Ben Wallace, ESPN NBA 2K5 Cover Athlete
ESPN Videogames (formerly Sega Sports) announced today that it has selected Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace to adorn the cover of the upcoming ESPN NBA 2K5.
Wallace helped lead the Detroit Pistons to the 2003/2004 NBA Championship over the highly-favored Los Angeles Lakers.
"I have been in their television commercials for the past two years," said Wallace, "so I was honored when they asked me to appear on the cover."
The game is being developed by Sega's Visual Concepts studio and will ship this November for the PlayStation 2, with a retail price of $19.99.
