With all this NBA hoopla and free agency talk, the revealing of the NBA 2K11 cover art may trump them all. That is because the cover features “THE GREATEST OF ALL-TIME.” Prepare yourself to feast your eyes on the cover for NBA 2k11, available October 5, 2010.
“Its exciting to see it all come together,” said Michael Jordan, a recent Hall of Fame inductee. “I am looking forward to seeing the final product, but my kids might have to give me some lessons.”
“We knew as soon as we signed Jordan that we needed to do something special for the cover,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “This could possibly be the most highly anticipated cover art in the history of sports games and we think the image we came up with delivers on every front. I think fans will be pleasantly surprised at how Jordan is actually used in game, as NBA 2K11 will pay homage to ‘His Airness’ in many ways, but the cover art represented our first chance to stop and honor him along the way.”
Let’s hope the game will play just as nicely as the cover looks.
