Solidly established as professional basketball's best player and a mortal lock for the hall of fame, LeBron James, after 10 years as an A-list superstar, will finally appear on the cover of a video game when NBA 2K14 hits shelves this autumn.

James will grace a packshot (full size at the end of this article) appearing on five different platforms—the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, arriving on the traditional first-Tuesday-in-October date of Oct. 1; and on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 when those new consoles arrive. Argent said NBA 2K14's Xbox One and PS4 versions will launch the same day those two consoles arrive. Their launch dates have not yet been announced.

Pretty funny video with Kerr and LeBron. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KiQEqZ-QuUo

NBA Live just stopped all together like 2 years ago. I still remember one clip where Boozer was standing still and dunked it from the FT line. After that they scrapped it, lol.

Even if NBA Live would just come out with something, it's better than having 1 release out and that company (2k) just recycling the same release from the year before. Competition makes things better.

On the flip side, the same could be said (and more needed IMO) for EA to have competition in the NFL video game industry because Madden is really repetitive. Myself, I would just like for them to keep pushing for better player models (graphics) every year, that would be a step in the right direction. But why should they when they know they will sell the release regardless.

Heh, those covers of old players are getting old. They need to focus on the future/present, not the past. Anyhow, LeBron deserves that cover. Took awhile but he should've been on 2k13.

Only problem was everything else was terrible when it came to Live. Unrealistic and they practically released the same game every year. The new live looks just as bad as the older versions on the next gen. systems.

He's the NBA's best player in the game, won the NBA Finals with the Heat last year and has brought them back this season. He deserves to do whatever he wants on the cover. Everyone under the sun knows who Lebron James is. This game will make 2K a lot of $$$ with Lebron James on the cover. That's all they care about.

About damn time, Lebron would've been on the cover last year maybe but was suppose to be on NBA Live one until they didnt drop it.

I'm getting 2K14 because I can't keep myself from doing so. But NBA 2K13 was my favorite NBA 2K game after 2K11 (12 sucked), so I have faith in 2K14. I want to see them make a new player customization layout. Back in the day you could edit the **** out of your player. Nowadays all customized players look the same.

That's all they care about.2k is going to make a lot of money regardless who's on the cover. People buy 2k every year. They could have a pony on the cover and those same people would buy it because $60 is worth a roster update for them.

I agree. They should just focus on making the present teams and present players look and play as close to how they do in real-life. They really need to improve the game modes and create-a-player system. The CAP's all look very similar and you can't really put much detail into them.

They've already got the past teams created, so they should just throw them in the game but not make a big deal about it. Focus on now.

I wonder how much they cashed out on getting Lebron to be on the cover. I heard he rejected before because he wasn't paid enough.

The cover is ugly though. Should have something better than him doing the chalk toss.

This cover just bothers the crap outa me. Im all for Lebron on the cover the timings good for it even if he loses. But the chalk toss is an absolutely horrible cover. It's so egotistical of a cover and it makes Lebron look bad imo. Just do an action shot like EVERY other year no reason to single Lebron's out and make it different.

and then an image of him in the background? this looks like a dam documentary not a video game.

EA always had the best covers anyways. wish Live didnt fall off, it was a more exciting game back in the day.

I guess anythings better then the Rose, Durant, Griffin idea tho.

If you meant names, here you go:

2K-2K4: Allen Iverson

2K5: Ben Wallace

2K6: Shaquille O'Neal

2K7: Shaquille O'Neal

2K8: Chris Paul

2K9: Kevin Garnett

2K10: Kobe Bryant

2K11: Michael Jordan

2K12: Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird

2K13: Derrick Rose, Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant

2K14: LeBron James

Off the top, but I think it's correct.

Flopping exists in 2k13. I do it all the time in online gameplay. When I am winning by a lot I just flop like all of my characters at once. You can do it by pressing the "set pick" button twice quickly.

ya people complain get used to it. Covers do matter to some, to me having to see an annoying cover can be bothersome. It's just a little thing that irks you.
It's pretty much the difference of being able to display it openly vs hiding it on it's side. Do you not care about album covers? books covers?

games more important obviously but you can't tell me if you're favorite player is on the cover it wont make you want it more..

Isn't being on the cover a curse for players? Agent Zero, VC, Steve Francis, Dwight Howard and T-Mac all got bad injuries after appearing on the cover and other guys saw rapid drop offs in their games afterward. And only one player has won a title in the season they appeared on the cover (Wade in 06).

That said... I don't believe in curses: Shaq, Duncan, Kidd and Garnett all had great careers after appearing on the cover (though none had success the year they were on it). And Parker and Wade have done fine since appearing on the cover.


I wonder how much they payed him?

When did anyone say he isnt the best player in the world?.. congrats to him and you. I dont understand whats pathetic or "sissy" about not wanting to purchase a game bcuz lebron is on the cover.. The differences in game play the last few years have not been noticeable, the only difference is the person on the cover, so if one doesnt like Lebron why would they pay $60 to get the same exact game (roster updates as well) with LBJ on the cover?.. I am not sure how ones priorities have to be F'd up to make a decision like that, its my money, I earned, I will spend it how I please.. In fact, i tend to think its the opposite, a grown man freaking out and running to the store cuz their favorite player is on the cover seems childish

I agree on most of this, especially the worshiping deal and that Lebron doesnt give a crap about Miami fans. He cared about Cleveland fans at first because that was his first time in NBA and his hometown. But what do you expect from Lebron anyway? I dislike inflated egos as well but how the hell can you not have an Ego with the life he's lived. I mean he's been doing big things since high school..he didnt go to college (where lots of people learn to be humble through diversity and experiences in that time). So what do you expect? The guys gonna have an ego, every player out of high schools gonna have an ego unless they randomly go on a visit to africa to be around poverty for a month or something.

just saying man Id have an ego to if I lived the life of Lebron james, you can say you wouldn't but in reality you would. Not to mention Miami is an egotistical city, the NBA is egotistical, tall people usually have bigger egos, and high school is egotistical..

what im trying to say is that get over the fact that NBA players have egos, they always have always will.

On the Video game cover curse.. it's real. Go look at the players that have been on 2k or Live throughout the years. Look at their following years... injury? decline? you bet. It's not as crazy as the Madden curse but it's real..

I mean even when they put Jordan on the 2k11 cover (released in 2010).. THATS WHEN JORDAN BOUGHT THE BOBCATS.

I agree on most of this, especially the worshiping deal and that Lebron doesnt give a crap about Miami fans. He cared about Cleveland fans at first because that was his first time in NBA and his hometown. But what do you expect from Lebron anyway? I dislike inflated egos as well but how the hell can you not have an Ego with the life he's lived. I mean he's been doing big things since high school..he didnt go to college (where lots of people learn to be humble through diversity and experiences in that time). So what do you expect? The guys gonna have an ego, every player out of high schools gonna have an ego unless they randomly go on a visit to africa to be around poverty for a month or something.

just saying man Id have an ego to if I lived the life of Lebron james, you can say you wouldn't but in reality you would. Not to mention Miami is an egotistical city, the NBA is egotistical, tall people usually have bigger egos, and high school is egotistical..

what im trying to say is that get over the fact that NBA players have egos, they always have always will.

There are exceptions (Tim Duncan of the top of my head), but overall I agree most NBA players have an ego bigger than their impact on this world. I suppose its not Lebron's fault, people have been telling him hes a god and a savior since he was 15 or 16.. In reality, the guy puts a ball in a hole. He doesnt remove cancerous tumors buried in a persons brain, he doesnt run into burning buildings and pull people out..he puts a ball in a hole. I guess i just wish he would make the same realization and appreciate what he has instead of griping about what he doesnt (a max contract, players around him etc.)...Lebron isnt in hs anymore, hes 28, he should understand by now that life goes beyond basketball and his on court accomplishments... Sadly, I do think lebron believes he is the "chosen one" and a "king"

Does he not affect your daily life?.. it's arguably worse to worship a guy that doesnt give a **** about you or any other Miami fan (He's there to get rings lets be real) then to hate on him...your calling people pathetic for not liking lebron bcuz hes an egotistical d-bag (which is 100% true)
-Chosen one tattoo
-Self proclaimed "King"
-Underpaid comments even tho he made 54 mill last year (w/ endorsements)
-Flops nightly
-Ditched his hometown then claimed 8 titles b4 he had 1 on national TV..

.. You not only let him affect ur daily life like the haters, you live vicariously thru his accomplishments and consider them ur own, that is much more pathetic..

with that being said...The cover is awful.. I also wont be buying it

WOAH. calm down. people may like him or dislike him, i don't really care because everyone has their own opinions.. but when you avoid buying a game because he is on the cover.. thats just sad and pathetic.

and lemme stop you there when you said I worship LeBron.. I dont. I support him, and the team. But i will NEVER go onto a thread and start worshipping lebron out of nowhere or start a lebron vs ____ debate unless it was already started.

I get it you dont like him, and you listed those reasons.. thats cool and all, but when you let him affect your daily life.. bro thats just said. and if you wont buy it because of the cover, than you also fit that category.

On the Video game cover curse.. it's real. Go look at the players that have been on 2k or Live throughout the years. Look at their following years... injury? decline? you bet. It's not as crazy as the Madden curse but it's real..

I mean even when they put Jordan on the 2k11 cover (released in 2010).. THATS WHEN JORDAN BOUGHT THE BOBCATS.

No good comes from being on the cover.

lol... yeah I don't think so.
we will see, I guess.

Even though people are on here saying they won't buy the game because LeBron is on the cover, they are just saying that. A cover isn't really going to stop people from buying the game.

lol well said. I mean if they don't buy the game because they prefer elite or hate 2k, well thats a diff story..
