On Tuesday, 2K announced Cleveland Cavaliers superstar and the NBA's best player LeBron James is the cover athlete for NBA 2K19's 20th Anniversary Special Edition. This is James' second time on the cover of the game. Read on for more details of the special edition and the items that will be included.
The Special Edition will release on September 7, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. That is 4 days earlier than the Standard Edition.
This is James' second time on the cover of the game. He also appeared on the cover of NBA 2K14, which marked the introduction to the current generation of consoles.
As you can see, 2K didn't go with an in-jersey look this year. With James’ impending free agency set to be the biggest talking point of the off-season, and with the very real chance that he’ll sign for a team that isn’t Cleveland, 2K got ahead of this potential scenario by only showing his face, not his jersey.

This is easily the most personal cover 2K has ever produced. It goes beyond the court and the phrases surrounding James' face are all connected to him and the things he stands for on and off the court.
“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a little kid,” said James. “We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me – from my family to where I come from and words I live by. I’m honored my journey can be part of this special time in 2K history and I’m excited for fans to see it.”
“This year marks the 30th anniversary for the development team at Visual Concepts and the 20th for the NBA 2K series, so it was important to commemorate this milestone by partnering with the most iconic athlete of this generation in LeBron James,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “LeBron’s carefully crafted wording on the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition cover encapsulates the passion and drive that have elevated him to all-time greatness making him the perfect cover star.”
