How Will Kyrie Irving Fare as 'The Man' in Boston?
Thursday September 7th, 2017

You might know by now that Kyrie Irving has been traded from the Cavs to the Celtics.

2K Sports knows this too, and that is why they have smartly pivoted from their Kyrie game cover in a Cavs jersey to a Kyrie cover in a Celtics jersey.

It’s not clear exactly when this new version hits shelves — the game itself drops Sept. 15 — but safe to say, the Cavaliers edition might be a bit of a collector’s item now.

This will hopefully end the streak of 2K cover athletes switching teams. But stranger things have happened.
