The Portland Trailblazer star is the first of three athletes to grace the cover of NBA2K21. Los Angeles Laker Anthony Davis revealed in a TikTok video last week by NBA2K that there will be three covers for next year’s game.
Lilliard is the first cover athlete for the Trail Blazers. He said in a statement, “This is a special moment for me in my NBA career. I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K for years and love how they represent all aspects of basketball culture. I’m an avid 2K player so I’m honored to join other NBA greats who have been on the cover. I’m grateful to all my fans and can’t wait for everyone to experience the game next year.”
NBA 2K21 is available for preorder July 2nd and will be released October 2020. The remaining two covers are expected to debut within the next few days.
