NBA 2K18 Will Get A Weird Cover This Year As The Cover Star Wants To Be Traded

NBA 2K18 Will Get A Weird Cover This Year As The Cover Star Wants To Be Traded

Posted time: Jul 24,2017


In early June, the Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving was announced as the NBA 2K18's cover star. The NBA finals were taking place, the Cavaliers were competing for the championship, and Irving was regarded as one of the cornerstones of the team. Now, however, it appears that Irving's time in Cleveland is likely to be waning: ESPN is reporting that Irving has asked to be traded.

According to ESPN sources, Irving has expressed dissatisfaction playing with the NBA's biggest celebrity, LeBron James. He wants to get more focus, and he is looking for a team where he can become the biggest star. He has reportedly expressed interest in the San Antonio Spurs, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks, and Miami Heat.

If the trade were to go through, it would put the game in the peculiar position of depicting its cover star playing for his old  team. Considering that NBA 2K18 has not even launched yet, this might be a bit of a marketing headache for developer 2K Sports.

If you are concerned that the copy of NBA 2K18 will not have the latest cover in the case of Irvine Trade, you can always check the copy from Canada. For the first time ever, Canada will get its own cover athlete: DeMar DeRozan of the  Toronto Raptors. Or you can grab one of the special versions that feature Shaquille O'Neal on the cover.

In any case, if you pre-order the game, you can get some nice bonuses. You will be able to play it 4 days earlier starting from September 15. In addition, you will receive the following content:

5,000 Virtual Currency
10 Weekly MyTeam Packs
Kyrie Outfit Pack

NBA 2K18 will be officially launched for everyone on September 19 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
