NBA 2K17 Cover Star Revealed
2K Sports has revealed Indiana Pacers forward Paul George, a three-time NBA all-star who also played for Team USA, will be on the cover of NBA 2K17. This announcement was made as part of the NBA 2K16 Road to the Finals competitive gaming event. A team called The Drewkerbockers ended up winning, splitting a $250,000 prize with the second place team, GFGeSports.
Last year's NBA 2K16 had three cover stars: Anthony Davis, Stephen Curry, and James Harden. George is making his debut as the cover star of a mainline NBA 2K game, but was previously on the digital cover of the NBA 2K companion app. George isn't the only cover athlete for NBA 2K17. 2K Sports is honoring NBA icon Kobe Bryant, who retired this year, with an $80 "Legend Edition."
