NBA 2K Reveals Cover Athletes For NBA 2K21

NBA 2K has finally revealed the first two cover athletes for NBA 2K21 and its none other than the Portland Trailblazers Point Guard, Damian Lillard and New Orleans Pelicans Forward, Zion Williamson.

2K revealed Damian Lillard will be the Current Gen cover athlete for 2K21 on current gen. Having more than one cover is nothing new for NBA 2K, in past games they’ve always had the regular edition cover and then have a legend edition with a different cover. You can check the Instagram post featuring the current gen cover below:

NBA 2K also released a quick teaser trailer revealing Lillard as the cover athlete. An official pre-order date of July 2nd was also revealed. I couldn’t think of more deserving player than Damian Lillard to be featured as a cover athlete. At first look, the cover looks nice and, in my opinion, an improvement over last years regular edition cover that featured Anthony Davis.

UPDATE – July 1st, 2020:

2K announced today in an Instagram post that Zion Williamson will be featured as the Next Gen cover athlete for NBA 2K21. You can check out the Instagram post below:
