The front men for the next 2K basketball game will be revealed this week, but who will it be?
It’s time to count down for our next cover athlete.
The first NBA 2K21 Cover Star unveiled
2K revealed the first cover athlete – Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers!
We expected the trio of cover athletes to be on each different edition of the game, but 2K took a different path.
Lillard will be the cover athlete for the current platform. So come the day of the release if you buy a NBA 2K21 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia or PC, you will have Lillard’s dunk skywalking on the cover.
There will be a star in next-generation coverage for PS5 and Xbox Series X when these consoles finally arrive.
New generation star unveils date
The next generation star will be announced at 10am ET / 3pm BST tomorrow, 1st of July.

The big question is who will it be? And where will the third cover athlete appear?
NBA 2K21 Cover Star Predictions
Zion Williamson was at the center of the game earlier this month.
As it was at a PS5 event, we expect Zion to be the next generation star.
The third cover athlete will likely be on the Legends Edition.
There is really only one choice for the Legends, the recently disappeared and much missed Kobe Bryant.
The promised release date promised
NBA 2K21 will finally announce its release date, price and will open pre-orders on July 2nd. Our current release date window is fall 2020, but details will clarify that soon.
