NBA 2K19 cover star revealed!

-

Giannis Antetokounmpo – a name that just trips off the tongue, or at least it will because the Greek Freak is continuing his journey up the stardom ladder with a place on the cover of NBA 2K.

Becoming the first international star to hit the cover of an NBA 2K title with a place on the front of the Standard Edition of NBA 2K19, the Milwaukee Bucks standout and two-time NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo will very soon become a proper household name.

He’s well on the way to that already mind and as the first player in NBA history to finish a regular season ranked in the top 20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks, Antetokounmpo has earned the nickname “Greek Freak” for his incredible athletic abilities. And in keeping with the NBA 2K19 creative theme, the cover features key words and phrases which hold significance for Giannis, including “Father’s Legacy,” “Fear the Deer,” “Phenom” and “Athens,” paying homage to his hometown in Greece.

“I am honored to be the first international player featured on the cover of NBA 2K19,” said Antetokounmpo. “I love playing NBA 2K so this means a lot to me. I have worked hard to earn recognition in the NBA and being on the cover of NBA 2K19 is a dream come true.”

Antetokounmpo has come from humble beginnings, from selling watches on the streets of Athens, to now winning over many NBA fans with his tremendous skill and genuine personality. He has also gained the respect of his fellow players, earning multiple honors including All-Rookie Second Team, NBA All-Defensive Second Team, All-NBA Second Team (twice) and Most Improved Player.

“Giannis is the future of the NBA and his drive and athleticism have made him an undeniable force in the league,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “He’s the perfect cover athlete and we’re excited to feature him as our very first international cover star, as NBA 2K has a strong following with fans all over the world.”

If you wish to see Giannis on the front of your copy of NBA 2K19 and want to get your money in early, then you will be pleased to know that any pre-orders for the NBA 2K19 Standard Edition include the following items:

  • 5,000 Virtual Currency
  • 10 MyTEAM packs (delivered one a week)

I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
