Default NBA 2k8 Cover Star..... Chris Paul!


Background pic from NBA 2k8's official website, and the CP3 pic fits the cutout exactly.

Chris Paul was ranked 4th in IGN's possible NBA 2K8 cover players. Number 3 was Tim Duncan, Number 2 was Lebron James and Number 1 was Dwight Howard.

Besides, when he won the NBA Street Homecourt tournament, he said his goal was to always be on the cover of a videogame. Maybe 2K can make his dream come true.

Why he won't… His actual quote was: "Hopefully after this, the gaming companies will see how much I enjoy to play, how good I am at their games, and maybe one day EA will put me on the cover. That's a goal of mine, and as much as I play videogames, it's something I've always wanted, to see my face on the cover of an EA Sports videogame. Hopefully it will happen some day soon." As you can see, he was talking about EA Sports, but this was at an EA party that he was being paid to attend. He was just walking the company line and I'm sure if 2K came calling, he'd be down. But still, like the Gilbert quote about 2K, once these things get out there, do you want people bringing them back up?

Chris Paul, they should've gotten an All-Star?

I was just as suprised. My hope was for Duncan, LeBron, Dwight, or Nash.
Maybe I'm wrong, and it's just a cut-out they used, and it will be a different player .

Maybe. But if that IS the Chris Paul cut out, he is for sure the cover player.

For some ridiculous reason, they always nominate an injured player(from the past season) that plays a key factor to their teams further success. Just look at the past cover boys for both respective gaming companies (EA and 2K).
