Best NBA 2K Covers

Listed below are some of the best NBA 2K covers from the past couple of years.

NBA 2K23 

Michael Jordan was the main face in 2k23 NBA coverage on the Jordan challenge and championship edition. Both of these two designs are pretty cool. The Jordan edition was posted with his face, and the champion edition pictured Jordan’s jersey. Suns star Devin Booker also got a place in another 2k23 cover edition.

NBA 2k22

The Dallas Mavericks Luka Doncic is featured on the covers of the Cross-Gen Digital Bundle and the Standard Edition. And also, this year’s cover athletes, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kevin Durant, and Dirk Nowitzki, joined Luka Doncic and Candace Parker.

NBA 2K21

e Bryant, Damian Lillard from the Blazers, and Zion Williamson these three athletes were featured on NBA 2k21 three cover editions

NBA 2K20 

Everything about this cover was good except for the premise that Dwyane Wade was rude to several Chicago Bulls teammates.

NBA 2K19 

There have been several outstanding covers; the Legend’s Edition was one of the finest in 2k19. This cover perfectly captured James’ choice to sign as a free agent and all he fights in the court. 

NBA 2K18 – Standard Edition Cover

A lot of controversies surrounded 2k18’s standard edition. After Kyrie Irving sought and received a trade, 2K hurried to have him appear on the cover wearing a Boston Celtics jersey. Irving was initially featured as a teammate of the Cleveland Cavaliers. In terms of the cover, everything went quite well except for the Celtics.

NBA 2K17

This cover has a little amount of personal importance. However, it’s not the hottest. After Paul George’s horrific accident, he started back to success with the team Indiana Pacers give this cover meaning.

NBA 2K16

The backdrop visuals, which followed each player’s trip, were excellent, and the three distinct covers were lovely. The box postures might have been a bit more interesting, though.

NBA 2K15

Numerous Easter eggs could be found on the Kevin Durant solitary cover, but nobody realized it hinted at the PARK connections. This cover had no significant shortcomings overall.

NBA 2K14

Even though it had some terrible server problems, this NBA 2K cover is good. The series was first played on the latest version of the video gaming consoles, and the visual improvement was stunning. The 2K video game was the first to credit LeBron James as a cover athlete appropriately, and the trailer was their most excellent work to date.

NBA 2K13

Even if most popular players Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, and Blake Griffin are on the cover, it’s still reasonably dull. It has no character, making it a less favorite 2K red design for many fans.

NBA 2K12

NBA 2K12 is one of the favorite iterations of the game. These covers showcase the blurred effect holds its fullest potential. The fact that Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan are recognized in the same year is exemplary.

NBA 2K11

There are many reasons why this package art is fantastic. It reintroduced the best NBA player of all time, Michael Jordan, to video games and brought fans their first taste of 2K red taste.

NBA 2K10

Some NBA lovers consider this to be the finest 2K game ever. The artwork idea was outstanding, and it was the first instance in which 2K applied the blurring effect for the background picture. It’s a fantastic cover with the famous Kobe Bryant posture.


NBA 2K9 showed vast improvements over NBA 2K8. The Kevin Garnett cover still fell short of the subsequent two or three box cover designs in the history of the NBA franchise.


Even though NBA covers were good or bad in different seasons, favorite players were always there and loved by NBA fans. The covers on many of them were superb. We hope you will receive a good idea of the best NBA 2K covers from this post.
