2K Games unveiled with a trailer the first cover athlete of NBA 2K21: Damian Lillard. In total, the cover athletes of the new incarnation of the well-known series of basketball simulators will be three. Lillard is a five-time NBA All-Star and currently plays in the Portland Trail Blazers.
Dame D.O.L.L.A. Lillard logo. Sub Zero. Few players have the same versatility on the pitch, as well as being so dominant in the last minutes of the game, when the result is still hanging in the balance: Dame Time! Damian Lillard inflames the parquet and delights with verses and rhymes in the studio, perfectly marrying this year’s motto “NBA 2K21: Everything is Game”.
“This is a special moment in my NBA career,” says Lillard. “I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K for years, I love the way they represent every single aspect of basketball culture. I have always played 2K and it is an honor for me to be part of the greats who have succeeded each other as cover athletes over the years. I am grateful to all my fans and can’t wait for them to try the game. ”
Lillard will be on the cover of the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC versions of NBA 2K21. “There are many great players in today’s NBA, but Damian Lillard best represents the current generation of NBA superstars,” said Alfie Brody, NBA 2K Vice President of Marketing.
NBA 2K and Lillard are also working side by side for the activities of 2K Foundations, the program for the revaluation of basketball fields dear to the community, thanks to the work done in his hometown, Oakland in California.
