NBA 2K21 Cover Athlete Confirmed For Next-Gen

The New Orleans Pelicans’ forward was chosen to represent the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game as he represents a player ‘defining the next generation of NBA.’ Williamson has proven his dominance in power and speed in use a short period of time, and was also named the 2019 #1 Overall Pick, consensus 2019 National College Player of the Year.

Williamson commented:

Being on the cover of NBA 2K has been a dream since I was a kid and to be the first NBA 2K21 cover athlete for the next-generation of gaming is really special.

Since the day I joined Team 2K, I’ve wanted to make an impact on basketball culture both on and off the court, and being the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles lets me do that. I can’t wait to be part of this global phenomenon and hoop with all the ballers out there on NBA 2K21.
