This New Orleans Pelican rookie’s dream just came true.
After his first season in the NBA, Zion Williamson is named the second NBA2K21 cover athlete.
He joins Damian Lilliard in this year’s cover class. The third athlete cover is rumored to be the late Kobe Bryant, however it has yet to be officially announced.
Williamson will be the cover athlete for the next generation systems PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Williamson shares in a video interview what exactly this cover means to him. He says, “At those AAU tournaments you’re looking at the cover thinking, ‘that’s gonna be me’. For it to happen that fast, that’s a huge honor.”
He joins former fellow Pelican players Chris Paul and Anthony Davis who graced the game cover for 2K8 and 2K16.
