NBA 2K20 Cover Athlete Announced

The latest installment of the NBA 2K franchise has fans excited for its release as NBA 2K20’s cover athlete was announced this week. On July 1st, the NBA 2K20 Twitter account announced Anthony Davis as their cover athlete with the tweet, “Welcome to the Next”.

Following the same release style since NBA 2K17, there will be three editions of the game that fans can choose from:

  • “Standard” edition ($59.99 USD)

The “Legend” edition of NBA 2K20 also features a special cover athlete of a legendary NBA player. In the past, we have seen players such as Michael Jordan (NBA 2K16), Kobe Bryant (NBA 2K17), and Shaquille O’Neal (NBA 2K18). NBA 2K19 did not have a legend edition. Instead, LeBron James was the “20th Anniversary” edition cover athlete for that edition of the game. For this year’s game, the legendary player chosen was Dwyane Wade, who retired this past season after a 17-year career.

Some fans were upset at NBA 2K for choosing Anthony Davis to be the cover athlete for the two editions of NBA 2K20 because he was already a cover athlete for NBA 2K16.

Many thought that the cover athlete should have been Kawhi Leonard, who won the NBA Championship last season with the Toronto Raptors.

NBA 2K20 is set to release on September 6th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
