Kobe Bryant became the third of three cover athletes for NBA 2K21 with two separate “Mamba Forever” editions — one current and one “next-gen.”
The late Lakers legend was also the cover athlete for NBA 2K10 and the Legend edition for NBA 2K17. Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard was the first cover star announced this week, as he will appear on the current generation of gaming systems (Playstation 4 and XBOX One). Pelicans rookie star Zion Williamson was named as the second cover athlete, and he will appear on Playstation 5 and XBOX Series X editions.
