Just recently a rumour emerged that the face of the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition would be none other than LeBron James, and that the game would be released on September 7, with the standard edition being released four days after, on September 11. Now those rumours have been confirmed by 2K Sports and Visual Concepts, and we've also received some more information about the Anniversary Edition.

The following digital items are included in the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition:

  • 100,000 Virtual Currency;

  • 50,000 MyTEAM points;

  • 20 MyTEAM League Packs (delivered one a week)

  • Sapphire LeBron James MyTEAM Card;

  • 10 MyTEAM Heat Check Packs (delivered one a week beginning at the start of the NBA season)

  • 5 LeBron-themed murals for MyCOURT;

  • LeBron MyCOURT design;

  • King's Collection - Nike LeBron apparel & footwear (25 pairs!)

Physical items include:

  • LeBron NBA 2K19 poster;

  • NBA 2K sticker sheet;

  • Custom Wristband featuring LeBron's chosen words.

This is the second time LeBron graces the cover of an NBA-game, the last time being on the cover of NBA 2K14. "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, in the official press release. "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."

Is James a good choice for the cover?
