The third cover athlete is likely to be on the Legends Edition.

There is really only one choice for the Legends Edition, the recently departed and sorely missed Kobe Bryant.

We expected the trio of cover athletes to be on each different edition of the game, but 2K has gone a different way.

Lillard will be the current-gen platform cover athlete. So come release day if you buy a NBA 2K21 on the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia, or PC you’ll have Lillard’s skywalking dunk on the cover.

There will be a next-gen cover star for PS5 & Xbox Series X when those consoles finally arrive.
