After last year’s release of NBA 2K11 and its cover athlete, Michael Jordan, I thought that it would only go downhill from here (no offense to any other player in NBA history). However, 2K announced that not only is ‘His Airness’ back, but he’s coming along with legends Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.
The three athletes will grace three different covers for NBA 2K12 and they will be created by Adam Larson of Adam&Co. Larson has created dynamic artwork for galleries, magazines and various product advertising campaigns. His work has received numerous honors, including the Kelly Awards, Cannes Lions, Clio Awards, and two primetime Emmy nominations.
The only downside is that the Larry Bird and Magic Johnson covers for NBA 2K12 will only be available at launch in a limited quantity. Can’t wait to hear more information on the game itself soon.
