Irving, is one today’s most recognizable NBA superstars and with his brilliant performance in last year’s NBA finals, helped the Cavaliers win their first championship. Irving’s current hardware includes four all-star selections, an Olympic gold medal and a FIBA World Cup championship.
Prior to being in this year’s cover, Irving was also been chosen as the cover for EA’s NBA Live franchise back in 2014. Irving becomes the first Cavalier to rock the uniform in an NBA 2K cover with teammate LeBron James starring in 2K13 as a member of the Miami HEAT.
NBA 2K18 is due for a September release date — one month prior to the start of the pre-season games.
The legend edition in both standard and gold formats stars Shaquille O’Neal in the cover.
Since 1984, every champion in the NBA has had a player who has been a teammate of @SHAQ!
