special time in 2K history and I’m excited for fans to see it.”
In addition to the exclusive LeBron James themed content and items, fans who purchase the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition will receive the game four days early, beginning on September 7, 2018.
