It appears Paul George will join Kobe and grace a NBA 2K17 video game cover
The Pacers superstar will apparently be on a video game cover for the first time
In April, 2K Sports announced that Kobe Bryant will be gracing the cover of the "legends edition" of NBA2K17. Pacers All-Star Paul George lent a hand in the announcement, starring in a promotional video that showcased Bryant's video game cover. Well, it now looks like George may have a larger role in the game than just helping out with a promo.
According to a now-deleted listing on Sony's website, George, like Bryant, will also be on the cover:
If this screen grab is true, this will be the first time George has appeared on the cover of any video game besides MyNBA2K16, the mobile version of NBA 2K. However, 2K Sports still has not officially announced whether George is indeed on the cover. Their official announcement will take place on Wednesday.
George though, would be a solid choice. Playing in his first full season after suffering that horrifying leg injury two summers ago, George had a bounce-back year. He made the All-Star team and was selected to the All-NBA third team. George was also a big-time performer in the playoffs, helping the Pacers to push the Raptors to seven games in the first round. And after such a stellar season, appearing on the cover of NBA2k17 will be a fitting tribute to George, who has shown in the last year that he is still a superstar in the league.
