Time to bring the thunder. Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook will be gracing the cover of NBA Live 16.

The four-time all-star will be joining the ranks of Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving NBA Live’s most recent cover athletes.

B-ball fans should expect more news about NBA Live 16 during EA’s Press Conference next week.

EA Sports VP of Marketing Anthony Stevenson explains why Westbrook was the perfect fit for Live 16:

NBA Live 16 is all about self-expression, and who better embodies that than Westbrook, both on and off the court? Russell plays every game like he has something to prove. Our team is building NBA LIVE the exact same way, so we’re thrilled to have him as an ambassador for our game.
