Portland Trailblazers' Damian Lillard Will Be The Cover Athlete For NBA 2K21

Anthony Sain

According to a report from Shams Charania of the Athletic, Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lillard will be the cover athlete for NBA 2K21.

"It means a lot," said Lillard when asked about the honor. "It's one of those things like a signature shoe. Everybody just don't get it.  Being on the cover of NBA 2K is an honor because every time I come across a year that is my favorite game, the way that you recognize it is by 'A.I was on that cover' or 'Kobe was on that cover' so just to join that group and have that honor is cool  - real cool."
