Default Cover Athelete NBA Live 08

Though, I don't play it anymore (I finally and thankfully converted to 2K7) NBA Live and EA are due to select a cover athelete for thier forthcoming NBA Live 08, and like I said a year ago, the player selected should be coming off a breakout, career year. Deron Williams and Dwight Howard come to mind. Who would you pick to grace the cover of Live 08, D-Will or Dwight?

It will probably be Kobe or Lebron.

It should be Kobe. They asked him last year I belive but he turned it down for the other one. I think they will ask him again this year.

Nash and Kobe are good picks.

I think it'll be Nash, he certainly deserves it. However, many NFL players will be avoiding the Madden 08 cover :)

Deron Williams and Dywane Wade have NO shot at the 2008 cover.

Deron Williams : Not aa All-star (yet), they need someone whos a household name.
Dywane Wade : Was on the 2006 cover, this is not like the 2K series where they will have a star represent them for a number of seasons (Iverson, Beg Ben, Shaq)


The top choices are.

1. LeBron James : has never appeared on a cover
2. Gilbert Arenas : same as above
3. Steve Nash : same as above
4. Kobe Bryant : was on NBA the Life 07 last season, might need a year of rest.
5. Dwight Howard : blah
6. Dirk Nowitzki : blah
7. Chris Bosh : blaw
8. Ray Allen : blah (was he on NBA Inside Drive or NBA the Life?)

I dont know for sure but I think there is a rule or something when you sign with one company that you cant be on another company also, cause some fo the players you listed have been on other covers and I dont think they can be on EA'S, but I dont know for sure or fact, I will try to look into that though.

Dirk has already been on the cover.

In Europe.

Anyway, who cares? Live sucks and has been getting worse for the past 4 or 5 years as EA keeps focusing on the bells and whistles of junk like their AllStar weekend instead of the actual gameplay. Now that I have switched to 2K its going to take a hell of a lot for them to win me (and many others) back.
