Lebron James Named NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition Cover Athlete

NBA 2K is turning twenty this year and to celebrate they have announced LeBron James as the cover athlete for the 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19.

The announcement is accompanied with a spoken word tribute to King James featuring 2 Chainz, Rapsody and Jerreau.

NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition will cost $99.99 and feature the following:

Digital items:
– 100,000 Virtual Currency
– 50,000 MyTEAM points;
– 20 MyTEAM League Packs (delivered one a week)
– Sapphire LeBron James MyTEAM Card;
– 10 MyTEAM Heat Check Packs (delivered one a week beginning at the start of the NBA season)
– 5 LeBron-themed murals for MyCOURT;
– LeBron MyCOURT design;
– King’s Collection – Nike LeBron apparel & footwear (25 pairs!)

Physical Items:
– LeBron NBA 2K19 poster;
– NBA 2K sticker sheet;
– Custom Wristband featuring LeBron’s chosen words.

It’s a logical choice for 2K Sports to go with Lebron James on the cover as he is currently competing in his 8th straight NBA Finals appearance. And most likely a very intentional move, the cover only features James’ face as he has the opportunity to opt out of his current contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer.

NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition launches on September 7th and the standard edition launches on September 11th.
