NO SURPRISES here.
Video game developer 2K Sports has revealed the late, great Kobe Bryant as the final cover athlete for the upcoming NBA 2K21.
It's a fitting tribute for Bryant, who passed away in a tragic helicopter accident late January. The Lakers superstar was just 41 years old.
Bryant joins Damian Lillard, who was revealed as the cover for the "current gen" edition of the games (that is, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia), and Zion Williamson, who will front the "next gen" edition of the games (the upcoming PlayStation 5 and Xbox One Series X).
Kobe Bryant will grace the front cover of the "Current Gen Mamba Forever" edition of NBA 2K21.
Game preorders are open now.
