    These iconic players will grace the covers ofNBA 2K20, marking the latest edition of the game that has defined basketball culture for over two decades. All editions of NBA 2K20will be available worldwide on September 6, 2019.

    “I’m honored to be back representing NBA 2K,” said Davis. “Being picked as the face of NBA 2K20 means the world to me, and I’m excited for the fans to experience the best sports simulation in the world this Fall.”

    Legend Edition cover star Dwyane Wade added, “I’ve been blessed to spend 16 years of my life playing the game I love at the highest-level, and to culminate my career by joining NBA greats as an NBA 2K Legend Edition cover star makes me incredibly proud.

    2K really takes their time in releasing new details. Could be smart but I would like to know the emphasis this year. Hopefully more dribble hand off stuff as that is huge now and not done that well imo. The physical contact between and offensive and defensive player could be more dynamic and not quite so black and white although it has to be very hard to fine tune.

    I'm always amazed in how 2K can wait so long to release game info as well, Rudy. GamesCom takes place August 20-24 and that seems to be where a lot of 2K info has come out in recent years.


    I'm not a Heat fan, think D-Wade is OK, but that design for the Legend Edition is so good, I'd consider getting a poster of that. Unless things are added later, it's surprising there's no physical items as part of any Edition.

    My daughter will like the WNBA edition. She played a little of NBA Live 18 with the women and will probably be interested a bit more with this too. A local girl Bridget Carleton from Chatham (less than an hour away) was Iowa St player of the year, Big 12 player of the year and made the Conneticut Suns as a second rounder. There are better Canadians in the WNBA but it would be nice to play a game with her.

    I didn’t realize how poorly the game modelled muscular players vs skinny ones. Guys like Jimmy Butler are clearly lacking muscle. Eric Bledsoe should be more squat too.

    NBA 2K releases some ratings. Lebron and Kawhi are 1-2 at 97. Blake Griffin is 20th overall at 88 which I’m pretty OK with. I do think Westbrook is overrated at 90 and I’d take Blake over Gobert as well.
