It only feels right.
Michael Jordan will appear as a cover athlete for NBA 2K23, marking the third time the famous game will honor the greatest to ever play the game (he was also, technically, featured on a special edition cover in 2016).
According to the official NBA 2K page, Jordan’s will be featured on both the Michael Jordan Edition and Championship Edition.
I truly can’t wait to see what the 2K makers have in store with the year of the GOAT on the horizon. Many fans of the long-running series look back at 2K11 – the first time Jordan appeared on the cover – as arguably the best edition to date. Indeed, the bar was set pretty high with that game, but bringing Jordan back into the fold might be the best way to reach it.
Anyway, the trailer below is a minute of awesomeness and nostalgia, so give it a watch!
