NBA 2K24 has announced that the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant will be the cover athlete for its special editions. The news was revealed in a tweet by NBA 2K, generating excitement among fans worldwide.
Meanwhile, the Kobe Bryant Edition and Black Mamba Edition are set to be the premium versions of the game. These offer unique features and content that are yet to be disclosed.
Cover Star Tradition Continues
While the standard edition cover star has not been revealed yet, it has become a tradition for NBA 2K to feature a current NBA player on the cover. Fans can expect the announcement of the standard edition cover star in the coming weeks, adding to the anticipation for the game’s release.
Honoring a Basketball Icon
Kobe Bryant’s appearance on the cover of NBA 2K24 is a fitting tribute to his remarkable basketball career. Known for wearing the number 24 jersey with the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant’s impact on the sport is also undeniable. The decision to feature Bryant on the cover follows a similar move made by NBA 2K last year when they showcased Michael Jordan on the cover of NBA 2K23, paying homage to his iconic number 23 jersey.
