My friends, family, and fans all know how much I love NBA 2K. I remember, as a kid, getting so excited for the game to come out and see who was on the cover and it’s amazing to be a part of this great tradition, said James, who is currently defending the Miami Heat’s world championship in the NBA Finals. I love partnerships and opportunities that connect me directly with fans. I know from my own experience and now watching my own kids, NBA 2K is among the coolest and purest ways for fans to connect to the NBA. I love being a part of it.
Widely regarded as the best player today, LeBron James is the perfect choice for NBA 2K14, the biggest and best game in our NBA 2K franchise history, said Jason Argent, SVP of Sports Operations at 2K Sports. NBA 2K set the benchmark for sports gaming on the current-generation of consoles, and NBA 2K14 will continue that legacy on next-generation consoles. With two unique experiences that distinctly maximize the power of current and next-generation consoles, NBA 2K14 is basketball how and where our millions of fans want to play it.
