Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard chosen as a NBA 2K21 cover athlete

Updated: Apr 14, 2022

NBA2K20 cover athlete and Los Angeles Laker Anthony Davis teamed up with NBA2K to announce the three cover series on TikTok just last week. On Tuesday it was announced that Trail Blazer star Damian Lillard will be one of the three cover athletes. Lillard becomes the first cover athlete for the Trail Blazers.

Lillard is a five-time NBA All-Star, four-time All-NBA selection, was 2012-13 Rookie of the Year, and last season helped lead the Blazers to the Western Conference Finals. Lillard averages 24.0 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.2 rebounds for his career.

"It means a lot. It's one of those things that it's like a signature shoe. Everybody just don't get it." "To be able to join the line of the players that's been on the cover of 2K, it's an honor... Every time I come across a game that is my favorite year of a game, the way that you recognize it is by 'A.I. was on that cover' or 'Kobe was on that cover,' that was my favorite one. Just to join that group and have that honor, man, it's cool. Real cool."

NBA 2K21 is available for preorder on July 2 and will be released in October 2020.
