Phoenix Mercury's Diana Taurasi and Seattle Storm's Sue Bird will be sharing cover star duties for the WNBA Edition of NBA 2K23, marking the second time NBA 2K has had a cover celebrating WNBA stars.
The GameStop-exclusive NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition - available only in the US and Canada - will feature Phoenix Mercury two-time Kia WNBA Finals MVP, three-time WNBA Champion, WNBA all-time leading scorer, and five-time Olympic gold medalist Diana Taurasi, alongside Seattle Storm four-time WNBA Champion, thirteen-time WNBA All-Star, WNBA all-time assists leader, and five-time Olympic gold medalist, Sue Bird.
To celebrate Bird and Taurasi on the NBA 2K23 WNBA cover, NBA 2K is partnering with both players to donate $100,000 to ‘Every Kid Sports’, offering young people the opportunity to join youth basketball programs across America. The donation will cover youth basketball fees for more than 550 girls from income-restricted families
NBA 2K23 is due to release on 9th September, with the WNBA Edition bundling Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi's WNBA jerseys as in-game bonus DLC. More cover stars for NBA 2K23 are set to be revealed tomorrow.
