We don't often get involved in the whole "who's the latest sports star on the game cover" mini-game around these here parts, but for once, we can't help ourselves.
2K Sports today told CNBC that the legendary Michael Jordan, one of the world's most successful athletes and one of the biggest sports brands ever, will be the cover star of NBA 2K11.
Jordan, or Sir Michael Jordan of Basketballshire as we like to call him, is obviously delighted to be back
in the money on the court... albeit the virtual one.
The now Charlotte Bobcats owner stated, "It’s an honor to be featured on the cover of NBA 2K11... I have no doubt that NBA 2K11 will be a big hit with gamers and basketball fans alike. I’m looking forward to getting back out on the court, virtually."
2K Sports has undoubtedly been the leader in this field for quite some time, despite EA's dominance in every other sport known to man, and it looks like this trend may continue - if only in terms of sales. Not even a name change can help EA and their NBA title this year... or can it? Who are we kidding, it's Michael-frickin'-Jordan!
NBA 2K11 is coming October 5th.
