Indiana Pacers Star Paul George Lands Cover Of NBA 2K17

Indiana Pacers All-Star shooting guard Paul George will grace the cover of NBA 2K17 Standard Edition, 2K announced. 

NBA 2K17 marks the first time the power forward, who also played on the 2017 All-Star team in February, has been featured by himself on the cover of an NBA 2K game. Previously, Paul George was on the cover of 2K's MyNBA2K16's companion app and was a guest commentator at the NBA 2K16 Road to the Finals competition, which took place on June 1 last year.


George released a small statement regarding the huge honor:

"I have been playing NBA 2K as long as I can remember, and to be honored as cover athlete of NBA 2K17 is a blessing and vote of confidence that my hard work on and off the court has paid off," said George.

Aside from The Standard Edition with George on the cover, 2K is also releasing a special edition of the game—NBA 2K17 Legend Edition—celebrating five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant, and another Gold Edition also featuring The Black Mamba.

Here’s a breakdown of the prices and what fans will receive with the purchase of the three different pre-order bonuses, per Operation Sports:
