NBA 2K16 Cover was released today. The game is set to Feature 3 NBA All-Stars on the cover with a story written and directed by acclaimed Director Spike Lee. Here are a few select quotes from the full story found here on ESPN as well as each of the three new covers!

“They asked me,” Lee matter-of-factly noted during a recent phone interview from Chicago, where he’s in production on his next project, “Chiraq.”

Lee said the game’s story centers on a basketball player named Frequency Vibrations, whose personal exploits off the court are just as chaotic as the game on it.

“It’s about the trials and tribulations of life on a big stage with the money, fame, temptations, family members, the press, fans, all that stuff,” Lee said.

“I didn’t really realize how quick it was going to be,” Lee said. “We didn’t have to do costumes, makeup or hair. We didn’t have to move props around. We didn’t have to move from location to location. Everything was just there.”

Despite the writer-director’s penchant for gritty storytelling, “NBA 2K16” won’t be aimed only at adults. Lee worked within creative parameters set forth by the NBA and 2K Games.
