With E3 approaching rapidly, we are starting to see some news for the much anticipated, upcoming NBA 2K16 by Visual Concepts. Spike Lee, the Oscar nominated filmmaker is said to be part of the project in some capacity and figures to possibly play a role similar to Jay-Z as a Celebrity Executive Producer did in NBA2k13.

Spike is a well known figure in NBA circles and you can make the case that no fan of a single NBA team is more recognizable than Lee. His 1998 film “He got game” starred NBA Star Ray Allen and features multiple cameo appearances by other NBA personalities. Our friends at Polygon  broke the news originally and the covers feature 3 of the hottest stars currently in the NBA in James Harden of the Houston Rockets, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Steph Curry of the NBA best Golden State Warriors. It is unclear at this point if some sort of vote will take place to determine who graces the cover or if possibly all 3 will make the cut in some form.
