We recently reported that the NBA 2K9 cover star was to be announced during the pre-game show for Game One of the 2008 NBA Finals and the honour went to 11 time NBA All Star Kevin Garnett.
In a car salesman-esque rant, Garnett said "NBA 2K is where it's AT! End of story." "It's the game I play, the game my friends play, and the game anyone in the league serious about videogames plays. NBA 2K is the real deal, and until 2K Sports finds a way to plant an elbow in your chest, it's the closest thing to actually being there on the court. I can't tell you how pumped I am to be on the cover of NBA 2K9 – it's a real honor. Now watch out! Because this fall 2K Sports and I are going to deliver the best basketball video game out there, period."
You heard it here first, Garnett's first move as spokesman and cover star is to get 2K to allow players to elbow chunks out the opposition. Not gonna happen Kevin!
Congrats to all those who guessed right and congrats to the big man himself. Oh, for those that don't know, Celtics won 98-88 so a perfect day for Garnett. Game 2 is on Sunday at 9 ET, don't miss it... Or do, see if I care.
