By now, 2K usually shares the announcement trailer and the first bits of info on its upcoming NBA 2K basketball game. However, the publisher has had fans waiting and searching for any bit of news on its newest game. Well, the wait might be about over as 2K revealed that the first cover athlete for NBA 2K24 will be the late and great Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bryant graces the cover of NBA 2K again
This isn’t the first time the legendary Laker graced the cover of NBA 2K. In July 2020, months after his passing, Kobe Bryant was given his own cover on NBA 2K21, which was named the ‘Mamba Forever Edition.’
However, this time, Kobe Bryant will be featured on two covers of the NBA 2K24, remembering one of the best players to wear the number 24. Not much is known about 2K’s upcoming basketball game, but we can speculate that NBA 2K24 will have some sort of ‘Kobe Challenge’ mode similar to the Jordan Challenge in NBA 2K23.
Rumored NBA 2K24 official cover star
The official cover star for NBA 2K24 has still yet to be announced, but we have a feeling it’s right around the corner. Many fans are speculating that it could be the finals MVP Nikola Jokić, or maybe the league MVP Joel Embiid.
Nevertheless, we are excited about NBA 2K24 and the new ideas 2K and Visual Concepts will bring to the court. Since the first cover star has been announced, we can expect more news on the game soon. Make sure you stay tuned to Sports Gamers Online for more.
